I am gearing up for another week. Work is stressful these days, so it’s really important that I stick to a meal plan. I have been known to “stress eat”. I make sure that I don’t have any trigger foods in the house, and that my breakfasts, lunches, and snacks are healthy, hearty, and tasty.
I don’t have time to do anything extravagant. I’ve become expert at what I call “dump” recipes. I keep a pantry full of healthy convenience foods. Frozen veggies are a staple. This week I prepped veggie omelette muffins for breakfast. If I don’t want that one day, I’ll switch it out to a yogurt and berry bowl one day. Or overnight oats that I keep in the fridge in jelly jars. For lunch I made Asian chicken veggie soup. I also made a dessert snack of slow cooked apples. I don’t really use recipes. I am attaching photos of the ingredients I used today, and of finished products for you to see. They are all low cal, and low WW points. If you have any questions about what you see, feel free to ask. I will answer the best I can.
My exercise plan this week is to aqua jog Monday, Wednesday, and Friday after work, and swim laps on Saturday and Sunday. That is my usual routing, and it works great for me. The aqua jogging allows me to decompress after work, gives me the cardio and the physical therapy I need for my back. And the lap swimming, well, that is just what I love to do. And it is the best exercise for everyone, but especially people with orthopedic issues.
