This weekend was snowy and boring, we did nothing but hang out as a family and watch Making a Murderer, which was fine with me. I’m feeling a bit like we’re in limbo as we prepare for me to go back to work. But, last week we successfully managed Rich going back to school and starting his new role at work so that’s something.
This week my goal is to start to get into “work mode” and practice our morning and evening routines. This means that meal planning will be key!
Here’s my plan for the week!
Last week I did a great job of not wasting food, so I want to keep that up. I was very strategic about leftovers this week so that A. we would have enough for lunches and B. we stick to appropriate portions. I’m hoping for a few new weeknight recipes to add to my arsenal after this week too!
Easy Oatmeal Bake with Greek Yogurt or Hardboiled Eggs
Apples, Oranges or Bananas with String Cheese, Almond Butter or Peanut Butter
Sunday- Hearty Chicken Stew with Butternut Squash & Quinoa
Monday- Shakshuka with Feta with Crusty Bread
Tuesday- Pork Country Meatballs with Roasted Potato Hash
Wednesday- Peppersteak with Brown Rice
Thursday- Honey Mustard Pork Tenderloin with Crispy Vegetables
Friday- Out for my monthly game night with my ladies
Saturday- Wing it
I did a decent job of keeping up my workouts last week so this week I’m hoping for a repeat. The one thing I am changing is aiming for a few morning or after bedtime workouts this week since those will be my options when I go back to work.
Monday- Cardio Drills and Mat Core
Tuesday- Strengthen & Tone
Wednesday- Yoga Class
Thursday- Strengthen & Tone
Friday- Cardio Flow and Mat Core
Saturday- Body Pump with my friend Denise
What’s your plan this week?
By the way… I’m thinking of switching this series back to an actual recap of the prior week like I did when we came home with Buel. I liked the realness of the posts and also think that the accountability is necessary when I go back to work. Thoughts are appreciated!
