This Week The Plan

First, let me say that I just opened up our credit card bill and it was a whopping $500 less than usual. Good news especially since our auto insurance bill came today as well! Anyway I'm feeling super, super, hopeful that we can knock down our spending without ever even feeling it. Yay!
Second, I scrubbed the kitchen floor (on my knees people!) and washed all the downstairs wood floors on Friday. There is no point to that other than the fact that I did it and need to put that out there.
Third, Mr F and I have started another blog to document our purging process. You can find it HERE.

Okay onto this week..


Menu:

Monday - Chicken & Broccoli w/ Garlic Sauce

Tuesday - Brown Sugar & Ginger Salmon, Stirfry Veggies & Springrolls

Wednesday - Kid date night

Thursday - Sesame Scallops w/ Peanut Noodles & asparagus

Friday - takeout

Saturday - Chicken Caesar Salad

Sunday - Tomato & Meatball Soup w/ crescent rolls


Diet & Exercise:
I'm ready to buckle down. I've been tired and I feel like I'm lagging behind my goals every week. I'm not sure how much energy I have to put into increasing my cardio (I'm really tired people) but I am going to focus on increasing my pilates workouts (finally). I'm also going to go back to serious calorie counting and stick to 1850 calories. I've gone back to mindless eating and I really need to rein it on in.

Wondering about last week's walking backward challenge. I did do it. You can watch me HERE. I will say I was sore in the knees for a few days afterward but not in a "I pulled something" sort of way but in a "I just used some muscles I've never used before" sort of way.


Errands & Chores:

Monday - eye doctor, laundry

Tuesday - grocery shopping, vacuum

Wednesday - grocery shopping, vacuum stairs

Thursday - clean sink & stove, post office

Friday - clean bathroom

Saturday & Sunday - PURGE

Congratulations on the bill! (That just doesn't sound right!)

And was everything okay at the eye doctor?

Mrs Furious said...

Ashely,
Yes! Thanks for asking :)
Her surgeon was really happy with the results.

P.O.M. said...

You go grocery shopping twice? Two different stores I'm assuming??

Actually, sometimes I go a couple times a week too. Because I can never figure out what I want to eat until that night. Or I find an exciting new recipe on your blog and have to go buy the stuff!

Yippy for good eye results for kid!

P.O.M.,
I'm so freaking crazy I actually go to three. 2 on Tuesday and the other on Wednesday.
They each have different things I *need*.

and thanks on the Kid front :)

So glad to hear the good news on Kid and her eye appt.

I just got back from my pilgrimage to Target, Trader Joe's and 3 other grocery stores because I am insane(and not one store carries all the stuff I want.)

Unfortunately not Whole Foods :(

By the way, I just bought those Plumsweet dark chocolate things. Ummm, there is a reason why I weigh 40 pounds more than you and that would be things like how I nearly ate the whole bag in the car between stores. They are THAT good. Plus, that was my dinner. But still....

That is great news that all is well with Kid...always a relief!! Congrats on the bill!!! You know...I am tired too...I keep chalking it up to the weather flucuations...I feel like I could fall asleep standing up and when I talk it sounds like its coming out of my mouth at half speed!!! Maybe I need to get to bed earlier...

Julie,
I told you those things were good. The 1st time I had them I was at a friends so I had to control myself. The other day I ate 1/2 a bag while folding laundry. They really go down fast!



Kiki,
I stayed up until about 1 AM both weekend nights reading this old woman's blog.... believe me I really regretted that when Baby started her night wakings. I'm back to the Unisom tonight!
