Hi everyone! I am going to keep this weekly meal plan post short and to the point. Between finishing up my ebook, keeping up with all things blogging, and making sure my house doesn’t look like a daily bomb has gone off I am exhausted. But I am still plugging away because the light at the end of the tunnel is within sight! My ebook is still on schedule! WOOHOO! I am meeting with my designer again tomorrow to start the fine tuning. What a process! But it is worth it and I know you will think so too. So fingers and toes are still crossed for the launch date of THIS Sunday. Also, if you are a blogger and think you would be interested in becoming an affiliate for my ebook then stay tuned because I am launching an affiliate program to go with it.
Okay, let’s get to weigh in.
Here are my numbers.
Yay for losing 1.5 pounds this week. It is amazing what happens when I am intentional with my food and prioritize exercise. Now I need to keep going because I want to be bikini ready by July. Not kidding! I am turning 40 this summer and it is my goal to wear a bikini loud and proud. Wow I think I am really getting loopy tonight.
Here is my exercise schedule this week.
45 minutes on the treadmill (10 minute warm up, 20 minute run, 10 minute power walk on incline, 5 minute cool down). Some people have asked why I run/power walk so much on the treadmill. Honestly, I know I could get more/better results switching up my cardio routine but I love to run. It is good for my brain and emotional well-being. I feel very focused when I get done running. So I run more for my brain than I do my butt.
2 (30 second) russian twists
2 (30 second) planks

16 bicep curls with resistant bands
