Extrememly internet/PC challenged lately
not entirely sure why yet
but very significantly worse than my normal awful.
Sorry but the last thing to be fixed will be my upload/download functionality which is almost totally broken again.
Rather than let team down, I'm doing a semi-cheat and essentially taling the 5 days of meals/snacks from my three 2/21/12 blogs and making them my meal plan this week.
There will be a couple relatively minor substitutions:
Almond Milk....... will be replaced all or partially with cows milk & rice milk
Black Bean/Corn Salsa .....will be replaced by cottage cheese and/or hummus
Oh yes, assume February was hot tea but LaborDay week will be ice tea.
and the only major substitution:
Leftover Goulash/Veggie soup .... will be replaced with steamed veggies (zucchini etal) over brown rice (with possibly a little leftover roast pork loin , if there is any left tomorrow which is highly doubtful)
Need pictures? see 2/21 blogs.... that shows you everything except the rice.
shopping list = pomegranate juice and more milk
I have everything else; just need to make some butterscothch pudding.
Other than the rice/veggie meal, that will be my only cooking for the next five days.
Hurrah! I can use the time to make a dent in that out-of-control to-do list !!!!
spend on the increased exercise from two other challenges this week, :) or :( ??
Exercise goals for this week ....well they are totally unrealistic.
Knowing that I won't be meeting them, I will totally NOT be stressed out or guilty for not meeting them. Rather, I'm using it as a fitness test just to see/measure how good/bad my fittness status currently is by seeing/tracking/journaling just how close, how much in some cases and how little in others, I come to achieving this week's heavy schedule.
My fitness challenge to myself will be .... to see how close to the hilltop I can get (without ignoring my body's warnings). I already know it won't be a failure as I've come a long way this year. I also don't anicipate a gold medal performance as I know I still have a ways to go. I plan to do some measurement though and gauge where in between I am and to identify key flaws so I can target them in plans created for the rest of the month. I also expect I will still be surprised by some of the successes, always a good thing. For fun/variety. I'll be doing a sampling of a good dozen evercise dvds I've never seen before. It should be an interesting & strange experience. That's one way to mix it up!!!
