Happy Weekly Meals and Workouts Day!
I hope you guys are finding my template useful for meal planning. Here it is, just in case. Remember, it’s an Excel file!
So, here is my plan for workouts this week:
Sunday: 4 mile run, HIIT
Monday: HIIT, pilates, maybe a 4 mile run?
Tuesday: pilates, HIIT, 2 mile run
Wednesday: HIIT, pilates
Thursday: 4 mile run, pilates
Friday: 6 mile run, pilates
Saturday: active rest day
Most of my meals will be the same throughout the week. For me, this works. For others, it may not. It is up to you if you would like to eat pretty much the same thing everyday. I am the person that likes routine. I will change my meals every week, however.
Breakfast– oatmeal, peanut butter, coffee+soymilk, fruit or 100% whole grain cereal, soymilk, fruit (I may drink coffee but it depends). This week, I have cookie butter from Trader Joe’s! =)
Lunch– brown rice/quinoa mixture, stir fried vegetables, tofu or eggs or other vegetarian protein
Dinner– brown rice/quinoa mixture, stir fried vegetables, tofu or black beans or other vegetarian protein source
Snacks will consist of either fruit, Clif/Luna/KIND/Lara bars, cereal, whole grain crackers with peanut butter, carrots with hummus, or greek yogurt with granola.
As you see, my lunches and dinners are pretty similar. I may switch it up once in a while and eat a veggie burger, baked sweet potato fries or pizza with 100% whole grain crust. The vegetables and the “protein” sources will differ each day and with each meal.
What did you guys prepare this week?
What’s one of your food staples?
