It’s back. The Weekly Menu and Workouts post. I stopped writing them when I was pregnant. At first because I didn’t even want to THINK about food and my workouts were so sporadic it didn’t make sense to write out a plan. But then I started meal planning and working out regularly again and just got lazy. Now that E is here… well, I have no excuses. I mean besides the 3 kids things. It’s probably a valid excuse, but they need to eat and I need to workout to stay sane.
I actually don’t know if anyone ever read these posts (except my mom – hi Mom!), but I like writing them up because it helps me remember what we are eating and it encourages me to stick with my workout plan. My workouts will still be pretty sporadic, but I’m hoping to get in at least 2 a week. I will be impressed if I can do more than that the next 3-4 months.
The weekly menu (in no particular order)…
- Rotisserie Chicken (from Publix) and Sweet Potato Fries
- Southwest Salad with Cilantro Dressing
- Coconut Lime Chicken and Corn on the Cob
- Broiled Salmon, Broccoli, and Rice
- Asian Quinoa Salad
- *Birthday Dinner* (haven’t decided exactly what that is yet!)
And the workouts…
Tuesday – HIIT Lean Modified Workout + Abs
Wednesday – RUN!!! + Abs
Thursday or Friday – At Home Circuit Workout (did this one on Friday last week too – and it kicked my butt, in a good way!)
Sunday – Spin Class (maybe) + Abs
This is all assumingI get the go-ahead tomorrow. Well, the running and spinning part is.
So the plan for running is to try for 3 miles on Wednesday and then go from there. I will be running on the treadmill this week because I am not fully ready to wake up at the ass crack of dawn (unless I’m already awake thanks to a certain little someone and I’m really crazy). Oh and I intend to take walk breaks when needed! I also want to fit in 2 strength workouts this week and I MAY go to spin on Sunday if I’m up to it. Depends on how sore I am, how tired I am, and how E is feeling.
I know I said I am expecting to do 2-3 workouts a week – and that’s true. If I get more in this week it’s because I’m overzealous. I’m REALLY excited to get back, but I also don’t want to be REALLY sore and regret anything. Really the ONLY thing I want to squeeze in this week is a run. Everything else is just bonus.
Sooo….what’s on your menu this week?
