Happy Labor Day everyone! I hope your weekend has been going pretty well.
I have been doing a lot of thinking and I won’t be doing the Urban Cow Half Marathon this year. I haven’t been training well for it at all and it is best to just do their 5k run, if I do decide to sign up for their Urban Cow run. In the meantime, I am trying to build up my running base again. The problem is that I haven’t been in a running mood lately (partly due to my mom’s comments on it but that’s another whole story).
Anyway, here is my plan for the week.
Breakfasts- egg+sausage scramble, pizza toast, or whatever I find in the house
Lunches- whole wheat spaghetti OR leftovers OR chickpea curry
Dinners- rice, protein, vegetables
Snacks- apples, nuts, whatever I can find
Sunday- Jillian Michael’s Extreme Shed and Shred
Monday- 2 PIIT Workouts
Tuesday- 4 mile run + abs
Thursday- 4 mile run
Friday- 4 mile run OR Jillian Michael’s Extreme Shed and Shred
Saturday- rest or Yoga
My plan is to start running again. Let’s see how that goes this week.
Anyway, I know I always have these plans made for my meals. However, I never actually explain or give tip on how to do it.
- Basically, it is easy to have breakfast that you can just heat up and take on the go. I know that many people are busy and it’s just easier that way. You can heat up something frozen you have made ahead of time (like on Sunday) while you are getting ready in the morning.
- For lunches, leftovers are your friend! Cook a lot on Sunday so that you can have food for the week or make extra during dinner to have leftovers for lunch the next day.
- Snacks- pack and portion out snacks for the week. It makes things a lot easier when you are on the go!
That’s all I have to say. I hope these few tips help out a little.
What’s your plan for the week?
