Menu Planning Monday

So here we are towards the end of July and I'm finally feeling that hopefully life will go back to "normal" from the craziness that started May 17 when I headed off on my first trip.  Three countries and many states later...from vacation to work travel to "trips" (see last post - haha!), I'm ready to enjoy time at home and get back to working out every morning and getting back to the 21 day fix eating plan.  To faciliate that - I need to menu plan.  So when I saw Colleen from Meet the Sullivan's was going to host a menu planning link up, I thought I'd join in to hold myself accountable. Just what I need!

~ Monday ~

Rotisserie Chicken (CostCo) (1 red)
Brown rice (1 yellow)
Broccoli (1 green)

(PS Am I the weirdo or is Jimmy that I could eat that rotisserie chicken from CostCo everyday..??  Jimmy HATES it, but he played a good sport and ate it tonight)

~ Tuesday ~

SW Taco Salad 
- Lean ground beef, SW seasoning, black beans, corn on lettuce + avocado -
(1 red, 1 yellow (1/2 for beans & 1/2 for corn), 1 green, 1 blue)


Grilled Salmon (1 red)
Grilled Asparagus (1 green)
1/2 baked potato (1 yellow)


Chicken stir fry with brown rice 
(1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow)


Dinner at neighbors house!!  Excited to hang out with them and their 3 little kiddos!


Leftovers or grill something (we usually play the weekends by ear)

SO fun pictures, but I'm giving this a try this week to hold me accountable not only to cooking every night but also sticking to the meal plan.  Care to share what you are eating??!

PS I have SO much to blog about and am so so excited!!!


  1. We LOVE the rotisserie chickens from Costco!

    1. Ok good! I freaking LOVE them and Jimmy always makes me feel so weird!

  2. Wow you have been doing some serious traveling!! I love your menu plan! I really want to try 21 day fix after we have the baby. It sounds like it makes eating right super simple. Thank you for linking up!!

    1. Oh man - it's been quite the couple of months. I'm so excited to go back to my normal (somewhat boring!) life after that. And yes, you should! I did it while nursing too and lost 20lbs in about 8 weeks and I was never hungry and haven't felt stronger in my life!! Thanks for hosting the link up.
