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.
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
I will share the recipe this week!
