Today I’m sharing a recap of my workouts and what I ate over the past week.
I hope your weekend started off right last night. Mine was pretty low key and was exactly what I needed. I skipped doing a workout and recipe recap last week, but I’m back at it this week.
I took a rest day because I spent Saturday walking around downtown in cute shoes instead of the shoes that I knew that I should have worn. I ended up getting blisters on both feet. Boo. Walking was painful for a few days, so I figured that a rest day would be a good idea. It’s been a long time time since I’d last gotten any blisters, and it was a bit surprising how much such little things can hurt.
I took another rest day.
For my workout on Tuesday I did an at home barre workout on YouTube. I forgot to bookmark it, and of course I couldn’t find it again to include in this post. It was a great workout though – I was thoroughly sweaty by the end of it.
I ended up going for a walk on Wednesday after work. It wasn’t too long, but it was just what I needed.
I took a rest day on Thursday.
On Friday I headed to the gym for a cardio workout. I spent 25 minutes on the elliptical. It was a shorter workout because I didn’t want to make the blisters any worse. Thankfully they felt pretty good afterwards, so I’m hoping that they’ll be all healed up soon.
Today my plan is to head to the gym to get in a group fitness class. Right now I’m leaning towards Zumba, but who knows, I might change my mind when I get to the gym.
Overall I took it pretty easy with my workouts this week. I think I still managed to get in a few good workouts though. And now onto the recipes I made! I’m hoping to ramp things up next week though and get back into my regular workouts.
This was another super easy recipe to make this week. As usual it turned out really good and it’s also budget friendly. The carb I went with for this meal was egg noodles. You can find the recipe that I used here. Just a warning that the printer friendly version of this recipe isn’t at all printer friendly, so I’d recommend just reading the recipe off your phone or tablet while you’re cooking.
I’ve made this recipe before from Budget Bytes – she’s my go to resource to look for recipes. I love that it has 2 kinds of protein – beans and ground beef. It’s perfect for me because I struggle to get enough protein most days. You can find the recipe here.
I’ve made this recipe a lot lately, and I keep coming back to it because it’s so easy to make yet it’s so delicious too – both the day that I make it and as leftovers afterwards. I paired the sloppy joes with whole wheat kaiser buns, which was a tasty choice. I’m always trying to sneak in more whole grains into my diet, so this was an easy choice to make. I paired the sloppy joe with the Asian salad kit that I mentioned in this post.
