I am hoping you all had a good week. My week wasn't the greatest. I did well on eating healthy. I did get the munchies more this week, but I made sure that I munched on healthy food. On Friday night I went out with some friends and I ate salad from the salad bar, but I did up end eating two white rolls with my dinner. I was very proud of myself for staying away from the dessert bar, even when I saw this delicious oreo, chocolate mousse, whipped cream dessert that looked absolutely delicious!! I was strong and I reminded myself of my four week goal and walked right past that dessert. I even watched my friends indulge in that delicious dessert, and I didn't budge! Way to go me!!
Exercise wise, I did not do well at all. I only exercised on Monday morning. My exercise partner was sick the rest of the week, and my throat is still sore so I used that as an excuse not to exercise. On Tuesday and Wednesday I did play the game Just Dance on the Wii with my daughter and her friend for 30 min, so I did get in a little cardio there but not what I am used to.
Starting tomorrow, my husband and I are doing the Insanity workouts for the abs. I will let you know how that goes. I am a little afraid!
My menu for the next week is not really planned out this time. As I was trying to make my menu for next week nothing really sounded very good. So, sad to say, I don't have one to post for you all. These are my ideas that I have for dinners for the week: Chicken (3 oz) and brown rice (1/2 c) covered with Salsa (1/4 c.) with a side of steamed veggies; Chicken stir fry where I just use frozen stir fry veggies, chicken, and stir fry sauce and put it all over brown rice; chicken tacos made with whole wheat tortillas, mozz cheese (no more than 2 TB), tomatoes, lettuce, chicken, salsa, and fat free sour cream; Salmon Salad, which I posted as a meal in the first week with the recipe there; and the 2 bean chili, which I posted as a meal in the second week with a recipe there. I hope that helps you all out some. I sometimes get in funks where food doesn't sound good and I don't feel like making a menu because of it. But, I notice I eat better when I have a menu all planned out for the week. It helps me to stay focused and on track. If any of you have any meal plans or menus for the week feel free to post them. Its always nice to try new healthy recipes! I will post a workout plan for you if you are interested, to make up for my lack of a meal plan for the week! :)
Remember to check in with me tomorrow for your second week results! Can't wait to hear from all of you!
