This week's menu is a B O R E! The hubs and I have decided to tighten up our purse strings so that we can build our main savings account up. I crunched the numbers, and while I am good at math, my budgets tend to work better in theory than in practice. LOL! Anyways, we are going to see if we can suffer through this week (and maybe next!) before I up our allowance. You should've seen us counting out change to pay for booze (not mine!) this weekend. LOL! We're going cash only, for the most part.
Oh yeah, back to the boring menu... tight purses and contest prep = food that isn't very exciting!
Monday - 93/7 ground turkey taco salad topped w/ salsa, homemade "fiesta" hummus, and corn
Tuesday - 93/7 turkey burgers (mine without bun), portabella mushrooms,
Wednesdsay - tilapia, barley (does anyone know if this is considered a wheat product?), broccoli
Thursday - buffalo chicken tenders (prep style! I'll post a recipe later in the week!), french fries (baked, of course!), random veggie to be determined
Friday - black bean burgers (no bun for me!), barley (if it's wheat-free), broccoli
Saturday - Heading to my dad's house. Seth and I made a pact to not eat out for the month of August. I'm thinking we may bring down some steaks to grill from our local meat market. YUM!

PREP: 10 weeks out. So, I got my goal weight from my coach. I know a couple of you were curious... 118-120. Before my carb up, I was at 124.8, so I don't have a whole lot more to lose. That being said, my abs still haven't made an appearance. That is definitely my trouble spot! I also would not be surprised if once I got to that range, we would need to go lower. That is just how I am feeling currently, but I'm not the expert and I fully trust my coach.
THE BASEMENT: This craphole is still a major stressor for me. Slowly but surely I am making some progress. At least now my posing area is free of clutter.
FOOD: Check out the crazy concoctions that I made in the kitchen over the weekend!
A muffin with a PB Chocolate surprise center!
PB Chocolate loaves
A meusli loaf for hubby... He said it was really good, so I will share the recipe later in the week. :)
And my attempt at a PB Banana Loaf recipe that my dear friend Kathie requested.
FRUGAL FUN: Check out the goodies I got at CVS for $1.07 this weekend!
I love Extra Care Rewards!
