The "Dead People Running for Office" Edition.....
This is day 113 of the "diet". Yay!
My PCP is on board with this way of eating to reach a short term goal so no unsolicited advice on this eating plan please. While I appreciate the concerns I am fine and I am losing weight. I haven't had any sugar nor any white food(mostly).....bread, potatoes, rice, pasta since returning from the cruise on June 4th. But I am holding fast to my plan anyway.....so far. I am down an additional 40 lbs. since starting this eating plan(not counting the 8 lbs. I gained on the cruise and then dropped after coming home).
Onward to the meal planning!
This is what was planned for last week.......
1. Sunday--Tacos or Taco Salad
2. Monday--Chicken Quesadilla, some Veggie TBD
3. Tuesday--Cheeseburger, Corn on Cob
4 Wednesday--Lasagna, Salad
7. Saturday--Leftovers or FFY
And here's what actually happened........
1. Sunday--Tacos or Taco Salad
2. Monday--bad Chimichanga out
3. Tuesday--Yogurt cup w/Flaxseed, Chicken Quesadilla
4 Wednesday--Stir-Fry Veggies with Cashews
5. Thursday--Lasagna, Salad
6. Friday--Cheese and Crackers
7. Saturday--Cranberry/Walnut/Feta Salad, 2 Chicken Strips, Broccoli in Cheese Sauce
Most of the plan happened but not necessarily when it was planned to happen. I made the Quesadilla(using some leftover roast chicken and the rest went into the freezer), the Lasagna and the Chicken strips meals. Hubs was responsible for making the Tacos and his own dinners beyond the ones I cooked and any leftover meals.
No going back to old habits and eating patterns for me!
What got taken out of the freezer last week...
* 2 bags of Ground Beef
* Chicken Strips
* 2 boxes of Veggies
What got put into the freezer last week....
* 3 bags of Chicken Strips
* 3 bags of Veggies
* Frozen Pizza(Hubs)
* 1 roll of Sausage
* 1 rope of Boudin(Hubs)
Last week we spent $67.42 on grocery shopping for September.
Grand Total shopping comes to $508.12 for September.
There are 29 shopping days left in October and I posted September's grocery totals on the blog already..
I've earned $135.10 on Ibotta in September.
I've earned $32.00 on Shopmium in September.
I've earned $0 on Coupons dotcom in September.
I've earned $8.00 on Alexa app in September.
I've earned $1.60 on Kroger Cash Back in September.
I've earned $0 on Checkout 51 in September.
I've earned 1,497 points from food shopping on Fetch in September.
I've earned 1,933 points from food shopping on Shop Kick in September.
I've earned 35 SB from food shopping on Swag Bucks in September.
That is $176.70 in rebates(not counting the Shop Kick/Swag Bucks/Fetch)on $508.12 of grocery spending so in reality it's $331.42.00 in food spending after the 6 rebate apps I count.
My savings percentage for the last week was 35.20% and the monthly savings total for September comes in at 36.61% spent.
Leftovers going into this week...taco meat, lasagna.
Here is this week's "food plan".....
1. Sunday--Spaghetti and Meatballs, Salad
2. Monday--Grilled Salmon, Sautèed Cabbage
3. Tuesday--Cheeseburgers, Baked Sweet Potato Fries
4 Wednesday--Leftovers or Fend for Yourself
5. Thursday--Leftovers(Lasagna, etc.)
6. Friday--No Clue
7. Saturday--No Clue
I'll cook the Spaghetti, Salmon and Cheeseburger meals. He'll eat and do his own thing on other days or have leftovers from those meals.
What do I need to buy to fix everything on this menu? I need nothing to fix the meals on the plan. I may still do a little loss leader/stocking up shopping at Kroger this week but it shouldn't cost much.
What is getting fixed and served at your house this week?
Was last week's plan successful, did you go off plan or did you not even plan what was going to be eaten last week?
Any deals on food at your stores this week?
