Weekly Food & Fitness Plan #55

Hey friends!! I hope you're all having a great Sunday and weekend. I'm posting this a bit later because we had little to no service where we were camping this weekend. But it's better late than never, right? 

Life has been pretty busy and quite honestly, pretty overwhelming for me the last few weeks. So overwhelming, in fact, that I decided to deactivate my Facebook account. I realized that I was wasting way too much time on there and the majority of the things people were posting were negative and were making me behative as well. Life has enough negativity in it already, I didn't need any extra when I'm trying to live a positive life. I'll probably create a new account at some point in the future and re-connect with those that mean the most to me and are a positive influence on my life. So, long story short, if you've been looking for me on Facebook, that's why you haven't been able to find me.

Now that that's out of the way, let's see what is planned for the week:


Food:
Sunday - Dinner at my sister's house for her Birthday
Monday - Leftovers
Tuesday - 7-Up Grilled Chicken
Wednesday - Grilled Kielbasa Sandwiches
Thursday - Chicken Parmesan
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Grilled Hamburgers

Fitness;
Sunday - Yoga Meltdown
Monday - Ripped in 30
Tuesday - Ripped in 30
Wednesday - Yoga Meltdown
Thursday - Ripped in 30
Friday - Ripped in 30
Saturday - Run or Dye 5k!!

I'm pretty excited about the Run or Dye race next weekend. I have to get a white BAMR band before then! Have a great weekend everyone!

So long for today...

Weekly Food & Fitness Plan #54

Good morning friends! I hope you're all having a great weekend. Ours has been pretty relaxed, which is just what I needed this week. Things are really ramping up for me with my United Way work. I'm really loving it, but everyday is a contant on-the-go day for me. So it was really nice to have a relaxing weekend. We are still packing and doing little things around the house, but staying pretty close to home.

We are camping next weekend and doing our annual float down the Edisto. They are calling for some cooler weather. Cooler being a relative term in the low country, but it will definitely make for a nicer camping trip. I will be spending the last part of this week packing and getting ready for the weekend, which will add to the chaos, but YOLO, right?!

Here's what I have planned:


Food:
Sunday - Leftovers
Monday - Crockpot Santa Fe Chicken
Tuesday - Past & Turkey Meat Sauce
Wednesday - Grilled 7Up Chicken
Thursday - Breakfast for Dinner
Friday - Camping - Grilled Pork Chops
Saturday - Camping - Hot Dogs!!!

Fitness:
Sunday - Yoga Meltdown
Monday - Ripped in 30
Tuesday - Ripped in 30
Wednesday - Ripped in 30
Thursday - Yoga Meltdown
Friday - Rest
Saturday - 3 mile run

I hope you all have a great Sunday and a wonderful week!

So long for today...

Weekly Food & Fitness Plan #53

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you're all having a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Ours has been very nice. It started off on a sad note with a funeral, but has improved so much since then. Yesterday was the first day in a very long time that we spent the entire day at home. We actually worked on cleaning, decluttering and packing the house. The past 2 weeks have been such a whirlwind for us, it was nice to have a day at home. We are doing some impromptu camping tonight on the lake. We got a last minute notification that there was a showing scheduled for our house, so we kicked it into high gear and got it ready. We have another one scheduled for tomorrow afternoon, so we decided to stay out here for the evening to keep the house from getting messed up again. Or to put it better, to keep hurricane Camden from tearing the place apart! Lol!

I have failed miserably at my fitness the last couple of weeks. I'm hoping to get back to it now that I am a week I to my United Way work. We will see though. Here is what I have planned for the week:


Sunday - Grilled Kielbasa Sandwiches
Monday - Labor Day Picnic!!
Tuesday - Crockpot Meatloaf
Wednesday - Crockpot Turkey Chili
Thursday - Grilled Turkey Patties
Friday - Grilled Turkey Brats
Saturday - Grilled Hamburgers

Fitness plan:
Sunday - 3 mile run
Monday - 3 mile run
Tuesday - Ripped in 30
Wednesday - Ripped in 30
Thursday - Yoga Meltdown
Friday - Ripped in 30
Saturday - 3 mile run

I hope you all have a safe and Happy Labor Day weekend!

So long for today...

Weekly Food & Fitness Plan #52

Happy Sunday or maybe Monday depending on when you're reading this. This past week has been such a whirlwind for me and I feel like I'm just now getting my feet planted again.

