I have to admit, I have not been doing a great job the last couple of weeks. So, I am re-assessing and to try and stay as much on track as possible, a couple of allowances have been added. This is to ensure I am keeping to the right food options, at least 80-90% of the time (that’s the goal anyway right :-), allowances are denoted with the ^).
I have also added my exercise commitment for the week.
This week was a challenge that’s for sure. We started the week with my son having strep throat and then just when we thought we had that kicked; the pipes burst in our master upstairs bathroom leaving our kitchen ceiling with significant damage.
We made it through, waiting for the workers to come back Monday and put our house back to normal. In the meantime, this is our meal plan for the week:
Oatmeal with Banana and Almond butter
Fruit Salad with Flax seed
Quinoa Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce
Whole Grain Cereal with Soy
Pizza (using FlatOut Bread instead of Whole Wheat Pita)
Oatmeal with Grated Apple and Sultanas (Golden Raisins)
I would love to know what others are doing to eat well, or what your family is trying out, what life style challenges have you undertaken. Do you have healthy recipes to share? To make it easier to share I am starting this weekly blog hop (see below).
This week, I was much better at sticking with the meal plan. I made a couple of meals in the slow cooker which helped out a lot. The slow-cooker dal was very tasty….recipe to come soon. I am still struggling with the whole breakfast thing; so this week I am focussing on going to bed at 10:30pm and getting up 30 mins early to make breakfast.
