Food & Fitness: February 3-9

Food: Today I'm linking up with Ashley from a & o on the go and sharing my dinner meal plan for the week. Last week we were able to enjoy all of the meals I planned out.  That hardly ever happens so I am counting that as a win in my book! My favorite was the baked chicken with roasted vegetables. I hope to keep the success going this week!  I tend not to plan for weekend dinners since plans and appetites can change. Sunday night typically ends up being a build your own dinner with whatever leftovers we have in the fridge.

Dinner Recipes 

Monday- Leftovers from Sunday's Slow Cooker Chicken Chili 

Thursday & Friday - Dinner Out w. Friends

Fitness:  Fifth week of marathon training. Hope you not getting too tired of my running updates because there are 9 more weeks to go! This Saturday's long run was just as eventful as last week's due to the snow and ice still hanging around many of  Raleigh's streets. Thankfully, we all made it through without any spills. 

An update on trying to complete workouts before work. I was able to get in two morning workouts which was my goal for the week! This week, I'm keeping the same goal of getting to the gym twice before work. This week, my plan is to do strength training at home in the morning and then complete my cardio after I get off work.

Monday: 4 miles w. cardio intervals
Tuesday:  3 mile Hill Workout & Upper Body Strength
Wednesday: 45 minutes cardio & Lower Body Strength
Thursday: 5 miles
Friday: Spin Class & Total Body Strength  
Saturday: 8 miles
Sunday: Rest Day
