Meal Planning Monday, August 12th

Happy Monday friends!  My family and I took a nice break to spend time together and enjoy some time away...just in time for our 10 year anniversary.  Yes, my sweet husband and I have been married for 10 years.  Today is definitely back to life, back to reality. 😪 Unfortunately, there are still bills that have to be paid so it's necessary to go back to work.  Thankfully, I enjoy my position and my co-workers so it won't be too much of a hardship.  This week, we're (the royal "we") trying to add in some more fish.  I am not a big fish person.  In past, I have really only eaten fried fish and I am truly not a fan of salmon, unless you are talking about salmon patties that my Mom used to make.  

To that end, I have a couple of recipes that I want to try: 20 Minute Lemon, Garlic, and Herb Baked Cod and Garlic Parmesan Flounder.  Likely these will be served with at least one veggie, perhaps broccoli or roasted green beans or maybe even some cauliflower, I've just not decided yet.

In addition, there will likely be a Fettuccine Alfredo where I will use the green bean fettuccine that I purchased at HomeGoods, at least for myself.  I also found a recipe for a Mexican Brown Rice Melt that I thought looked good.  The original recipe called for chicken and I wanted to make it meatless so I will leave it out.  There will likely be a salad night thrown in as well.  Likely Caesar, but I haven't decided yet. 

I've decided to do try the WENDIE plan that everyone has been talking about lately on several of my Facebook groups.  This will include some days that are higher than my daily points allowance on WW as well as a couple of days where I'm just under my points for the day.  I tweaked my ankle, but we purchased a new ankle brace so I'm hoping to get back to my walks this week as well.  Downside is that after some swimming last week, my FitBit Ionic died. I bought the extended warranty so I'm waiting on them to tell me what's next.  

Focus for the week, since I didn't post anything on Friday:

1. 90-120 oz of water each day. I have not done well while on vacation.
2. TRACK, Track, track everything.
3. Stay within my designated Points allowance for the day under the WENDIE plan.
4. MOVE, Move, move.


  1. Good luck with the new plan and adding in commode seafood into your daily diet!

  2. Those look like some great goals! I kinda gave up on setting goals like that because I am lazy haha. I should have just named my blog MrsLazy. I wonder if that dot com is available.... LOL

    1. It has been a struggle for me to get started (again), but I feel like I'm making some progress and putting it here helps keep me accountable.

      Should have known someone would have take it already!
