Mamavation Monday - The Little Things Add Up

How was your week?

I fought tooth and nail for some "me" time, and I would have loved more but it was an improvement. I think I should allow for this small victory. The walking felt good and I hope this week allows for even more time.

As for water? That was better, too. I tried to add a little more in everyday.

Will power? I have to be honest, when I feel run down my will power just isn't there. A lack of sleep combined with poor snacking choices becomes a vicious cycle. My planned meals were great, but I failed to compliment them with all the right snacks. Lesson learned. This week more will be mapped out and ready to go.

Here is my week's menu plan:
  • Monday - Stuffed Peppers, salad &; sliced fruit.
  • Tuesday- Baked Salmon, wild rice and seared patti-pans
  • Wednesday- Crust-less Broccoli Quiche, pesto rolls & salad
  • Thursday- Spaghetti & Meatballs, salad
  • Friday- A Farm Fresh Dinner... whatever I can steam, boil or cook up straight from the field.
  • Saturday- Fresh Pasta - with garden tomatoes, basil and lemon juice
  • Sunday- Family Dinner - Tacos with fresh corn tortillas

As for working out? Well, a new #2weekchallenge begins tomorrow and I will be in. I am just trying to decide which DVD series to tackle this week. I just need to figure out what  kind of mood I am in, it might be a Top Trainers week for the variety.

How did the scale treat me? Well, finally lost some of the bloat and excess retained water... but the little things and added effort this week did add up for a big loss:

- 2 lbs!!! Finally a loss.

Question: Where are you planning for your feet to take you before 2011 ends? Any races or training plans?

I hope to take our family's feet back to the coast for an afternoon as well as a few toddler friendly hikes. September, before the Oregon rain arrives, is a great time to hike and avoid all those pesky mosquitoes. Personally I am still looking for a 5K and working towards that. I was side tracked this past month, and need to get refocused.
