I really enjoyed my meal and exercise plan from last week and since I’m seeing success with planning my meals (nearly 2 pounds gone, yay!!) I wanted to keep it up for this week.
We have a lot planned for this week – all fun things, but I think our meal cooking might become quite derailed if I don’t have a good idea of what we’re going to do for dinners.
I’m also changing up my exercise plan a bit. The weather took a big change this week and it’s far too cold and slippery for me to run outdoors, so I’ll be changing up my exercise routine a bit.

While running errands on Saturday I picked up two kinds of Happy Planet soups, Coconut Thai and Santa Fe Chili. I wasn’t feeling up to making another vat of soup and I’m comfortable with the type of ingredients Happy Planet uses, so I picked up soup for express lunches for this week.
I even approve of the nutritional information
I will admit the sodium may seem high, but since I’ve planned my meals I know that everything else we’ll be eating will be low in sodium, so for a daily value it’s not terrible.
Most important, I’m excited about my lunches. For some reason lunch is my least liked meal of the day and if I don’t bring something I’ll enjoy eating I know I’ll end up buying lunch, and that’s never a good idea!

RIPPED classes are dumbbell classes that combine cardio and compound movements, like squats and bicep curls with cardio intervals in-between sets. Highly effective in putting on muscle and torching calories. I also love the spin classes because they’re a crazy intense cardio workout (I’m not sure if I love spinning two days in a row, so I might make a last minute Saturday swap) and (I hope) will keep my cardio high for when I return to running. (I could always run on a treadmill, but I’m not a huge fan of treadmills).
