My first-ever week of meal planning went really well last week, so I’m at it again. It was so helpful to already know what I was going to make for dinner – and have all the ingredients – ahead of time. I never had to dread that late-afternoon what-am-I-going-to-make-for-dinner? question. Brian loved it, too. Win/win!
Here’s what I have planned for this week:
Monday: Roasted chicken (bought from Stop & Shop), broccoli and risotto (and corn bread for Brian)
Thursday: This is Brian’s night to run with our running buddies so he will be eating at a restaurant after the run. I’m going to make baked ziti and summer veggies for myself. (If Brian ends up staying home rather than running, I will also make garlic bread for him.)
Friday: We usually go out to eat with my parents, so this will be a dining-out night
For the weekend, I will have leftovers from the week!
Also, now that I have a better handle on where it’s best to fit workouts into my schedule, here’s my workout plan for the week:
Monday: 30 minutes on the bike, upper body workout, abs
Tuesday: Yoga body bootcamp
Wednesday: 30 minutes on the bike, abs
Thursday: Yoga body bootcamp, swimming
Friday: swimming, yoga, abs
Saturday: rest day
Sunday: 45 minutes on the bike, yoga
Do you have a meal and exercise plan for the week?
