Weekly Menu Plan & Fitness Recap {2/28}

Hey there!! Has anyone watched Fuller House yet? Full House was one of my favorites growing up and I'd love to watch this new show. I'm seeing so many people talking about watching it! But we are one of the only families left that doesn't have NetFlix. Whomp, whomp. 

Anyway... I hope you're all having a good weekend! Mine has been great so far! Yesterday, was my day off, so I took full advantage! After dropping Addison off at school, I went to the gym and had a great workout. Then I had breakfast and went to the chiropractor for a message and adjustment! We picked Addison up from school and had family movie night (The Good Dinosaur was such a cute movie!)
Today, we worked around the house a bit, went to pick up the camper where we camped last weekend (we weren't sure what the weather was going to be like, so thought we might camp again this weekend) where I got in a 3 mile run.
Then came home and had my family over for dinner. Tomorrow will be the usual for me...church, grocery shopping, laundry and meal/food prep.

So, here's what I'm planning for the week:

Menu Plan:
Sunday - Grilled London Broil
Monday - Grilled Honey Lime Chicken
Tuesday - Turkey Tacos
Wednesday - White Bean Chicken Chili
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Chicken Rollatini
Saturday - Grilled Turkey Patties

Fitness Recap:
I started a new workout program this past week and I'm in LOVE with it!! I'm in the process of joining a local gym and have been using a guest pass the last week. I'm hoping that everything goes through in time for my membership to start on Tuesday, so fingers crossed!
Sunday - 5 mile run
Monday - JM Body Revolution Workout 1
Tuesday - JM 6 Week 6 Pack - Level 1 & LiveFit Day 1: Chest/Triceps
Wednesday - LiveFit: Back/Biceps
Thursday - LiveFit: Legs/Calves
Friday - LiveFit Day 4: Shoulders & Abs
Saturday - 3 mile run

I hope you all have a great week!

So long for today...

Friday "Fun" 2/19

Alright, I know. I've been a terrible blogger lately. I promise, it's not you. It's me. Life has been pretty chaotic lately. (Do I say that all the time?!) it's really thrown this super structured person for a loop not to have the regular routine going. So, I thought I would take some time to "catch up" with you all. I guess this could have also have been a Life Lately post, but since it's Friday, I went with it. I'm not even going to number these, because I honestly have no idea where this post will go. So, let's get to it...

This forecast. I'm so excited for this weekend. I haven't been able to run for a few weeks and I'm really looking forward to getting some miles in. Which brings me to...

...this shirt. Do I really need to say anymore?!

This book! Have you read it? It was so good! I get so obsessed when I start a book...just ask TC. This one took a bit to get into, and I was so annoyed at the main character pretty often, but the HUGE twist towards the end made all of those frustrations worth it.

This challenge. It's honestly life changing. I've learned so much about nutrition, how to eat and what my body really needs through Advocare. It all started with a challenge. If 24 Days is too much, the cleanse might be for you. Seriously, whatever your needs or budget, we can find something that works for you. Just shoot me an email: southliveyankee@gmail.com. Which leads me to...

...this company. I've feel that I've grown so much since I got serious about this. I'm such a more positive person. I'm learning to walk away from the drama in life and focus on the good things more than dwell on the bad. Crazy to think that a direct sales company could have such an impact, right? If you're looking for a change, it could have the same effect on you. I'm always looking to expand my team!

And finally, this water heater. Our water heater went out on us last weekend. It was limping along for a couple of weeks and finally gave out. We knew this was coming and thanks to Amazon Prime, we were able to save money and have it in just a few days. Thanks to my parents for letting us and the kids take over their house for a couple of days!!

Ok, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!! We will be camping, so be on the lookout for lots of fun pictures!

So long for today...

Weekly Meal Plan & Fitness Recap {2/14}

Happy Valentines Day everyone!! I hope you're all staying warm and safe wherever you are. It's a chilly weekend here. It got even chillier for us yesterday, too when the water heater started acting up. After trying to repair the one we have, they decided it wasn't worth it and went to pick up a new one. Unfortunately, neither Lowes or Home Depot had one, but Amazon came through, as usual. So, come Wednesday evening, we'll be back in service!! We're still trying to figure out what to do until then, but I know we will somehow manage :-)

This morning, I'm thankful that my mom is willing to share her Spark with me :-)

This schedule will most likely change, but here is what I am thinking about for this week...

Menu Plan:
Sunday - Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole
Monday - Crockpot Roast Beef
Tuesday - Sausage & Bean Soup with Pasta
Wednesday - Grilled Shrimp
Thursday - Chick Fil a Spirit Night
Friday - Big Mac Attack
Saturday - Chicken Rollatini

Fitness Recap:
Sunday - 21 DF Cardio Fix
Monday - 21 DF Dirty 30
Tuesday - Rest
Wednesday - 21 DF Lower Fix
Thursday - 21 DF Upper Fix Extreme
Friday - 21 DF Plyo Fix Extreme
Saturday - TurboFire 45 Fire Class

I hope you all have a great week!! So long for today...

Weekly Menu Plan & Fitness Recap {2/7ish}

I can't believe I'm so late getting this posted. Life has been super busy lately...all good things though :-) I went to a ladies AdvoCare event last Thursday. The speaker was Dr. Ajia Brameus from the science and medical board. She was so informative. I could have listened to her talk for hours. I love that Advocare is all about informing people about not only their products, but health in general.

It's going to be a (relatively) cold week this week. It's a good thing I have soup planned for a couple of days!!  Since it's going to be chilly, my running will have to be put on the back burner. I am a Southernized Yankee and I don't like running in the cold!! People always think this is funny, but I never ran until after I loved South. 

Here's what I have planned for the week:

Menu Plan:
Sunday - Super Bowl Fare
Monday - Chicken Stir Fry
Tuesday - Tacos
Wednesday - Crockpot Chicken Parmesan
Thursday - Slow Cooker Chicken Fajita Soup
Friday - Homemade Pizza
Saturday - Sausage & Bean Soup w/ Pasta

Fitness Recap:
Sunday - 5 mile run
Monday - 21 DF Upper Fix
Tuesday - Rest Day
Wednesday - 21 DF Lower Fix
Thursday - 21 DF Total Body Cardio Fix
Friday - 21 DF Yoga Fix
Saturday - 21 DF Cardio Fix

I hope you all have a great week!  

So long for today...
