I am getting older and my kids are still young. I need to be around for them. I want to be healthy and active with them. I am and have been since giving birth to Sam at my all time high - and I've been too busy with kids and work and quilting to make getting healthy a priority in my life. I'm not a dieter and I have NO will power. ZERO. I start eating good - and someone offers me a donut 3 hours later and I'll eat it. So clearly I have a life style change ahead of me. I decided this year - is my year to get in shape and feel healthy. I don't get enough sleep, I feel sluggish, and most my life is ran on Red Bull. I hope over the next few months I can change things up every week to progress and make life long changes. I'm not a all or nothing kind of girl - I'm going to do this gradually - and this week I'm going to start with cooking decent meals at home - and adding a little workout to give me some energy and get me going.
So here is my menu for the week - wish me luck!
Monday - Baked Chicken Pesto (Jake's Favorite!)
Tuesday - Mini Chicken and Broccoli Pies
Wednesday - Sloppy Joe Pizzas
Thursday - Melt in your Mouth Chicken w/salad and fruit
Friday - Tacos w/fruit
Saturday - Chicken Enchiladas
A lot of chicken on the menu this week - but I'm trying to get through what I have in the fridge. Trying some new recipes to get me motivated I'll let you know how they turn out!
