Last week went pretty well considering my mental state and over all exhaustion. I mostly kept to my menu and cleaning projects. I did not do all that crazy working out... I was just plain too tired and something had to go. Triumphantly I did keep my desk cleared off ALL week.
This week is going to be a little crazy. My Dad is coming in town for the weekend and I'm going to have to do a more thorough cleaning before then! I'm going *easy* on the food prep this week to compensate and using more freezer and pantry staples to offset the additional expense of entertaining this weekend.
Here we go...
Monday - Spaghetti & Meatballs, steamed broccoli & carrots
Tuesday - Cornflake Crusted Tilapia (from freezer), sweet potato fries & green beans
Wednesday - Kid's Date Night
Thursday - Salmon Noodle Casserole, "fried" apples
Friday - Pizza Night
Saturday - Potato & Leek Soup, homemade bread, salad
Sunday - Vegetable soup, leftover bread
Sweet Jesus... what do I not have to clean?!?!
Monday - make Guest room presentable (ie no storage bins everywhere!), vacuum
Tuesday - vacuum upstairs
Wednesday - clean stove & Kitchen floors
Thursday - vacuum, make basement presentable
Friday - clean bathroom & kitchen
Anyone up for a serious cardio challenge?!? Heather and Robin are in and are going to try and workout the Mrs F way. I've been slacking off with the holidays and then Baby's crazy late night torture sessions.... but it is time for me to kick it back up.
This week I'm going to do 6 cardio sessions of 60 minutes (or MORE). If you all want to know how I dropped 10% body fat in 4 months this is how I did it. Seriously people I have ONE hour in the day to myself.... ONE!!!... and I use it to workout. It isn't what I WANT to do but more days then not it is what I do. You can find one hour to do this. I'll write more on this coming up this week. I'm not saying strength training isn't important ... it is... but if you've got fat to lose you are going to lose it MUCH faster with LONG cardio sessions. You can always add strength on top of that or add it back in place of some cardio training when you start seeing the fat loss results you are looking for. This is just my opinion folks and what worked for me!
Okay so I'm pumping out 6 days of cardio this week. I'm doing it! Check my sidebar for proof.
Special Cleaning Challenge:
#1 keep desk cleared off all week
#2 empty out "cubby of shame"
