food and fitness week 10

Hello!  Adjusting back to the week?  How was your weekend?  We had a jam packed fun filled couple days.  Hunter went to his first lil kickers soccer Saturday morning.  It was SOOO much fun to watch and participate with him.  He had a blast and still talks about it.  They started out with some stretches…

… then got to the fun!  Running, kicking soccer balls and squishy balls, scoring goals (like in the video below), stacking cones and so much more.  I can’t wait to go back again!

We celebrated my neice’s first birthday party, had friends over for dinner, went to breakfast with family in town and were wiped out by Sunday afternoon.  So much fun, but defintely more than we normally do over the weekend.  Let’s take a look at last week’s food & fitness!

Food

Monday – leftover sausage and mushroom cheesy pasta bake + roasted asparagus

Tuesday – beef burgers + roasted sweet potato fries

Wednesday – leftover burgers + salad + grapes

Thursday – veggie lentil mac n cheese (two out of three thumbs up)

Friday – at home date night! cheese plate with sausage, crusty bread and pear

Saturday – jambalaya (so good, will make again!) + apples

Sunday – sausage and onion strata (used up the leftover bread, sausage and cheese from Friday) + pears

I made a big effort to include more vegetables in my meals, and I feel like I did a better job at it.  Closer to the weekend it putters out, but I started out strong!

Fitness

Monday – evening family walk

Tuesday – went to a body pump class

Wednesday – evening family walk

Thursday – rest

Friday – went to a body combat class + an hour walk with my mom

Saturday – go-go-go all day

I felt like it was a good week of fitness.  Went to two classes and got lots of walking in.  I return to teaching on Thursday!

Isn’t she such a doll?  Love.so.much.

This afternoon I’m alternating my time into 15 minutes increments while the kids nap… something I want to do then something around the house (that I don’t really want to do).  My ‘fun 15 minutes’ is up and now 3 loads of laundry are calling my name.

Tell me something you did this past weekend.  Do you ever break time up like that to force yourself to get things done around the house?

food and fitness week 9

Heyo! Hope you had an awesome weekend. We had our first date night since Zoe was born at Amnesia Brewing. Not the greatest food, but awesome beer!  Yummmm.  We so needed it! It’s easy to get wrapped up in the kiddos and forget to make time for each other. Gotta keep these day nights going.

The rest of our weekend consisted of a few errands, dinner with friends (cute kiddos at their own little table… although Hunter didn’t stay)…

… cleaning up the house, meal prep and catching up on some zzz’s.

It wasn’t a great week for fitness. I started the week out a bit sleep deprived and needed extra naps. However, I went to a body pump class as a participant and had so much fun! I sure felt weak though. I was surprisingly not too sore from it.

Monday – nothing

Tuesday – nothing

Wednesday – nothing

Thursday – went to a body pump class!

Friday – rest

Saturday – family walk

Sunday – walk with the kiddos

food and fitness week 8

Good morning! I had totally planned to get this post up yesterday… but things got a little crazy with two.  Now that I’m back to cooking and moving a little more, I’m excited to do my weekly food and fitness posts again. Let’s see what I’ve been up to this last week.

Food

20140324-193802.jpg

Monday – refried bean soup (so good + makes a boat load)

20140324-193742.jpg

Tuesday – thai chicken coconut quinoa salads (the chicken marinade was delicious)

20140324-193703.jpg

Wednesday – chicken cordon bleu (freezer meal I had made), roasted mixed veggies and homemade bread

Thursday – potato, sausage and apple hash + over easy eggs

20140324-193548.jpg20140324-193631.jpg

Friday – mini pizza party!

Saturday – dinner out

Sunday – baked beans, roasted potatoes and asparagus

I chose pretty easy recipes for my first week back utilizing the crockpot and a freezer meal which worked out really well!  The mini pizza party with Hunter + my SIL, niece and nephew was so much fun.  I’m thinking Friday night pizza night will be an on going thing, especially since Hunter can help out with it.

Fitness

Monday – short family walk

Tuesday – short family walk

Wednesday – rest

Thursday – morning walk, 30-40 minutes + ultimate yogi cardio, 30 minutes

20140324-193718.jpg

Friday – rest

Saturday – family walk, about an hour

Sunday – practiced body combat, an hour

I’ve been randomly holding a plank after I put Zoe to bed, hovering by the bassinet to see if she’ll stay asleep. I slowly count to 30 and fall to the ground when it’s done – they’ve been tough!

We had a beautiful weekend weather wise and spent tons of time outside. Jacob cleaned up the front yard… getting ready for summer! This picture I captured of him striking a pose cracks me up. :)
