Meal Plan Monday: Clean Eating Style

by Heidi on August 25, 2014

So I’m getting ready to sign up as a Beachbody Coach – a friend of mine has been talking to me about it since we went to our RRCA coaching certification together. She recruited me this week to join her 5 day clean eating challenge. I’ve been a part of this other challenge group off an on but I think there are a few factors that contribute to me not…participating as actively as I should be. But because A is local, she can whoop my butt into gear if I slack. Which is exactly the kind of accountability I need.

Anyhow, I got the meal plan for this five day refresh and I’m kind of excited about it. I made some a few modifications to their plans…certain fruits/nuts/etc…we’re supposed to replace one meal for shakeology – I chose breakfast because it’s usually when I’m in the most rush – PB Banana Chocolate…here we come!

I’m kind of excited to have everything planned – I know for a fact that planning and prepping is the key for success. I’ll be sharing images over on my instagram throughout the week this week (trying to hold myself more accountable and all that jazz). Not to mention, I also have my workouts planned. The great thing about this menu is that it’s easy. I’ll have leftovers. And I prepped it easily (hello hard boiled eggs, and veggies). FINALLY I’m also using the containers from the 21 day fix to help with portion sizes. Dual purpose my friends.

Saturday I’m doing another 20 mile bike ride, and I’m going paddle boarding on Sunday morning (yay for knocking something off my summer bucket list!!!) so huzzah for activity!

How do YOU set yourself up for success through the week?

August 22, 2014

This Friday we’re talking goals. I usually set my goals seasonally, and tend to keep the SMART acronym in mind – mainly realistic, attainable, and timely. Though strategic by thinking of my overall long term goals – lose 20 lbs, and be healthy. So my fall goals – I had to really be realistic – […]

Less Guilt More Living

August 19, 2014

I’ve been feeling really bad about being so neglectful of my blog lately. But…life. I’ve been living it. Last week was a crap shoot when it came to workouts. But c’est la vie. Saturday, my committee for Junior League hosted our first of two open houses, and Sunday I hosted a lovely baby sprinkle for […]

Friday Five: Favorite Race Memories

August 8, 2014

This week’s Friday Five link up is about race memories. I keep thinking back to what made racing so excited as I struggle with my relationship with running these days. I’ve had some epic races – and while I’ll probably never be running a sub 8 minute mile or qualifying for the Boston marathon, some […]

A Weight Watchers Recipe Win

August 7, 2014

Last week, I had  a girls night in with Liz which involved some delicious enchilladas, some wine and a lot of girl talk. I had originally suggested a weight watchers recipe that I saw on the weight watchers website but she wasn’t feeling pasta so we substituted and the enchilladas were a huge hit! However, […]

Race Recap: Foam Fest 5k

July 23, 2014

Recently, I completed my first adventure/endurance race and holy….eff…was it hard. I mean, there are hard races (like the one I ran Sunday in Baltimore that was a bit hillier than I was prepared for) but then there are races that just challenge your endurance and make you leave everything out on the course. Those […]

Weigh In Wednesday: Dealing with Setbacks

July 9, 2014

No one is perfect. Last week, my tracking was uber craptacular. Like there was no point. I enjoyed a couple adult beverages at a work happy hour Thursday, a couple beverages with hubs on the fourth – you smell what I’m stepping in. It just snowballed to a whole lot of bad food and not […]
