Menu and Exercise Schedule (01/26)

The blizzard of 2015 will have NYC shutdown for a couple of days; even though I live in the northeast USA I hate snow.  My gym sent out an email stating that they will be close for the next three days, which sucks big time.  Anyway I plan to get in all my exercise this week because I won't let the wretched white stuff foil my healthy lifestyle goals.


Monday - 30 minutes Biggest Loser high intensity workout
Tuesday- 2 1/2 hour spent shovelling snow ( this counts, right?)
Wednesday- 40 cardio workout from Popsugar
Thursday- circuit 1 and 2 of Jillian's 30 day shred
Friday- 1 hour Pilates
Saturday- Rest
Sunday- Rest

Who would have thought that I could be this discipline to plan and actually execute at home workouts? No me for sure but when you get goal focused all things are possible.


Getting snowed in is no joke so soup was definitely on the menu for this week.
- a big pot of lamb and barley soup with potatoes and carrots (thanks Mom)
- Baked Salmon ( my sons favorite thing to eat)
- Curried chicken (Jamaican style)
- Pasta with broccoli, cauliflower squash
- oven fried chicken tenders

I'm finding it quite easy to prepare easy meals that the entire family.

What are your game plans for getting to your fitness and health goals?
