It’s back to reality this week after being off work for 4 days. I did great sticking to my plan on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day but then totally overate the next two days after that. SIGH. I’m moving on and looking forward to a new week and a new plan!
You can download my full meal plan here, or view the details below.
Banana or Apple & String Cheese
Breakfast: (9:30-10:30am depending on hunger level)

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal (recipe coming soon) with fresh apple – 4 pp

Egg White Omelet with turkey sausage, cheddar cheese, and peppers with blackberries on the side – 6 pp
Cranberry Almond Instant Oatmeal with hard boiled egg whites on the side – 8 pp
Smoothie Pancakes & Bacon (weekend) – 7 pp
I still had breakfast sandwiches in the freezer that were made a couple weeks ago. The apple cinnamon & pumpkin pie oatmeals were made in advance and frozen. The instant oatmeal packets were made in advance. I’ll make the omelet and smoothie pancakes just before I eat.

I am going for convenience this week because I didn’t do much food prep over the weekend. The turkey tomato bisque & chili were both made in advance and frozen. I have side salads in mason jars left over from last week. The ham & swiss sandwich will be made on the weekend. Everything else is frozen.
Apple & String Cheese – 1 pp
Banana – 0 pp

Since we didn’t totally stick to our plan last week, some meals have been moved to this week. I’m trying to go simple this week too since we have another holiday in the mix and our schedules will be a little off.
The fish, couscous, and broccoli are all frozen. The cornbread muffins were made in advance and frozen. The grilled cheese, pizza, dog food, and zucchini pasta alfredo will be made just before we eat.
Popcorn – 3 pp
Skim Latte – 2 pp
WW Chocolate Caramel Mini Bar – 2 pp
Tropical Fruit – 0 pp
Fiber One Cinnamon Coffee Cake – 2 pp
I planned a variety of evening snacks this week. I need to allow myself to have treats without going overboard.
|Day||Points+ Used||Weekly Points+ Used|
My plan this week has me using 39 of my weekly points+ allowance. This will leave me 10 points for unplanned items or for Monday & Tuesday of next week. (My WW weekly allowance points run Wednesday through Tuesday.)
On my printable meal plan, you can see my full week along with the dinners for both me and my husband. My husband’s dinners/points are shown to demonstrate that you can make it work even if your other household members are not counting or have way more points that you.
