Week of workouts and Menu planning

Posted Jun 23 2013 8:04am


Hope you’re having a great weekend! We had a last minute surprise visit from my brother-in-law, so we’re enjoying some time with him this weekend.

It was another week of sweaty, humid runs and I am starting to count down the two weeks until we get a break from Texas heat! Leaving in July certainly makes the move a little less bitter and a little more sweet.  :)

I’m still base building, here was my week:

Sunday:  50 minute easy spin + arms/core

Monday: 8 “tempo” in the heat, averaging 7:40 pace, with one mile at 7:10

Tuesday: pm spin + arms

Wednesday: 6 mile run (ave pace 7:50) + squats/lunges

Thursday:  6 mile slow run

Friday: 10 mile run in 1:22

Saturday:  taught 1 hour spin + arms/core

I got some fun mail this week: my health coaching brochures are done!

It’s been exciting to create work that I love by combining all of my passions- health, counseling, running, coaching, blogging, and still mom-ming.  :) I love bringing the many different sides of me together in this job.

I also found a package in the mail this week from Fuze tea.  I’ve never had it before, but I have been loving unsweetened iced tea this summer.  Most weeks I make my own, but it’s nice to have someone else prepare it for you sometimes. They have a variety of flavors that combine tea and fruit with Vitamins B6 and B12.  The fruit teas are a bit too sweet for me, but my husband loved them! Here’s a bit more from the company:

FUZE is a refreshing combination of Iced tea, natural fruit flavors and vitamins B6 and B12. It’s a perfect mix of ingredients, just like you. FUZE. Never just one thing.

I’m glad to be back to menu planning this week.  I found myself stressed out mid-week trying to decide last minute what to make for dinner.  “Cleaning out the cabinets” wasn’t specific enough, unfortunately!

Sunday: Out with brother-in-law

Monday: Ratatouille over polenta

Tuesday: Chicken Tacos in the crock pot

Wednesday: Grilled salmon, veggies and rice

Thursday:  Easy pasta night with mushroom tomato sauce

Friday: Leftovers Saturday: Eggs poached in tomato sauce  

Do you like getting mail as much as I do? Does skipping a week of menu planning stress you out?
