The problem for me in the summer is that my kids are home all day and I’m an emotional eater. The problem now that school is in session is that they come home with homework and my youngest doesn’t like to just get it done so she can play without me nagging her. So you guessed it, emotional eating. I have been pretty good the past two weeks about not eating cake, cookies, candy etc. And yes, I am very proud of that fact. The goal of course is to continue to not eat the junk and replace it with healthy alternatives, food and non-food options.
My meal plans have been hindered by the fact that is just so hot that I haven’t wanted to cook. So I’m thinking of ways to cook without the oven (stove top, microwave, BBQ, NuWave).
Wed – Whole grain pasta – homemade sauce is already made
Thur – Pork ribs in the NuWave
Fri – Breakfast for dinner, probably pancakes/waffles and/or eggs
Sat – I believe I’m going out to dinner with friends
Sun – Son may be in a tournament late so will have to be something easy – salad or leftovers
Mon – Pork roast
Tues – Taco Salad
My exercise plan needs to take a step up. This week I will increase my strength training by adding in the Spark videos of the day.
Wed – Walk with the dogs – low key/rest day
Thur – walk, TT, and spark videos
Fri – walk (5k), spark videos and run on the treadmill
Sat – walk, spark videos and fitness tests
Sun – walk, spark videos
Mon – walk, spark videos, step ups
Tues – walk, run, spark videos
My goal this week is to increase my stamina and strength, eat healthy with no processed sugars, sleep at least 7 hours a night and drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water. This is usually not a problem since I only drink water and milk.
