Rebooting…

Standard

In all truth, it only took a few days for me to get my days back on track since we returned from Australia on the 15th. {I did have a few nights of going to bed early and then waking up in the middle of the night for four hours at a time.} And surprisingly, catching up at work only took about a week. But that was followed by a $400 vet trip for Sophie Jean to have a tooth removed with the longest recovery time I’ve ever encountered with her.

I also spent evenings having dinners with friends to catch up. Then, I a wonderful birthday weekend celebration including dinner at the best Wine Bar in Minneapolis {more to come!}, golfing with friends, winning a game of Texas Hold ‘Em, enjoying a Crème Brûlée French Toast Brunch and finding Pumking on tap. Nothing to complain about there!

That was followed by a three-day work-week (again – not complaining!) in order to make my way to Green Bay for our second Packer game as a (Gold Package) Season Ticket Holder.

So it’s time to reboot and get back into the routine. That includes finances, workouts, meal-planning and blogging. But that doesn’t mean this doesn’t include fun!

planning

To reboot, here’s what I’ve got planned for the week:

Food

Dinners:

  • MondayChocolate Chili
  • Tuesday – Leftover Chocolate Chili
  • Wednesday Pork Chops with Garlic Parmesan Parmesan Broccoli (Seriously, I made this for Rob and had a bite and had a taste. It wasn’t bad! I’m going to try to eat a whole serving.)
  • Thursday –  Leftover Pork Chops with Garlic Parmesan Parmesan Broccoli
  • Friday – Our monthly Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament begins! Happy Hour will most likely be at Carbone’s, where I love their Cheeseburger Wrap!
  • Saturday – We have Groupons to use that expire this month at The Tangiers, Firehouse Grille and Mattie’s on Main. We’ll most likely use one this day.
  • Sunday – TBD – Packer game at noon!

Lunch:

Breakfasts:

Fitness

I’m having a hard time doing any hard core workouts without having back issues or cramps. I know I can just walk, but that doesn’t feel like enough cardio for me. I’ve been doing HIIT by using the first day of the Couch to 5k as a guide, where I sprint (or run as fast as I possibly can) the running portion. It’s made me very sore. So I’m going to alternate workouts based on how I feel. But here are the days I plan to workout.

  • Monday – Walk 1 hour OR Run 1 mile OR HIIT Run/Walk OR 30 min on recumbent bike.
  • Tuesday Walk 1 hour OR Run 1 mile OR HIIT Run/Walk OR 30 min on recumbent bike.
  • Wednesday – Walk 1 hour OR Run 1 mile OR HIIT Run/Walk OR 30 min on recumbent bike.
  • Thursday – Walk 1 hour OR Run 1 mile OR HIIT Run/Walk OR 30 min on recumbent bike.
  • Friday – REST
  • Saturday – Walk 1 hour OR Run 1 mile OR HIIT Run/Walk OR 30 min on recumbent bike.
  • Sunday – REST

How do you reboot?

Cheers~

  1. You’ve had so much fun lately! Other than our trips to Mayo in Rochester, that’s been the extent of our travel this year. I only have one vacation day left until the end of the year – that’s going to be a long three months!

    I am rebooting too – it seems that if I let one area of my life slack, like dominos everything else falls down with it.

    Here’s to us both having a good week!
