Friday Fitness Review 1/18

IMG_1374

TGIF!!  We made it to Friday, y’all!!  I started last Saturday with a double workout and it was awesome!  I loved the new Les Mills releases for Tone and Combat.  I felt amazing after the classes and ran a ton of errands afterward.  Sunday was a rest day, and it was well deserved!  This week wasn’t so great on the exercise front and I’m so disappointed.  I had been looking forward to the new releases and Body Attack.

Monday:  Tone

Tuesday: rest

Wednesday: MIGRAINE

Thursday: Headache and stomach cramps

Friday:  I will get out early today since only one of our programs are running and they are half day.  I’ll go to the gym and try to catch a class or hit the elliptical.

Saturday:  I’ll hit the 9:15am body combat class

Sunday:  Weather is supposed to be NASTY and we have to take Josh back to campus.  I may do a treadmill workout downstairs in our home gym, or lift some weights.  Or both!!

Now that you know I was a lazy slug this week…what did you do?  I want to hear!  Tell me in the comments!

Happy weekend!!  Long weekend if you get off MLK day on Monday like we do!

Weekly Menu Planning 1/14

It’s a cold and snowy Monday here in Delaware, and it was so hard to get out of my nice warm bed!  We had a very relaxed weekend, which was definitely needed!  I did get in a double workout on Saturday morning and a trip to the grocery store before the snow started, so I’m feeling pretty good to start the week.

Here is what we’re eating this week, what are YOU eating??

Monday:  Omaha Steak Burgers, Tots and roasted broccoli and cauliflower.  I’ll have over salad, and sweet potato tots.

Tuesday:  Aaron has his work dinner, so Josh and I will have Chipotle!

Wednesday: Breakfast for Dinner!  Veggie Omelets and Turkey Sausage

Thursday: Tilapia filets, rice and roasted carrots

Friday: Steaks, roasted potatoes and sweet potatoes and asparagus

Saturday:  Was supposed to be family dinner out, since Josh is going back to college on Sunday.  However, he is hanging out with friends now and Aaron and I will have a date night.

Sunday:  Tears since my baby will be back at school?  lol!  Some kind of comfort food for sure!

Have a great week!!

Motivational Monday – 1/14

fearless

What sets your soul on fire??  Besides my husband (rawr), being creative and making jewelry and other crafts is what sets my soul on fire.  I’d love to grow my business this year, so I’m making it a priority.

I’ve been finding it hard lately to fit in time to work in my studio.  I’m going to make a goal to fit in at least 3 hours during the week.

So tell me!  What sets your soul on fire?

Friday Fitness Review 1/11

TGIF!  It’s been a busy week!  My body is thoroughly sore from workouts this week!  Here’s what I did:

Monday:  Tone 45 – A mix of cardio, body weight moves and some bands and weights.

Tuesday: Rest

Wednesday: Body Combat – my favorite kickboxing class

Thursday:  Body Attack – a Functional fitness class.  TONS of running, squats and burpees last night.  I burned a crap load of calories!

Friday: Tonight we’re having dinner for my father in laws birthday.  My body needs the rest anyway!!

Saturday: It’s Les Mills launch weekend at the YMCA.  I’m taking Tone and Body Combat back to back.  I’ll spend the rest of the day curled up on my heating pad.  Just kidding!  It’s grocery shopping day!!

Sunday is a day of rest in my house.  😉

What did YOU do this week??  I really want to know! Comment below!

Weekly Meal Planning

Happy Sunday!!  Hope you have enjoyed your weekend, I know that I have.  Yesterday I slept in until 8:30am, went to (healthy) lunch and to the movies with the hubs (Mary Poppins was totally adorable!) and spent an hour and a half wandering around the grocery store with lists from 4 different people!!  Today we’re finally taking down the Christmas tree and watching football.  No plans are the best plans for homebodies!  🙂

I’m currently smelling turkey sweet potato chili with black beans cooking for lunches, and I just finished prepping chicken salad from a rotisserie chicken we had for dinner last night.  I’m totally one of those people who spends $200 at the grocery store and then doesn’t feel like cooking.  Josh is home for another two weeks, so the grocery bill is a bit higher than normal!  Aaron and I are creatures of habit and have mainly the same foods for breakfast and lunch every day.  We both have protein muffins for breakfast and fruit for snack.  He has a lunch meat sandwich and veggie chips for lunch and I have salad or soup/chili.  Here’s our dinner plans for the work week:

Monday:  Chicken Enchiladas and rice

Tuesday: Crockpot roast with carrots and onions, and roasted potatoes

Wednesday:  Fend for yourself night!  Aaron has dinner plans with his BFF and I’ll have leftovers after the gym, since I’m going to the Rachel Hollis documentary with girlfriends!  SO EXCITED!!

Thursday: Shrimp and Scallop Teriyaki with Josh’s homemade fried rice.

Friday:  Out to dinner for Aaron’s dads birthday.  An Italian spot.  Since I don’t eat gluten or dairy, I’ll have the filet and veggies.

Tonight is family dinner at my mom’s and I haven’t planned for next weekend.

What’s on your menu???  Let me know in the comments!

Friday Fitness Review

As I said in yesterday’s blog post Goals or Resolutions?, I’m working towards a consistent workout routine.  Here is what I did this week:

Monday: I volunteered at the hospital in the morning, so I did not go to the gym.

Tuesday: Ummm, laziest day ever.  Aaron and I literally laid around reading all day.

Wednesday: Body combat!  I love kickboxing and this is my favorite class!

Thursday: Body Attack!  Whoa.  This was my first time taking this class.  Intense, but I loved it!!

Today: Walking over lunch, but otherwise a rest day.  I need it after last night. LOL!

Tomorrow I’ll either do body pump or spin in the morning to start the weekend.

What did you do this week?

Goals or Resolutions?

56788852577__218F4FCB-8016-4BEF-BE1E-779A6AA6A31AA new year gives us so many new chances to do well!  I love that we get a FRESH start to make changes every year, although I fully believe that you do not have to wait until January 1 to start anew.  I don’t want to make resolutions, but goals that I hope to achieve in the new year.  Here are my goals for 2019:

  • Continue on my weight loss journey.  I’d love to lose these last 50 pounds, but I’ll chose progress over perfection.  Eating clean and consistent exercise are the goal.
  • Be more Present!!  I have to admit, I’m addicted to my phone and facebook.  When did family events and dinners become everyone staring at their phones??  I’m horrible about this, so I’m definitely working towards changing this.
  • Pay off credit card debt.  We are pretty good with paying off our debt, but we made a few pretty large purchases in 2018 that I want to pay off.  I have updated our weekly budget and should have it paid off by July.
  • Meal Plan!!!  We’ve gotten into such a horrible habit of not planning anything and then being too tired to cook.  So we eat out.  Which is not only bad for the wallet, but also our waistlines.
  • Self Care.  I need to be better about taking time for me.  Time to read, paint my nails, put on a face mask, whatever!
  • Grow my business(es)!!  I have really enjoyed adding on to Morning Glory this year.  I had many special orders for the holiday season.  I want to continue in this venture and learn ways to create without it taking over my life.  I’m also hoping to grow in my Arbonne business.  I truly believe in the products and love how I feel when I’m consistent.

I came across this post on facebook (of course), and love this idea!  I’m going to incorporate these into each month:
