So, I have to admit my plan from last week…..mostly worked. I can’t say I was 100% successful each day because I would be lying.
My main goals for last week was to have my lunch prepped for the whole week so that I wouldn’t have to buy anything before work in the morning or heading to the cafeteria lunch line, and to not grab takeout for dinner.
The lunch goal, I was fully successful in. I didn’t buy lunch at all last week, nor did I buy anything to eat at work for any reason. I still treated myself to my Friday Dunkin Donuts Hot Chocolate (which was free thanks to DD Perks!), but that was it. Having my lunch ready to grab in the morning was so easy and I even realized that I’d portioned too much for myself, so I rarely needed any of the snacks that I’d packed, nor was I haphazardly munching on bad things throughout the day.
Now the dinner part…..Ehhhhhh….
Having dinners planned out was successful in the middle part of the week. Monday, I was going to have leftovers from Sunday, but I was so drained (As was Devon) that we ordered from our local Italian place. Not the best choice, but it happened. And Friday I had a counselor conference to attend all day and was going to the grocery store after. I had every intention on purchasing something from the store to make when I got home. But between traffic, a nasty headache and all out exhaustion, I picked up a wrap from Wegman’s before I came home. Not the worst dietary choice, so I’m not that mad about it. It’s better than stopping at Burger King or something of the like.
But overall, it was better. I didn’t feel as confused or felt like I had no idea what to eat. So, it’s something that I’m going to keep trying every week. I’m sure there will be times, like Monday, when the plan flies out the door. But as long as it’s just that one meal, it’s not a big deal to me.
