reflecting on last week
I’m really enjoying my meatless meals each week. I’m spending a bit less at the grocery store, and it’s forcing me to get creative with my vegetable consumption. You might have noticed that my vegetables are just kind of an after thought most of the time. I know I need them there, but I don’t do much with them other than grill or saute. I’m trying to be better about that.
Everything was delicious last week, but I just love that Shrimp and Penne in Pink Sauce. It’s so quick but tastes like something that has been cooking all day. I definitely want to add that one to my menu more often.
Goals for this week
Well, I did NOT hit my exercise goals for last week. I mistakenly thought that since it was Spring Break, I’d have all of this time to be disciplined. The truth is, I’m walking less if I’m not working (e.g. walking around a classroom, running around campus). I also found my week quickly booked up with plans to catch up with family and friends. Not a bad thing at all, but the gym took a back seat to lunches and happy hour. At least I had a fun week.
For real this time: this week, my goal is to make it to the gym at least twice and walk 10K steps every day. I WILL do it this time. I can’t come back here two weeks in a row without hitting my goals.
Here what’s on the menu:
Monday: Broccoli Cheese Soup (2 SP), grilled cheese (4 SP)
For the grilled cheese, I’ll use 2 slices of 1 SP bread (I get mine from a local baker, but you could use Nature’s Own) with 2 slices Jarlsberg Reduced Fat Swiss.
Tuesday: Chicken Lettuce Wraps (2 SP)
Wednesday: One-Pot Baked Ziti with Sausage (7 SP), side salad
Thursday: Leftovers Buffet
Friday: Cranberry Stuffing Topped Chicken (5 SP), grilled asparagus
