Menu this Week!

Along with working out everyday (30 Day Shred), I’ve been doing well with drinking tons of water & not so much soda… I actually almost made it 7 whole days without a single Dr Pepper! That is impressive for me. I wish I hadn’t given in! I still haven’t had nearly as much as I used to though, so YAY!

I’ve decided to revamp our groceries and meals for a week. I hope to make this a lifestyle change, but I seem to do well with starting with structured, short-term goals…baby steps are my friend!

I am cutting soda & alcohol completely out of my diet, along with refined flour (breads & pastas), fast food, fried snacks & sugary dessert type snacks. The hardest parts for me will be soda, ice cream, hitting up the drive thrus & of course my favorite…PASTA! (…okay, so that makes pretty much everything but bread and alcohol a “hard part”, lol…sheesh.)

Here is my plan for this week!

Breakfast: Veggie Omelet w/ side of fruit [OR] Oatmeal w/ fruit

Lunch: Spinach Salad loaded with veggies

Dinner: Chicken w/ brown rice & veggies [OR] Tilapia & sauteed veggies w/ brown rice

Snack/Dessert Options: Baby carrots, string cheese, apples, bananas, greek yogurt topped w/ granola, 75%+ organic dark chocolate bar

Drink Options: WATER, WATER & more WATER! Orange juice (no more than 1 cup per day). Almond milk (Plain & Chocolate…it’s actually pretty good!)

I am snacking throughout the day in between meals on fruits and veggies… so far so good! Little by little, I am really hoping to start replacing all the junk me and my family have been eating with beneficial things. I have a couple of recipes I am going to try too. One I saw on a friend’s culinary blog, how to make your own granola… the second is making your own banana chips! Mmmmm… 🙂

Wish me luck!


About Kat

If I had to choose one word to describe myself, it would be eclectic. I like a little bit of everything and I do a little bit of everything. :) Some of my current favorite things to do are: spend time with my husband and daughters, work my home based business (, play with makeup and nail polish, work out (pilates, Jillian Michaels DVDs & pole dance/fitness), play Halo Reach & Zombies (COD) on xbox 360, living on the lake & blogging! I love my family more than life itself...and I will guard and protect them with my life. I've also learned to start standing up for myself (thanks to one of my mentors!) and tell people to back off when they try to hurt me or my family. My childhood abuse no longer defines me, thanks to my Savior Jesus Christ...and as a result of giving ALL parts of my life to Him, I have more peace and joy than I can ever remember having!

  1. Frigo LIGHT String Cheese is a GREAT snack option too. (60 cals)

    3 cups of airpopped popcorn is 90 cals

    1 hard boiled egg is 78 cals

    100 calorie snack packs are GREAT too.

    Anyway, best of luck on the new menu planning!

  2. Thanks for the suggestions! 🙂
