Week in Review: April 29-May 5

Oh my gosh, y’all….These past couple of weeks have been crazy and amazing! Sadly, I missed posting last week, but I was super focused on getting ready for my store launch for my jewelry (It went great and I can’t wait to see where this goes from here)! But I’m back this week and I have a DELICIOUS meal prep to share. Plus some exciting upcoming stuff for any of you readers who are local 🙂

Last Week

bike-ride-high-trestle-trailOk, since I missed the post last week, here is a super-quick overview. Workouts were better than the previous couple of weeks. I even went on a group bike ride with my Women on Adventures group!! It was so much fun! I got to see some friends and make some new ones. Plus, I may have snagged Draz’s new fat bike for the ride….I’m kind of in love with it and I really want one for myself!

Have you ridden one before? What did you think?

Last week’s meal prep included – More Cheesy Chicken Broccoli and Rice, Shredded Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese (x2 to freeze one, eat one), Cinnamon Bread, Breakfast Burritos, One Pot Cheesy Taco Skillet (all of this was frozen as burritos), and Chickpea and Potato Curry 

It was a bigger meal prep this week as I get geared up for market season starting – which was this weekend! Having extra food prepped is the way that I’m able to keep up with everything going on right now, so this helped out a lot!

Meal Prep

Now on to this week’s meal prep!! I had a shop launch last weekend (when this was made) and I’m getting ready for another one in a couple of weeks. So this week’s meal prep was focused on FAST and HEALTHY. I made some more Cinnamon Bread to freeze, which is always good!

Along with that, I made:

  • One Pot Tomato and Basil Tortellini Soup – I added in some spinach and kale to this at the end and it was delicious!
  • One Pot Creamy Garlic and Noodles – I made quite a bit of chicken to go with this, since I wanted the pasta to be more of a side to go along with the chicken. I also used unsweetened plain almond milk instead of milk and added in some sauted onion when I cooked the garlic. At the end, I added in some chopped up broccoli. Overall, I was pretty happy with this recipe, though I will add more garlic next time. We like things pretty  garlic-y here haha
  • Crockpot Sausage and Peppers – As always, I made this with Italian Turkey Sausage. Quick to put together and so tasty!

Workouts

I’m still not getting in quite as many workouts in as I would like, but I did make it 4 times this week! Pretty much all of it was practicing and teaching Pound, but that is a GREAT workout! Along with Pound, I found out that loading/setting-up and tearing down my new jewelry displays for market is quite the workout all on it’s own haha!

And this is where the exciting news for the locals comes in!! I will be doing some Pound events in Des Moines starting in July! It’s super exciting and is going to be so fun, so keep an eye out for more details. I will be releasing more info soon!

Struggles

As always, I had to fight my stress eating impulses a lot this week. Most of the time, I did pretty well at keeping myself from buying junk, but there were was one day after work that included too many donuts! It’s always a struggle, especially when you work at a store that sells food.

So that is me this week! I hope you are enjoying the new post format and getting to see a bit more of what I’m up to on a week-to-week basis!
