Meal plans and the week ahead

This week is another busy one.  Today, we're going to church in Grand Blanc.  Then we are headed out to my aunt's house on the lake for our cousin Haleigh's birthday party.  Hopefully I'll hear today about picking up some fresh chickens this week.  I ordered 8 whole birds and plan to butcher them up to freeze in meal-size portions of the different cuts (breasts, thighs, legs, etc.).  So we'll see when I can pick them up.  Monday I am going to another free Zumba class on the beach with some friends.  Tuesday, I will hopefully be picking up the chickens and Kevin is probably going biking.  Wednesday I'll be packing... at least at this point.  Thursday morning, we're leaving for a few days in Lafayette, Indiana.  At least that is the plan now.  Kevin will go either way - he has to go for work.  Carson and I will tag along as long as my job doesn't get too crazy and my boss doesn't change his mind about letting me take a couple days off. Assuming we go to Lafayette, we'll come home on Saturday night. 

I'm going to try something new by posting whatever exercise I was able to do in the week prior. We'll see if I keep up with the posts, or not. I'm sure there will be weeks I forget about posting it, or just don't have the time to include it (I'm often pressed for time with these posts). But maybe it'll be good and make me feel more accountable. Every week will be different, based on time available after work and what I actually feel like doing. But we'll see how it goes. Last week's exercise looked like this: Sunday - 1hr hatha yoga. Monday - 2 mi walk, 1hr zumba. Tuesday - 2mi walk, kettlebell video.  Wednesday - 1 mi walk, kettlebell video.  Thursday - ~1 1/2 hrs of walking around Grand Blanc for Back the the Bricks. Friday - 20min fat-burning yoga, swimming, 10min elliptical. Saturday - 10min elliptical, 1hr hatha yoga.

Nice work on the exercise!! Good luck keeping it up. I find that my blog helps keep me accountable for things. So hopefully that will help you.

Enjoy your trip if you end up going.

Yummy meals ;-) I was actually going to do bacon, avocado, egg salad sandwiches...but we're almost out of eggs. So I changed to BATs. I don't have any lettuce right now.
