Plan with Me: Workouts + Meal Plan for the Week (and a Salem update!)


Thank you to everyone who has reached out to send well wishes to my favorite furbaby! I'm so happy to say Salem did great at the vets on Friday and is recovering nicely at home. Salem pre dental

Once he was under anesthesia and the Vet was able to take a better look at things he called me to say three teeth would need to be pulled. I knew he had one in the back that was slightly abscessed so it was disheartening to hear two more would come out, but I know it was for the best. Travis was the one to pick him up and I was surprised that they sent the teeth home with him!

The last time he was under anesthesia, when he was neutered at 7 months old, he had a terrible time recovering from it. I let the Vet know and he gave him extra fluids while under and kept a close eye on him before letting him come home. Even still he was unable to walk steadily until about 24 hours later. It broke my heart to see him trying so hard to get up and around and just falling over himself and walking into doors and walls. He's almost back to normal now. He jumped up onto the couch yesterday and laid down right on top of the baby as I was nursing him. I loved our little family cuddle session.

I spent most of the day yesterday cooking and cleaning. I made these jalapeno chicken taquitos for Travis.  He loves them and they are super easy to make in the slow cooker. They make about 15 large taquitos so enough for 3-4 dinners for him. Next up was this Mexican casserole that we took over to a friends house.



My menu this week is the usual!

Breakfast: Oatmeal (may try another batch of slow cooker steel cut oats)

Lunch: Cauliflower and pea macaroni and cheese

Dinner: Protein smoothie

Snacks: mixed nuts, cheese, crackers, and fruit

In my Happy Planner this week I used an adorable Valentines sticker set from Isabelle the Owl. I love her designs!


Next weekend we are attending our first kids birthday party. What is a good gift idea for a 4 year old girl? IMG_1544

My workout schedule for the week follows my usual rotation:

Monday: Arms and abs

Tuesday: Interval training

Wednesday: Rest

Thursday: Interval training or timed 5k (going to try to go all out and see what my 5k time is)

Friday: Arms + Abs

Saturday: 4 miles

Sunday: Leg day

Isn't that pugicorn sticker amazing?


A new grading project started up for Pearson so I'll be working about 4 hours a day on that. I also need to think of something to do for Travis for Valentines day! I'm slacking. We don't make a big deal out of it but I'd love to make him something, or get him something small.

Do you get your partner anything for Valentines Day? 

Are you doing any meal prepping this weekend?
