Did you all have a great weekend? Mine was jam packed with work and play, but all in a good way!
Saturday started out with a SOLID workout at the gym. Ran 2.25 miles and felt fully warm for an hour of Bootcamp (which was a combination of strength & cardio that kicked my butt) then managed to pound out 1 more mile, but legs would do no more than that. A shower plus a few errands later and I was back at the gym for a restorative yoga workshop. It was two wonderful hours of stretch and mindfulness. If you’ve never taken restorative yoga, I would highly recommend it. It honestly rejuvenates your body in the same way (or more) as a nap/sleep. I walked away feeling “restored!” and totally ready to tackle this week! Cleaning, organizing, and dinner out followed.
Sunday started with a nice, sweaty strength training session at the gym,
mass, then straight to hot yoga. I recently located a hot yoga studio and have vowed to make it a habit for at least two times per week (trying to fit it in between gym strength & cardio workouts is TOUGH!). This past week I succeeded and I am anxiously looking forward to more! I am thankful to be getting yoga practice back in my life. My body is screaming “Thank you!!”
The rest of Sunday was errands, laundry, and meal prepping/preparing for this new week already upon us.
For this week, I whipped up some lean Asian Chicken Meatballs to go with rice and broccoli for lunches. I also may use them with this good-looking Green Lentil Pasta for a dinner:
Yes – It does say one serving has 21g of protein!!
I also whipped up a variation of egg muffin again this week and also long grain & wild rice for the lunches:
Mostly Egg Whites (3:1 yolk ratio), Spinach, Orange Pepper, Onion, Chopped Hot Turkey Italian Sausage, bit of Mushroom, smidge of Cheese on top each
Long Grain & Wild Rice
A few other tasty buys this weekend at Wegman’s included:
*Blueberries – mmmm,mmmm,good! Thinking about dipping some in vanilla greek Triple Zero yogurt and freezing for a tasty snack!
*Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding – this tasty treat does a nice job of taming my sweet tooth in the evenings with out destroying my calorie goals!
*Ancient Grains Pizza Crust – a splurge! But intend to make BBQ Chicken pizza using grilled chicken, mushroom, jalapeños, and light on the BBQ & cheese.
*Fresh Lemon Dill Hummus – this hummus is awesome! End of story. Most refreshing snack (with carrots) ever!!
*Hot & Spicy Beef Jerky – I don’t dis the beef when it comes to jerky! Each serving packs 15 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fat, and only 90 calories. Girl wants protein and girl doesn’t want tons of calories…enter in the jerky for a good snacking choice!
Seems that I am set go for healthy eats this week, which means there is NO excuse not to keep everything healthy that enters my mouth! Planning ahead and preparing ahead is very helpful. All the above yumminess in addition to my IsoLean Pro Strawberry protein shake, and I am set! Are you preapred with your eats for the week? If not, try to make a game plan this week so you get all you need at the grocery this coming weekend & make it happen for next week. JUST DO IT!
