Monday #Mumentum - A Meal Plan Might Help?

It got to the end of the week and I was wondering what I would be posting about today.  There was no way that I was not going to do a #Mumentum post but I had nothing really to report.  Things are much the same, my exercise is great, my sleeping is good and I am being and feeling positive but my food is still rubbish. So instead of dwelling on the past I will look forward.

I read the serenity prayer this morning and I yet again realised how applicable this simple but powerful prayer is for me.  Do you know it?

Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. The courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Now I have got the acceptance bit down to pat but as for the courage to change the things I can, not so much so.  This is the one I need to work on this week.  I can change my eating, I have done it before and I WILL do it again - this week in fact.

So here is my meal pan for this week, as I know that when I plan I am far more likely to stick to it. 

Brekkie - 2 weetabix and milk, apple
Snack - Go ahead biscuits
Lunch - Pasta bolognaise
Snack - Slim a soup
Dinner - Poached salmon and loads of veg

Brekkie - Porridge and orange juice 
Snack - Melba toasts and philli
Lunch - Jacket potato with beans and little cheese
Snack - Tinned fruit
Dinner - Quorn stir fry

Brekkie - Shreddies, milk and banana
Snack - Apple
Lunch - Tuna sandwich, crisps, grapes
Snack - Ryvita and ham
Dinner - Oven fish, chips and peas, no sugar jelly

Brekkie - Porridge, orange juice
Snack - Melba toast and philli
Lunch - Chicken and veg soup, Ryvita's and ham
Snack - Apple
Dinner - Chicken casserole and rice

Brekkie - Beans on 2 toast
Snack - Apple
Lunch -  No idea, seeing Liska, so I am sure she will keep an eye on me!
Snack - Melba toast and philli
Dinner -  Meeting a friend, going out for dinner  (so an unpredictable day in all!)

I have no idea as yet what the weekend will hold so I will just plan for the dinners...

Saturday - Chicken fahijas
Sunday - Roast chicken dinner

Yes it might look like a lot of food to you but believe me it is less than an average day at the moment and I need to be realistic, small changes over time will make a big change and hopefully a shift in habits.  So this weeks focus is all around eating 3 set meals with a maximum of 2 snacks and not picking in the evening.

Good luck to everyone else joining in with #Mumentum, I hope this week rocks for you!
