I’m trying I tell you! It’s been hard for me to wrap my brain back around getting into shape and eating well. I’m not sure why I always jump back off the get healthy bandwagon, but I do it over and over and over again. So here I am, still trying to find my way back onto the wagon.
I started a new fitness adventure. Our church has a weekly group where we are all preparing to run a 5k. I just walked/jogged my first 5k in April this year, but this time I’m going to improve my pace and endurance. I actually hate running, but I find that if I am calculating my mileage with the Pacer App, I will run a little bit to get it over with quicker. Whatever works, right? Regardless, I’m getting in the habit of regular exercise once again.
I went shopping for my next Crockpot Freezer meals plan that I’m developing. Do you want to know what’s on it? It’s Low Carb! That means I won’t have to think about what not to eat at dinner time, because I’ll already have it all figured out. I’m attempting to try Trim Healthy Mama (THM) again. I think I understand it finally, but know it will take some practice to make sure I have it down correctly. What I like about Trim Healthy Mama, is that you can have dessert. You may have to make it yourself and alter your ingredients to something a little healthier, but knowing you can have dessert makes it a little more bearable.
So, on this week’s menu, I’ll be making:
- Round Steak Casserole (my recipe calls for potatoes, but I’ll be substituting brown rice which is aloud on THM)
- Chicken Cacciatore – Served over raw Zucchini noodles
- Herbed Turkey Breast
- Philly Cheese Chicken – Served in a bowl over lettuce (I think) or on a low carb pita
- Stuffed Peppers
- Chille Relleno Casserole
And now, you are wondering where the recipes are, right? Well….I’m working on that. I’m altering several recipes, so once I get them put together and try them out, I’ll be sure to post them here. In the mean time, if you can’t wait until then, I bet you could do a google search and find something similar that would work for you. I’m going to be doubling my recipes so that I have 2 week’s worth of meals done. I’ve been off of the menu planning train and need to jump back on that one, too. There’s no time like back to school season to start going with some needed consistency again, right?
I’m going to continue putting together Trim Healthy Mama meal plans, or at least low carb ones. If you have any ideas of things you like or would love to see on the menu, leave me a comment on here or on Facebook. I’d love to hear from you!
