Well, I did an alright job following my tips to keep my fitness goals while we had Preston’s parents in town. Sure would have been about twenty times easier if it hadn’t rained almost the entire time 😉 But that’s okay!
Now I’m ready to hit it extra hard this week and make up for a less-healthy week! In general, I plan to cut my workouts back to 4 days a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and weekends) and focus on recovery and taking Ned for long walks the rest of the week. This week I’ll try to fit in some extra short workouts, which I’ve scheduled for Wednesday morning and evening. If I wind up squeezing them in at other times, that’s fine. They’re bonus workouts this week.
Tuesday | boxing workout
Wednesday | AM – TIU ab workout; PM – upper body dumbbell workout
Thursday | short treadmill HIIT sprints + my squats + lunges workout (but I’m modifying it to remove the arm workouts this week)
Friday | REST DAY (maybe some easy yoga)
Saturday | 3+ mile jog
Sunday | back to the boxing workout!
Tuesday | pan-seared salmon with succotash from this cookbook
Wednesday | pizza roll salad + steamed artichokes
Thursday | caesar roasted broccoli (also from this cookbook) + olive butter tilapia
Friday | pineapple teriyaki soy curls + green beans
Saturday | date night out!
Sunday | roasted red pepper soup
This week, I even planned out my breakfasts, snacks, and a sweet treat everyday, so that I leave nothing to a last-minute hungry decision. 😉 Best way I know to have a great week is to PLAN.
For me, it’s really easy to follow a detailed plan after a week and a half of not being able to plan anything! I’m motivated and excited to get started! I kind of think this is my New Year motivation, since I didn’t really get that rush when I knew we were going to have a weird first couple weeks. Fresh start, fresh year, let’s kick it off right! (Or for those of you who already did that….. ride it out another week!)
Happy planning, lovelies!
