Weekly workouts + meal plan

This was an unusual week.  I was fighting a cold in the middle of it and exhausted on Thursday and Friday so I took extra time to nap and rest.  By yesterday, I was feeling much better.  I even surprised myself in a local 5k! But I’ll save that story for tomorrow.  🙂

Sunday:  Easy 4 mile run

Monday: Cathe’s Super Sets

Tuesday: A beautiful day! 6 mile progression run outdoors, last mile in 7:55

Wednesday: 1 hour spin class

Thursday: Unplanned rest day

Friday: Easy 2.5 mile walk

Saturday: 4.5 run (warm up + 5k race)

 5k St Pattys race

 For meal planning this week, I’m adding in beef stew and pork in an attempt to get more protein in L.  She is anti-chicken and fish these days, but usually goes for red meat or anything from a pig! So here’s the plan:

Sunday: Beef stew in the crock pot


Monday: Easy Chana Masala



Tuesday: Quinoa Minestrone (never got around to this last week)


Quinoa Minestrone Soup


Wednesday:  Roast Pork Tenderloin, Hasselback potatoes and salad

Thursday:  Leftovers

Friday: Heading to PA for my sister’s baby shower!

Saturday: Shower food + Dinner with my siblings and families

Did I mention that my younger sister is pregnant with her first? She’s due just two months before me, so we’re super excited for these little cousins to be playmates!

Are the spring races popping up around you?

What protein sources will your kids eat?

  1. 3 year olds eat tofu and nut butter and bean burgers! also, i cannot believe it’s already spring racing season…..the year is flying!

  2. Looks like a yummy week of meals. My kids will eat any protein, it’s getting them to eat veggies.. that’s my problem with them. I didn’t know your sister is pregnant as well! That’s so awesome to have cousins so close in age. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  3. So exciting about your sister and her baby being so close to your second one!!!
    My boys eat ALL sources of protein – I guess that is to be expected from a 15 and almost 13 year old boy, though!!!
    The pork and potatoes sounds tasty!!! Hopefully, this is just a phase on the chicken and fish for L!!

  4. How exciting for you and your sister!! I am ignoring the spring races until my 10 miler is over. I get distracted easily. Basically, my kids will eat any protein source I don’t make. SO, they will eat hamburgers at a friends house but not if I make them. They will eat prepared Chicken Pot Pie from Trader Joes but not if I make it. They will eat chicken cutlet at my Dad’s but, you guessed it, not if I make it. What the heck?

  5. How fun that your baby will have a cousin close in age. Beef stew in the crockpot is always a win in my house. Upsetting because I don’t like red meat but at least it appeases everyone else.
