Weekly Menu Plan & Fitness Recap {12/25}

Happy day after Christmas! I hope your Christmas was just as wonderful as ours was. We celebrated with all my family and just had a good day. We enjoyed watching the kids play with each other. My sister and I even got a quick run in while we waited for dinner to be ready.

I'm going to be off work all week this week and home with the kiddos while they're out of school. I'm planning to take down the Christmas decorations, clean the house and hopefully get it a little better organized. Wish me luck that I can do all this while the kids are home with me. I always have great plans for my time at home, but most of the time, the reality doesn't always hold up to those expectations. It's all good though, at least I get to be home with the kids. THAT is what is most important.

So, after being off track with my nutrition for a couple of weeks now, I'm planning to starting to get it under control starting today. Yes, I'm still planning to enjoy myself for New Years, but until then, it's game on!! Here's what I have planned for the week:

Menu Plan:
Sunday - Christmas Dinner
Monday - Chicken and Biscuits Casserole
Tuesday - Grilled Hamburgers
Wednesday - Chicken Cordon Bleu
Thursday - Crockpot Meatloaf
Friday - Creamy Broccoli, Chicken & Bacon Pasta
Saturday - New Year's Eve Parties

Fitness Recap:
Sunday - 3.5 mile run
Monday - Full Body Strength
Tuesday - Hammer & Chisel Hammer Plyometrics
Wednesday - Humpday HIIT
Thursday - P90X3 Yoga
Friday - 5 mile run
Saturday - 3.5 mile run

I hope you all have a great week. Enjoy the last week of 2016 and let me know if I can help you set and reach some new goals for 2017!

So long for today...

Weekly Menu Plan & Fitness Recap {12/18}

Hey there! Look who's back!!
I took another intentional but unintentional break from blogging again. The last couple of weeks have been absolutely insane!! Between TC being out of town, getting ready for the Color 5k and some AdvoCare events going on, it was all I could do to keep my head above water.
It's all over now and to be honest, the entire experience was one of the best of my life! It was so rewarding to put on such a successful event. We had over 500 people turn out to either run or help out with the Color 5k. It raised over $10,000 for our local children's shelter, put a spotlight on our cute little town and gave the community an opportunity to be active. Everyone was so appreciative and I'm so excited to get started on next year's event. I'm also going to have the opportunity for some new and exciting things coming up for our town and I can't wait!!

I think I'm finally done with our Christmas shopping and now comes all the wrapping. I still haven't found a Hatchimal for Addison though, so if you find yourself with an extra one this holiday season, please let me know and we can work something out :-) Surprisingly, my eating has stayed under control during all of this craziness. I typically eat anything and everything during my stressful times, but I was so busy with everything, that I was lucky if I got to eat at all!! I even made 4 batches of fudge and 3 batches of brittle this past week as well. I've had minimal amounts of both, which is a huge NSV for me as well! I love that I'm (mostly) staying on track during the holidays and still working towards those goals!!

Here's what I have planned for this coming week:

Menu Plan:
Sunday - Grilled Hamburgers
Monday - Leftovers
Tuesday - Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Taquitos
Wednesday - Fiesta Chowder
Thursday - Chicken & Biscuits Casserole
Friday - Grilled London Broil
Saturday - Cocktail Meatballs

Fitness Recap:

I've stayed on track with my workouts and finished the week strong with a PR in the Cocoa Cup 5k that is a couple of towns away. I ran the hardest I ever have and am honestly pretty proud of myself. I love seeing what I am able to accomplish if I push myself.
Sunday - Rest
Monday - 5 mile run
Tuesday - Full Body Plyometrics
Wednesday - Upper Body w/ Jumping Jacks
Thursday - P90X3 Yoga
Friday - Lower Body Circuit
Saturday - Cocoa Cup 5k

I hope you all have a great week and a very Merry Christmas. I hope to post a re-cap of the Color 5k very soon!

So long for today...
