Happy Monday! Today I go back to work. I will definitely miss being on Spring Break, but I am excited to be back on a schedule and see all my not-so-little third graders. Whenever Spring Break passes, the rest of the year seems to fly by. While I always happily anticipate summer, it is a bit sad to bid farewell to my students whom I spent so much time with throughout the year. No tears now though, because I do have a solid two months left! Let me give you the update for this week, shall I? Best Body Bootcamp:
I did do seven days of activity this week and it was fairly simple since some of my week was spent in Arizona, so even on my “off” day, I did quite a bit of walking. My goals of plating my food and drinking enough water held strong and kept me focused. I had a couple days of ravenous eating instead of planning my meals and snacks. Luckily, it didn’t take me long to get back on track. I feel so much better when I don’t over indulge and fuel my body with the nutrients it needs! Going back to work this week will be important that I get enough water in the daytime, as well as planning my afternoon snack. Hence, I will keep my two goals the same for this week, too. 🙂
My workouts this week will consist of six days of the LiveFit program:
Yesterday I spent some time washing and chopping veggies to prepare my lunches for the next couple of days. I ended up throwing them all in a wok and stir frying carrots, yellow and orange peppers, carrots, mushrooms, and broccolini in a teriyaki sauce. Then I added quinoa and pinto beans. Lovely mix of veggies, carbs, protein, and fat!
Look at all those colors! It definitely makes healthy eating so much easier when you take just a little bit of time in advance to prep some meals. Speaking of healthy eating, in case you missed it, I signed up for this 28-Day Healthy Eating Challenge. That will start next week. In the meantime, let’s get this week started!
What do you do to prepare for the week?
