MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE from Rhode Island!! We will be celebrating Xmas Eve in RI and then heading back to Connecticut late tonight so Ava can open presents at home in the morning.
Today I am linking up with Jenn for quick WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) post.
I am sharing my food journal from Monday to give you a different look at my food, since my schedule is different on Mondays.
I wake up bright and early on Mondays and I typically try to have my food and snacks ready to go, so that I don’t have to rush around like a mad woman.
My breakfast was 1 egg, 2 egg whites scrambled with spinach & mushrooms.. with some potatoes in olive oil plus extra salt. I always do extra salt because I have 2 morning classes that I teach. I also drank a Pumpkin Coffee
After Group Power I immediately refuel with a Coffee Protein Shake. I also have a banana and 2 big old spoons of peanut butter.
My next class is my senior class from 1030-1130am. They were so sweet and bought be a Rose & a bottle of Champagne for the holidays!
Believe it or not I sweat a good amount in my senior class and I leave class hungry again. Lunch is leftovers.. we were trying to get rid of all the food in our fridge before we headed to Rhode Island! We don’t waste food in our house. My meal was simple and plain… Rotisserie Chicken, Green beans, & Sweet Potatoes with butter.
I also ate a string cheese and some baby carrots (i didn’t take pictures because I was too hungry)
After running some errands I realized I was hungry again. I ate a quick greek yogurt parfait with granola and blueberries.. Man do I love blueberries. I wish they didn’t cost a fortune for a small container that I could eat in 3 seconds.
I also ate a delicious Sugar Cookie to balance out all my healthy eating.
Thanks to my mom, I didn’t have to cook dinner! She made some Turkey Chili that we ate with some tortilla chips. It is the Doc’s Chili recipe from the BIggest Loser. If you haven’t tried it you definitely should, we love it. I turned my family onto this chili recipe when I was living at home and it has become a staple dinner recipe in our family!
My night finished off wrapping some Christmas Gifts with Marc.
What are your plans for Christmas?!
Will you work out?
