2/18: Meals and Fitness for the Week

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Hope you’ve enjoyed the weekend. We had an awesome 8 days in San Diego (another photo bomb of a post is on the wayyyyy) and it’s time to head back to V-town. The longer we stay in San Diego makes Valdosta seem like it was a dream. Doing all of our laundry at the hotel and starting to pack up suitcases feels pretty surreal.

While I’m not super pumped about heading back, it will feel nice to eat some home-cooked meals again (and see Bell and Caro! We’ve missed their furry faces so much). We’ve gone out to eat a lot, and after an avalanche of cocktails, I’m ready for some more water and herbal tea in my life.

Here’s what’s on the tentative dinner menu this week:

Sunday: OUT

Monday: Chicken tortilla soup 

Tuesday: Sunbasket (Steak and sweet potato frites with kale and mushrooms)

Wednesday: Sunbasket (Chicken polpette alla marinara with pine nuts and cauliflower rice)

Thursday: Golden Soup and Kale Caesar salads

Friday: Easy garlic-lime salmon with rice and veggies

Saturday: OUT

For breakfasts and snacks, I’m going to make some more protein baked oatmeal – and take pics this time so I can post the recipe! – Paleo bread, chop veggies for salad, make a batch of amazeballs, and enjoy lots of these smoothies.

Workout-wise, it’s back in the swing of teaching and doing my own thing this week. While we were in San Diego, I got to take so many fun fitness classes: Orangetheory, barre body, spin, lift weights at Point Loma Sports Club, and I even ended up subbing a spin class yesterday!

Here’s my playlist:

I was thrilled with they asked me to teach Saturday spin since I was back in town, and it was blast. There wasn’t an empty bike in the room and the mirrors were completely fogged up when we finished. So good.

Here’s what’s on the plan this week:

Sunday: OFF

Monday: Teach Zumba

Tuesday: Legs and Abs (similar)

Wednesday: Teach Barre, Zumba, and short arms workout 

Thursday: OFF

Friday: Total body circuit (similar) + easy cardio

Saturday: Peloton spin class (I use the app and my own spin bike. I’ve been stalking their new treadmill like a giant creeper)

So, tell me friends: what’s on the menu this week? Are you planning and prepping today? If you can add anything to your home gym, what would you choose?

    I would add a spin bike to my home gym in a second if we had space! So glad you had such a great trip.

    I love seeing your meal plans for the week! I’ve been wanting to try that golden soup, but I’m a little nervous about the turmeric dying my kitchen, do you have any tips? Glad you had a great trip to San Diego!

    I was so proud of myself when I had my meal plan and shopping done on Friday! Then, all i had to do was an hour or some prep for hubby’s lunches. Always takes longer when I photograph of course btu the instant pot helps speed things along!

    I’ve been flying by the seat of my pants lately, so thank baby Jesus that I have sunbasket coming this week. That golden soup sounds divine, I definitely want to make that soon!

    Hey thanks for the hair stylist rec! I saw Shaylyn on Saturday for a cut and she is fantastic!

    Do you like the peloton app?? I’m assuming you can’t link up the app to a non-peloton bike to see what resistance and such you’re at?
