Hey! Hope you’re enjoying this long weekend!
We wanted to get to the beach this week so on Friday we decided to brave it with both girls. We haven’t checked out the local beaches since moving a year ago, and there are several within an hour drive. It worked out great! Well, until the ride home when both girls were melting down (mid afternoon) but thankfully they both crashed in the car and we ended our day with a little peace and quiet. 🙂
Baby J did great. She napped on the way there, ate and napped again on me in the Moby wrap (thankfully it was a cool day and there was a nice breeze by the water). We got lunch and let L play another hour or so and then everyone napped (mama included) on the way home.
In terms of workouts, I’m slowly picking up my running miles. This week’s recap:
Sunday: 5.25 mile slow jog (9:30 pace)
Monday: 2 mile walk + push ups and squats
Tuesday: 5 mile run (8:44 ave)
Wednesday: This resistance band workout
Thursday: 4 mile easy run
Friday: 4 mile easy run post-beach
Saturday: Taught 1 hour spin – my first class back! Plus a few push ups and squats.
I’m hoping to get in 6+ miles this morning. I also realized as I typed this out that I’m due for a rest day! So that will be tomorrow.
Here’s the meal plan:
Sunday: Out (Mets game, etc)
Monday: Grilled Chicken Avocado Melts
Tuesday: Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp Kebabs + green salad
Wednesday: BBQ Lentils with rice (repeat- never got to this last week!)
Thursday: Grilled steak, roasted sweet potatoes + asparagus
Friday: Black bean veggie quesadillas + guacamole
Saturday: Take out
