Year Two – Week Six

Spring has sprung (so they say), my broken arm is healed, and I am off to the races! Finally! This week I am going full on Goggins to get back to where I left off mid-January.

Since I received the good news on Thursday, I have been stepping up my workout plan. Nothing heroic yet, but steps in the right direction. Speaking of steps, I was out walking on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – over 24,000 steps (Nine Miles). That is about 24,000 more steps that I have taken outside since November when I came down with my brutal winter flu, which lasted until I ventured out and broke my arm. 24,000 steps is pretty impressive. 😏

I also, started the week out well nutritionally wise. I have our menu penciled in for the entire week – one nutritious meal after the other (at least supper wise).

  • Monday – Taco Salad
  • Tuesday – Stir Fry with rice
  • Wednesday – Chicken Alfredo, steamed broccoli, and Side Salad
  • Thursday – Chef Salad
  • Friday – Home made Pizza with Caesar Salad
  • Saturday – Barbecued pork ribs, baked potatoes, and Ramen/shredded cabbage salad

All home made! All include fresh vegetables! All delicious and nutritious! 🌞

Taco Salad…

This morning, I kicked off the day with a full two armed Zumba routine and a series of physiotherapy exercises to improve my range of motion for my left shoulder. This afternoon, I am heading outside with Molly for some sunshine and fresh (very fresh as in feels like -22C) air. And.. tonight I am getting strength training back in my schedule. That is my plan for this week – plus, with warmer temperatures expected Wednesday and my walking partner available Wednesday thru Sunday – there is a fair amount of Molly walking on the calendar for later in the week.

The rest of my days are filled with brushing Molly, cleaning house , laundry, dishes, and the like – all which is easier with two functional arms.

She was so little last summer!

That is my plan for this week. I am focused, locked in, healed, and ready to go!

Take care and have a great week! 🌞💞

  1. Thank you, Paul and Betty. I will be super excited if I make it through tonight’s workout. I always seem to hit a wall after supper but I am pretty determined to get back the entire routine.


  2. Yeah! Back to normal! Yeah! I also admire your weekly menu. I write out a simple list on scratch paper for the week too. I usually do 2-3 meals and the rest is leftovers. I also add a soup (this time of the year) and a weekly sandwich idea. Sunday nights is sandwich night at the Clampetts. It makes my life easier if I have my suppers/dinners planned out.

  3. I used to when I was alone with my 3 teens (and their 16 friends 🤦). It made it easier to do the bi-weekly shopping and get it right so I wouldn’t have to go back. Somewhere along the line, I got out of the habit. I should get back into doing it. Less take out and tv dinners would be a good thing!


  4. Amen to that. It does save money and I enjoy spending time thinking about what to serve and all the possibilities. I keep my lists and refer back to them when I completely run out of ideas. Like all writing, every once in a while I hit the wall.
