This is almost all of it. I have snacks included too, but I didn't copy that part. Green= meat free meals and Red= meat meals. I get all of my recipes from Family Circle magazines so I know the approximate calorie count. I high balled the calories to accommodation larger portions that might be consumed.
How has it worked so far? Not well. I worked yesterday morning and then went in again for a meeting last night, so nobody was here to fallow through with the plan. I want to do the cilantro burgers tonight since we already had cilantro and need to use it.
I may not have been able to enact my meal plan last night but I did go for a pretty good run. I went back to work an hour earlier than the meeting was to begin so I could run uptown and have a change of scenery. As it turns out, the Run For Your Life running group, Run For You, was meeting up. One of my coworkers, who leads the group asked if I wanted to join. Of course I did! I'll take any opportunity to not be lonely and miserable on my run. We did a 1 mile warm up, 4x800, and then the 1 mile back. I was actually the fastest one out there which was shocking.
While I was in my meeting last night, my husband went to TJ Max and purchased a new yoga ball, but this one came with a small medicine ball and three of those bungee cord things. I left my last yoga ball in Texas on accident and really should not have waited so long to buy another. It's my favorite way to get a core workout. It also motivates me to vacuum and steam the carpet. If I'm not down there, what's the need?
Tonight I have another, sort of, meeting at work. The Brooks rep is coming to tell us about their new minimalist line, The Pure Project. I am very excited! I'll see if I can take some pics, and hopefully I'll be able to try some on as well.
