Move Nourish Believe Challenge Week 1 Recap + Meal Planning

Well that’s a nice long title, huh?

Week one of the Move Nourish Believe Challenge is in the books. How did it go? I’ve been having fun with it.

Day 1: Show your favorite way to sweat – Running of course!

Day 2: Try a new workout – After a 3 mile run on the treadmill, I did Lorna Jane’s “Don’t Skip It” Workout. Check it out – it’s fun!


Day 3: Plank for 5 minutes – Planks have become part of my post workout cool down and evening wind down routine. I do a variation of forearm plank, side plank, side plank with leg lift and high plank with twist aiming for at least 5 minutes each time.

Day 4: Workout with a buddy. My second workout of the day consisted of pulling my buddies (aka my kids) up the hill after sledding down, over and over and over again. That’s one serious leg burner!

Day 5: My Five Fitness Essentials – Yoga mat, running shoes, hair tie, Garmin 405 and a positive attitude. A really good sports bra like this one from Lorna Jane helps a lot too!

  1. Like you, I plan the week’s meals in advance. It makes life so much easier! On tap for this week:
    -turkey breast with sweet potatos;
    -burgers (the men eat beef, I eat turkey);
    -swiss enchiladas –;
    -sweet and sour chicken–
    I work one night, so the men are on their own!

  3. I don’t meal plan, but the fridge is stocked. Definitely salmon one night with lentils & broccoli. Besides that, depends what I feel like. I admire you for meal planning… have never been able to do it.

  4. You’re just awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great job on the challenge and all your fitness this week! I kinda wish my back sweat more…I rarely sweat but get really, really red in the face!

    Great meal plan…one of mine is a new one (to me) I discovered via Paleo-OMG (even though I’m not paleo) called Spaghetti Pizza Pie or something – it’s awesome if you google it! Spaghetti squash, meat of choice, minimal ingredients and I add cheese on top – bake it and it lasts me all week, my husband and I most the week together.

    Have a great week!
