Weekly Menu


Weekly Menu Plan

Well, my six weeks are up.  This is the week that I go back to work.  Fortunately my recuperation went well I’m hopeful that I won’t be to exhausted when I get home from work!

To help ease myself into the transition I’ve made sure that the house is clean, laundry is done (thanks to Mike!) and that I have my clothes ready for the week.  I’ve also kept our menu this week fairly easy and have a box coming from Plated.com

Last week was pretty quiet with not a lot getting done around the house.  I did spend some time taking pictures and went out a few times with friends (my last hoorah!) but I was a bit disappointed that I didn’t get more done.  I’m going to blame my allergies (I had a headache all week), my finding a new author that I LOVE and my desire to take it easy knowing that I was going back to work for my inability to finish my storage room. Overall I did get a lot accomplished over my time off so I can’t complain to much.

This week is going to be pretty quiet.  Given that I’m expecting to be exhausted, I haven’t made any plans to go out this week.  I’ll be pretty pleased with myself if I can continue my No McDonald’s streak (8 weeks) and my No Caffeine or Sugared Beverages streak (6 weeks) as well as get out and walk a bit at lunch.  I’ve been doing really well with my water intact so I want to continue that as well.

I’ll be linking up at I’m an Organizing Junkie.

Do you want to try a week of Plated.com for free?  The box is 100% free but you will need to sign up with a credit card, just be sure to cancel or put on hold future boxes so that you don’t get charged for anything else unless you want to.  The only thing I ask is that if you ask for a free box you actually use it.  I’ve had a number of people request a box and not use the code which kind of irks me since that box can’t then be used by someone else.  Drop me a note here if you’d like a code sent to you.

  1. Wow! What a yummy looking menu!
    I am working toward reducing my coffee and sugar intake as well. We pretty much only drink water, but some days I get so distracted that I can not get it all in. I am hoping that with these 3 things plus making sure I get in at least 5,000 steps and yoga or an extra 1000 steps I can get to feeling better. Good luck!
    Stopping by from Orgjunkie!

    • Reducing sugar is hard! Isn’t it crazy how hard it is to get our steps in? I’ve been wearing my Fitbit again and it’s appalling sometimes how many steps I get in. Have a good week!

      • Oh my gosh, reducing sugar is hard! For me it only takes one M&M and I am back to square one! Yes, getting steps in is hard as well. Expecially when you work from home or are a stay-at-home mom. Yesterday I only got a little over 3,000! LOL! Not a good start to my May goals. I am vowing to do better today. 🙂
