Past week’s food & fitness

How is your weekend going ? I am spending a rainy Sunday at home doing some reading and watching a movie with my girls, who have been on vacation the past 2 weeks. Back to school for them tomorrow, and back to work for me, after a 3 day weekend.

With the rain I had lots of time to cook this weekend, and managed to run, between two rain showers. Here is how last week went :


Fitness :

  • Monday / Tuesday : off
  • Wednesday : 45 minutes of cardio (elliptical / bike / hills on the treadmill) + 20 minutes of upper body weights
  • Thursday : 45 minutes on the treadmill + ab work + lots of stretching
  • Friday : off
  • Saturday : 1 hour 40 minute run / walk outside, between the rain showers
  • Sunday : one hour swimming laps at the pool














As I am going to be using the run / walk / run method for my marathon training, and Jeff Galloway suggests Cross Training the day after the long run, I thought the pool would be perfect on Sunday. I was a bit apprehensive that my muscles would be tired after 14 km , so I thought 30 minutes in the pool would be enough. Well, I had really stretched and foam rolled after the long run, and slept very well, so seeing how great I felt, I ended up doing 60 minutes of laps.


Food :

With a rainy three day weekend here, I had time to cook some yummy meals :


Cauliflower gratin


Salmon, broccoli puree, sweet potato patties, cauliflower with curry


Sweet potato patties from the 21 DSD cookbook


Chicken with white asparagus and potato


Sweet potato patties, avocado, tuna


And had an indulgence :


Dessert from a local bakery (so good)


It was a good week. Did you get your exercise in this week ? Make any good meals ?
