Busy Day = Tough Food Day

We were very busy today and I don't think I spent more the 4 hours (2 of those I took a nap) at home during the day today! We started out our day with a play date (which was super fun!) at a local indoor play area.  The only thing they serve for food is pizza; no out side food or drink allowed, of course. So I had one slice of cheese pizza and a water.  Not too bad, but not great either.  Then after nearly a two hour nap, we decided to go to the beach for the evening.  We had italian for dinner and I tried to pick a healthier option so I went with broiled haddock.   It was tasty, but I am sure not good for points. Thank goodness for FLEX points!!!  :-)  Hoping that this "rough food day" doesn't spoil the week!!  Only time will tell!

Since I have been on summer break I have been going to bed at least an hour past my usual bed time of 10:PM. Its finally caught up with me I think because I have been super sluggish this week and sleeping in until at least 9 in the morning which is really late for me; one day this week I even slept in until 9:45! WOAH!  So tonight I am heading to bed early in hopes that I can feel a bit more like myself and not like a slug.  Sunshine and I will be going to the library in the morning for a summer craft session and then perhaps we will go to the park depending on the heat.  I really need to get her outside more often; its good for the mind, body, and soul.  Not just for her, but for me as well!

Originally posted on my other blog on Mon July 19, but have decided to move these posts here!

I have been following a blog called "I'm An Organizing Junkie".  She has some wonderful ideas and great inspiring posts so I am trying to learn from her.  On of her features is called Menu Plan Monday, where each Monday she posts what she is planning for her families menu for the week and encourages others to link up; what a great place to get recipe ideas!  So here is my first post and link up:

Monday: Frozen meals (we have a wake to attend this evening)

Wednesday: Kielbasa, corn on the cob

Thursday: Black Brimmer

Took a bit of a break!

I took about a month off, but now I am getting back on the wagon.  I signed up for WW and went to my first meeting tonight.  I weighed in and was surprised that I haven't gained back all that much!  I have changed my WI day to Monday's for now, but it could change depending on which part time job I pick up in September.  My mum is also joining me at the meetings.  Here we go....
