THM Menu for Feb. 26 - March 4, 2018

   This the 2nd week of Round 2 of my THM New Habits Challenge. Are you joining us?  I have a FB group page if you would like to join us and keep each other accountable. Or for even more fun use the hashtag #THMnewhabitschallenge2018 on IG and leave a picture.  

   I was watching a neat vlog called Our Tribe of 10 a few weeks back and they were going through THT trying each recipe. I thought what a good idea! I have made almost ALL the recipes in the original book, but not the Trim Healthy Cookbook. I have Trim Healthy Table, but there are SO MANY recipes in Trim Healthy Cookbook that I haven't even tried yet. So, I am going to try cooking a few more from the Cookbook and see how far I get.  I have made some, so I am going to skip over those, but there are SO MANY I have never tried.  What recipes have YOU tried and LOVED?

Breakfasts: - for the shakes and smoothies, I am going to use Kefir instead of cottage cheese and Almond Milk.  I make smoothies almost daily to go along with my breakfast.

This is the "off week" from my THM New Habits Challenge. Next week we will be starting my new THM New Habits Challenge Round 2. Come join us if you need some accountability and encouragement.  I am hoping to try adding a bit more to my IG, but we'll see. I don't always remember to take pictures, but I want to try.

So without further ado, here is my menu for the week. Heavy on the THM Cookbook for supper. Not ALL recipes are from it, but a good portion are.

THM New Habits Challenge 2018

THM New Habits Challenge Round 2

I am wanting to start a few new habits that are THM related this year. Anyone want to join me? The challenge group will run for 6-8 weeks. I am going to pick 3 things to do for 6+ weeks to help me better my THM journey.  Anyone want to join me?  We will start our next challenge on February 18 and end ,March 31, 2018.  THM does not manage or endorse the group’s content.


For the next 6 weeks I want to be consistent in:

-Weekly Meal Prepping.
-Eating Okra at least 3 times a week

-Eat 3 Deep S meals a week. - these can include Skinny Chocolate


If this is something you want to join in and keep me accountable, there are 2 ways to do it. Join my FB challenge group or on IG #THMnewhabitschallenge2018.  If you want to join the group I will expect you to check in weekly with pictures or participating in discussions. I want the group to help keep me be accountable. So if you don't plan to post weekly, the IG challenge might be a better fit.  All you need to "join" is posting a picture of your prepping or meal to keep each other encouraged to keep going.  This group is about building new habits to help us in our journey. If we mess up, that is ok. Just restart again in 3 hours.

Once this challenge is over I will hopefully have 3 new habits along with you! I will have a new set of 3 habits for the next 6 weeks.

So who is in with me????  I will be posting my progress with meeting my 3 new habits and also some suggestion and encouragement to keep us going.


So for those of you who did Round 1 with me, how did you do?  Please leave your comments below. I want to hear how we all did!

I can say I did well with 2 of the challenges, but I struggled with meal prepping the most. I do a meal prep for my husband, but his is so restrictive I really can't see it working for me. So, I do his and end up leaving mine for later, and it doesn't get finished. I need to step up my game and just DO IT.  I did eat greens almost daily, but after I started I realized I really wanted to add more Okra, so I am going to do it again THIS time to make sure the habit sticks.

February is here. Shortest month of the year. So lets put it to good use.

THM Menu for Jan 29 - Feb. 4, 2018

February ladies!  Yes it sure is. Whew. January is fast leaving us isn't it? I think I might need to slooooow down time here. I adore winter and February is sneaking my winter away. ;-)

So how are you doing?  I am going to be doing some simple easy things this week. Not sure how things will go down. Prayers appreciated if you have extra time to say one for myself and my children this week.

We are in the last 2 weeks of my NEW HABITS CHALLENGE.  I have done fairly well after I finally kicked the stomach FLU to the curb last week.  I always struggle with it. Not so much the throw up stuff, but what comes after seems to stick around FOREVER!  The headache/migraines are still bothering me, but I am able to function more instead of being in bed and in pain all day.

So my simplified menu:

Breakfast:
Vanilla Kefir - FP
Pineapple Coconut Kefir - THM E - I will use Coconut extract
Chocolate Granola - THM E

Lunch:
Tuna, beans, and salsa - THM E and FP depending on amounts
Canned Chicken, kale, and avocado - THM S
Lime Butternut Squash Soup - THM E I am only using half the amount of butter. 

Snack:
Lily's Chocolate with Pecans - THM S
Popcorn with Kefir - THM E
Cottage Cheese with PB and sprinkle of cocoa nubs- THM FP

Dinner:
Chicken and Red Bean Enchiladas - THM S using low carb tortillas

Cumin Rubbed Chicken Black Bean with Corn - THM - E



Whistle wetters:
