HELLLLOOO!!! Yes, I have been MIA for a looong time. I have good reasons. First, I’ve been mommin’ it hard with my two girls and soaking in this baby stage! Second, I have been doing a exercise program for the past 74 days and using the accompanying meal plan that goes with it. I want to maximize my results in this program, so my meals have not been anything exciting or to write home about. But I have 6 more days left, and this week my nutrition is going to be on point. I can’t wait to see and share my results.
But, because my oldest gets picked up from school and spends the afternoon with her grandparents, and my youngest is down for a nap, let’s talk about what I have on our menu for dinner this week. It’s nothing spectacular, but I had a friend tell me she missed my Meal Plan Mondays, so, here you go…
I won’t bore you with my breakfasts, lunches, and snacks because they are boring and predictable as I navigate through this ‘timed nutrition’ that I am doing. And this last week of my workout program is called “Peak Week” and the nutrition is seriously tightened up and dialed in. I mean, there are days called ‘deplete days’. So, yeah. But, my family can’t eat my way for dinners so I’ll plan for them and adjust for me.
Monday: Fixate Meatloaf, sweet potatoes and salad. What’s fixate? It’s the cooking show that comes with my membership for my workouts. I seriously have not had a bad recipe from there. Even my 5 year old approves.
Tuesday: Our favorite flank steak with garlic bread and grilled artichokes. My daughter will seriously eat 3 servings of this steak. I’ll also have the chimichurri sauce on the side. If you haven’t made this stuff, do it now. It’s so delicious.
Wednesday: Grilled Pizzas
Thursday: Szechuan ground turkey with green beans
Friday: Mushroom Chicken, brown rice and salad
Saturday: Hubby cooks–it’s his new thing. He has been cooking on Saturdays for a few weeks now. He wants to get better at grilling and making us HEALTHY and CLEAN meals. So far, each one has been delicious.
Sunday: Family dinner. It’s my parents week to host and I am looking forward to it. I will finish up my exercise program that morning, so I will be ready for some yummy food!
