W.I.A.W. & Week 3 Goals
Even though the calendar doesn't say it yet - fall weather is upon us... Jen at Peas and Crayons has created this wonderful venue to share our food ideas and now incorporated goal setting. My type A personality loves this!
My first few weeks series of goals included - meditating, cutting back to 1 daily cup of coffee and evening snacking to once a week and menu planning. So how am I doing with those things?
Mediating - not too bad - I think I need a new series. The woman who I've been using is beginning to get on my nerves a bit... which means not such a soothing experience.
Coffee and evening snacking - check and check and those extra pounds from the summer are gone - yippee!
Menu planning - I love! The girls help me and we've been cooking a lot more together which sometimes takes longer, but will help all of us in the long run (or at least that's what I keep telling myself)
This week I have two goals...
1 - to not buy take out or pay to go out for lunch or dinner. I need to specify that I will not be paying for dinner as I have two work events this week - so I'm not paying for it - my employer is. I had a grocery bill that made me feel a little light headed this weekend, so I've vowed to not pay for someone else to cook for me this week.
2 - to get at least 7 hours of sleep a night. With all of my new classes and the girls activities and the back to school colds that circulate I need to give myself all of the ammo I can to do everything on my agenda. I know being properly rested will help a bit with that.
So back to my food....
Breakfast pre-spin- pumpkin muffin & coffee
Post spin - apple and pecans
Lunch - butternut squash soup with hummus and crackers
Pre-track workout for my half marathon clinic - 1/2 tea biscuit (not pictured)
Dinner - steamed kale, tomato, poached eggs with a bit of shredded cheese on pumpernickel
