Menu Plan Monday: This Weeks Workout Schedule


Before I get into my menu planning ideas. I want to talk a bit about how my workouts and weight loss are coming. :-)

Last week was really good for me! I ended up losing 3.4 pounds and 2 total inches! I am kind of expecting that to slack off some this week and next week will be even worse since I weigh on Saturday’s (the day before Easter Dinner with the Family! YIKES!) However, I have been working out and it has been KILLING me! I have had sore muscles all week long, but instead of taking a break I have pushed through! They have not hurt so badly that I can’t move, but I can feel the burn in them from working them.

So, this week I want to ramp up the exercises a bit more – last week was more a “get your body over the first hurdle”. This week is more “make those muscles REALLY hurt” and “burn that fat”!

So, here’s the plan!

Monday – Better Butt and Core with Stability Ball

Tuesday – Cardio – will use Just Dance 4 for XBOX

Wednesday – Upper Body Workout at Home from Fitness Blender

Thursday – Cardio – will use Kinect Sports

Friday – Kissable Abs from Body Rock TV

Saturday – Rest Day – get in walking!

Sunday – Family Fun with Xbox

**All of the exercises are at home, no gym equipment necessary except today’s!  For Monday I need a stability ball, but I have a great one.  The link for it is an Amazon affiliate link, but I actually got mine at Walmart!

Ok, food time!  This is what I will be making for my boys – I will carefulyl measure and such so I can find out calorie servings for me and Ricky.  If over 300 calories per serving, then we will eat salads, grilled chicken, and tuna type meals.

Be sure to print out your coupons this week!  Remember, you should be able to print them twice.


Ok, on to my menu planning ideas for this week:

Tuesday: Beef Nacho Casserole from Dinner Time Recipes linky

WednesdayLeftover Soup

Thursday: Red Beans and Rice
