Well last week was a complete bust in the exercise department. In fact I didn't workout at all. That is the main problem with the after dinner exercise time slot... it is also the family time slot and if there are things going on I have to sacrifice my workout. Then on the weekend I was just so freaking tired from Baby's nocturnal shenanigans that I actually thought it would be dangerous to get on a treadmill... I'm serious. Shockingly, despite eating half of the notorious red velvet cake, my weight didn't go up this week... stress helps in that department I'm thinking.
Baby is now officially sick and now that her symptoms have surfaced she is sleeping a bit better again. She is still running me ragged and making me want to turn to drink every night around 5 PM so I can make it to the home stretch... and believe me I would if it didn't mean that I'd be throwing my workout right out the window with it.
On a positive note Mr F and I had a "discussion"... different from an argument because during a discussion I talk and Mr F yeses me. Anyway it was regarding his half assed cleaning projects and how they effect my overall morale. Not well. Nothing like trying to keep things together (and really making tons of progress) but always having some pile of shit left out or things *put away* in a way that is not only not helpful but not where they belong to really throw a wrench into my daily efforts. Mr F actually felt bad and has been trying to make an effort to take things *all the way*... but I know it is a serious challenge for him to make it to 100%. He seriously has a brain issue that makes him naturally want to stop a project at about 80% complete. I know many of you know exactly what I'm talking about. Somedays I can look past it and somedays it makes me homicidal. What can I say?

Diet & Exercise:
Okay last week was a wipe out. This week I'm just going to be diligent. We don't have any events or evening plans and I should be able to stick to my program. My plan is to eat 1700 calories a day (kind of wish I thought of that before I was half way through today... oops). Seeing as I haven't lost any weight obviously 1800 is too much for me right now. As far as exercise goes I'm going to do 6 hours of cardio. I'm planning on working out Monday, Tuesday, Thursday evenings for 80 minutes and on Saturday & Sunday afternoons for 60 minutes.
Monday - grocery shopping
Tuesday - laundry, vacuum
Wednesday - clean off fucking desk for once... not just "file" everything in the back of my drawer!
Thursday - take down Halloween decorations
Kid's Lunches & Snacks:
Monday - pasta w/ shrimp & green beans, milk, yogurt, hard boiled egg and kiwi
Tuesday - avocado sandwich, milk, yogurt, smoked salmon and kiwi
