Weekly Updates & Workouts

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! 

PS: Did you hear that Oprah will be in St. Louis today? 

What do you do to prepare for the week?

  1. Your dinner looks similar to the kinds of meals I make – yum! I also like to steam up a bunch of veggies Sunday night that way I can just throw them in a salad for lunch later in the week. I really like your blog, I’ll be stopping by again soon 🙂
