A couple of other miracles occurred this week at our house, I cooked AND went to he grocery store. Both are equally my most hated task. I sucked it up and I spent a few hours prepping some meals for the week. It was not what I wanted to do with a few spare hours but I am really thankful I did! I love that I don't have to think when I get home. I even had enough left over from each meal to pack our lunches (another huge accomplishment!).
I chose 3 easy meals that can be made ahead and warmed up in batches. Since we eat at weird times because I our schedule, I needed something that was filling but extremely quick. I think I did a great job and no one was gagging which is a sign that they liked what was in front of them. Unfortunately I don't have photographic evidence and people that know me will not believe that I cooked without proof.
This Week's Menu:
Monday and Tuesday
Wednesday and Thursday
Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Friday and Saturday
Italian Sausage Soup
It is too bad that I don't have the same ambition to workout. The gym is impossible to get a treadmill and it is subzero outside-so there is no running going on here (at least that my excuse). I don't want my big return to running to be on a dreadmill! I am very excited to get back to it but not ready to be a winter badass. I didn't run, but I was able to get out and play hockey this past Sunday and that has got to count for about 3 workouts! I was so tired and still am!
One habit at a time....
