23 weeks workouts and menu plan link up

Look at that! A weekend that we’re home, after traveling for the last two.  I’m making the most of it, because we’re off again next weekend! I love traveling, but it gets exhausting as well.

I cut back workouts this week a bit and my energy was significantly higher.  Not sure if those two were related or not, but I hope I’m reserving some energy for the half marathon on Saturday!

Sunday:  25 minute elliptical, 15 minute strength + yoga class (where the instructor hardly let me participate- I need to find a prenatal class!!)

Monday: 4.5 treadmill run + 10 minutes with speed intervals on the spin bike

Tuesday: This strength workout + a 30 minute walk in the afternoon

Wednesday: Easy, slow 5 mile run

Thursday: 25 minute strength (as much of Jillian’s NMTZ as I could squeeze in) + 2 mile walk

Friday: Off

Saturday: 8.5 mile run + push ups

L is finally back on a good sleeping schedule (it felt like it took us weeks to adapt to the time change!) so that had a lot to do with my high energy this week.  We also some beautiful days so we can finally take advantage of long afternoons outside.


For the meal plan… another short week due to travel:

Sunday: Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers with Avocado Cream


Monday: Plantain and Black Bean Salad

Tuesday: Mojo Chicken Breast with Citrus

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Traveling to PA

Friday: PA with family

Saturday: Hoping to meet up with some friends before heading home

If I can squeeze it in, these are on my list too:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls

Do you travel often in the spring and summer?

  1. I hear ya on the weather. It’s like I’ve been zapped with a ton of more energy just because it’s getting warmer and everything seems to be waking up. I was going to make Ari’s burgers last week but improvised. I might try to make them this week.

  2. Great week for you! Thank goodness for the nicer weather. Hopefully that gives us all a bit more energy as well.

  3. One (or maybe 2) more weeks of P90X3 and then I’m cutting back on strength training. I noticed last week my body is tired and my legs felt unusually heavy. My body is trying to tell me something 🙂

  4. Your meals look so good! We’re traveling this week, too, which will be the first time in over a year! I’m really looking forward to it although it will be rather hectic with a toddler. It took us all a while to adjust to the time change, too. My son is still not quite in the same schedule, but he’s getting there!

  6. That mojo chicken breast with citrus looks delicious! We generally don’t travel much during the summer, but we’ve been doing so much traveling this past spring, who knows…we might be on the road a bit, now that we’re living in a new state… there are so many great places to road trip to from Denver, CO!

  7. That citrus herb chicken looks amazing! I’m going to have to try that recipe.

    I love to travel and sometimes long weekends are perfect as they don’t require the time off and away that a full week takes, but it’s just enough to recharge your batteries!

    We will be heading to Door County, Wisconsin over Memorial Day weekend and then we will be spending a week in a cabin with my husband’s family in the Smokies in July. Both should be very relaxing trips and I’m really looking forward to them!
