Must Have Thermals for Summer Weight Loss

In Healthy Habits, Meal Planning by Tanya1 Comment

When I come across a product that can make weight loss easier, I have to share it with you! My blog isn’t about selling, but it is about helping. I really believe the thermals from Thirty-One Gifts can help us lose weight this summer! Being prepared is key to my success. When I am not prepared and I get hangry, I make horrible choices. It doesn’t matter how well I’ve been doing or how long …

Weekly Meal Plan ~ 06/29/15

In Weekly Meal Plans by Tanya1 Comment

I didn’t share a meal plan last week because I felt like they were getting repetitive.  It turns out that if I don’t post it, I procrastinate getting it done!  This week I had it done Sunday morning, but just didn’t get it posted on time.  I intended to post this yesterday on my lunch breach but things were hectic and I couldn’t get to it.  So here it is, a couple days late! I …

BREAKFAST: All of my breakfasts (except Saturday) were made in advance and already in the freezer.  I don’t have all the recipes posted yet, but …

This week I actually finished my meal plan BEFORE I did my grocery shopping.  Smart, huh?  Usually I have a general idea in my head of what I’m having but when I actually get my meal plan finalized, it seems like I’m always missing something!  That shouldn’t be an issue this week!

I was busy with meal prep on Sunday! I made 2 batches of spinach feta egg muffins, 12 breakfast sandwiches, 3 servings of pancakes, and 10 chicken stir fry kits all for the freezer. I also portioned out 18 servings of frozen berries & 10 servings of frozen mushrooms for future meals.  For dessert, I tried a recipe for a homemade Wendy’s frosty, but I wasn’t that impressed with it.  By the time I was done with …

I didn’t do any meal prep again this weekend except for throwing together my salad Sunday night.  I had plans to do a few things but didn’t get around to it.  I wasn’t feeling up to par Saturday and was too busy Sunday.  Luckily I have a well stocked freezer to work from!

After doing so much meal prep last weekend, it was great to take this weekend off.  I didn’t prep anything, and I’m still set for the week thanks to items in my freezer and a friend sharing some meals with me.  (I shared some with her the past couple weeks, so she’s returning the favor this week – yay!)

This weekend was grocery shopping and lots of Meal Prep.  Have I ever mentioned how much I hate chopping?  It’s so tedious standing in one spot doing such a repetitive task…I’m glad I don’t have to do that every day!  Anyway, I made some new overnight oatmeal recipes, tropical green smoothie kits, Italian pasta mason jar salads, fruit salad, snack packs, and more.  The beauty is that once it’s done, I don’t have to do …

I didn’t stick to my plan 100% last week, but it was still helpful to have it available!  It allows me to quickly and easily see how many points I have budgeted for each meal.  It’s also easier to swap meals around once they are planned because (in theory) I should already have everything on hand that’s on my weekly plan.

It feels so weird when I don’t have my meal plan done before Monday!  It might seem like more work to create the meal plan, but it makes every other day so much easier.  The past three nights I’ve had to stand in front of the fridge trying to figure out what to pack for my lunch and getting frustrated when I didn’t have one ingredient that I wanted.  Note to self: The meal plan …
