I’ve got a What I Ate Wednesday for you guys this week! I figured since my eats are pretty much the same thing, with a few variations, I’d just do a WIAW every other week. Don’t want ya’ll to get bored! With starting my new position on Monday, I’m still in the transition phase and they don’t have someone to take my place, so I’m pretty much doing two jobs- at two desks, haha. It’s keeping me busy, that’s for sure 🙂
Pre-Breakfast: (New desk) Lemon water. Ever since I tried it a week ago, I’ve been sticking to it and enjoy the warm mug each morning.
Breakfast: (Old desk) The usual yogurt parfait- 2% Greek yogurt, cut up frozen berries, slivered almonds and puffed rice cereal.
Lunch: (New desk) There was a catered lunch at work and they put the left over food in the break room, so I snagged a salad and a bread stick! Score! It was pretty boring, though, and just had chicken, carrots, red onion, tomatoes and cheddar cheese. But hey, it was free!
I had brought Trader Joe’s Melodious Blend to got with my lunch, so I just had that and the bread stick on the side. These lentils are super good and so easy- just put into a container and warm up. Easy, delicious and healthy.
After work, I headed to the YMCA to take Body Pump. I’ve really been trying to stick with lifting and keep my muscles strong during pregnancy.
Dinner: The BP class is later in the evening and honestly, with the craziness at work, hoping back and forth between desks and working a bit later than normal, I just did not feel like cooking. SO, a smoothie it was 🙂 Pumpkin pie to be exact! Almond milk, ice, vanilla protein powder, oats, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and spinach. Obviously the spinach won the color battle…
Dessert: I treated myself to a Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookie– Double Chocolate. Remember, these bad boys have 16 grams of protein for the whole cookie! I was just going to have half, but that didn’t go as planned, haha. It’s like 400 calories for a whole one, but considering I had a small dinner I was cool with it.I’ll get back to cooking tomorrow. Even with a busy day, it was a good one. I’m excited to delve more into my new position and enjoy me new desk… in my new office… yaaaaaaa I said office. I’ll tell you more Friday 🙂 Happy Hump Day!
Do you ever just have a smoothie or something similar for dinner?
