I’m loving that it’s already Wednesday, how about you?! I think we should always have 4 day work weeks
I debated on which day of my food journal to share with you guys today. I really wanted to share with you my Memorial Day eats but I forgot to snap a bunch of pictures so that didn’t work.
I’m linking up with Jenn and the What I Ate Wednesday Crew to share my food journal from yesterday!
I woke up nice and early on Tuesday and immediately started getting organized for the day. I drank a glass of water and then poured myself a cup of french vanilla coffee with a splash of milk. I had plenty of time to cook myself breakfast but I was starving, so I resorted to my usual… 2 eggs + extra egg whites, sautéed spinach with olive oil & whole grain toast plus some watermelon.
I headed to the YMCA shortly after to train some of my clients. They got in some fabulous workouts and everyone was working hard.
I was starving for some reason so I quickly ate a banana
and then had some oatmeal with almond milk & peanut butter.
My lunch came early. I don’t know why I was so hungry yesterday but I couldn’t help but eat! I chose a leftover salad with grilled chicken, peppers, cucumber, tomatoes, & mozzarella cheese. This picture looks a little messy but it was SO tasty. I also had some baby carrots with it.
With my lunch I snacked on a Coconut Chia Bar! I love these little things but I secretly wish they were double the size.
Since this was a day of hunger I knew I needed a snack that would keep me full. Thank goodness for protein shakes right? I had a Vanilla Shakeology with a scoop of peanut butter & a granny smith apple.
Dinner was my favorite meal of the day. On Boot Camp nights I always eat something simple. I had a grilled turkey burger topped with avocado and over some baby spinach and of course a baked Sweet Potato w/ a little butter on the side! There’s something so satisfying about avocado on a turkey burger!! TRY IT!
I wasn’t hungry after class. Normally I would drink a protein shake but I just couldn’t get myself to make one. I ending up cutting up some ripe plantains.
I pan roasted them with a little canola oil and Marc enjoyed them with me.
I also ended up having a couple of my Cookie Dough Protein Bites & some grapes.
I was so excited to watch the first episode of Extreme Weight Loss with Chris Powell last night it’s such a motivating and inspiring show. However, I didn’t make it up for the last 45 minutes!! I can’t stay up until 11pm on weeknights so I will have to watch the rest on demand. Don’t tell me what the twins look like!
What’s something yummy you ate yesterday?
Do you like plantains?
