Meal Planning Monday, March 4th

Happy cold Monday!  I am not a fan of the cold weather!  So we're going to be having some soup!  Well, at least Monday through Wednesday, we're having soup.  Then some warmer weather is supposed to hit.  I haven't fully decided what we are doing the rest of the week, but we really didn't follow the plan closely this week, so I may sub in some of the things that I planned last week.  I was down for the count the better part of the week with a kidney infection.  If you haven't had one, I pray you don't ever get one.  Given that, I have been pushing water a lot.  Since Tuesday, I know for sure, I've been getting 120 oz. of water or more each day.  Thankfully, my sweet husband was able to help with meals and we did some leftover patrol several times, which is just called LOP around here.

So, my basic meal plan is:

Beans and cornbread
Slow Cooker Quinoa Chicken Parmesan Soup
A variation of the 7 can soup.  
White Chicken Chili
Cheeseburger and Tot Casserole
Chicken Tikka Masala and rice
Possibly my Mom's Goulash, but I haven't decided for sure on that one.  I know my daughter loves it though! 

To be honest, after my difficult week and still not being over this infection, I opted not to go weigh in this week.  It just did not seem like it would be a wise choice and I was afraid it would backfire on me.  So I will focus on tracking and have decide I will strive for 5 perfect days this week.  I feel like it's definitely something I need to do for myself.  My perfect days will be staying in my blue dot range, hitting my step goal and hitting my water goals.  I know that doesn't sounds like much, but it will definitely be a step in the right direction.

  1. Sometimes I skip weigh in. If I just feel like nothing good will come of it, or it will make things worse, then there's no federal law that says you have to, right?
