Meal & workouts for week of 5/6

Happy Sunday! How is your weekend going so far? We’ve had a relaxing, yet productive weekend over here. I went to my first physical therapy session Friday evening followed by  a walk at the dog park and dinner and a movie with friends. Yesterday we cleaned our cars, cleaned the house and hung out with friends again for pizza and boxing.

Today I had my usual breakfast date with my friend Britt. Followed by grocery shopping and lots of playing around in the kitchen. All in all it’s been a pretty good weekend!

Just stopping by with my meals and workouts for the week. I’m really trying to clean up my diet to help drop some lbs so this week is focused on fresh vegan foods. Nothing crazy, just simple flavors that will satisfy. Lots of Mexican inspired meals on the menu too. It’s what I’m craving (though I’m not actually having any today on Cinco de Mayo!)

I am supposed to steer clear of any high impact lower body stuff for a while per my physical therapist. This means no running, elliptical, spin, lunges, etc…So for now I’m going to focus on upper body, core and walking as much as possible. I need some cardio to help with weight loss! Also to make me feel good. I’m going to talk to her tomorrow about possibly taking water aerobics classes which would be a great alternative workout and hopefully something different and fun!
