Weekend Fun and Weekly Meals and Workout Plan

We had a lot of weekend plans, but most of them did not happen due to lots of rain and cold weather. But we still had lots of fun.

Our weekend fun started on Friday night with the SubZERO Festival in San Jose. There was food, art, music, and beer. What more can you ask for? Luckily, the toddler had taken a short nap earlier in the day, so he made it until 9:00 p.m., which is definitely past his bed time on a normal day.

On Saturday, I met my friend Lara for a free class at Lululemon. It was a great workout and fun to catch up. Unfortunately, the rest of our Saturday plans didn’t happen.

We also had plans for Sunday morning, but, again, they had to be canceled due to the weather. On Sunday afternoon hubby had managed to invite himself over (as well as the toddler and me) to our friends’ house to watch them brew beer. It’s been a dream of his to brew his own beer for a while now, and it was actually really cool to watch the entire process. I see beer brewing in our future! There was also lots of delicious food.

Here are our meals for the week:

Meal 1: Brown rice, sautéed veggies, and tofu.
Meal 2: Grilled asparagus and grilled salmon.
Meal 3: Brown rice pasta, tomato sauce, and meatless meatballs and a Greek salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, feta, and olives).
Meal 4: Roasted beets, potatoes, and carrots topped with over-easy eggs on a bed of lettuce.
Meal 5: Salmon salad (wild canned salmon mixed with lemon juice, avocado, and capers) on a bed of lettuce.

And here is what I have planned in terms of exercise:

Monday: Barre workout.
Tuesday: Upper and lower body weight circuits.
Wednesday: Cardio (either a long walk/hike or stair climber and elliptical at the gym)
Thursday: Upper and lower body weight circuits.
Friday: Yoga and HIIT.

Questions: What was the highlight of your weekend? What are you eating this week? What exercise do you have planned? 

Be well,
