The Plan: food, exercise and reading

It seems my cold has run it's course and I'm finally starting to feel like myself again. I eased back into my workout routine on the weekend by accomplishing a goal of moving 25 miles on foot and by bike. Thanks for the inspiration, Clyde!

The week ahead is a "normal" week. I won't be doing any work-related travel and I don't have any events to attend. I don't have any crazy project deadlines to keep me at the office. Basically, I have NO EXCUSES. Here is the plan for the week...

I need to reconnect with my running buddy and get us back on track to hit the streets three days this week. I'm scared to think how much progress I may have lost on the running front since it's been over a week since we last went out!
M: 30 day shred, 5km walk
T: Run
W: 30 day shred, 5km walk
R: Run
F: 30 day shred, Bike 5km
Sa: Run
Sun: Hike, 30 day Shred
Bonus: one day this week I plan to rent a movie and walk on the treadmill 3mph while watching it. The last time I did this I managed to walk over 4 miles without a second thought.

Meal Plan
M: maple ginger salmon with green beans and salad
T: baked acorn squash with quinoa salad (w/pear, blue cheese & walnuts), garden salad
W: shrimp stir fry on brown rice
R: spaghetti squash "pasta" with turkey meatballs, garlic toast
F: chicken breast and quinoa salad

In other news. I got a hot tip on a new book. I'm going to start reading Savor by Thich Nhat Hanh this week. I'll let you know what I think!

Have a great week everyone!

  6. So glad that you're feeling better! And I'm so jealous of the exercise you're going to be getting. I'm hardly allowed to walk yet! Do enough exercise for the both of us!

  7. Your meal plan is making me hungry! Thanks for the well-wishes and the mojo!

  8. Rae, you certainly have a great plan to put in place. Thanks for the comment today.

    I am going to have to check out that book after I finish reading the current book.
