Weekly Eats and Workouts

Woke up early to get ready to substitute teach in 4th grade and got the call for snow day! I couldn’t get back to sleep so I decided to eat a quick breakfast, do this blog and take advantage of my morning! I plan on doing some yoga and a good weight lifting routine as well as do a little cleaning! Then the rest of the day is mine to relax and do something fun 🙂

Today’s post is all about a typical week for eating and working out. I keep track of all this each day on my Iphone with the app “Lose It”; I’m not trying to lose weight but it helps me see how much I eat and what I need to be eating more/less of. At first it seems like a lot of food preparation, but I spend only about 20 minutes getting my dinner ready each night. Post to come about my Sunday weekly meal preps (makes eating healthy all week so much easier!). I also make sure to workout right when I get home from school to make sure I get it done!
