28 Days of Pilates: Day #3 + meal ideas

Happy Monday!

I hope you’re ready to take on a new week.

I know you’ll be busy so take a little time to strategize how you’ll fit your workouts in each day. Just a little bit of thought and planning can make your week much less-stressful and much more successful.

meal planning

Most of you know by now that I’m an avid meal planner and I encourage my clients to do the same. It’s the best way to ensure that you’ll eat well throughout the week.


In case you’re looking for a bit of inspiration here’s what I’ll be cooking this week:

Monday: Salmon with Sriracha and Lime + brown rice + broccoli

Tuesday: Mexican Quinoa & Black Bean Bowls

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Herb Balsamic Pork Roast + roasted potatoes + brussel sprouts

Thursday: Blackened Chicken with Cilantro Lime Quinoa + broccoli

Friday: out 🙂

You can also browse my boards on Pinterest for more ideas throughout the week.


And now…on to your workout!

Today, we’re working on toning and tightening our derrieres. Enjoy!

  1. Those moves are all glute killers! Haha. Loved the core work too that’s involved.

    Happy Monday and thank you for a third fabulous Day of Pilates challenge!

  2. What a great workout, thank you! Also, I was planning salmon tonight for dinner but didn’t know what to do with it–definitely going to do the sriracha and lime seasoning 🙂

  3. Done! I have a hard to time getting going in the mornings – at home with my little one – so that was a good motivator! Thank you!!

  5. These bite size sessions are so great! I had surgery on my back a few months ago and started Pilates classes as part of my rehab. The classes are a huge help and I love them, but your program is giving me the confidence to practice on my own at home. Totally hooked! Thank you x

  6. Yay! Day 3 is in the books! LOL I am sooo weak anymore. Whew! I’m excited to see the changes in my body over this month. Thank you again 🙂 And thank you too for sharing your meal planning. I struggle with that and we end up having the same ho hum meals every week.

  7. Day 3 done! This is great for beginners! Just enough for me to feel the burn without losing motivation to keep going! Feeling excited!

  8. It’s after 10 pm but I got Day 3 of the challenge in and felt every second of it! That was a powerful, short workout!

  9. I got a little off schedule yesterday and just did the Day 3 workout. I just love these 5 minutes videos! Thank you so much for posting these, Robin!

  10. I pinned the blackened chicken/lime quinoa recipe back when I was doing this, and I just made it tonight. It was excellent. Love healthy meal ideas!
