This Week The Plan

This week is going fast and I'm kind of freaking out. The more I think about it the more stressed I am ... so hopefully this will be short and to the point. Kid's birthday party is this Sunday and I have a LOT to do before then, including finishing her Medusa costume... I mean starting it!
Review shmew... you all know that last week wasn't great and I stopped working out. Moving on to this week...

I'm cutting myself some serious slack with this week's menu, I know I'll be way to stressed by the end of the week to make dinner especially when I start baking for the party!

Monday- Chicken and Pasta with mushrooms, carrots and peas (this was good I'll try and post the recipe this week)

Tuesday- Meatball Subs and Salad

Wednesday- Kid F & Mr F date night

Thursday- Brown Sugar and Ginger Salmon w/ rice and sesame snap peas

Friday- pizza night

Saturday (aka night before party freak out) take out of some kind

Sunday- Salmon Noodle Casserole (or something else pantry related)

Party Planning:

Tuesday - hit thrift store for green or grey sweatsuit for Medusa body, and stretchy gloves

Wednesday- go to bank for 3 rolls of pennies for treasure hunt

Thursday - Joanne Fabrics for safety pins, brass colored spray paint (for wings), felt for talons and feathers... possible fake creepy fingernails, and elastic

Friday - bake and ice cookies for goodie bags

Saturday- order balloons, bake and ice cupcakes, and get pumpkins

Sunday - clean, have party, cry that my baby is turning five :(


Seriously I think I'm going to have a reasonably hard time fitting it in. I did workout today and I'm going to shoot for 2 more days of cardio on Tuesday and Sunday and then I'll just call it a week. Most nights I'm going to be busting my ass making brass wings and claws.


Ummmm... what do you think?!?
At least I already did all of laundry today and vacuumed the entire house. I need to clean the bathroom and the kitchen before the weekend.... hopefully on Friday. And obviously I'll need to vacuum again. This would be the bare minimum!

Chicken and Pasta with mushrooms, carrots and peas

Yummy indeed!

You mentioned take out which reminded me - for healthy fast food, I highly recommend McDonald's premium salads. For some reason they've discontinued the southwest salad, but the asian salad is really good too. I think it's about 450 calories.

On the other hand, avoid Hardee's salads. Over 600 calories, IIRC.

I've been thinking of compiling a little "cheat sheet" I can have in my purse so I don't have to suffer through any more ordering nightmares. Often times when I don't know what the calories of anythingthen my will power kind of flies out the window... when I am informed I have a much easier time sticking to my limits.

You have too much on your plate this week to try to be Superwoman. You would just make yourself crazy and risk having a meltdown at the end of the week. Not a good idea. Do what you can and that's good enough! :)

You better take tons of pictures of this Medusa costume. You know I'm expecting you to whip out something totally bad-ass.
