Workout Recaps + Meal Planning

Hello and Happy Monday, er Wednesday!  Sorry this post is coming a couple days later than usual.  We’re on spring break this week, although we’re not actually going anywhere.  Nope, my spring beak is being spent in 50 degree rainy and cloudy weather, packing up all our stuff in preparation for our move at the end of the month.  Jealous?! I didn’t think so.  I am trying to do something fun each day with my kiddos though.  On Monday, we had a picnic at a new park.  Yesterday they got a couple of extra hours of “open gym” playtime where they take gymnastics lessons while I squeezed in 12 unbelievably windy miles.  And today, we’re meeting friends at a new indoor pool / water park area.  So I’m hoping to avoid the title of most boring spring break ever despite having to stay put.


Here’s what last week looked like in terms of workouts:

M – Sick (still fighting a nasty cold; it’s gone now!)

T – 8 miles (avg. 8:06)

W – 3 miles + boot camp

Th – 9.5 miles (supposed to be 6 or 7 with a friend, but her planned route was a little longer than we thought – oops!)

F – Off

S – 60 minutes strength training + 60 minutes kickboxing

S – 6 miles (1 with my four year old @10:45 pace, 4 speedy miles @7:10 pace, 1 c/d mile)

Wow, looking back that is more miles than I thought I did last week, which could very well explain why yesterday’s 12 miles felt so darn hard.  Or maybe it was the wind.  Or maybe I’m just looking for excuses. 😉

Here’s the dinner plan for this week:

M – grilled salmon + rice

T – grilled chicken, cheese, and bacon sandwiches with various raw veggies + hummus

W – Crock Pot Sesame Honey Chicken

Th – Stufffed Peppers

F – Quiche

S – leftovers or wing it

I hope you’re all having a great week, maybe enjoying life in a warmer or more fun place?  Oh, and Happy belated Easter.  Here’s a fun picture of my girls from Easter Sunday. 🙂
