Menu Monday (Can I Go Back to Bed?)


I overslept.  Oh well.

  • Monday: Turkey Pasta Something
  • Tuesday: Baked Chicken with Roasted Veggies
  • Wednesday: Mahi Mahi Tacos
  • Thursday: Steak Stir Fry
  • Friday: Casa Chimayo with TPWSNBN’s Family
  • Saturday: Winging It (Bon Iver Concert)
  • Sunday: Black Bean Qunioa Salad

I need to get my eating back on track.  I am starting with simply tracking and staying with in my points today.  TPWSNBN is allowed to veto anything I put in the shopping cart if I can’t give a good reason for it to be there (Honey, I need the gallon on fat free ice cream…. For.. Uh.. a work ice cream social.. yeah.. that’s it….).

Grocery List 9.10.12 – If you care you can download my grocery list to see the types of things I buy on a weekly basis.. you know if you care :-)

September Workouts – My workouts so far and for the rest of the month

I am taking it one day at a time.  I am going to track today and stay with in my points.  I am going to run when I get home and then walk the dogs later this evening with TPWSNBN.  Our Dog Blarney (The Blarn Man) is overweight due to use feeding him whatever and not walking him.  We are horrible dog owners.  We have been lazy with his care.  It’s completely our fault and it scares me.  So – we are changing things.  He will be walked nightly.  He would have also been walked this morning if we had not slept in.  Whoops.  See how we are horrible?

I have to return some items to H&M today, and I really don’t care how much money they give me back just as long as I don’t have to stare at the items in my closet.  So bright and vibrant but ill fitting.  It’s depressing when clothes do that.  I am fully okay with accepting store credit as I love their casual tops that have 3/4 length sleeves.  I’ll just buy more of those.

I’m also excited as I found Pumpkin Spice Via! NOW I CAN HAVE PUMPKIN WHENEVER I WANT.  I am a bit too excited I think.

I also found jeans at Target that are 20 bucks and I love them.  YAY BARGAINS!

This Monday is flying by – of course now that I say that it will come to a screeching halt.   I had to respell and retype that sentence 4 times to get it right.  Am I awake?  Can you all read this?  Is this a dream?

Speaking of dreams.. I had a NIGHTMARE that Chris Martin of Coldplay was killed in a car accident.  I was like terrified when I woke up.  I still haven’t seen them live!  Plus for Gwyneth!!  and the Babies!  Sadness.. Why can’t I have normal dreams?  Like where Matt Bomer, or Channing Tatum are my boyfriend and all they want to do is snuggle all day and read me poetry all night?

Meanwhile, I am rocking my World Literature Class this semester.  I know what you’re thinking.  “You have a Bachelor of Arts in English, you should be rocking it.”  Yes I know. I am already amazing in that respect, but, I also am rusty when it comes to writing papers and being all studious.  I mean I wasn’t studious or awesome in my undergrad really.  I was too busy working full time, partying, and driving to Blacksburg to see my Boyfrand. So School took a backseat.  Literally.  My books were in my backseat more than they were in front of me.  BUT I STILL GRADUATED AND PASSED A LOT OF MY CLASSES WITH B’s OR A’s – okay and C’s.  Whatever.  It’s English with a concentration in creative writing.  It’s not like I got a C in Gross Anatomy and I’ll be operating on you someday.

I’ll just be teaching your children and the leaders of tomorrow.


I’m at that point where I want all new running clothes.  Much to the dismay of TPWSNBN that shiz ain’t free. It ain’t cheap either.  So I am trying to wait till I actually have to wear full on tights when I run, like as in Winter running – to buy anything else.  I have enough tops/jackets to get me through, but I am really hoping the current pants I have will be oh so too big when it’s time to wear them, which then gives me the best excuse ever.

“Honey, but I lost all this weight and got super hot for you.”

That usually does the trick.


Enjoy your Monday Funday!
