Good morning, party people!
Today is Day 1 of “30 Days on Cheese.” I’m feeling pretty good! I woke up at 5:00 am this morning and worked out to “Jillian Michaels: 30 Day Shred.” It’s only a 20 minute workout, but it’s tough! She does a 3-2-1 workout which means that you do three 6-minute circuits composed of 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs. It keeps your body on its toes the whole time so that your muscles are constantly being worked. That’s why it’s so effective!
After my workout I had a cinnamon-raisin bagel for breakfast topped with butter. I also had a cup of coffee, but I did not put cream in. In my lunch today is a a ham & cheese sandwich, an apple & banana, a small bag of chips & a brownie for a sweet treat! I’m mixing up the recipes for dinner this week. Tonight instead of the cod, I’m making the “Baked Ziti” dish. I have a Caesar salad that needs to get eaten by tonight and I think it’ll go better with the Baked Ziti.
The beautiful thing about having a meal plan made in advance is that you can switch things up a bit, but at least you still have a plan! And if you’re super organized and did your grocery shopping before your crazy week started, then you even have all of the ingredients you’ll need.
I would love to hear about your breakfast ideas & workout routines. Do you prefer to workout at home? Would you rather go on a nice, long run? What about Zumba – has anyone jumped on that awesome workout train?
