I hope you’re all enjoying your Easter holiday. Matt and I are staying home and enjoying a smoked pork tenderloin. Matt is the master smoker in our home, of meats anyways. Since I was so lazy last week I am on my game for this week. I seriously felt so lost! I know, I’m ridiculous. My Whole30 ends on Tuesday which means I get to eat some cheese on Wednesday!!! I could also technically eat some ice cream but I’m going to avoid anything super sugary for as long as possible. For some reason I crave cake hardcore and it’s not even something that I like all that much, so even though I don’t have intense sugar cravings at night I think it’s best to not rock the boat. So I’m planning on eating some dairy on Wednesday and then eating Whole30 style until Saturday. Fingers crossed that I don’t have any side affects! Then on Saturday I’ll test out non-gluten grains. This is timed perfectly because we’re going to a Hibachi restaurant Saturday night for a friend’s b-day and I don’t know how I would avoid rice, or alcohol. I’m equally excited and terrified to try out the eliminated foods. It’ll be nice to ease up on the ingredients we can use but I really don’t want to be bloated and foggy headed and feel gross. I really do want to know what foods don’t agree with me so I can avoid them.
I’m pretty excited for the meals we have planned this week, mostly because they’re tried and true favorites. (TACOS!!!)
Monday~ Easter dinner leftovers
Tuesday~ Orange Brown Butter Shrimp over Salad
Wednesday~ Tacos in Lettuce Wraps with Cauliflower Coconut Lime Rice
Thursday~ Baked Garlic Mushroom Chicken Thighs with Green Beans coated in Coconut Oil and Slivered Almonds
Friday~ Italian Wedding Soup
Sunday~ Grilling Skewers (if the weather allows)
You can find all these recipes on my “Healthy Eats” board on Pinterest.
I was the biggest slacker when it came to exercise last week. I just didn’t feel like doing anything, so I didn’t. I think sometimes it’s good to take a little break and let your body chill. I ran 5 miles on Monday after work and shaved some time off of my pace. It was a great run! Then the weather turned colder and it snowed and my motivation died. I went to Zumba on Wednesday and I haven’t done anything since. So now I’m missing my weights! I want to do two strength workouts a week in addition to running 4 times and my weekly Zumba class. I think that should be a good balance.
Sunday~ 10 mile run
Monday~ 3 mile run and compound workout
Tuesday~ 5 mile run
Wednesday~ 3 mile run and Zumba
Thursday~ workout at PFit
Friday~ rest/ possibly do Pilates DVD
Matt just pulled a beer bread out of the oven so that’s my cue to go do my run. 😉 Wish me luck! What are your fitness plans? Do have any strength workouts that you’d like to share?
