No Excuses!

Happy New Year, people. So, I’ve come pretty far in my weight loss journey. But, like many, I fell off the wagon HARD during Christmas. Partly from being busy, partly from having a routine change and partly because there were treats everywhere. Whatever. I screwed up but now I am ready to go full force. I have made a low-carb meal plan for week one and a workout routine. I am REALLY excited about joining Daily Burn. It’s free for 30 days and then just $12.95 per month after. (This is what comes from binging on America’s Next Top Model on Hulu for dayyysss). I am going to use it through my Xbox but you can use it on ANY device. It’s 24/7 access to thousands of different types of workouts. New ones post every days at 9am. In addition, I have constructed some strength workouts to do each day as well from some challenge on Pinterest.

Without further ado….here is my meal plan. If you want the recipes, let me know.

Sunday Breakfast: Crustless Quiche with Tomato, green chiles, red onions, green onions and Cheese

Sunday Lunch: Green salad

Sunday Dinner: Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Bacon, Spinach & Goat Cheese with a Side of Broccoli


Monday Breakfast: Quiche leftover

Mon Lunch: Speg squash leftover

Mon Dinner: Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers with  a side of Black Beans


Tuesday Breakfast: leftover quiche

Tues Lunch: Sloppy Joe leftovers

Tues Dinner: One Pan Balsamic Chicken & Veggies


Wednesday Breakfast: Eggs and turkey sausage with salsa

Wed Lunch: Leftovers

Wed Dinner: Buffalo Shrimp Lettuce Wraps


Thursday Breakfast: Black beans, eggs, and salsa

Thu Lunch: Tuna packet with salad

Thu Dinner: Turkey sausage, sweet potato, yellow squash and zucchini skillet with  a side salad


Friday Breakfast: Turkey Bacon and scrambled eggs

Fri Lunch: Leftovers

Saturday Breakfast: Quiche with bacon, feta and spinach

Sat Lunch: Leftovers

Ok. So that’s the food plan. Now for the workouts!!! If there is a term you don’t understand please google image it. That’s what I had to do — haha!


  • Daily Burn Cardio
  • Arm Challenge – Each exercise is 8 reps with a 5lb weight


  • Upright Row
  • Overhead Shoulder Press
  • Lateral Raises
  • Bent Over Reverse Fly
  • Overhead Triceps Press
  • Bicep Curls


  • Core Challenge-  Each exercise is 8 reps
  • 6 crunches

  1. Each leg, 8 reps, 1x
  • Side Leg Lift

I will rotate that plan out and increase reps after two times. For example:  Sunday (8) Tues (8) Thu (10) and Sat (10) will be Cardio, Core and Arms. Mon (8), Wed(8), Fri (10) and Sun (10) will be Cardio & Legs. One of those days will be a cardio rest day but that will depend on a variety of factors. Feel free to start with higher reps or weights if you’d like. Here we go, y’all. Here is to a HAPPY & HEALTHY New Year!
