I think I'm going to wait and post about Chicago tomorrow. Today I have a few other things to thing about...
I actually lost a pound in September. That is far from my goal, but seeing as I was on vacation two weekends in a row, I'm going to take it.
My goals for October are going to be behavioral. Hopefully if I follow them, I will have success on the scale! This is the plan for this week:
- Food - follow the Fresh Diet (more on that below) every single day. I will give myself a one meal off just in case I need it, but I have no work lunches and no night/weekend plans, so there isn't any reason that I can't start this first week off right.
- Work out - this week I need to focus on getting better. I plan to walk at lunch with Godmother on Wednesday, but that is the only thing set in stone. If I feel much, much better at the end of the week, I will go to CrossFit, but I'm going to play that by ear. This infection knocked me on my ass and I need to make sure I kick it.
- Water - Drink 100 ounces of water (plain water) each day.
- Organizing - Now that my vacations are over, it is time to get back to organizing. Today's goal will be to go through all of the clothes in the spare room to sort (keep, donate, trash). By the end of the week, I would like to have the spare room completely ready for my dad to bring the shelves. (That isn't happening until Thanksgiving, but no need to wait.) If there is more time, I would like to get started something new. I think I will start with the kitchen.
Southwestern Style Scrambled Eggs with Fire Roasted Corn,
Fresh Salsa, Bell Peppers, Pepper-Jack Cheese & Nine Grain Toast
Chia and Pink Peppercorn Crusted Salmon with Minted Balsamic Glaze
With Creamy Parmesan, Parsnip and Potato Mash and Exotic Mushroom Ragout
Cherry Vanilla Cheesecake
Asian Style Chicken Salad with Baby Bok Choy, Watercress,
Alfalfa Sprouts, Water Chestnuts, 7 Sesame Soy Dressing
Chocolate Dipped Strawberries with Creamy Vanilla Ricotta Cheese
The servings are small (as they should be since they are "right-sized" for individual servings and not what a typical restaurant might have). I'm hoping that they will have a lot of flavor, but I guess I will be able to let you know tomorrow!!
I'm committed to doing this for one month whether I like it or not. I think after a week, I will know how I feel about it.
Have a great week!
