Whoa, December 1st already?! Where did November go??
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve written out my food and fitness for the upcoming week, so let’s back on it this morning!
Here’s what I have planned for dinners:
- Chicken Fajitas with rice
- Mini Salsa & White Bean Loaves with steamed broccoli
- Chicken, Bacon, & Artichoke Pasta with Creamy Garlic Sauce
- Simple Split Pea Soup
- Leftovers/wing it
- Dinner out
Grocery Store List:
- Clementines aka Cuties (YAY for clementine season!)
- Bell pepper
- Yellow onion
- Green onions
- Sweet potatoes
- Split peas
- Artichoke hearts
- Chicken broth
- White beans
- Mexican rice
- Whole wheat penne pasta
- Whole wheat tortillas
Next up, my fitness plan for the week… Of course all things are tentative, but I’m hoping they’ll look this way:
M – Cardio Mish Mash (AKA whatever I’m feeling at the gym)
Tu – Power Pump Class
W – Easy Elliptical Workout (AKA taking it easy and watching TV)
Th – Rest
F – Sara Haley’s Sweat Unlimited DVD – Strength Workout
Sa – Power Pump Class
Su – Rest
When creating my workout plan for the week, I aim for a few things:
- Strength workouts 2-3 times per week (Ideally 3x)
- Strength workouts not on back-to-back days
- 2 days of cardio – nothing crazy though
Of course these don’t always happen… Take this week for example – I really wanted to get in three days of strength, but because of my plans this week, I’ll have to do two days in a row of strength workouts. It happens! I just try to go with the flow the best I can while still having a “plan” in the back of my head.
Alright, I’m signing off! Gotta get to church!
Have a great Sunday!
