With the beginning of the year, I decided it was time to finally get my act together in order to look the best on my wedding day. With this, I decided to eat clean 95% of the time. So far, I’ve cheated twice: chocolate covered pretzels, and Ande’s mints.
One way to try and stick to my goals has been to track everything that I eat. Follow me on My Fitness Pal to keep me accountable My username is nt5125.
The second way to keep accountable: meal planning to the extreme. Here’s how this week looks:
I even broke dinners down further (the type A in me…)
The things in red were the things I needed to then take and put into our grocery list. Before that, though, here’s where I got our dinner inspiration:
Monday: Slow cooker pork and kale + corn
Tuesday: Burrito bowls
Wednesday: Vegetable lasagna
Thursday: Pizza stuffed sweet potatoes
Friday will be leftovers or last minute. I’m not too worried about that because I don’t have practice after school!
And then, I took all of the things in red and added them to our other needed goods. And then I divided everything but the section in the grocery store I would find them in, making it an ultra-quick trip to the store.
From there, I got to meal planning. I divvyed up fruits, sliced veggies, made up the lasagna, cooked all of the meats, and so on and so forth… meal number one was a success last night
Welp, that’s how I spent my Sunday! It is totally worth it now, though, since I can just grab and go!
How do you plan your meals for the week?
P.S. Stay warm!!! I hope it’s warm where you are…
