1. Finish phase 4 of the female body breakthrough and meet with Dave before the end of the month to discuss a muscle building plan.
2. Maintain in the 120-124 range (no change). I joined the Springiest Maintainers challenge and my allowed range is slightly wider than this (122 plus or minus 3%).
3. Add muscle. Don't add fat. (I don't have the numbers right in front of me but I do have numbers for each.)
4. Get each kid to prepare at least one healthy dish.
5. Finish at least one scrapbook layout.
6. Go OUT on a date with DH.

I could NOT resist the sales this week.
Monday I bought a size 4P royal blue duchesse satin sheath cocktail dress on clearance at Talbots. Can't go smaller through the shoulders but I may have the waist taken in a bit closer to our July cruise. I also got a pair of desperately needed size 2P black dress pants.
During the week my Frederick's order arrived. Size small night gowns to replace the much too large size large ones. Super duper discounted!
Sunday DD and I hit Sports Authority. She got running shoes (which she is nuts about), a pair of lounge pants, and an awesome Adidas top marked down from $50 to $20. I got fabulous bright cerulean blue satiny cross training shoes, a coordinating top, a red sox t (April will be here soon), and a Patriots t to wear next weekend.
I also hit up the dress sale at JCpenney and bought 3 size 4 cocktail dresses for $46 total - a black one, a grey one, and a green one. If they all fit, I'll be very well dressed on the cruise! I'm still on the hunt for a great deal on a red dress. Best thing about all the dresses is that I will be able to wear a regular bra (not strapless or convertible) with all the dresses.
I better maintain through February because I already spent my February money!

After a 5 day hiatus: sick kid, sick kid, snow storm, crazy day, out of town appointment... I was back at the gym today. Did the A3 workout of the final phase of The Female Body Breakthrough. There are 12 workouts and that is workout 5. It is taking me a LOT longer to get through this phase. When I set my plan DD did not have so many out of town appointments and I didn't expect me OR her to get sick. Gotta roll with it. Getting back to the gym today is NOT the kind of thing the 'old' me would have done to help cope with all this stress. Ooooh, noooo. She would have cracked open a bottle of wine or eaten a whole pizza or a bag of reeses or something. (The new me really ought to force herself to workout at home when she can't get to the gym. I need to come up with some ideas though because I don't want to do ST the day before or after a gym ST day and I'm not going to walk on my treadmill in a winter-cold basement. Maybe a yoga or pilates DVD.)
The workout was awesome. This phase is built of low, medium, and high rep sets. Each has it's benefits and I like the challenge of choosing the weight that is best for each number of reps. I finished up in an hour and burned 500 calories. Great burn for such a short time in the gym doing something I love!
I got almost 200g of protein in today. Wow! There's no way I can eat my entire calorie budget AND 500 exercise calories but I'm sure not hungry... probably because of all that protein!
