Hope you are having an amazing Sunday! It’s been a nice weekend of weather here and it’s been so great to feel a little sunshine on my face. My mom and I got out for a long walk which felt amazing. I have definitely been feeling the cabin fever these past few weeks.
One of the benefits to being unemployed is quite a bit of extra time on your hands. My apartment has never been cleaner, and I’ve never been more organized. I also went to the gym every day last week. In addition to my regular workouts I took a yoga class which was very relaxing, and then even hit up the treadmill for a long walk while listening to a podcast. When the weather is nicer and I get out more I do not usually go to the gym every day, but lately it’s been a must just to move and keep my sanity intact.
This week is pretty quiet for me other than my job hunting, but I have also been studying to take my personal training certification. I am not 100% certain of what I will do with it yet – I have wanted to take the test for a while and it is keeping me busy. I had forgotten that science was never my forte in school! Rough stuff. I would ideally like to take the test at the end of April so fingers crossed that I can stick to that plan.
Speaking of plans here is my workout schedule for the week:
SUNDAY: HIIT & Strength
WEDNESDAY: HIIT & Strength
THURSDAY: Interval Cardio
SATURDAY: HIIT & Strength
My yoga classes are of the basic variety so trust me I’m not overdoing it. If there are days I cannot make it or have to shift things around….no big deal. You have to roll with the punches.
I have been typically having a salad for lunch every day. No recipes that I am looking to make this week, but I think some dinner basics will be featured:
- Brown Rice and Veggies
- Grass-Fed Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries
- Rosemary Chicken
- Chicken Sausage, Quinoa and Veggie Bowls
All of the above will most likely include broccoli on the side since I bought a huge amount at Whole Foods last week. I also stocked up on my favorite snacks at the store – Kind Bars, Back to Nature Brown Rice Crackers and Hummus, Celery and Almond Butter, and Greek Yogurt with Berries.
Question of the Day: Do you make any meal or workout plans for the week or do you just wing it?
