Last week’s workouts + next week’s meal plan 13

Good morning! I’m so glad it’s Friday, how about you? I’m checking out the Go Red for Women luncheon today (details on my partnership with the Cleveland AHA here!) and will be enjoying a prenatal massage and haircut tomorrow. Can’t. wait.

I am so glad it’s Friday…how about you?? No particular reason – I had a good week! – but I’m just ready for quality time with my crew. Mike and I are hoping to sneak out for a date night, plus Vera and I have our last dance class. FINGERS CROSSED we all make it…

Hello and Happy Friday! Is it summer yet 🙂 Vera and I are sick again (hoarse voices and some stuffiness) and I’m totally. over. it. Anyway, check out my recap of the last week of workouts plus our meal plan for the coming week. Have a great weekend! Photo by MichaĹ‚ Grosicki on Unsplash Last…

Last week’s workouts… + next week’s meal plans 10

Oh, that’s right! I’m back in the meal planning game! I actually planned our menu for this past week as well – baked risotto with greens, carrots and peppers; chicken sausage and sweet potato fries; broccoli lemon pasta; and slow cooker black bean soup. Everything was delicious and it felt so good to be eating…

Happy first day of Fall! Everything seems a bit out of whack because it’s been over 80 degrees most of the week but indeed the leaves are changing colors so we know sweaters, boots and snow are just around the corner. In truth, I love this time of year through the holiday season. It all…

First things first, make sure you check out my post about the Cleveland Heart Walk on September 23 as well as ways I try to make healthy just another part of our overall family lifestyle. AND be sure to register for the walk, yoga class or cycling session!  Woohoo, it’s Friday already! It certainly feels like…

OK, back to your regularly scheduled program after last week’s hiatus. (And ICYMI, I posted yesterday about a few of our dinners from this week to make up for the lack of meal plan. Check it out for more inspiration!) Photo by Brady Cook on Unsplash How was your week? Things were better the second…

Dinners this week: 2 new + 1 classic

ThiSince I didn’t manage to get a meal plan together in time for Friday’s blog post, I thought I’d check in this morning to share our dinners so far this week. They’ve actually all been home runs even with two new ones out of three – which usually doesn’t happen 🙂 Monday: Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers…

And, it’s Friday! I hope you had a good week. Things were good over here. I had two after work events, so I missed some of my usual time with the kiddo, but it was good to be out and about. Oh yeah, and Vera had a mild fever Monday and was up much of…

5 meal planning principles

Every week, I share our meal plan for the following week. Sometimes I get asked whether we also stick to the plans exactly. LOL. Many weeks, we’re shifting things around, either within that week or pushing things back to the following week. Why bother meal planning then? I’m not the kind of person who can…

Last week’s workouts + next week’s meal plan 5

Happy Friday! I ddn’t mean to disappear yesterday, but I started reading I Know How She Does It and I got a litle caught up. It upends the assumption that working mothers have harried, frantic, impossible lives. I also appreciate the tidbit that almost everyone signficantly overestimates the number of hours they spend working – aka…

Happy Friday! What a week – oof. It was all good stuff, but tiring. Vera and I drove down to Mike’s work yesterday for the annual family day. We chatted with colleagues, chased the kiddo around and enjoyed a good meal. It was lots of fun! Before signing off for the weekend, I wanted to…
