The past week went pretty well as far as staying on plan with food goes. I splurged on a piece of an awesome tasting King Cake on Wednesday (here around New Orleans we are gearing up for Mardi Gras) and yesterday I had a smokehouse hamburger from a restaurant. I still lost 2 pounds so it's all good ;)
For this upcoming week for exercise I have to pick up my running a bit. My husband and I'll be doing the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in New Orleans at the beginning of February. Honestly I have been in a running rut after my first half marathon in December. At the most I've been doing is 3 miles lately. It's time to go a bit longer a couple of times a week. Of course I'll be cross training by lifting weights too.
Ok so now my dinner menu:
Sunday - Slow cooked pot roast with veggies and mashed cauliflower....no recipe for the pot roast really but my mashed cauliflower is here...http://fromfattofitchick.blogspot.com/2013/01/my-mashed-cauliflower.html
Monday - Chicken Noodle Soup
Tuesday - Provencal Beef Daube (slow cooker)
Wednesday - Shrimp Stir Fry...no real recipe, I cook a pound of small shrimp, add half of a bag of stir fry veggies that I bought from Sam's with the sauce, add in a package of stir fry mushrooms you can buy at Walmart and ta-da!
Thursday - Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore
Friday - Crock Pot Chicken & Sausage Gumbo
Saturday - Grilling stuff....dunno what, my husband usually picks :) We will be having grilled veggies too
For breakfast I made some light english muffin, egg, cheese and Canadian bacon sandwiches for both my husband and I. For my kids, I made them biscuits with turkey breakfast sausage and cheese.
Lunch for me is either left overs or a protein and salad.
Snacks consist of my obsession of ambrosia apples, sliced veggies and grapes portioned in baggies so I can grab & go, light string cheese, air popped popcorn
I hope this gives you food ideas!
Oh and gotta begin the week with a great no nonsense quote. I know I don't have any real excuses to keep me pushing towards my goals.
