Meal Planning & Tornadoes

Happy Monday!

The whole world looks like a rainstorm today & we have tornado warnings here in West Palm (yes - we're back for another quick visit with family!). Chloe is teething once again and this has brought a bit of turmoil to our nice little sleeping routine. So I'm now just waiting for her to wake up and then we're going to spend the day girl style at the mall!
I had to forego my morning run today and instead tried out a yoga DVD that I picked up at Walmart - Jillain Michaels Yoga Meltdown.
I actually loved this for a few reasons - it's quick (there are two 30 min workouts), dirt cheap and it's more of a hybrid style yoga that mixes lots of aerobic activity in between the poses so that you're getting your heart rate up at the same time.

I just finished planning out our meals for the week and looking forward to hitting up Whole Foods this afternoon. Being that I'm here with my in laws - I have to try to make dinners that everyone will like but still eat clean. Hoping this menu till hit the spot!

T Black Bean Quesadillas
W Spaghetti & Veg Balls with Salad
Th Spinach & Black Bean Lasagna. Whole Wheat Blueberry Choc Cake for dessert.
F Coconut Chicken, Green Beans & Herbed Potatoes
Sa Chicken & Veg Stir Fry with brown rice
Su Dinner out
I'm also going to do a little baking this week as I've got a boatload of super ripe bananas. So choco banana bread & protein bars it is!
Head on over to Org Junkie if you want to participate in the weekly meal planning!

Hope you ladies had fun at the mall and your little miss's teeth feel better. I feel so bad for them when they teeth, you know that hurts so bad.

You are amazing for being on vacay and still sticking to your healthy ways. And you are cooking for the in-laws too? You are amazing.

thanks for the jillian review..honestly i am scared to death to recommend dvd's to readers ( i dont really ahem, "need" dvd's for yoga...haha!) so i dont buy them and then ppl ask me and i never know what to say. That's good to keep in mind. Sounds like it's a workout too, which most ppl get mad if its too slow moving, totally get that :)
