Plan With Me: Meal Plan + Workout Plan for the Week

IMG_1507.jpg

Happy Sunday! I remembered to take a photo of my fitness planner spread this week. I could decorate every week in a pink and gold color scheme and never get bored with it. I saw a cute unicorn sticker sheet for $1 at Walmart last week and had to buy it. So, I decided to use it under "goals" because that's my goal this week. Become a unicorn. IMG_1507

My workout schedule for the week:

Monday: upper body + abs

Tuesday: speed intervals

Wednesdsy: rest

Thursdsy: speed intervals

Friday: Barre

Saturdsy: 5k

Sunday: Leg day

I have been following a similar workout pattern for a few weeks now and really like it. Cardio 3x a week, strength 2x and one day for a lengthening/stretching workout. I am planning on adding just a few minutes of core/arm work on one or two of my cardio days. I've still got a mommy pouch I'd like to tone up some more.

For my main planner I used a sticker sheet from Isabelle the Owl on etsy to decorate. IMG_1513

I'm still trying to figure out how to take nice photos with very little natural light! I can't wait until it's summer here and light out 20 hours a day. IMG_1515

After last week full of appointments I'm glad this week has little on the agenda. I start another grading project with Pearson this week so I'll be training as of Thursday. I love the extra money it brings in but I'm glad the projects only last a few weeks as it's hard to fit another 20 hours of work in each week! IMG_1517

Meals will be quick and easy this week.

Breakfast: oatmeal + mothers milk tea

Lunch: greek salad or burrito bowls

Dinner: giant protein smoothie

Snacks: hard boiled eggs, trail mix, yogurt and fruit.

For greek salads I throw in green olives, red onion, feta and I microwave a vegetarian sausage to cut up and throw on top. Burrito bowls consist of brown rice, black beans, olives, onion and tomatoes on a huge bed of lettuce and topped with buffalo ranch dressing. My smoothies are always premier protein powder, 1 giant handful spinach, 1 frozen banana, ice, almond milk, 2 T cocoa powder and a squirt of honey.

I will be cooking later in the week as part of a meal train for a military family in Travis's unit. The wife is pregnant and flying to California next week to await the birth of their baby as it has to go immediately into surgery. I can't even imagine. I'm so glad there's something I can do to help, even if it's as small as taking over a meal. I'll be making a Mexican casserole and bringing chips, salsa, and stuff to make root beer floats.

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! We've had a busy one. Salems vet appointment didn't go too well yesterday and I chopped off a few inches of my hair (at a salon on Santa Clause lane in North Pole, Alaska.) I'll be back tomorrow to share more about Salem!

How is your weekend going?
