Weekly Menu Plan 1/5

Happy Sunday! It’s been a busy day so far! I slept in until 7:30am and then hit the ground running. Aaron and I did our grocery shopping early and then made a healthy breakfast for the 3 of us. After breakfast, I meal prepped for the week. Lunches for all 3 of us (Josh is home for another 2 weeks before he heads back to school), including Turkey Sweet Potato Chili. I’ve got yummy gluten and dairy free meatballs ready for dinner tomorrow night. Snacks are all preportioned and ready to go. You know what they say, “Fail to plan, plan to fail.”

Here’s what’s on our menu for the week:

So what’s on your menu for the week?

Fitness Review Friday 1/3

IMG_1374

Is it Friday?  It feels like Tuesday, which is really tripping me out!  I’ve been on vacation since 12/20, and came back to work yesterday.  I needed my routine back!!  I had taken a lazy holiday break from working out.  I know, I know, I’m only hurting myself!  My husband completed his 100th ride on the Peloton and I should have been right there with him.  I’m so proud of his commitment, he inspires me to get back to it.

I started the new year with a ride for a friend’s 100th and then yesterday I did a bunch of short rides strung together.  Some low impact rides with a hard climb in between.  Today I’ll do a 20 minute ride and then work on arm and shoulder strength and core.  Tomorrow I’m going to use the app to do a treadmill work out and Sunday I’ll do yoga and foam roll.

Anyone else pulling themselves out of a work out funk and restarting?  What are you doing?  Let’s motivate each other!!

xoxo, L

Hey guys!  I haven’t written a What’s up in a few weeks!  We’ve been super busy lately!

I am so super in love with our new dog, Gizmo.  I could just snuggle him ALL THE TIME!  I miss him when we’re apart, just like I do my other two boys. 🙂

Aaron and I hosted a chili cookoff this past weekend at our home.  I made two different chili’s and placed the two lowest.  What’s up with that??  My mom took first place with her Hunka Burnin’ Love chili.  LOL!

Sunday was a lazy day with my mom, Josh and my bestie and lil bestie.  We ate and laid around watching tv.  We never get days like this and it was FABULOUS!!!

Lazy Sunday

Today is my brothers birthday.  Last year he turned 40 and had his second knee replacement the day after.  This year he’s having his thyroid removed tomorrow.  Hopefully next year will be surgery free!  Here’s a real throwback picture of us.  A cracked up Polaroid.

Little B&L

This weekend we have the Run for the Stripes to benefit Neuroendocrine Tumors.  We walked it last year too, but this year we have a whole team!  I’m so excited to raise money for a great cause and spend time with family at the zoo.

So, What’s up with you?

Weekly Menu 10/21

IMG_1351

Can you believe it’s Monday already!?  The weekend just flies by!  Here’s what we’re eating this week:

M:  Meatless Monday – Falafel and Tzatziki with spring mix salad with tomato and cucumber and a light greek viniagrette.

T:  Taco Tuesday – Lean ground beef taco salads with guacamole

W: Chicken Glop.  It’s a recipe that Aaron loves from childhood.  Chicken breasts baked with cream of mushroom soup, topped with bread crumbs and slices of Mozzarella.  It’s supposed to be swiss, but I do NOT like swiss cheese!

Th: Crockpot Beef Roast with carrots, potato and onion.  We have to run out for my niece’s concert, so we need a quick dinner.  What’s quicker than  dinner that’s been slow cooking in the crockpot all day!?

F:  Leftover or a soup from the soup swap.  We’ll be running to Josh’s concert that night!

S:  Rotisserie chicken and vegetables.

S:  Out for my Mother in Law’s birthday
