Time For A Change

Sunday, May 05, 2013

Spent a good part of today discussing and planning the week ahead. Just finished preparing my meals for the week. Lotsa chicken and fish with two steak nights also.

Here's a brief typical day of eating for me:

BREAKFAST: Oats w milk & honey. Three eggs & three egg whites & a grain bread toast.
SNACK: Grain toast w ricotta, spinach & tuna
LUNCH: Cajun chicken & broccoli
DINNER: Steamed spiced fish w veges
SNACK: Fruit

Total cal about 1800 - 2000 approx.

Meals taken care of, I am changing up my workouts this week also. My strength has increased well and so, this week I will be focusing on muscle building parametres by increasing time under tension with higher reps and shorter rest intervals. My workouts should be a lot quicker but a lot more intense. We'll see how we go.

I will also be including another family meeting this week as a general catch up with everyone just to see if the kids need any help with their home work or work. And to make sure we all have a self check on what we all need to do to help each other out. I will be including bible study at least twice this week. Nothing too formal, a general chat on a couple of subjects to get us started again. We will do this around the dinner table.

Mainly I must make sure I get to bed on time if I have any hope of making this happen this week. We are a bit broke this week but the cupboards are full and the bills are paid so nothing to worry about except getting out of the bad habit of visiting the store every single night for an extra something we really don't need lol. Here's hoping for a smooth week.

Wishing everyone a happy start to their week. I'll prolly check in with everyone on Tuesday evening. Although I do read your blogs often I may not comment as I barely have time to scratch my nose sometimes lol. have a great week and may you all be blessed. Much love and, as always, KIA KAHA!

    I love that you are making family meetings a priority. Now that the two oldest have left for the summer, we are trying to engage with our youngest, Youngest kids are never in the spotlight like the big kids are....not that we didn't spend an insane amount of money on his gymnastics or neglect him in any way....just that now we get the chance to really KNOW him,,,what a gift!!! These people we created are really incredible!!

    I also took away great advice on my program. My endurance is increasing, but I need to take a step back and focus on gait training.....most people don't ever do this, and accidents happen....I know I drag a foot....habit or maybe I just learned to walk that way as an infant.....it is a potential source of problems...therefore, it is time to spend some time retraining my body....thank you for helping me see the need by focusing on all aspects of your own program.
