Present! I am doing better … feeling healthy … food mostly back on track … exercise back on track … getting ready for Christmas, recovering from Thanksgiving and ready to be a Nikki -go to the gym everyday because you want a t-shirt – nag -because I care – so I hope your creeping crud has stepped aside!
Yup … still alive … crazy busy … graded 60 projects last weekend … lots of paperwork … but now that is DONE!
Goals for this week … meal prep – DONE
Workouts … zumba today … DONE …. will go to gym Wed and SAT and will walk 10000+ steps Tues, Thurs and Fri
Ok … time for bed
Plan for this week ….
Food prep yesterday and today for dinners (crockpot chicken with mushrooms last night) and turkey meatballs (with zoodles for me … spaghetti for hubby). Lunches and breakfasts are made. Snacks are planned.
Exercise – walked today (arm issue kept me from Zumba) and will head to gym for elliptical tomorrow and Wed and S…[Read more]
Week was NUTS! Not only did I have all of the things to do, but I hurt my arm/shoulder (not sure how) and found myself unable to raise my arm past my waist (or sleep either) for a few days. It is doing much better now (although not completely better) but that effected my workouts (I got to the gym twice) but I made sure that I got my steps in. I…[Read more]
Well this week is going to be nuts … meetings every day after school so a plan is most definately necessary. First, my hubby is away for work so I don’t have to feed him (whoo hoo) so my food will be easier. I am prepped for breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners. I just need to “stick to the plan”. I do have a dinner meeting tomorrow wh…[Read more]

Wow Nik … stress is word! I totally agree with all above. Take the time you need to care for yourself … fight with your insurance … let others with knowledge help you … your stress management plan is amazing and you deserve to follow your own advice. We are all here for you … thinking about and praying for you!
This week my goals are as follows:
- Eat within my calorie/macro range according to my “plan” (and not eat more at night)
- Go to the gym on Wed and Sat (I already went today) and walk those extra steps the other days (including tomorrow and Tues when I have much going on .. I WILL find time to get those extra steps)
Answered in the other thread too but …..
Present! Surviving …. always a tough time of year but somehow we get through it. I have graded 147 summer assignments, written/typed up and submitted my unit and lesson plans, run copies, made seating charts (and revised due to class changes) and actually taught my classes too! Yup, all in 3 days (i…[Read more]

This is it … back to school on tues …full on .. full load …. 25 mins to eat/bathroom … so my plan is to :
Have breakfast before I leave (it will be ready so I just need to heat and eat) Bring protein shakes for mid-morning and bring lunch. bring a snack for after school for late days. Go take a walk or go to the gym after school be…[Read more]
Prepared – yes .. READY? No but can’t do anything about that lol.
Thanks for your suggestions … I am thinking I will continue with the protein shake in the am (I do use premier premade with a 1/2 scoop of click added) and will try to make it to my break, but if I can’t I will do what you suggest and sip during class … easier than snacking on something else
Workout in the am will NOT work for me LOL … I…[Read more]
Yes, we actually go back on Friday of this week for meetings and then Tues the students return for regular days.
My biggest challenge is figuring out when to eat/drink. My schedule is different this year (I have 1 extra class so I go 3 classes without any break .. then have 25 minutes for “lunch” at 10:15. I then have another class, a break (…[Read more]
My goal for this week is to ….
- Plan my menu for next week and purchase and prepare those items
- Get my work-outs in as scheduled
- Try the remaining recipes I picked out last week and give them a try early this week before I return to work.
So this week my goal was to make a plan of attack for September … my most stressful and crazy month. I was able to work on my lesson plans and worked on scheduling the things I know about now but unfortunately my work STILL has not provided all of the dates for faculty and dept meetings, so I will most likely have to rearrange things once…[Read more]
My plan for this week will be to continue my menu planning and try 2 of the recipes I found this week. I also want to get a plan together for my return to work (sept 1) and figure out when I can work out/gym etc vs after school meetings etc. I will put this all on my calendar for Sept. (I also have to start my lesson plans for school so that I…[Read more]
Well … after a few days this week feeling sick (like really sick) I am back to my old self and have looked at some recipes and ideas for breaking out of my menu rut:
breakfast – denver omelet in a mug … will try this next week
lunch – cottage cheese with “everything bagel” seasoning (I tried this and LOVE it!! … and I hate cottage cheese…[Read more]
This week’s goal will focus on menu planning and recipes. I find myself in a bit of a “rut” and am going to research some new recipes
