WIAW – A Random Assortment

I have to admit, I definitely slept better last night after blogging (despite the horrible-ness of the post).  So I’m back at it again.  And of course, couldn’t miss What I Ate Wednesday.

Shortest intro ever? Quite possibly.

Food first.

Return of the smoothie!  I mentioned yesterday that my little bullet is finally back in working order.  Berries, greens, protein, liquid to blend.

I realized about 30-40 minutes after the smoothie that it did not have much bulk to it, and I needed something a little more to hold me over.  So I grabbed a slice of Ezekiel toast with almond butter and cinnamon.

home-brewed ice coffee with Almond Breeze almond/coconut milk – love this stuff!  and a side of the subway – oh yes I did.

lunch pt. 1/mid morning snack.  hummus and veggies.  staple.

amazing salad for lunch!  lightly steamed greens (kale & chard) with coconut oil, peppers, raisins, hemp seeds, canned salmon, with smoked paprika and ACV.  good. clean. food.

enter snack here:  luna protein bar.

didn’t see this one coming, eh?  Fries at Shake Shack – I ate about half (they weren’t that good) with mustard.  My internship took everyone at the company to shake shack after work.  Honestly, I didn’t even really want the fries, but would felt awkward if I was the only one not eating anything.  I just really don’t care for greasy food.

Went home, snacked on some blueberries while cooking.

apparently I had burgers on the brain anyway?  Or just a portobello in the fridge about to go bad.  So I made my own – grilled portobello with balsamic, s&p on socca flatbread with spinach, mustard avocado.  Plus cucumber “chips” and salsa.  Holy plate of yum!  I must re-make this, make it pretty and write a recipe.

dessert X2. plus 2-3 frozen banana slices.

Now – let’s talk fitness.  I don’t have anything big to say, so here are some random fitness thoughts as of late:

  • I haven’t lifted heavy in almost a month.  I miss it.
  • I’ve now motivated myself to get up early to work out 3 days in a row!
  • running is awesome, and I’m feeling better and stronger every day.
  • I even got in a 9:00 mile on my 6mile run last week!
  • Do this workout.  I did level three yesterday (Tuesday) and it hurt so gooood. (Tina’s workouts are always amazing, and I cannot wait for her bootcamp!)
  • I am dying to try CrossFit.  Would have been done by now if I could afford it!
  • I need some new bodyweight/dumbbell only workouts
  • I miss group fitness classes like none other – mostly pilates, zumba, body pump, body attack, etc.
So there you have it – some of my fitness thoughts as of late.  And food of course – but that’s a given.

 Do you ever crave greasy food?

Any thoughts on my fitness thoughts?

New bodyweight/dumbbell circuits?! Links please!

    Looks like a good day of eats. How is that Almond Coconut milk mix? I was thinking of trying it but I am not a huge fan of coconut milk. It the coconut flavor strong?
    -I am with you regarding greasy food. I do not get the appeal. I used to have it years ago and after not having it for a while I don’t understand how I could ever eat that stuff.
    -I love group classes mainly Kickboxing and Spin.
    -For at home fitness I find toneitup.com has some good strength training and you can check their youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/toneitupcom/ for older videos too.

      Thanks for the suggestions, Ashley! I really like the almond coconut milk – it definitely has a distinct flavor, but it’s super creamy and delicious.

      I love kale in salads, Jemma! I often lightly steam-fry my kale to take the edge off, or else I like to massage it with coconut oil or avocado.
