Workout recap on vacation + meal plan link up

After several busy weekends, it’s nice to be home for this one.  We had an awesome time with family last weekend and then away on our babymoon trip.  I managed to maintain some walking, running and even a short strength routine with resistance bands.

I’m slowing down and starting to feel more tired on a running day, but still happy to be moving and not ready to quit yet! Here’s a recap of my workouts on vacation:

Sunday: 4 mile run, 1.5 mile hike

Monday: 40 minute morning walk, 20 minute evening walk

Tuesday: (am) 5 mile run – I even got my non-running husband to come along for 3 of them since we were child-free! pm- 20 minute walk on the beach

Wednesday: 20 minute resistance band workout; 2 mile hike

Thursday: 4 run

Friday: off

Saturday:  taught 1 hour spin class + 4 mile “run” home (I walked the hills- my legs were tired!)

 31 weeks 4 mile run

31 week belly picture and stat updates coming tomorrow!

For the meal plan this week:


Sunday:  Friends over! Grilled chicken and veggie kebabs, guacamole, grilled potato slices and watermelon


Monday: Pesto Chicken Salad sandwiches or over greens



Tuesday: Fish, baked potatoes, asparagus (I’m craving baked potatoes with butter and salt these days!)


Wednesday:  Peanut Soba Noodles


Thursday:  Leftovers


Friday: Grilled pizza


Saturday: Out for whatever sounds good!

Also, this is a fantastic read on eating well for optimal skin health.  Thankfully, I have never had major skin issues, but the nutrition info is helpful for anyone.  I plan to incorporate parts of it into our fall spring reset challenge for those who are interested.

  1. I’m so interested in the Clear Skin Detox book! I’ve been fortunate to have never had problems with my skin but I would love to learn more about nourishing and taking care of our skin with the foods we eat. It all started with avocados for beautiful skin 🙂

  2. I love hiking or exploring on vacations. Allows me to see all the sights while still getting a pretty decent workout in!

    Fav dinner to throw on the grill – some sort of marinated chicken + sweet potatoes! That’s actually happening this afternoon! 🙂
