Sunday Set Up

I’m shamelessly stealing co-opting this idea from Eat, Run, Repeat.

Here’s her list of Sunday preparations to get ready for the upcoming week, and what I plan to do:

  1. Meal Plan – Since I’m in a hotel, I have to wing this a bit. I’m eating is what’s easy to keep in a tiny hotel room fridge. And I may have other snacks here and there or a meal out occasionally, as long as I’m not eating out I’ll swell and blow up from eating all the sodium in restaurant meals.
    • After workout: Pure Protein shake – the 16-day supply tub is crazy convenient for travel.
    • Breakfast: eggs and cottage cheese at the breakfast buffet
    • Lunch: PB&J and veggies
    • Afternoon snack: protein or nutrition bar (Target had a ton of these on sale so I brought several boxes with me)
    • Dinner: Soup and cheese and crackers
    • Bedtime snack: Shakeology
  2. Workout Plan – I’m really, really trying to get back into running, and I’ve abandoned weightlifting for now since I hurt my shoulder
    • Monday, Wednesday, Friday: P90X3 Pilates (love that workout)
    • Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday: running. I ran 6ish miles today on Paseo de la Reforma and really enjoyed it, so I’ll do it again next week.
    • Every Day: I am also trying to walk at least 15,000 step every day with my FitBit. This should be easy; Mexico City is an extremely walkable city and my office and hotel are in a great location for walking to the Zocalo or the Independence Monument after work. Or both. As long as I get those steps in there.
  3. Grocery shopping – I went to Costco last weekend and got what I needed for ~2 weeks so I’m covered for a while. I’ll probably go back to Costco next weekend and get veggies for one week only, since I don’t really know when the work will be done and I’ll return home.
  4. Chop/Prep – I do this at night. If I chop my veggies all at once, they get slimy and go bad. I make my PB&J at night, too.
  5. Have a great week! This should be pretty easy.

And just so there’s a photo in this post, here’s a shot of the Metropolitan Cathedral that I took yesterday in the afternoon sunshine.

How was your weekend? Do you do anything to prepare for the upcoming week?




  1. I never understood the people that could chop up stuff for salads on Sunday for the entire week. My veggies never last more than from morning to lunch chopped up. Or at least to my standards. I dont like them wilted and stuff you know?!

      Yeah, i don’t know either. It seems convenient but I’d probably waste them by throwing them out cuz they’re off.

I'd love to hear from you
