Well happy hump day everyone!
I don’t know about you, but this week is actually going pretty quickly for me. I can’t believe that it’s already Wednesday! It probably helps that I’ve been super swamped at work, which definitely makes the days go by fast. One of those things where you blink your eyes and it’s 4pm already. Too much to do, too little time!
(But of course, on those weeks when you DON’T have anything to do, the time inches along like it’s your own personal circle of hell. Tell me someone else feels the same way!)
Anyway, it is Wednesday and you all know what that means! Time for a What I Ate Wednesday post!
For anyone not familiar with What I Ate Wednesday, please head over to Jenn’s blog for a lovely example and a great explanation about the WIAW phenomenon and the meaning behind it.
This month Jenn specifically challenged us to eat more veggies, and I took that on for sure! These are my eats from Tuesday.
I was in an little bit of an oatmeal rut yesterday (don’t worry, I’m back again today), so I decided to make something a little different. Honey Nut Cheerios with some fruit, and a half of an english muffin with peanut butter. Simple, but it did manage to keep me full for awhile, which is a plus. With tea on the side, of course. Need caffeine.
Lunch was a bunch of leftovers from the Super Bowl. I ate the rest of the buffalo chicken dip with some celery and carrot sticks, and paired it with some roasted red pepper hummus. Lots of veggies which totally filled me up. But I sure got my fill of beta carotene today – just look at all that orange! Orange dip, orange hummus AND orange carrots!
Around 4pm I usually feel the tummy start grumbling, so I usually take a snack break. One of my favorites in Chobani because it definitely manages to fill me up until lunch. And, you know, it’s freaking delicious. Blueberry flavor this time.
We had some leftover shredded chicken from the buffalo dip, so I decided to whip up some quesadillas. Except that by the time I got home, I wasn’t feeling salsa anymore (I know, SUPER weird for me). But I was feeling BBQ. So we made BBQ quesadillas instead, with BBQ chicken, mozzarella, and caramelized onions. Side of broccoli.
Dinner part 2
About 30 minutes after dinner Chris was still hungry, so he whipped up some sweet potato fries (no pic, sorry). I munched on those when he wasn’t looking. Because obviously I needed MORE orange food in my life today!
There you have it – what I ate today!
I did manage to make it to the gym, and started a new phase of Best Body Bootcamp, which definitely helped with my workout blahs. Today’s workout was shoulders and legs, and boy was I feeling it – ESPECIALLY in my shoulders! I was dying by the end!
One of my new favorite moves though is the plie lunge.
I mentioned them before last time I did Best Body Bootcamp when Tina incorporated them as well, but I’d completely forgotten all about them. But they may be one of my new favorite moves again. One of those that just hurts so good! And boy am I feeling it today!
Well that’s all for today folks!
So tell me: What did you eat today? Have you ever done curtsy lunges?
