Well I made it through last week and that is really all I can say. I tried to be more frugal with my grocery spending but on Friday I went and spent a good amount on produce and such and realized that in order to cut back on my spending I was cutting back on the best parts of our diet. So I'm just going to go back to focusing on buying as many whole foods as I can and not worry too much about what it costs. I did make some pretty good headway clearing out my freezer though so it wasn't all for naught. I am going to go back to some of my "dieting" ways and NOT buy pre-made cookies and snacks... impulse buys mostly anyway. And I realized that a lot of the time I buy produce to round out the kids diets but I don't buy enough to round out mine. Mostly because I'm being cheap and this week I'm going to focus on being sure I have enough fresh produce so that I can have some at EVERY meal and not just dinner. So this week my focus is going to be on getting my diet under control and getting back on track with the exercise portion of my "lifestyle".
On to the plan...
Monday - Spaghetti & Meatballs w/ steamed broccoli & carrots
Tuesday - Salmon Noodle Casserole
Wednesday - Kid & Mr F's date night
Thursday - V Day... hmm I'm not sure what we're doing
Friday - Huevos Rancheros
Saturday - Chicken & Corn Bread potpie
Sunday - Sweet Potato & Molasses Beef Stew
Diet & Exercise:
Okay I'm getting back on track and I'm going to get serious about lowering my body fat %.
So this week I'm going to do 4 - 60+ Cardio workouts and 2- 60 minute pilates workouts.
On the diet front I'm going back to daily food journaling. I've been feeling like crap lately and have gotten into a really bad cycle of caffeine and sugar consumption it is wrecking havoc on my whole system. This week I'm counting my protein grams and really trying to focus on making good choices. I'm not going to be having any baked goods or soda this week. And I'm going to get more whole fruits and vegetables for my breakfasts and lunches.
Chores & Errands:
I need to get my desk back in order and get my paperwork squared away. Hopefully I'll get this done TODAY.
Also I need to figure out what is shedding all over my carpet. I'm not kidding when I say I need to vacuum just about every other day and I can't figure out what is going on! Anyone have a Roomba ... and if so does it work? I need to know!
Monday - DESK!!!!!!!!!!! & Laundry
Tuesday - Grocery Shopping & vacuuming
Wednesday - Vacuum upstairs & clean downstairs floors (no really it needs to be done)
Friday - Finish Desk and Paperwork!
Saturday - Finally clean out my cubby of shame!
