Looking out the window and seeing a blue sky puts a smile on my face, even if it’s only 37 degrees out. We had such a crappy couple of days and temperatures so freaking cold (-12) that 37 seems like a heat wave!
My week ahead is going to be pretty uneventful >> workouts, visiting my grandma and girl’s night is about all it’ll consist of. I’m planning to pop in the grocery store for a few things I need for the week later tonight. Since I wasn’t home to meal prep and I never really had a plan, I’m winging food this week, but here’s how it’ll look:
Breakfasts: Eggs with spinach and salsa or Shakeology
Lunches: Salads with — spinach, romaine, carrot, cucumber, broccoli, egg, avocado, and chicken (plus a treat – goat cheese) > got obsessed over the weekend!
Dinner Options: Chicken + 1/2 Sweet Potato, Ground Turkey Quinoa Stuffed Peppers, Ground Turkey Tacos in Lettuce Wraps
Snacks: Cottage cheese, hard boiled eggs, apple with PB2, almonds
This week is a little different than usual, but my goal is to get at least six workouts in – whether it be one for all 6 days or adding in double workouts on single days. Here is the breakdown:
Weekly Workout Schedule
Lower Body Lift +TurboFire HIIT 25
Abs + Elliptical
Wednesday – Renegade << can’t wait!
Thursday – Upper Body Lift + TurboFire HIIT 20
Friday – TurboFire 30
Saturday – Renegade
Sunday – Rest
I changed up my leg routine a bit and am definitely feeling it today. I’m kind of obsessed with Curtsy Squats and wanted to include them in the new set.
Weighted Squats – 20 pounds
Alternating Lunges – 12 pounds
Sumo Squat – 1, 20 pound weight
Deadlifts – 20 pounds
Curtsy Squats – 15 pounds
I plan to go heavier next time – I know for squats and deadlifts I could be cranking out 25 pounds and I could definitely go heavier for lunges. I’m glad I have this as a reference to refer back to, though!
Tonight, after work, I’m heading out with my sister to visit my grandma and then calling it a night. I’ve had an annoying lingering headache all day. I’ll be back tomorrow with the Pork Chop recipe from the weekend!

Do you lift? How often? If so, do you keep track of the weights you use to see if you’ve gotten stronger over time?
