Weekly Weigh In

I seem to have hit a plateau over the past few weeks.  I broke 180 once and after the beach (now 3 weeks ago) I can’t see to get back under it again.  Technically Friday night the scale showed me under at 179.6 however that was after 24 hours with a rough stomach bug so it shouldn’t really count.  By Sunday it was back to 180.6.  So here I sit with another week and no loss.  It steals your thunder a bit after a few weeks.

Last week I exercised 4 times before the stomach bug hit, so now that I’m back to 100% the goal is 5 times this week.  I’m also planning a meal plan to help me not struggle at dinner time.  Lately we’ve been having nice family meals, but that means more calories.  It’s hard to eat something different from everyone else, so this week they will join me with no starches and only green sides.  Bring on the happy campers…

 This weeks weigh in numbers:

Starting Weight (14 weeks ago): 202
Last Week: 180.4
Current Weight: 180.6
Goal Weight: 165

My meal plan for the next week:

Breakfast (pick 1):
Nature Valley Protein Bars (190 calories)
Special K Frozen Sandwich (170-210 calories)

Lunch (rotate between):
Bistro Salad Bowl Kits (170-210 calories)
Sea Cuisine Entree (170-200 calories) with broccoli or asparagus
Smart Ones Frozen Meal

Grilled Salmon, Asparagus and Salad
Smart Ones Frozen Meal
Broiled Chicken, green beans and salad
Grilled Shrimp, with sautéed squash and green beans

I am traveling for two days to Alabama so those will be the eat salad days or my favorite grilled chicken nuggets and super food salad from Chick Fil A.  I will report at loss next week even if I end up running 15 miles and exercising 3 times I day.  This plateau is not my stopping point, only a small detour!

I hope some of you had a much better week on scale than I did.  How did it go?  Have any favorite lunch time meals I can add to the mix (that’s probably a bigger struggle than dinner some days)?
