How’s It Going?
This week kicked my butt. Physically and mentally. It’s the start of fall semester at colleges and universities across the country, and almost everyone has questions about their financial aid. This time of year is the higher education equivalent of Black Friday and the day after Christmas.
Having said that – I was able to stick to the plan, even the day I gave in to my craving for a small bag of Doritos. I also managed to “adapt and overcome” our catered lunches all day this week to make them WW-friendly. Progress!!
Meal planning – what a lifesaver! I spend an hour or so each Sunday prepping everything I’ll need for the upcoming week. While it sounds incredibly tedious, it’s actually very relaxing and therapeutic. I put on some background music and just zone out with the knife and cutting board.
I got five walks in this week. Some were more energetic than others, but they’re done. We were signed up for a 5K tomorrow, but due to rising COVID cases in our area it was canceled. Instead we plan to do our own at the track
What Didn’t Work:
I gave in and ordered pizza last night: thin crust veggie with chicken. Even though I didn’t cook, I feel like we made a healthy (ish!) choice. We enjoyed it, tracked the points, and moved along.
The Plan for Next Week:
Things should start to settle down. It’s been a rollercoaster since the first of the month, and my workmates and I are definitely ready for some downtime.
Meal Plan – Wednesday – Tuesday:
- Garlic-Rosemary Chicken w/Creamy Chive Potatoes & Roast Broccoli
Shrimp Fried Rice w/Snow Peas & CarrotsEDIT – WE. HAD. PIZZA. 😛
- Beef & Bacon Hash w/Zucchini, Tomatoes, & Shredded Cheddar
- Baked Beef Ziti (WW Recipe)
- Out of Town
- Mustard-Glazed Salmon w/Corn, Snap Peas, & Tomatoes
- Sriracha-Butter Steak w/Crispy Potatoes & Green Beans