Camden was sick on Monday and stayed at home with my MIL all day. Tuesday, his fever was gone and he was in better spirits, so we sent him to daycare. Three hours later, they called and said they thought he had hand, mouth and foot. Unfortunately, they were correct. So Camden was out of school for the rest of the week. Even more unfortunate was the fact that my MIL wasn't available to watch him and my mom was still in PA, so TC and I swapped out taking days off from work. It's my last week in the office for 10 weeks due to some work I'll be doing for our local United Way, so I was a busy little bee the time that I WAS in the office trying to tie up loose ends.

Thankfully, my parents got back into town this week and will be helping us out since I will be working later than normal and will need them to pick up the kids from daycare. On top of everything else, Addison had her first day of Kindergarten last Tuesday. She did great! And so did I! I didn't even cry!! It's such a huge relief that she had a great first week of school and really like her teachers!

Ok, so now that I've explained all that, let's move on to this week's plan:



FOOD:
Sunday - Grilled Rotisserie Chicken
Monday - Grilled Hamburgers
Tuesday - Grilled Turkey Brats
Wednesday - Grilled Honey Lime Chicken
Thursday - Chicken and Biscuits Casserole
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Grilled Steaks

FITNESS:
Sunday - Rest
Monday - Ripped in 30
Tuesday - Ripped in 30
Wednesday - Yoga Meltdown
Thursday - Ripped in 30
Friday - Rest
Saturday - 3 mile run

Have a great week everyone!

So long for today...

Weekly Food & Fitness Plan #49

Happy, happy Sunday everyone! I hope you're all having a great weekend! Ours has been wonderful! I told you all last week that we were headed up to NC to go to Carrowinds. We all had so much fun! The campground was nice and convenient to the park, so we headed back there for dinner and so Camden could take a much needed nap. We ended the day with the last fireworks display of the season for the park, so we had an extra long and spectacular show.  

My eating was pretty off the last couple of days, but I'm planning to reign it back in today.  I'm thinking about giving Simply filling another try now that I have done some research and talked to a couple of other people that have done it. I think I understand it better and might have more success with it. I will let you know what I decide. Here is this week's plan:



FOOD:
Sunday - French Dip Cupcakes
Monday - Crockpot Beef Roast
Tuesday - Turkey Chili
Wednesday - Crockpot Pork Roast
Thursday - Pasta w/ Turkey Meat Sauce
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Grilled Hamburgers

FITNESS:
Sunday - 3 mile walk/run
Monday - Ripped in 30
Tuesday - Ripped in 30
Wednesday - Yoga Meltdown
Thursday - Ripped in 30
Friday - 3 mile run
Saturday - 3 mile run

I'm thinking about changing up my workouts, but I'm not sure how. I will have to think about it a little bit more. I am very excited that I got over 28,000 steps in yesterday! Helps to make up for Friday when I didn't reach my 10,000 a day goal.

Have a great week everyone!

So long for today.

WW Peach Delight Dessert


Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week...almost at least. I hope you've all had a great week. We've been busy as usual. I feel like I say that in every post these days. We had a realtor come to look at the house yesterday, so I spent a lot of time making sure everything looked its best. This is hard when you have two kids with the superpower of being able to destroy a clean room in 2.2 minutes. I told TC that maybe we should just move into the camper...in the driveway...until we sell the house. His look told me that maybe that's a crazy idea. Lol!


We are headed up to North Carolina this evening for the weekend. We're going to an amusement park tomorrow. How cool is it that they have a campground on-site and the shuttle you back and forth to the park. It's so convenient when you have two kids, one of which still needs one (or two) naps a day. Addison is really looking forward to going. Especially for riding the roller coasters. I can't wait, too!

A couple of weeks ago, I made this dessert. A friend of mine had told me about it and it sounded good. I used peaches, but you could use strawberries, too if you wanted to. The peaches that I used were frozen and were spectacular though. So the next time, I'm going to be sure to use fresh ones and I think it will make all the difference. Everyone loved this dessert, especially Addison. For a picky eater to like something so much, I will definitely consider that a win! Here's the recipe:


WW PEACH DELIGHT DESSERT
Source: Darlene M.
Servings: 12
Points+: 1

4 cups peaches
1 pkg. sugar free Cook & Serve vanilla pudding
1 pkg. sugar free peach Jell-o
2 c. water
1 container fat free Cool Whip

Spread peaches in a 9" x 13" baking dish and set aside. Combine pudding and water in medium sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and allow to boil until thick. Add Jell-o and stir until all ingredients have dissolved and are mixed well. Place mixture in refrigerator until cool. Once cool, pour over peaches in baking dish. Spread Cool Whip over top of peaches and Jell-o. I also crushed up a couple of reduced fat vanilla wafers, but that is optional. Place in refrigerator until set. Enjoy!


This dessert is realy easy to make. It comes together pretty quickly, too.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

So long for today...
