Meals and Fitness for the Week

Today's adventure was a long walk to the farmer's market to pick up the vegetables and fruits we'll need this week. On the menu:

  • Sunday: veggie stir-fry
  • Monday: Bison tri-tip with grilled corn
  • Tuesday: Tri-tip (leftovers) sandwiches at the Hollywood Bowl for Terry's anniversary gift
  • Wednesday: Greek couscous salad (similar to this one) plus Caprese salad (so basically lots of tomatoes and cheese)
  • Thursday: Veggie burritos
  • Friday: Some sort of pasta or eat out
Our loot from the farmer's market:

  • Corn
  • Tomatoes
  • Peaches
  • Plums
  • Celery
  • Bell peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Hummus & pita
  • Onions
  • Zucchini
  • Cucumber
  • Eggs (not pictured)
Snacks and lunches:
  • Hummus and pita
  • Fruit and yogurt
  • Cereal and granola
  • Grilled cheese with veggies
  • Tuna salad
  • Smoothies
This week is fairly calm around here, so I'm taking advantage of the opportunity to cash in on two gift certificates: a facial and a massage! I normally put these types of things off for years (literally), so using a gift certificate from my parents from Christmas and a gift card from Terry from this month is practically a miracle. And I'm so excited for some pampering!

But I still want to hit the gym for workouts. Here's the plan:
  • Sunday: Long walk to the farmer's market
  • Monday: Upper body and HIIT
  • Tuesday: Slow three mile jog
  • Wednesday: Lower body and walking
  • Thursday: Full body strength or yoga
  • Friday: Four miles?
  • Saturday: Active rest
More importantly, we're in the middle of a puzzle! On Friday, I suggested we try to find a puzzle to get going on my 30 Before 30 bucket list. Wouldn't you know it: Target had a puzzle of Neuschwanstein Castle (one of our planned destinations when we go to Germany this fall) on clearance! So we're about 60 percent done and two days in. Because we're super cool.

Scout also thinks we're cool.

That's it for now, folks! Have a fantastic start to the week!
