I have decided to rejoin weight watchers after about ten years, thanks to Carlin. She truly inspired me. I love myself and my body, but want to be healthy and in shape for Dino. I want to be in control of my food and stop feeling so sick every time I eat.

After only two weeks, I noticed a big change in my habits and the way I feel. All my digestive issues seem to have vanished. By changing what I eat I have changed my life. Plus I have lost 7.8 pounds so far!!!!! In addition to eating healthier and exercising I (and Dino) have…

  • stopped eating any canned or bottled sauce, opting for fresh tomatoes
  • stopped consuming anything with artificial sweeteners
  • stopped eating low fat, fat free, or sugar free products…only natural foods. If I must buy processed it’s pastas, soups, rice mixes, or pasta mixes.

Place shredded cheese, shredded chicken, and spinach in wrap on the heated cast iron skillet. Fold wrap, heat on one side, flip, and heat on other side.

Mommy’s Tuna Plates:

  • one can of tuna
  • sliced apple
  • few slices of colby cheese
  • sliced cucumber
  • sliced grape tomatoes
  • spicy mustard
  • crackers

Place sliced apples on plate. Mix tuna with spicy mustard, tomatoes, and cucumbers and lay over apples. Add a few crackers and you’re good to go.

LUNCHES

I also started planning lunches and making them healthier as well. I went back to using EasyLunchBoxes since you can pack a great lunch with snacks all in one container. I know Dino loves his new lunch containers and enjoys helping me make lunch for the next day. He has actually asked for homemade lunches instead of ordering pizza or chicken tenders. That makes me smile…what a healthy boy.

In my lunch bag I can only have one container, so I pack a sliced, fresh fruit and a granola bar. I don’t eat all the items in my lunch container, I save some for morning or afternoon snacks depending on how early or late my lunch is.

Our Meal Plan March 2nd-8th — 5 Comments

  1. I love your meal planning as you know and I seriously am so proud of you for readjusting your eating and diet. Huge congrats on the weight lose and I also need to watch my weight, because I totally gained over the winter and spring is coming and not going to fit into my clothes. Truly bad and am so going to have to diet and work out more a bit here now.

    • (HUGS) Thanks Janine!!!! 🙂 I know this winter really sucked, too much snow and now it;s all melting and everything is too muddy. I wanted to play ball with Anthony and couldn’t risk it with all the nasty mud…sighs.

  2. Looks like a great meal plan for the week! I usually plan mine on Sunday nights but the last couple of weeks, I have been very lax. Of course we are paying for it during the week…I need to get back on the ball!

  3. You are amazing to have all the meals organized so well! I can relate to your little guy not sleeping in- my kids would not either. Thanks for a terrific site! Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

    • thanks babe, I am trying…it’s hard work…but I really am trying to save money and not waste food. OMG…just once I want to sleep in, but hten I would worry why he’s sleeping so late, LOLOLOL

Would love to read your thoughts
