Workout Recaps + Meal Planning

Happy Monday everyone!  This past week was crazy busy in our home.  My husband and I have been very intentional about taking steps to live more simply recently, and we definitely took a huge leap this past week.  But that leap involved lots of work that I had not planned on, so I apologize for being a slacker on blogging lately.  Like much of the country, we are still dealing with lots of snow and chilly temperatures, so I didn’t get to do any running outside this past week.  And the forecast for the coming week is similarly cold.  Blah!  I promise you I will not be complaining about hot and humid temperatures this summer!

But here’s a look at what I did do:


M – 60 minutes strength training

T – 4 easy miles

W – Group session with our personal trainer

Th – Total Conditioning class + chest presses and pullups

F – Off

S – 60 minutes strength training + 60 minutes kickboxing

Su – 6 mile run with 2.5 miles @ tempo pace

As you can see, I just haven’t been feeling the treadmill miles recently, but I know I need to get over it and just do it!  I’ve still got plenty of time before my 25k race in May, but I need to be more consistent with my mileage, and my long runs.  Oops!

As far as meal plans for this week, here’s what I’m thinking:

M – chili in the crock pot + GF corn bread muffins (Mondays are almost always a crock pot meal because my girls have gymnastics until almost 6:00 and then EVERYONE comes home starving!)

T – veggie burgers + sweet potato fries

W – steak burrito bowls

Th – homemade pizza

F – leftovers

S – take out

Su – honey glazed salmon + roasted veggies
