If you fail to plan, you plan to fail

Some days, I hate that quote because it is so completely negative and leaves no wiggle room for recovery.  But most of the time it comes true.

This last weekend, I went to a big party with Rah-rah and it was a few days filled with chocolatey trail-mix, huge breakfasts, mini-doughnuts, cheese-curds, and alcohol.  Even when we made it home, dinner was a pizza with soda.  My body was practically SCREAMING for something healthy.

Last night, we decided to walk to the grocery store because I had reached my breaking point and I needed an apple.  Stat. I also needed some fresh air too.  When we got to the store, they didn’t have the awesome Honey Crisp apples as I was expecting, but I found a couple good Fuji apples that suited my needs nicely. 

I don’t have a menu and we didn’t go grocery shopping for supplies.  Rah-rah’s car is broken down,  our room is a mess, we need to do laundry and work has been very busy after the long weekend.  Given that, I’ll be hard-pressed to meet my goals for the week to have a healthy menu and get in some exercise… But, I’ve got a plan:

– On the way home tonight, I’ll pick up a new battery for Rah-rah’s car.
–  Dinner tonight = Spaghetti Squash with Supreme Lean Ground Beef and Classico Tomato Basil Spaghetti Sauce.  This will come together in under 20 minutes.
–  Rah-rah and I will also tackle the pile-o-laundry that seemed to appear out of nowhere upon our return from vacation. 
–  While waiting for the laundry to finish, I will install the battery in Rah-rah’s car and hope that it fixes the problem.  If not, we may have to make a few trips to the auto-parts store.  If this wraps up quickly, maybe he and I can play some frisbee or ladder ball.
– Lastly, after switching the laundry from the washer to the dryer, I can sit down to work on the rest of the week’s menu.

This will all work, as long as I cancel the social plans that I had for this evening.

Ah, the joys of responsibility 🙂  I’ll be sure to take pictures and report back on how it goes.  I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend and that your Tuesday is shaping up nicely.
