What I Ate Wednesday #99

First and foremost, I want to thank you all for your virtual hugs, messages, and sweet comments left on yesterday’s post. Documenting our journey to start a family has been really therapeutic for me, and hearing that I have brought up and discussed things on the minds of so many only gives me more reasons to keep it up. I truly appreciate your love and continuous support so much!

On a lighter note, it’s Wednesday, so let’s get into covering an entire day of unfiltered eats. Below you will see everything I ate yesterday that exemplifies a typical Tuesday these days.

(Have no idea what WIAW is all about? This post breaks it down!)

 

What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday

Breakfast came together quicker than ever, thanks to preparing a fresh batch of overnight oats the night before.

Overnight oats are a great way to enjoy oatmeal ready and waiting for you when you wake up. I was first introduced to them years ago by following Julie‘s blog, and she did a wonderful job explaining exactly how to make them.

It’s no surprise that the oats kept me full until the late-morning. They tend to do that! When I eventually wanted a snack, I wandered over to the pantry and found a bag of pistachios I completely forgot about buying from months before. Score, because those roasted and salted nuts are money.

Paired with a few slices of mango, I had myself a tasty, satisfying little snack!

Lunch didn’t come too much later yesterday. I was ready to dig into the leftover crock pot honey garlic chicken I made a couple of nights before, and I quickly created a salad similar to one I made Monday night!

Spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers, sliced hard boiled eggs, feta cheese, and shredded honey garlic chicken topped in ground pepper and Greek dressing

And then I got into one of my favorite snacks a few hours later… yum!

My normal evening 1-on-1 client ended up having to reschedule, so I spent the afternoon getting some extra things done around the house and writing my afternoon blog post.

Thanks to summer travels, my night class load lightened up too, and I only had one small group training class on my schedule. I had Scott meet me back at the gym afterwards around 7 p.m., and I put together a strength training circuit for us to complete.

It was a good one (I will be sharing with you later this afternoon), and we finished our workout with a 4-minute jump rope tabata.

Whew!

Scott has been on an extreme fruit kick lately (asking for fresh fruit or smoothies for dinner), so I knew I was on my own for something warm. I was grateful to find leftover green beans and corn on the cobb in the refrigerator, and paired it with a quinoa burger and side of tomato slices to round out the meal.

It was close to 9 p.m. by the time I cleaned up dinner and settled in for the night. I spent the majority of it on my laptop while we relaxed with an episode of America’s Got Talent.

I also enjoyed this dessert for the third night in a row!

Man that stuff is good!

All right, friends. I’ve got some business to take care of before heading out to work this afternoon, but I plan to check back in later with that strength training circuit.

Happy Hump Day!

Please note: What I Ate Wednesday features an entire day of my unfiltered eats. In no way do I change what I eat just for the sake of documenting it. While I try to be mindful with portions, I don’t count calories. I do, however, take into account how much activity I am going to be doing that day, and I plan my meals and snacks accordingly.

 

Questions of the Morning

• What is one (healthy-ish) snack you love but haven’t had in a while?

• What is your favorite go-to crock pot recipe right now?

 

See ya in a bit!

Good morning and afternoon! It’s been an interesting day over here. I apologize to any of you who were trying to access the site earlier.

Hello from the sky! My morning started extra early with a 5:30 a.m. flight to LAX and a short layover in Chicago. I can honestly say this was the earliest I’ve ever had to function and drive to the airport, but hey, I got my flight at a steal… so there’s that. Since today is Hump…
