Menu Monday 11/28


Ok, so apparently the business of the holiday season has the ability to throw me off track in just about EVERY area of my life!  Sad smile  I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging, finding time to get in front of the computer for more than a minute at a time has been a challenge. 

Anywho- last week on WW I lost .8 pounds, but I’m still up from my lowest weight…  My plan, so to speak for the holiday season is to stay as focused as possible on days/weeks that aren’t filled with extracurricular activities and food, and enjoy the days that are in moderation.    I’d like to say I did a good job of that last week, but I didn’t do the best…. I wasn’t completely without abandon, I allowed myself ONE piece of pumpkin pie with the crust, and the other 2 or 3 (can’t remember) I didn’t eat the crust.  I’m speaking about the whole weekend, not just Thanksgiving LOL…  So, while I didn’t journal this past week at all, and I’ll most likely show a gain today, I still feel like that was a non-scale victory!

This week I’m journaling EVERYTHING.  I’m also going to have some fruits and vegetables that aren’t covered in sugar or oil.  Crazy.  I know.  And, I’m committing to 5 workouts this week.

It is time to get back to real life….. until the next string of holidays Winking smile

Monday:  I’m going to give Turkey and Dumplings a go…  Based on my Chicken and Dumplings recipe

Tuesday:  “Cheap but good” Burritos

Wednesday:  Snack Dinner (Kids and hubby at EYC)

Thursday:  Kids eat Pizza, Hubby and I for a Date night Winking smile

Friday:  Burgers, Sweet Potato Fries, Pea Salad

Saturday:  Chicken with Scallion Sauce, Cauliflower Cheese Soup 

Sunday:  Parade of Lights- get to watch my hubby in action Smile  We’ll eat out so we get a good spot!

Have a great week!
