Monday Menu Planning

I haven't done a formal menu planning in a long time because Hubby usually does most of the cooking and/or things have been busy and we don't know what we are doing until we actually do it.  However, this week it will just be Baby Girl and I on our own, so it is up to me to get back into the kitchen!

Monday: Broccoli, Ham,and Cheese Casserole
Tuesday: Happy Birthday to Me!!  My friends are taking me out - Yum! :)
Wednesday: Salsa Chicken, Cucumber Salad
Thursday: Pita Pizzas, salad
Friday: Sweet and Spicy Sausage, veggie and ranch dip
Saturday: C.O.R.N*
Sunday: Probably grab something on the way home from the airport after picking Hubby up.

Way back when (When I actually kept up with my blog), I would reflect not only on my food choices but also my exercise for the past and upcoming here goes:

Last week I didn't do much throughout the week with Thanksgiving and all -- plus I was tapering for a half marathon that was yesterday.  So I only did 2.5 miles midweek... then ran 13.1 on Sunday!

As for my workouts this coming week...I'm going to play it by ear.  I want to make sure my body has plenty of time to recoperate and heal from the half marathon yesterday.  I may do a few short, easy runs later in the week.  Once I feel back up to par, I want to start with my 100 pushups, 200 situps, and 200 squats programs again.  But that may have to wait unil next week!

*C.O.R.N. = Clean Out the Refridgerator Night

100 Push Ups? 200 Sit Ups? and 200 Squats? Wow! I think I might need to join you for those! Seriously.

Elizabeth, they are really great programs where the goal is to eventually be able to do 100 pushups, 200 situps, and 200 squats. There is NO way I could do it right now! haha Pushups are always my downfall. I have very little upper body strength.

So, I looked at the programs and think I should do them as well. Interestingly enough, I tried the initial test for the squats and stopped at 40... though I could have done more. I know we do a LOT of walking here since we don't have a car... and we climb a lot of steps and Prague is filled with hills, but I'm really NOT that in-shape so I was surprised that I could do so many. Push-ups are absolutely my downfall too. I always wimp out and do the girl version. :)
