Monday was a very busy day for me, but I fueled my body with healthy eats all day long.
I am linking up with the What I ate Wednesday crew to share my food journal from Monday.
My Monday started off early as usual. I woke up and immediately drank a glass of water to get going. I wasn’t really feeling the whole coffee thing, I know its’ weird but I had 2 sips and I was done. I thought to myself I’m going to be tired today but lets try without the caffeine.
I made myself 2 eggs, sautéed spinach and potatoes.
It was perfect and filling. Before I knew it, I had to head out the door to go teach my Group Power class. After teaching the same class the day before, I went into the workout a bit sore and my muscles were tired. I had to lighten my weights on a couple of the exercises so that I could make it to the end!
After class, I refueled with a Chocolate Shakeology with banana, and a serving of Pistachio nuts.
OMG I love pistachios. They are hands down my favorite nut and that’s why I need to portion them out or else I could eat them all. Ava also snacked on some with me.
We packed up and headed back to the YMCA so that I could teach Fit For Life while Ava played at the childcare. My class was packed and we all agreed it was a good workout.
For lunch I ate some leftover chicken cutlets, green beans, baby carrots, 1/2 sweet potato and a granny smith apple.
Healthy & Filling, AGAIN.
Ava napped after lunch, I did my computer work, some blog stuff, & laundry. When she woke up we took Cooper for a quick walk and then I ate a bowl of Peanut Butter Oats with some strawberries.
YUM! (yes that’s a toddler bowl, we ran out of regular ones)
I dropped Ava & Cooper at my parents and headed to one of my in-home clients for a training session. I know it’s my job to train people and help them get into shape but I LOVE IT. There’s something so rewarding about being a personal trainer and I’m so glad I have that opportunity.
I picked Ava & Cooper up, we headed home and I quickly threw some dinner on the table.
When I mean threw together dinner, I mean I opened the fridge, took out some leftover thai food, heated it up and served it on a plate
I had brown rice topped with Chicken Basil and some chicken brown with veggies. It was SO delicious and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed not cooking on a Monday night. I also had seconds which are not pictured!
I finished off my night with a slice of my homemade pumpkin bread & some raspberries and strawberries. The recipe is so good, we have already gone through 2 loafs. I will be posting the recipe soon.
What’s something yummy you ate this week?
Are you a fan of pumpkin bread?
