Happy Monday! I started off my morning with a 5 mile run. It did…not…feel…pretty. My hamstrings and calves are so tight from Saturday’s run and yesterday’s yoga class. But I slugged through and somehow still managed an 8:15 pace. And my boyfriend managed to not break up with me despite all my mid-run whining. 😉
I came home and make a quick smoothie (frozen banana, mango, kale, water, my favorite protein powder), showered and then made an egg + egg white. I was still hungry! I don’t think I’ve been getting enough protein lately because my appetite has been out of control. I know the increased miles also influence my hunger levels but there were multiple days last week that I had carbs for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not good. Well good as in tasty (mmmmm carbs) but not a good balance.
So I made a meal plan this week that incorporates lots of protein. These are only my dinner plans but usually I’ll have leftovers for lunch; if not, I have plenty of eggs and tuna around to make a quick protein-filled lunch. I usually just serve it with a side of massaged kale. Quick, healthy lunch.
W – Crockpot Bourbon Chicken (just the chicken part – no bun or slaw)
Th – leftovers or wing it
F – Thai Sawatdee to kick off girls’ weekend!
I need to tell you guys sometime how I’ve been doing my meal planning using one app for the planning and the grocery shopping. It’s made my life so much easier! So many topics, not enough time! I’ll get to it, I promise.
Whatcha eating this week? Care to share any tasty recipes from last week? Let the group meal planning begin!
