3/5: Meal plan for the week + last week’s workouts

Hi friends! So nice to see ya on a Sunday. It’s a cloudy cool day over here, and I’m excited to spend the day with the fam. Hope you’re having a great weekend!!

I received a couple of requests to share our meal plans and my weekly fitness plan of attack again, so I thought I’d hop in and share my workouts from last week + what’s on the menu for this week.

A balanced fitness plan of workout classes plus healthy meal ideas for the week.

Here’s last week’s workouts:

Sunday: Power yoga

Monday: OFF

Tuesday: Dance Cardio

Wednesday: Orangetheory

Thursday: barre3

Friday: OFF

Saturday: Cycling at (r)evolve + filmed 3 barre bootcamp videos


What I liked about it: 

I’m definitely taking advantage of all of the awesome classes here in Tucson. I love being able to take classes at Session Yoga, BreakOut, Orangetheory, barre3, Pure Barre, In-Balance Pilates and (r)evolve. I’ve just been rotating through these classes in addition to occasionally getting in my own strength workouts, subbing fitness classes, and hikes at Sabino Canyon. While I do miss having my own fitness classes and more of a schedule, it’s been a nice change of pace deciding what I want to do each day based on our schedule and how I feel. 


I also LOVED filming some barre bootcamp videos for our upcoming challenge and can’t wait to get the party started!! Stay tuned for all of the details…. 

What I could have done differently:

Last week was a little higher in strength and lower in cardio than usual. It’s not ideal to do barre3 right after Orangetheory (working the same muscle groups two days in a row), but Wednesday was more max strength (low reps with higher weights) and Thursday was all endurance. 

For meals, we’ve been doing Sunbasket (<— my referral link gives you 3 free meals) for a while now and still love it. The meals are super fast to put together, taste amazing, and I love that they’re satisfying while still feeling bright and light. The herbs and flavor profiles have all blown me away. Last week, we had a lemongrass salmon curry that everyone (especially the girls!) went crazy for.

So we’ll have 3 Sunbasket meals, plan 2-3 dinners, and have 1-2 nights out.

The easiest healthy chicken curry salad

Here’s what the plan looks like for this week:


Turkey bacon egg bake

Overnight oats or breakfast cookies


Salads in a jar (I’ll make 3 for the week, and then have eggs and salad or tuna for the rest of the week)

Salad in a jar


Paleo bread with smashed avocado and sriracha


Chopped veggies with homemade dressing

Fresh fruit with goat greek yogurt


3 Sunbasket

2 nights out

Homemade poke bowls

Cobb Salads

Are you planning and prepping for the week? What’s on the menu? Favorite fitness class you’ve taken lately? I’ve missed dance cardio so much, and if I could, I’d take Todd’s class every day.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

    Homemade poke bowls sound so good!

    I’m making quinoa, chopping veggies to roast, and making a big batch of steel cut oats.

    Happy Sunday!

    Yum! These all look delicious. I love the turkey bacon egg bake — I make it all the time : )

    I love seeing how much variety you’re mixing in to your fitness routine these days. Inspires me to get out & try more studios/classes!

      so happy you love it, too!

    I wish I could try Sunbasket! I LOVE salads in jars… for some odd reason I look forward to ones in jars more than in a boring bowl, hah! I prepped baked chicken breasts, protein bars and hard boiled eggs for the week!

    • Fitnessista on March 6, 2017 at 7:31 pm

      same! the jars are more exciting to me, too 🙂

    I just did meal planning for all meals for the first time in ages because I’m trying paleo. Any paleo chefs or plans I should look up?

    • Fitnessista on March 6, 2017 at 7:29 pm

      i really love fed and fit’s recipes! paleomg is another great one

    My current favorite class is a TRX Boxing circuit class that just started at my gym! You alternate between TRX strength moves, kickboxing combos on the heavy bag, jumping rope, and agility ladder. IT IS INSANE but in a good way.

      this sounds SO FUN

  6. Sara on March 6, 2017 at 10:10 am

    Meal planning is one of my favorite Sunday tasks! On the dinner menu this week:

    1. Teriyaki chicken and fried brown rice (asparagus, carrots, egg)
    2. Balsamic Beef Roast (from Add a Pinch — so good!), rosemary roasted reds, roasted cabbage
    3. Homemade Taco Pizza, green salad
    4. Coconut Butternut Squash Soup with Shrimp over Quinoa

    • Fitnessista on March 6, 2017 at 7:28 pm

      these all sound amazing!! thank you so much for sharing your list. i’m going to refer to it for next week 🙂

    I really like seeing you workout schedule because it seems so real, relatable and achievable. Oftentimes I see a bunch of fitness/health blogger’s working out twice or more per day with super high intensity and feel like a potato couch even though I’m a pretty active person, so thank you for always keeping it real! xo.

    • Fitnessista on March 6, 2017 at 7:26 pm

      double high intensity workouts a day can be a fast track to injury and adrenal fatigue. do not feel like a couch potato hahaha.

    Thank you for doing this type of post again! These were always one of my favorites and they’re super helpful! It’d be amazing if you could keep them in your post rotation! Thank you! xo

    • Fitnessista on March 6, 2017 at 7:25 pm

      so happy to hear- thank you so much for letting me know!

    hi Tina, I know that you had/have abs separation. How do you approach to yoga with it? I’m afraid to do yoga now to worsen the abs separation. Would love to hear you on that.
