Weeks 2 to 12

Substitute eating out with a home cooked meal!

Guidelines:
Each week, I want to see everyone physically cook at least three home made meals. There are so many amazing recipes on this website if you have no idea what to make, and a lot of them are really inexpensive, if that might be an issue. Cooking your own food gives you a great indication on what exactly is going into your body. If you want to make THREE home made meals or TWENTY home made meals, that is entirely up to you, but I once you decide and cook your meal of choice, I want you to post the recipe and share! I think sharing something new we've learned will keep everyone on the right track! Let's heat up those burners!

What you are doing is what I am doing too. However, I reverted to bad habits of eating past full and downing the high calorie stuff. I thought I had the good habits in the bag, but those bad ones crept ...
