Workouts 1/6-1/12 and Meal Plan 1/13-1/19

This week, I’m trying a few new things! First of all, I decided to go back to posting my weekly workout logs as a way to hold myself accountable. I made thirteen lofty goals for 2013 and for the month, so I want to be sure that I meet them! Here is my workout log for the week:

Weekly Workouts 1_6-1_12

Since I was debilitated by my migraine on Friday, I’m cutting myself some slack. Next week I would like to fit in one more day of weights and another cardio session.

I’m trying something new with meals this week because making dinner every night just isn’t making sense anymore. Instead, I’m going to prepare a few things to have on hand to heat up and some quick meal ideas posted so we can each prepare our dinner in ten minutes or less.

Eating Bird Food’s Cinnamon Raisin Quinoa Breakfast (a much needed switch up from oatmeal!)
Hard boiled eggs

Mag Mile Runner’s Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup
Tuna Salad in whole wheat pitas
Egg Salad in whole wheat pitas

Fruit, mini popcorn bags and whole wheat pretzels with hummus

Sunday: Eat Live Run’s Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka MasalaΒ 
Friday: Back to Her Root’s Creamy Chicken and Kale Alfredo (I tried this recipe last week and it was a keeper! I’m making it for my friend Liz and I for a girls’ night catching up on Pretty Little Liars)
The rest of the week: Black bean tostadas, soup, Trader Joe’s Italian chicken sausages, eggs

What’s your meal planning style? Do you have a plan for the week? How did your workouts go last week? Any workout plans for this week?


  1. Don’t feel guilty about skipping a workout when you have a migraine!!! I have only had a couple in my life (during pregnancy) and I can’t imagine trying to work out during it.

    Thanks for the link to the tikka masala! I don’t have a good recipe for it, so I am going to try this one tomorrow night πŸ™‚

  2. I’m really impressed with your swimming. I always find it to be so challenging!

    I don’t really have much of a meal planning style. My husband and I pretty much eat chicken & veggies every night. We’re super boring:)

    • Don’t worry, I find swimming challenging too! My biggest accomplishment this week was not running into the lane markers. πŸ™‚

      It sounds like you have go to meals-I wish we had more. We’re too adventurous.

  3. Sounds like you had a great workout week. I really like the variety of activities you chose!
    We kind of meal plan everything for the week before we go grocery shopping and then just shop off that list. It helps to cut down on impulse buys, which I can be guilty of.
    Last week was a pretty good workout week for me. I started running again so I’m working on building up my endurance again. This week, I meet with my trainer tomorrow, so hopefully that will get me off to a good start. Hope you have a great week!

  4. Great job on your workouts! I’ve actually taken a page from your meal planning book and it’s helping out quite a bit! I appreciate being more planful of my meals. My goal for next week is to make a soup!

    • Yay! Soup is really awesome to have on hand for lunches. It takes approximately 30 seconds to pack!

      • How do you carry it to work? And how are you storing the soup from once it’s made? Those are a few things I hadn’t quite figured out yet.

        • I keep the soup in the pot with a lid on it and it keeps just fine! To bring to work, I carry it in a mason jar. As long as you tighten the lid, you’re good to go! You can even heat the soup in it, as long as you take off the lid!

  5. Nice week of varied workouts! You are rocking it!

    No meal planning for me. πŸ˜‰


  1. […] more aware of it. I’m not superwoman and I definitely don’t have to be! As I mentioned yesterday, I’m trying a more relaxed meal planning strategy. For workouts, I have a few workout dates […]
