Good morning! I hope the Hump Day has started on a great note for you. I have a lot to get around to on this little ‘ol laptop of mine today, so I’m going to dive right into yesterday’s eats for What I Ate Wednesday.
Have no idea what I’m talking about? Check it out!
What I Ate
Breakfast couldn’t have been easier. I poured a tall cup of coffee and scarfed down a bowl of Fiber One Cranberry Almond protein cereal. It was really good, and I had the same exact breakfast this morning too!
Scott talked me into running some errands with him before lunch that included picking up a new washer and dryer across town. We forgot our dolly at home, so it was a real adventure. At least I got to play (slash fear for my life of slipping) in the snow, right?
I was hungry for lunch right when we returned. Scott left for work and I made a giant monster salad to last as side salads for a couple of days.
Power greens, baby spinach, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, red peppers, chick peas, black olives, and feta cheese.
I scooped out a plateful, then heated and cut up a veggie black bean burger for substance.
It all tasted great with this cilantro dressing!
I went downstairs to work on the computer for a couple of hours and stopped for a coffee and clementine snack mid-afternoon. I didn’t get much sleep the night before, so I was draggggging.
I had a video chat meeting around 3 and then drove up to the gym to put together a handful of workouts.
(I was grateful to find a Special K snack bar in my purse two hours in.)
I returned home around 8:30 p.m. ready to eat my arm. Per usual, Scott requested pasta so I compromised with my version of extreme veggie pasta.
(About half of that glass of wine was happily consumed in the process.)
Scott got home with a trailer holding our new washer and dryer right after 9 p.m. He had impeccable timing and wanted to unload them right after I dished up dinner.
We successfully moved both pieces into our garage, but I’m pretty sure I got a hernia in the process.
I planned on completing a workout in the basement before dinner, but that didn’t happen. Instead, I’m going to give it a go after lunch and hope to share it with you all later this afternoon.
Dinner got heated up as soon as I walked into the door. My plate was considerably full, but I ate every last bite.
Vegetable spaghetti noodles topped in marinara with Italian seasoned turkey sausage, tomatoes, spinach, onions, and crushed red pepper flakes.
It’s impressive/scary how much veggie pasta I can put down y’all.
Just like every other night, I grabbed a tall glass of dark chocolate almond milk before bed and went upstairs shortly after.
If you’re ever curious to see what another complete day of meals and snacks looks like for me, this is just one of the many examples you can find exploring the “WIAW” tag on the right hand sidebar.
