What's cooking this week?

Here we go again - meal prep for week #2 of the 21 Day Fix. Week one went reallyyyyyy well, I made it! The food is spread out so much throughout the day that there isn't really a time where I'm so hungry that I want to die. The only time where I catch myself looking at the clock is right before lunch. Maybe I just need to have my mid morning snack a little later, but it's not like my tummy is growling and I'm about to run off on an eating binge. Honestly, my biggest struggle has been drinking enough water while at work. My work day is so busy I could go hours without drinking anything! I'm trying to be more aware of it, plus my co-workers Sherina and Rachel are doing the same program and we've been trying to remind each other whenever possible. 

Having my food prepped and portioned out prevents me from making bad choices. There are no choices to make, it's all ready to go. Plus, with the amount of time I'm spending planning all of this....I wouldn't want to have done it all for nothing. 

This week I wanted to step it up a notch for dinner. My dinners last week were pretty basic. It didn't bother me too much, but I don't want to start to feel like I'm eating the same boring and bland foods every week. Let's just say last week's lunches excited me way more than dinner. I need something yummy to look forward to later in the day to keep me motivated! For week two I chose two dinners to alternate between that are both very flavorful (starting Monday)! 
Tonight: Baked Ziti for Hubs / Lemon Dijon Grilled Chicken Salad for me
Monday:  21 Day Fix Turkey Chili for me
Tuesday: Ginger Citrus Chicken Stir Fry with Sriracha for me
Wednesday: Baked Ziti for Hubs  / 21 Day Fix Turkey Chili for Me
Thursday: Brats and Pierogies for Hubs / Ginger Citrus Chicken Stir Fry with Sriracha for me
Friday: Steak and Fries for Hubs / 21 Day Fix Turkey Chili for Me

This week seemed a little easier to plan. Stephen is working late a few nights so I didn't have to factor him into the equation on those days. I've got a giant tray of baked ziti left in my freezer from Ella's birthday party. It's probably for the best that Hubs makes it disappear before my 21 days are up...also it's been in there a while so it's time! 

Now I need to figure out how I'm going to prep all of this. Here are a few other recipes I'll be making to enjoy throughout the week:

Obviously you could guess what we're doing today! Between meal prepping you know I'll be playing with my favorite little girly! Look how silly she is on her zebra scooter! She just can't quite figure it out just yet...
Happy Sunday!
