Food Prep, Weekly Meal Plan, and Workout Plan

I finally made a Pinterest site for the blog! It is still a work in progress, but I started organizing it this weekend. I made a board for ‘’This Week’s Meals” where I will save everything I plan to make that week, and then move it to another board if I like it and want to make it again. Check out my Pinterest page here:

So here is my meal plan for this upcoming week:

Sunday: Baked salmon (I don’t follow a recipe, I just top it with olive oil and seasoning), cous cous, veggies (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower)

Monday: Spaghetti Squash Lasanga, Salad After buying the squash and starting to prep it on Sunday, it exploded in the microwave. So I had to adjust the recipe and used penne instead of squash.

Tuesday: Turkey burgers, sweet potatoes, green beans

Wednesday:  Italian Quinoa Bowl

Thursday: Parmesan Crusted Chicken  This is Rob’s favorite meal. I have made some changes to it over the many times I have made it.

Friday: Pasta, turkey meatballs, salad

Saturday: Out to dinner for Mother’s Day

Food Prep:

I washed up some kale and pulled off the stems, to freeze and use in smoothies this week.

kaleI also cut up pineapple to use in this smoothie, and peeled some bananas. Both will also go in the freezer.

As I said above, there was an explosion of the spaghetti squash in my microwave.

I made the recipe with penne because that’s what we had…not as healthy but oh well!

I made turkey meatballs to keep in the freezer (I made 16, and split them into 2 containers of 8).

And of course we needed something sweet for this week. I baked these cookies but subbed 1/2 for the butter for 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt.

I also came up with a workout plan since I am trying to include more yoga into my routine while I have this month membership:

        Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday         Thursday Friday Saturday
AM rest 4 miles 5 miles Elliptical, body pump, cx works 5 miles 3 miles 11-12 miles
PM rest Body Pump Yoga Runners core DVD Yoga
The miles are just a guideline. I would like to get back to doing about 30 miles a week and then once I a feeling good I’ll start adding some tempos/speed work in.
