Week Three

OK. Last week went ok, but we had a few hiccups. I am going to try putting my meal plan online before the fact. My challenge over the past couple weeks is that I have been making really yummy foods that are not the best for my waistline.

This week, and for the next 3 weeks, I am going to try to be really strict with my diet and see if I can lose 10lbs.

Today, I am going to have shakshouka for dinner, with no pita, but with Israeli salad.
Tuesday: Grilled chicken breast and salad
Wednesday: veggie burgers with cucumber salad and seaweed
Thursday: we are going out to dinner to celebrate our two weeks of meals and clean house.

For breakfast/lunch I am going to have a chobani yogurt and two hard boiled eggs. I am also going to get my 12 cups of water.

The real challenge is planning the kids meals.

Monday: French toast
Tuesday: tortellini
Wednesday: veggie burgers or cheese with pasta (their choice)
Thursday: Out to dinner (so probably hotdogs :))

Cleaning has been going pretty well. We got rid of about 5 boxes of donation stuff from my bedroom and the playroom. We also threw away about 4 bags of garbage. We are going to try to get rid of a few more boxes of stuff this week. Already, the play room is easier to manage since my almost 5 year old and my 8 year old each have a big bag to keep their stuff in, there is one box for Lego, one box for Baby Toys, and basket for play food, and a box for dress up. Also, there are a couple small bins for miscellaneous stuff like dreidels and stuffed animals. Anything else that doesn't fit in those categories and doesn't have a home is going away. Much easier to stay organized and neat when you don't have junk taking up a lot of room.

Next room to tackle is the office room. There are too many papers and other stuff that we don't need that is taking up space in the closet and the drawers. I am going to get to that room this week.

Also, the cleaning lady didn't come at all last week. We kept everything reasonably neat, but it will be nice to have the house really clean when I come home from work today.
