{Meal Plan} Pinning and Planning Our Dinner Menu – Week of August 21

Over summer vacation my only consistent workout was cycling along with walking around water parks, amusement parks and museums. But that all changed this week!

Last week, the kids went back to school and I got back on track with regards to healthy eating and my workouts. It had been about a month since the last time I attended Body Pump at the YMCA, however, I promised myself to make at one class this week and I did just that.

Back on Track-Run DMT

Then last week, I also forced myself to squeeze in a couple of runs. I can’t even remember the last time I ran, but I *think* it may have been early one morning June when I ran with my friend, Marcia. I know I attempted a few runs followed by a swim this summer, but it was very inconsistent.  Now that the kids are back in school, I recommitted myself to running 2-3 times a week and I also hit that fitness goal. My ultimate goal is to slow increase my miles in an attempt to hit a pain free half marathon distance in time.

In addition to following a consistent workout routine, I also recommitted to following a 1200 Calorie Meal Plan and cutting back my alcoholic consumption. Well, at least I hate healthy and worked out. Baby steps!

This week, I will continue a 1200 calorie meal plan as well as a consistent workout routine.  That will look something like this:

Sunday – Cycling 13 miles

Monday – Body Pump

Tuesday – 3 mile run

Wednesday – Body Pump

Thursday – Run 3 miles

Friday – Cycling 13 miles

Saturday – Run 4 miles
