Meal Planning Monday, July 8th

Happy Monday friends!  Hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful weekend!  Overall, it was a good weekend for me.  I am a little disappointed that I didn't have a loss on the official scale, but I am not going to let myself get too upset about it.  Things that happen this week that might have contributed to not seeing a loss...I was put on Prednisone again this week and with the added workouts with the challenge, I think I may be retaining water.  Either way, I know the loss will come.  I am moving more, I'm eating better, so the loss will come.  Our meals are going to be "Italian" heavy this week, but hopefully we'll enjoy them all. 

1. Eggplant Parmigiana and salad;
2. Fettuccine Alfredo (I'll have this with zoodles or spaghetti squash), likely with salad and garlic bread;
3. Bean Burritos;
4. Veggie Plates with biscuits;
5. Burgers or hot dogs.

I got some family time in on Saturday and will likely be heading north again this coming Saturday.  I'll be eating out with family and friends, then I suspect.  Lunches, likely chicken Caesar wraps or chicken Caesar salads.  Breakfasts will be poached eggs and 1 piece of toast and my recent breakfast smoothie bowls.  It's a way for me to get in collagen peptides in and it is tasty and filling.  I got blue dots 6 days out of 7.  While I could be disappointed that I didn't get a blue dot on Sunday, I am not.  I got a workout in and made the choices based on what I wanted most.  It is really a bit freeing when you know you can have what you want, but that you are tracking everything.  Hope everyone has a great day! 


  1. The prednisone alone would probably mess up your weight! A few months back I gained 7 pounds overnight.....because I started taking muscle relaxers and RX strength Aleeve. Infuriating.....I hoped they were the culprit, but I wasn’t sure until I stopped taking them and lost that 7 pounds in a day!
