Just so you know...

I've got some changes coming to normal run of the mill menu postings that I have been doing!

I am going to keep the "planned" menu as part of the blog but I am also going to start including a new menu shot each week. We can call that "What really happened." :)
You see, I can plan with the best of intentions but its a different story to carry out the food and exercise and that my friend is where the results come from: carrying our your plan!
This week I am keeping better record of what I eat, making changes to the menu plan, and will also include what exercise I followed through as well as what the calorie count was for each day(mostly :) )
If there is anything else that you want to see/know, let me know and I can try to get it on the blog!!!

As you all know, I love comments so write away!

Next weeks plan:

I've got a case of the Monday's....

And its already Tuesday!

I called out ill to work Monday (I was just lethargic and not @ 100% so best to rest and leave the next day for my best performance, riiiiiiiiiiiight?) After resting extra long with my puppy in bed, I managed to get myself to KOSAMA to rock the bags for kickboxing (LOVE IT) and kill it on the elliptical for an hour after that!

It definitely got the week started off right; both with eating and exercise, Monday set a good tone for the week. I have a pre-scheduled girl day/night out on Saturday so I KNOW I need to get as much face time with my sweat towel as possible to necessitate the over indulging that will be my entire day (whelp, not my breakfast :) )
Here is what has happened for me and what is to come:

Things to note:
  • Where are your salads?
  • Eat the same thing every day?
                    I set forth a new year challenge to eat a salad for 90 days, in which I failed. I made it through February 26th then I completely forgot. There were some days where I gave myself the benefit of the doubt on what constitutes a salad but never the less, that's a long time!
                    No, I try not to eat the same thing every day. I would like as much variety as the next guy but as of right now, I am doing a self challenge to buy as little groceries as possible. As a food hoarder bargain shopper, I have enough food to last a while so I want to clean cupboards from the near expiration dated food as well as make room for the ice that I bag in the summer to necessitate all the shastas we drink out of cooler. Nothing chaps my hide than paying for ice!

Short Blip of a Menu

HI readers! I just wanted to post a quick menu that I have had and will have the rest of this week! I was in Chiago, had a day off work BUT I set a goal of at least doing my menu's each week so here goes:

As you can also tell that I am seem to have a VERY different workout plan this week fro a week ago. I am easing myself back into it and will get back on the downward slide again next week. All about moderation and what feels good for ME!

I will come back Sunday with next weeks menu and some pictures from a fun filled weekend in Chicago!
