Fit Friday-My Week In Food, Fitness, And A Few Tears

Oh glorious Friday!! This week has been mentally and physically draining. Between my medication giving me side effects, pure exhaustion, and a tough work week, I am ready to relax. I need to get my mind in a better place before Monday. A bath, book, and a glass of wine will be happening soon.

My week of food and fitness has been pretty good, but not as good as usual. Oh well!


Last Sunday, I made such a tasty little dinner! It was a turkey dog with cheese wrapped in a flat-out bread. I also had some fried plantain! So easy and yummy!


I started the morning with a cycle and sculp class at my gym. 35 minutes on the spin bike + 25 minutes on the floor with weights. It was intense, but felt good.

Dinner was Annie’s Mac and Cheese with crab meat and a poppyseed salad. I wanted something quick and this did the trick.


I had a rough day at work, but let me tell you it sure fueled my workout.

At the gym, I did a 30 minute hiit workout on the treadmill. It was a good one.

Dinner was an orange chicken with veggies and brown rice!

My husband and I ate while watching a movie we rented (Geostorm). I enjoyed it a lot and actually stayed awake, which never happens. Haha!


I woke up early for my TCX (total conditioning extreme) workout class.

I am so bummed because they are taking this class off of the schedule in a week. Ugh!!

I typically don’t share my lunches because they are boring, but this day it was so good! I had leftover orange chicken, so I put it with a poppyseed salad, rice, and a seed/nut mix! Filling and tasty!

Dinner was organic Annie’s Mac and Cheese with a turkey hot dog.


Such a long, hard day. I woke up still exhausted. I did a short yoga video to try to get myself going, but was just in a funk. Work was defeating. I cried the whole way home. After a shower and some cleaning I felt better.

Dinner was delicious! Turkey roast, potatoes and carrots!! I made a sandwich out of my turkey.


Once again, I woke up absolutely exhausted. I drank some coffee and drug myself to the gym for a gluteus maxout class. It kicked my butt, but felt awesome.

My work day was much better than yesterday, plus the weather is so nice! Now that I am home, I am writing this and having a snack.

Honey graham crackers with almond butter and dark chocolate. YUM!

My husband and I have a dinner and movie date planned for tonight and I can’t wait.

Now, off to try to take a nap so I can stay awake for a late movie!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

With love,

  1. Haha, I can never stay up during movies either, it’s a miracle when I do. I’m glad you were able to stay up during Geostorm!
    I’m so sorry to hear that work was defeating and it made you cry…you don’t deserve that. 😦
    All of the food looks amazing, as usual. ❤
