Yay for Friday!

This has been a good week.  I feel I've eaten well and not eaten as much.  I have not worked out and have decided to forgo my August exercise goal.  I'm just not feelin' it and I think that's OK.  Instead, I'm just going to train for my Mud Run in September as much as I can/want to and that will be that.

I have decided to accept the Primal Blueprint 30 Day Challenge.  I will try to come up with some kind of badge or sign or something to put on my blog for it.  It's not really my area of expertise but I'll do my best.  I'm going to spend the next couple weeks planning what we'll be eating next month.  I have a friend at work who's joining in the Challenge with me.  Any of you out there who are interested, feel free to join in also.  I'll be posting recipes, the plan...maybe come up with a handy dandy calendar to mark off each day that we do a completely primal day or something.  I'll try to get creative with it and make it so I can be held accountable and all that good stuff.

First week of school has gone really well for the girls so that's been good this week too.  They seem to be enjoying it which is even better.

Hubby is still waiting to hear about the 3 jobs he's applied/interviewed for.  One sounds VERY promising so still keeping our fingers crossed about that.  No big plans for the weekend.  Going out with a friend on Saturday to see Bad Teacher but otherwise it'll be pretty laid back.

Product Endorsement:  We bought a bunch of different kinds of Clif Mojo bars to try this week.  We specifically got them for the girls in case Hubby didn't have time to make them breakfast or something.  Well, the whole family has tried them and they are awesome!  All the flavors are very yummy and there's 8 g of protein in each one so when I need a snack, it's a pretty good one to turn to.  We've tried just about all the flavors and they all rock!  The nutritional information below is for the chocolate dipped ones but they're all pretty much the same as far as the calories, carbs and protein goes.  I highly recommend trying these and, no, I didn't get any free samples or anything to review them.  We just tried them and liked them.  I think they're all natural but 70% organic so that's pretty good all in all.  

So that's all I got.  Hopefully Monday's weigh in will reflect the better choices I've been making this week...even without the exercise.  And now for the return of your Friday Funny (you know you all missed it)!

I love the mojo bars! I think the one I used to buy was pb&j and it was delicious!

Love your Friday Funny, it made me snort laugh. :)

I think it's 100% okay not to focus on an actual exercise goal. Sometimes you just need a break from goals and such.

Best of luck to your husband in hearing word regarding the jobs and I thought personally though Bad Teacher was pretty funny (not for kids though :) ) Enjoy your weekend.

Can't wait to see what the Primal thing is about. And for the recipes! You gotta know I loves me some recipes.

Glad the girls have had a good week so far at school, I love that. :)

you gotta post details about what you're eating on this Primal thing. Its very popular with some guys in my office & I can see how it would mesh with a bandster lifestyle. Post your menus!
