{Meal Plan} Pinning and Planning Our Dinner Menu – Week of Nov. 6

It’s been a few weeks since I shared our family’s meal plan. Although I haven’t shared our meals, I’ve stayed on track with my meal plans. I survived Halloween, however, I ate enough Twix candy bars to nearly cripple my efforts. and even with all that candy and a birthday celebration, I still managed to lose weight and fit into an old pair of jeans. In fact, my jeans from winter are too big! How’s that for a NSV?! I proudly wore my old jeans to the  Fitz and the Tantrums concert at Jannus Live.

Nothing (not even Twix bars or birthday cake) taste as good as my old jeans feel.

While I still trying to managed my portions and meals, I have totally fallen off the MyFitnessPal journaling. I’ve fallen into bad habits like skipping meals again and drinking way too much. I know with the holidays coming, I need to refocus my energy to stay the course to avoid gaining weight during the holidays.

Even my workouts have taken a hit. My feel good but I’m just so overwhelmed with tasks at the moment and I know things will only get worse as the holidays approach. I half-jokingly said to my mom the other day, “I think I need to take up yoga during the holidays. I need to find center because I feel all over the place.”

I need some redirection and today that starts with weekly meal planning again. Here’s what on our menu this week.
