Menu / Training Plan / New RECIPE!!

Wow, "Week 3" huh?  Time goes by quickly doesn't it?  Well after typing that (week 3), I realized something... while I do want to remember when I started this journey, I'm not sure if I should count the weeks.  I mean, this journey is on-going and by counting the weeks, it sounds like there's an upcoming ending.  Of course there's a goal, but I've got to plan this for living it, right?  So why count weeks?  

Anyway, I think after week 4 I will stop counting.  I'm counting week 4 simply to get 4 weeks of meal planning in so I can start over.  I still may substitute new recipes or old faves every now and again, but for the next several months, these will be my "go to" plans.  

As for training, it will be evolving based on where I'm at physically each week.  My goal is to be stronger of course, but I don't want to push too hard before I'm ready.  As long as I stick to the meals I'm planning, exercise daily, and continue to drop weight then I'm doing something right.  So, here are my plans for this week:
