Meal Planning for the Week

During the fall session of Fit4Mom’s Body Back, the instructor often asked us to post our weekly meal plans to the group’s Facebook page on Sundays. This forced me to think about what I would cook and find (or remember) easy meals I could make. I even dusted off the slow cooker.

The session ended, and Fit4Mom offered a holiday mini-session of Body Back that started on Tuesday. The program is basically the same, but there are no assessments and no weighing in each week. As much as that last part makes me want to cheer, I completely ignored everything I had been doing the past two months and didn’t bother to meal plan or even grocery shop this past week, which of course, resulted in eating out several times.

I can do better than this, so today I forced myself to sit down, do some meal planning, and go on a massive grocery trip. Here’s my plan for the week:
