Manu Plan Monday: Week of January 6th, 2014

It is a new year, time for those resolutions.  I have been using that Lose It app to keep track of my carbohydrate intake.  Sticking to less than 20 grams is TOUGH..... #bossup (haha, can you tell I have been hanging around 20 somethings for too long?).  That lose it app has me at 1342 total calories a day.  WOW!  Sucks being short, female and old.  LOL.  The hubs gets 2500....  (can you tell I am jealous)? I have been holding steady since you last talked to me.  I have not really gained but maybe 5 pounds over the Christmas holiday.  Alcohol has way too many sugars and carbs folks.  I have already lost 3 pounds of those five.  However, January I am trying to be really strict.  Mainly because its resolution time and I have never really gotten down to my healthy BMI.  I stayed just 10 pounds away from it regardless of all the physical labor my new landscaping job requires.  That is why I am introducing the lose it app.  It is really enlightening me to my eating habit flaws. I am starting to see just how many carbs I really was eating.  And just how many you are allowed to eat on the Paleo diet.  I was really over doing it in the carb department. So now I am a Paleo and Low carb hybrid. I plan to join the gym too so I can target some of my problem areas. Okay? Ok, enough of that.  Here is my low carb paleo hybrid menu:

Low Carb Pizza and Caesar Salad

Fried Pork Chops, Spinach & Broccoli

Pan Fried New York Strip Steaks served with Sauteed Mushrooms and Broccoli

Crustless Quiche Lorraine served with Caesar Salad (with Low Carb dressing)


Herb Roasted Chicken Breasts, Cauliflower Rice & Broccoli

Honey Baked Ham with Spiced Apples & Easy Mayo Cole Slaw

Turkey & Vegetable Alfredo Casserole (diced turkey and Ragu light Parmesan Alfredo pasta sauce, tossed with diced veggies [broccoli, zucchini, spinach])
