133.0 - Menu Planning Monday - A little over TWELVE WEEKS OUT!

It's Monday, again. Seriously... time goes by way to quickly! Vacation was wonderful! As you can see, the weight bumped up quite a bit, although I am confident that a lot of it is water. Man, am I bloated!! I'll do a mini recap at the end of this post... First things first. Menu Planning Monday! Gotta stick to the schedule folks! :)

My meals are about to get pretty darn boring. Thank you contest prep!

MONDAY: Chicken breast, salad, baked fries

TUESDAY: Turkey burger on whole wheat English muffin, green beans

WEDNESDAY: Chicken enchilada casserole

THURSDAY: Crab cakes, side salad (plus, DH will get a broccoli, rice, and cheese side)

FRIDAY: Chicken breast, side salad, baked potato

SATURDAY: Steak on the grill, sweet potatoes, salad

SUNDAY: Chicken "fried" pork chops (DH), plain baked pork tenderloin (me!), green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy (DH)

Yes, that is right, showtime is quickly approaching. My suit should be here any day now. I will follow up with the designer tonight. I am doing the stoning myself. :) I can't wait to see it! The fabric is on point. Loves it!


While I didn't miss a workout last week, my diet certainly suffered with all of the travel. I'm looking forward to cleaning up my act. On the fitness front, I will start the Couch to 5k program from Cool Running tomorrow. I need to find my running groove again!... I am also thinking about posting up my workouts in my side bar... just an idea.

PREP IS HERE! and I am ready to BRING IT!


We could not have had a better time! The food, people, weather, EVERYTHING was fabulous! Man, did we stay active, too! There was no lounging around for me or DH. Most of the time we were walking, swimming, err... drinking... LOL! 12oz. curls counts as something, right? I'll close out this post with a couple pics. I'll be sure to post up more later in the week as well. I don't want to bog you down with hundreds of pics at once! LOL!


I tried to get an action shot of him jumping. Action shot: FAIL

Oh yes, we were breaking it down, Thriller style!!

TOLD YA there were lots of pics!!! LOL!

Happy Monday folks! Make today count!
