On Addition and preparation…….

Okay, so I had some great feedback and encouragement about the weight…..


I’m serious. I know…..like really KNOW that I am in fact losing inches. I put on a pair of pants today that I wore a month ago and they were tight….like muffin top tight. It was HAWT! And yes…I wore them anyway! How sad is that?!?

Anyway, I put them on this morning and……not only did I fit into them, but they were loose.

I have lost my measuring tape….I think the kids have taken it so I really have no idea what the actual measurement is now.

I just need to stay focused on my goal of being “Healthy” and not so focused on the skinny.

I have some thoughts to share on the whole skinny thing but I’ll save that for later. I had this revelation the other day…it was interesting……..

Anyway, I did make up my meal plan yesterday and then promptly ignored it…..or maybe I should say that I rearranged it.

Here is how I worked it on originally….

Monday: Pizza
(We never did do the pizza last week. We had some family come over for dinner and threw on some burgers instead)

Tuesday: Hard Shell Tortilla’s
We didn’t do this last week either….we ended up having a “scrounge for yourself ” night.

Wednesday: Soup, Salad, and Bisquits
I made some fresh Chicken soup yesterday and it smelled like Thanksgiving dinner. I made enough for 2 batches)

Thursday: Salmon, Rice & Veggies

Friday: Bar-B-Que Chicken & Potatoes

Saturday: THANKSGIVING DINNER with my Family

Sunday: Leftovers

That’s how I planned the week, but I never did make it out to the grocery store to pick up a few items that I needed and so the pizza didn’t happen last night. Instead, we ate one of the batches of soup. I am not sure if I’m going to go ahead and eat the second batch on Wednesday or if we’re going to swap and have the pizza on Wednesday.

I’ll wing it when tomorrow afternoon comes.

This is why I LOVE having a meal plan. I still have flexibility to change if needs be, but on days where I have no time…it is so immensely helpful. Not to mention so much nicer for the kids. Someone mentioned that their mom did this when they were kids and that they LOVED knowing what was coming.

I seriously hear the question, “What’s for dinner?” a bazillion times a day. Okay, maybe not a bazillion….but the kids do start asking even before they have eaten breakfast. Which….honestly…is SO FRUSTRATING! because….well, I haven’t had my coffee yet and just eat your breakfast and don’t ask stupid questions….. GAH!

So as long as I plan, and then remember to write it out on the family calendar, so that the kids can see….it not only helps with staying on top of the daily meals, but it eliminates SO MANY annoying questions.

And seriously….who likes annoying questions anyway, eh?
