Monday Madness

I had a busy weekend, and I am paying for it! Two days at the lake makes for a sore, sore body on Monday morning. I have a bit of sunburn, even though I applied plenty of sunscreen. I can't ever win that battle. After tubing and swimming for hours, I have sore muscles that I have never felt before, seriously! Each and every muscle in my body was used this weekend, I assure you. We had some family visiting, and really enjoyed ourselves. I should have taken today off to recuperate.

School goes back in 2 weeks. Am I ready? More than you know....I just want to get it over with. I hate waiting for things to happen, I'm ready to start today.

This week is going to be nice and relaxed, with no appointments or after work meetings. It will be nice to go home, cook dinner, and relax. I need to catch up on my laundry and house cleaning from the weekend, as it was neglected to enable me to partake in fun activities. I was glad to get some grocery shopping done last night, and plan the menu for the week:

Monday - Take Out/ Eat Out (the decision will be made on the way home from Weight Watchers tonight)

Tuesday - Crab Cakes, Scalloped Potatoes, Green Beans (7 points to total)

Wednesday - Turkey Cheddar Brats, Mashed Potatoes, Sauerkraut (5 points total)

Thursday - California White Pizza, Salad with Tomato Vinaigrette Dressing (8 points total)

Friday - Spinach Filo Pie, Sweet Corn (8 points total)

Because we work so far from home, we rarely have time to make anything from scratch. Although, I did buy the new Hungry Girl cook book (200 Recipes Under 200 Calories), it should arrive in the mail on Wednesday, so next weeks menu may contain actual recipes, I said may.

The crab cakes are from Wal-Mart, and they are only 4 points each. The Turkey Cheddar Brats. are also from Wal-Mart, and are made by Johnsonville. They are 3 points each. The California Pizza Kitchen White Pizza is store bought, frozen thin crust pizza, at 6 points for 1/3 of the pie. It's delicious, and quite filling. Lastly, the Spinach Filo Pie is a Trader Joe's product. We haven't had it before, so we are looking forward to trying it.

Weigh in is tonight, I'm hoping to hit the 35 pound mark, I only have .2 pounds to loose to get there. Cross your fingers for me!

Happy Monday!
