Weekly workout recap + Meal Plan Link Up

It’s Sunday again! How’s your weekend going?

We took off on Friday to spend a family day in NYC.  We caught a kd-friendly show at New Victory Theater (Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds), went to Chelsea Market, got dinner and topped it off with ice cream. It made for a busy day, but hopefully some great memories for L!

Yesterday, we had friends over for brunch and made frittata (a mushroom bacon frittata and a kale asparagus one), hash browns, olive bread and fresh fruit. They have a daughter about L’s age, so it worked out perfectly for the girls to run off and play while we enjoyed some adult time.


Here’s my training for the week.  I still haven’t made a decision about the half.  It would be next Sunday morning and the weather forecast looks a little cold, but decent.

Sunday: Taught 1 hour spin + a few push ups and ten minutes core

Monday: 6 mile treadmill run (started at 9:30 pace, last mile at 8:10 pace)

Tuesday: 30 minute elliptical + 20 minute strength

Wednesday: 4.5 treadmill easy run, about 9:30 pace

Thursday: 20 minute elliptical, 20 bike, 15 minute heavy weights

Friday: Off

Saturday: 10.5 miles in beautiful 50 degree weather!

Long run view


On the menu this week…


Sunday: Homemade Sushi


Monday: Lisa’s Lemony Chicken and Artichoke Casserole


Tuesday: Black Beans in the crock pot over rice


Wednesday:  I want to try this Easy Sesame Chicken that Andrea tried and liked (with veggies)

Thursday:  Leftovers (just L and I)


Friday: Orange Sirloin Stir Fry


 Saturday: Repeat Veggie Frittata as it’s one meal where L will happily eat the veggies mixed in



I also want to make these Blueberry Sweet Potato Muffins for L… and me too, of course.


What are your favorite things to do in NYC?

Help me decide…should I sign up for the half next Sunday?

  1. Yum! Your brunch food looks amazing! I love frittatas (I learned to make them during our Jan reset challenge!)
    I love going to NYC to see Broadway plays. My mom, younger sister, and I go once every 2-3 years. We each pick out one play/musical to see. Not the cheapest vacation but we have a blast and we all LOVE the stage!
    You are such a speedy runner! Even pregnant you are super fast, I have got to be the slowest runner on the planet!
    If you decide to the the 1/2 we’ll be cheering you on!

  2. If you’re up to the half, why not? I’ve never been to NY so I have no thoughts there.

    As always, your menu looks delish. Eventually, I’ll get back on the meal planning track.

  3. I love NYC! Before kids, I worked for L’Oreal–I was there every month for many years. I would go to Central Park and Grand Central station–two of my favorite places. Thank you so much for the shout out! I hope you and readers like my dish–I am going to have to try the black beans! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. xo

  4. My favorite things in NYC… hmm… definitely food haha and running along the West Side Highway and honestly maybe the Met? My best friend lives there and I’m there a lot.

    Also thanks for sharing my muffins xo!

  5. Your brunch looks great and sounds delicious! As do all your meals 🙂 We’ve been enjoying abnormal warm temps for February but are expecting rain this week. The spring tease is nice but not nice that it’s just a tease!

  6. Laura, I’m pretty in awe of the fact that you’re just deciding about the half. Signing up for one would be something I’d have to mentally prepare for MONTHS in advance, even though physically I know I could run one tomorrow morning.

    Your day in NYC sounds fun. I’ve never been! I love the idea of having friends for brunch too. You sound very hospitable. I would like to do more of that kind of thing.

  8. my favorite things to do in nyc: run in central park, visit close friends, dine at unique restaurants and/or eat sushi, get cookies at levain bakery, sail on the hudson river, run (or spectate) the marathon, avoid times square, and just honestly being there. it is a city that is so full of life and culture that you really have to stick around to let that all sink in. i miss it dearly, but when i do visit, i feel like i never left.

    as for the half – i’d say go for it if you feel up to it but listen to your body and adjust accordingly.

  9. Wasn’t that warm weather glorious? Too bad it’s gone already : ( If you’re feeling good, I say go for the half – always fun to be in a race, even if you’re not racing. I ran a 5K when I was 20 weeks (very visibly pregnant), and put a sign on my belly that said ‘Future runner,’ with an arrow pointing down – people got such a kick out of it, and it was really fun.
