Meal Plan Monday {Oct 24} + WW {Wk23}

We made it 62 days without eating out.  After our 20 mile run on Saturday we went out to dinner since we were both starving and too tired to cook.  We also ended up going out to eat on Sunday night too.  We’ve got one meal planned out this week, for my birthday, and then we’ll be starting a new streak!  I don’t know that we’ll make it 62 days again … but we will definitely try!

The Spinach & Feta Pasta from last week was sooo good.  It reminded me of my favorite pasta dish from one of our favorite local Italian restaurants!  Yum.  I have a feeling I’ll be making it often :)

Since we ended up going out to eat last night also I ended up moving the Penne & Zucchini Carbonara to this weeks meal plan :)

Monday ~ Penne & Zucchini Carbonara

This got moved from last night to tonight since we ended up going out to eat last night. 

Tuesday ~ Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

I love finding new Sloppy Joe recipes!  I’m excited to try this even though I’ll be slightly adapting the recipe {I’ll be using ground turkey; and no cheese sauce – just shredded cheese on top!}

Wednesday ~ MY BIRTHDAY

We are going out to dinner for sushi!  And I’m pretty sure I’ll be baking some sort of birthday treat … I just don’t know what yet. 

Thursday ~ leftovers

Friday ~ Pasta with marinara sauce and turkey meatballs

Saturday ~ leftover pasta

Sunday ~ Homemade Stuffed Pizza Calzones

I’ll be using Trader Joe’s refrigerated pizza dough.  I have a hard time with this dough but we bought 5 packages of it and froze it --- this is the last package.  We really like the flavor of the doughs {there are three types:  regular, wheat, and garlic herb} but I just can’t seem to work with it very well.  So, I’m glad this is my last package of it and I’ll be going back to making my own dough in the future :)

I exercised everyday
*I used all my activity points plus all my weekly allowance points and more.  It was definitely not one of my best weeks and I didn’t make the best choices at all.  In fact I pretty much made the worst choices all week long … and we’ll just leave it at that.
