My Weekly Training and Nutrition Plan

October 16, 2014

The below nutrition plan is what I eat Monday through Friday. Saturday and Sunday during the day I still eat clean but will eat whatever is left over or what I have around my apartment. Two nights a week I have "treat" meals - whatever I choose. They are usually Saturday and Sunday night, but it does vary. I switch up my eating every week. I plan the week before what I want to have for meals, make the grocery list, and prep the food on Sunday's. A lot of times people will ask me if I get bored eating the same thing everyday. The answer is no. It is only 5 days a week that I eat the same thing. I eat to live - not live to eat. It took me a long time to come to that.  I also do this to save money. I live alone so I can't really cook tons of different things during the week because it's too expensive and will go bad. There are also ways you can switch up your eating day to day. Like my Quest Bars for instance; I eat a different flavor everyday, same with my yogurt. You can read here for meal prep ideas!

Tuesday: (Full Body Plyometric)
Back in February, I wrote about my "at home" workout that I created since I was snowed in for two days and could not go to the gym. I call this "The Hot Mess Express". I create a playlist on my Iphone that is 35 minutes long and blast it on my Bluetooth speaker while I exercise. It's about 9-10 songs, so I do 9-10 different routines. I repeat the routine for the entire song then switch.

Below are different routines I do during a song. I repeat the exercises for the entire song then I will move onto the next routine. I did this for 35 minutes:
Mini suicides runs
Kickboxing cardio routines (I have 3-4 different routines for this. I do not know the names of the exercises so that is why I am not listing that out right now)
10 Jumpsquats, run in place, then 10 jumping jacks
10 regular jumping jacks, 10 scissor jumping jacks, jog around the living room
10 pushups, jog down the hallway, walking lunges back to the living room
20 burpees, 10 high kicks

  1. The hidden veggie mac n cheese - I got to make this!

    OH - and we started going to train with Emry at his dojang - so two nights a week now I am taking Taekwondo and Hapkido - Love the workout that gives me!

    And, I started this Rewired fitness plan - 9 weeks of weight training. Ooooh - let's see what I look like at the end!

  2. That asparagus looks delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!! I dont think I can get my husband to eat any....but maybe I will make some for myself next week. He basically will only eat green beans. Sigh.

  3. I've finally got myself into a few 10-15 minute exercise periods a day. I know I dread/avoid a long workout so breaking it up has really helped me to move my butt. I figure it's better than not doing anything!

  4. I always love seeing what people eat - gives me ideas

  5. i shouldn't have read this before eating, that steak looks so good. Yum!
