Sent my weigh-in to Allan yesterday- 205.4 (205 since he rounds). Finally moving away from 206 in the right direction! Only a .8 loss for the week, but I'll take it.
Dinner for the entire week is planned and on the kitchen white board as usual, but I've gotten a bit lazy about planning breakfast and lunch ahead of time lately. Since the foods in Phase 4 are mostly very fresh, that's not going to work. Waiting until morning to pack a lunch for work usually leads to grabbing a lean cuisine too often. Last week I had soups I'd made ahead, so that kept me from reaching for the pre-packaged meals, and I take fruit for snacks now so none of that was pre-packaged either. This week, my goal is to have lunch packed the night before, and any prep work for breakfast done that I can do the night before too. Mornings are just a rush for us, and if I plan to be successful, planning ahead is necessary. I bought no new lean cuisines this weekend- I don't even want them in the freezer to fall back on. Planning all the meals the night before means I can also pre-track my calories, and I like that!
We have my youngest brother staying with us a few days this week, and it's been a little eye-opening. I've always known I'm a type A person.. But wow! Having someone else, even someone I grew up with, in my space that doesn't know how we roll here is making me twitchy. "Hi, my name is Cheryl, and I am SUCH a control freak!" Doesn't help that Mr. D is slacking on his to-do list, which I happen to be at the top of, because we have a guest on the couch.
I guess that means I have more time to plan tomorrow, right?!
