1/25: Meals and fitness (inside the snow globe)

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! We are having an amazing time here at Canyon Ranch in Lenox: hanging out with blog friends, surrounded by delicious food, breathtaking scenery, and all the classes and spa-ness a fitness-loving girl could wish for. 

in the snow globe

oh, and it totally SNOWED. I felt like I was inside a snow globe! Absolutely gorgeous.

After a weekend away, I’m definitely ready to see my family, the warm California sunshine, and the pups. I enjoyed some incredibly delicious (and healthy!) meals this weekend, and feel inspired to hit the last 7 days of our detox with a bang. I’m surprised that it’s almost over! And yes, we totally have a “break the detox” dinner planned with friends haha.

Here’s what I’m thinking for the upcoming week:

 

Prep:

Brownie batter bites

Chop veggies for salads

Make chicken crust pizza

Steel cut gf oats and quinoa mix

Paleo bread

Hummus (I’ve been swimming in hummus all weekend)

brownie batter protein bites (1 of 1)-3 

Dinner ideas: (many are copycats of the meals I had here, so I’ll be sure to post the recipes!)

Ginger marinated mahi with green beans and brown rice

Potato-crusted salmon with Dijon shallot sauce and roasted broccoli

Veggie burgers with Brussels sprout hash and sweet potato fries

Apple-parnsip soup, salad, and lemon baked chicken 

 

Here’s what the tentative fitness plan looks like:

Sunday: easy walk 

Monday: Teach BODYPUMP and teach Spin

Tuesday: OFF 

Wednesday: CORE40 + teach Zumba

Thursday: Teach barre x 2

Friday: Orangetheory (Excited to be back at it this week!)

Saturday: Teach Zumba

 

If you’re planning your meals and fitness for the week, too, we took the guess work out of it for ya! Winter Shape Up starts tomorrow! I’ll have all of the details up in the morning, but in the meantime, you can check out the week 1 fitness plan here and the week 1 meals and grocery list here. So excited!
Have a very happy Sunday!

  1. Potato crusted… salad? 🙂
    Looking forward to recipes!

  2. I love how that Winter Shape Up Meal Plan includes gluten free and vegan options. It looks like I have finally found a remade meal plan I can actually DO! How awesome!

  3. Wow Gina, I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the detox! I’m glad you’re enjoying your time away!

  4. I’m excited for your winter shape up. I’ve been enjoying a free month of camp gladiator this January. I’m in some serious mourning this week that my free month is up and i won’t be continuing it. … even though it’s been the most fun fitness I’ve done since 5th grade. 🙁 but at least i have this option. Can’t wait to see all the details.

  5. CR Lenox looks so beautiful! I did Workout #1 for the Winter Shape Up today and wow. I love what a compact yet efficient workout it is! I just charged up my Jawbone UP so I’m prepped and ready to go for the WSU!

  6. Can you tell me what I need for workout 1? I usually exercise in the morning and like to be prepared. Looking forward to shape-up, thanks!

  7. I can’t tell you the last time I’ve ever been to a retreat–sounds fantastic. Are they fitness friends?

  8. Looking forward to your trip recap!! 🙂

  9. If you are still in Lenox go to Chocolate Springs Cafe! Its just up the road from you towards Pittsfield. I used to live in the Berkshires and it is literally the best chocolate I have ever had. I no longer live in the country and I miss that chocolate every. single. day.

    Hope you had a great time!

      GAHHH. i didn’t see this until i had left! have you had fire cider?! that is also from pittsfield, right?

      • Yes! I LOVE fire cider! I’ve been meaning to recreate it at home. Thank you for reminding me 🙂 Next time you are in the area let me know. (My sister works there so she can hook you up with macarons and bon bons and all sorts of goodies) I completely get your dark chocolate and red wine love, so when I read that you were in the Berkshires I thought you’d love Chocolate Springs.

  10. Hope you enjoyed the trip, Gina! The food looked amazing. Safe travels home to CA!

  11. So glad you had a good time! I’d love to visit a Canyon Ranch one day!

  12. What is chicken crust pizza?!

  13. Hi!! Is your flight soon? We have a TON of snow heading to New England, record breaking stuff!

    I hope you get out in time <3

    • Fitnessista says:

      thank you! i’m home safe and sound. i can’t believe i missed it by a day! the snow was gorgeous this weekend though

  14. I know it may be silly, but I just want to say how much I love-love the logo for this year’s shape up! So stinkin’ cute!

  15. Sounds like a wonderful trip! I see brownie batter amazeballs in my future!

  16. look at all that snow! We haven’t had a snowflake!

  17. Gina, what is the soup you have pictured here? It looks SO good, I have to know! On a soup kick lately 🙂

  18. Looks like a fantastic trip!! Just saw this video and thought you might like it. I think it’s awesome 🙂
