It’s been a really fun, relaxing weekend and I can’t wait to share a few of the fun events I attended. Besides those, we had two nights in relaxing and I tried to catch up on sleep and fit in a few good workouts. We’re off to obedience school in a few minutes, but first I thought I would check in to say hi and recap my week.
Today, I’m starting a juice cleanse! After reading many reviews on the Peeled three-day cleanse, I bought the Groupon and picked up my juices yesterday. My reason for doing a cleanse is simply because I need a reset- I’ve been lacking energy lately, craving sweets and just had a lot of medication pass through my body during surgery. I know it’s not going to be an easy three days, but I’m looking forward to feeling the benefits.
This week I really found my groove with workouts. I completed three “runs” following the Couch to 5k week one, did this strength workout twice and did a 60 minute spin class yesterday. In my perfect week I would’ve made it to a yoga class, but I plan on going tomorrow and Tuesday as a part of my cleanse.
Now for this week’s meal plan!
For me- Juice Sunday-Monday, Avocado Toast & Peanut Butter Banana Toast (on Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat bread since it’s clean)
Rich- Homemade breakfast burritos and Waffles in the freezer ready to go
Lunch: Juice for me, Harvest Chicken Quinoa Soup and leftovers
Snacks: Juice!, Apples, Oranges, Turkey Jerky, Wasabi Seaweed Snacks, Dried Fruit and Hard Boiled Eggs
Saturday- Shrimp with Roasted Red Peppers & Feta with Brown Rice
Sunday- Juice Cleanse for me, leftovers/freezer food for Rich
Monday- Juice Cleanse for me, leftovers/freezer food for Rich
Tuesday- Juice Cleanse for me, leftovers/freezer food for Rich
Wednesday- Red Thai Curry Stew (which will be great for leftovers on meatless Lent Friday!)
Thursday- Brined Pork Chops with Sweet Onions and Potato Kale Mash (using honey in brine instead of sugar)
Saturday- Attending Rich’s Rugby teammate’s Wedding
Meal Prep (did this all last night to avoid cooking during my cleanse)
Hard boil eggs
How was your weekend? How were your workouts? What’s on the table this week (since I won’t be eating real food for the next three days I would like to live vicariously)?
