Trying to get on a good weekly schedule with your health and fitness? Let me show you my typical weekly food and exercise schedule, what snacks I eat, when I eat throughout the day, and what I do for my workouts.
I’m going to show you my weekly food and exercise schedule
I’ve had a lot of questions lately about my exercise schedule and also what I typically eat in a day. So today I’m breaking it all down for you in a very simple week-long chart!
This chart is more of an example chart, not a fully specific week. And besides my dinner menu, every week looks about the exact same.
Some healthy, filling snacks options
I’m a creature of habit, so I find a good snack and stick to it almost daily for a few months. The snacks below are the ones I have been eating lately, but I have a whole post HERE about SOME GREAT HEALTHY SNACKS.
My current snack choices:
- Rice cakes with almond butter and dried berries. I buy THIS DRIED BERRIES MIX from Walmart and put it on top of ALMOND BUTTER and a LIGHTLY SALTED RICE CAKE.
- Pink lady apples and almond butter. PINK LADY APPLES are my very favorite kind of apple. They’re available pretty much year round, and have a very crisp, sweet flavor. I eat them by themselves, or dip them in ALMOND BUTTER if I’m feeling a little more hungry at snack time.
- Popcorn and dried berries. SKINNY POP is one of my go-to snacks. I love it because you can have 3-4 cups for under 150 calories! I would really love to eat them with chocolate chips, but DRIED BERRIES AND CRAISINS are pretty good too.
Some resources for strength training at home and running
I’ve written a ton of posts on the BBG program I’ve been using for 2 1/2 years, and also some posts about running.

Let’s talk about intermittent fasting for a quick second.
I’ve been intermittent fasting for the last six or eight months, and I’m planning to do a dedicated blog post about it.
But basically, with intermittent fasting, you set hours during the day when you eat and you don’t eat. My eating hours are 11:00am – 7:00pm.
I eat a large salad with lots of veggies and protein at 11:00, then eat a snack when my kids get home from school around 3:30, and then eat a normal portion of dinner.
Some notes about my eating habits:
- I don’t eat before I exercise, ever. I only take half of a pre-workout packet.
- I drink about 70-80 oz. of water everyday
- I eat the same thing my family eats for dinner
- I don’t count calories
- I don’t cut out any major food groups – I eat carbs, dairy, red meat, etc.
- I eat dessert twice a week only, usually on Saturday and Sunday.
- I do a full 2-meal fast every Sunday. My church asks members to do a 2-meal fast once per month, but Philip and I started doing it every week about 2 years ago and it’s both a spiritual boost and physical reboot every week. (Here’s an article about our church’s religious monthly fast)
