  • Friday
    • Lunch – standing Friday lunch with friends (Subway 6″ tuna sub loaded w/ veggies)
    • Dinner – leftover veggie lasagna (leftover chicken sandwiches)

I think I did a pretty good job of sticking to my meal plan for my first week.  Obviously I veered off a few times and changed it up later in the week, but it definitely helped me stay within the parameters of cooking dinner every night, often with leftovers for the next day.  That’s amazing for me.  I think allowing flexibility and using recipes I know helped a lot.

I’m going to give it a shot again this week.
