Last Week's Workouts + Macros + Meal Planning

dark chocolate covered banana bites

I've been out of the blogging loop for so long that I rarely take photos throughout the day anymore. Not necessarily a bad thing, but there were a few things I meant to share but forgot to take a picture. I did manage to take one of these awesome little dark chocolate covered banana slices though. I found them at Wal-Mart and the macros are really great: 100 calories / 3g fat / 13g carbs / 1g protein / 4g fiber / 7g sugar.

My workouts last week were great for the most part. I stuck to my goal of working out 5x / week for two weeks in a row now. I'm really proud of that! I also said I wasn't going to start tracking macros for another couple of weeks, but decided to start yesterday. I used this macro calculator and got the following: 1936 calories / 239g carbs / 124g protein / 54g fat. The first week or so is always easy for me, but then it gets tougher so let's hope I can make it through!

Here are my workouts from last week:

Monday 1/8 » POPSugar Tabata Style HIIT Workout /// I did not like this workout at all. Just wasn't feeling it. Also, the woman on the right kept interrupting or talking over the instructor which was annoying. Burned 188 calories.

Tuesday 1/9 » Leslie Sansone Burn Body Fat 2 Mile Walk /// This was one of those days that I just did not want to workout, so I turned on this video, promised myself to give it 5-10 minutes, and I ended up doing the entire thing. 👍 Burned 173 calories.

Wednesday 1/10 » rest day

Thursday 1/11 » Cardio Kickboxing/Bootcamp /// This one got me. I had to stop 45 minutes in because I was barely moving and had nothing left to give haha I really enjoyed this workout though. It was something different and felt really challenging. Burned 350 calories (in 45 minutes).

Friday 1/12 » Yoga with Adriene - Total Body Yoga Deep Stretch /// I loved this! It felt so good to get stretching in and I liked that it was slow.. she didn't blow through the moves. Burned 215 calories.

Saturday 1/13 » Kickboxing/Cardio Blast /// This was another tough workout. I stopped after ~40 minutes but hopefully as I get in better shape, I'll be able to do the entire thing. Burned 338 calories (in ~40 minutes).

Sunday 1/14 » rest day

» meal planning

Sometimes dinner can be tough when you're tracking macros, but when I focus on "build your own" meals it makes things so much easier. Here's what I'm thinking of for this week:

Monday » Build your own burgers. Aldi has some amazing soy protein burgers out right now, so I'll make those and have different cheese available, plus lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, mustard, bbq sauce, ketchup, etc. Waves is more likely to eat dinner when she makes it the way she likes, so that's a plus.

Tuesday » Mexican red lentil stew. I've never made this so I'll report back and let you all know how it was.

Wednesday » going out for my birthday 💃

Thursday » Build your own tacos. Hard taco shells, tomatoes, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, refried beans, hot sauce, sour cream, etc.

Friday » Pizza night. I bought some various toppings and pizza crusts that came with a couple of packets of sauce. Waves like plain cheese and I like no sauce, black beans, peas, and corn. Sounds crazy but is good!

Saturday » VeganRicha's Easy Chana Dal. I make this in the Instantpot and it is incredible! I always double the recipe (Instantpot cooking time stays the same) and serve along with brown rice.

Sunday » leftovers

I'll also be making this spaghetti squash pizza pie from PaleOMG tonight and using it for work lunches throughout the week. I sub Tofurkey Italian sausage and since I forgot to buy a jar of pizza sauce, I'm going to try it with pasta sauce this time. 

Have a great week!
