Here’s a look into my weekly dinner time eats and fitness, I started this Eats and Fitness in Review series last week to share what we are eating during the week and my fitness efforts. Also to answer some questions from last week about my portions. I’m eating based off hunger and fullness, it’s intuitive. Some nights I have more of an appetite than others so I just listen to my body by eating when I’m satisfied and stopping when I’m full. To read more about this style of eating, check out my blog post on MyFitnessPal– The Simple Tool That Can Help Prevent Overeating.
Sunday: Sheet Pan Chicken and Veggies.
Last week was a struggle with our sleep schedule after our vacation and he finally decided to go down around 7:30pm, which is his usual routine. Eric and I ended up taking dinner outside on the patio to enjoy some fresh air and baby free time. This dinner was perfect and the best part is there’s only one pan to clean up!! Get ready for this recipe this week!
Monday: Roasted Spaghetti Squash and Marinara Meat Sauce
Saturday: Sweet Potato
On Saturday morning, my BFF Ali and I went to her gym, Habitat for to get a little sweat on. It was a HIIT workout with lots of jumping and running! I’m sore today!
My future sis-in-law had a wedding shower late afternoon so I munched on some party appetizers and by the time I got home I was so exhausted. My mom cooked grilled chicken, sweet potatoes, and green beans but I was so zoned out, full from the shower and ready for an early bed. I ate a sweet potato and headed up for bed.
