Sweat, Sushi and the Second Semester of School

Who else is excited to see the weekend.  It has been a week!  So many things fell apart and so many things also came together.  I got two thumbs up from the doctors with a little side of something to think about as far as my health goes.  All it all it was a pretty good week!  Im feeling super thankful for all that I have.


Fridays around here are for taking a few minutes to look back at the week and think of all the things that made you happy.  The little things that made you smile or the big wins of the week.  The world has been heavy and angry lately so, I look forward to taking some time to be thankful and share my happiness.  Lets see what made the list this week!

Menu Plan 10•19•20

Here we go again.  Another week another menu.  And another weekend gone by.  Im running off of no sleep at all.  Stretched, showered then got in bed.  Fell asleep for a few minutes, and then boom, wide awake.  I was nauseous for some reason.  Had to sit up in bed.  Next thing I know, David was getting up for work.  So I got up too.  My alarm was set to go off in an hour and trying to sleep at that point would have been a disaster, so I didn't.  Friday night I was out by 10 and up at 6.  Sunday I slept till noon.  I guess, I didn't need to sleep last night.   Ive got my morning routine down, its the nighttime routine I need to pull together.  Whatever.  Its a new week and I want to be excited and focused on that.  Even if it got a rough start, I can rally.

Which means its time to talk food and this weeks menu.  I am trying to use up what I have in the freezer, so this weeks menu is a little bit of everything.  And theres more than just chicken.  Thank the flavor Gods because I can tell the boys were getting a little chickened- out.  I feel their pain.  I am a little veggied out.  I actually have to go to the hospital later today to do more lab work.  Since rearranging my diet, I have had to watch my blood work even more closely because all the extra vitamin K stops my blood thinners from working effectively.  I mean damn, whats a girl got to do to be healthy around here.  So much.  The answer is, so much.

Anyways, here is what we will be having this week.

Menu Plan 10•12•20

Oh Monday!  I have all the sighs this morning.  Day one of early wake ups.  I am determined to add earlier mornings to my life so that I can get into bed earlier too.  But Mondays are hard.  I did wake up, make the bed and have coffee before David checked in though so thats a start.  I set my daily intentions and journaled before the sun came up.  I got the boys fed and set up for school.  And I have a few minutes before I have to check on them again.  But first, I need to lock in this weeks menu.

Hope Whispers Menu Monday

The guys have a pretty good week coming up.  I do too. Now all I have to do is make sure I make time to cook up my planned meals.  I might end up getting them cooked ahead of time so that I stick to it.  I need to branch out a little bit and add some new recipes in.  This week things are kinda comfortable.  And we they aren't doing a meatless Monday meal, because, omg I live with a bunch of carnivores!  Its gonna be a tasty week.

Menus, Meditations and Morning Routines.

And its FRIDAY!  Finally and for real.  I have been thinking it was Friday for the last 2 days.  So I am extra excited.  This week just seemed to drag on and on.  But then the weekends disappear into thin air?  Who came up with these rules anyways?
Friday F Words
Well before the day gets away from me, I figure I better get to the good stuff.  One of the reasons I love Fridays so much.  Because on Fridays, I take a look back at the week and pick out the things that made me happy.  And the things that I am thankful and grateful for.

Menu Plan 10•5•20

I don't know if it was just me, but the weekend kinda blew though here.  One minute it was Friday and suddenly it is Monday and Im still standing here trying to figure out what the heck just happen.  Le sigh.  I guess that means its just time to get on with it.  

Menu Monday

First things first, FOOD!  The pantry and fridge are locked and loaded and this weeks menu is ready to go.  We decided that one day a week we will try to have a meatless meal so that we can all sit down together and have dinner!  Im so excited for this.  We actually used to do this a while back but some how lost track.  It will be nice to sit down and really share a meal again. Here is what this weeks menus look like.

October 2020 Goals

I don't know how, but its OCTOBER!  And I was so not ready for it.  I mean, sure Im eager to get this year over with, but I feel so unprepared.  Such an uncomfortable feeling.  So much so that working on my nasty procrastination habit just landed at the top of my monthly goals.  Look at me go! HA!

I have a lot of work to do this month!  But after doing pretty good on last months goals, I am up to the challenge. Have you decided on goals for October?  Here are mine.
