I’m under 90 days til the competition!! What am I up to this week? I know you’ve been just dying to find out!! lol
Meal planning for starters! Yesterday after church I hit Walmart (yeah, I hate Walmart BUT I know I can find everything there I need and so many things are less expensive (like yellow sunburst tomatoes!!) so I had to suck it up.
It honestly took me a long time to get into meal planning. And, I’m still not 100% ON every week but WOW when I do, I can tell you it saves me money, it saves me time, it saves me stress and it helps me hit my nutrition goals! I call that a win-win-win-win!
Some weeks I make my own ‘cuz I eat really simple most of the time but this week I was looking for something new and good, so I went to the Teambeachbody Blog…which ROCKS btw….and found this gem! And, guess what?! It was specifically for Hammer&Chisel. So, yes, I had to try it. (disclaimer….this is NOT my pic ~ my presentation NEVER would look like this! It would be a hot mess of messy containers and utensils and quinoa all over the kitchen! And, believe me it was!)
Note to self: BE SURE TO CHECK PRICES CLOSER ON BERRIES. You can’t see them but I bought blueberries and they were almost $7 a container!!!! And, they are NOT big containers. Pretty sure I ate up anything I saved by going to Walmart with that mistake lol. I may try stock up on frozen berries if I do these again. I LOVE fresh berries but hot dang sometimes they are just too expensive.
These parfaits are TOTALLY going on my go-to list! Soooo delish! Don’t like greek yogurt? It’s an acquired taste but now I don’t even like regular yogurt. I like it best by buying it plain and adding in my own vanilla extract and a little raw honey. I would suggest not buying the pre-flavored stuff ~ just added things in there that aren’t really necessary and this easy fix tastes so much better IMO!
My egg cups. Yeah, not pretty. But delish.
So, yes, I’m only 1 day in and things are soooooo good! The quinoa and greek yogurt and berry parfaits?!? #yesplease Well, everything I’ve tried so far actually! #yesplease #ummmmyummmm #LYPyummo
What’s the white stuff you ask? Cotija cheese! How have I never tried this before? Soooo good!
What’s the saying? Fail to plan, plan to fail?
I am NOT failing this week! I had a tragic Nutella incident last night and let’s just say one of us didn’t survive.
So, tell me. Do you meal plan and prep? If not…..tell me WHY! 🙂
And, my workouts!
I work out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday every week! I have 6 Hammer&Chisel workouts, 2 to 3 HIIT cardio sessions that I use TurboFire for or hit the pavement outside for interval running AND of course if you know me squats almost daily. AND, Fridays completely a rest day. I don’t even do my squats on Fridays!!!
Monday ~ Chisel Agility (love this workout!)
Tuesday ~ Hammer Power (SO hard but SO good!) & HIIT/interval
Wednesday ~ Total Body Chisel (this workout rocks, too!)
Thursday ~ Hammer Power (SO hard but SO good!) & HIIT/interval
Friday ~ REST DAY
Saturday ~ Chisel Balance (my nemesis) & ISO Speed Hammer (shortest of all the H&C workouts coming in at 24 minutes ~ it feels like a rest day when this one comes up in the rotation! But, it’s no joke! (double up to catch up….somehow got behind a workout last week)
Sunday ~ Chisel Endurance (again LOVE this workout!) & HIIT/interval
I’ll post later this week or next week on the interval run that I’m addicted to these days!
Have a great week everyone!!!
