Like I mentioned on Wednesday, I am working toward losing the last of the weight from my second pregnancy. We are making this a whole family affair so here’s our family’s plan of attack for the week.
We are not doing anything super specific right now. Our strategy is to limit our calories and portions. My husband and I will each have a calorie intake goal for each day and will structure our choices around our individual goals. Our strategy is going to be to focus on having lots of veggies and some lean protein, with a little bit of carbs as well. For breakfast we’ll be having egg muffins, oatmeal, or smoothies. My husband will be taking salads in his lunches and I will be having soup. I planned out our meals last night and here are our dinners for this week:
- Pasta Faigioli
- Chicken Vegetable Stew
- Teriyaki Beef Stir Fry
- Tilapia with rice and steamed mixed veggies
- Pork tenderloin with broccoli
- Crock pot Chicken Philly Cheese sandwiches with cucumber salad and carrots
Some of these are tried and trues, but others are new recipes. I will be sure to share which ones we really love with you all.
We are taking lots of walks as a family. I’m also
hoping to going to fit in some runs and Pilates. It has been a while since I’ve consistently done either of those, so we’ll see how this goes!
In order to keep myself accountable I’ll be checking in each Wednesday as part of a new series I’m calling “Healthy Mama” and I’d like you to join me! The series will feature an update on my progress and an opportunity to link-up your posts too. Anyone else out there trying to lose some baby weight? Or any weight? Please come and share your stories about your weight loss progress, healthy recipes, and forays into the world of fitness… basically anything about getting healthy! And no, you don’t have to be a mama to link up. The link-up should be live by 8:00 am Wednesday morning.
