WIAW: Truckin along


Well Hello there! I went MIA yesterday. Monday night Ava went to bed super late and woke up early Tuesday morning and after training a few clients I really had no time to blog. I needed the extra time in the afternoon to get my life organized.

I’m sure all you Mom’s out there can relate. When your kid doesn’t sleep and you lose sleep its hard enough to function let alone find time to get anything else accomplished.

I’m happy to say we are back on track today. I wouldn’t say my eating has been off this week because I still ate healthy but I literally had no time to think about food, I just grabbed anything and ate it!

I am linking up with the WIAW (what I ate Wednesday) Crew to share my Food Journal from Monday!


Monday morning I woke and came downstairs to find Marc in the kitchen making eggs & veggies. It was so nice to have one less thing to do on a Monday morning! I had 2 eggs, mushrooms & spinach and toast.


I headed to the YMCA a little after 7am to teach Group Power. As soon as I finished, I refueled with my Vanilla protein shake and shortly after snacked on a banana and a few energy bites. I picked this up at Bishop’s Orchard this past weekend and I’m a huge fan. They are literally packed with energy (pistachios, apricots, soy protein, sunflower seeds, etc) I’m a big fan because they filled me right up.


Mid morning I taught my senior fitness class, I picked Ava up from daycare and we came home for lunch. I opened the fridge and grabbed my leftover Chicken Francese, veggies & potatoes and started eating. Ava had a few bites with me but preferred milk over food for lunch.


My afternoon flew by.. I did coaching work on the computer and then had a Chocolate Shakeology plus 2 tsp of Peanut butter for snack around 3pm! YUM.

I really don’t know how the time passed but when I realized it was 5 o’clock and I had no dinner plans I had to quickly make something for Ava. I opted for Chicken Cutlet, Steamed Green beans with olive oil & sea salt, and a white sweet potato. Have you every tried them? Wow they are soo good. I wish I bought more. They were little less “sweet” then a regular orange sweet potato and a little more starchy like a white potato. It was a great blend.


My evening didn’t go as plan. Ava didn’t want to sleep. She ran around like a crazy woman and Marc said she’s gonna crash but she didn’t. She wouldn’t go in her crib. She ate a gazillion snacks and about a gallon of milk. I also snacked on some fresh strawberries that we picked from the weekend.


I probably ate more then I should have, oops!

My night finished with an evening stroll with Marc, Ava & Cooper. The purpose of our walk was to get Ava to fall asleep but something was bothering her and it didn’t work! I even put her in my car to see if she’d sleep because usually she falls asleep quickly in the car and that didn’t work either. At around 10pm I shut the lights off in my room and snuggled in bed with her, I combed her hair and hummed some random song that popped in my head. Within 1 minute she was asleep. Phew.

Then she woke up at 5am….. luckily it didn’t really effect my day and we are off to a better start today.

Okay I will stop rambling and let you get on with your day :)

What was something yummy you ate yesterday?

Have you ever had a white sweet potato?

  1. wow I didn’t even know you could get white sweet potatoes- that chicken dish though- It’s calling my name!

    Thanks for linking up, Happy WIAW!

    • Hi Arman!

      I have been searching for the white sweet potatoes for a while. I was so happy when I got the chance to try them! Try your local farmers market or whole foods! :)

  2. I’ve never had a white sweet potato! I’ll have to keep an eye out at the farmer’s market.

    As for something yummy I ate yesterday, I had some parmesan & herb popcorn that was SO good!

    • They are quite tasty, I hope you find them :) I had seen them in some instagram pictures and I couldn’t wait to try them out for myself!

      Did you make the parmesan & herb popcorn??? Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks!!

  3. Are you talking about Japanese sweet potatoes? They are purplish on the outside but white and sweet on the inside. Those are delish!
    Best thing I ate yesterday was some cookie dough … yup, no qualms about admitting that. Thanks for joining the linkup – love looking at people’s eats and sharing my own:)

    • These potatoes looked almost like a white potato on the outside but were more yellow then brown! They weren’t the japanese sweet potatoes but those are delicious too!

      mmmm cookie dough!! I wish I had some right now.
