Menu Plan Monday

We started week 3 of our Couch to 5K.  It was a tough Sunday run but I made it.  It is tough during the middle of some of the runs but it is so worth it when its over.  I feel so good and energzied.  It also helps having a running partner for both Hubs and I.  We are on schedule for our first 5K run in May.  I'm very excited.  And I lost 3lbs this past week so I'm definitely feeling good about our eating as well.

Here's our plan for this week...

Saturday - Dinner at K's house.  We had roast, potatoes, carrots, and mac n cheese

Sunday - Crock Pot Pulled Pork with home fries

Monday - Chicken Sauteed with squash and zuchini served over rice

Tuesday - Turkey Bacon BLTs

Wednesday - Taco Salads

Thursday - Homemade Pizza and Salads

Friday - Turkey Sloppy Joes

Menu Plan Monday

Week 2 of Couch to 5k started yesterday.  It was rough but so worth it in the end.  I am so glad Hubs and I are doing this and that we have friends to run with.  Even the dog is getting exercise!  This week, I tried for easy-to-prepare meals for run nights and some healthy, yet comfort foods for the other nights. 

Saturday - Out with Friends (this was not on our diet and was our "freebie" night)

Sunday - Hamburgers with grilled onions on whole wheat buns

Monday - Skinny Chicken Parmesan

Tuesday - Tacos or Taco Salads

Wednesday - Onion Chicken, roasted potatoes, green beans

Thursday - Grilled (or maybe buffalo-style) chicken salads

Friday - Grocery shopping night!

This week starts a new routine.  We began a Couch to 5K program yesterday with some friends who have been running for quite a while.  They are great coachs so far.  And it's great to have another female to run with.  Now we need to get back to watching our diet!

Saturday - Dinner with Friends.  We helped them move all day and enjoyed a fun dinner!

Sunday - Roast with potatoes and carrots, blackeyed peas, and cornbread

Monday - Hamburger Steaks with gravy and onions, mashed potatoes, and green beans

Tuesday - Taco Salads

Wednesday - Cajun Chicken Pasta

Thursday - Taco Soup and mexican cornbread

Friday - Grocery night!
