Menu for this Week

Last week's menu plan went really well. I also did well on my goals for the week. Goal 1: Make all lunches and dinners CORE. All but one of my lunches were CORE and all of my dinners were CORE. Goal 2: Exercise at least 6 times during the week. I exercised 5 times during the week.

I registered a 0.6 pound loss when I weighed in on Saturday morning. I think this loss would have been more had I not had spaghetti (whole wheat) and meatballs (lean ground turkey) on Friday night, something I did the week before as well. I'm not beating myself up about it at all; I'm very happy that I'm losing, but I am changing my meal plan around so I don't have pasta the night before I weigh in.

This week, I'm going to be having some of the meals that were on last week's list as we never got to them.

This Week's Plan
Monday: Eggplant Parmigiana, whole wheat noodles
Tuesday: Moroccan Slow-Cooker Stew
Wednesday: Italian-seasoned Chicken with veggies, polenta
Thursday: Broccoli-Shallot Frittata
Friday: Teriyaki Chicken w/ stir-fry veggies
Saturday: Dream Dinner!!! Yahoo!

This Week's Goals
1. Use Splenda in coffee/tea instead of sugar.
This goal seems difficult as I prefer using the natural product, sugar, over something artificial. Yet, Splenda is CORE and sugar is not.

2. Exercise at least 6 days during the week.
I'm hoping that I achieve this goal this week.

Planning for Next Week
Since I have a Dream Dinners session scheduled for Saturday, I don't think next week's dinners will be CORE. That doesn't really screw up what I do for lunch, but it will entail changes in John Dear's plans. I think that we will need to pack his lunch while eating Dream Dinners meals so that he doesn't blow through points by eating his regular lunch (a 5-point Caesar salad with chicken or steak).

UPDATE: John Dear went to weigh-in tonight and he has a lost a total of 4.8 lbs!!! JD is rocking that sheeeeeeeet!
