Exercise and Eats: Week of 4/8

Hey guys. Before I got to my workout for the day (was supposed to be yesterday and today was supposed to be a rest day, but I flip flopped them) I wanted to check in quick with some random stuff. My brain is mushy today so this post will probably lack proper grammar (per usual), cohesiveness (again, per usual) or sense (need I repeat myself?).

Last week, I mentioned that I decided to start planing my meals for the week. I found that it really helped. Here’s what my dinners looked like:

Monday: Turkey Taco Chili Soup (made a HUGE batch, and most of it is currently in the freezer)


Tuesday: Chicken Salad Sandwiches. So tasty.


Wednesday: Turkey Burgers. I put lotsa sriracha on mine and ended up using the same sourdough bread as the night before instead of buns.


Thursday: Chicken Fajitas. This picture just makes it look pathetic, but it was super tasty.


Friday: Won Ton Stirfry. Served over brown rice.


I just sat down to write out the meals for this week, and this is what I have come up with:

  • Monday: Southwestern Quinoa Bowls
  • Tuesday: All beef hot dogs
  • Wednesday: Loaded potatoes (regular tater for him, sweet tater for me)
  • Thursday: Penne Rosa (sans the shrimp) Recipe from thedancingrunner
  • Friday: Paninis (not sure what he wants, but I plan on having turkey, cheddar and granny smith apple on cinnamon raisin bread)

And on to the workouts. Here is what I had PLANNED and what actually happened:
