Meal Planning Monday

14 May

Here we are again!! This weeks meal plan and goals!

Monday – Vegetable Stir Fry

Tuesday – Pasta with tuna and vegetables (my own made up recipe!)

Wednesday – Spaghetti Bolognese – this was on the list last week but we didn’t have it, so have added it again as it is Molly’s favourite!

Thursday – Salmon with sweet potato mash and green beans (A Thinking Slimmer recipe)

Friday – Potato Wedges, sausages and salad (Haloumi cheese for me!)

If you have a meal plan why not link up over with Mrs M too!

My goals 

As you can see from my previous post about being positive and focussed, things are so far going really well!  I remembered to weigh myself last week and when I stepped onto the scales on Friday morning I had lost a whopping 8.5lbs in 6 days! I got on and off the scales so many times thinking they must have been wrong – but they were correct! This has totally given me another major boost!

So as far as my goals go for this week, I am going to be taking a different approach, I am not going to be weighing myself weekly from now on, Sandra from Thinking Slimmer has advised ‘I throw the scales away.’  So there will be no weekly weigh in from now on, I am going to concentrate on how my clothes feel and fit as my guide to my weight loss.

So goal number 1 is to not weigh myself which seems a bit strange coming from someone trying to loose weight  and I think it will be harder than i think to not obsess over the lbs, but I am going to give it a go!

Goal number 2 is to hunt out some new healthy recipes to include in my meal plan, I struggle with meals that can cater for us all, I am a vegetarian and the kids and my husband are all meat eaters, so it can be tough finding a balance that suits us all.

Goal number 3 is to up my running to 2 minutes at a time in the gym by the end of this week. Now I never expected running to be easy, but I really thought I would manage longer than a minute. It wasn’t to be though, so at the moment, I am up to 1 minute 30 seconds, then walking for a minute then back to running.  By the end of the week I aim to be running for 2 minutes walking for 1 minute.  I hope this makes sense, I know what I mean but writing in a way that makes sense doesn’t seem to be happening very easily!

So there it is, my meal plan and goals for this week! Have a great week everyone!

Dear stupid man in the red car,

There is NO need to cut me up.  You are not going to get where you are going any quicker, there was lots of traffic, it was busy, tends to happen around RUSH HOUR!  Apart from stressing me out, you nearly caused an accident, which would have been totally your fault because you acted like an idiot.  Please drive carefully in future to make sure no one gets hurt.


The pissed off lady you cut up this morning


To the lovely fitness instructor,

You boosted my confidence and made me believe I can do it.  Thank you for setting me such an awesome programme and for making me realise that people are not laughing at me when I am in the gym.

Soon to be thinner,


Dear house hunters,

I know we have only been on the market for a couple of weeks, BUT I now have it in my head that we will be moving. Therefore we have to move, about now would be good.  So please come and look at my house and more importantly buy it. Its lovely, I will be sad to leave it, but please come and buy it soon!

Impatient moi?? Never
