THM Meal Plan for 4/15-4/21

Hello!

It is another week. I have seen that there are all sorts of challenges in all the various THM groups around facebook. Are you in a challenge? I haven't done a workins this week. Probably not the day today. I am gonna do a 3-4 mile walk with WATP.

This week has gone well. I feel like I have been 90% on plan with hardly any cheats. I have done the bare minimum of my workouts. We have spent a lot of time outside but now, it's gonna rain for like a gazillion weeks.

This week has had a few bumps but I have worked through them! Yesterday, I had an e meal and tested my sugars. It was 122. It kind of freaks me out. So I will be more mindful of my sugars today/future. Really look at what the E meals are doing to my body during pregnant. It is hard. I am trying to control my weight. E meals seem to be king on that front. I don't know if S-Helpers are the key to my life or what. I have to get more data before I make my final determination. FYI my doc wants 2 hours after foods to be 120. It's not crazy over but it could be the beginning.

Shakshouka
This will be a crazy week. So I have 15 frozen sweet italian/spicey sausages in my freezer and ground pork. Husband hates anything that only has those two items. He says you cannot only have spaghetti with italian sausage. So my plan this week will be doing half the italian sausage with a mix of frozen ground beef or ground pork. It is what it is. We will see how much I screw it up this week!

Breakfasts: I don't talk about breakfasts in my daily meal plan. I really wake up and wait for what I want. Right now it is all about staying full 2-3 hours. currently, shakshouka brekkie is the thing for that! I have made it 3 times this week and my belly has been so happy. I add a ton of extra veggies and use canned diced tomatoes. I do eat 3 eggs. Sorry, Serene. If you have the membership, it is a video. I base my recipe on that but really I just wing it!

Lunches: My lunches tend to be leftovers. If not, I keep an idea of 3 meals I can make easy for my lunches: pizza sandwich with veggies/pizza on english muffin(e), egg drop soup(s), and ramen(s).

Kroger deals from the Grand Opening
Deals: there aren't much deals this week. Kroger might have grapes and strawberries on sale. But I am not sure how much of that was related to the re grand opening that was on Wednesday. 18 count of eggs are on sale at Kroger

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.

Here are the dinner plans for this week!

Monday:
S
Whoop Whoop soup, pg 149 THT

I got a good deal on purnell's sausage during the Kroger re grand opening. So I am using the HOT sausage to make Whoop whoop. This is one of my favorite soups.

Tuesday:
S
Spaghetti with half spicy sausage and half ground meat, using the THT recipe on 109. I might have it over zuchinni noodles. I haven't decided.

Okra is so good for baby, I figure this would be a great time to use this recipe!

Wednesday:
S/XO/E
Tootsie Bell Burrito, page 290 in THT. My meat source will be half ground beef/half ground pork.

Thursday:
E

Chili, I use my own personal recipe for this. But I will use whatever random leftovers of half meat that I have left. I will also maybe hack all these recipes.

Friday:
E
Bean chicken quesadillas, I love this simple recipes from Coers.

Saturday:
FP/E/S
FP Pork tenderloin, mushroom gravy, veggies, off plan sides for my non-THM family members. I will either keep this to an S for me or an E. Depends how I feel that day.

Sunday:
E
Lentil Soup, or leftovers

My goals this week is to exercise, stay on plan and to track my blood sugars better. See how the plan is working for me/my sugars/the scale. Try to stay on plan through the weekend! Every week I write this how I was rocking life and then the weekend hits me in the face!

 What are your goals?
