One of my biggest adjustments for the next six months is going to be cooking for one. You see in college, when I was cooking for one for realsies, I was a bad cook. A very, very bad cook. Meals often consisted of eating pizza out with pals, sushi in the student center, plain pasta, french bread pizza, ramen, quesadillas or mac and cheese. Not so healthy and five years and thirty pounds later…time to see if I can set myself back on track for good.
So I said I’d post my meal plan each week, again the whole accountability thing. Check it:
Wednesday: pasta with sausage/broccoli or salad with tempeh which ever i feel like cooking
Thursday: Junior League committee meeting
Friday: salad with tempeh
Saturday: hanging out with Liz – playing by ear
Sunday: tempeh tacos
I should also note that the fabulous husband sent me cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes – a subtle effort to sabotage my goal or a sweet treat from a loving husband…based on the evil laugh he gave me when I got to speak with him briefly (apparently we’ll still be able to chat
So, I figure if I plan out my meals I’ll be sure to eat healthy. Well, healthier. Also, two miles in just under 20 minutes = awesome sauce considering I agreed (finally) to run the Annapolis Half with Jenn. Time to get training, it felt really good to get out and run tonight, I’ll post a tentative training schedule before the end of the week that will include two days of circuit training (30 day shred anyone?), 3-4 days of running and 1 day of yoga.
How do you plan your meals, do you cook for one or more?
*Originally I was going to have a more….nutritionally sound dinner tonight. Buuttt I had to run an errand last minute so I fit in a 20 minute run down to the bank and then had a small bowl of cereal to end the night.
