Okay I'm definitely feeling overwhelmed. I'd like to know "for sure" about the job so I can just move forward with it. The next month or two are bound to be incredibly stressful (and exciting... but mostly stressful) and it is taking a lot of mental energy to not let my mind just become completely engulfed in move related to-dos. I think it is my natural instinct when confronted with something so time consuming to want to just give up completely on my menus and weekly plans. It would be so much easier to just get take-out every night for the next two months. We've done that before... and it isn't that it is detrimental to our diets... it just is a slippery slope. Once you let go of one part of your life the whole thing can just come crashing down and pretty soon you feel overwhelmed by every thing and not just the move. So with that in mind I am going to endeavor to keep my plans coming... although I'm going to focus on very, very simple dinners. There are only so many hours in the day and I'm going to forgo cleaning for the time being and replace it with packing/purging. I'm also going to schedule 4 workouts a week. I do find I am actually more energetic and more likely to get stuff done after my evening workout then when I skip it... so here's to hoping that holds true. And if nothing else it will hopefully help take the edge off my anxiety.
Oh I forgot to mention my in-laws are coming on Friday. And no that probably won't be helpful.
Onto this week:
Monday - Tomato & Meatball Soup w/crescent rolls
Tuesday - Chicken Caesar Salad
Wednesday - Kid & Mr F date night
Thursday - Salmon, stirfry veggies, spring rolls
Friday - Sunday - Mr F's parents are in town... I'll be winging it...
Diet & Exercise:
Okay last week sucked. Not entirely my fault with Mr F's absence and all but this week I really need to get back on track.
I have been working on giving up my hardcore dessert addiction and have been doing a lot better. I did fall of the wagon while Mr F was gone... but I did learn that I eat about 300 calories less a day if I go to bed by 11 versus 1. Something to keep in mind. This week I'm shooting for M & T long cardio workouts, Th a long pilates workout, and F a short running workout. We'll see what I can fit in on the weekend... probably not much.
Errands & Chores:
Monday - grocery shopping (I'm really going to work on only hitting 1 store a week), laundry
Tuesday - Target returns, clear out Kid's bedroom
Wednesday - clear out Upstairs bathroom, vacuum
Thursday - clean Kitchen, wipe down floors (hey I forgot about the in-laws... I do need to clean this week)
Friday - clean bathrooms, change linens
