First of all: Happy Memorial Day.
You’ll have to forgive me for not being very consistent these last few weeks. I had an ovarian cyst rupture, and was in a lot of pain until last Wednesday. Then I felt great, and then Thursday came and I had ANOTHER cyst rupture! So, I’ve been forcing myself to relax and recover. It’s killing me, lol. The house is a mess, and my garden is begging me for some attention. My hubby has been awesome about taking over and taking care of things, but it’s been hard to keep up. I’ve got to keep taking it easy this week, but I’m seeing light at the end of the tunnel, and I am hoping that I can slowly start doing more. This life ain’t gonna live itself!!
Anyway, I’m also trying to be really good about my eating this week, just to aid in my recovery. I made a HUGE batch of “safe” soup that I can eat throughout the week, and I stocked up on fresh pineapple, spinach and broccoli so that I can have green smoothies each day. The menu plan I created is more for my family than for me, as I’ll be drinking smoothies and homemade chicken broth while eating taco soup.
Tuesday – Sloppy Joes, salad
Wednesday – Beans and Rice, leftover chicken, salad
Thursday – Crockpot Pork Ribs, fruit salad, carrots
Friday – Crunchy Chicken Bites, quinoa salad
Saturday – Leftovers and Smoothies
Sunday – Crepes, waffle iron hashbrowns, fruit salad/smoothies
My goals for this week are going to be easy peasy as well, because I am NOT going to overdo it and make myself sick again:
- Cub Scouts Pack meeting (I’m in charge of food)
- Go birthday shopping for my mom
- Plant more stuff in the garden
