It’s been a minute since I’ve done a food and fitness recap post. Before I share our recent eats and my workouts, here’s a look at our little family getaway we had to the lake cabin.
Lots of time outside surrounded by trees and the lake. No TV. Tons of playing for Hunter and chilling for Jacob and I. Although I wouldn’t say I came back rested (Zoe was not a good sleeper and woke everyone up early in the mornings) I came back relaxed. Even with weekends at home and no real plans, there is always stuff to do around the house. It was nice kicking back with no worries. I got lots of reading in too!
Monday: roasted chicken, roasted veggies (asparagus, onion, carrot) and cauliflower mash
Tuesday: fajita rice bowls (chicken, bell pepper, onion, rice, cheese, sour cream and avocado)
Thursday: leftover broccoli cheddar soup with rice and leftover roasted veggies
Friday: BBQ’d beef burgers on whole wheat buns + grilled green beans
Saturday: BBQ’d salmon + crusty bread + caesar salad and mushrooms
Sunday: whole wheat pancakes with applesauce, bacon and honeydew — BFD FTW!
I did major veggie prep over the weekend which made dinner time so much easier. I am pinching myself for not doing any prep this weekend – but relaxing > prepping sometimes.
Monday: taught body pump and fitness yoga
Tuesday: taught fitness yoga
Wednesday: taught body combat
Thursday: taught body pump, sculpt and tone and 2 fitness yoga classes (first day of this new heavy teaching day – I was majorly wiped out by the evening!)
Friday: taught body pump
Saturday: rest + active outside with the kiddo
Sunday: rest + active outside with the kiddo
I am always so thankful that teaching allows me to get my workouts in – plus teaching is so much fun! It keeps me honest when I’m tired and don’t want to workout… the teacher has to show up! My Thursdays just became a four class day and I definitely scaled down my intensity that entire day. I’m sure my body will adjust, but I was seriously toast by that evening!
I love the mix of mostly strength and yoga + my super fun body combat class. I am very happy with the workouts! Just this past week I finally got back to my pre-pregnancy squat weight in body pump (60 pounds!) and while I was nervous to teach with it, I didn’t die during it. Who knows, maybe my focus on getting stronger and building more muscle will mean I will soon have a new squat weight for class – even higher than before!
What did YOU do over the weekend? What’s one thing you’re having for dinner this week? Seriously, I am going in with no plan so ideas would be helpful! We’re having tuna sushi bowls tonight.
