This week I have returned to class and my daughter will start tomorrow as a big 1st grader. While I set and stew and contemplate how she managed to turn 6 overnight, I am having to follow a tight schedule this week. Adding to my normal chaos is my quest to become healthier. Being healthy is a worthwhile goal, but lets face it--it can be very time consuming. Time consuming = stress in my already busy life. I have to be diligent with food prep and planning in order to keep things going and allow myself time to go to the gym every day. This is my meal plan for the week:
Boston butt roast (4 lbs for multiple meals)
carrots, onion and potatoes cooked with roast
large pot of green beans
Barbecue made from yesterday's roast
oven roasted new red-skinned potatoes with garlic
large green salad with homemade ranch dressing
bacon and tomato sandwiches (church night)
Grilling two pounds each of chicken breast and hamburgers
baked french fries
veggies and dip
Caesar salad with grilled chicken
Sensible meal out as we will be at Holiday World!!
Breakfast is usually either a yogurt parfait or oatmeal. Lunch for me is usually a large apple and a TBSP of peanut butter and a bag of 100 calorie popcorn.
