I should start posting these Sunday, as my week really starts Sunday.
Anyway, here are my goals:
1. Do the basic prep for dinner the night before.
2. Pack healthy lunches/snacks for myself and the kids the night before.
3. No binging
4. Eat salad or soup before dinner at least 4 nights
5. Go for at least a 30 minute walk at least 4 nights
6. Do the Gorilla app workout every day
Goal for the month:
Plan each week's dinner menu on Sunday and make sure I have the ingredients ready
If they sound familiar, that's because they're the same as last week...
Sunday: Mujadara (I added zucchini this time and it really messed up the flavors. Never again.)
Monday: Weekend leftovers -- beef stew and mashed potatoes, sauteed string beans
Tuesday: crockpot vegetarian chili ((Chef Meg's recipe, subbing kabocha for butternut squash (because it's cheaper, mainly))
Wednesday: Noodles and meat sauce for the kids and husband, leftover chickpea stew and rice for me.
Thursday: If veggie leftovers (mujadara, chili), then leftovers - if not, scrambled eggs
Friday: salmon, fish loaf, possibly sushi (never got around to making it last week)
Saturday: baked chicken schnitzel, asparagus, brown rice and veggies
I frequently find I make too much food and then skip a menu item later in the week for leftovers. That's okay with me -- saves time and effort.
