WIAW: surprise dinner



In case you missed my post yesterday be sure to check it out for a chance to win a FREE BAG OF FIGGY POPS!!

This week is a short one for me and I’m SO excited for another long weekend with my family. It’s been a great holiday season but after this weekend I’m ready to get back to a schedule and some “healthier” eating. Do you agree?? I have been eating healthy about 85% of the time but I would like to bump it to 90% which means not randomly grabbing a leftover chocolate cookie to snack on after breakfast :(


I’m linking up with the What I ate Wednesday crew over on Laura’s Blog Today, to share my food journal with you from Monday.

I woke up starving Monday morning and the first thing I could think about was getting my belly full. I made 2 Scrambled Eggs with peppers & potatoes, 1/2 cup of coffee, and a glass of water. This meal never fails.


After Group Power I was STARVING and my body needed to refuel immediately. While I was packing up my stuff in the room I drank my protein shake and I ate the banana in the car!


Once I got home I made myself a piece of toast topped with avocado and egg whites. I also finished Ava’s eggs that were on her plate from breakfast.. I don’t waste any food.


Oh and this Chocolate chip cookie made it into my morning. Thank goodness they are officially GONE!


I headed back to the YMCA around 1015 to teach my Fit For Life class. It was a challenging workout for the group and everyone left feeling good. Once again my belly was rumbling and I decided I was going to make a quick lunch at home. I had the same thing as last week, go figure. It’ probably because I HATE deciding what to eat. When there’s stuff in the fridge I just grab it and eat it. Sometimes my laziness with food gets the best of me.

A chicken salad pita sandwich. With a side of veggie & cabbage soup. I apologize for no picture, I will blame my hunger on that one.


In the afternoon I opted for a string cheese, I gave a TINY piece to Cooper because he heard me open the cheese drawer and came running. I couldn’t say no. I also had some baby carrots and watermelon.

Dinner was my favorite meal of the day. Marc cooked dinner and basically surprised me with a delicious meal. I knew we were having steak but I didn’t know what else he put together. First I had some salad.


That was an appetizer because I was so hungry. It wasn’t fancy but it did the job.

Then we had steak with a balsamic reduction, roasted sun chokes, and parsnip fries!


It was healthy & tasty, my kinda meal. I’m pretty much all for Marc cooking. Whenever he cooks I know it’s going to taste amazing. I also love the fact that he cooked and cleaned up everything. I hate doing dishes so this was awesome, I felt very spoiled.

Because my night is never complete without some sort of snack. I cut up a nice size bowl of strawberries and also ate a random bowl of leftover mashed potatoes.


I guess since I only had veggies and meat for dinner my body was saying give me carbs. Or I just wanted them :)

Your turn: What’s something yummy you ate this week?

Are you looking forward to getting back on track in the New Year?

  1. Avocado toast!!! :) I haven’t had it, but it looks YUMMY! :) And you can still eat watermelon? O_O

    • Omg I highly recommend the avocado toast with eggs. It’s pretty amazing. I also sprinkle sea salt on top it’s always a win!!

      I know the watermelon was random but it was on sale and it was already cut so I didn’t hesitate to buy it :) I enjoy it after my workouts to stay hydrated.

  2. All of your snacks look so good. And I feel you on being happy the cookies are gone – I can’t waste them and I just grab one whenever i walk by the kitchen! Your hubby’s dinner sounds great!

    • Thanks Sarah!! I can’t wait to get back to no sugar and sweets. It’s been my downfall this holiday season!!

  3. Oh goodness, this all looks delicious. When I finished the last of the Christmas cookies, I was equally happy and sad…

    • omg me too hahah. I am happy they are gone now though because when they were around it made me want more and more. Now that they are out of sight I don’t seem to think about cookies!

  4. That avocado toast looks amazing! For some reason that’s something I never seem to have!
