Let's start with the fact that it is my husband's and my 18th anniversary. Which is, of course, a ridiculously long time, no matter how you slice it, but to quote Cam from Modern Family, "we have fun." We had a good portion of he weekend to ourselves, which rarely happens, and was doubly enjoyed since we know next Saturday night we will have several giggly preteen females in the house, so, there we go. Several people asked what our plans were. They don't understand how we treasure this time at home alone - we do not go out, we do not see other people if at all possible. We stay home, eat something delicious, and watch whatever the heck we want. That usually means some form of sporting event for him, while I read. We did watch the new Doctor Who. Is anyone else totally over Clara and Mr. Pink? Ditch the romantic crap and get back to the adventures. Kind of digging this dark new Doctor, and last night's twist...gasp! No Spoilers, I promise. Anyway, today is the actual anniversary, and while I was taking the Girl to volleyball, the husband made good chicken parmesan and apparently bought me a laptop! On which I am typing this, right now! Yay! I have been using a Dell from 2002, so you can see why I am excited.
Inspired by Organize Yourself Skinny, to which I have referred in the past, I would like to start posting my healthy plans each week. This doesn't mean I will do away with my completely meaningless babble, oh good heavens, no! Simply, that I will have opportunity for more, plus, maybe I will feel a bit more compelled to stay on track if I post about it. Melody, from the famed boot camp, often says "your failure to plan is not my problem." And that cracks me up, and speaks to me, as I find I am so much more on top of things if I plan, and prepare. Not rocket science, I know, shush. But I need more than the usual dose of motivation, and this may just help. So here is something fun:
I did this today - made the menu plan, chopped many veggies, made up mason jar salads (love!), prepared snacks, got some stuff together for smoothies and for dinners (there is not really as much dressing as it looks like there is in the salad on the left, just tilted some.) Also did a buttload of laundry, but that is not part of this. Went through the boot camp schedule and figured out my exercise for the week. I'm ready to kick butt and take names, and it couldn't come sooner, I'll tell you, because this past week I have been one lazy Missy.
What prompted this hysterical rush of healthy prep work, you ask? Scary story:
Last night, I dreamed I went back to school. I had several papers to write, and I had no freaking clue how to do the math I apparently learned last year. So I had to reteach myself the math from last year, study for tests, and write papers, and then I realized I hadn't been in to work in several days, and they really wanted me to be there. Plus, my kids had school work and several of their assignments required me to take them to Indiana. I was extremely stressed out. In my freaking sleep, I was stressed out. I woke up very angry - if I can't relax in my sleep, where can I relax, for crying out loud! I realized, I filled in my November calendar last night before going to bed, and the Girl recently made a select volleyball team, which is going to require more driving around, and if we are not going to live off fast food (and I haven't had fast food in awhile,) I'd better start preparing things ahead of time.
Since I've babbled on for a while tonight, I'm not going to give you the nitty gritty of the week's plans, maybe next week. I do plan on 5AM boot camp, 5 days this week, plus a definite 8:30 yoga class on Saturday. I'm feeling pretty good and on top of things for this week.
Ooh, also, have you checked out the Dia De Los Muertos Google banner today? Very cool.
|I think this is done by MisNopalesArt on Etsy- she does a lot of this very cool stuff. Google didn't tell me for sure.|
Doesn't the stormtrooper helmet lend itself well to the Calaveras treatment?
