Weekend Fun and Weekly Meals and Workouts

Our weekend was pretty low-key and relaxing.

There was some soccer

and some bonding over playing the guitar

Hubby has been asking for some specific food items for a long time now, and I finally got around to making two of them:

Shrimp cocktail

and banana pancakes

On Sunday, we headed to Capitola to enjoy the beautiful sunshine at the beach. The toddler is finally at an age where a beach outing is somewhat relaxing. Well, at least for one of us; hubby did a lot of exploring with him… Thank you hubby! Smile

Before heading out, I packed a picnic lunch. I also planned our meals for the week and picked up the missing items from the store (I always try to use as much as possible from the fridge, freezer, and pantry). So here are our five meals for the week, in no particular order:

Meal 1: Split pea soup and a salad.
Meal 2: Salad with grilled shrimp, roasted yams and broccoli.
Meal 3: Chicken salad on a bed of lettuce.
Meal 4: Brown rice pasta with veggie sauce (onions, garlic, celery, carrots, and lots of mushrooms with a little bit of tomato sauce), Parmesan cheese, and lots of basil. A salad.
Meal 5: Carrot/chickpea stew with lemon juice and dill.

Now on to the workouts. My cold is still lingering, but I’m a lot better. Luckily, my blisters aren’t infected anymore, but they are still quite painful. In fact, I can’t wear shoes without a lot of pain. So annoying. I’ll have to still take it easy when it comes to walking/running, etc. I’ll focus on yoga and weight workouts at home.

Monday: Yoga and upper body weights.
Tuesday: Barre workout.
Wednesday: Total body weight workout.
Thursday: Yoga and (hopefully) some cardio!!!
Friday: Barre workout.

Questions: What was the highlight of your weekend? What do you plan to eat today or this week? What workouts do you have planned? 

Be well,
