Last week was really a great week. I managed to drop 2 pounds while still enjoying myself (within reason on the weekend). I got in 4 hours of cardio and am finally back to doing more intense hill intervals... so I'm hoping to see some more fat % drop in addition to the weight loss. We also made some MAJOR progress around the house and things are finally over the hump and moving into place. I think that in another 2 weekends we'll have gotten everything into place and all misc stuff stashed where it belongs. I also made several new recipes that worked out to be pretty easy & delicious (go Paula!) and I will definitely be bringing into rotation...so I'll hook you up with those recipes...
Bobby's Goulash from Paula Dean (so freaking good and it makes about 12 servings so you can freeze half)
Shrimp Creole from Paula Dean (I only used 1/2 T hot sauce)
One Hour Dinner Rolls (I added dried dill to the dough... almost no kneading very easy to make)
Okay this week my plan is just to keep on keepin' on. Last week was really a very successful week so I'm hoping I can keep up the forward motion!
Monday - Cornflake Crusted Tilapia & steamed broccoli
Tuesday - Leftover Goulash & green beans (and I'm getting my haircut & having dinner w/ the stylist!)
Wednesday - Brown Sugar & Ginger Salmon, Chinese Veggie Stirfry, sesame ginger rice (Near East mix)
Thursday - Shrimp Fajitas w/ Guacamole and fresh corn tortillas (some gas station sells 'em)
Friday - Pizza night
Saturday - Roasted Chicken w/ twice baked potatoes & maple roasted butternut squash, Snickerdoodle Pie (Oh I'm looking forward to making this!)
Sunday - Tomato & Meatball Soup w/ dill rolls
Kid's got Thursday & Friday off so...
Monday - veggie sandwich (tomato, avocado & mayo), 2 oz smoked salmon, grapes, milk
Tuesday - avocado sushi roll (I buy the sushi people!), hard boiled egg, apple cinnamon & zucchini muffin, milk
Wednesday - pb & j, melon, sliced tomatoes, yogurt, milk
(so glad I only had to think of 3)
Diet & Exercise:
Last week was a success so I'm just going to repeat my goals. I'm going to stick under 1550 during the week and 60 min cardio on Mon-Thurs. I'm going to be a little more flexible with my calories on the weekends and hopefully fit in one long workout on the Saturday. If all goes well I'll be back to a maintenance plan by next week!
Errands, Chores, aka Misc Annoyance:
Monday - meal plan, groceries, put away clothes
Tuesday - clean off desk (MUST HAPPEN), work on organizing deck
Wednesday - laundry, vacuum, clean bathroom
Thursday - school conferences, playdate
that's all I've got so far...
The weekend recap:
Apparently Mr F really needs you to see his closet organization system (all my idea thank you very much... I'd really like to see him actually use it!)
