Basically, the wheels have fallen off my workout plan in a major way. Two weeks ago, I did weight training (at home with dumbells) 3 times and ran on the treadmill 4 times, 45 minutes each. Last week I did weight training once and ran on the treadmill twice, 30 minutes each. I had a baby with strep throat and of course a bunch of other things going on that derailed me. So, my overall plan is to do cardio 3-4 times a week and weights 4 times (upper body and core and then lower body), but that's pretty ambitious right now and I am not going to beat myself up if it doesn't happen.
For weight training, I get exercises from Fitness and Shape Magazines mostly. They have a lot on their websites; you can also check the back issues out from your library. I also have some home workout videos that I like so I will mix those in when I get bored. For cardio, sometimes I just try to run the whole time but I've also been trying to do more HIIT (high intensity interval training), which I like. Google HIIT and you'll find all kinds of info and plans.
My meal plan this week is pretty similar to last week's. I added a couple of different recipes I got from skinnytaste.com- santa fe turkey stuffed peppers for one. Sorry no pictures= boring post!
If you are really looking for an intense program google "Jamie Eason's Live Fit Trainer". It's a free meal plan and workout plan on bodybuilding.com. It lasts for 12 weeks. I would love to do it, but it is gym based and I just can't devote that much time right now. But in the future, I may try to do a modified version.
I did make some homemade coconut chocolate almond butter that turned out pretty amazing. I will try to post that recipe soon.
