Typically, I am not a fan. However, since my Beachbody Challenge kicked off today, as well as my new goals, I think I am ok with accepting the week ahead.
Last week I told you have I gained five pounds…while this doesn’t seem like a ton, it just shows that hard work needs to be consistent and while I’d like to eat whatever I want, that’s not realistic. I’ve put together a meal plan for the week and I know this will help me stay on track.
Meal Plan Week 1:
Breakfast – Coffee + Soy Milk + Agave and Overnight Oats with blueberries and cinnamon
Snack – greek yogurt or apple with PB2
Lunch – Tuna wrap with cucumber and hummus
Snack – Cottage cheese and mandarin oranges
Dinner – SHAKEOLOGY!

Snack – Apple + PB2
Lunch – Shakeology + carrots/’ranch’ (fage plain + ranch seasoning)
Snack – Almonds + Blueberries
Dinner – Salad with Salmon, pears, cranberries, goat cheese and balsamic
Breakfast – Coffee + Soy Milk + Agave +Banana and PB2 on Tortilla

It’s very possible that I will change things up, but this is at least a guide for the week. My nights, after work, fill up so quickly that it’s just not realistic that I follow it exactly, but I’m going to try.
Weekly Workout Schedule:
Monday – CX Burn Circuit 1 + Abs with Ashley
Tuesday – 45 min elliptical with Laura + Turbo Fire 55 with Brittany
Wednesday – TF HIIT 20 + CX Ab Burner
Thursday – Fit Club – TBD
Friday – Turbo Fire 30 + 25 Push ups, 25 squats, 25 sit ups
I love that I get to workout with my friends. Having an accountability partner is truly so important and such a good way to stay on track. Find someone and stick with them!
My challenge group runs for sixty days. During the next two months, my goals are as follows:
1.) No more coffee creamer. I waste so many empty calories everyday with it. I’m switching to soy or almond milk and agave. If I go to Starbucks, it’s going to be a Grande Soy Latte.
2.) Workout 5x a week. If I skip a day, it’s double workouts the next day.
3.) Abs, Abs, Abs – more ab work!
4.) Less carbs at dinner. I feel so much lighter in the morning if I stick to salads or shakes at night.
5.) Lose the five pounds I gained!
So, that’s it. Nothing too crazy. Just things I should have been doing consistently as it was. I will have a new Meal Plan every week and I will post it along with my workout schedule. I’m so ready to get moving and start feeling better.
Tomorrow I’ll post my weekend recap and how my day/night was today. Hope you can utilize this menu for yourself. Obviously, it’s a vegetarian menu, but meat can be added to each meal easily. Enjoy!
