I think once a week is my sweet spot. This is the third week in a row that I’ve actually looked forward to writing a blog post and even took the time to draw up an outline!
This week even has subheadings! Did you hear me? SUB.HEADINGS!
First things first, let’s get the bad news out of the weigh. (Like what I did there?)
This Week’s Weigh-In
While I know I didn’t do great this week, I certainly didn’t think I did bad enough for a pound and a half gain. I’m truly thankful that I’ve gotten back into the habit of notating everything I’m doing or else I would’ve been pretty upset. Now I can at least look back and see that, for the most part, I’m doing what I should be doing. This week I’m going to just accept that it happened and be happy that I’m still two pounds ahead of where I need to be to hit goal.
This Week’s Project
Most of our weeks have numerous projects, but I’m trying to narrow that down in order to preserve
my our sanity. This week our primary goals were to:
- Put together the spin bike
- Setup the music room
- Deep clean the bedroom
- Finish the gym
I am happy to report that we checked off every item on our list and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I LOVE our basement now.
Well, 75% of it, but that’s another project for another day.
I failed to get a picture of the music room mainly because there’s not much to see except for a bunch or wires and a drum set. Once our music posters and such are back on the wall I will be happy to share.
This Week’s Cuteness Overload
I got this:
Because this dude is obviously going to be a Super Hero.

Next Week’s Plan
My company moved into a new building and tomorrow is our first day. In case I haven’t mentioned it, there’s a VERY important amenity to this new building.
They have a gym.
A perfect gym.
A small, empty gym, with seemingly brand new equipment and a shower. That’s all I need. Cliff has a doctor’s appointment tomorrow so I won’t get to start my plan until Wednesday. Cliff will be joining the gym right across the street from his office and we’re going to start going during lunch.
I think this elliptical interval setup would be the perfect amount of time.
My goal is going to be five days a week and doubles on two of those days. The gym being in the building frees up a ton of time for us. We’re shooting for a schedule of 7-4, but ask me again at 5:30 tomorrow if we’re still doing it.
Guess who meal prepped, what what?! ( know, for a fact, that I’m not the only one that gets that pumped over meal prepping – don’t play).
I made pork carnita burrito bowls for lunch next week. Each bowl consists of homemade pork, one cup of brown rice, 1/4 cup chili beans, 1/4 cup Colby shred, and my copy-cat version of Qdoba’s corn salsa. Add about half of the mini guacamole bowls and you’ve got yourself a pretty good meal. I’m trying to eat more earlier in the day and less in the evening. This bowl rounds out to about 650 calories, which is almost exactly where I want my lunch to be. I want to consume about 1,000 of my 1,660 calories prior to dinner, so this will definitely help me reach that number.
This Week’s Completely Random Thing
Cliff and I are no longer on Facebook and I find myself at a complete lost as to what happened on which day. Instead of giving in and going back, I decided to start journaling again, only this time several times throughout the day. Initially I thought it would be far more time consuming for me to keep up; however, I’ve found that taking the time to jot down a few thoughts throughout the day is still MUCH less time than what I was spending on FaceBook.
I’ve really loved how its turned out so far. I took some of favorite pictures and quotes and turned them into stickers and covered the front pages.
Well, that’s all I have until next time. Stay tuned to see if I actually hit my first monthly goal of posting every week.
(Spoiler Alert – The reward I get is a new blog layout. I work so much better on a reward system).
