WIAW: Labor Day Eats


Hello there and happy hump day!

I’m happy to feeling healthy today and off to teach Group Power as you read this. I wanted to back up a bit to Labor Day and share some of my food journal with you. After a weekend of pretty much no big events, my eats weren’t that exciting but they were healthy :)

I’m linking up with the WIAW crew to share my eats from Labor Day.


I woke up around 6am on Monday when my little alarm clock child started calling Mama & dada until Marc decided he was going to get up and let me sleep. I was so thankful he let me shut my eyes for another hour because I was still craving more sleep.

At around 7am I woke up and headed downstairs and Ava greeted me with a big smile. I knew it was going to be a good day.

I made us all eggs for breakfast and Marc went out to buy us some iced coffee. I had over easy eggs with spinach & toast. yum. Marc & Ava had scrambled eggs with cheese.


At around 830 we took Cooper for a long walk. When we returned I quickly made a Chocolate Shakeology and then we headed out to Kohl’s so I could pick my dad up a Fit Bit for his Birthday.


My dad is a gadget man and he’s really into walking/logging his activity so I knew this would be the perfect gift.

We got home around 11am and I snacked on some carrots with Ava before we put her down for a nap. At 12pm my stomach was rumbling again so I knew I needed a big lunch. My taste buds were pretty off from the cold we had over the weekend so I opted to eat food that was leftover. I had a piece of Pesto Chicken, Spinach & Sweet Potato Burger 


and some Apple & Fennel Salad that Marc made. It was delicious and filling.IMG_7107

Ava took a long nap and I got some computer work done before she woke up. I had some nuts & fruit for a snack.

We headed to my parents house around 3pm to have a cookout for my Dad’s birthday & labor day. It’s always nice to hang out with my family and enjoy the weather outside on the deck.

For dinner we had hamburgers, BBQ grilled chicken, potato salad, pasta salad, salad, zucchini, green beans, etc.


Plus cheesecake & anisette cookies for dessert. Believe it or not I don’t like cheesecake but its my dad’s favorite. So I opted for a cookie instead!


It was a great end to the weekend.


Isn’t this picture so cute of my Dad and Ava holding hands!!!!

What’s something yummy you ate on labor day?

Are you pumped it’s almost the weekend already?
