Yesterday Marc and I were productive from the second we woke up until the second we went to bed. We used Tuesday as a day to get stuff done around the house that we have been putting off for a long time. Weather wise yesterday was supposed to be the cloudy & humid day for the week so it was the perfect day to skip the “fun” outdoor activities.
I had no plans or thoughts for my meals yesterday but they came together and they were all clean & simple.
I’m linking up with the What I Ate Wednesday crew to share my food journal from yesterday.
We woke up at 6am which I’m actually thankful about because Ava has been waking us up at 5am for the past week so I felt like I slept in! I had a small cup of coffee and made us a quick breakfast. It wasn’t anything fancy because our fridge was EMPTY.
2 over easy eggs with 2 pieces of toast with spinach! I was definitely feeling the carbs. I also had a bowl of blueberries.
We took Cooper and Ava for a long walk. After our walk Marc and I headed into the basement to start organizing and making piles of stuff that needed to get dumped. Marc made 2 dump runs and I entertained Ava in the basement. She started to get a little tired so we took a break, ate a snack… I had a Chocolate Shakeology, a peach, and some trail mix. Ava had some trail mix, some cereal & milk. That gave us a little more energy to keep cleaning until Ava took a nap.
Once Ava was asleep we were able to get a lot more done! I can honestly say that cleaning and going up and downstairs a zillion times is a great workout. I was DONE around lunch time.
Lunch was leftover chicken marsala with broccoli & some potatoes.
I also had an apple and a string cheese.
Once Ava was up from her nap we decided to spend our afternoon doing other things besides basement cleaning. We took a trip to the library to get some books, Ava really enjoyed it. We also made a quick trip to the grocery store to grab dinner. I did some “boot camp” work on the computer ate a bowl of oatmeal & peanut butter.
Time was flying and dinner was here before we knew it. Marc made Lemon Crusted Tilapia with suateed zucchini and sweet potatoes. Simple & DELICIOUS. It was the perfect pre-workout dinner. I always like to eat a little lighter before my boot camp class.
After a SWEATY and I mean super sweaty class (I was soaked) I quickly showered and then had a Chocolate Quest Bar & Some pan fried Plantains! Sorry no picture of the plantains, totally forgot.
Although we are on vacation, all of my meals were consumed at home because of our choice to organize and clean our basement. I’m happy we were so productive and got one of the things checked off our to-do list!! It felt great.
Do you find it easier to eat healthy at home?
What’s your favorite leftovers?
