To reach your goals you HAVE to get a plan...plan, plan, PLAN!!!!
I don't really have a fitness goal right now. Maybe it is to not get injured?? Lame. But I teach so many classes and I love being at the gym so that is a very real challenge...to stay as active as I am, without sustaining an injury. That being said, I am still trying to stick to the hormone training (HIIT training, or anaerobic, etc). As an athlete it is right up my alley--I absolutely LOVE it...but I do fear I'll end up on the injured reserve list. Then I can really kiss the Olympics good-bye. Totally joking/making fun of myself BTW. Anyway...here is my workout plan and menu for the week!!
I teach way too many classes on Monday to be able to get my own workout in. I call it my non-Anne workout day...but the other trainers at the gym call it "Anne-tastic Marathon Monday--You can catch a class by Anne morning, noon, and night!" LOL
morning workout: SPRINTS! As I'm running suicide sprints on the basketball court
a few weeks ago someone asked, "Hey Anne, what are you training for?"
me: "uh, I dunno...nothing." DERRRRRR
afternoon workout: Back and Biceps
morning workout: legs and abs
afternoon workout: spin
morning workout: run 5miles (try to do a sub 8minute mile pace)
afternoon workout: shoulders
morning workout: chest and triceps
afternoon workout: do the stair mill machine (interval training level 16 for 45min)
Saturday: spin, abs, and long relaxing jog
<---DORK, DORK, DORK! hey, that's me! LOL
Breakfast: (kids drink milk, Erik and I drink black coffee) oatmeal and berries (we have raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries) OR scrambled eggs with spinache, feta, and tomato (I eat all of the above, thankUveryMuch!)
Morning snack options: cottage cheese, or a piece of fruit, or trail mix, or string cheese, or yogurt with wheat germ, or peanut butter on a graham cracker
Lunch: (we all drink water) cabbage soup (made a big batch Sunday night for the week and put in tupperware in fridge and freezer), half of a tuna sandwich (Since Eliza has to have a bagged lunch I will be packing her a peanut butter sandwich, a piece of fruit, some trail mix, water, and a whole grain apple muffin)
afternoon snack: same options as morning snack
Monday: my Mom's vegetarian chili recipe (made in crockpot) with corn muffins
Tuesday: baked tilapia with steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots
Wednesday: chicken and salsa in the crockpot over brown rice, red and green peppers,
onions,cheddar cheese, and lettuce
Thursday: home made pesto over whole grain spaghetti with a side of caprese salad
Friday: baked salmon, garlic mashed cauliflower, and peas.
Saturday and Sunday we play it by ear!
Phew! I am as tired and cranky as Gabe at the end of my days...where the hell is my sippy??? ha ha
