I can not 'plan' in the ordinary sense. I am eating out very often and never know what the menu will entail. I do chose non sauced items that are either broiled baked poached or steamed. Eat steamed
vegatables and few starches. That is my 'plan'.

I do meal planning on Sunday. I usually get my shopping lists from websites like Biggest Loser Club, and Team BeachBody. I also watch TV-Shows that give you suggestions for preparing a weeks worth of meals: Robin Miller on FoodTV, and Rachel Ray on Cooking Channel.

Now, if I can only be that consistent with my workouts, I would really start seeing the weight come off!

I also had a challenge with my eating today because of not feeling well. I had to kind of evaluate and make sure that I was eating enough. So I ate a little more than usual. I am still in calorie range, but it's close!

I keep breakfast and lunch about the same all week. We do cheerios with fruit, egg and toast, or oatmeal with fruit for breakfast. We do a healthy sandwich or salad with fruit and dairy for lunch.

Then, for dinner, I have a set guide I go by, fish or soup or Mexican or Italian or something like that. One for each day of the week, including a misc I can use to get rid of leftovers or try something totally new. Then, when I go grocery shopping or just need to stop in and "get a few things" I know what day it is and what the basic schedule is and I can pick up what I need for that. I find we eat much healthier when I cook at home and already have a plan in mind.

I use the nutrition tracker and usually plan my meals a few days at a time, it does make a difference if I track daily.

I am not sure if this qualifies as a daily/weekly meal plan or not, but this is what I do. I know what I am going to eat for breakfasts, snacks and lunches everyday what changes is the flavor. Breakfast a yoplait parfait or a special k bar, 1st snack jell-o or a yoplait splitzs, lunch a yogurt, 2nd snack jell-o or a splitz. Then for the next week I might have different things for choices but it would be the same choices all week. I do my best to bring things with me to eat when going places but once in awhile things go wrong and I am forced to eat out in which case I always ask for a stats page (even fast food restaurants have them) my favorite thing is a McDonalds parfait for 155 calories, all other stats for this are very low! Works great for my lunch! Dinners are always different however I look up every tiny little thing before I eat so I know how much I am eating before I eat.

Remember, YOU ARE WORTH IT!

In my own weight loss journey I have discovered that when I plan my meals, I not only save money at the grocery store I also do better with calorie consumption. Unfortunately I am not consistent with this particularly good habit. I know menu planning goes on in lots of families every week, but I mean more than that. Here is an example: yesterday my daughter had an eye appointment at 9 a.m. I fed her and the boys and then we left. I realized that I had a protein shake about 2 hours earlier and then by the time we did all we were going out to do I would be needing something else (blood sugar issues). Too late I was gone from the house and didn't have a healthy option planned out. I ended up at a fast food place, not what I wanted or needed. So menu planning for the week is great and then go one step further and plan each day's meals and snacks. That way you won't get stuck in a grab and go situation without something to grab and go.

You can menu plan and meal plan once per week or you can menu plan once a week and meal plan every morning however works best for you. Set yourself up for success by planning out your meals and snacks for a perfect calorie range day!!

Check in here and let us know how it is going and how you are doing your planning (once a week, a day or a month).
