This Week The Plan

Last week was busy. We cleaned the house for company... including finally getting all my paperwork filed! It feels so great to have finally gotten our paperwork cleared out and to be able to process our mail immediately.
We also sold our Volvo. Thank you to everyone who encouraged us to do that. While there are some glitches as we wait until we replace it... we were able to pay off all our outstanding medical bills & our appliances. We also got the van new tires. That was over $4000 that had been hanging over our heads for MONTHS. It is a huge relief to be able to move forward debt free. Mr F has a 2K (maximum) budget to pick out the junker of his dreams. The remainder I'm setting aside in a car maintenance fund.

This week should be a nice basic week. Nothing unusual. That's pretty rare and I plan to enjoy it.

P.S. Do you all know about archive.org? I'm obsessed with this site. I'm sure it won't surprise you that I'm reading a vintage junior's home economics book.

Alright this week...

Menu:

Sunday - Crockpot Brisket w/ carrots & potatoes, green peas

Monday - leftovers of the above

Tuesday - Quesadillas

Wednesday - Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon, green beans, sauteed potatoes & onions

Thursday - Scallion & Ginger Shrimp w/ Noodles

Friday - Pizza, Salad & Carrot Sticks

Saturday - Mexican Fritatta

Sunday - Salmon Noodle Casserole



Diet & Exercise:
I'm hoping to have some renewed efforts this week. I was really exhausted last week after having been so sick the week before and ended up bailing on my plans until I had more energy. So this week it is game on. I'm back to food journaling and working out. Last week the orthopedic surgeon said I'm all clear to workout as I see fit.

I've been working out an hour every day (I skipped 1 Sunday, but made it up during the week), and have gotten down to within 10 pounds of my goal weight. Yay, me!

Plus, I turned in a book review that isn't even due until the first week in April. It is funny how being organized and focused in one area of life can spill over into unrelated areas.

Thanks for the motivation--you rock!

PS--I am trying to spend less $$ on food, so thanks for the tips there, too.

Oh how I love "The Plan"!! I feel more organized just reading yours!! I am hoping that now that the weathers getting nice we will all be outside more and therefore the house will (somehow) stay clean(let me dream here...). Of course, reality dictates that now both outside AND inside will be messy...but we shall save reality for another day!

Oh-and on your tea--Kid is looking so GROWN! I didn't even recognize her at first! Mr. F better start bulking up now..the dating years are going to be fierce! I wish there was someplace around here like that to take my older 2..they would love it!

Agreed-- I get a little energized reading your weekly plans!

The Other Susan,
Isn't it true how everything snowballs?! You'd think you could focus on one area and that is just not what happens (for me)... either everything is working or nothing is.
I'm glad in your in an upswing!


Marie,
"Oh-and on your tea--Kid is looking so GROWN! I didn't even recognize her at first! "
It could be the lack of glasses. She decided for a fancy even she wasn't going to wear them. I decided not to make an issue of it. Her eyes hurt her and she couldn't see the cows in the distance... I think she learned her lesson ;)


Heather,
I still resist doing it but in the end it makes a huge difference in the flow of my week.
