My Trim Healthy Mama (THM) Meal Plan

Today in my scheduling series, I will share how I am getting back on board with Trim Healthy Mama by sharing my week of menu plans. I would like to get into the habit of posting my menus on here every week, as well as my grocery lists so you can see how to eat this way without breaking the bank.

I always have coffee with stevia and half & half with breakfast, good girl moonshine or kombucha with lunch, and tea with my night time snack.

I started this menu yesterday so it starts from yesterday and goes through Monday. Book page numbers are in parentheses and recipes not in the book are linked to the source I found them from. 

  • TuesdayBreakfast: 2 fried eggs Lunch: romaine salad with chopped up hardboiled eggs and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) Snack: greek yogurt with 1/2 banana Dinner: organic baby kale with tuna and EVOO   Snack: string cheese

Longing for a comfortable flow…

 

I have been searching for a way to be more consistent. To put more of a flow to our days.

I’ve tried hourly scheduling, but then I feel like I am putting God in a box. If one thing goes unplanned it throws me off and I scrap the whole thing.

I’ve tried to-do lists, but then I end up limiting myself to that list. I can’t exactly list everything I need to tend to that day. It just doesn’t seem right to put spending time with my kids on a list.

I’ve tried FlyLady and it overwhelms me. I’ve tried MOTH and it’s just too rigid.

And still…..this nagging feeling inside to have more structure, more purpose, more intentionality…..it persists.

So I am going to use this new platform as a way to try and satisfy that longing in a public way. I will share what I am doing, how I am doing and what is or isn’t working.

I have actually heard from a couple of friends that they are in the same boat. Lacking that consistency and knowing their lives and homes would be more blessed if they could get into a groove. So I am hoping to make this an interactive journey. One where we can learn from one another and get better on track in our day to day lives together.

What works for you? What isn’t working? What unique challenges do you have that you need to overcome to get into more of a flow? Please post your comments below and let’s encourage one another in this season of becoming more intentional.

Stay tuned later today for my first post about my new plans. Or better yet….scroll to the bottom of this page and subscribe to get my new posts via email!
