What I Ate Wednesday #102

Hello, and Happy Hump Day!

Let’s celebrate by diving right into another edition of What I Ate Wednesday.

I’m so happy to hear that a lot of you like reading these. I hope you enjoy the absorbent amount of food pictures, and if not, you can check back in later this afternoon.

(Still wondering what the heck WIAW is all about? This post explains it all.)

This edition covers my whereabouts yesterday, which includes a trip to Qdoba for lunch and leftovers for dinner. No two WIAWs are ever the same, that’s for sure!


What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday



Breakfast happened as soon as I could get downstairs, turn on the coffee maker (I always get it ready to brew the night before… obsessed much?) and to the refrigerator. Our house is currently bare of groceries, so I grabbed the last of our yogurt cups and topped it with anything that made sense!

That did the trick for a bit, but I went back to the fridge to look for a snack a few hours later.

I spent the entire morning and early afternoon on the computer followed by a little bit of time with Scott before we had to leave to drop him off at the airport. The lucky duck is currently working on a freelance consulting job in Paris! I’m not jealous or anything. *lies*

We live about an hour from the airport, so we left with plenty of time to allow for traffic and for me to get there and back before my 5:00 client at the gym.

Oh, and we both forgot to eat lunch, so a quick stop into Qdoba was an obvious answer. I ordered a salad and had plenty leftover to enjoy later.

I went straight to the gym after the drop off and was already digging into my snacks I brought for the night. What can I say… I’m a snacker.

I arrived early enough to create my workouts for the rest of the week, and I had a great client session followed by a small group circuit class. Tuesday nights have been slow this summer, so I only taught one class before getting around to my own workout.

I didn’t feel like putting another workout together, so I took a look at the white board and went for the Rockit Class I taught Monday night.

Here’s a quick glance at the exercises:



medicine ball (overhead) slams


stability ball knee tucks

air squats


dumbbell dead lifts

stability ball bent leg bridges

TRX rows

kettlebell swings

jump ropes


The forty reps were the hardest for me, but it was a good one! I finished in just around forty minutes and kind of sat here for a while afterwards.

While I’m not really tracking calories and whatnot (especially over the last year or so), I would be interested to see how many calories I burn on these types of workouts. If I had to guess, I would say somewhere in the 300 – 400 range. If I ever remember to track a few, I’ll let you know!

I headed home soon after and dug into the rest of my leftovers from lunch. I also had a few servings of blue corn chips and salsa to dip into it. The picture turned out horrendous, so I’m just going to move onto dessert…

I was craving chocolate and this was the best I could do. As it turns out, the combination was fantastic. It will be repeated without a doubt!



And there you have another full day of eats for WIAW. As you have probably picked up on, no two weeks are exactly the same, so I like putting this recap of meals together every now and then.

I’m planning to pop back in later this afternoon, so I’ll see ya back here in just a bit.

Have a great Wednesday!


Questions of the Morning

• What is a healthy snack you turn to when craving something sweet at night?

• What do you usually order from a place like Qdoba or Chipotle?


You can always find my latest What I Ate Wednesday posts by exploring the “WIAW” category on the right hand sidebar.

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.

Disclaimer: I am not a registered dietitian. Although I am a certified personal trainer, I am not necessarily your personal trainer. The workouts I post are what work best for me and might not be the right type of exercises for you. If you decide to give these workouts a try, please listen to your body and rest or modify as you see fit. I always recommend consulting a doctor or health professional before making changes to your diet or fitness routine.

What I Ate Wednesday #101

All right. I admit that I have been off of my blogging game lately. I feel like I barely get a post up every weekday, let alone my normal schedule of two. I’ve tried to stay on top of things, but I just can’t seem to catch up around here. Truth is, I’ve been trying…

Well, well, well… here we are. I can’t believe today’s post marks the 100th What I Ate Wednesday! I started this series over two years ago (!!!) on a mostly-weekly occurrence, thanks to a nudge from the original creator, Jenn. From what I gather, she has taken a hiatus from hosting the link-up, but there…

First and foremost, I want to thank you all for your virtual hugs, messages, and sweet comments left on yesterday’s post.
