Weekly Meal Planning

Posted: October 16, 2011 in weekly meal plans

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again….the biggest key to diet/weight loss/weight maintenance success is PLANNING! Planning healthy meals and workouts ahead of time makes it much easier for me to visualize my goals and stick to my plan. 

Here’s a look at our dinners and workouts for the upcoming week.  
It’s going to be a tough one. I have 3 races to announce (3 4am wake-up calls and very early breakfasts) plus 2 dinners out, a family birthday party, and a much anticipated trip to Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival.  

Food & Wine 2010

This week it’s definitely about “maintenance” and eating as clean as I can when I can.  

Meals & Moves 10/16-10/23:
Sunday – Sunday Supper – Real Housewives of NJ style! haha! 
Turkey whole wheat lasagna with homemade sauce, salad, and appetizers of hummus and veggies.  <insert red wine too> 
Watch out Teresa this “Skinny-non-Italian” is Fabulicious too! ps- is it sooo wrong I want Teresa’s cookbook for Christmas???

Monday – Salad & Sprints – 15 minutes of HIIT sprints with a salad TBD. One of Kyle’s clients gave us a Pampered Chef salad book that I’m going to take a peek at for inspiration tomorrow.
Tuesday- lower body workout – Lean ground chicken meatballs with sun-dried tomatoes and roasted veggies
Wednesday – upper body workout – yoga with my friend Darcy – dinner out with her.  Kyle will have crock pot “chicken pot roast” that I’ll start in the am.
Thursday – 3 mile run – Mexican spaghetti squash from Meghann’s blog

Grandma is an October Baby!

Saturday – long run – family pot luck birthday dinner

What does your week look like?

Love and skinny Italian,

Carissa & Kyle

    I love planning meals for the week. I post it right on the fridge so it is super easy to refer to all week. Is it sad I feel accomplished knowing I have everything already taken care of? LOL
