Motivation Manu Monday

Its Motivation Menu Monday, and I am DESPERATE for your motivation.  I was thrilled to jump on the scale last week and be down another 1.6lbs, bringing my total weight loss to 12.8 lbs in just  5 weeks...

...then we went to visit grandparents.....


...and grandparents spoil you with delicious southern homecookin'...


...and that southern home-cookin' includes PIE!  ....


....and that PIE added some of those lost pounds back on!!!!!!


So today I'm blazing the trail back to get those extra 3.4 lbs back off!  This of course is a two-part adventure, so here is:

Part 1:  WORKOUTS!

Monday:  Cycling - approx. 14mi loop
Tuesday:  Cycling - approx. 12mi trail
Wednesday:  20 min. treadmill/weight lifting
Thursday:  Cycling - approx. 12 mi trail
Friday:  Rest
Saturday:  Group cycling (usually 20-30 mi.)
Sunday:  Rest


Part 2:  THE MENU!

Monday: Lemon pepper grilled chicken with roasted veggies
Tuesday: Salmon Croquettes with roasted broccoli and sliced new potatoes  (This will thrill my husband...one of his personal favorites!!  You can find the recipe I use here)

Wednesday:  Roasted Chicken and basalmic peppers with spinach salad & green beans  (this is one of my favorite Cooking Light recipes!  I've posted about it several times & you can find the recipe here.)


Thursday:  Pork ribs with squash/zucchini medley & roasted potatoes
Friday: Veggie pizza night

BUT...if you want to know what is really motivating me this week, take a look at this good-looking man!  My husband started his weight-loss journey back in January and is training to do his first sprint-tri in September.  He is down almost 50 lbs!!!!!  I cannot sing his praises enough!!!



Here is a before and after!


He is definitely motivation for me!  I can't wait to say that I've lost 50 lbs too!!!!!  That's only 39.5 more to go!

I am always impressed by how well you plan things out. That is one area (of many) that I would like to get better at. Wow to your husband :) It is great that you both value a healthy lifestyle. I have a feeling that you are going to knock it out of the park this week::)
