Hello, and Happy Hump Day!
It’s Wednesday, and on Wednesdays, we usually talk about food. Let’s get right to it!
What I Ate
I was feeling an old go-to for breakfast, which proved to be an excellent choice.
I worked on the computer through the morning until I had to get ready for work at the gym at Noon. I didn’t make time to make lunch, so I grabbed a vitaminwater and snacks to hold me over for the next couple of hours.
I had a few appointments at the gym, and then I drove right back home at 2 p.m. I met Scott there, and we went on a secret adventure I’ll share more about later… if it goes anywhere. 😉
Hungry on the verge of hangry, I was thankful to dive into a bag of chicken jerky with a side of fruit & nut bar on the way.
By 3:30 p.m., Scott and I were on our way back home, and I casually mentioned how great a stop at Chipotle for “linner” would be. Okay, I more than casually mentioned. I begged, and he was easily convinced.

I changed back into my trainer clothes as soon as we arrived home, then I went straight back to the gym. I put together a couple of strength workouts before my next client appointment, and gave one a try during my break in night classes.
I’ll be sure to share one with dumbbells very soon!
I finished my day and arrived back home around 9 p.m. I was pretty tired, but more importantly… hungry! I usually pack a post-workout snack, but I totally dropped the ball this time. I probably would have eaten my hand if I didn’t need it. #fail
I went straight towards the refrigerator as soon as I got home, and I put together a delicious tabbouleh wrap with lots of peppers!

I sided it with a large serving of cottage cheese (unpictured) and finished my time downstairs with the last of the Dark Chocolate Bark that was staring at me.
Gosh that stuff is good!
I made my way upstairs shortly after, then called it a night. I’ve been loving my sleep this week!

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.
Question of the Morning
• What is one snack you just can’t stop eating lately?
For me, it’s jerky! I’m not a big fan of beef jerky, but I’ve found a new (and addictive) love for turkey and chicken jerky. I could probably go through three bags of it a week if I let myself. I realize this is a problem, so I’m working on it!
