Arrgh... I've already tried to type this out and get it up once today. Damn Blogger.
Well last night I finally finished my part of the taxes. Thank God that is over... what a goddamn nightmare. Mr F still needs to finish up his business end but I'm done and I can relax.
Purging took a back seat to tax preparation this weekend but fear not we have not thrown in the towel. I have finished clipping all the recipes out of my massive back issue collection and the carcasses will be hitting the curb this Thursday!
On the health front Baby is much improved and has been sleeping much better. 6 years of sleep deprivation down... 2 more to go!
Kid is off of school all week, the weather is finally GORGEOUS, and we'll be heading out a lot the next few days. I'm even planning to load 'em up and take them out to the Toledo Zoo.... such a beautiful zoo well worth the hours drive.
Okay on to this week...
Monday - whole grain penne w/ sauteed peppers & onions, peas & tomato sauce
Tuesday - Trader Joe's Chinese take-out style chicken, rice & broccoli
Wednesday - Chicken Noodle Soup & Apple Carrot Muffins
Thursday - Chicken Caesar Salad w/ Homemade Bread
Friday - take out
Saturday - take out
Sunday - Meatball Soup w/ crescent rolls
Diet & Exercise:
I'm back on board. I'm back to calorie counting, cookie dough eating, & increased exercising. I've got a doable but challenging goal in place and I'm moving forward. With the turn in the weather I'm really going to try and see how much activity I can fit into my days with the kids so I can enjoy the evenings a bit more. I'm still going to schedule 3 hardcore treadmill workouts and one full pilates just to be sure I keep the intensity up. I'm going to start making Mondays a pilates workout day and try to keep that consistent... I've still be having trouble trading off a cardio for a strength and I think putting it at the start of the week might help. I've also started doing sit ups and push ups and tri dips sprinkled through my day... why was I not doing that before?
Errands & Chores:
Well having Kid home does throw a wrench into my usual routine....
Monday - vacuum, clean downstairs bathroom
Tuesday - grocery shop, laundry
Wednesday - zoo
Thursday - vacuum, clean floors
Friday - vacuum upstairs
Sat & Sunday - sell my body on the corner in efforts to earn quick cash to pay taxes
