Make-ahead Meal Plan & Weekly Weigh-in

Make-ahead Meal Plan & Weekly Weigh In 1/17/2018

Hey there! I hope you’re having a great week. Sorry my meal plan is a few days late. My goal is to get my weekly meal plan up on Sunday or Monday but that’s been quite a struggle. After I’m done prepping foods and getting my life in order for the week I’m out of steam to type. Anyway, I going to work really hard to make it a priority because I think it’d be helpful for you and me to have my weekly meal plan up no later than Monday morning.

Okay, enough with my excuses – let’s get to business. First up, my weekly weigh in.

Here are my stats:

Starting weight (October 2010): 177 lbs

Final goal weight: 135 lbs

First goal weight: 145 lbs

Last week’s weight: 153 lbs

Current weight: 153 lbs

As you can see my weight hasn’t changed. Last week I got in 5 solid days of exercise. By the end of each workout I was a sweaty mess so I feel really good about exercise. I did good with keeping my calories in check until we got to the weekend. UGH! Darn homemade pizza gets me every time. Moving forward I need to be much more intentional Friday – Sunday because I can’t undo all my work during the week.

Also, I need to drink more water because I think the scale this week included some water weight. This past week I ate eggs for breakfast instead of drinking my smoothie. My goal is drink a daily green smoothie but sometimes I’m just not in the mood.  Anyway, I need to make sure I’m getting in plenty of water on those days.

Even though I slipped up a little with food this week, and the scale didn’t budge, I still felt great. All the exercise gave me tons of energy and focus. Also, my clothes fit good. My legs and arms are getting toned and dare I say my stomach is starting to go down. Well that’s if I keep carbs under control. During the week I enjoyed Paleo meals from Sun Basket (get $35 off your first week here) and I didn’t feel bloated at all. Friday night, after pizza, I was bloated, gross, and it felt like it took 2 days to recover. I need to listen to my body and keep the white carbs to minimum.

Moving forward. This week I’m going to enjoy 3 more dinners from Sun Basket. I really like their Paleo plan. The dinners are tasty and come together relatively quick. Last week I made them ahead of time and kept in the fridge.

You can check out my Sun Basket Review for more information on the meal delivery service. I also did reviews on Hello Fresh and Home Chef is you’re looking for other options.

Sun Basket delivers my meals on Monday so I haven’t had time to prepare the meals I received yet. My plan is push through and get them made tonight.Wish me luck! In the future, I ask Sun Basket to send my meals on Fridays so I have time to prep ahead.

Here’s my full meal plan for this week.
