Ok, this time I mean it....

I titled last Monday's post "Get Back on Track" after a weekend of sitting on my butt with the laptop. And last week was not terrible I guess, but I didn't really feel like I was back in the game. So I'm giving it another shot.

Good this weekend: Got in workouts Saturday & Sunday. Did some cooking and freezing of meals. Bad this weekend: Eating was not good. There was no tracking. There were potato chips. I didn't stick to a meal schedule and I'd end up starving, in the kitchen, looking for something to stuff in my mouth.

Still, I at least feel like I was somewhat productive. I have lunches for the week. I made a huge pot of spaghetti sauce. Made a small lasagna, using some of the sauce and froze 6 containers of sauce for future meals. We had lasagna last night, and there are leftovers for another meal (probably tonight).

Saturday morning I went for groceries, then we had to take the cats to the vet for their annual check up & shots. This is stressful for the cats and for me. It kills me to hear the sad little meows coming from the back seat of the car - all the way there, and all the way back. But we survived and it is all over for another year.

After that, Moon packed up his computer gear and went off for an evening of computer games with his friends and I indulged my love of playing in the dirt. I decided it was time to start some seeds...Let Garden Mania 2008 commence!

First I had to locate my supplies - a box that has my seed starting trays, seeds left from previous years, and my peat pots. I was having a hard time finding it and I was worried for a while there. Last fall Moon threw out a bunch of my plant pots while cleaning out the garage (I wasn't home). Apparently he couldn't tell that they were the good pots, only a couple of years old and in good condition. He did leave a few of the old pots that are cracking and that I wouldn't have minding losing. Sigh.

So, I was getting worried, but I did eventually locate the box in our disaster of a basement. Unfortunately, only one seed tray left and it was cracked. But I had my heart set on planting my seeds, so I fixed up my tray with duct tape and a plastic bag (just call me MacGyver). It's not perfect, but it will do until I can get to Canadian Tire and buy a new one. I still have some herbs to start, but that will have to wait until I can get another tray.

After that I did the treadmill thing, made some supper and relaxed for the rest of the evening.

Yesterday was a day of cooking, and I did get in a workout with weights. I'm feeling it today, which is actually good; makes me feel like I accomplished something.

So today - back to meal planning. Will get in a workout tonight. Will have a good week.

Daily Record
Weight: 144
Note: It was actually 144.something, but I was so shocked to see the 144 that I jumped off the scale and (apparently) blocked the rest of it out because I can't remember.

BF: WW English Muffin w/Nutella, coffee w/cream
Lunch: Curried Red Lentil Soup
Snack: Yogurt w/strawberries
Supper: Lasagna (leftover) & raw veggies

Planned Workout: Cardio on the treadmill
