Menu Plan Monday

February 20, 2012

Today marks the first day of my 30 day shred challenge (I have over 10 people shredding with me, want to join in, leave me a message).  I woke up bright and early to shred, it was work, lots of work.  Tomorrow I will be feeling it for sure, but no pain no gain, right?  Last week I started the AdvoCare 24 day challenge and as of today, day 11, I have lost exactly 8lbs.  While I think AdvoCare has lots to do with the weight loss, I have also been tracking my food and exercise in Myfitnesspal.com This helps keep me accountable for what I am eating and planning my meals. I am not starving myself, just watching portions and being very aware of what I am eating, it’s pretty simple actually and I feel so good in such a short amount of time.  I think advocare, tracking cals, and doing the shred together I am hoping to see some amazing results.
I have picked out some healthy meals to enjoy with my family.  What are you serving this week?
ps: I don’t sell either of those products I just sharing my results having following the programs.
Last week we enjoyed:

Fish Baked in foil (using DT and my Dad’s fresh caught trout)

Quinoa Pizza Bites (recipe and picture courtesy of So Very Blessed)

Santa Fe Chicken Salad (picture and recipe courtesy of Good Life Eats) using Sticky chicken

I am embarking on the Shred challenge with you. I am looking forward to loosing that pouch that us women are not a fan of. Too bad I get a bit worn out even by the windmills during the warm up!! Anywho…my husband follows the Paleo lifestyle and we often have spaghetti with no noodles, but with spaghetti squash. Yum!

Your meals look delicious. It’s truly time I move beyond the ordinary and include some more interesting options on my family menu – then maybe the kids will eat without complaining!
