I cook food on Sunday in bulk quantity, enough to last me lunch and dinner till Wednesday (sometimes Thursday if I had to skip for outside food in between). I separate everyday meals in rubber maid plastic containers and keep it frozen in the refrigerator. When I want to eat it, I heat it in microwave. I have been following this schedule everyday and would like to know if this has any adverse effects on my health(or rather anyone's health in general)?

Prepared food is typically good for 3-4 days in the refrigerator

Frozen is is even longer.

It would be cooled (not frozen) in a normal refrigerator.

Healthy depends on the food. Home prepared food can be healthier than prepared food (especially fast food) that can have a lot of fat and salt.
