  • Food:  We started the week off pretty well, back to our Paleo lifestyle (with the exception of breakfast on Sunday because, well, it was Sunday breakfast!).  I’ve had a strange desire for chai lattes lately and really need to kick that habit (330 calories each with TONS of sugar = NOT OK).  They’re just so good!  Back to cooking on Monday and holy hell did I miss that.  I’m serious!  We kicked the week off with one of our favorite recipes and it was, once again, terrific!
    • Sunday – Fiesta Chicken Soup
    • Monday – Curry Bison Sliders and Curry Cauliflower
    • Tuesday – Shrimp in Horseradish Mustard Sauce and Peas
    • Wednesday – Pork and Apple Sliders with Maple-Buttered Brussels Sprouts
    • Thursday – Greek Chicken with Roasted Carrots
    • Friday – Pan.era Caesar Salad and French Onion Soup
    • Saturday – Date Night!
  • Exercise/Activity:
    • Sunday – Lots of yard work – mowing, trimming, bagging (95 minutes) – 12,600 Steps
    • Monday – Family bike ride (60 minutes), weight lifting and abs (20 minutes), yard work (80 minutes) – 12,600 Steps
    • Tuesday – INSANITY class (40 minutes), walking (10 minutes) – 13,700 Steps
    • Wednesday – Bodypump class (43 minutes), walking (73 minutes) – 19,000 Steps
    • Thursday – Jogged 3.4 miles (41 minutes), yard work (25 minutes) – 18,000 Steps
    • Friday – KB Bags (46 minutes), walking (57 minutes), weights (10 minutes) – 17,800 Steps
    • Saturday – Adventure Triathlon (kayaking 37 minutes, biking 68 minutes, running 43 minutes) – 16,100 Steps
  • Notes and findings: 
    • I am so happy to be cooking again!  When Hottie is out of town, there really is no reason for me to slave over a meal that only I’ll truly enjoy, so we eat out a lot.  I was so relaxed chopping veggies, shopping for the week, and preparing fun meals once again.
    • I’m finding that the lattes are killing me – and they have to go.  When you add them up, they’re totaling 1200-1500 calories a week and that’s just not OK.  Those are calories that I wouldn’t consume otherwise, so they really make no sense.  I didn’t have a coffee drink of any kind on Thursday and I felt great about it!
    • I can feel myself getting stronger and stronger, and my weight isn’t changing and that’s being reflected in my body fat % loss this week – 0.4%.
    • I switched the body fat monitor to athlete mode given my level of activity for the last 12 weeks.  I had the dip in body fat in both modes (normal and athlete) because I corrected how I’m holding the body fat monitor (I knew they were doing it wrong at the gym, but I changed how I did it so it would reflect the same numbers that they had.  I’m back to doing it correctly).  Holding it correctly and switching to athlete mode got the same result as normal mode being held wrong.  It’s a wash!

Next Week

Author: Courtney

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!
