Mid-Week and Going Strong

I know it isn't much but this was day two of following my weekly plan without difficulty! I am finding that it is working much better for me to take things week by week. It's much less overwhelming than looking at an entire month at once. It's also easier to plan only a few days ahead of time rather than a month. I usually know what I'm doing for the week so I am not having to make changes. Weekly scheduling seems to be much more effective for me!!

Today I did two rounds of my seven minute workout app, did the 30 Day Shred, jogged for half an hour, and then walked my dogs for half an hour. It takes up a lot of my evening being so active but I am really enjoying it. I burned over 900 calories and spent about 110 minutes being active! Great day!!!

As far as eating, that's been on-point too. I've been eating healthy foods that are giving my body benefits. I've been eating more fruits and veggies again too. I eat small amounts throughout the day which prevents me from getting too hungry... Except after I workout. I've been super ready for dinner the last two nights!!! 

In eating healthier I'm cooking more this week.... Healthier foods too. I'm trying new recipes I found online and the two I've tried thus far have been yummy. Last night I had butternut squash risotto with a salad. Tonight I made Greek yogurt protein pancakes and turkey bacon. I added a scoop of protein powder to the pancakes as well as some fresh blueberries (I used blueberry Greek yogurt too). I topped my pancakes with a little Parkay spray and some sugar free syrup. Delicious!!! I'm pretty sure I will be having the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! 

I'm really looking forward to making some butternut squash soup tomorrow evening! It sounds so comforting and like a perfect fall meal. I will be having salad with that too. 

After so much calorie burning I'm pretty tired so I am off to bed!

Hope your week is going well!!!

XOXO
