Oh Monday, how you always sneak up so quickly. It was so nice to have the last 5 days off of work and to be home with the families. But coming back to a full 5 days of work is sometimes a struggle. What's keeping me going? It's getting closer and closer to the wedding and I can't wait!
Last Week Recap
Last week I did really good with my fitness regimen. I got work outs in Sunday - Friday, running two races and completing all the strength days in Best Body Bootcamp. I took Saturday and Sunday off because my body needed it. My legs were extremely sore from running two races at a pace of under 8 min/miles.
I did not however do as good as I thought I would with eating 7-9 servings of veggies a day. Monday-Weds, I did great. But the rest of the week I really struggled to fit them into my meals when I didn't have as many options or have my meals planned out. It's not an excuse, but it was eye opening to see how I need to do better when traveling... even if it's just to my parent's house.
I am really loving the HBBC for keeping me accountable but also challenging me to set new goals and stick with them. I am looking forward to doing even better this week.
It's a New Week
When we got home I planned out our meals for this week and made sure it included lots of veggies.
- Monday: Chicken Sausage, peppers, onions and spinach "stir fry"
- Tuesday: Crock pot shredded chicken fajita bowl. Tortilla for the FH.
- Wednesday: Fish (TBD) + Asparagus
- Thursday: Asian Stir Fry
- Friday: Wing It
- Saturday: Wing It
I also took some time (2 hours to be exact) to prep for my breakfasts and lunches this week:
Oven roasted chicken for salads
Steamed broccoli for salads
Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
Quinoa for dinner sides
Chopped pepper, celery, carrots for afternoon snack w/hummus
I also plan to add spinach to my post workout smoothies and eat a pear for my lunch "dessert"
Workouts for the week are courtesy of Week 6's Best Body Bootcamp. Only 2 more weeks to go :( I don't want it to end!
I think I'm ready to get back on track :)
