Morning y’all! Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. We are stilll recovering from Emma’s first fever/flu. Thank goodness she is feeling better but things got scary on Friday night when her fever shot up to 103 and infant Tylenol didn’t kick in till 5am. But thank goodness her fever finally broke and we are just dealing with tons of congestion in her cute little nose.
Unfortunately, my husband caught whatever Emma had, so he’s down for the count this morning. Which means he wasn’t able to start Hammer & Chisel with me! I’m super bummed because he wanted to do this program together, but he can just jump in once he’s feeling better! I did the first workout today and realized how much I miss lifting weights! Can’t wait to see my 60 day progress and share with you all!
With these programs, you get a certain amount of portion control containers for each food group to make sure you are following a balanced meal plan all day long. My husband and I both fit in to the 1800 to 2100 calorie bracket since I am breastfeeding and need the extra calories and nutrients! Which means we both get a ton of food every day! Here’s our tentative meal plan for the week!
Pre workout: energize, the ONLY pre workout I’ll drink because it is plant based and what could be better than that!?
Post workout: recover, the cleanest protein drink I’ve found that tastes like chooclate milk, yum!
Breakfast: shakeology w/spinach, eggs
Snack: pumpkin oat muffins, vegetables
Lunch: ground turkey, rice, roasted veggies OR salad and leftovers if hubby leaves any ;)
Snack: nuts, fruit, rx bar
- kufteh (basically ground beef and cracked wheat mashed together, a family favorite!)
- healthy sesame chicken w/rice and veggies
- tilapia w/salad and potatoes
- and leftovers of course!
Of course, this is all tentative because we never know what the week will bring. This used to give me so much anxiety because I’m a perfectionist BUT I am so happy I’ve learned to have more balance and make last minute changes fit into my healthy lifestyle!
