This is my first attempt at meal planning! I’ve been inspired to do this by some of my Rhode Island blogging buddies, Megan, Brenda and Jessica. I’m hoping it will get rid of some of the stress that always seems to crop up around dinnertime when I have nothing to cook. Admittedly, I’m not terribly domestic, but whenever I do have a meal ready for Brian when he comes home from work, he is so happy and appreciative, and I want to make that happen more often.
Breakfasts will either be Personal sized baked oatmeal or an Oatmeal smoothie. Lunch will be leftovers from the previous night’s dinner or a Kashi frozen entree. Snacks will be fruit or hard-boiled eggs. Dessert will be banana “ice cream”. Oh, and in addition to the main courses below, I’m planning on serving salad with dinner each night, too.
I’ve already done all my food shopping for these meals (can’t believe I just typed that!), cleaned out the fridge (that, either) and I’m ready for the week!
Tuesday: Turkey chili and corn bread
Thursday: Leftover chili (since I’ve made it before, I know we have a lot left over; plus, this is Brian’s night to run with our running buddies so he will be eating at a restaurant after the run)
Friday: We usually go out to eat with my parents, so this will be a dining-out night
I mentioned in my previous post that I’m getting back on the exercise wagon, too. I did go to yoga today, and here’s my workout plan for the rest of the week:
Monday: Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred on Gaiam TV
Tuesday: 30 minutes on the bike, yoga
Wednesday: Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred on Gaiam TV, yoga
Thursday: 30 minutes on the bike, yoga
Friday: swimming, Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred on Gaiam TV
Do you have a meal and exercise plan for the week?
