Many of you have mentioned that you’d like to see more menu/meal plans so I decided to sit down this afternoon and actually plan out my week of meals to share with you.
Sunday: dinner out with friends
Monday: Mexican Quinoa Stuffed Peppers (recipe will be posted soon!) with some sort of side salad or vegetable
Tuesday: One-pan Greek Chicken and Rice with roasted broccoli
Wednesday: Shrimp Pad Thai with a veggie (probably sauteed baby bok choy)
Thursday: girl’s night
Friday: teacher training until 9 p.m. I’ll either get sushi takeout from Namastay Kitchen or throw something in the slow cooker
Saturday: TBD. If we stay in, I might finally make those gigantic crab legs in the freezer. 🙂
I’m not cooking as much as usual this week due to plans with friends and teacher training but I’m excited about the meals that I am making! I have been craving pad thai and haven’t had it since before Whole30.
I had a really awesome week of workouts. I got three good strength sessions in, the highlight of which was doing 20 unassisted strict pull ups in one of my workouts. My trainer has me do so many pull ups (I swear, it doesn’t even phase me anymore when she says “and now we’re going to pull” because I’ve learned we’re always going to pull!). I could previously do 3-4 good ones and then I would switch to a band for the rest of the workout. On Thursday I did 4 sets of 5 all on my own!
I also took a handstand workshop with my friend and fellow teacher Rian. Even though I love handstands and feel super comfortable doing them on my own, I always think there’s room to learn, grow and play. I was interested to see how Rian structured and led the workshop. It was a lot of fun and we did all sorts of handstand drills and variations in addition to a lot of backbending. I got myself into hollow back with feet on the floor for the first time. You can see the video on Instagram.
It’s a really cool feeling to see progress in your strength and your practice. 🙂
Tuesday: 4 mile run + training session
Wednesday: 3 mile run
Thursday: 1 mile warm-up on treadmill + strength
Friday: hot yoga
Saturday: 1 mile treadmill warm up + strength, handstand workshop
I also took a lot of long walks with the girls. The weather in Charlotte is so wonderful right now.
Off to the grocery store to do my shopping and then I have one class to teach. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
What’s on your meal plan this week?
