It’s officially 2016 and the only real differences I’ve noticed is that the gym is more packed than ever and that Trader Joe’s was sold out of kale yesterday….hello resolution time.
Resolutions are an important thing to talk about and I really learned this after working in weight loss for years. It goes like this for most people:
- Make a resolution to get fit, lose weight, eat healthy…
- Stick to it for 2 weeks
- Give up because you’re not seeing results fast enough
I really want to stress to you all to not expect to change overnight. Change takes time and that’s a good thing. You have to give your body time to adjust to a new routine. Plus let’s look big picture…don’t focus on just losing 10 lbs in 2016…focus on losing that 10 lbs then keeping it off for good!
Be patient and let these wonderful resolutions truly become a part of your life long-term not just for January.
Let’s get to my Weekly Meals. It’s suppose to rain all week and barely get above 60 here in San Diego- THIS IS FREEZING and yes I’m a complete baby (hence my $300 SDG&E bill from having the heat on 24/7…whoops).
Freezing temps = soups, casseroles and pastas in my house (skinny versions of course).
Sunday: PaleOMG’s Buffalo Chicken Casserole
Monday: Kale & Chickpea Pasta (recipe on the blog Friday- teaser picture below)
Tuesday: Salsa Chicken Thighs as a burrito bowl- basically just the chicken over brown rice, black beans, corn and topped with some avocado and salsa…YUM!
Wednesday: Leftover chicken with a bag of salad
Thursday: Skinny Taste’s No Bean Sweet Potato Chili– except I add 1 can of black beans, 1 can of kidney beans and an extra can of tomatoes (picture above)
Friday: Pasta Prima Spinach Ravioli from Costco (in the frozen section)- LAZY I know, but it’s Friday!
Saturday: OUT! As much as I love cooking I’m so sick of it at the end of the week ha!
