Okay... I"m a little discombobulated after having my Dad in town. FYI...Mr F is home for MLK day too and you all know that completely throws me off!
So here is how everything went down:
We ended up getting everything clean and picked up... VICTORY!!! Our basement is currently kicking total ass, although I have no idea what Mr F did with all the stuff and I kind of fear that our storage rooms are potentially filled with random shit... but oh well we'll deal with that later. It is almost child safe now too.... NEAR VICTORY!!! I managed to keep my desk cleared off for two straight weeks.... VICTORY!!! I did not, however, have time to clean out my cubby of shame and that is on the docket for this week.... TOTAL FAILURE.
Menu wise I think I stuck on target. I try pretty hard to be prepared yet flexible... a delicate balance... when entertaining. In the end it usually means I spend more money on "junk food" and drinks and what not but I'm just one of those people who likes to always have something coming out of the oven to snack on and stuff when people are visiting.
Exercise?!?... well lets just say it didn't pan out for me this week. You can watch my video confessional but the short end of it is that with company and Kid's fevers I kind of scraped the last few... okay 3... workouts. I was disappointed because I really wanted to join in the challenge and help motivate everyone to give it a try. But life happened. I really did want to workout everyday but I felt it was rude and infringing on the "family time" so I wasn't able to fit it in. The lesson learned from this is that everyone has things that come up that can mess with their best intentions. Today is a new week and the opportunity to start fresh.
Okay this week's plan:
Monday - Tomato & Meatball Soup
Tuesday - Pork Tenderloin w/ rice pilaf & green beans
Wednesday - Kid's Date Night
Thursday - Brown Sugar & Ginger Salmon w/Asian veggie stirfry & spring rolls
Friday - Take out
Saturday - Creamy Chicken Pasta
Sunday - Sweet Potato & Molasses Beef Stew
Cleaning and Chores
Monday - Laundry & vacuuming
Tuesday - Grocery Shopping & sheets
Wednesday - Grocery Shopping & vacuuming
Thursday - Clean out Pantry
Friday - Put Away All Laundry
Okay so I want to be a role model for the "Crazy Cardio" to help you all see that it can be done. But here is the deal I've moved past working out for weight loss and I need to put more into my Pilates training to help both get stronger and to help manage my pain. So here is my plan...
Monday - 60 min Cardio
Tuesday - 45 min Pilates
Thursday - 60 min Cardio
Friday - 30 min Pilates
Saturday - 60 min Cardio
Sunday - 30 min Pilates
My goal is to workout for 5 days this week. I'm scheduling 6 days since I would like to reach that and I want to have as much in place to help me achieve that.... but.... I do realize that things may happen and I'll just do the workout for that day regardless of whether I skipped some days or not.
