Get Through It and Move On!

This week has been a rough week for me. I have been sick and tired, therefore I have been choosing the quickest most comforting meals for lunches and dinner this week. I am definitely going to be bringing back meal planning to my life. It's desperately needed.

Last night, I made lemon pepper chicken with a side of butter parsley pasta (my own creation; I have to get crafty when I choose not to grocery shop for a week) and green beans. My struggle with food this week may have also come from not having enough groceries in the house. So while I tried saving money, it definitely back fired on the nutrition front.

These things happen to the best of us. I am not counting on a loss on the scales this week, I am actually bracing myself for the opposite. The thing to remember in these times is that you can't give up! There will be days when you just don't feel good, motivated, etc. Get through it and move on!

And now, some very exciting things to look forward to:

Tonight, my husband and I have a date night. Tomorrow, I am meeting a few of my friends out for dinner. Sunday, I have a lunch date and will then be doing a photo session. Monday, I have the day off of work for MLK day!

My goal for the weekend is to eat as well as I can at the restaurants I will be visiting and enjoy my time with the people I am with. Then, on either Sunday or Monday, I will be grocery shopping because I am not doing a repeat of this week. I will have healthy snacks available in my house and healthy dinner plans scheduled. Next week is going to be a success!

Do you have any weekend plans that you are looking forward to?


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend! Tomorrow we are having a birthday party for my dad and little brother with a big chili dinner. It is supposed to be in 50's this weekend before plummeting again so I am definitely going to get in a walk or two with the furbabies!

  2. I thought I'd get to a visit or two from my oldest daughter but just found out she is busy all weekend, so I will probably just be staying at home chillin', doing chores, reading... I too have some grocery shopping to do so that will probably happen on Saturday since its suppose to be the warmest of the weekend before we get the plummet on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday... suppose to be our coldest weather in a long time!

  3. I hear you about the meal planning and grocery shopping. I need to do that too if I'm going to stay on track.

    Let's see...not too much this weekend but I have off Monday as well. I'm going home for a week or so soon so I'll need to get ready for all that.

    Have a good one!
