My weekend was a perfect mix of adventure and relaxation.
I started Saturday my favorite way (with a workout) and then spent the rest of the day in Detroit! We made quite a few stops at plenty of new places.
We actually started with coffee and dessert (it’s the best part anyway).
Stopped at Punch Bowl Social since it’s been around for a while and I still haven’t been there.
Made our way to Wright & Co. and The Keep
Ended the night at The Sugar House with fancy drinks and dinner at Ottava Via (too hungry to take pictures of the food).
Sunday was the relaxation half of the weekend. I started with a workout but spent the rest of the day prepping for the week ahead. If I have the time, I like to do some meal prep. It helps save time on packing lunches and snacks throughout the week. Scroll to the bottom for a snapshot of my workout – I actually did it at home with minimal equipment.
Some of my Sunday meal prep!
Roasted Root Veggies (Turnips, Parsnips, Carrots, Sweet Potato & Radishes)
Salads for Lunch (Spinach, Kale, Parmesan, Dried Cranberries, Pistachios – will add Chicken and Vinaigrette)
Pan-fried Chicken Tenders (Olive Oil, Red Pepper Flakes, Garlic Powder, S&P)
I also stocked up on stuff for snacks like veggies and hummus, fresh fruit and nuts.
And now for the workout…
I didn’t get to the gym so I came up with something I could do at my apartment. I have a variety of dumbbells & kettlebells at home so I mixed up the weight but you could easily do this with one set of dumbbells.
I’ve shared this workout format before. Clearly, it’s one of my favorites! This was a little more challenging for me since I ran my miles OUTSIDE (for the first time since November). My splits weren’t quite as fast as they would have been inside on a treadmill (with no wind, a flat road and a belt that won’t let you slow down), but I still managed to keep each mile sub-7 minutes and definitely felt a little lung burn…
Repeat 3 times and rest as needed after the run and between rounds. You can tailor the workout to focus on particular muscle groups, try just bodyweight if you don’t have dumbbells, or add in plyometrics if you’re really going for a cardio-killer.
- Run 1 Mile
- 3 Rounds of 3 Exercises (10 Reps each)
