This meal plan will be a little shorter than normal. Not that my meal plans are super thorough anyways. I will add a few meals that I think could help anyone needing three more meals at the end.
How did this week go for me? Well, this week, I became ravenous. Even with the things I have been doing to bulk up E meals, I couldn't even hang with it on my S meals. I go out to eat with my mom every week almost. Usually I do great. I order a meat with veggies. I can say no to bread. Yesterday, I was starved. Plus I didn't know the shrimp would be deep fried. I ate it anyways. It was supposed to be the only cheat of the day. I was wrong. I scarfed my son's cheese sandwich. It was so good! I was still starving and got a cheese danish from Starbucks. I was beyond starving still. Pregnancy life, right? Then I went to the multicultural night and ate off plan. Normally in that situation, I would bring a salad and eat the meat options. So last night, my options would have been: taco beef, fajita peppers, sour cream, salsa, scrap off the toppings of the pizza, and that is about it from what I remember. If I thought of it, I would have an emergency wrap in my bag. I didn't though. Instead, I chose a bunch of my favorite bad carbs. Although I am not sure where a normally cooked tamale would land on THM. XO? This weekend, I hope to put a dent in what I ate yesterday.
Here is the meal plan for this week:
Breakfast: I think I am done with the blueberry bake. I think I may be doing a lot of the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins or the oatmeal to go muffins this week. I also plan to bake more oatmeal to go muffins for my trip out of town. If I don't have an E premade, my go to is an S meal . Like I say every week, make your lunches and breakfasts an easy go-to option.
Lunches: Leftovers or my easy E/S meals. Pizza sandwich with lots of veggies is a great easy E. Although as I type this, I feel like that FP 95 calories soup even though today I have pork chop leftovers. :p
Sales this week: Ground beef at Kroger. 1.99 a pound for a 3 lb chub. I have a 2 dollar coupon off produce and a 2 dollar coupon off meat 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. 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 (like my splenda coffee this afternoon).
Mommy's Meatloaf with veggies
Deconstructed stuffed peppers
S/Low carb or E option. I might just make it a XO for me
Slim Sloppy Joes
Trim Mac Salad
This weekend I will be at my grandparents. So I will be trying to keep things simple and on plan. A few of the ideas I have that will be simple dinners: cabb and saus (Sat) and three way chili using dreamfields (S). Most likely Friday and Monday will be eating out. S meals with salads/veggies. I plan to make a few great lunch box friendly snacks to snack on this weekend. I am craving bigger meals with no access to a blender. So things like beauty milks, frappas will not be possible for me this weekend. I will only be an hour away from Nashville and I would really love to visit the THM store but I don't want to make things stressful.
Things I am thinking of taking in a lunch bag: Cowboy cookie protein bites, happy bites, ultimate e bars, green peppers cut up in ziplock baggies, carrots in baggies, a salad that will most likely be dinner that night, prebagged boost juice, these probably off plan rice cakes I have, and maybe my preflavored protein powder.
If you would like 4 more days of meals, here are some ideas for you: cabb and saus, dirt-e rice, black bean quesadillas, and Lentil Soup. I already have a general idea over the spring break menu. I hope to post that Thursday or Friday morning.
Exercise wise, I plan to continue the Glow Body Prenatal program (week 21) and barre. I don't know if I will be able to exercise while I am out of town. It's not like at home where things are babyproofed. I will do my best. I could always take a barre amped or two and only do the thighs and seat.

I am not sure if my weigh in on Monday will be as positive as I hoped. I didn't weigh this morning but if I know my body enough, bad carbs stick to my body during pregnancy.
