Oh mannnn I start school tomorrow ahh. it’s snowing out too. It barely has this whole month i’ve been off and now that I have to travel bam, snow. Oh well, snow day?!? 😉
I was having anxiety all week, well actually I still sort of am but am slowly getting over it. My schedule I made in November dropped because stupid drama with credits and financial aid drama and my one class filled up right away. I have to go to another campus without any of my friends that I have been with in these classes for over a year. I was devastated. Plus i’m a baby and don’t like when I don’t know exactly where i’m going and stuff lol.
So today I forced my friend to come with me to see where I would park and stuff and got some of the books I needed. That’s why im starting to get less anxiety about it because everything happens for a reason and it may be off I came in this class. I hope!
So meal planning. I use to be the best at it but would slowly decrease each time and the brown rice I had in the fridge would just go bad, fail. But with school being back and I have an actual okay schedule with the times they’re at this year hopefully it sticks.
I’m fine with breakfast always and lunch is usually just a bunch of snacky things because it’s usually when i’m walking to my next class. Dinner however, since it’s just me eating whatever I cook I get lazy and on my way home always think “oh i’ll pick up chinese or a salad”. Not this week! I went food shopping today and got all my stuff. Most of my dinners are for 2 or more so they’ll last a couple days!
Monday & Tuesday: stuffed peppers
Wednesday & Thursday: sweet potato and black bean soup
Friday: Pizza night at my house, aka I get a salad and usually throw some veggies and a sweet potato on the side
Saturday: wing it. any left overs. My thing with Saturdays is I’m at work all day and go straight to the gym (woohoo I actually went to the gym at night, I deserve a pat on the back! or a doughnut..) so I’m not getting home until 630-7 which is fine to eat dinner at, but im to lazy to ever make anything then I just want to sit down since I just worked 10 hours. I tried to eat before the gym but bringing breakfast, lunch AND dinner to work was kind of annoying. I just gotta plan this day better!
Sunday: same thing I just wing it, I usually go out to eat with my family or something.
I cooked my quinoa for the peppers and cut up enough celery and carrots for the week because I bring them with me for snackage. Also roasted some veggies to throw in my dinners. Ah we shall see!
What makes me happy: Disney movies. Especially the old school ones. Little mermaids my fav but why does ABC family have something against Ariel. Every other movie was on this weekend! They just never get old! I cried last night at Mufasa dieing and probably always will.
What are your secrets to meal planning?!
