Workout Recaps + Meal Planning

Hello and Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Mine was incredibly uneventful, but sometimes that’s not a bad thing.  My husband had to work again, but the girls and I made good use of our gym membership, allowing me to take a couple of group exercise classes and for them to run around too.  Plus, we all hit up the indoor pool as the sun was shining down and pretended as best we could that it was summer!  Also, I finally got a few quality runs in this week, which feels good.  But I was feeling it in some my strength training sessions, which means it’s time to scale back a little there so I don’t hurt myself.  I try keeping up with the twenty something fitness instructors that teach my favorite classes (because I am deeply competitive like that), but I need to do a better job of listening to my body and doing what it can handle. 😉

Here’s what my week looked like:

M – 60 minutes strength training

T – 10 mile treadmill run (avg. 8:30 pace)

W – 45 minutes strength (legs, arms, core)

Th – 5 miles (2.5 at tempo pace)


S – 60 minutes strength training + 60 minutes kickboxing

Su – 6.5 mile run (faster finish, 8:00, 7:42)


And here’s what I’m planning for dinners this week:

M – leftovers (we ate out last night)

T – cheesy potato soup

W – salmon, rice, roasted veggies

Th – veggies burgers + homemade sweet potato fries

F – pizza (homemade or take out, depends on the energy level!)

S – mexican bowls

Su – leftovers

Have a great week everyone!  The sun is shining here and next weekend we may hit 40 degrees, so things are looking up.  I can’t wait to do my long run outside this coming weekend.  Wahoo!
