Week in Review and Upcoming Menu

So this week I was dreading since we missed an entire week due to the snow BUT it wasn't bad.

Until Wednesday when around 4pm my eyes started watering. And my sinuses were ON FIRE. By 8pm I was in bed nursing probably one of the worst head colds I have had all season. I spent all day Thursday in bed blowing my nose and hydrating. Then spent all weekend doing pretty much the same thing. I felt a tad better Friday but was worse on Saturday and by Sunday I was feeling a LOT better. My nose is still stuffed up but nothing like it was. Thank goodness.

Last week I have:

Monday: (walk/run) 25:54 time, 1.31 miles, 3.05MPH, 19.:39 pace
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: 1.13 miles (not sure on anything else because I didn't jot this down before I deleted the text to Other Chef)
Thursday: Rest
Friday: (walk/run) 25:03 time, 1.27 miles, 3.05MPH, 19:39pace

So a total of 3.71 miles. Bleh. This week, and pretty much every week, we are going to be hitting the gym 5 days a week. Today went okay. I can tell I will feel soreness but meh. It felt good :D 

Jenn at Running with the Girls told me that I always have good recipes and I needed to post them more so I am going to get back into cooking full force (let's see how long that lasts). This weeks menu (for dinners) is:

Tuesday: Ranch Style Chicken and twice baked potatoes 
Wednesday: Sloppy Joes (homemade from PW) and fries (yes not the healthiest but I have two boys to feed who have been asking for this!)
Thursday: Ham, Potato and Cheese Soup
Friday: Leftovers
Saturday: Chicken Tacos (crockpot, a recipe from Pinterest)
Sunday: Chicken Enchilada Casserole
Monday: Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole
Tuesday: Leftovers

I know that seems like crazy, unhealthy stuff but honestly, its moderate (except for those sloppy joes of course LOL). I offset the sometimes unhealthy dinners with healthy eating the rest of the day. Pretty excited, I have kept right at my daily calorie count the last couple weeks :D Go me!

Is anyone else as excited for the Handful giveaway as I am? I can't wait!

Sounds like you are on the mend! Thank you for sharing your menu with me. I was feeling unmotivated with dinner this week and you gave me some ideas!!!

I have been forcing myself to make a menu every week. If not then I am completely unmotivated all the time for meals! I even plan my breakfasts and lunches!

I try to do a weekly menu too! I think it helps to already have it planned out so I don't get lazy and do something quick and easy :)

Great job getting some exercise in three days this past week. I only ran one day :( so I need to follow your example and do better!
