Need some meal and workout ideas? Here is my food and fitness week in review for the week of April 30th through May 6th 2018. Be sure to tell me in the comments below your favorite meal or workout from the week!
Weekly Menu Recap:
Monday: Salmon with maple syrup, chili powder, and paprika and a side of roasted vegetables.
Tuesday: I had a Purple Carrot Delivery (plant-based meal delivery service) and make the Korean Tacos with eggplant, but I added ground beef from a local farmer, Hancock Family Farms. I love the Purple Carrot meals because they come with so many vegetables! But I do find I prefer to add some meat or fish to each meal for extra protein.
Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner. We had bacon from Hancock Family Farms, eggs, and roasted vegetables.
Thursday: Purple Carrot meal of Smashed Potatoes with jalapeno ‘cream’ and a snap pea and lentil salad. I didn’t add any meat this time.
Friday: Mexican inspired Turkey Burgers with rice and salad.
Saturday: We went into DC for the Nationals Baseball game in the afternoon and after the game dined at All-Purpose Pizzeria.
Sunday: A few too many beers at the baseball game the previous night so it was a Five Guys burger and fries kinda night and Rita’s ice cream for dessert, 😉
Monday: 30 minutes of sprints on the treadmill followed by 15 minutes of AB work
Tuesday: Taught a 1 hour BodyPump class
Wednesday: Taught a 45 minute total body strength training class
Thursday: Did 1 hour of yoga
Friday: 45 minutes of lower body exercises including barbell squats and deadlifts, step-ups on the bench, stability ball roll ins and some work with resistance bands
Saturday: Ran 2 miles then did 30 minutes of bicep, tricep, and back work
Sunday: Rest Day
I’m glad I got a stretch and a rest day in this week along with a good mix of cardio and strength training. Stay tuned in the next few weeks I plan to post the workouts I’ve been teaching at class.
