Hey there! I hope you guys had a great weekend. Mine was super low-key and included things like a 90-minute massage, a long walk with the pups, dinner with friends and more stuff that you’ll hear about in tomorrow’s weekend recap.

For now…let’s chat about workouts and meal planning. I’m so excited about this week’s dinner menu so if you do nothing else, scroll down and check it out. Whole30 or not, this one is a WINNER!

RE: workouts. I’m still not getting the strength workouts in that I would prefer but now that I’m only at the gym once a week to train clients, I’m having a hard time getting over there on other days. I’m going to start small and just try to make it two strength sessions instead of one next week and call that progress.

On the topic of strength, you should totally try this triplet of exercises that I posted on Instagram on Friday. I’ve been sore for the last two days from it in all the best ways! I know that I’ve been promising a pulling program for those of you who are working on getting pull ups. I promise to make it happen in the next 3-4 weeks. Hold me accountable!

And when it comes to running, I’m hanging out comfortably in the 4-6 mile zone and adding back in some speed work. I was planning on trying to get a 7-8 miler in today…but then I walked the pups for an hour and did yoga instead. I’m definitely going to be ramping up the running a bit in the next few weeks as I have some spring half marathons on my calendar! 🙂

Last Week’s Workouts

Monday: 5.1 mile run at 8:19 pace

Tuesday: hot yoga

Wednesday: 5.2 mile run at 8:38 pace

Thursday: hot yoga

Friday: 2.5 miles treadmill sprints + lift + hot yoga

Saturday: REST

Sunday: 4 mile walk + hot yoga

This Week’s Dinner Menu

Monday: Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Tuesday: Paleo Shepard’s Pie

Wednesday: One-Pan Roasted Spiced Chicken Dinner

Thursday: Sesame Crusted Seared Tuna with Wasabi Aioli (I’ll make homemade mayo for this) with stir fry Asian veggies (recipe after I make it!)

Friday: Slow Cooker Butter Chicken over Cauliflower Rice

Saturday: TBD or OUT

Sunday: Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chili (I am going to make it with ground lamb)

And there you have it!

What’s your current comfortable running distance/mileage?

Anything on your meal plan this week that you’re excited about?

Use Your Voice + 5 Thoughts on My Second Whole30 + Eats

It's Saturday morning, rainy and gray out and I'm sipping coffee in front of the computer. I thought about running or going to yoga but for right now I just want to sit and be still before I head out to teach in a bit. I had so many thoughts running through my head as [...]

Day in the Life 1.11.17

I got sucked into admin stuff today so I didn't get to "creating" anything when it came to content for my blog or for the studio. I actually thought it would be a great day to show you in a "day in the life" format because it wasn't so go/go, rush/rush like my normal DITL [...]
