Meal Planning Monday, January 7th

Happy Monday friends!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  This past week was my first one using my new planner.  I feel so positive about it and I'm not using it to its full potential yet.  I am a little embarrassed to admit this, but we're all friends here, right?  I was keeping my "to do" list for meal planning in my head.  Seriously, it never occurred to me to write it down until I was watching Kim (PrepWhisperer) and she mentioned that she needed to check her list to see what's next and it was like a light when on.  Sometimes I surprise myself like that!  

What did we have for dinner last week? 

Monday: Papa John's Pizza;
Tuesday: Black Eyed Peas, Cabbage and ham;
Wednesday: Taco Bueno;
Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie;
Friday: Homemade Hamburger Stroganoff;
Saturday: Baked Potatoes (served with butter, sour cream, cheese, bacon bits)

Dinners for the coming week, in no particular order:

- Bean and Cheese tostadas;
- Spaghetti (I'll probably have spaghetti squash), chicken meatballs, zero point marinara and garlic bread or garlic biscuits;
- Crescent dogs and an unspecified side;
-Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and an unspecified veggie;
-Pizza Bubble Up casserole;
-Macaroni and Cheese.

Prepared garlic hummus that I got from Kim's YouTube channel.  I'll be sharing that recipe on Wednesday.  Chicken breasts to have with some salads and with some roasted veggies this week.  I boiled eggs to have this week for snack.  I also made bread for my kids for sandwiches this week.  

I checked in on Saturday for my weekly weigh in on the official scale.  I maintained this week.  I could be discouraged or frustrated, but I am going to focus on the things I know I did well this week.  I tracked.  I focused on moving more.  Also, I am feeling good about the coming week.  Meal planning is definitely going to help me get those blue dot days.  Hope everyone has a great day!

  1. I hate meal planning, but there is no arguing how helpful and beneficial it is. And once the hassle of planning is done, it makes the rest of the week much easier and streamlined.
