Weekday Dinner Plan

Can I get wahoo for daylight savings time and having an extra hour to sleep in this morning? Glorious!

We spent last night at my in-law’s house in Virginia, and saw the most gorgeous fall foliage when driving home this morning. I love this time of year!

As I mentioned in my last Five on Friday post, I’m starting Weight Watchers this week, so I’m officially back on the healthy eating wagon full time. We already eat pretty well most nights, but I can definitely do more when it comes to portion control and making better decisions when we go out. And with the holidays coming up, having the weekly accountability will be helpful!

Shaun has games on Thursday and Friday nights this week, so I’m only making dinner Monday and Wednesday and will have leftovers the rest of the week.

  • Monday: Easy Slow Cooker Jalepeno Chicken, served with black beans and brown rice {easiest recipe ever, simply put 2-3 large chicken breasts in greased crockpot, cover with one jar of Mrs. Renfro’s Jalepeno Green Salsa or similar, add a dash of garlic salt and tablespoon of fresh lime juice, and cook on high 3-4 hours before shredding and serving}
  • Tuesday: {Leftover} Easy Slow Cooker Jalepeno Chicken
  • Wednesday: Stuffed Pepper Soup

I am a big fan of Cooking Light and Skinny Taste for healthier recipes — any other recommendations?

In terms of working out, here are my goals for the week:

  • Monday: Spin
  • Tuesday: Yoga {my gym is finally offering a beginners class!}
  • Wednesday: Zumba
  • Thursday: 2-mile outdoor run {optional, not going to push it if I’m not up for it)

Enjoy the rest of your evening. Let’s go Ravens!!


  1. Woo great goals, I have always wanted to try yoga. I am considering a new Pilates class though!

    • I did Pilates for a couple years when I was right out of college and LOVED it! I did the reformer kind, but know folks also like mat. Highly recommend it! :)
