Hey everyone! I am so sorry for getting my meal plan up late. I think 3 days might be a new record. Oh well, better late than never. Right? Life just gets the best of me and before I know it 3 days goes by and I still don’t have my meal plan up. I think I say this every week…but I can really use a personal assistant. Ha! Don’t we all.
Anyway, let’s get to my weigh in.
Well this week the scale did not budge. I was still feeling the after effects of the stomach bug plus both my kiddos got it. Life was not very pleasant in my household this past week. Nobody got sleep and it made it very difficult to focus on food and exercise. I would love to get to a point where I can push right through these difficult times and stick to my habits but right now I still get caught off guard and then off track.
This week everyone feels better so I am ready to get back into the swing of things. I had a nice workout this morning and plan to keep it going the rest of the week.
Here is my exercise schedule.
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
Treadmill – 45 minutes (10 minute warm up, 20 minute run, 10 minute powerwalk on inline, and 5 minute cool down)
2 – 3 (30 second planks) – These are killer!
3 reps of 8 russian twists.
10 – 12 reps of the single leg side squat using my exercise ball
8 – 10 reps of the lying chest fly using my exercise ball

My Meal Plan
As always, you can find my meal plans on Plan to Eat. To access them you will need to “friend” me. My username is organizeyourselfskinny. Keep in mind I have to manually accept all friend requests. Depending on the amount I get in a day in can take me some time. Once you friend me you can see my meal plans, recipes, and print out grocery lists. If you haven’t given Plan to Eat a try I highly recommend it. They offer a 30 day free trial.
