WIAW: Eating for 2


Thank goodness this week is going fast. Last week was a long one and I’m happy this one is on the speedy side.

I want to throw a couple fist pumps in the air for warmer weather. Do you feel me or what???

I know I’m random but that’s me… now since it’s Wednesday lets get into the food talk.



I’m linking up with the What I ate Wednesday Crew over on Arman’s Blog today to share my food journal with you from Monday.

People make the comment a lot about eating for 2 when you are pregnant and that’s not really the case. You only need about an extra 300 calories a day but let me tell you some days I do feel like I am eating for 2 and my appetite has been increasing.

On Monday I woke up at 5:45am for 2 reasons. 1. My body knew I had to get going and ready to teach our new Group Power workout and 2. I had to pee.

I woke up a little tired but chugged some water and sipped on a little bit of coffee as I whipped together breakfast.


2 eggs, sautéed spinach with olive oil & potatoes. This is my regular simple healthy & filling breakfast.

I headed to the YMCA around 7am to teach GROUP POWER. It was an awesome workout and I’m sure every inch of my body will feel it tomorrow.


I refueled with a banana and a chocolate shakeology which is hard to see in this picture.


and some random the Good Bean Sea Salt chickpeas. Ava was eating them and she made them sound good!

We headed back to the Y for my second class. I got a good sweat and I left the class STARVING. I said it to Ava on the car ride home and she said Mommy are you starving and I said yesssssss. She’s too funny.

I quickly came home to heat up some leftovers.


Chicken Marsala, roasted potatoes, carrots & broccoli. I wish I could have had seconds but there was none left.

I also ate this delicious orange.


I’m on an orange kick and I feel like my day is not complete without one. Costco sells them in a giant box so it will last me a couple weeks!

My metabolism must’ve been kicked in high gear because my hunger came a lot quicker then it normally does. Around 2:15 I needed a snack.

I opted for a peanut butter sandwich. I needed something that would fill me up for a while.


In the late afternoon we went for a long walk with Cooper. As much as my body didn’t want to move, I knew he needed the exercise so we made it happen. I literally was spent after the walk but it was time to cook dinner.

I decided to make a simple lean beef taco salad. We topped our salad with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, salsa, ground beef & guacamole. It was so delicious. I also had tortilla chips with this and a second serving :)


Because this day needed another meal I snacked on a yogurt with mixed berries & granola while Marc and I watched the episode of Scandal from last Thursday.


WOW it was a good one. If you haven’t seen the show I definitely recommend you watch it on Netflix. This season has been awesome.

Your turn: What’s something delicious you have eaten this week? 

What is your favorite night time snack?

  1. Happy pregnancy! I’m due in June, and I get it about some days feeling like you ARE”(unintentionally) eating for two. Looks like a great day of eats!

  2. I haven’t watched the most recent season (or two) of Scandal but I loved the first couple seasons! I need to get back into it :)

    Sounds like you had an active day, so I think I’d be super hungry just eating for one! haha

  3. I haven’t watched Scandal since the winter finale, so I’m not forced to wait for it to come on Netflix. I’m so bad at watching shows as they air

  4. I love seeing how you fuel yourself for growing that precious baby. Those chickpeas sound YUMMY! Isn’t taco salad the best?
