Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? I know it was a lazy one for this girl:
I told you guys that a friend of mine from crossfit wrote up a 7 day meal plan for me, so I followed it this weekend mostly (besides Graeters ice cream Saturday night, and some Mounds on Sunday, lol) Did I mention I have a major sweet tooth!?
These are the bomb by the way!!
But this week I plan on sticking to it 🙂 If I get a sweet tooth at night I will probably allow myself some dark chocolate too!
Here is my meal plan for the week:
- Monday: Chicken and shrimp Fajitas (no fajita- on bed of lettuce) with guacamole
- Tuesday: Spaghetti Squash with turkey meatballs
- Wednesday: TBD- work 12 hrs- Tacos for Boys
- Thursday: Burgers (no bun) with Alexia sweet potato puffs
- Friday: Salmon, sautéed zucchini and squash
- Saturday: Dinner at family summer party
- Sunday: Baked Chicken Thighs, veggie, 1/2 sweet potato
Most of my lunches will be leftovers, but my other options include:
- Tuna Salad/with veggie salad
- Salad with lots of veggies and protein like this one:
- Mixed Nuts
- Protein Shakes
- Raw Carrots/Veggies
- Peanut/Almond Butter
These are only some of my snack options. I also love LUNA Bars, and KIND bars, but they are not on this weekly meal plan.
My fitness plan tends to change a lot so I will just tell you about it as the week goes on. Saturday and Sunday were fun workouts though which I will tell you about!
We worked on our snatch at balancing at the bottom in a squat position which was pretty hard! Then we worked on split jerks with dumbbell which was definitely a work out because we did 5 sets on each leg! The WOD was fun too and I was dripping sweat at the end, I love that feeling! I used a 45# Kettlebell and they were Russian KB swings so the bell only comes to eye level, not overhead.
On Saturday I also went golfing for the first time in like 4 years! We only played 9 holes, but it was so much fun! Look out for more on me and golfing this summer 🙂
I pretty much suck at chest, so to get stronger I really need to work on it at least once a week, so I plan on incorporating that into my workouts If I can. On Sunday I did some chest with a few ab exercises thrown into the mix. The goal was to do three sets of each exercises, increasing in weight each set with a goal of 8-10 reps.
You can check out some of my other Chest exercises on my fitness page too!
Have you ever golfed before?
Happy St. Patty’s Day and Happy Birthday to Miranda! I hope you are wearing your green!
Lily ran when I tried to put any kind of green gear on her!
But then I did manage to get some beads on her. Not Happy!
I have some green on!
Whole wheat sandwich thin with chunky peanut butter and bananas. YUM
As if 13.2 wasn’t hard enough I still practiced push ups and did some ab mat situps after the workout.
After crossfit I came home and made lunch which was a HUGE, and I mean HUGE veggie salad with chicken and avocado. And then I had a pear. And then I had some sea salt pita chips- hungry much!?
See I told you it was HUGE
Dressing- A mix of lemon grapeseed oil, splash of lime juice, some spices and a splash of balsamic.
Homemade dressing is the best. I also prepped dinner in the crockpot too, which I’m sure will be lunch tomorrow since I made TONS of it!
I snacked on some blackberries and cottage cheese straight from the container (shh don’t tell) while waiting for dinner.
