Meal Planning (Part II)



After two weeks of the same meals I'd say a change in the menu sounds pretty good!  For two weeks (taking off on Sunday..okay and sort of of Saturday too) I successfully followed the previous meal plan and I'm happy to report back losing almost 4 lbs!  I also have to say that both my husband and I commented to each other how we love this meal "prep" planning because we are never hungry.  In between each meal you can always grab one of the snack options.  The other thing that I really became aware of over the past two weeks was portion control.  Adjusting our portions has helped tremendously and has helped even on our "cheat" days because I now see that most our portions were way too big!  How have you all been doing?? 

This weeks meals consist of four lunch/dinners and three snack options.

ENTREES: (These can be used as either a lunch or a dinner)




1. BLT
In each container I added a few pieces of romaine, four slices of tomato and four strips of bacon.  The only condiment you need to add (when you're going to eat) is the mayo. The lettuce acts as the bread for this particular low carb version of the BLT.


2. Broccoli & Shrimp 
I used one bag of steamed broccoli, one bag of Pasta Zero, one bag of shrimp and a packet of shrimp scampi seasoning.  After cooking everything together on the stove I added in a little olive oil.




3. Burritos 
You have heard me talk about the "Real Good" burritos from the grocery store before.  Each box contains two.  I bought myself the cheese and my husband the beef.  I cooked the burritos according to the directions then added one to each container.  I added 1/4 can of southwest corn, a lime slice and two pieces of chopped tomato. 
 




4. Tomato Mozzarella Spinach
I figured this would be a great lunch option.  I added the spinach to the bottom of the container, added sliced tomato and sliced mozzarella.  I chopped up some fresh basil and added on top.  When you are ready to eat this just drizzle some balsamic on top! 


SNACKS:
1. Once again I did the berry bowls with granola.  These are just too good to skip out on.
(Strawberry, rasberry, blackberry and one spoonful of granola)

2. Olives, mixed nuts, string cheese



3. Small bags of pork rinds.

4. Lunch meat from the deli. (This I didn't put in it's own bags but it's available to snack on. 

Sorry if this last post was confusing! I know a lot of you wanted this post up before grocery shopping this week!  You can always message me with any questions!

  1. Some had crisscrossing patterns that went proper to all 4 edges. 1xbet The patterns on these playing cards, as a consequence of the manufacturing processes, had been trimmed barely a unique way|in one other way} on prime and backside, leading to uneven margins of 1/32 of an inch or less. She spent round a thousand hours, over 4 years, coaching herself to acknowledge the minute variations on particular playing cards. Sun figured out how she might leverage these variations that had been virtually imperceptible and acceptable by trade requirements.

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!   To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white. 1. Drizzle 2. Sterling 3. Halation These three options are als

Weekend in Miami!

  Over the past weekend we drove down to Miami and spent the night at our favorite beach front hotel..Marenas Resort.  It was our anniversary weekend and wanted to go somewhere we could have fun with the whole family. This is now the second time we have taken the girls to this particular resort (which is pretty impressive because both my husband and I love trying new places.) This resort offers "condo style" rooms which is awesome when traveling with children, has a really good onsite restaurant and is located right on Sunny Isles Beach.  The standard suite has views of both the ocean and the harbor. Stunning views! They also do NOT charge extra for beach chairs and umbrellas which is almost unheard of now a days.  It's moderately priced for everything your getting in this location. These are the views off the patios and around the pool.  I just love Miami's water! Its such a beautiful color and reminds me of the Bahamas!  We spent
