A Week’s Worth of Meals

Happy Saturday!! Anyone have any fun plans this weekend?? It sounds like everyone has Monday off but me 😦  This weekend should be pretty fun though.  Going to a party tonight and they are having the Lime Truck cater…yummmm!! They won the first season of Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race and have a restaurant here in Orange County.  Such a treat! Tomorrow I’m meeting up with my fantasy football team to watch a game and pass out the winnings for the season.  Besides that just working out and working on my business.  I apologize for not posting this week.  Here’s a quick recap:

Monday – my week didn’t start off so great.  I fell down a flight of concrete stairs on my way to work! Thank God I didn’t break anything, seriously so blessed.  I scraped up my right foot pretty bad and my body was sore but it could have been MUCH worse.  My foot was in a lot of pain all day but I still got in my workout (Max Hammer Strength)! I just modified a bit so that I didn’t put too much pressure on my right leg.

M1: My daily breakfast.  Vegan Chocolate Shakeology with 1/2 banana, 4oz coffee, and 4oz water

M2: Organic small apple with tsp peanut butter (I prefer Almond Butter but it’s so expensive and we’re on a tight wedding budget)

M3: Taco salad.  I meal-prepped 4 of these bad boys on Sunday so that Mike and I had lunch made for two days.  So easy and so good.  Use toppings of choice.  I put the lettuce in the bowl first then topped with the brown rice and ground grass-fed beef and other goodies.

M4: Organic 2% cottage cheese with 1/2 avocado. I used a whole red container of cottage cheese (21 Day Fix/Hammer & Chisel meal plan).

M5: Chicken stir-fry.  It was too spicy for Mike so I saved his and ate for lunch on Wednesday.  I have a much higher spice tolerance than he does 🙂  This meal is super simple. Cut up a few organic free-range chicken breast and cooked with a pre-made container of Asian Vegetable stir-fry from Trader Joe’s.  I added red pepper flakes and tamari.

Tuesday – after work we had to go give our wedding DJ more money and we went out to dinner. My foot still hurt pretty bad so I used Tuesday as my rest day.

M1: Chocolate Shakeology with 1/2 banana, 4oz coffee, and 4oz water

M2: organic small apple with tsp peanut butter

M3: taco salad

M4: organic 2% cottage cheese with 1/4 avocado

M5: an arugula salad from Spin Pizza.  The salad was so simple but so good.  It had a very light dressing of olive oil and lemon.  Spin Pizza has the best gelato so I treated myself to a small scoop of banana pie gelato and a glass of red wine.

Wednesday – Chisel Agility complete.

M1: Chocolate shakeology blended with 1/2 banana and 8 oz water

M2: organic small apple and tsp peanut butter

M3: leftover chicken stir-fry from Monday night

M4: organic 2% cottage cheese and 1/4 avocado

M5: build your own pita pocket night! Whole-wheat pita pocket with fillings of choice.  I used lettuce, chicken, green & black olives, onion, avocado, hummus, and a drizzle of sesame oil.

Thursday – Hammer Power complete.

M1: the usual, Chocolate Shakeology blended with 1/2 banana and 8 oz water. I tossed in some pumpkin spice coffee grounds and cinnamon for an extra boost of caffeine and spice.

M2: apple and tsp peanut butter

M3: lettuce and tomato salad topped with a veggie patty and dressed with EVOO and herbs.  Dr. Praegers makes the best veggie burgers! I get mine at Trader Joe’s.

M4: The New Primal grass-fed beef jerky and pre-workout

M5: my sweet fiance made me the most delicious dinner! Salmon, calamari, and a roasted tomato and spinach salad.  He cooked it all with just a little bit of EVOO, garlic, herbs, and lemon.  So much flavor and deliciousness without tons of butter like most restaurants use.  And a glass or two of wine 🙂

Friday – Chisel Balance complete.  I gotta say, I was pretty proud of myself! I haven’t stayed in and worked out on a Friday night in a loooonnngg time.  Fridays have always been my rest days.  Normally I will come home and either make dinner with Mike while having a cocktail or we’ll go out to dinner.  It actually felt really good to get my workout in and then just relax.  Mike went out with the boys so I had the house to myself 🙂

M1: Still have money left on my giftcard so I made a quick run through Starbucks on my way to work.  Grande cappuccino and reduced fat turkey bacon and egg white breakfast sandwich.

M2: cup of hot tea

M3: Subway 6″ veggie sandwich on wheat bread.  All the veggies and avocado.

M4: a few dark chocolate covered almonds and a piece of chocolate peppermint bark.  It was too good to resist!

M5: a glass of red wine and the most delicious homemade protein ice cream! A friend of mine shared this trick with me.  You mix a scoop of post-workout recovery (I use Beachbody Chocolate Recovery), 1/2 frozen banana, about 12 ice cubes, and enough egg whites to get the blender going (I used two eggs and tossed out the yolks).  Blend in a high powered blender until ice cream consistency.  I made it then put it in the freezer while I rinsed off after my workout.  An hour later or so I had a slice of whole-wheat pita bread dipped in an oil and balsamic mixture.

For those of you following the 21 Day Fix or Hammer & Chisel meal plan I’m going to try and go back into the past few posts and label with the food container colors.  I’ll work on it tomorrow and this week.  I know this would be super helpful and I’m here to make life easier for you 🙂
