I'm gonna to show you the money, I'M GONNA SHOW YOU RESULTS!!!

I don't know what's my problem this week... last week I totally got thrown off due to the holidays... and that's understandable. I vowed to start over this week... but I haven't been my best, I did get a lot of exercise in and most filling foods, but I also went over my points and drank very little water.

Tomorrow's weigh-in, so I need to get a game plan together TONIGHT. I'm making a menu for next week... then make sure to go get what I need. Thinking about it, I realized when I have weak weeks it's usually when I don't do my shopping. When I have what I need at home I'm good at staying on program.

So this week... I need to write my menu out, and make sure to have what I need. I'm new to writing a weekly menu (I got the idea from Di - http://theincredibleshrinkingfamily.blogspot.com).

Okay so here we go - I get 25 points per day:

BREAKFAST:
1 Cup Oatmeal: 2 pt
1/2 Cup Milk: 1 pt

SNACK:
Fruit/Vegetable: 0 - 2

LUNCH:
Mixed greens: 0
Dressing: 0-2
Poultry 3-4 oz: 3-4
Salad Extra: 1

SNACK:
Fruit/Vegetable: 0-2

SNACK:
Fruit/Vegetable: 0-2

DINNER:
1 Large Potato: 3
1 Cup Broccoli: 0
Butter Spray: 0
2 Tbs Sour Cream: 2
4 oz Poultry: 4

SNACK (optional):
Weight Watcher Dessert or Fruit/Vegetable depending on how many points I have left.

I think that's a pretty good menu for me. I'll try this for a week... then change it up possibly next week. If I go to Ross' this weekend I'll have to pack my food - he has the kids this week, so the menu is different from when it's just us. We usually make childhood classics that aren't the best foods for losing weight: french fries, burgers, pizza, mac and cheese, meatloaf, bean and cheese burritos on homemade tortillas, etc. I'll have to take my own food.

I can do this, I will do this! With in the past couple of weeks I've built up my followers from 2 or 3 to currently 35, plus my youtube viewers and those who aren't either but visit me here. I don't want to disappoint you. I don't want to be one of those people who lose the same couple of pounds over and over... I refuse to be that person! I wanna show you the money, I wanna show you results, and I will! Stay tuned!

Planning is something that has become my co-pilot, right arm and salvation for so many things ! I have been planning school lesson plans for 12 years , and because of these I have to plan lunches so why not breakfast and dinner as well. Then it became necessary to plan these well in order to live on one income, and by the time weight loss entered the picture it was just second nature. You did great with your first plan ! As you go on you will find what kind of factors will affect your planing, how to avoid potential hurdles that you can foresee, and so many other factors to make planning work well for you.I also try to plan our work outs now, as for me this is a "sacred" act, much like a school lesson plan. If it is written on a planner somewhere it becomes an iron clad must do, and I get it done. It's just one of my quirks it seems.

Woo HOO, ROSIE! You are so hyped up and it's contagious! You can do this, and you WILL do this! You are AWESOME for getting your plan together, and expecting nothing but the best from yourself!

God, I am totally the same regarding the shopping. When my fridge is stocked, I'm an on-plan MACHINE. I think realizing that is half the battle though. Good luck with your plan!

AMY: Thank you for such a nice comment. Yes I do feel a new sense of motivation. Thank Goodness...

DI: After I get the meal planning down then I'll work on the work out schedule... you're so well organized. You're inspiring!

HOLLIE: Thank you Hollie, and I'm glad you're back too... this is OUR year!

ANDREA: Thank you. I think we need to just work on keeping the right foods in the house. We can do this!
