Weekly Menu 2/17 - 2/21, Abs Diet Week 1


I love lazy weekends. There is just something thrilling about knowing that you pretty much have absolutely nothing to do.

I realized the other day that my trip to Florida is a mere 8 weeks away and I am no where ready for bikini season. At all. So, I started off by purchasing some motivation, in the form of this bikini from J Crew.

I then took a picture of it and changed it to be the background on my phone. I said I would never become one of those people completely addicted to their phones, but unfortunately, I'm slowly getting there. I decided to use it for good though, by reminding me every time I look at my phone that I need to transform my current figure to fit into the bikini. Motivation at its finest.

Then, I decided to fall back on my old stand-by, but in full force this time. I've mentioned on here hundreds of times that a while back, I did the Abs Diet recipe and I had huge success. I've half-heartedly tried it a few other times and didn't have any real success. Today starts a different day though. It's not that I just want to lose weight, I've gained enough that I'm at the point where I need to lose weight. It would be great to know what is causing this to happen since, while I'm not really doing much to prevent gaining the weight, I'm also not doing anything to cause it. Occasional sweets and keeping track of my calories. This should not be happening. However, it is and I need to stop it.

I think I've amassed a decent amount of healthy recipes, those from the Abs Diet, some Weight Watchers ones, ones from Cooking Light and Eating Well, and from two cookbooks that give you the Weight Watchers Points Comparisions. So while the menu for the next 6-8 weeks won't be entirely Abs Diet, it is going to follow it pretty closely.

Dinner includes:
Sunday - Grilled Filet Mignon with Spicy Oven Fries, Salad 

Monday - Chicken Stir Fry over Brown Rice

Tuesday - Turkey Chili Mac with Pepperjack Cheese

Wednesday - Grilled Shrimp, Pineapple and Bell Pepper over Rice 

Thursday - Prosciutto Panini, Salad 

For lunch I am going to have Chicken Noodle Soup. Breakfast will be banana raspberry smoothies.

The concept of the Abs Diet is to eat 6 times a day, 3 meals and 3 snacks where you are consuming power foods. For snacks this week, I have apples, string cheese, Triscuit crackers and baby carrots.

I still have a huge backlog of recipes that I need to share with you, so unless I receive any requests to bump these recipes up in line, you probably won't see any of this for another 2+ weeks. However, let me know.
