My Food and Fitness Plan [3/8]

Good morning!

How has this beautiful weekend treated you so far? My Friday and Saturday could be summed up like this - good food with friends, fitness, and grocery shopping.

Let’s break it down:

- Good food with friends: Friday night Dan and I met our friends David and Christie and their beautiful son Ben at the Catholic church that is half a mile from our house for a fish fry that was out of this world good. Apparently the church does this every Friday during lent and I am just now tasting it for the first time. We will be back.

(This was my second plate - I promise my first plate was a little more colorful).

Then Saturday for lunch we met some friends at SPIN pizza.

The pizza and salad were good, but the company was much better. After a few months of being cooped up for the winter, it felt so good to get out and socialize! 

-Fitness: Friday I ventured to my office gym and put in 30 minutes on the elliptical. Yikes, I forgot how hard that thing can be. Then, late Saturday morning I went on a 2.5 mile walk with the glorious sunshine.

-Grocery shopping: Dan’s parents added us to their CostCo membership, so Dan and I decided to take advantage of it and had a CostCo date after our pizza date. We loved it, but I have to admit I was most excited about the price of their organic chicken. Then, I went to Aldi AND HyVee to pick up a few other things we needed. Three grocery stores in one day!

Today our fun weekend continues with church, a trip to grandma’s house, and then having family over for dinner. Whoo hoo!

Here is my plan for the week - the forecast looks amazing, so we plan to spend as much time outside as possible, hence the grilling and one dish meals and all the walks.



  • Sunday: REST
  • Monday: tabata +strength 
  • Tuesday: 2 to 3 mile walk
  • Wednesday: REST
  • Thursday: 2 to 3 mile walk
  • Friday: 2 to 3 mile walk
  • Saturday: REST

What are you up to this week? Thanks to Mommy, Run Fast! for hosting the link-up!


  1. We're relatively new to Costco but there are certain things that are definitely worth it! Glad you had a good week!

  2. Those church fish frys are the best, I remember going to them as a kid and loved them, I noticed only the people who are really good cooks always volunteer for those things! haha Looks like you have a wonderful week of meals planned, we just took our fort down that was up for a solid 3 weeks and my kiddo is 15 hahaha We are thinking of making some sort of permanent reading fort for her as that is what she loved doing in there.


    Let me know if you give it a try! :)
