Monday motivation

Happy Monday, everyone!! We’ve got friends coming to visit this weekend, and I plan to have a ton of fun-so decided to start the week out right!!! 3 sets of crunch, glutes and my daily plank, followed by a 2 mile interval run. I’m lacking on speed so want to slowly condition myself for quicker short runs. While this pace isn’t quick at all for how I used to run, it was a nice improvement for my current running days.

How was your day? Tell me something good!

Cheers!

Sunday

Gosh we had such a nice weekend. We met some new neighbors that moved down here to Florida from IL, too, and instantly bonded.

They invited us over to their home/pool yesterday and we had a blast. So much so I forgot to take pictures.

Today we went to our neighborhood pool, and went for an early dinner-sushi!

How was your weekend?! I’d love to hear about it!

Cheers!

Meal prepping made easy

Hey gang! So I’ll admit, the hubby and I fell off the healthy eating wagon. Seems to be a vicious cycle with us, but we always bounce back. I’ve gained about 4-5 lbs back, and the hubby has gained everything he lost almost. So we’ve started back with routine exercise and more meal prepping for our meals during the week. Tonight after work/my workout, I baked some chicken, seasoned some precooked shrimp, roasted squash, and steamed some veggies. I also made a packet of our favorite brown rice/quinoa blend. Voila. Meals for the week!!

Question. Do you meal prep? How do you get your motivation back after falling off the wagon?

Cheers!

Productive Sunday

We had rain in the forecast today, so we decided to get up and get some errands done. We went to our favorite pub called the Fat Rabbit for lunch, and stopped in at my favorite consignment shop. There was a pair of sandals I’ve been eyeballing and they were still there so I got them!!

We went to the local running store and all got new shoes, and went to Sprouts for some produce.

The sun finally came out so we finished the day at the pool.

Why do the weekends go by so fast? How was your weekend?

Cheers,

Michelle
