Life Will Go On

I'm not currently working on a challenge right now (pause for reaction), however; I still feel the need to post my work week dinner menu. After about a year of planning out my dinner menu each week during challenges, I just can't seem to shake the habit. Not to mention, it is essential for my grocery list to plan ahead as I only like to go grocery shopping once a week.

Work Week Dinner Menu:

Monday - Steak Salads
Tuesday - Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken w/ Sweet Potatoes and Green Beans
Wednesday - DiGorno Personal Pizza
Thursday - Leftover Frozen Enchilada Soup
Friday - Cheesy Beef and Veggie Pasta

Planning ahead has always been a part of my personality. Due to my most recent medical incident, however, I have found that I can't plan for everything. One of the most valuable lessons I have learned in the past few weeks is that life still goes on and things still get done without a to-do list. I tend to be a high anxiety person when it comes to planning things; events, day trips, etc. Lately, I have been trying to step back and give myself a break. (Repeat new motto: life will go on). In sharing this, I do not know exactly how this will effect my healthy lifestyle efforts. I guess my current attitude could be described as 'going back to the basics'. I do have a few mini goals in the back of my mind for the week ahead:

Mini Goals:

1. Drink 64 oz. of water each day
2. Purchase and begin taking prenatal vitamin daily
3. Pack lunch all week

I am looking forward to working on these mini goals and reporting back throughout the week. Everyone make it a great day!

  1. Good for you! Sometimes its good to let go of all the planning and realize that if it causes you to stress planning and living to a strict regimen then maybe its not worth it! I live my life by the seat of my pants and go with the punches! Its just who I am... just like planning is who you are. I hope you can let go a little bit to reduce your stress and to smell the roses... Sometimes your too busy 'scheduling' life events that you may forget to live the life you have right now! Enjoy every little step! Oh yeah, and btw... can you post the recipe for your Tuesday night meal with a pic??? Thanks!
