Another week means it is time for another weekly meal and fitness plan. My personality is a planner by nature… so I thrive on routine, schedule and structure. Knowing what I am eating and what is on my fitness plan for the day helps me not only stay on track with my plan… but is less stressful.
Last week’s meal and fitness plan, was a yummy success. Although with my husband traveling unexpectedly for work the later part of the week, I didn’t cook some of the meals. I plan on carrying those meals over to this week.
I am heading up a new fitness challenge group, starting July 22nd, and I want to explore new clean eating meals to share with my members. The fitness side of my day is already planned out, thank goodness for that!
Here is what is in store for my clean eating menu plan as well as fitness plan this week:

I find that when my day is somewhat planned for me, I am less stressed and disorganized. I like knowing what I am preparing for dinner. I like knowing what workout I am doing that day… rather than walking aimlessly around the gym or putting off my workout because I don’t feel like doing anything. Having a plan is a good thing.
