Recovering & a Menu Plan

Today is about recovery.  Not just recovery from my long run yesterday, which really wasn’t long compared to last week, but still.  Sunday is recovery day.  I am also recovering from Hannah’s birthday and a tad too much wine last night.  Will I ever learn? 

In addition to trying to sleep in, which was an epic fail (I love that phrase, so I had to fit it in somewhere), I put yoga on the schedule for today and committed to nothing else.  Yeah, I would grocery shop, but no pool, no shopping, etc.  Sleeping in lasted until about 7 AM.  What am I, 75?  I feel like my grandparents getting up at the crack of dawn when I don’t have to be up for anything.  I meandered out of bed and to my coffee pot to make the coveted nectar of the gods.  Hannah presented me with my chores for the day.  What, she turns 9 yesterday and now she is in charge of delegating the chores?

I love that Aaron has to build a deck today, Jon has “stuff” to do and Hannah has “no chores”.  LOL!  At least she put yoga & blog on my list along with shopping for her at Justice

I did shop online today thanks to my Ebates email.  Yes, I am a sucker, but this sucker saved some money and is getting money back. 

The day ended with a 75 minute yoga class, Chipotle and a glass of red wine.  I do have a message for Chipotle – please add plain avocados to your menu.  Those of us who can’t eat onions, but love avocados, can’t eat the guacamole and that makes me sad.  I do love that they have great gluten-free options and are usually very careful if you get the manager involved in your order. 


Menu plan for this week is thrown together – lack of energy & motivation on my part.  I sure hope I win Shirley’s (Gluten-free Easily) giveaway of Stephanie O’Dea’s book on organization.

Sunday – Chipotle – spur of the moment after yoga class

Monday – Pasta with roasted grape tomatoes, chickpeas, goat cheese and fresh basil and salad

Tuesday – Tacos or Mexican pizza, black beans and salad

Wednesday – BBQ pork tenderloin, baked sweet potatoes, corn on the cob & salad

Thursday – Breakfast for dinner

Friday – MYOP (pizza) and salad

Saturday – Hannah’s sleepover – don’t ask me what I have done – I just know that I will be having a lot of coffee


Don’t forget to enter the GF Bisquick giveaway – it ends tonight at midnight!

  • I wish I had the getting up early problem. For some reason I have flipped from being that way to not being able to wake up early no matter what time it is that I go to bed!!!!! Hope ya feel better!

  • Thanks so much for the link love, dear! Fingers crossed that random.org will pick you (did I just say that? isn't that biased? LOL).

    Hannah is a cutie! Glad she had a happy birthday. Doling out everyone else's chores doesn't seem like too bad of a birthday indulgence. ;-)
