It’s been quite some time since I posted  my meal plan and fitness schedule for the week.  To be honest, I just haven’t been planning it out, which basically means I’ve been leaving it to chance and what I felt like doing at the time.  This is never good.  I don’t end up pushing myself physically and my meals end up being something thrown together followed by a boat load of chocolate.  So I’m back on the planning bus.


Monday- Steak with mushrooms and onions, fresh corn

Tuesday- Lemon roasted chicken and vegetables from the cookbook Against All Grain pg. 212

Wednesday-Sesame Crusted Salmon from the blog Primally Inspired

Thursday- Prosciutto Wrapped Pesto Chicken with Roasted Tomatoes from the blog Primally Inspired

Friday- Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos from the cookbook Against All Grain

pg. 200

Lunch to go

chicken salad made from leftover roasted chicken

chopped green salad


Sunday- 2.31 mile run (super proud of myself for getting back out there!)

Monday- Miner Combat (super excited for a new wonderful trainer!)

Tuesday-Yoga flow (how long have I been saying I want to get into yoga?  I’m finally doing it!)

Wednesday- Zumba (my favorite!)

Thurday-Rest day

Friday- Run or Buti fitness DVD




Hey guys!  How did your week go?  Were you affected by hurricane Sandy?  I hope you all are doing ok.  If not I hope everything gets put back together real soon!

I am really liking having my meals all planned out.  I know what I need to pick up at the grocery store and that means I only need to make one grocery stop.  Which means I have more time for myself on my “day off”.  Without further ado here is my meal plan for this week.

Meal Plan

Monday~ Going out for Mexican with Friends

Tuesday~ Coconut Chicken and Curried Cauliflower with peas and onions

Wednesday~ Enchilada Pie

Thursday~ Pepper Jelly Pork Chops & Acorn Squash

Friday~ Turkey Stroganoff over Brown Rice

Saturday~ Rotisserie Chicken with Roasted Potatoes and Carrots

Sunday~ Tortilla Soup and Cornbread

I want to talk about how my fitness plan worked out for me last week.  I am really trying to be realisitc about my time and how much energy I have and what that means in terms of what I could do to get in a good amount of exercise while also challenging myself.  This is what I had planned for last week and what I actually did.

Fitness Plan

Monday~ Zumba and Toning (Zumba at home and an upper body circuit done 3xs.)

Tuesday~Kickboxing and Zumba (Kickboxing, Zumba and 2 Toning Songs)

Wednesday~ Zumba, free weights (Zumba, way too sore from the day before for weights)

Thursday~ HIIT on treadmill and abs (Took the day off and rested)

Friday~ Kickboxing (Kickboxing)

Saturday~ Rest/ Stretch (Rested)

Sunday~ MUD RUN!!!  (Can’t believe it’s in a week!) (I FINISHED the mud run!) more on that soon

I feel like I did a great job of sticking to my plan and litstening to my body when it needed to rest.  So hopefully I’ll kill it again this week.  In addition to this plan I hope to get back into taking Punky for our morning walks.  Thank-you Daylight Savings for delivering me light in the morning.
