Weekly Menu 8/5

IMG_1351

The weekends don’t last.  That’s one of my favorite quotes from my uncle, and it’s so true.  I can’t believe it’s Monday again already.  I spent some time last night meal prepping for the week.  I grilled some chicken and made some brown rice pasta for salads, hard boiled some eggs (well, hubs did this) and prepped fruit for snacks.  I saved chicken for Aaron’s sandwiches and bagged up his veggie chips.

For dinner this week, this is our lineup:

M:  grilled chicken, roasted potatoes and carrots.

T: Tacos

W: chicken and rice with roasted veg

T: Gluten free tenders and sweet potato tots, with veg

F: We’ll be away for the weekend at the beach.  Most like Grotto’s pizza, so i’ll stick with salad and a slice of pizza or soup.

What’s on your menu?  I need some ideas to spice up our week!

Hey y’all! Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday and that your weather has been as perfect as ours this weekend! I’m about to start my meal prep for this week after dinner. We started our day by making yummy breakfast tacos. Then off to the farmers market for some fresh corn, tomatoes, peaches and bread. The grocery store was last on our agenda before we got home and hit the pool. Ahhhh, nice relaxing Sunday with yummy foods!

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!!

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!
