Extrememly internet/PC challenged lately
not entirely sure why yet
but very significantly worse than my normal awful.
Sorry but the last thing to be fixed will be my upload/download functionality which is almost totally broken again.

Rather than let team down, I'm doing a semi-cheat and essentially taling the 5 days of meals/snacks from my three 2/21/12 blogs and making them my meal plan this week.

There will be a couple relatively minor substitutions:
Almond Milk....... will be replaced all or partially with cows milk & rice milk
Black Bean/Corn Salsa .....will be replaced by cottage cheese and/or hummus
Oh yes, assume February was hot tea but LaborDay week will be ice tea.

and the only major substitution:
Leftover Goulash/Veggie soup .... will be replaced with steamed veggies (zucchini etal) over brown rice (with possibly a little leftover roast pork loin , if there is any left tomorrow which is highly doubtful)

Need pictures? see 2/21 blogs.... that shows you everything except the rice.

shopping list = pomegranate juice and more milk
I have everything else; just need to make some butterscothch pudding.
Other than the rice/veggie meal, that will be my only cooking for the next five days.
Hurrah! I can use the time to make a dent in that out-of-control to-do list !!!!
spend on the increased exercise from two other challenges this week, :) or :( ??

Exercise goals for this week ....well they are totally unrealistic.
Knowing that I won't be meeting them, I will totally NOT be stressed out or guilty for not meeting them. Rather, I'm using it as a fitness test just to see/measure how good/bad my fittness status currently is by seeing/tracking/journaling just how close, how much in some cases and how little in others, I come to achieving this week's heavy schedule.
My fitness challenge to myself will be .... to see how close to the hilltop I can get (without ignoring my body's warnings). I already know it won't be a failure as I've come a long way this year. I also don't anicipate a gold medal performance as I know I still have a ways to go. I plan to do some measurement though and gauge where in between I am and to identify key flaws so I can target them in plans created for the rest of the month. I also expect I will still be surprised by some of the successes, always a good thing. For fun/variety. I'll be doing a sampling of a good dozen evercise dvds I've never seen before. It should be an interesting & strange experience. That's one way to mix it up!!!

    emoticon Sandy! We know how unreliable your internet is, and this is an extremely creative way to solve that problem. Hopefully, if you look back at the challenge we were doing when you ate this stuff, you had a good weigh in. emoticon Unfortunately I've deleted all my previous food blogs, so I don't know what I ate when I had a good weigh in. I'm only dedicated to tracking my food when the challenge requires it. emoticon

    I think I saw that you're going to be doing the September Shred Team Challenge this week too. So no wonder you don't know how much you'll be able to do. It's a really tough and for most people unrealistic schedule, but for us die hards, we will give it our best shot. I think your 50% or more success goal is more than most people do on a good week. I know you'll ROCK IT!
