Having a few days off work has me completely off my schedule! Not that I’m complaining, but the weekday routine seems to help me stick to my plan better. I’m looking forward to a great week, regardless of what the scale says tomorrow!

BREAKFAST: I had a pancakes and sausage provided for me after my 5K on Memorial Day! Every other breakfast was made in advance and frozen!
LUNCH: The fajita salad was thrown together just before lunch because I had a couple peppers that I wanted to use. The green smoothie was made in advance and frozen. I’m hoping it will be thawed by lunch time! The chicken sausage was purchased pre-cooked, and the broccoli slaw “pasta” will be made just before lunch. The lasagna and meatloaf meals were all made in advance and frozen. The side salads were prepared over the weekend and stored in pint-size mason jars to keep them fresh.
DINNER: All of our meals will be cooked just before dinner, but there are lots of things prepped in advance to make dinners quick and easy. The haddock and bruschetta chicken were both purchased already frozen. We have burger patties, burger buns, Italian beef (for pizza), and pizza crust already in the freezer. The cornflake chicken was breaded and frozen in advance.
SNACKS: I always have a banana and an apple with string cheese for my snacks throughout the day. I couldn’t decide what to do for my evening snacks. I’m trying really hard to only have one small snack after dinner, but it is a real struggle for me. I planned a chocolate caramel bar from Weight Watchers as a treat. It’s about the size of a fun size candy bar, so I have to take really small bites!
|Day||Points+ Used||Weekly Points+ Used|
My plan this week has me using 11 of my weekly points+ allowance. This leaves me with 38 weekly points for last minute changes/additions/splurges and for use on Monday/Tuesday of next week. (My weekly points run Wednesday through Tuesday since I weigh in on Tuesday nights.) I usually cannot get through the week without using more of my weekly points, but we’ll see how it goes. I like being able to see that it is possible for me to stick to my daily points when I want to. This plan also doesn’t ensure that I get my healthy oils and dairy every day, so obviously those items would add points. I need to be more focused on that…but one challenge at a time.
Do you have a plan for this week? Remember that today is a holiDAY. Don’t let it become a week of splurges. What will you do this week to be successful?
