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:
- 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.
- 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 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?
