Sunday, ol Sunday 🙂
Yes, the weekend is almost over and it is time for a new week. I embrace Monday’s as to me I think of it as a fresh start to get the things I want in life right. I know it is not always that easy, but I try to tell myself this each week. This way I go into the week with a positive mind-set. So bring on Monday!
Today I took a trip to Costco because I needed to renew my membership and grab a couple of items for this week’s meal prepping. When I got to the counter to renew my membership, I greeted the lady at the counter how I would normally greet someone. Immediately after my greeting her she began to tell me how she thought my spirit was beautiful and how my smile and joy beams off of me. That really made my day. It got better though. After I thanked her, I took out my bank card so that I can pay for the renewal fees, however she told me that my account had been upgraded for free AND for two years! My heart melted. I was shocked, but thankful/grateful. I thanked her over and over and promised her that I would pay it forward. Needless to say, my shopping right after was awesome
At Costco I got some plums, nuts, greens, brown rice and my husband his snacks. It was jammed packed, so I was surprised that I was able to get in and out in an hour. Immediately after I left I went to the local grocery store to buy some green peppers (I didn’t want to buy them in bulk at Costco since we do not eat them in plenty) and I got some mustard and turnip greens. I came home at started my meal prepping.
For my meal prepping, I made egg muffins, greens (mustard and turnips), baked jerk chicken and brown rice. For breakfast I will have two egg muffins and on the side some sliced cucumbers. For lunch I will have baked chicken, 1.75 cups of the mustard and turnips and a half of cup of brown rice. I am trying my hardest to get more greens in hence the cucumbers and greens. For dinner I am not sure what I will have, but I am thinking salmon and either a salad or some broccoli. My snacks are plums and cottage cheese. I am anxious to see how this will go for the week as this is my first week back at meal prepping. Let’s see.
For exercise this week, I want to go to the gym Mon-Sat and I plan to do a cardio each workout and this week I will add weight training. I do not want to get burned out so I want to see how this week goes and I will adjust accordingly. I also am planning to get to the vitamin store so that I can pick up vitamin D and magnesium. Vitamin D is an obvious pickup and the magnesium I want to add for a while to help relax my muscles since they are so sore from introducing exercise back into my days.
That’s it. That’s where I would like to keep my focus this week. Stay the course with my eating and get my exercise in. I believe I am ready to have a great week, but you know sleep is important too. So with that being duly noted, off to shower and get ready to jump in my sweet, sweet bed.
Gonna kick ass this week, mmmmkay?
Until I blog again,
