A Week in Review and A Menu for Next Week


Well, this week flew by just like all the rest.  For me this is a good thing.  It means that winter is flying by, and with a high of –15 degrees today, summer needs to get here fast.  Right now the wind chill is hovering somewhere around –40 or –50 degrees!   It is just a little cold outside.


This week was week 2 of Best Body Bootcamp.  I went up in some of the weights I used, and as always, Tina had me sweating and sore (in a good way) the next day.  I’m a big fan of seeing improvements, and I’m still seeing them each week with Tina’s workouts!

Sadly, Thursday I started to feel weak while teaching my Spinning classes, and that carried straight over into Friday.  I couldn’t even complete my workout with Rita on Friday, because I started getting dizzy.  This did not make me happy at all, and it made me sit down and think about what could be causing my weakness.  Sadly I found the cause when I reviewed what I ate for the past week.  Someone, namely me, was not getting enough protein or iron.  Therefore, my 2 new goals for this week are as follows:

  1. Keep a food journal documenting grams of protein.  This will help me to make sure I’m getting all the nutrients and protein I need.
  2. Drink a butt load of water everyday.  I need at least 90 oz on most days.

What are your goals for this week?

Today I’m just going to do a yoga DVD and put together our menu for the week.


Tonight we are having my Healthy Fiesta Stuffed Peppers.

Here is what I think the rest of the week will look like:

Tuscan White Bean Soup:  I will post this recipe later in the week.  It is one that I have been working on.

Blackened Chicken and Cilantro Lime Quinoa from Sarcastic Cooking…This is a new recipe I found on Pinterest.  It sounds delicious and is healthy too!

Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken | Very Culinary

Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken from  Very Culinary…My son requested this for dinner one night.  It is beyond easy to make too!  Note: I use organic ketchup, chicken breasts, and I don’t make a corn starch slurry.

Salsa Verde Turkey Burgers.  This is a burger recipe I came up with awhile back that my family loves.  I’ll take pictures this time and post the recipe for ya too!  Wow..That is 2 new recipes I need to post for you guys next week!  Stay tuned!!

What are you making this week?
