Even though I didn't stick to last weeks plan exactly, I liked having it written out here and sort of planned out in my head so I know what to do eating/workout wise. If it's in writing in a blog, I'm more apt to stick to it.
Monday - Breakfast - Yogurt, hard boiled egg
Lunch - Caesar Salad from Meijer
Snack before gym - 5 almonds
Snack after gym - Spinach and pineapple smoothie
Dinner- home made hamburger, green beans, baked potato
Workout - Gym - Treadmill 30 min, intervals of walking/jogging, lower body 30 minutes.
Tuesday - Breakfast - yogurt
Lunch - ham and cheese omelet, 1/2 hashbrowns, no toast
Dinner - Possibly out with friend - If at home - chicken noodle soup
Workout - Gym - Elliptical 20 minutes, back and biceps 30 minutes
Wednesday - Breakfast - yogurt, 5 almonds
Lunch - 2 hard boiled eggs on whole wheat sandwich thin, red grapes
Dinner - ham sandwich on whole wheat with mustard, carrots and green beans
Workout - Walk at home weather permitting, chest/shoulder/abs at home
Thursday - Breakfast - yogurt, 5 almonds
Lunch - same as Wednesday
Snack -Blueberry and strawberry smoothie
Dinner - Out to eat - Grilled chicken sandwich, 1 light beer
Rest day - Focus on house/yard work
Friday - Breakfast - yogurt, almonds
Lunch - Same as Wednesday and Thursday
Dinner - Not sure yet, must consult fiance
Workout - Gym - Treadmill 30 minutes, leg day again
My main goal right now is to not focus on the scale. I've been a lot better not getting on the scale. I want to just focus on toning up a bit. My wedding dress is getting hemmed right now and fits everywhere else for the most part. If I drop 5-7 pounds by the wedding I'd be ecstatic but I don't want to kill myself trying to lose 20 pounds and then have my dress be too big. Plus i don't want that stress.

I'm making a one week plan. I'm hoping if I make one week plans every week they will be easier to stick to.
Here's my plan:
Monday - Breakfast - hard boiled egg
Lunch - ceasar salad
Snack - Red seedless grapes, carrots
Dinner - Ham and cheese sandwich, baked potato, green beans
Workout - A ton of housework with some dancing in between, some home
chest/shoulder exercises and maybe a 1 mile walk with fiance.
Tuesday - Breakfast - Yogurt
Lunch - half of omelet, no toast, half hashbrowns
Snack - Pineapple and spinach smoothie
Dinner - Home made hamburger, green beans, baked potato
Workout- GO TO THE GYM FINALLY. 20 min cardio, 30 minute weights (back/bicep)
Wednesday - Breakfast - yogurt
Lunch - 2 Hard boiled eggs on whole wheat sandwich thin, strawberries, carrots
Dinner - Cheat day (Culver's for dinner)
Workout - Gym again hopefully. 20 min cardio 30 min weights (LEG DAY)
Thursday - Breakfast - yogurt
Lunch - 2 hard boiled eggs on whole wheat sandwich thin grapes, carrots
Dinner - Meet up with out of town friends - Grilled chicken sandwich at restaurant,
no fries. 1 light beer
Workout - 30 Day Shred at home or 2 mile walk outside weather permitting
Friday - Breakfast - yogurt and hard boiled egg
Lunch - ham and cheese on whole wheat sandwich thin, strawberries, blueberriees
Dinner - Attending a wedding so no idea what food is being served.
Workout - Rest Day bc of wedding.
Saturday - Breakfast - 2 scrambled eggs, one blueberry pancake.
No idea about the rest of food for that day.
Gym if possible.
I probably should space out the gym more but with stuff going on after work at the end of the week it's harder to do that. Hopefully I can stick to this plan!

I may have a big decision to make soon. I am going on a job interview after work today. I'm more nervous about the possibility of leaving my current job than the actual interview itself. Here's a little background why.
My current job I've been at for 13 years. I've moved up in the company quite a bit but am at a level where there isn't much more growth. My duties include: receptionist, payroll, HR, customer service, a little accounting, a little shipping, a little production assembly if we have a hot job and are short handed and I can spare time. Overall a jack of all trades. My actual job title is Human Resource Manager. I HATE that aspect of the job. I suck at interviewing potential employees. It's for no-experience, no degree, barely above minimum wage position. Not a lot to ask and at that point I just want to give everyone a shot. I get by and find usually decent people. However, we've had a major problem with turnover in one department due to a horrible plant manager that I can't do anything about. The headaches from that department have been enough to drive me to bad habits some days after work (food or alcohol).
We've also been told that we're losing our biggest customer and we will do layoffs and paycuts but anyone who is left with the paycut will have to take on more. So more work, less pay. I'm all ready do a TON of other peoples jobs.
So those are all the reasons why I want to leave.
However, there are some plus sides to working here. Job security. For the most part, as long as the company is open for business and the guy who owns it doesn't sell, I'll most likely never get laid off or fired. I have insurance through here (health, dental, vision, disability, life). I have 4 weeks paid vacation because I've been here for so long. I can pretty much set my own hours. I work 6:30am-3pm. I do go to bed early to get up early but I LOVE having my afternoons free. I have 2 hours after work before my fiance comes up to get house work done, a workout in, start dinner, or whatever. It's nice to have some "me" time. I also go to therapy every other week and I leave work for two hours and then return.
I don't know a lot about the new position. I will learn more this afternoon. It's doing payroll using the some program I currently use which is good. It's for a nursing home which is more stable than manufacturing. I believe it pays more than I currently make and will definitely be more once my pay is cut in September if I stay here.
I LOVE some of the people I work with at my current job. What if I don't like the people at my new job? What if I suck at it and get fired? I'm not sure if I could come back to the job that I may leave.
I probably shouldn't worry until I actually go on the interview but it's a lot to decide and think about.
