Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

Hello there, blogosphere. It has certainly been a while, hasn't it? I promise that I haven't fallen off the fitness wagon, just the blogging wagon.

But I am going to put my plans out there today so that I will stick to it and stick to telling you guys all about it.

First, let me tell you about some meal prep I have been doing recently. Not a great deal, just staples that I eat a lot. Brown rice is something that I eat almost every night. It is delicious.

A few days worth of brown rice. My favorite!

 These muffins are about 75 calories each, and they taste amazing. They are made by mixing cake mix and a can of pumpkin. That's all. And maybe a little milk to thin the batter. A great little snack if I'm ever hungry for something sweet. But I have to be careful to eat them in moderation!

Spice cake muffins with pumpkin. Tastes like pumpkin pie!

Oh, and my mini frittatas! I adapted the recipe from Child Mode and used what I had on hand, spinach and mushrooms. I haven't figured out the calorie count on them, but it is very low. And they are tasty!

Here's what I'll be eating this week. 

Meal #1 (Whenever I get up or after gym) - 2 mini frittatas with 2 tbsp salsa or oatmeal

Meal #2 (12:00 pm) - Carrots and hummus

Meal #3 (1:30 pm - before work) - Turkey on whole wheat wrap with chive and onion cream cheese

Meal #4 (6:30 pm - before gym) Muffin and a banana

Meal #5 (8:00 pm - after gym) Salmon and brown rice

What do you guys think? Am I eating okay? Please, I am accepting input. :) My gym's owners are big believers in eating 5-6 times a day. So I'm going to try it. Smaller portions, of course. And of course, with this meal plan, goes my big bottle of water that I am going to try and drink and refill at least 3 times.

Am I getting too far in here? I already pretty much eat like this, but sometimes cravings get in the way and I end up binging and feeling guilty.I'm hoping if I have a plan and stick it on the fridge that I will stick to it!

And here is my work out schedule for the week:

Monday, 7 pm - Leg day / Cardio 
Tuesday, 7 pm - Upper body / Abs / Cardio
Wednesday, 9 am (possibly) - Upper body / Abs / Cardio
Wednesday, 7 pm - Full body
Thursday, 7 pm - Lower body / Cardio
Friday, 9 am (possibly) - Abs / Core / Cardio
Saturday, 8 am - Full Body / Cardio

Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

 What's your plan for the week?


  1. Looks like some great meals. And a great plan. I can't believe the muffins only have 75 calories.

  2. I meal plan every Saturday and post it on the refrigerator so both my husband and I know what we're having for dinner every day during the week and can eat our other meals accordingly. He has fruit, yogurt, or oatmeal for breakfast most mornings. I eat with my students at school everyday (usually I have 2 pieces of whole wheat toast) I think eating 4-5 times a day is best and keeps you feeling full. You rmenu looks good!
