Monday: I had Bible study in the morning and then spent too long on a lunch date so I ran out of time to get to the store. Note to self: Shopping on a Monday is not a good mix. Instead of rushing through meal planning and then rushing through the store, I decided to get Chick-fil-a for the fam after piano practice and wait until to the next day to prepare. I thought I was choosing the healthy salad at Chick-fil-A. I did not. Maybe it's just me and the fact that I rarely go through the fast food lines anymore, but I got all flustered and in a hurry and I didn't take the time to choose what I really wanted! Lesson learned.
Tuesday: Tortellini soup
Wednesday: Daddy was still out of town so we had leftover soup and whatever else we could find.
Thursday: Good ole pork chops, peas and carrots, and this rice:
Friday: My sister and her family came in town so we cooked up a large batch of chicken fajita meat. I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream. But we still had the refried beans and rice! My total comfort food.
Saturday: Leftover fajita meat. It was such a blessing to have easy dinners this weekend so we could get a major project done. Our garage is cleaned out and organized and that makes me very happy.
Sunday: We spent the day with friends and ate lunch and dinner at their house. I enjoyed the food they had there but the best part was holding their brand new baby. Welcome to the world little Decker!
I would give myself a C on healthy and clean eating this past week. I drank my Shakeology every day except one so I know I got the good stuff. However, I really need to focus on better choices and planning for my other snacks. For lunch, instead of my quinoa salad, I simply toasted a piece of Ezekiel Bread and topped it with cucumber, grape tomatoes, kalamata olives and a little purple onion and feta cheese. Top it all with some balsamic vinegar for added extra flavor.
I finished up the Alpha phase (first month) of Focus T25 and now I'm on to the Beta phase. I'm REALLY enjoying the shorter workouts. They go by fast and you are moving fast throughout the whole thing. It's taking me a while to get used to not having any breaks but sometimes I just pause the video to catch my breath and start up again. I've found that if you wait too long, by the time you've caught your breath, they have moved on to something else. So I pause because I don't want to miss anything and I want to get the most out of the 25 minutes that I am working out.
What have you been eating lately that it simple and easy to get you through a challenging week?
