Happy Monday! I had a great weekend and am looking forward to a good week! Started off with a country music workout with intervals and arms. Last week was rough. I skipped workouts on Wednesday and Friday, then the weekend. I was feeling very rundown and my body and brain needed the break. Work has been brutally busy, so this week I’m using my workouts to beat the brain and body stress. Here’s what’s on our menu this week:
Monday: Falafel and Tzaziki with side salads.
Tuesday: Turkey Tacos and rice
Wednesday: Salisbury Steaks with Onion Gravy over mashed potatoes.
Thursday: Chicken tenders in the air fryer.
Friday: Grilled chicken salads, most likely on the go. I have a show to get ready for on Saturday!
We are back from an amazing weekend away and I have to say, I was not ready to come back to work! We spent the weekend in Cape May, NJ with family, walking around town and bike riding all over the place. We ate really yummy food (Lobster TWICE!) and I was lucky to not have gained any weight. We went on a boat ride and saw dolphins swimming right next to us and got to hang out with some awesome new friends and cute kids. On the home front, Josh made an acapella group and I am SO EXCITED!!!!! I love seeing my boy on stage and we will totally get to see him in shows and competitions. This mama is happy, happy, happy!!!
So here’s what Aaron and I are eating this week. We meal planned on the ride home yesterday and got our groceries before we even went home.
M: Pierogies and sauteed squash, zucchini and mushrooms for meatless Monday.
T: Turkey Tacos! I love taco tuesdays.
W: Shepherds Pie. I haven’t made it in a while and it’s always such a yummy dinner.
T: New York Strip steaks. We haven’t had steak in a while and my low iron is begging for it!
F: Leftovers. We’ll have plenty after this week’s cooking. I’m hoping there will be Shepherds pie left! I may bring it for lunches though!
S: Wedding! My friend is getting married and I’m so excited to celebrate her and her new hubby!
S: Family dinner
Breakfasts are eggs and turkey sausage and lunches are chicken salad sandwiches. I’m obsessed with the sandwiches lately. I’ve never been a big bread or sandwich eater.
It’s hump day! I have one day left of crazy work and then a long weekend to recoup. We’ll be in Cape May, NJ Friday through Sunday with Aaron’s family. Tomorrow night my girlfriends and I are getting together to celebrate 3 of our birthdays from August. I’m excited for some girl time. I’ve already planned my meal, since it’s once of my favorite restaurants. Blt salad with filet. Yum! Not much else is going on in Lori Land. Lol! Enjoy your weekend!
Hello again! This weekend was sooo quick. I was in Washington D.C. for an Arbonne even on Saturday and yesterday we took a nice walk outside, went to brunch, did the grocery shopping and meal prep and I went to my moms and binge watched “Heartland”. Have you seen it??? I love it!!
For breakfasts this week I made sausage and peppers egg bake. It is so good! I’ve been making a version of this every week. The eggs keep me satisfied for quite a bit!
Lunches are turkey and sweet potato chili, that I forgot to take pics of. It’s so good though. Just wish I added a bit more spice! I like a lil heat!
What’s up? I’m in the middle of hell week for work and I’m exhausted!!! I’ve been starting my early mornings with exercise to keep me strong and good wholesome foods to keep my body happy. My brain is overloaded. I’m actually getting ready to meditate to hopefully calm my mind and get a restful night sleep. Hope you are having a great week!
Busy, busy week starts tomorrow. We’re spending today getting prepped and then bbq’ing with the family. Aaron and I both got our workout in this morning. Never miss a Monday! Here’s what we’re having this week:
Another really good week with my bff Peloton. I started power zone training this week and took the ftp test today. My quads are burning!!! With school starting next week and my life turning hectic, I’m hoping to continue my early morning workouts. No, I’m not hoping, I will. Putting that out into the universe. 💪🚴♀️
Besides power zone training I did some arm strength and abs. My diet was really on point this week. Now to keep it that way through the holiday weekend and hell week!
Spent quite a few hours meal prepping today. I made chicken sausage and veggie egg casserole for breakfasts, fresh veggies and homemade dip for snacks, chicken salad for lunches. I’m trying to keep my protein high. For dinners we have the following planned:
M: out for my bday with the in-laws.
T: carne asada tacos with rice and salad
W: beyond burgers with roasted potatoes and roasted veg
