Happy Sunday everyone. How are you guys doing today? I’m doing alright, thank you very much. This weekend has been pretty relaxing for the most part. I did some spring cleaning for my room, worked out, hung out with my boyfriend, went grocery shopping, and started designing my poster board presentation for my community nutrition class.
Anyway, before I get into anything else, here is my plan for the week.
Sunday- 4 mile run
Monday- 2 PIIT Workouts
Tuesday- 5 mile run + strength
Wednesday- 1 PIIT workout
Thursday- 5 mile run + strength
So, I am trying to get back into running again. I basically stopped running after my half marathon. I really need to get back into it, especially with my 10K run in June. I’m so excited about it.
My boyfriend and I ate at Chipotle for lunch today and split a burrito. We ate the barbacoa burrito with rice, pinto beans, veggies, sour cream, cheese, pico de gallo, and guacamole. It was delicious. It’s been a while since I’ve been there and I usually get the sofrita. But, I might start getting the barbacoa since it was so good. We are usually fans of FreeBird but I had a coupon for a free burrito for Chipotle.
We’re trying to eat less when we go out to eat, which is why we split the burrito. Whenever we know that a meal will be huge, we will split it. It’ll save money and calories. We’re both trying to eat better and lose weight. Splitting the meals will definitely help. I actually have a number of pounds (10-15) I want to lose by summer and it’ll be difficult.
I really have to get back into working out more and eating better. It’s hard with being busy and it’ll be easier once I graduate. In the meantime, I should work on meal planning better and sticking with it. I should also get in some form of exercise in most days of the week.
I’ll do my best to eat leftovers for lunch. The meals my parents cook for dinner are healthy and I should really bring the leftovers for my lunches. If I don’t, I usually end up buying lunch (waste of money and calories). I don’t always have the time to prep my lunches beforehand. I also have my breakfast planned out for the week. It’ll be an egg scramble with chicken apple sausage, mushroom, spinach and little bit of shredded mozzarella cheese.
I did a little grocery shopping today and it came up to a little less than $20. I didn’t take a picture of my grocery haul. I went to Sprouts and bought:
- pre-sliced baby portabella mushrooms
- bagged fresh spinach
- all natural chicken apple sausage raised without antibiotics
- kombucha (it’ll be my first time drinking it)
- truffle flavored potato chips (Sprouts Brand)
- Organic Honey Wheat Bread
Well, that is it for now.
What’s your plan for the week?
