Meal Plan: Week of October 23 + Last Week’s Workouts

Quick check-in with my meal plan for the week ahead along with last week’s workouts. I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!

Armenian Lentil Soup

This Week’s Meal Plan


One pan roasted dinner with spicy Italian chicken sausage, acorn squash, onions and whatever other veggies I decide to add.


Armenian Lentil Soup with Eggplant and Apricots


Herbs de Provence chicken breasts with and orzo with roasted broccoli (trying this one again from the week I failed my meal plan execution)


Homemade spaghetti sauce over spaghetti squash


I have an event so leftovers or out


Fish or seared scallops (whichever looks better) over artichoke risotto with a vegetable


Out for a Halloween party


Last Week’s Workouts


40 minute walk


3.5 miles easy (9:15 pace)


Hot yoga


5.33 miles at 8:33 pace


2.25 miles on the treadmill starting at 9 minute mile pace and working to 7:15 + teach Total Strength

My Total Strength class had tons of lunges and squats and the curtsy lunges we did left me sore for 2 days right at the top of my glutes!


Hot yoga + 3 mile walk


15.11 miles at 8:54 pace


Walk and maybe some yoga depending on how I feel after I teach

What’s on your meal plan for the week?

Best workout last week?

    How was your 15 miler? Love fall long runs!

      SOOOOO GOOD! I am going to write about it in the next day or two. Fall running is the BEST!

    Which recipe are you using for the artichoke risotto? Your meal plan inspired me – I knew I would make salmon tomorrow and now I know what else we will have! There are a bunch of recipes on Pinterest so figured I would just ask 🙂

      It’s out of this Tuscany cookbook someone gave me that’s old and amazing!

    I’m training for a 15k race this weekend &awoke up with a sore throat &new congestion, would love some advice about training this week

      Hi Victoria –

      I would encourage you to rest as much as possible this week and try to heal from your sickness. All the training you’ve done up to this point will get you through the race. Focus on getting well and not running this week!
