Happy Monday! Hope you all had a nice weekend and are ready for a good start to the week. It was another soggy weekend here in Maryland…we spent a good deal of time watching movies (trying to catch up on my Star Wars) and reading. Hopefully my lack of activity will not prevent the scale from moving this week!
I was able to lose one pound last week following my Trim Healthy Mama plan. I’m still about 15 pounds away from my goal weight, and it seems like these last few pounds are coming off super slowly. But I do feel so much better overall when I eat this way, so that is a good motivator to keep going.
This week our family has a few activities that will take us out at dinner time, so I used some help from the grocery store and bought two rotisserie chickens to use in a couple recipes. With the protein already cooked and shredded, it will help me to get dinner on the table quickly.
I made another quick video of my THM grocery haul for this week:

I’ve taken most of my dinners from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook (affiliate link). We’ve been using this cookbook for practically all our meals for the past few months and we love everything we’ve tried so far.
