Menu Monday- 9/26

Well, it’s been another off week for me.  I’ve got to get better control of my time.  It was my husband’s 40th birthday last week and I didn’t walk Thursday or Friday because I wanted to spend some time with him while he was home.  My problem is, if I don’t do it in the morning it doesn’t happen Sad smile  I also ate way too much cake and drank way too much wine on his birthday LOL…  The next day I ate the majority of the remaining rice crispy base from his cake and by the evening I threw what was left AWAY!!!  Clearly, I can’t stay out of it.  So, I’m disappointed in myself for giving in to the sweets…  And I paid for it with a very upset stomach all night Saturday night too….  WHEN will I learn????  But, I am proud of myself for ultimately throwing it out instead of continuing on my bad cycle for another day….

The good news is that when I weighed in last week I had lost all 4.6 pounds I had gained the week before and another .4 for a total loss that week of 5 pounds!  Just goes to show when I’m really focused the plan DOES work..

So, here’s my plan to get back with the program this week:

  • Walk a minimum of 30 miles
  • Do some upper body strengthening exercise at least 2 times this week
  • Check off my good health guidelines at least 5 days
  • Drink at least 2 full water bottles each day
  • Make sure to eat enough protein
  • Continue to work on finding healthy breakfast options

Here’s my review of the breakfast foods I tried last week:

  • Two Bite Breakfast-  SOOO Yum!  I figured them to be about 4 points a piece depending on the type of bread and cheese…  I liked them so much I made them twice last week!!!
  • Bacon Egg Cups—On the list to try this week
  • Power Bars--  Made a version of them that didn’t include Grape Nuts, but just extra oats.  These were very filling and good.  I figured them at about 4 points a piece as well…  Will definitely make them again, probably this week
  • Blueberry Muffins—On the list for this week
  • Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole—On the menu to try this week again- didn’t get to it last week…

Here’s the menu:

Monday:  Rotisserie Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Asparagus (from last week)

Tuesday:  Chicken Sausage on the grill, mixed veggies

Wednesday:  Big kids at EYC, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, fruit for the babies

ThursdayChili to Warm You

Friday:   Macaroni and Cheese for the kids, Date night for me and the hubs

Saturday:  Chicken and Dumplings

Sunday:  Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole
