Meal Plan

Getting Back on Track Healthy Eating & Exercise

Now the new year is underway, I really should re-evaluate my eating habits. I need to get back on track with healthy eating and exercising. I let myself go from Christmas Eve until New Year’s Eve, who can really sustain a strict diet over the festive period when there are so many scrumptious treats on offer. I have been quite good and not completely pigged out, I’ve had a few treats a day – not because I wanted them particularly, more so because they have been in the house.

I worked out up until Christmas Eve and on Boxing Day but I’ve been really poorly during that time and still have a silly cold. I will be writing a separate blog post on my work out routine and what works for me if you are interested. I’m hoping to get right back on track this week and have set out my schedule for this.

Anyway, on with the meal plan…

 

MONDAY: CHILLI GNOCCHI WITH CHICKEN – The Body Coach

TUESDAY: POTATO SALAD WITH BUTTERFLY CHICKEN – The Body Coach

WEDNESDAY: SWEET POTATO WITH CHIPOTLE BUTTER CHICKEN – The Body Coach

THURSDAY: LUNCH BOX CHICKEN – The Body Coach

FRIDAY: JACKET POTATO WITH TUNA & SALAD – Easy Dinner as I’m flying solo

SATURDAY: LASAGNE & VEG – The Body Coach

SUNDAY: LASAGNE & SALAD – The Body Coach

 

Here is my exercise plan for the week, it is not a rigid plan and as always life will probably get in the way and it will all go out of the window but never mind.

 

MONDAY: JILLIAN MICHAELS 30 DAY SHRED, LEVEL 3

TUESDAY: KAYLA ITSINES BIKINI BODY GUIDE, WEEK 6, LEGS & CARDIO

THURSDAY: SHAUN T, T25

FRIDAY: KAYLA ITSINES, BIKINI BODY GUIDE, WEEK 6, ARMS & ABS

 

I think that will do nicely to ease me into the new year, I am also doing dry January up until 26th as that is my birthday and I definitely need to drown my sorrows this year.

  1. Good luck sticking to plan 🙂 I had the whole of December off 😩 Ouch. Going to ease in with a healthy meal plan and a bit of walking this week.

  2. Following recipes from The Body Coach and exercising will ensure that you meet your goals. Remember to have a cheat meal each week to treat yourself for all the hard work. Thanks for joining #TheGoldenBurpee this week, hopefully see you again next week. Spread the word.

  3. good luck. I have all his books and I have to admit, his portion sizes are fantastic for the average gym bro like myself, so I can guarantee you’ll get everything you need from them too.

    Good luck! all the best!

    1. I have really noticed a difference in the way I cook since getting these books back in February, I can’t wait to get the new book. The food is so tasty I almost feel like I’m cheating.

  4. Love this – I’m just starting out when it comes to fitness but have bought the first Lean in 15 book and am hoping to kick start next week with a meal plan! #TheGoldenBurpee

    1. Oh fab, you will love the recipes. I found it a bit overwhelming at first as there were so many herbs and spices I had not heard of but once you have the staple ingredients you are good to go.

      Good luck!

  5. I think having a plan like this helps so much, the recipes look really tasty-that’s a lot of chicken…protein all the way. December I let the exercise and healthy eating go and put on weight and feel pretty ughh now I just find it so hard to pick it back up in January. My brother bought me the Insanity workout for Christmas…generally looks terrifying! x

    1. I agree it is really hard to be motivated during January and generally during the dark months, I do long for spring time as the sun always makes me feel better. I’ve had a week of eating and drinking wine for my birthday but I’m so ready to get back on track. The insanity workouts are super hardcore, let me know if you would recommend them. Good luck with your exercise plan. xx
