Say it, Do it! {Recipes for the Week}

2011 October 2
by Jess

{If you’re new to SIDI here’s some info: At the beginning of each week on FCITC “Say it, Do it” is a chance for us to commit to our workouts for the week by saying them out loud here and keeping each other accountable.}

I’m not sure if it’s the return of the fall like weather or the fact that I’m no longer using every waking moment to obsess about that marathon, but I’ve had this sudden urge to spend lots of time in my kitchen. I’m finally making some of the recipes I have bookmarked via Springpad.

Days like the one in the photo below are just around the corner. I can’t wait!


Here are the recipes I’ve made this weekend:

These are a few of the recipes I’m making for the week:

For workouts this week, I’ve been cleared to go back to my beloved Physique 57 to see how my body reacts. I also feel like I’m making some slow progress on my road to recovery. I also discovered that the elliptical and I are not friends after all. That being said I only ended up doing one of my elliptical workouts from last week.

Here are the workouts I’m committing to this week:

  • Monday – Physique 57 & Spin
  • Tuesday – Short run + walk
  • Wednesday – Short run & core work
  • Thursday – off
  • Friday – hopefully P57 (if everything goes well on Monday)
  • Saturday – 3 mile run (again assuming everything goes well with my other runs)
  • ***EDITED: Sunday – Brick workout with Lululemon & Flywheel (again assuming nothing crazy happens with my injuries between now & then)  I made a scheduling error, the BRICK workout with Aleah from Flywheel & Abby from Lululemon isn’t until October 15th. If you are interested you can sign-up here.

So tell me, what workouts are you committed to this week and have you made any great recipes recently? I’d love to try them!

    I am embarrassed to ask this, but are you a vegan? I should probably know this….
    I like all the vegan recipes, as I get requests for them all the time at work. Thanks!! The cheese bars sound delicious.

    My week includes some elliptical, yoga, lifting, and twice running outdoors (I only ran once this week, my goal is twice!).

      Don’t be embarrassed! How could you possibly keep up with every blog you read. No, I am not technically a vegan, but I do lean towards that style of eating.

    I’ve been making this chili a lot lately – it’s so good and has a pretty short ingredient list which is nice for my wallet. I cut the recipe in half though since I live alone…or I’d be eating it at every meal for two weeks.

    Monday: run to and across BK Bridge and back home
    Tuesday: early morning yoga class
    Wednesday: yoga class after work
    Thursday: run
    Friday: rest (happy hour!)
    Saturday: yoga class
    Sunday: yoga class

    Tuesday: Core Fusion / run 4.5
    Wednesday: Core Fusion Cardio
    Thursday: Vinyasa / run 4.5
    Friday: Core Fusion / run 4.5

        I’m a little off also. I moved yesterday’s run to today & took yesterday off in an effort to fight a sore throat.

        Nice job on taking a day off!

    I’m making the Tone It Up Three Bean Salad tomorrow to eat throughout the week. It’s very easy and pretty tasty – I made it a few weeks ago.

    I need more recipe ideas – I frequently eat at 5pm and I’m starting a new job in a few weeks where I’ll be in the office until 5:30 so I’ll need more things I can make ahead on Sundays. I might try the pumpkin soup!

    This week’s workouts:
    M – 3 mile run
    Tu – yoga (and hopefully spin – I’m waitlisted for a class I’d really like to attend)
    W – 5 mile run
    Th – 3 mile run
    F – rest
    Sa – 10 mile run
    Su – rest

    I really hope you are on the route to recovery soon Jess! Me, I am the same each week in terms of cardio & weights & stretching & core/abs but it is just each days is different in terms of what I do & I change the exercises or weights or order each week too.

  12. October 3, 2011

    tues- tennis- yep not great for hamstring but scheduled
    wed-run 4
    thurs trying for figure 4

    I love planning out my meals each week almost as much as I love planning my workouts.
    Tonight I am going to make a veg-heavy version of this, which will provide leftovers for lunches: Tomorrow night I am making this: I cram them full of salsa and avocado and they are the bomb. Wednesday is date night and Thursday night Darren makes his special tomato sauce/pasta dinner. And Friday I am being drug kicking and screaming against my will (not really) to the lake house AGAIN so I’ll probably eat a bunch of crap all weekend AGAIN and feel bloated and gross on Monday AGAIN. Because I never learn.

    So for workouts this week, this is what I have:
    Monday – Core Fusion, 3 miles
    Tuesday – Core Fusion Yoga
    Wednesday – Speedwork
    Thursday – Core Fusion Yoga, 3 miles
    Friday – 7 miles
    Saturday – My old favorite class in the world, Body Attack, with my old Body Attack friend who I haven’t seen in months. I’m super excited!
    Sunday – Rest

      Thanks for the links! The thai peanut noodles look a lot better than the pad thai I just made! I bet if you decide now not to eat at ton of crap and feel like crap that you won’t do it this weekend. Just sayin’ =)

        Well, we just decided not to go anywhere this weekend…which doesn’t necessarily mean I won’t still eat a lot of crap but I am definitely going to try.
        Anyways that means I have to change it up.
        Friday will now be a rest day.
        Saturday 6-7 mile run followed up Flywheel
        Sunday – Core Fusion Cardio

            This will only be my second time! But I loved the first class – wish it wouldn’t have taken me so long to get to a second one.
