Eats & Fitness – 1.12

Hey! How’s your week been?

I know for a fact of few of you are feeling more fit after an amazing Week 2 of the JSJ 2014 Challenge. It was pretty glorious to have motivation to MOVE this past week. Let’s keep it up! Feels good to sweat…am I right?!

Yesterday it rained most of the day, and was miserably cold. Great day for prepping meals for the week, and healthy snacks.

Homemade bread and hummus action…it’s going to be a good week.

This morning there were rain clouds aplenty, but after some protein pancakes, coffee, and rainbows the skies started to clear and now the sun is shining bright.

In fact I just got back from a 4 mile run with husband. I haven’t run in the sunshine in a long time. I’m usually out of the house before the sun begins to rise, so this was a nice change.

Our co-workers are coming in tomorrow for a few days, so it should be a fun week. Whenever we have company I usually meal plan, but they are also bringing us a load of groceries, so I’m kind of thinking I might end up changing some things up, but we’ll see.

Meal Ideas:

Grilled burgers w/oven roasted sweet potatoes

A Hearty Soup; like Italian Lentil

Homemade Pizza

A Curry or Indian dish – kinda craving this lately

These Quinoa Falafels – so yummy…

Also, as you saw I made some homemade bread and hummus, for veggie sandwiches and snacking. Or late night toast…love me some late night toast, warm and crusty with fig butter. MMMmmm.

Who’s doing Week 3 of the JSJ Challenge?

With guests here it’s going to be a lot of work for me, but I thought, how better to really get a feel for how I naturally eat and see how I can do better.

Whenever we have guests I try to get in my workouts just the same as I normally would while being social, and spending time with them. That means LOTS of early workouts. Here’s the plan for this week:

Monday – Legs + Ab Rippers
Tuesday – Run day
Wednesday – Rest/this yoga inspired workout
Thursday – Run day, speed work
Friday – HIIT + Strength
Saturday – Upper Body Tabata workout
Sunday – Run day

To another awesome week!
