Readers’ Workouts – 3/21

by

I made my step goal for the week and I’m thrilled that it’s almost spring. I did skip the 5K I was going to do on Saturday. My husband helped convince me that the weather was going to be miserable. Turned out I could have gone and he felt a bit guilty so now he’s redoing the upstairs bathroom. I’m not sure how that all worked out, but I think it’ll look nice when it’s done.

 

This week:

Thursday – Elliptical, Weights (My husband taught me how to use a couple of the machines at the gym I’ve been a little afraid of.)
Sunday – Walk with the dog
Monday – Walk with the dog, Pilates

Meal plan:

“Angry Dragon Noodles”
Naan pizza with artichoke hearts and onion
Onion-crusted chicken with green beans
Pork tenderloin with carrots
Fried chicken and grits

Four of those meals are going to be from Home Chef, which I am really pleased with so far. I’ve made three meals, all of which have been good. Amber even ate all of one and most of the other two – she can be a bit picky. It makes it easy to cook good meals and having all the ingredients delivered means no last minute runs to the store for milk or butter or whatever I though I had but don’t. The servings are on the large side, I’d say, which gives me leftovers for lunch.

Year Fitness Goals:

– Lose weight. Goal – Lose 26 lbs. Down 2 lb (starting 141.6)

– Run 2 5ks, 1 10K and 1 half. Completed – none.

– Hit my weekly step goal (56,000 steps) for 48 weeks. Weeks completed: 9

Readers’ Workouts – 3/14

by

I did not make my step goal this week, but I was close. I’ll tell you though, between my allergies and the time change, it’s been a little rough around here.

 

This week:

Wednesday – Pilates
Thursday – Elliptical
Sunday – Walk with the dog
Monday – Walk with the dog

Meal plan:

This week:

Dinners: spaghetti, chicken fettucine alfredo, shrimp tacos, pork chops, veggie noodle stir fry, grilled cheese and tomato soup. Four of those meals are going to be from Home Chef, which I’ve decided to give a try. And, since the only serving options are for 2 people or 4, I went with 4, hoping to have left-overs for my husband’s lunches.

Year Fitness Goals:

– Lose weight. Goal – Lose 26 lbs. Down 1 lb (starting 141.6)

– Run 2 5ks, 1 10K and 1 half. Completed – none, but am registered for the Campbell-Dickinson Fun Run on March 18. It’s going to be so cold, though, I may back out.

– Hit my weekly step goal (56,000 steps) for 48 weeks. Weeks completed: 8
