Return to the real world with a meal plan
My two weeks of vacation are officially over. . .thank goodness! We really had a blast the first week with our friends and then the second week with our nieces, but I was ever so happy to get a chance to try to get my house in order yesterday before starting back on my weekly routine today. Of course, I already miss being near the water. So I listed these pretty Sailboat earrings in my shop.
Since we're both back home and no longer have the nieces, I can focus on tasks like re-stocking our pantry and fridge with items that are NOT Easter candy, doggie bags, sugary cereals, and fatty snacks. (Seriously, I feel like that's all we've eaten.) It will be tough to really get back on track with our healthier eating habits, but (now that I've seen what I look like in a bathing suit) I know it's a necessity! Here's what I have planned for the week.
Breakfasts: Smoothies, Cereal, Oatmeal/grits, Hashbrown baskets, Waffles (all with fruit)
Lunches: Soup w/grilled cheese, Cheese quesidillas, Simple sesame noodles, PB&J, Tuna Noodles, Turkey Sandwiches, Leftovers (all with fruit and/or veggies)
Grilled chicken w/Sweet potatoes & Caesar salad
Tofu parmigiana w/Roasted broccoli
Mexican hand pies (from freezer) w/Corn
Beef stroganoff w/Green beans
I'm linking up this Menu Plan Monday at I'm an Organizing Junkie.
I'm also hoping to get some exercise back into my routine, but we'll see how that goes. How do you motivate yourself to get moving? (I'm guessing ice cream's not your answer because it's usually mine. . .as well as the reason I got into the lack of shape I am in.)
