Labor Day Challenge - Week 4 - Sunday

Not a whole lot to day today. I've been reformatting my computer and gearing up to deep clean my house this week, so I'll probably be getting to the point each day. I have a ton of crap to do. Aside from cleaning the house, I start substitute teacher training tomorrow and my son has a dentist appointment 90 minutes away on Thursday. I'll be glad to hit the farmers market on the way home! I've been holding off because I need to scrub out my refrigerator.

I tried out a new recipe today. I found it in a booklet SeaPak (the seafood people) sent me. It's Dijon Dill Dressing, and it's very good:

1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 tsp dried dill
1 tbs lemon juice
3 tbs water

9:50 AM - scrambled eggs w/ onion, green pepper, cheese & salsa

12:45 PM - roasted chicken & spaghetti squash w/ dijon dill dressing

1:30 PM - black bean chocolate brownie cake

4:10 PM - black bean chocolate brownie cake

5:50 PM - lasagna & corn bread muffins; I made lasagna noodles from scratch (with dehydrated spinach) & ground turkey. The corn bread muffins were from scratch, too. It was a pain in the ass to put it all in my nutrition tracker, but I did it, and saved it as a recipe so I can make it again. It was our first attempt at lasagna noodles and it came okay (in terms of appearance). Overall, the dish was very good.

8:05 PM - black bean chocolate brownie cake w/ frozen banana

Four cups of coffee and 80 ounces of water.

I see that I'm not the only one having a rough time here but you are doing much better than me. I just tend to zone out and throw all of the rules out the window but I'm literally tired. I am getting my ass back in gear this week so be expecting to see more of me on your blog. :)

I have bad days but I think I'm holding it together well enough for maintenance. I'm getting ready to start P90X in a couple weeks so I'm getting all the bad-girl out of my system :p

Good luck with the P90X...I've heard some stories about that! Yikes! You'll do great though since you're in such good shape. I have no doubt that you'll end up kicking ass! :)

I'm hanging in here today. I'm starving and trying to avoid the kitchen and snacking right now. It's so hard to get back on track!
