Sunday Meal Plan – Week 17

Here’s to another lovely Sunday Meal Plan!

It has been another great Sunday in Western New York, the sun has been shining, the breeze lightly blowing and the birds tweeting. I couldn’t ask for much more in the weather department.

So what did we do this weekend?

Not all that much, but we did do some serious lazing around. 🙂 Yesterday I finally went and got a hair cut, it’s been since before Thanksgiving, and I was in desperate need. I don’t know if anyone else has as good of a relationship with their hair dresser as I do, but I really enjoy seeing her and catching up. I see Alli at Chez Ann Salon, in case anyone is in need of a stylist. 🙂

In the afternoon we ran a couple errands and then headed out to a playground for some good ole fashion fun. I got this lovely picture…


It was just such a gorgeous evening!

And today, Sunday, started out rough. Emmett woke up around 1:30 and I wasn’t able to crawl back into my own bed until around 5:30 am. It’s been so bad lately, he’s woken up every single night since last Thursday. I know everyone says that it will all eventually pass, and that I’ll look back on this time fondly, but I have to be honest, I’m tired… How do I get him to sleep through the night again (help!)?

Once we were all up again, we went grocery shopping, got coffee, had lunch, took naps and then went out for a nice long walk. It was a beautiful night once again. I just love this weather! The time between it being cold and super hot, I just wish it lasted longer in Western NY. 🙂

And now, my Sunday meal plan.

Sunday: Pork with homemade tomatillo salsa

Monday: Grilled Chicken and Zucchini

Tuesday: Salmon with Israeli Couscous, with Peppers and Pistachios (this is a recipe I got off of one of my Paleo eMeals menu – it’s so good!)

Wednesday: Mexican Pizzas

Thursday: Hot Dogs and Fries

Friday: Meatloaf (following my recipe, find it here) and Baked Potatoes

Saturday: Seamus’ Birthday Dinner!!! I’m not sure where he wants to go yet, but I’m excited to celebrate with him.

That’s about it for food this week, once again, I’m pretty excited about our menu! I’m linking up with Laura from Mommy, Run Fast! and Jill from jillconyers.com Check them out and link-up!

What fun meals do you have planned for this week?


Friday Fitness

Results for 10/5/12 – 10/11/12

Amount Lost:

Nothing. I gained 3.4. Ugh!

I truly ate better this week and still somehow managed to gain.

Amount Remaining to Lose:


Food Goals:

  • Eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at home, except for 1 dinner and 1 lunch

I ate pizza last Friday and then had pizza Sunday for dinner. So while it was two dinners, I did pretty well food wise.

  • Get in those vegetables!

Complete! I’ve been making a very mindful effort to start eating more veggies. I had a ton of carrots and beans this week.

  • Snack on fruits/vegetables, not crackers and chips

Not so great. I ate more veggies but still managed to eat plenty of crackers.

Fitness Goals:

  • Get to the gym at least 3 times

Didn’t meet this one and am disappointed with myself.

  • Walk with Emmet at least twice

Also did not complete this one.

  • Work on creating some sort of workout schedule. Even if it has holes and is just a loose idea of what I want, I need something.

This was the simplest of the 3 and I still didn’t do anything with it.

I am so terribly disappointed in myself. I wasn’t even going to post a “Friday Fitness” this week since I was upset about my weigh-in but I need to hold myself accountable. If I don’t want to report out failure then I need to work at success. There is never a reason for me to not eat well and I can’t even think of a valid excuse for not exercising at least 3 times.

My Happy Meathead!!

Goals for 10/12/12-10/18/12

Food Goals:

  • Begin working on eating cleaner. More veggies, more fruit and more whole foods.
  • Find one new healthy recipe for Seamus and I to cook and make it
  • Eat slightly smaller portions of the foods I’m currently eating

Fitness Goals:

  • 3 workouts: walking, swimming, running, strength training – just move AT LEAST 3 times
  • Create that workout schedule for a month out.
  • Get back into practicing yoga – it is empowering and relaxing all at once

Here’s to a fantastic week ahead!
