Back at It {Food & Fitness Link-Up}

Standard

Was anyone else all messed up with the the holidays in the middle of week somewhere? I can tell you one thing, I don’t mind working just two days at a time!

It’s that time of year, where the¬†clich√© is to get back on track… And since I’m finally no longer on “vacation“, I thought I’d take the opportunity to make some plans for the week.

Since my surgery in March, I became discouraged, lost my Not on a Diet / healthy living mentality and gained back about 20 lbs of the 36 I lost. Ouch. Time to find a new way to adapt without running. Or at least build up my strength again. No more pouting, Carrie.

So here’s this week’s plan. One day at a time…

planning

The last time I checked, today’s high was supposed to be -12 degrees.

That’s right, -12.

And that’s before any windchill factored in…

Sounds like a night for chili!

Food:

MondayChocolate Chili
TuesdayCrockpot Carnitas topped with shredded cheese, tomatoes, onions and guacamole
Wednesday – Leftovers
ThursdayChipotle Black Bean Burger with guacamole and tomato
Friday – Poker Night – Happy Hour at Mediterranean Cruise Cafe. I like the Chicken Kabob Munchies. They are all veg and protein and just 5 bucks during Happy Hour.
Saturday – Dinner Out
Sunday – TBD

Lunches – Leftovers from the weekend, leftover chili, leftover carnitas + one piece dark chocolate + one piece fruit

BreakfastsSlow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Fitness:

Walking 45 minutes on the treadmill every day except Friday. I have also uncovered my exercises I was given when I was in physical therapy. Back at it!

What are you making this week?

Cheers~
