There will be no new formal Meal Plan this week, not because I've given up but because I'm simply behind schedule, sick, and need to unload a little stress. I thought I'd conquered the bronchitis/sinus infection but it came back the last two days fiercer than before so I'm back on antibiotics and double the prednisone for double the length of time. Oh joy.
I did do pretty well this week. I didn't lose any weight but didn't gain any, walked 6,000 steps x 4 days, exercised formally 30 minutes x 2, and stocked the kitchen with everything for our favorite go to meals like chicken piccata, oven fried chicken, pork chops & apples, taco salads, etc.
The kitchen is stocked with lots of good food to make great, healthy meals from so I'll still be posting new recipes this week and will go back to the more formal meal plan next week. The one "fun" day will be Valentine's Day which is also the premiere for The Walking Dead second season half. Yay! We have our normal Dead Dinner crew: James and Susan coming over for dinner, along with Ann (not a fan be we might be able to convert her now that Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been added to the cast, ooh la la!). The food them will be "High Tea"-ish...basically appetizers and pretty mini desserts.
My plan is to eat lots of good food while trying not to overeat due to the prednisone influence, get well, not be miserable at work, and not gain any weight while all this is going on! It's the small things in life, you know?
