    • Sunday – Greek chicken with homemade apple pie as dessert
    • Monday – Curry burgers
    • Tuesday – I’m too ashamed to log what I had for dinner.  We went to the Y for INSAN.ITY fit testing, which I thought would take 10-15 minutes.  The testing itself was quick, but then we were led through another 20 minutes of class, taking us to 6:50.  We then walked the track for 10 minutes and because we’re putting the kids to bed earlier these days, my hubs said, “DQ for dinner?”  And I agreed.  I had a kids cup of vanilla ice cream – and that was my dinner.  I put the frozen soup (homemade leftovers) back in the freezer for another time.
    • Wednesday – Curried pumpkin soup – This was excellent!  It needed a bit of something more in the way of spices, and we’re not sure what.  I think we’ll try coriander or nutmeg next time.  I subbed coconut oil for the canola oil and it worked out great.  I used low sodium broth which was a mistake – follow the recipe!
    • Thursday – Pear and Ground Pork Stuffed Winter Squash (we used carnival squash instead of acorn squash this time – and we prefer the acorn squash)
    • FridayChicken non-tortilla soup We took the boys bowling tonight and then out for hot dogs for them.  We ate oatmeal – it was the only healthier option there.  It was good!
    • Saturday – Date night!!!
  • Exercise/Activity: I’ll be hitting it hard this week again – shooting for 7 hours of activity.  My goal is 2 4-mile runs (Mon, Tues, Fri), 3 INSAN,ITY and KB workouts in the garage, and a weights class at the YMCA.  I need to keep working hard at cardio but really like the garage workouts for strength and endurance training.
    • Sunday – Mowed the lawn (47 minutes) – 11,200 Steps
    • Monday – Morning run (45 minutes) – 14,500 Steps
    • Tuesday – INSAN.ITY and kickboxing (52 minutes), more INSAN.ITY (28 minutes), track walking (10 minutes) – 14,800 Steps
    • Wednesday – Rest day!- 9,100 Steps (so not proud of this)
    • Thursday – INSAN.ITY and kickboxing (70 minutes) – 13,000 Steps
    • Friday – Track walking (66 minutes), INSAN.ITY core and balance (15 minutes) – 16,000 Steps
    • Saturday – Afternoon run (48 minutes)- 17,500 Steps
  • Notes and findings: 
    • I have a chest cold this week that doesn’t seem to be keeping me down, but it made me want to take a rest day.
    • Working out in the garage is… working out great!  I can’t believe how motivated I am to work out on my own.
    • I tried working out in the basement while the kids played and that proved to be difficult – I’ll keep working out while they nap!
    • We went to the Y on Friday morning to do nothing in particular other than give myself a parenting break.  My big kid was EXCITED to go and my little one couldn’t get to the toys soon enough.  I walked the track for an hour, watching my older son play with his friends in the gym just below.  It was fun – and I think I’ll do that every Friday that my little guy doesn’t nap in the morning!
    • I am done getting “egg white” breakfast sandwiches from McDo.nalds.  I figured they weren’t great for me, but they are so tasty and thue “healthiest” option in the morning if I’m choosing to go there (and I go there Mon-Wed after preschool drop-off just for their Die.t – which is just so good!).  I have known that they’d have to go at some point, so when I read all about how it’s made, I decided to ditch them.  I had one last one and that’s it – I’m done.  I’ve been there twice since saying “no more” and I’ve just gotten my and I’m perfectly happy with that.
    • I met my exercise goals with the exception of a weights session.  😦
