I don’t generally post weekly meal plans or workout plans because, quite honestly, these are my least favorite posts to read on other people’s blogs. These are the posts I most frequently skim or skip all together. They’re just not usually very interesting. But I’ve found that I’m most sucessful, in both weight loss and in being a grown ass woman, when I approach the week with a plan. As a result, I’ve decided to post my weekly meal and workout plans on Monday morning. Feel free to skim or skip this post. Oh, and I’ll come up with a clever title and some graphics for these posts later.
First up, the meal plan.
Breakfasts: Freezer McMuffin-style Breakfast Sammies (I’ll be sharing the recipe – if you can even call it a recipe – for these on Thursday.)
Lunches: Leftovers with fruit or baby carrots
Dinners: All the dinners I’ve chosen this week are from either the Weight Watchers Veg Power cookbook or their One Pot cookbook. I typically only plan 5 dinners as we typically go out to eay at least once a week and will eat leftovers on remaining unplanned days.
Monday: Tofu Pad Thai
Tuesday: Nacho Frittata
Wednesday: Bean Mushroom & Corn Enchiladas
Thursday: Shimp & Pineapple Curry with Brown Rice
Friday: Steak & Mushroom Stroganoff
Now, the workout plan.
Monday: Gym for strength training and a solo spin sesh
Tuesday: 20-30 minute yoga pod cast at home
Wednesday: Run 4 – 5 miles
Thursday: Gym for strength training and spin class
Saturday/ Sunday: Gym for strength training/ Run 6 – 7 miles. (This will depend on if I’m meeting up with anyone to run.)
Today is not off to a great start. My train line was seriously delayed due to an earlier train hitting a pedestrian which resulted in a seriously frustrating commute to work (mostly me trying to find a parking lot at a different station in a very confusing neighborhood.) I forgot my breakfast and lunch in my fluster to get out of the house. And to top it all off, I have a killer headache because I failed to appropriately hydrate myself over the weekend. So wish me luck in keeping it together this week!
