Menu Planning....

When I am losing weight the hardest thing for me- is trying to figure out what to eat. Not so much what food is good and bad but the planning of it. I think that is why I loved Jenny Craig so much. I joined JC after the birth of my first son. I dropped 20 pounds in 4 weeks through JC. For me it was the ease of it- here is your food and a list of what to eat on what days- it required no thought. Now as I try to lose the baby weight from my second son, I find planning my meals so difficult. I feel like I don't have enough time to plan out the meals that I would like to eat especially on a tight budget.

My first goal for my weight loss- is to make out a monthly meal plan. Tonight I am taking the time to write everything out and post it on my refrigerator so i can see it front and center.

With that said I have decided to post a new budget friendly, healthy recipe on my blog every Thursday: "Thinning Down Thursday Recipes". Make sure to check them out! I will be posting the recipe as well as pictures each Thursday!

  1. This is the part that's hanging me up right now too. That and the box of Dove chocolates my husband bought at Christmas. I wish he would eat them already!

    Looking forward to your Thursday post! Maybe I will do something like this too at some point.
