#visalus check in, week 2


It was a bit of an odd week for me. For no good damn reason, I could not get my shit together. My sleep was screwy and timing of shakes and snacks and meals were all over the place. This is much easier all around if I make plans, prep ahead and stay on schedule. It was that week so really all bets were off. But I don’t think I did too bad.
I decided if two meals were going to be shakes, dinners would be delcious and nutritous and totally homemade. As in, if we want mac & cheese we will make it from scratch with normal ingredients. We all have sweet teeth, I have made a few fruity muffins to keep those sweet teeth satisfied. I am cooking more, spending more time in the kitchen and I am having so much fun!
We are able to have leftiver nights! For the last few years we have turned leftovers into lunches. We never had leftovee nights. I forgot how awesome it is to have random leftover nights! When my AC decided to stop working, I was even happier to have leftovers. Speaking of food and leftovers, I have been menu planning most of the summer but 2-4 days at a time depending on a few different factors. As school starts back, I will go back to weekly menu planning and blogging said menu. I am very aware with shakes and school and the busyness I know will begin next week, I must plan and prep.
As usual, I ramble.
This is my last week to prep for back to school and it is also last week to hit the beach as much as possible before I turn into Teacher Jen. Luckily, the weekends for a while will be perfect for beach without so may shoobies! My to-do list is 67 miles long….time for me to get to work!
