Meal Planning Monday, July 22nd

Happy Monday friends!  I feel a little bit like a kid in a candy store this week with my daughter gone.  I'm not trying to come up with meatless meals that we can have all week.  With that in mind, the menu for this week may change without notice.  The plan thus far:

- Hamburgers and fries/tater tots
- Chicken Fajitas/refried beans and rice (not sure if this will be cauliflower rice or brown rice)
- Hamburger Stroganoff/salad
- Spaghetti with zero point marinara, chicken meatballs, salad and garlic bread
- Breakfast for dinner

The end of the week had me a little out of sorts.  I had my appointment with the medical company delivering my CPAP machine.  I started on Thursday night and I can tell you it's a bit of an adjustment as I've never really slept with one before.  This year I am determined to take care of me and this is all part of it.  Also, because of my tiredness and back pain, I didn't stick very well with the challenge this week.  I'm getting back to it this week though.  I already talked to DH about us getting up and walking in the a.m.  I did lose 1.6 pounds officially this week, but still a couple of pounds away from my more recent low of 176.  I'll get there, sooner than later, I hope, but one step at a time.  I am also thinking that I may add in some yoga at night to help me relax.

Meals for last week, some of which were not great, we had:

Monday - Cauliflower Tikka Masala and Naan with some Basmati Rice and peas.
Tuesday: Veggie plates
Wednesday: Subway sandwich
Thursday: Chinese take out - I had fried rice, but there were some vegetarian options that my DH and daughter enjoyed.
Friday: I had some tortilla chips.  I came home not feeling well, so it was a fend for yourself night.
Saturday: Mexican at my favorite hometown restaurant.  It was not as good as it normally is.
Sunday: Fend for yourself night.

Looking forward to a good week.  I may have to stick with some lower point lunch options, but I think I can manage! Hope you have a fantastic beginning to your week!


  1. Congrats on the 1.6 pounds! Don’t look at what you wanted to lose. Don’t look at your previous low. Just congratulate yourself for losing 1.6!!! That’s an awesome loss!!!
