January 5th… the day of my resolution.

I need to lose 20 pounds by April 5th.

Why? Because I said so… Because my pants demand it, because I need to make sure to keep up with my kids, my friends and my lovely boyfriend and I need to know that I am in the best shape of my life. My parents started in their 30’s and they are still young at heart.

My nemesis… food, Oh.. and my stomach. See. I love food. I love to cook, I love to eat, I love to feed people and I really like the feel of a full tummy, my computer chair… and my cooshy buttocks on the padded seat.

… Clothing. See… my jeans don’t like the full tummy, that tummy likes to hang over my sexy girl jeans! So.. I must make it go away, because it is not so sexy to have the muffin top!

I must start with my food and I must plan out my meals to keep myself from faltering:

Here is my menu for the week:

Monday: Chicken Caesar Pitas

Tuesday: Bacon Wrapped Apple BBQ Chicken

Wednesday: Little Dipper Pizza Fondue Recipe (This is for the kids)

Thursday: CrockPot Salsa Chicken Recipe

Friday: Free day, everyone eats whatever they want!

Saturday: Grilled Chicken, Broccoli, Fruit and Rolls

Sunday: Chicken Tacos, Spanish rice and beans

I’ll try to put up pictures as much as I can, I am also going to get advice from one of the National Body Challenge competitors, Chef Amy on how to get the recipes more low fat. She offered her help yesterday and has lost a lot of weight already!

On Wednesday and Friday I will be at Dave’s house for dinner, so I’ll let you know what he spoiled me with.

Thank you to A Year of Crockpotting and $5 dinners for my recipe ideas for the week!
