Last weekend I was away, so meal prep didn’t happen. But I still came up with a meal plan! (Sort of.) I used a napkin at the airport bar to write down some easy meals for the week and then jotted out a grocery list. I then placed an online order for groceries to pick up the next day after work. Well worth the $4 surcharge if you ask me.
Monday: got carry-out from a bar near Rob’s office (I had PT at 6pm and Rob was getting home late, so no time to cook)
Tuesday: grilled chicken, baked potatoes, green beans (we wanted to have chicken to use in salads for lunches so Rob cooked a bunch of chicken while I was at PT)
Wednesday: turkey burgers, sweet potato fries, broccoli/cauliflower/carrot mix
Thursday: chicken thighs baked with red potatoes and veggies
Friday: pasta, turkey meatballs, salad (I had meatballs in the freezer from when I made extras two weeks ago. And I meant to buy a spaghetti squash but forgot, so pasta it was.)
Saturday: Got steaks, mashed potatoes, and some kind of spinach/orzo salad from Whole Foods and stayed in to celebrate Valentines Day
Luckily I had some things in the freezer for breakfasts and lunches. It was still kind of tough on Monday when we hadn’t been to the store yet, but it worked out ok.
Since I don’t have any prep to share, and I skipped my weekly workouts last week, I thought I would just share an update on what I’ve been doing. If you notice below, I got some “Suz workouts” in there. Luckily she has been really flexible working with me while I’m dealing with all this PT stuff:) Also, I guess 22 miles seems to me my comfortable mileage right now. Is that what happens when you stop obsessing about the numbers and just run?
