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! 

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!

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 also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

N-Hance Wood Refinishing:

So who has thought about getting their kitchen cabinets painted? Bathroom vanities perhaps? I HAVE! Some of you may remember in our previous house I painted (chalk painted) our kitchen cabinets and I swore to never do it again.  It was such hard work and they needed to be retouched not once but twice while we lived there.  When we moved into our current house I asked around for some professional recommendations for painting cabinetry and the company N-Hance got mentioned quite a few times.  While we haven't taken the plunge yet I can now say my husband and I are so excited! They use an ultraviolet light curing technology that leaves the c…

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…
