Hi Friends! How is your weekend going? Mine’s going well, just finished a long run (recap tomorrow) and looking forward to an easy relaxed Sunday! Real quick here were my groceries I picked up this week!
This week’s meal plan is a little different because Mr. Hungry has a week off work before he starts a new job! I’m so proud of him for all his hard work and so happy he got the job he wanted. What does he do? You know how in Friends, Monica never really could figure out what Chandler did? Yeah, it’s kind of like that….. financial/data analyst in healthcare… sort of and that is as far as I can explain. Right when I somewhat understood what he did at his last job, now it will be a while till I fully understand the new job. Since he has the week off he offered to make dinner most days of the week, which I thought was great! His meal plan isn’t much different from what I normally make, but I’m excited to have the week off from dinner duty.
the usuals for me…..
– banana, almond butter, quesadillas
– low fat cottage cheese, berries, nuts, honey
For him- eggs, yogurt, fruit, apple butter braid, protein bars etc
– Sprouts frozen pizza (for Mr. Hungry)
– sandwiches (egg, deli turkey, grilled cheese etc)
– salads, leftovers etc…
Sunday- Green Curry Turkey Burgers (I’ll let you know how they turn out)
Monday- Steak Tacos
Tuesday- Mahi Burgers and Veggies/Salad
Wednesday- Salmon and Veggies
Thursday- Smoothies or Egg Sandwiches
Friday- leftovers (eating out for lunch will most likely have leftovers)
Saturday– wing it
I think I’ve finally decided that I’m really a two full days off type person. My body responds well to days off and I need to stop pushing it, even with hot yoga. I read an article in one of my magazines (it was a long time ago when we lived in the apartment so 2-3 months at least) that said something about people that did 4 high intensity mixed workouts per week (for an hour ?)were less stressed and closer to their fitness goals than those that trained 6 days a week. Bust your but 4 days a week instead of half assing it 6 days a week, makes sense to me. That’s what I used to do when I was running and going to crossfit and it worked out well. I got into trouble when I started trying to throw in another run or crossfit day….. so here is what is on the plan….
S- Long Run – 6 miles done!
M- Hot Yoga/Light Cross
T- Run and with Functional Strength Training
R- Run (HIIT) and upper body strength
F- Summer Shape Up Workout #2 or other Total Body Circuit with pylometrics
Have a great weekend!
