Welp, here we are…Sunday night already. Where did the weekend go?? This was my first full weekend on my workout/nutrition plan and I’m pretty proud of myself. I didn’t eat quite as well as I should have but I definitely tried to make smart choices when it came to dining out. I had a great weekend catching up with friends and spending time with Mike. Here’s a quick recap.
Friday – woke up feeling even sicker than I had earlier in the week. Had to go to work two hours late because I seriously COULD NOT STOP SNEEZING…it was awful!!! I think I sneezed about 50 times, my body hurt so bad. Slowly started to feel better towards the end of the day but I didn’t want to chance an intense workout and get worse but I did want to get a little exercise in so I went for a mile walk around my neighborhood. This little head cold was the weirdest thing. It almost felt like really really bad allergies. Strange. Anyway, since I didn’t have a long workout after work Mike and I went to dinner. He loves Olive Garden (I’m not a fan) but we went because I love him 🙂 After dinner we watched The Revenant which was really good but super intense. Nice little relaxing date night.
M1: The usual. Chocolate Vegan Shakeology with 1/2 banana.
M2: Grapes and string cheese
M3: Grilled chicken breast with roasted veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and onions) and an apple.
M4: Simply Almonds, Cashews, and Cranberries. I love these little trail mix bags from Trader Joe’s! Perfect little snack. Three dark chocolate kisses…whoopsie.
M5: Olive Garden. Minestrone soup, side salad without croutons, one breadstick, and one beer (Peroni…yummm). Should’ve skipped the breadstick because it honestly didn’t taste as good as I thought it would. Could’ve definitely lived without it.
Saturday – workout complete! 43 minutes of Total Body Hammer plus 5 minutes of abs. Seriously great routine!!
M1: Banana with a tablespoon PB and a drizzle of honey. Dip the banana in the PB and it’s soooo good
M2: Hard-boiled egg and Energize
M3: Lunch with my friend Nicole to catch up on life and have one of my all time favorite salads. The Village Salad with Lamb from Olive Pit Grill. Sooo yummy and so good for you. Cucumbers, tomato, onions, capers, kalamata olives, and more. Topped with lamb, tzatziki, and pickled onions. Only had one of the pita slices.
M4: Met up with my friend Maggie for some girl time and cocktails. Had a drink similar to a margarita but without all the sugar. It had tequila, grapefruit juice, soda water, and chile. Had two of those with two glasses of water. It was really nice to catch up and talk about both of our wedding plans.
M5: Gyu-Kaku again with some friends. Had one glass of wine, a few meat dishes, spinach, one dumpling, and a small bowl of kimchi
Sunday – workout and meal prep complete! 35 minute cardio routine. I’ll share a little more about meal prep tomorrow.
M1: One egg
M2: Pita bread dipped in an olive oil and balsamic mix
M3: 1/2 flatbread grilled cheese and 3 fried green tomatoes from Green Tomato Grill
M4: Recover shake blended with a banana and PB. Please excuse the super sweaty picture below. I couldn’t wait to have my shake! It keeps me from getting super sore and refuels my body after a tough workout.
M5: Nothing as of yet. My Recover smoothie after my workout has kept me full
We just had a small earthquake…eeeeekkkkk!!! Ugh I hate them. Gonna go crawl in a ball now on the couch and not move. Enjoy your evening!
