Weekly Food and Fitness Plan #2

Good morning and Happy Sunday!

How is your weekend treating you?  Mine is going well - yesterday morning Danielle and I busted out 8 hilly miles,

to squeeze in another swim

Friday: my birthday - going out to eat with family 
Saturday - going to a wedding where I will eat cake 


Sunday: 12 mile bike + one mile run
Monday: rest
Tuesday: 3 mile run
Wednesday: 6 mile bike + 500 meter swim

Dan's family member Stacie doesn't have a blog, but she did tell me what her plan was last week which I loved it so much and wanted to share with you:
I can never get 60 minutes in a row dedicated to exercise so I am trying to do 15 minutes of stretching/yoga in before work, 10 minutes of power walking on each of my breaks for 30 total minutes of cardio, and then 15 minutes of resistance/weights after work. Food focus this week is "plate planning" with half the plate whole fruit and veggies, 1/4 whole grain carbs and 1/4 lean protein. Continuing to count the calories, trying to stay under 1200/day and keep white sugar, white flour, and saturated fat off the plate.

Isn't that awesome!?!  I feel like that is a simple, but wonderful plan. :)  Thanks Stacie!
Have a blessed Sunday!


  1. Love Stacie's simple visual idea of "plate planning"! I am definitely going to try that as I pack my lunches for this week. Just checking, though, isn't eating under 1200 calories a day generally not recommended?

  2. Ha, two weeks in a row we've had one of the same menu items. Great minds, Racheal, great minds.

    1. Yay, I think that is a good sign! I always love the meals you have planned! :)
