Body Beast Week 2 Meal Plan

I got pretty busy the end of the week and missed out on a few days of my Body Beast daily diary.  But don't you worry - I'm going to make up for it today.  I'm going to split this into 2 posts though, so it's easier to read.  This post - it's all about the food.

Week 1 meals were pretty awesome.  There was nothing I really disliked.  All recipes from last week were from the Book of the Beast (the nutrition plan from Body Beast).  This week I had to mix it up a little bit so I could have enough food.  I did stick to all Beachbody nutrition guides though.  I have so many and since I have skipped around with meal plans I have a lot of recipes I have never made.  In my meal plan outline below I have the program nutrition plan the recipe came from listed with a link to the program. 

Day A:

  • Shakeology w/ banana, unsweetened almond milk, ice
  • Sunrise Quasadilla (Chalene Extreme) + Fruit
  • Egg Salad Sandwich (Body Beast) + Fruit
  • Rice with Lentils and Red Peppers (Focus T25)
  • Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry (Body Beast) + Rice

Day B:

  • Shakeology w/ banana, unsweetened almond milk, ice
  • Egg Muffins (based on a recipe in Body Beast) + fruit
  • Italian Style Roasted Vegetables + Sweet and Sour Meatballs (both from Thin Kitchen, sauce omitted from the meatballs)
  • Asparagus Blue Cheese Salad (w/ goat cheese instead) and Black Eye Pea Salad (both from Thin Kitchen)
  • Power Turkey Meatloaf (Body Beast) and Roasted Potatoes

I spent HOURS today working on food.  To be honest, about half way through I started wondering WTF was I doing.  Was it worth it to spend so much time working on this?  But I decided that yes...yes it is worth it.  It's worth it because last week I was down 7 lbs.  It's worth it because I didn't fight myself on food choices daily since I spent the time necessary to find and execute delicious recipes.  It's worth it because it was the easiest week ever. 

This weekend I ate some modified menus.  I didn't have all the portions of everything because mid-week the hubby jumped on my delicious food.  But I still stayed on track.  So that to me indicated I can do this w/o a plan on days I need to adjust on the fly.  Usually my weekends are basically me setting fire to my good work.  This weekend it was not that way, which was a huge reason I can sit here now with a goofy grin on my face that I actually might make this elusive goal of mine of getting to a healthy weight.
