Seafood Salad!

So excited!  So we found a market here called Fresh Market (I think Amy W's talked about it before).  Anyway...for my AZ friends, it's like a cross between Sprouts and Whole Foods.  They have 6 different seafood salads to choose from at like a little bar (sort of like you find the antipasto bars and stuff).  I picked 2 and tried my first one today for lunch.  It had HUGE shrimp in it and unlike what you find in AZ, you can tell it's fresh and mostly shrimp vs mayonnaise.  Very yummy.  Forgot to take a picture.. maybe next time.

The girls finished their first week of school on Friday.  In my opinion, it was a success.  My oldest is having some not so happy feelings about being the new girl and the whole move but she's making friends and doing well so far with the schoolwork.  I think she just needs some time.  My youngest has taken to it all quite well so it seems.

The weekend...good and bad.  Friday night, I had quite possibly my most ungraceful moment of my life and hurt my back.  I bruised it and am pretty sure I pulled something in the process.  Ugh...Been popping Aleve like candy all weekend.  We went to the beach Saturday for a few hours.  The water is freezing but my girls insist on getting in.  Who am I to tell them no?  (Their mother, you say?  Bah!) We finished unpacking all but 4 boxes over the weekend so hope to finish that up this week.  Yesterday we ran some errands, did some grocery shopping, found my new favorite little market mentioned above and took a nap.  Food was not on target.  *Sigh*  Am I the only one who struggles with the weekends?

I'm doing alright with it today though so hopefully that carries through out the rest of the week.  Hubby starts working 11 hour days today for the next month or so.  This will make it much easier to eat at home throughout the week.

How about you?  Is this week going to be a great week?  I think so!

Here's a Monday DEMotivation to get you started.

I totally get what you mean about weekends. I struggle all sorts of sideways on weekends! : )

Love the de-motivator!

Glad you are all adjusting! Weekends were made for going a little off plan!

Anna said...

Boo for your back issues! I'm struggling with a herniated disk thingy right now, myself. I know it's no fun. But so glad you're almost unpacked and the girls are adjusting!

Ouch! sorry about your back! And yes, weekends can be absolute hell. It can be hard to stay on track when those two days tend to be totally off the normal schedule. I notice when I'm working, my water intake is a snap. On the weekends, I have to constantly remind myself to drink enough! Just gotta keep persevering!! Sounds like everyone is settling in well - so glad to hear it!

Weekends are just not as organized as weedays for me. Easy to go off plan and I always seem to have a justification for its grocery shopping time so I usually don't have as many good choices to choose from. Dang girl its cold here I can't imagine jumping in the ocean!

But ... where is the description of the ungraceful moment? I don't see it! ;)

It must be nice to be so close to a beach ... and fresh seafood! Anytime we're on either coast, I go on a quest for fresh fish.

Hope your week turns out well.

Jen said...

so what did you do ungracefully??

Weekends are wierd for me.. for some reason, when I'm home, I don't eat as much as I do when I'm at work.. like I'll go all morning on the weekend and not eat a thing and not think twice about it but at work, i'm looking for food every hour it seems.. wierd!

Sounds like you guys are settling in, which I'm happy to hear!

I use my slow cooker all weekend...keeps me on track! Have a great week:)

Ronnie said...

Oh no! What happened?!

Also, I am the total opposite with weekends. I can be good all day and night when I'm not at work, but as soon as I sit down at my desk I'm searching for food. Boo. :(

Ouch, hope you feel better soon! Maybe some cold ocean water therapy is what you need?

FOUR BOXES LEFT? Dang lady, you are on a roll!

Sam said...

I struggle big time on the week ends! And I hope you haven't done too much damage to your back and you feel better soon, take care :o)
