    All your meals this week look outstanding. I, too, had salmon. So good! And one night, my parents had us over for dinner–they grilled shrimp and scallops with onions and peppers. It was awesome!

      I love grilled seafood. That’s the best. Did they marinade it in anything?

    Grilled cheese is also our go-to meal when no one feels like cooking. Getting a little sandwich press was the best investment ever!

      I love grilled cheese. Total comfort food I give in to once in awhile.

    I’ve been obsessed with ground turkey lately: turkey burgers, turkey tacos, and my personal fave-turkey meatballs. I put little pieces of string cheese inside them before I stick the meatballs in the oven and the choose is all gooey and fabulous.
    I found something I want to share with you and your lovely blog readers-I hope this is ok! Let me preface this by saying I don’t work for the company, but these have really helped me in my own weight loss/health journey-they are called the Measure Up Bowl. They are ceramic bowls which have portion measurements on the inside of the bowl. So you don’t have to measure a serving of ice cream and then put it in the bowl. Brilliant right?! They are pretty inexpensive, and created by a woman who lost 83 pounds through exercise and food journaling. They have helped me, and thought they may help others. 🙂

      Hi Jennifer – We eat a lot of ground turkey– taco salads, turkey burgers, etc. Thanks for the tip on the string cheese. Great idea!

      I’ve seen bowls and plates like that, where you know exactly what a serving is. I’ve wanted to get some. They are so cool.

    Just 2 things, I’m not sure if you know…

    1. You shouldn’t work the same muscles weight lifting 2 days in a row. Upper then lower is fine, but not 2 days of full body in a row. Your muscles need time (at least a full day off) to heal.

    2. HRM aren’t designed to measure calories burned through anything other than cardio exercise. The number you get for weight lifting is highly inflated because it is using the HRM for something that it isn’t supposed to do. It is very hard to calculate calories burned outside of a lab setting.

    Hope this helps!

      I usually don’t lift weights two days in a row. It just worked out that way and no, I didn’t do the same muscles. I switched it up.
