This week was much like last week in that I was again, on my own all week. Hubby and I said goodbye to each other again Monday afternoon so he could catch his flight and I could face the week ahead on my own. Thankfully this does not happen too often with his job, but when it does it really rocks our world here at home. We rarely do anything apart, he is usually always home at the same time everyday and all my daycare children know when this time is, and honestly, it just makes life a bit crazy trying to work around when we can find the time to chat in between busy schedules. Add in a time difference (if any) depending on where he is compared to me here at home and it can get a little difficult…. I always pray I am the earlier time so I can go to bed at a normal hour.
Anyhow, like last week, I did what I wanted when I wanted to do it. Here is the outcome of my workouts this week:
Sunday: 1.5 mile walk
Monday: 3 mile walk together before dropping him at the airport, 30 minutes elliptical at the gym
Tuesday: gym:30 minutes elliptical and stretching
Wednesday:home: floor weight routine and 30 minute recumbent bike
Thursday: gym: 30 minute elliptical, upper body weights, and stretching
Saturday: rest…but a ton of big household chores…..scrub carpets, do loads and loads of laundry, and just hang out with my hubby who arrived home finally.
Meals were easy peasy since, for the most part, it was just me. It sure makes grocery shopping much easier when its less mouths to feed. Here’s a peak at the meals from the week.
Sunday: baked ham, roasted brussel sprouts, scalloped potatoes(family dinner)
Monday: philly cheese steak brat, sauteed perogies with spinach and bacon.
Tuesday: chicken and cheese quesadilla with stuffed poblano peppers(dinner with our son home)
Thursday: bruschetta personal pizza
Saturday: mom’s day off….fend for yourself
The week as a whole….I would say was pretty good. I love being back at the gym. Renovations there are almost complete and I am pretty excited to hear we will be getting kettle bells soon. I love kettle bells and wish I had more at home, so this is something I am really looking forward to having access to at the gym.
Life lately has been many unanswered questions…however, the one thing I am sure of is that winter is getting closer to making an arrival and I am preparing myself the best way I know how….I have a whole tub of hot chocolate, my Christmas list has an electric heated blanket on it, and I have stocked up on lip moisturizer….I literally have tubes of this stuff everywhere! The joys of frigid temperatures makes me want to cringe!!!!!
