3/18: meals and fitness for the week

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend and enjoyed your St. Patrick’s Day! I’ll be back in the am with a recap of the fun, but wanted to pop in and share my weekly meal plan + fitness for the week if you’re planning and prepping today.

Last week, I had a rough time getting back in the swing of things after our Vegas trip. The time change crushed me – especially waking up early for school prep for the girls – but I still managed to crush my workouts. I got a sub for my Monday Zumba class and was SO glad. That post-Vegas shimmy is something that didn’t need to happen haha. 

This week, I’m excited to be back into my more normal routine. I’m still creating and testing workouts, plus finally filming some new videos to post! Here’s what the tentative schedule looks like:

Sunday: OFF

Monday: Teach Zumba + legs

Tuesday: Upper body + HIIT (similar)

Wednesday: Teach barre + Teach Zumba 

Thursday: OFF

Friday: Legs + easy cardio 

Saturday: Peloton spin class



Sunday: Out! We cooked at home all weekend, so we’re going out tonight 🙂

Monday: Mac n’ cheese with chicken and salads (keeping it easy)

Tuesday: Sunbasket turkey meatballs and penne

Wednesday: Sunbasket miso-glazed tempeh salad

Thursday: Out 

Friday: Jalapeno burgers with sweet potatoes and salad

Saturday: Out (out of town for Liv’s competition)

For daytime meals, I’ve been eating this protein baked oatmeal with a side of scrambled eggs almost every day. I’m going to make a batch of that today, chop veggies for salads, and also grill some chicken. I’m been doing a lot of smoothies and salads, so everything is pretty easy to make on the fly as long as I have fruit, veggies and protein ready to go.

If you’re planning for the week, here are some meal prep faves:

1 hour, $20, 1 week of daytime eats

1 hour, $60, 5 days of daytime eats

Healthy meal prep for a week

Plan and prep: an hour of clean eats

What’s on the menu this week? What workout day do you look forward to the most? I love leg day in a creepy way. (Aka so tough, but I enjoy it.)

Happy Sunday!

    My plan for the coming week is to incorporate kettlebell swings each day as a personal challenge for myself.

    Thanks, I’m going to implement your meal prep ideas! My plan is to do at least 2 strength days and add a HIIT and steady state day as well! Have a great week

    Do the girls eat the protein oatmeal bake? I still have not figured out if it is ok for kids to have protein powder…but I would love to add it to our rotation. My son is allergic to eggs and nuts, so finding anything in the morning with protein is tough. (he doesn’t like yogurt either!) UGH!
