Before I do my weekly recaps, I wanted to share a few exciting things I received in the mail this weekend!
First, I got my gift from the Valentine Blogging Party from Amy! She noticed that I diligently post my workout recaps and meal plans so she made sure to send along some notepads for me. So cute!
We also received our completion package for the 100 Days of Real Food 10 Day Pledge! The hand signed letter was extra encouraging and reminded me of all the benefits I received from the challenge. It’s given me encouragement to continue down the clean eating path!
Now for the recaps!
This week, workouts took a backseat as I tried to figure out what was wrong with me. Now that I know what the issue is, I’m excited to get back into my workouts this week.
The weekend I took care of myself and did as little as possible. The only time I left my house was to get my hair cut and colored but other than that I was at home resting. I took a few bubble baths, read a lot, drank a lot of tea, ate a lot of comfort food and iced, heated and medicated my back. It’s starting to feel slightly better!
Meal Plan wise, I’m also a little lax for the upcoming week. It’s going to be a busy week filled with a few dinner’s out because it’s Chicago Restaurant Week! Tomorrow night I’m meeting up with my old college roommate for dinner at Sunda. Saturday night, Rich and I have dinner reservations at The Bedford!
Bringing the Easy Oatmeal Bake back!
Hard Boiled Eggs
Creamy Tomato Soup
Fruit, mini popcorn bags (creatures of habit)
Sunday: Steak Fajitas
Tuesday: I’ve been dying to make Back to Her Root‘s Penne Rosa with Shrimp so I’ll be making it for my friend Liz who’s coming over to catch up on Pretty Little Liars!
Other than that we’ll be eating leftover fajitas and penne, making eggs or quick dinners and winging it!
