Sunday are rough days for me.  I hate cleaning, so Christian and I divide things up this way:

Me: All cooking, meaning I have to make sure that he has stuff for breakfast and lunch on weekdays and make dinner each night.  I also empty the dishwasher, clean the cat box, feed and water the cats and dog, wash, dry, fold, and put away laundry, and partake in the Saturday morning cleaning hour (whatever I feel like doing).

Christian:  responsible for the dog, dishes, trash, cleaning the toilet, vacuuming, and basically just keeping the house in working order.

I generally don’t mind how we divided chores, except Sunday.  I feel like I spend all day cooking.  But, it also makes it so I have quick meals throughout the week, so I guess I should be happy.

Today I made 26 mini turkey meatloaves, 2 pounds of turkey taco meat, asparagus spears wrapped with bacon, and used the leftover asparagus to coat with olive oil, spices, and parmesan cheese and baked it for dinner.  I also put a jar of spaghetti sauce, canned tomatoes, frozen chicken and a whole spaghetti squash in a crock pot in the fridge.  I can just pull it out in the morning, and when we get home, bam.  Dinner.

It was nice because last week I made so many muffins and breakfast egg muffins, I didn’t have to make those this week!

My goal for the week is to use up food before it goes bad.  On that note, I need to find out if the head of cauliflower in the fridge is good, and then cook up the broccoli!

I didn’t get in a run today, but my body is SORE after the kick ass workouts the past two days.  I will plan on going for a 2 mile run tomorrow after work, outside if the temperature is good!  I only have 7.2 pounds to lose til goal!
