Menu Plan 2/27/2012 - 3/2/2012

I was DREADING my weigh-in this morning.  Totally DREADING.  This past week, the doctor put me on a round of Prednisone to try to clear out my ears...totally didn't work.  Anyway, this particularly crappy steroid is often referred to "Pregg-nisone" because it makes you feel pregnant.  Emotions completely out of control, cravings up the yang, water retention, and STARVING.  Yup, that was my fun week.  My poor kiddos and hubby.  I was a wack-job.  And sick.  And a wack-job. 
So, between feeling like I was eating way too much, not drinking enough and yet retaining water, and not really doing much on the "down-side" if you know what I mean, I was sure I would be up this week. 
But guess what?  NOPE!  I have released another 4.4 pounds this week!  YAYYYY!!!!
Now onto the Menu Plan for the week. 

Grilled Steak, Potato Skins, Salad

Crockpot Chile Verde (Mexican Pork Stew), some kind of veggies

Cajun Shrimp Scampi, Veggie Heavy Dirty Brown Rice

Easy Peasy Chicken Legs, Cheesy Cauliflower, Spinach Salad

Make Your Own Pizza Night, Italian Chopped Salad
