Week 2 Plan

selfie-1

All right! I thought it would be too long of a post to put both my recaps and my plans into one, so I decided to separate the posts out. Here’s my week 2 plan.

Workout Plan

I thought I’d try a little bit of a circuit approach this week. I’ve chosen 6ย relatively targeted exercises that I will repeat 3-5 times and I’ve included core workouts in each day. I threw the core stuff in the middle to break up the pressure on the target areas and because I hate doing core workouts so I’m hoping everything else will look easy in comparison.

Meal Plan

So there were some obvious failings last week that I can learn from. First and foremost, I didn’t really stick to my meal plan.

At all.

I prepped the zucchini noodles and pesto, but never actually ate them. I think I would have found this meal more appetizing freshly made versus reheating in the microwave for a lunch. I didn’t even make the stuffed peppers (which means they’ll get recycled for this week) and the southwest hash was actually a pain to cook.

So here’s to week 2 and making things simpler and more tempting!

Breakfasts

  • More Cheerios and almond milk
  • Overnight oats

Lunches

  • Stuffed peppers
  • Leftovers

Snacks

  • Yogurt and frozen fruit. I really enjoyed this option last week.
  • Unsweetened applesauce

Dinners

  • Ratatouille (I’ve always wanted to try this and if I chop all the veggies during the weekend prep stage, there’s no reason not to! Although I’ll swap the eggplant for summer squash because eggplant = ick.)
  • Butternut Squash Risotto (I’ve never made a risotto either, but it sounds simple enough! I already have my butternut squash chopped up, just need to roast and puree it.)

I’m excited about this week’s meal plan, actually. I like trying new things, but I think it’s best to keep those experiments to dinner time.ย I get busy at work and don’t usually think about eating until around 1 or 2 pm when I’m suddenlyย starving.ย Then, if I’ve brought something new with me, it tends to look unappetizing and I reach for something less healthy. Hopefully these choices will help me avoid this.

That’s it for this week, friends! Have a great week!
