This week also starts my Fit in 42 challenge with Tracey from Building My House. We're following a six week course outlined in the book 42 Days to Fit. We're making one healthy change a week for the next six weeks until we're eating whole foods. This week is going to be my biggest challenge - no desserts and no sugary drinks. You know I love both of these things, but I am determined to make a change. Prayers would be appreciated. I know I said I'd tell you more about it last week, but I got so busy with birthday fun I forgot. I promise tomorrow's post will be all about it so you can jump on board if you'd like.
This week's menu isn't going to look too different since I'm just eliminating desserts:
Monday: Cheeseburgers, loaded baked potato fries and salad.
Tuesday: Roast chicken in the crock pot, carrots and green beans.
Wednesday: Baked potato bar
Friday: Movie night - Iron Man 3 and dinner out
Saturday: Pizza night
Sunday: Steak, baked potatoes and salad.
I stocked up on some great fruits and veggies at Sam's this weekend. I hadn't planned on doing Fit in 42 when I did my once a month shopping and I didn't want to fail in week one because of my sweet tooth. I spent $54 for a case of mangos, another 10 pounds of apples, 2 bunches of bananas, 2 cantaloupe, 1 box of spinach, 1 bag of romaine, 2 pack of iceberg lettuce, a big bag of carrots and a bag of celery.
