Food and Fitness 1/5/14

How many of you can guess I wrote 1/5/13 the first time? Yep, It’ll probably take me until June to get used to writing 2014! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Aaron and I went to a beautiful wedding last year. I cannot wait to share some photos tomorrow. I’m running on some minimal sleep right now, but thankfully we don’t have a busy day ahead of us. Let’s get right to it.


Sunday: Heading to our In Laws for Dinner

Monday: Fettuccine Alfredo with Beer Biscuits

Tuesday: Salsa Chicken in Crockpot

Wednesday: Tilapia topped with crab meat, and remaining beer biscuits. Broccoli on the side.

Thursday: Meatball Sandwiches and sweet potato fries

Friday: Salsa Chicken leftovers on top of salads

Saturday: Date Night!


Fitness for the Week

I’ve been managing to get pretty good workouts in, but I’m not 100% yet. My runs slightly hurt, and I can’t do a lot of jumping around or circuits. I’m happy I can do anything, though!

Monday: 30 Minute Elliptical and Danica’s Upper Body strength Workout

Tuesday: 4 Mile Run and this ab workout that made me remember I hate abs Winking smile


I was sore for days…

Wednesday: Rest Day. Pretty sore, and my toe was swollen, so I didn’t want to do too much.

Thursday: 5 Mile Run and the same ab workout as Tuesday.

Also did this leg workout later on.

booty boom

But I still can’t do lunges so I did front and back kicks for those!

Friday: 25 Minute Elliptical, and Biceps, Triceps, and Shoulders

Biceps triceps shoulders

Saturday: 25 Minute HIIT run on the treadmill.

Sunday: Rest Day


What three things are you doing today?

What’s your dinner tonight?

  1. Sooo I just opened this to read while I was doing my ab workout. And now I’m switching up my usual routine to do this because it looks way more exciting than mine haha and painful….

  2. I haven’t made the 2014 mistake -yet-, buuuuuut that’s only because I haven’t really had to write out the entire date 😆 It usually takes me a good month to catch on. And today is day 2 of my birthday celebrations [with the fam], so I see dinner and cake in my very near future 😀 Happy Sunday, lovely lady!

  3. I disliked 2013 so much that I started writing 2014 when it was still 2013 😉
    Hope you have a great Sunday… if you’re around later let me know!

  5. That bicep, tricep and shoulder workout looks like a good one! And those beer biscuits caught my eye! 🙂

  6. I am not even sure what we are eating tonight yet, I am thanking about some cinnamon apple pancakes. A new recipe I have been wanting to try. 🙂 When I don’t have anything planned breakfast usually becomes my go to meal. 🙂

      It’s such an easy fall back meal, and quite honestly, I don’t put all that much effort during the week for breakfast, so I like spending some extra time on it for dinner 🙂

  7. I’m glad to hear you are easing back into workouts quite nicely! That tilapia meal sounds so good to me. I’m having salmon, brown rice, and broccoli tonight 🙂

  8. I do the same thing with my age each year following my birthday – I always want to be a year younger. 🙂 This morning a did a 4 mile run, followed by a mile swim. Currently I am sipping a mimosa while watching football. Later I will be getting cozy with a glass of wine and watching the Bachelor! Have a great day.

      I have been so bad at remembering my age this year. I don’t know why, but when someone asks, I always have to think about it! Haha no idea why.. Love the workout for the day! Hope you are enjoying wine and the Bachelor 🙂

  9. We’re having tacos for dinner tonight, and there’s salsa chicken cooking in our crockpot! 🙂 SUCH a good meal.

      Double yum!! I love Mexican. There are many times that I end up with 5/7 meals Mexican themed for our menu, haha. I change it but I just love it!

  10. The year change always gets me too! We’ve got burgers on wheat bread on the menu tonight. I watched some football, lesson planned for the week and read a chapter in my new book. Back to school tomorrow! Have a great week.

    • Fit N Cookies says:

      Wow what a productive Sunday for you! Good luck at school tomorrow. Burgers sound pretty good to me right now.. maybe next week’s menu? 🙂

  11. Tonight we’re having homemade burrito bowls! I’m felling pretty lazy today so I’m really looking forward to just chopping up some veggies, throwing on some chicken from the crockpot and calling it dinner! 🙂

    p.s. I totally had to go fix the date in my post from today after reading your first sentence! haha

      Yes! Glad to see you made that mistake, too 😉 We can’t be the only ones, right?

      Burrito bowls sound fabulous! I tend to be lazier by the end of the week, haha.

  12. Surprisingly, I have yet to make the 2013 mistake… ask me in a week & my answer could be different Ha!

    Three things I’m doing today: Flight to Dubai, Schoolwork & Walking on TM

      Darnit, I’m the only one struggling! Haha I can’t believe you are flying away and back so fast! Enjoy your walk 🙂

  13. I just realized I haven’t had to write the date yet. Does that mean I haven’t really done anything? haha That will all change tomorrow at work… eeeek.

    Have a great week!
