Good morning friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I did not do any Black Friday shopping at a store. Anything I purchased, I did online. The only thing I purchased was groceries. I have to say that this week when NOTHING like I planned, meal wise. What I planned was:
Cheeseburger and Tot Casserole made with ground turkey;
Homemade Hamburger Helper mix.
Beans and Cornbread.
Pizza Bubble-Up Casserole.
We had two meals on Thanksgiving day and things sort of went downhill from there. My eating was seriously off. I don't think I had any fruits or veggies at all since Thursday. So, for the coming week, I have decided to do the 5 perfect day challenge for myself again for this week. I feel like this will help me get a handle on things and perhaps help me undo some of the horrible things I did to my body these past few days. My meal plan for the coming week looks much like the one from this week, quite honestly.
I have lima beans on cooking today. I will serve them with some cornbread. I need to pull one of my fryer chickens out of the freezer to thaw. I also have the following on my schedule for the week:
Pizza Bubble Up casserole (yes, I really am going to make it soon)
Homemade Hamburger Helper mix with turkey
Tostadas (I will probably ask my husband to make his no recipe Spanish Rice for the family)
Fryer Chicken with root vegetables.
Yesterday I feel like I accomplished a few things. I was inspired by a vlogger I followed who shared this on her channel. It is a breakfast of egg muffins, chicken and apple sausage and 1/2 cup of sweet potatoes (cooked in the air fryer). My sweet potatoes look a little overdone, but they tasted really good. The air fryer is still in that adjustment phase, but I am enjoying learning it. I also prepared myself and my husband a salad with green and red leaf lettuce, spinach, broccoli slaw, grape tomatoes, some roasted golden beets and 2 oz of canned chicken breasts.
I have doctor's appointments coming up soon and I definitely don't need to undo what I have done thus far before I go to the doctor. How are you planning for success this week?
