How are you this week? Sorry about the weird formatting on last week. I did it quickly on the iPad and it doesn't like me much!
How did my week out of town go? Well, I would say I was about 85% on plan for a pregnant lady. I felt like that was impressive. When I got home, I was on 205. I was up the day I left from bad fries. So it is what it is. While I was at my grandpa's, I decided to shop from his freezer. So I grabbed this large turkey breast and it has been defrosting for days. All the things I had planned changed when I saw his freezer. I found tenderloins for dreamy creamy lazone, breasts for chicken buffalo and this of course. Although as much as I planned using his freezer, things changed. We had a large lunch and I didn't cook that night. We are finally getting to the dreamy creamy lazone tonight. I will make it a crossover for my family members with brown rice from the instant pot.
Well, as all things go, we just switched tonight's dinner to the buffalo chicken. This is how things go in our house sometimes! Just got to go with the flow.
Breakfast this week: I am currently in an egg rut. Or I keep buying eggs on sale and need to use them up! This past two weeks I have done Kate's spinach eggs, great omcake and omelettes. If you need other egg ideas, try the eggalicious muffin cups. They are on page 329 in THT. They are great to run out the door if you are busy in the mornings. I used to make them when I was 20 on WW. Pepper hole eggs on page 332 are a great idea. Last week, as a second breakfast, I tried the boabab boost eggs. It might be a membership option. I am not sure. I haven't seen it in the book yet. Since I am pregnant, I am trying to test out the waters on XO meals for breakfast. Some days I have had regular potatoes (yay, food freedom!) or sweet potatoes.
If you want non egg ideas, try oatmeal, pint jar oats (great for on the go in the mornings!), and oatmeal to go cups. Cream of treat porridge is almost like cream of wheat.
Snacks: I really don't plan snacks. Like this week, I had a raging craving for cini-minis from THT. So currently, I am snacking on that. One day, my second breakfast/first snack, was E uncle sam's cereal and boabab boost eggs. Sometimes I have made big bowl of cinnamon oatmeal as a snack. Seriously, pregnancy can be ridiculous sometimes. I am not much of a shake girl. Or it takes me so long to get that good ice broken down. Remember, meal planning does not have to be fancy. Just get some things together in your fridge or shelves to make snacking an option. Like I always have prebought hardboiled eggs.
If you ever want to learn more about THM, the books are an absolute must to understand the entire program. I first checked the books out of the library and bought the Table book. I searched youtube for real testimonies on the plan. They own all the rights to these funny letters and sayings! I am absolutely not a THM coach. I am just a mom that wants to help others! I am absolutely not the best THMer and I have my moments of rebellion.
Sales this week: Save a Lot has a sale on pork blade steaks and pork butt roast. Sale on sausage at Kroger Friday through Sunday. Pregnant lady has to have some sausage!
Turkey with mushroom gravy
This would be a FP I think. So I might make it into an E for me.
Or....chili if you have no leftovers (Carb conscious)
Pork blade steaks with veggies
Egg roll in the Bowl/Leftovers for husband.
I usually make this into a low carb meal but I might do pure E
I have never followed a recipe for this. Usually just random things I googled and followed.
Shredded butt pork roast with veggies
Or...Lentil soup if you have no leftovers
Carb Conscious meal
Tootsie bell burritos from THT
This can be low carb or carb conscious.
My plans this week are to continue adding in more barre through the week, Glow Body PT program and more core work. Depending how this week works out, I will add in more E meals as I feel. I might still be recovering from spring break at this point meal wise. Plus this hunger thing is unreal at times. So I really have to take it day by day, meal by meal.
I hope this helps!
