******

A lot of my fellow bloggers participate in a blog link up called What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) which showcase what one eats in a day. It’s not always one full day of eats and it’s usually not Wednesday’s eats, it’s just posted on Wednesday. Sometimes it’s the persons favorite snacks, or lunches from the past week , or just delicious foods they’ve been enjoying. It’s really anything the blogger wants it to be. You can read more about it HERE. Thanks to Jenn for hosting the party!

Lets take a look at my Monday’s eats…

6:45 AM Wake up. I had a cup of coffee, an egg and a bowl of oatmeal (rolled oats, cinnamon, fresh nutmeg, vanilla, water) before heading to Body Pump at the Y from 8-9 AM. Fun fact: I stole that mug from my parents house when I moved out years ago. It reminds my of my childhood and that always makes me happy 🙂

9:15 AM After BP I always like to have a protein shake and since I was meeting Melissa at 9:30 at Starbucks (within walking distance from the Y) I made a shake the night before and left it in my car during the class to defrost a bit and ate that while waiting for Melissa. In my shake is a scoop of chocolate protein powder, spoonful of special dark cocoa powder, handful of spinach, a few drops of mint extract, ice and almond milk. Chocolate minty goodness.

9:30 AM I ordered My high maintenance Komodo Dragon cold brewed iced coffee with whole milk. Melissa had a regular iced coffee with cream. We chatted for a little over an hour. I treasure my time with her, as she is super duper busy and works odd hours, so our hangout dates aren’t very often.

After coffee, I went to Publix and grabbed some necessities. Once home, I put the groceries away and started a load of laundry.

11:30 AM I started getting hungry, so I grabbed a snack. Pistachios and a plum.

I still wanted to eat more- I’m such a grazer- so I grabbed a small handful of M&Ms (Seminole colors for Ashley) and roasted spaghetti squash seeds 🙂

Once my belly was content, I took Riley for a quick walk before jumping on our stationary bike for a 30 minute “ride.” Oh, I put the laundry into the dryer before biking. I know you were worried about that.

Like that set up? I’ve got the fan blowing on me, my laptop for entertainment and the Food Network on for white noise/food inspiration. After my bike, I showered and whipped together a quick lunch, which will also act as dinner for Todd on a night I’m working.

1:30 AM Yellow rice and ground beef with a side of brussel sprouts and a Justin’s Dark Chocolate PB Cup for dessert 🙂

Then came time to take Riley to the vet. More on this in another post

4:30 PM Get home from the vet and have a small bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats. I have a hard time keeping my cereal portions in check, so thankfully, Todd was home and able to rein in my second (and probably third) bowls I would’ve had on my own, haha. Then I put the laundry through Tumble/Press Cycle and folded it.

6:30PM Tacos and salad for dinner. Sorry. No pic of the salad, but you know what lettuce and dressing looks like.

8:30 PM And of course an almond butter shot for dessert 🙂

So there ya go. That was my Monday. Not too shabby if you ask me. There were a couple of unpictured eats, like the bite of the sandwich I made for Todd’s lunch the next day. Yes. I send him to work with a bite out of his sammie… I just blame it on Riley 🙂 And then spoonfuls of peanut butter and jelly consumed while making his pb&j. Yes, again, I make Todd’s lunch the day before like he’s a school student. It’s the least I can do for him being such a wonderful husband!

How do you guys feel about WIAW? Like? Love? Hate?

  1. Awww!! I’m sure that your husband appreciates you making his lunch the night before!! That’s so cute!! I love it!! Also, what yummy eats. I love organic peanut butter cups!! Yummy! I also really love tacos for dinner! They’re so fun to make, too because you can get really creative with them!! Nice shot, too! Delicious! XOXO!!

    • Tacos really are such a fun dinner. I love a make your own topping bars kind thing.
      Wonder what my doc would say if I told him I took a shot every night, haha 😉

  2. I LOVE WIAW but I’ve never participated because I eat the same things every single day and it’s entirely too boring and embarrassing to post for the world to see!

    • I pretty much eat the same thing everyday, too. I wasn’t working this Monday because I had to take Riley to the vet, so it was more interesting, haha.

  3. I don’t participate in WIAW, but I love looking at what other like to eat!! I love your “high maintenance” Starbucks order. I wish I liked iced coffee, but I’m not really a fan. I love Komodo hot though! I’ll still need to give it a try iced.

    • I like looking at people’s eats, too, but wanted to give it a go. Why don’t you like iced coffee? Because it gets watered down a bit? You should just make a tall Komodo Iced to try it 😉

  4. Loved it!!! You can do another What I ate Wednesday blog! The spinach in the smoothie grosses me out. Just don’t love spinach in my smoothies! I love spinach salads, love spinach with pasta but not in liquid form!

  5. Thanks for the M&M shout out!! 1. My favorite candy (duh) and 2. Those colors get me soooo excited for the fast approaching football season!! Woot woot! Miss you lobeeee!!
