Weekly Meal Plan February 9-15

This week I am not going no sugar. No grain, yes, but I'm adding in some sugar.

I'm back on Weight Watchers. I enjoy counting points and eating fruit. I've always struggled with breakfast and in the past when I was maintaining my weight (while working full-time...makes it easier when the fridge isn't right behind you!!) I always ate fruit with yogurt for breakfast and morning snack.

I'm returning somewhat to my breakfast routes this week by eating a Stonyfield Greek Yogurt. They sent me a bunch as part of a campaign with FitFluential (have you joined yet? It's the coolest club ever. Sign up HERE) and I love the Cafe Latte the best. 3 points plus through Weight Watchers and with 12g of protein, it will help me pre and post-WOD.

Most of my lunches are going to be vegetarian. Lots of salads, and acorn squash.

This week's dinner plans are going to be easy. I've done a ton of pre-cooking today, so I'll just have to re-heat most things.

Sunday- Eggplant Spinach Lasagna

Monday- Spaghetti squash for me. Gluten Free pasta for the trio.

Tuesday- Eggplant Spinach Lasagna. We have Boy Scouts, so something easy to re-heat is perfect.

Wednesday- Grilled salmon with steamed broccoli and baked sweet potatoes.

Thursday-Breakfast for dinner

Friday- Stir Fry with chicken, snap peas, bok choy, and carrots.

Saturday- I'll be gone for the Spartan Race. James will have to figure something out. Wink

 

How's your week shaping up? Do you have issues with eating breakfast??

Weekly Workouts Feb 2-Feb 8

I had a pretty good week in workouts! I decided that I was simply doing too much with Jazzercise, so I had to cut that out. Don't get my wrong, I LOVED it, but I was spending just too long out of the house and not getting my work done!

Weekly Workout Schedule February 2-February 8

Sunday-REST!!

Monday-CrossFit + 2 miles This workout pretty much sucked! LOL. We did "Running Jackie" and then after the workout I walked a 2 miles to shakeout my legs! And yes, I did 2 rounds. Ugh.

“Running Jackie”
For Time Complete:
- 800M Run
- 50 Thrusters (45/35)
- 30 Pull-Ups

* Challenge (only for anyone who completes 1 round in under 15 minutes):
~Double “Running Jackie”~
- Complete 1 round of the WOD. If you finish the WOD in under 15 minutes, rest 3 minutes exactly and complete another round. Score is your total time (including the mandatory 3 minute rest break.) And YES, I finished in 13:30, so I had to do it again! LOL. I should have gone heavier on my thrusters.

50 Deadlifts. I am so proud! I did the RX weight of 95# and did them UNBROKEN! I got to 21 and it got a little challenging, but my partner kept me motivated to finish unbroken!

50 bar facing burpees jumpovers

50 V-Ups. These hurt my back, so I did tricep dips on the box

Calories: 508

Total Steps: 11,654

 

For the week I burned a total of 18,409 total calories and walked 94,066 steps. My step count is significantly down compared to my last few weeks. That's because I stopped Jazzercise. I'll need to make it up by walking Matthew longer than our typical walks.

On a positive note, my weekly sleep was UP! That's great b/c I never feel like I get enough sleep.
