Last week was great. We had a really good time and maxed out our route to visit with as many people as possible. More on the trip (cause I know you're all riveted ;) later... for now I'm focusing on getting back on track.
#1 We left the house in a pretty clean state... but... you'd never know it now. It is like the car contents (and we were packed to the gills) has exploded all over the floor. It's a bit overwhelming... and somewhat dangerous.
#2 I am getting back on track with the weight loss/fitness goals. And yes after the trip I have weight loss goals. It's ridiculous that I gained that much. But it really was the push I needed to get back to 100% on doing what I need to do. It's funny how much easier it is for me to stay focused now that I have further to go.
Sunday - Tomato & Meatball Soup
Monday - Salmon Noodle Casserole (did I tell you I've changed this recipe to be organic... and it's better?), mixed veg
Tuesday - Fried rice w/ broccoli & seared tilapia
Wednesday - ? (still need to go to the store... I'll update tomorrow)
Friday - Pizza & Salad
Saturday - ?
For those of you that actually enjoyed this feature... I've stream lined our lunches and it is almost always leftover dinner, fruit, hard boiled egg or smoked salmon & milk. When we make dinner Baby usually eats a half portion and the other half is the perfect lunch portion for Kid. We have a small Thermos brand hot lunch carafe... we just heat it up and put it in and it's still hot at lunch. It's made lunch prep a lot faster. Yes it helps that Kid actually likes dinner food. ;)
P.S. Do you all give your kids 2% milk or do you think I should get skim or 1/2 % ? Mr F would have a cow if he came home to skim milk (bwahahaha).
Errands & Chores:
I really just need to PICK UP THE DAMN HOUSE... it's going to take all week.
Oh and the lawn looks like an undulating field... and so... maybe I'll try and mow it.
Diet & Exercise:
I am seriously sticking to actually weighing and measuring my portions. I'm shooting for around 1650 calories. AND working out for 60 minutes EVERY SINGLE DAY this week. AND I'm walking to get Kid from school and to do our little errands.
Please let me know if you are in need of some extra positive thoughts, energy, prayers (or whatever you call it) this week.
