Weekend Eats

Finally, I Monday I didn't dread! Today is my first Monday not having to rush out the door to be to my desk by 8am! I still got up pretty early to hit the gym and get moving because honestly my workouts jump-start my day, and when I don't do them I drag. 

We hit legs this morning and I'm planning on hitting legs every 3rd day for the next few weeks. I feel like my lower half is still so far behind so hopefully increasing frequency and intensity will help that out before I switch to lean out mode. We'll see! 

The rest of today will be spent writing online programs and responding to emails and then headed to train this evening. Weee!! (my sound of happiness!) 

I snapped a few photos this weekend of some random meals because I'm often asked for tips on keeping it healthy on the weekends. We typically eat out once on the weekends but since we were just on vacation we did a whole lot of eating out so we decided to make it a relaxing one. Usually my problem on the weekends isn't that I want to eat poorly, it's that most of the prepped food from the week has run out which leaves me with random foods to eat until we go grocery shopping. We like to grocery shop Saturday morning so we don't feel the need to eat out more often or grab fast food. 

Anyway, above we have my new go-to breakfast, 3 egg whites and 1 whole egg with 2 pieces of 7 Grain Ezekiel bread. One piece has Xylitol sweetened jelly and one has coconut oil, cinnamon and stevia. Why? Because I can't for the life of me decide which I like better, so I do one of each! On the right is my favorite new protein shake, MRM Vanilla Whey, 1/2 banana, cinnamon, stevia, and cocoa. Definitely loving the chocolate flavor with out using chocolate protein powder (which always tastes like chalk to me). Bottom right is just some nitrate free turkey with mustard and hot sauce and then a green apple and peanut butter. And lastly we went to my parents house for one of our favorite meals- chicken, carne asada, and roasted Pasilla peppers. Everyone else gets theirs stuffed with cheese, but… well you know! 

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. Congratulations on your first day doing what you love! I'm still at the 7:00-4:30 office job, but would like to transition one day and do what makes me truly happy. I just started blogging a few months ago. I'm a rookie, but learning a lot and I'm really enjoying it. You've been such an inspiration, so thank you!
