Meal Planning Week of 10/23

A few being recycled from last week that I didn't get around to making (since we ended up with more leftovers, as usual, but I still forget to plan them in correctly!) and a few "taste bud" changes when something just sounded better than what was on the list! Overall though this past week went pretty well, I tracked my food intake most days as best I could and am getting my 100 grams (or more) of protein in a day and doing well with getting enough fluids and eating fairly balanced overall. A little pre-planning does make a huge difference and the biggest thing I need to work on is making the effort EVERY evening to prepare my work breakfasts and lunches. One morning the puppies woke me up about an hour earlier than I usually get up but it ended up being a good thing, I was able to make myself a real breakfast (scrambled cheesy eggs, bacon and a whole grain english muffin with jam - yumm!) and pack up my lunch before showering and getting ready for work. Other days I was good and prepped at night, other days I just threw whatever in my bag the morning of and a couple times I ate out. Progress, not perfection! :)
