2/18: Meals and Fitness for the Week

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Hope you’ve enjoyed the weekend. We had an awesome 8 days in San Diego (another photo bomb of a post is on the wayyyyy) and it’s time to head back to V-town. The longer we stay in San Diego makes Valdosta seem like it was a dream. Doing all of our laundry at the hotel and starting to pack up suitcases feels pretty surreal.

While I’m not super pumped about heading back, it will feel nice to eat some home-cooked meals again (and see Bell and Caro! We’ve missed their furry faces so much). We’ve gone out to eat a lot, and after an avalanche of cocktails, I’m ready for some more water and herbal tea in my life.

Here’s what’s on the tentative dinner menu this week:

Sunday: OUT

Monday: Chicken tortilla soup 

Tuesday: Sunbasket (Steak and sweet potato frites with kale and mushrooms)

Wednesday: Sunbasket (Chicken polpette alla marinara with pine nuts and cauliflower rice)

Thursday: Golden Soup and Kale Caesar salads

Friday: Easy garlic-lime salmon with rice and veggies

Saturday: OUT

For breakfasts and snacks, I’m going to make some more protein baked oatmeal -and take pics this time so I can post the recipe!- Paleo bread, chop veggies for salad, make a batch of amazeballs, and enjoy lots of these smoothies.

Workout-wise, it’s back in the swing of teaching and doing my own thing this week. While we were in San Diego, I got to take so many fun fitness classes: Orangetheory, barre body, spin, lift weights at Point Loma Sports Club, and I even ended up subbing a spin class yesterday!

Here’s my playlist:

I was thrilled with they asked me to teach Saturday spin since I was back in town, and it was blast. There wasn’t an empty bike in the room and the mirrors were completely fogged up when we finished. So good. 

Sweaty spin

Here’s what’s on the plan this week:

Sunday: OFF

Monday: Teach Zumba

Tuesday: Legs and Abs (similar)

Wednesday: Teach Barre, Zumba, and short arms workout 

Thursday: OFF

Friday: Total body circuit (similar) + easy cardio

Saturday: Peloton spin class (I use the app and my own spin bike. I’ve been stalking their new treadmill like a giant creeper)

So, tell me friends: what’s on the menu this week? Are you planning and prepping today? If you can add anything to your home gym, what would you choose?

Subversive Fitness: Day 304 Of 360

Leave the ego out of the equation- excellent, scaled push-ups are far better than crappy, broken “unscaled” ones.

Day 304 Of 360

6 rounds of:

 

3L, 3R Kettlebell push press
6 Mace 360/ Kettlebell halo
3 Chin-up
0:30 sec. rest

 

Weights for kettlebell push press and mace 360/ kettlebell halo are self-scaled and should be challenging in each round. Adjust as needed during: 30 sec. rest and be ready to work again when it ends.

 

Scale chin-up to full ability in each round.

Avocado Sandwich

This is the Avocado Sandwich of my dreams. Fully loaded and not holding anything back. I think the kicker is the layer of melty cheese! Dairy free + vegan. Plus, my homemade garlic aioli adds an awesome kick too. And sizzling onions add warmth and smokiness. The Goods. Melty vegan gouda cheese, fresh tomato, leafy greens, sizzling skillet onions, sliced pickle, garlic aioli and a thick layer of buttery avocado. I served mine on rye bread, lightly toasted, but you can use any bread you'd like. Let this be your next lunchtime craving... Read more »
