Menu Plan Monday 2015 #6

Week 6 of 2015! Hard to believe. How is your year coming along? Accomplishing all you'd hoped?

I am and I'm not, so we will see where this year goes.

Last week I set the following goals:
  • Continue Dutch try and go for 5 times this week.-Nope
  • Get Etsy shop designed and live-Nope
  • Follow menu and go for 7/7-Mostly but cut out two days and ate leftovers because there was so much food! haha
  • Start to get some running miles in, despite the cold.-Nope lol It snowed people, I am a Floridian.
I will say this about my running goal, I hate running, I loved it so much in FL because I had my best friends in this world to run with, without that camaraderie running sucks. I am looking into a running group. I hate paying for stuff like that but it may be the only option to find some running buddies...that ya know, don't come from Craigslist haha

Anyway, this weeks goals:
  • Actually do some Dutch. I've gotten much more comfortable with basic phrases and even did exact change today when the woman told me the cents in Dutch and I was able to figure it out, after accidentally giving her 5 cents instead of fifty she said the word twice more and I had it, won't make that mistake again. She was sweet though and was patient. 
  • Get that Etsy shop up and going
  • Stick to the menu
Fitness Goals
  • Complete all days in the Fit Tutor
  • Get some running in, find a running buddy, possibly join a running club
  • Stretch & stick to healthy eating.

  • Oatmeal
  • Apple Tart
  • Blueberry Squares
  • Acai bowl
  • Weekend: blueberry muffins
  • Eat out
  • Hubby comes home I will make us teriyaki chicken, mine will be served over spinach with peppers, his with rice; kiddo took a mix of apples and peanut butter with snap peas and peppers
  • Rest of the week for me will be a variation on spinach salad each day except Thursday when I meet friends for lunch
  • Veggie panini with salad and leftovers rest of the week for kiddo
  • Weekend: we will probably eat a late breakfast so will snack for lunches
  • Vegan Red Pepper Pasta with spinach
  • Regular/black and white veggie burgers with sweet potato buns, green beans
  • Quinoa stuffed peppers with salad
  • Teriyaki beef with rice and salad/veggie fried rice and salad
  • Soup and sandwiches for hubby and kiddo, I have a ladies night out
  • Date night, kiddo will heat up leftovers
  • Chicken wings/cauliflower "wings", potatoes, veggies
  • Granola
  • Pumpkin pancakes

So, that is what we are cookin' up this week. What are you making?
