Sunday night again?! Sigh.
So, my week last week started off great with lots of healthy meals, a good workout and an awesome ass kicking yoga session on Tuesday night. Then I ate some incarnation of pizza for dinner the following 3 nights. I feel this to be excessive but at least it was all healthier kinds with thin crust or flatbread…right?
Wednesday Jeff and I met friends out for dinner where there were not a lot of healthy options, Thursday I had my very first fitting for my wedding dress so my mom and I wound up grabbing pizzas on our way back to my house. Friday, I admit the last thing I ever wanted was pizza, however there was no food in the house other than wheat pitas, goat cheese and a tomato so I improvised.
It was meh but it got the job done.
Lunches and breakfasts definitely made up for all that, thankfully. I was very disciplined and brought my usual yogurts with fruit and granola or ate the last of the steel cut oats I made last Sunday for breakfasts. Lunches were sadly lacking in leafy greens (except for 1) but still heavy on the veggies, healthy fats (hummus/goat cheese) and fruit.
Here are some examples:
This week is going to be busy again toward the end of the week so my goal is to make the first part as productive and clean eating as possible. I tried to keep this in mind while meal planning and grocery shopping today.
I ended up with a ton of fruit. I seriously hope Jeff plans to help me eat all this because I would hate to see it go to waste. I may have to get creative but hey, I’ll take the challenge :)
Cantaloupe, Mango, Grapes, Blueberries and Strawbs. That is a lot of fruit. Isn’t it so pretty though? I haven’t had grapes in ages so I am looking forward to those this week.
Blackened Tofu with Quinoa Edamame and Corn Salad
Weeknight Chili (aka Ground Turkey, Black Beans, Tomatoes, Corn all cooked up in a skillet)
Chicken with Roasted Red Peppers and Feta over Spinach
Back up: BBQ Chicken Pizza?
These are definitely subject to change depending on my mood but it’s what I have on hand after my shopping trip today. I also always keep some dough in the freezer for last minute dinners at home.
Thurs: Off – Jeff’s Birthday Dinner with his Fam
Fri: Off – Wedding Tasting!
Sat: Hoping to get in a run or the gym in the morning.
Again, this is a tentative schedule but I want to do my best to stick to it! This week was WEAK. Above shows potentially 4 days of exercise which would be awesome to get it all in. Wish me luck!!
