What’s Cooking and the Week Ahead

Sunday night, already? I love my job but I am not ready for the work week to start. I kicked off this weekend in a very exciting way, I watched “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. In fact, I made the family watch it with me and we (me) were very excited to get to work and get my house cleaned and organized. My goal was to be sitting back with a glass of wine admiring all the hard work we did over the weekend. I am a dreamer at times because I should have known better than getting anything done when the calendar had 3 hockey games, 7 hockey practices, a lacrosse game, and 2 off season soccer training events. Needless to say, my house was not “Kondo-ed”

To redeem myself, I planned and organized meals for the week. I took to Pinterest to get some ideas that would be family friendly and Whole 30-ish. I picked a few meals, shopped and prepped for the week. I personally feel like I need an award for accomplishing this task as this is one that I struggle with all the time. Here are the meals I have planned for the week and I will report back how the family reacted:

The one thing that helped me was the grocery pick up. I have had my groceries delivered before and found that it was more work than it was worth and ended up being more expensive. This was slick, I reserved a time, ordered my groceries, and picked them up while my daughter was at soccer. I pulled into the parking lot, called a number, and my groceries were brought to my car. Now if only Costco would offer this service!!!

There is no other way to describe the week ahead but INSANE. I am over-scheduled at work and over scheduled at home. I am also getting ready to travel for work. I have not been good about getting up early to run so my goal for the week is to be up by 5 or 5:30 AM and to get on my treadmill at least 3 times this week. Baby steps.
