Day 14: Week 2 Review

I didn't mean to miss two days over the weekend, but I was in West Virginia running a trail race! Actually, I spent most of the weekend driving to and from WV, one night camping, and less than an hour running, but it was worth it ~ race recap to come soon!

My plan was to write my weekend posts ahead of time, but if you know me, you are probably not surprised that didn't happen. I am not known as "Last Minute Liz" for nothing ~ I was preparing for my trip up until the moment we walked out the door, which of course was over an hour behind schedule! When we got home last night, all I wanted to do was crawl into my comfy, warm bed and get a good night's sleep.

So, here's how last week looked:

Monday
Breakfast: 2 egg muffins, coffee
Lunch: baked potato with onions & cottage cheese
Dinner: chicken wings, zucchini
Snacks: Trader Joe's tomato soup, Lara bar, TJ dark chocolate bars (2), sunflower seed butter, apples
Beverages: milk, orange juice

Tuesday
Breakfast: apple, cheese stick, coffee
Lunch: leftover chicken wings, celery w/cream cheese, Trader Joe's tomato soup
Dinner: scrambled eggs with cheese
Snacks: Justin's chocolate macadamia nut butter, TJ dark chocolate bars (2), sunflower seed butter, apple
Beverages: milk, orange juice 

Wednesday
Breakfast: coffee
Lunch: pumpkin soup, bacon
Dinner: garbanzo bean soup
Snacks: pumpkin spice latte

Thursday
Breakfast: coffee
Lunch: spaghetti squash with sauce, meatballs
Dinner: roast chicken with potatoes, carrots & onions
Snacks: gummy worms and peanut butter cup poached from the kids, apple, sunflower seed butter, olives
Beverages: milk, orange juice

Friday
Breakfast: coffee, leftover chicken & vegetables
Lunch: Lara bar, Clif Mojo bar (waiting forever for an oil change at Walmart)
Dinner: leftover roast vegetables, pumpkin soup
Snacks: olives, sunflower seed butter, apple
Beverages: milk

Saturday
Breakfast: pumpkin spice latte, Lara bar
Lunch: Bojangles sausage patty, french fries
Dinner: spaghetti with meat sauce, veggies (pre-race dinner included with registration)
Snack: hot chocolate 
(weighed myself in the morning ~ no change)

Sunday
Breakfast: yogurt with granola (served at TMI before race), coffee
Lunch: hamburger, potato salad, baked beans (served at TMI after race), coffee
Dinner: Wendy's chili (it was a long drive home)
Snacks: Lara bars (2) apple, Justin's chocolate macadamia nut butter
Beverages: milk, hot chocolate

Monday
Breakfast: fried eggs (2) and bacon, coffee (homemade!)
Lunch: Progresso clam chowder (today is was more about the budget than the Paleo)
Dinner: rice pasta with sauce, meatballs
Snacks: Lara bar, Justin's chocolate macadamia nut butter
Beverages: milk, hot chocolate

It turned out not to be the best week as far as sticking to the meal plan. I am still having trouble getting myself into the kitchen to cook ~ since I don't have the schedule of a 9-5 job any more, time often gets away from me and suddenly it's dinner time and I've got nothin'. I think I need to try taking one day a week to cook a few meals so they are ready to go. 

This week is going to be interesting ~ like I mentioned, the budget may trump the diet for a few days. I still have a freezer full of good meat to plan around, so we'll see what I come up with tomorrow!

  1. Hope you will get your goal. I am also trying to loose weight. But for it currently I am on juice fast.
