Meal and Exercise Plan 10/18/15 - 10/24/15

Yesterday, I shared the recap of my first week of the Big Bridesmaid Challenge (Part II). As I explained yesterday, I consider my first week in the challenge a success, not because I followed all of my plans perfectly, or even because of the number on the scale; rather, it was a success because I kept my goals in mind all week long, and I kept myself accountable!

In effort to keep myself accountable for the week ahead, below are my exercise and meal plans for each day this week!

Last week, I only worked out once, on Monday. Womp, womp. I'm going to keep my goal of working out 3 times for the week ahead!

I love to make hearty meals on the weekends! Yesterday, I made homemade chicken pot pie for dinner (I'll share the recipe, soon) which also gave me leftovers for lunch and my husband leftovers for dinner at class.

On Monday and Tuesday, I'm making myself dinners that are easily made "for one" since it will be just for me while Nick is at class.

I'll be saving (our favorite healthy go-to meal) stir fry's for when Nick is home for dinner and we'll be using leftover white chicken chili for Saturday's dinner.

Planning ahead like this takes a little bit of effort but I believe it really goes a long way in helping me reach my weight-loss goals. I am down 1.5 lbs. from last week, and I'm ready to lose another pound or more by the end of this week!

Readers, what is your exercise and meal plan for the week ahead?
