I got almost all the small stuff moved into my new apartment over my week off. Unfortunately, I was pretty much on my own to do it all since my boyfriend was at work, one of my good friends was babysitting, my other good friend was sick, and my family was busy with wedding planning details for my sisters. But if you're looking for a silver lining (and I always try to find one if possible), it was good because I got to get in a little extra "workout". Although it's not the kind of workout I would even bother tracking here on Sparkpeople. Now I am left with extremely limited stuff at my current apartment. This is unfortunate because now I'm in a bit of a predicament food-wise... I don't want to go buy a whole bunch of food that I'll have to move at the end of the week, but I do want to be able to eat healthy. I have healthy things to cook already at home, but I don't have a lot of good stuff to bring to work. I think that for this week, and this week only, to simplify my moving process I am going to purchase some lean pockets or something similarly simple that I can leave at school and eat for lunch. I'll probably also buy exactly enough fruit to last the week, but I won't get much more.

In other news, I am planning a bridal shower for my sisters and I need to plan a good bridal shower menu. I want to do all little things that people can walk around with since seating will be limited. I was thinking little finger sandwiches, mini caprese salads on toothpicks and possibly fruit kabobs. Any other suggestions of moderately healthy but easy to eat when you're not sitting at a table foods?

    Congrats to your sisters! I'm a big fan of bruschetta (on zucchini slices, on bread, or on crackers), veggie and cream cheese roll-ups, and hummus with veggies. Those are my go-to finger food options.

    Moving is so hard, but well done! That extra bit of fitness will add up, and even if you don't track it it's still time NOT spent sitting on the couch!

    Glad you found new apartment! Sounds like you are planning as you go. Roll with simplicity sounds like good idea as this is crazy busy time for you. Hope you can sneak in some exercise..loud music and dancing while you pack? emoticon

    I think your plan to do the pre-portioned meals for lunch is a good idea. They may not be the healthiest, but they aren't bad for you, are easy to track and it is much better than running to McDonalds for lunch.
    For the bridal shower, you could do a pasta salad with italian dressing and fill it with veggies (cucumber, onion, tomatoes, olives and feta etc). You could also do grilled chicken on a stick with a dipping sauce (my cousin had it at her baby shower and everyone loved it. It was served with a spicy asian peanut sauce).
