Keeping Up With...Diet & Exercise (Weekly Wrap Up & Menu Plan)

Last week was pretty crazy, Adrian worked a ton of overtime and our schedule kept changing.  But I did a good job of sticking to my meal plan, calorie goal and exercise plan for most of the week.  The weekend went a little off the rails, but in a good way.

Friday night we were supposed to go see "Lion King" at our local theater.  But after the crazy week (really month) we decided to sell our tickets & use the money for a more low key date night.  We went out for margaritas, chips & fajitas, then stopped by Jeni's for some ice cream.  I love their brambleberry crumble!  It was a perfect date night for us.
Exercise was good, I exercised 5 of 7 days.  Still no variety other than Zumba, but that will change this week.  I have a few classes at the Y that I can take and a new challenge starting up that has an exercise component.  I'm also going to bump up to exercising 6 days with only one rest day.  Here is how last week looked:
Monday - Taught a one hour Zumba class, walked to school twice, rode the bike for 20 minutes
Tuesday -  Taught a one hour Zumba class
Wednesday - Taught a one hour Zumba class, walked to school
Thursday - Taught a one hour Zumba class
Friday - Taught a one hour Zumba class, walked to school
Saturday - Walked a ton between working the local consignment sale & going to a hockey game
Sunday - rest day

Here's what's on my menu this week:
Monday - White Chicken Chili - trying out a Veleeta recipe for a friend
Tuesday - Taco Tuesday
Wednesday - Mac & Cheese with Chicken & Broccoli (Relish recipe)
Thursday - Sausage & Potatoes - held over from tonight, boys decided to go out too
Friday - Tequila Lime Turkey Chili
Saturday - Spinach & Sausage Tortellini
Sunday - Pork Meatloaf (Relish recipe)

As always, I'm linking up with Laura at Mommy, Run Fast & Jill at Fitness, Health and Happiness.  Go check them out for some more yummy recipes!


  1. I've been craving chili! Last week was a bit crazy for me too. I stuck to my meal plan but mainly with leftovers. A few recipes were never made. I'm making them this week :)

    Thanks for linking up!
