This week was not a good week, with regards to, keeping to the program. I did not keep to the plan, I ran late all week so skipped breakfast, thinking I would pick it up at work – did not work. Lunch was the only menu where I did ok. The good news is, I now know, that I eat when I have a high-pressure day at work and come home tired. So, I will just have to make sure there are prepared meals in the fridge.
Here’s this weeks menu, where most of this are variations on last week since I have most of the ingredients still in the fridge. Goals for this week is to get on plan and introduce the exercise.
|Saturday||Egg||Tempeh Stir Fry|
|Sunday||Oatmeal with grated apple + sultanas||Slow-cook Dahl + Wild Rice|
|Monday||Oatmeal with Banana+Unsalted Peanut Butter||Steamed Fish and Vegetable Pockets + Quinoa|
|Tuesday||Fruit Salad with Flax seed||Vegetable Pasta Bake|
|Wednesday||Fruit Salad with Flax seed||Pizza (using FlatOut Bread instead of Whole Wheat Pita)|
|Thursday||Oatmeal with grated apple + sultanas||Vegetable Frittata|
|Friday||Fruit Salad with Flax seed||Bean Burgers + Salad|
Budget this week, will be easy as there is nothing I need to go out and buy. Funny thing is yesterday’s ice fall (yes ice fall – not snow) has made it very unlikely to get out of the house today anyway :-). The ice is at least an inch deep around and on the house and my poor plants are buckling under the weight. I am refusing to look at the veggie garden, as I will be upset if I loose all of the crop.
The ice is starting to melt but the concern will be if it can completely melt in time before the evening drop in temperatures again – which means it could be another inside day tomorrow. Anyway, this is how it looks at the moment.

Sean’s Playground had a nice coating of ice. His job today was to de-ice his playground which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Our table on the deck, with an inch of ice cover….hmmm I seem to remember asking the hubby for a table cover to protect the table. Wonder where it is 🙂 ?
Our Deck covered with ice, it’s like walking across a grater – the ice is that hard and has the lumps from the ice pellets that fell.
Icicles forming as the ice starts to melt; that is, ice also going down the chimney as well.
