woohoo it’s hump day!

Today I am linking up with the WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) Crew to share my food journal with you from Monday.

WHAT-I-ATE-WEDNESDAY-NEW-BUTTON-PEAS-AND-CRAYONS

It’s very rare that I wake up super sleepy but on Monday I woke up a few minutes before my alarm and I didn’t want to get out of bed. I’m not sure if my active weekend caught up with me but my first thought was how am I going to teach 2 classes today and chase a toddler! After a tall glass of water and 1/2 cup of coffee I started to feel a little more normal.

My breakfast was 2 eggs, 2 egg whites, sauteed spinach and toast. Plus I ate some of Ava’s bacon. yummyyy.

After Group Power class I refueled with a Vanilla Protein Shake + a small banana

Plus… 1 tbsp of Peanut Butter & a small bowl of oatmeal with coconut milk. It’s a pretty delicious post workout snack!

I headed back to the YMCA around 10am to teach my Senior fitness class. We are running out of space for that class because so many people have joined over the last two weeks. It is very exciting to have a big group!

At lunch time I was craving red meat and we had some leftover hamburgers that we cooked over the weekend so I quickly made a salad with tomato, cucumber, yellow bell peppers and topped it with my burger and some dijon vinaigrette! After I finished the salad I realized I wasn’t full so I had mashed sweet potato with butter. Perfect.

Through out the day I was very mindful of fueling my body with healthy eats to keep my energy level up!

After computer & blog work in the afternoon my stomach started rumbling to no surprise. My snack was a golden delicious apple plus some cucumber slices topped with avocado! It was pretty random but I liked it. I have noticed that when I have my healthy fats in the afternoon I’m more satisfied until dinner time.

For dinner we had Pesto Grilled Chicken, Green beans w/ sliced almonds, and a baked potato! It was so perfect and delicious. You can check out the recipe for the green beans in my post from yesterday.

After dinner we took Mr. Cooper for a walk and then put Ava to bed. I did some more computer work and snacked on a Chocolate Protein Oat Bar with some strawberries :)

  1. Love the cucumber-avocado idea! And those bars… can’t wait for the recipe! Happy Hump Day!

    • You should try the cucumber/avocado snack with a little sprinkle of sea salt its delicious!

      I will be posting the Protein Oat bar recipe next week!

  2. Girl I too was dying on Monday. I blame my situation on being sick. Either way it wasn’t how I wanted to start my week. Do you follow a certain recipe for the pesto chicken?

    • I hope you are feeling better! That’s gotta be so hard to take care of yourself and your 2 girls! We don’t get sick days as moms :(

      I usually follow a pesto recipe that I have, but this time we used Buitoni Pesto and my husband grilled the chicken! It’s still super tasty but I prefer homemade pesto!

  3. The chocolate oat bar looks yummy. Do you have a recipe?

    • Hi Emily! The Chocolate Oat Bar is delicious and so easy to make. I’ll post the recipe next week so check back :)

  4. THOSE EGGS are utter perfection! I would love to top them with some olive tomato tapenade!

    • I literally love eggs, I eat them every single day!!

      That’s a good idea to top eggs with olive tapenade, I never thought of that :)
