Workouts + Meal Planning And Prep 3/29-4/4

Last week was a good one as far as workouts go because I RAN! It wasn’t much, but it was something. And I am happy to report that this week I have been feeling so much better than the few weeks before! 

weekly recap

 Sunday: Rest (sort of)

Monday: 1 mile easy and strength training

Tuesday: 30 minutes swimming;  PT in evening with 2 miles on Alter-G

Wednesday: 1 mile easy, Body Pump, CX Works

Thursday: PT with 2.5 miles on Alter-G

Friday: 1 mile easy, Body Pump


Saturday: Ran for 25 minutes- it was SO windy out! But it was 50 degrees and sunny so it was nice to be outside! Also did my PT stuff and alot of foam rolling.

The new PT I met with recommended I focus alot on strength, and Body Pump has been feeling good so I am happy that I can keep doing that. I plan to continue swimming once a week because it’s a good habit to stick with…but I can’t make any promises;)

meal prep

I didn’t have much time for prep last weekend, so I just did a few things. It actually looks like alot more than it seemed!

-made paleo bars

-cooked steak

-roasted veggies

-cut veggies and fruit

-baked brownies

-Rob grilled chicken on indoor grill

I didn’t prep anything for dinners throughout the week, instead I just planned meals that could be put together quickly each night. It worked out pretty week!

As usual I’m joining Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers  for their meal planning link-up!

How were your workouts last week?

  1. This is my second week of easing back into running and I’m happy to be taking it slow, too. I’m just happy to be outside and moving again, and a little nice weather doesn’t hurt either! I like the idea of focusing on strength…it would take me away from the obsession of trying to focus on increasing time or distance with my running, which isn’t my goal just yet.

    1. Its so nice to be able to enjoy some runs outside, glad you are doing the same! I have really been enjoying the strength training and hopefully it will help with my return to running!

    1. We have been having burgers like every week lately because they are so easy and don’t require any meal prep. Cooking for 2 days straight is definitely tiring, I’m sure- I would need a break after all that as well!

    1. It can be tough to come up with new meal ideas all the time. Lately I have been in a slump and just makes the same things each week unless i happen to scroll through my pinterest boards and see something that looks good.

  2. My go to is always rice/chicken/veggies and some kind of stir fry sauce… it always fills me up and the stir fry sauce makes everything really yummy. I wish I had the patience for meal planning!!

    1. Its funny because sometimes I wish that I could just be more spontaneous with my meals:)

  3. As you know, I had zero workouts last week. Your week looks great. Progress! One of my new quick meals is just a stir fry with either chicken or beef and any veggies on hand. OR making a veggie scramble. It’s also my way to use up veggies I buy but havent gotten around to preparing. I love your meal prep posts.

    1. Stir fries are so great and I had forgotten about them for awhile. Veggie scrambles sound good too!
