Today is my rest day. I went to bootcamp last night and felt great when I got home, but this morning I can feel the effects everywhere. Don’t get me wrong, I think this is great, I’m of the belief “no pain no gain”. So I always feel like I’ve accomplished something if I can still feel it the next day.
So I’ve ditched my yoga class today as I don’t know how much I really would have been able to do, and because it’s back to work tomorrow I figured I should make the most of it and catch up around the house. Today is bathroom, laundry catch up (which I started last night), vacuuming, mopping and cleaning out the fridge.
My partner has offered to do the shopping for me this afternoon, so that means I can do all the planning this afternoon, and write the shopping list for him. After all I hate shopping, but love planning our week so it works out perfectly.
I got a new toy yesterday, the tupperware pie shaper and I can’t wait to use it. I’m hoping to find a nice healthy homemade pie recipe for this week. My partner and I like pies but we don’t like to buy the frozen ones so I was thinking it might be time to get our own recipe.
So my mission for today is to find a pie recipe and do some prep for this week. Meal plans:
- Home made pies
- Satay chicken
- Soup (vegetable and pumpkin
- Beef stroganoff
- Chilli con carne
Plus I like to make some salads for work, and take some microwavable porridge for breakfast at work. I usually bake something as a snack during the week, this week it looks like banana bread because we have a few bananas up to banana bread status. Last week it was cookies, so at least this is a healthier option.
I like to have my week planned so if I have any unexpected surprises I’m ready. And I also like to start the week with a clean house, there’s nothing like coming home to a mess and having no energy to clean up.
I must admit, starting netball and bootcamp this week has lifted my spirits and given me some new motivation. Lets see if I can maintain it.
