Last Week’s Meals and Workouts

Considering I had 4 days off last week, I sure managed to keep busy! But I guess that’s just how I roll. After we got back from NY last Sunday we got groceries and I came up with a loose meal plan- knowing I would need to be flexible this week. I did just some minor prep that took less than an hour, so not much to share as far as that goes this week!

weekly meal planning and food prep

 This was how the meal plan ended up last week, after moving around a couple of meals:

Sunday: salmon, broccoli/cauliflower/carrot mix, baked sweet potatoes

Monday: almond flour chicken, baked potatoes, asparagus

Tuesday: burgers, sweet potato fries, green beans

Wednesday: flat iron steak, roasted red potatoes, green beans

Thursday: went to my parents’

Friday: pasta, meatballs, asparagus

Saturday: leftover prime rib from my parents, mashed potatoes, kale/cucumber salad

Breakfasts: eggs with bacon and veggies/plantains/sweet potatoes

Lunches: salads with chicken or steak, leftovers

Snacks/Desserts: berries, Raw chocolate chip cookie dough bars, paleo brownies, paleo chocolate chip muffins

The week was pretty good for workouts, although my mileage was a little lower than last. After my 15 miles on New Year’s I decided to take the following day off from running, and since I was at my parents’ house I was able to use their elliptical. Having to drive to the gym just to get on an elliptical never sounds worth it to me. So this worked out pretty well. I have also been trying to add more barre and yoga throughout the week to work on strength and flexibility.  

Sunday: rest

Monday: 7.1 miles @ 8:32 pace


Tuesday: 4.5 miles @8:49 pace, 60 minutes yoga

Wednesday: 3 miles (treadmill), Body Pump, CX works

Thursday: 15 miles @ 8:42 pace, 10 minutes yoga cool down


Friday: 35 minutes elliptical, 40 minutes barre3, 10 minutes yoga

Saturday: 6.41 miles @ 8:33 pace, 10 minutes barre3, 20 minutes yoga

 Total: 36 miles

 How were your workouts last week?

Did your workouts and meal plan get screwed up by the holidays at all?

    • We were also away the week of Christmas and as much as I complain about cooking, it was nice to get back to our regular eating habits:)

    • I think over the past few weeks my eating habits have slipped quite a bit which is why I am planning to do the whole30 starting tomorrow! I hope that your long run went well today!

    • Haha well that happens! It can be so hard to stick to a schedule when things get so hectic! I think as long as you can still get some workouts in here or there its good enough!

  1. That was a really awesome long run! I’m not even sure I have a long run in me like that right now, I’m hoping to get there though in these next 2 months so I can think about a “real” half marathon where I might be able to do well :)

    Happy to see my chocolate chip muffins there! I think I need to start doing actual food prep every weekend because I’m feeling overwhelmed by trying to squeeze making dinner and lunches into short time slots. Enjoy your Sunday :)

    • I think part of what made the long run better was I didnt really plan for and had no pressure on myself since Im not really training for anything. I knew I could stop at any moment!
      Your muffins are so good and I will miss them next week when I start the whole30!

    • I’ve learned that doing yoga consistently really helps me to feel my best! Although its not always easy to get to a studio when things get really busy!

  2. You had such a great long run-i’m still impressed that you just rolled out of bed and ran that! Great job!:)

    I would love to have an elliptical at hole-I have a treadmill, but I think I would use the elliptical on those days where I just need to cross train and I don’t have a gym membership so that would be perfection (to me!)

    Happy new year!!

    • I wish I could just have a home gym with a treadmill and an elliptical or bike! I think it would make sense to invest in that stuff at some point but for now my gym membership will have to do. It was really nice to be able to use the elliptical at my parents’!

    • I feel like the holidays were all about the sugar and wine for me…Im glad to get back on track tomorrow and will actually be doing a whole30 to jumpstart healthy eating habits in 2015!

    • I love those too! Especially roasted red potatoes and sweet potato fries..they are on my meal plan pretty much every week!

    • As much as it was fun to celebrate the holidays I feel like I am ready to get back to my regular eating habits!

    • I love making some healthy desserts since its nice to have a treat after dinner:) Have fun in Disney next weekend!

  3. I love the 15 for 2015! I may have to do something similar next year! I took Christmas day off and didn’t want to go longer than a week without taking another day off at this point in my training, so I didn’t even run on the New Year’s, which I was a little bummed about, but it was progress towards my goal of being really smart this year with training at least ha 😉 I love the pictures you take on your runs sometimes, so pretty!

    • It sounds like you started off the year with some smart training decisions and thats awesome! I was glad that I decided not to run the day after New Years since i was pretty sore- it had been a while since I ran for that long!

    • Holiday weeks make it really challenging to keep a routine! Especially when traveling. Even though I was home this week it was still challenging to keep up with my regular schedule. There was just so much going on! Hopefully this week things will get back to normal!

    • haha you should totally make them and enjoy all the sugary goodness next week…I will be starting a whole30 so I will need to live vicariously through you:)

    • Thanks! Sometimes I realize I am always making the same things. I guess Ive just figured out whats easy. Hopefully I will branch out a bit this year!

  4. Wow, those are some healthy eats! I’m new to this blogging thing and while I’ll publicly log my mileage no problem, it’s going to take a long time before I’ll ever get up the guts to post what I eat. I am a nutritional nightmare. I’m pretty brutal. Love your blog, and great to meet you!

    • I am still not totally comfortable posting what I eat, partly because I am not very good at taking pictures of my food and also because I feel like there is alot of judgement around food. But since I am pretty comfortable with my food choices I don’t mind sharing- and I hope that I can influence others to feel more confident in their food choices too!
