Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Have you ever had a period of days or weeks where everything seems to go wrong?  That explains my last few weeks.  I’ve been having some weird health stuff.  Hypoglycemia and migraines.  The loss of my grandfather.  I’ve been letting these set backs hold me back from reaching my health goals.  I haven’t been meal planning or going to the gym.  It’s hard to go to the gym when your head and face are aching.  I’m hoping to feel better soon, so I can get back to kicking butt!

What do you do when you’ve lost motivation?  I need a pep talk!!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I hope you all spend some time with the one’s you love today.  I’m going to get mushy on you here…

Happy Valentine’s Day, Aaron.  You’re the absolute love of my life and I can’t imagine my life without you.  I wish we had found each other earlier, so we could love each other longer.  I will cherish every minute, day, year that we have together.  You make me feel like it’s valentine’s day every day, not just one day a year.  I love you, my best friend, lover, husband, soulmate.  Forever and ever.

Weekly Menu Planning 2/4

IMG_1351

Happy Monday!  We had a super busy weekend, starting out with a couples workout.  Aaron and I never work out at the gym together, but our time aligned on Saturday morning and we hit the Y together.  We followed that up with car shopping for my niece, a BJ’s trip and grocery shopping.  Plus I snuck out for brunch with my girlfriends.  Yesterday I met one of my besties at the gym for a workout and then picked up my boy for the day to watch the super bowl.  Lovely weekend, although I could use a rest day today.  😉

I made a huge pot of taco chili for lunches for the week and our weekly batch of protein muffins for breakfast.  We’ll have veggies and hummus for snacks and brown rice crackers.

Here’s what we are eating for dinners this week:

Monday: Taco’s with refried beans and veggies

Tuesday: Chicken and broccoli alfredo over brown rice pasta with salad

Wednesday: Chicken sandwiches with roasted carrots and potatoes

Thursday: Chicken enchiladas with rice

Friday: Leftovers or dinner out

 

It should be another busy week, since I’ll be back at the gym.  It’s been a rough couple of weeks with vertigo and migraines.  I have an ENT appointment today to hopefully get some answers.  It sucks when you actually WANT to go to the gym and work out and your body has other ideas.  This explains why there hasn’t been a Friday Fitness Review posted in two weeks…did you notice?  LOL!

So tell me, what are YOU eating this week?  Take a minute and comment below!  I need some inspiration for future weeks!
