Sundays are my day to get organized and plan/prep for the week ahead. Check out my last post on prepping/planning!
I hit up Trader Joe’s to get my essentials for the week
- 4 bags of fire roasted peppers and onions
- 1 bag frozen raspberries
- 1 bag mixed frozen berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
- 1 tub TJ’s plain non-fat Greek yogurt
- 2 single serving TJ’s vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt
- TJ’s brand shredded wheat cereal
- Bag of lettuce mix
- 1 fresh green, red, and orange pepper
- 1 bag of carrots
- 1 mango
- Broccoli slaw
I ate a quick lunch when I got home from the grocery store.
In the mix
- 1 egg + 2 egg whites
- Sauteed peppers
- 1/4 cup black beans
Then I prepped for the week!
Bummer mango…. 😦
Tried to salvage some of it…
Peeled and cut up some carrots. Note: don’t put the peeled parts down the garbage disposal. I did that a few weeks ago and it didn’t end well.
Lastly, the peppers!
Now I have all my fav ingredients on hand to throw together!
I also picked up a floor steamer!! I have been wanting to get one of these for a while and I saw that Kath from Kath Eats Real Food had just purchased one. After I saw her pictures, read a slew of reviews online, I was sold. I had a 20% off coupon for Bed Bath and Beyond and decided to go for it!
I don’t know if you can tell the difference between these two pictures…but I could FEEL the difference! My floors felt so so so clean. Also, I was surprised that it took a LONG time to steam all my hardwood floors. My place isn’t that big but I was expecting the steamer to be Speedy Gonzales. Not so much.
Afternoon snack: shredded wheat + blackberries + skim milk
More cleaning and school work….and all of a sudden it was dinner time and I was hungry!
Grilled chicken salad!
In the mix
- Red, green, and orange pepper
- Candied pecans
Added the chicken…
Then mixed with 1 tbsp of this dressing
I might go for a run in a little bit here…on the treadmills in my building. Otherwise I might just do a little Jillian Michaels!
My week for workouts looks as follows
Monday: TRX class + some light cardio (undecided yet maybe the elliptical)
Tuesday: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred
Wednesday: Nate’s class
Thursday: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred + 3 mile run
Friday: Nate’s class
Saturday: Erica’s class
Sunday: Spin class
Have a great night!
