I stuck to all my dinners I planned for last week with the exception of last night--I had no sauce for the chicken I'd planned, so I had 2 MorningStar Farms Asian veggie burgers on whole wheat buns instead.

Today's plan:

leftover broccoli, cheese, and chicken soup
salad - romaine, baby spinach, broccoli slaw, shredded red cabbage, sliced almonds, chicken, and Asian sesame dressing
string cheese
chicken breast tenders with barbecue sauce, avocado, and Swiss cheese, side of mashed cauliflowerDinners for the week:

Monday: chicken w/bbq sauce, avocado, and Swiss, side of mashed cauliflower
Tuesday: turkey burgers
Wednesday: turkey keilbasa, side of mashed cauliflower
Thursday: crockpot chili
Friday: TBD
Saturday: out for dinner! protein and vegetable
Sunday: TBDI'll fill in the TBDs later tonight--right now, I have to go to a metting!

I've cooked dinners at home all week long with the exception of Thursday--we used that as our "eat out" night instead of Friday--at least it was "instead of" and not "in addition to!"

I hit a low weight of 308 earlier this week, which was immediately followed by 311, but TOM has started, so I expect to see a lovely wide range of numbers over the next few days :dizzy:
