My schedule has been all thrown off this week! I’m not sure why, but I just didn’t find the time for blogging and once I fell behind it was really hard to get caught up. It was a nice little break though, especially since without running I have been having a harder time coming up with posts. I don’t want to constantly complain about injury-related stuff so for now it’s just felt more natural to blog a few days a week. At some point maybe I will have more to say again, but it also depends on time…I have a feeling that the upcoming move will be pretty time consuming!
Anyway, I thought I share my meal planning and prep from last week along with my workouts.
Sunday: 30 minutes swimming
Monday: Strength training and PT
Tuesday: 30 minutes swimming, 90 minutes yoga
Wednesday: 10 minutes elliptical, Body Pump
Thursday: 30 minutes swimming and PT
Friday: 10 minutes elliptical, Body Pump
Saturday: 45 mins pool running(!!!) and 15 minutes swimming, 10 minutes core
Yes you read that right, I did some pool running on Saturday! I got to the gym right before the pool opened at 7am and ended up being the only one in the pool until 7:45. Pool running is BORING but easier than swimming. Although I think the swimming is improving very slowly.
I took yoga and body pump again for the first time in awhile this week. I’ve learned that I can do these activities very carefully. My hips have been staying where they are supposed to lately, which is definitely a huge step in the right direction. I’ve been using VERY low weight in body pump and focusing on using perfect form. I also tried a different elliptical and found that it felt better than the one I tried a few weeks ago.
Now, for last week’s meals:
Sunday: Blacked chicken and cucumber salad (I have a handwritten recipe from years ago, so no link, but if you want to try it let me know and I’ll take a picture of it or something)
Monday: Chicken fajitas
Tuesday: Crispy chicken and quinoa salad
Wednesday: Burgers, sweet potato fries, mixed veggies
Thursday: Pasta with turkey meatballs and salad
Friday: Tilapia, roasted red potatoes, green beans
Saturday: BBQ chicken in the crock pot, sweet potatoes, sautéed spinach
Breakfasts: Smoothies and eggs with bacon and veggies
Lunches: Salads with roasted veggies, steak or grilled chicken
Here is what I prepped last weekend:
-roasted veggies for lunches (sweet potatoes and broccoli)
-cleaned and cut cucumber and peppers for salads
-made protein bars
-Rob grilled chicken on indoor grill
