What a beautiful, cool weekend here! Such a contrast to the 90 degrees last Saturday. Are you having similar weather? I was actually chilly at my 4 year old’s soccer game yesterday!
I’m going to keep this quick today… first up, workouts:
Sunday: 35 minute spin intervals + 15 minute upper body weights at the gym
Monday: 5 mile run
Tuesday: Quick elliptical/weights combo (about 30 minutes total) – squats with presses, push ups, walking lunges, calf raises, and planks
Wednesday: 6 mile interval run (with 5 x 400 repeats ranging 1:33-1:37)
Friday: 10 minutes resistance bands + 1 hour walk with baby
Saturday: 10 miles- first double digit run post baby! (ave. 9:05 pace)
I set out yesterday hoping for 10, but willing to adjust as my body needed. But with the cooler weather and a better night of (still broken) sleep, I felt great! Yay! It’s so nice to feel “normal”-ish again and for some reason running is one of those things for me that signals when things are back to normal.
Here’s our meal plan:
Sunday: Ordering pizza* (+ large salad with chicken for me and a sweet potato for week two of the reset)
Monday: Sirloin Steak Fajita Bowls
Tuesday: Shrimp Stir Fry + Brown Rice
Wednesday: Whole Chicken in the crock pot + Sauteed kale + Sweet Potato “Fries”
Thursday: Stuffed Acorn Squash with turkey sausage and apple
Friday: Chickpea Curry in the Crock pot
*Pizza is L’s choice for a prize for filling her marble jar… we started marbles as a behavioral modification system after baby, which has helped tremendously with her choices and behavior!
