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!
