What I Ate Wednesday–Surrounded by Fitness
Oh coffee, you complete me.
I’ve been trying to limit my coffee to one cup, but honestly, ever since Estes Park, I’ve been failing miserably. Just need that one extra cup!!
Today I thought I’d participate in the ever popular What I Ate Wednesday.
Yesterday was a particularly interesting day of eats, due to my workouts, and since this month’s theme is fitness, I thought it was fitting, no?
Let’s dive right into it!
Breakfast #1 – 7:45 AM (post-coffee, pre-workout):
1 thick (probably worth 2 slices) of whole grain toast, topped with a little PB2, jam, and yogurt mixture, and some black berries. This was my pre-workout breakfast, which is why it’s lacking a little in protein and fat. My workouts are best done on mostly carbs, so this had the perfect ratio for me.
Plus, it settled down just in time for a 9:00 Body Attack class.
I have to admit, I was a little out of my element – especially since I was one of five class attendees. The only class I’ve taken at my gym in the past year has been spin and yoga, but since this week is my self-proclaimed group fitness week, I stepped out of the box. Luckily, I had a blast, and was surprised by how sweaty I was when the class ended.
It provided a good mix of strength and cardio, so by the time I got home and showered, I was ready for breakfast #2
Breakfast # 2 –(post-workout) 10:30 AM :
Fruity PB Chocolate protein shake, made with these ingredients:
+ ice, almond/coconut milk, strawberries, and banana.
And lots and lots of water.
Lunch – 1:45 PM:
This would be the leftover spaghetti from Sunday night. It was just as yummy, but this time I combined my leftover zucchini noodles along with some of the quinoa blend pasta, too. Delish.
Snack – 3:45 PM (pre-cardio):
Apple and BCAA’s. I had a half hour in between clients, so I hopped on the elliptical. The apple and BCAA drink provided me with enough fuel to get through a half hour of cardio + 2 more clients.
Dinner – 6:30 PM
I was more than ready for dinner when I got home, so I threw together what I thought would be easiest and quickest, which was breakfast for dinner.
2 eggs + 1 egg white, zucchini, tomatoes, corn, and a piece of corn bread. Yep, I finally got my most favorite bread out there Glorious.
Snack – 8:30 PM (post Niko-walk, during Game of Thrones:)
After dinner I took Niko for a little walkie, and when I got back it was time to watch some TV. I had a snack of Greek yogurt, black berries, almond butter, and stevia. After my third day in a row eating ice cream, I thought it’d be wise to switch it back up to something with a little less sugar
So there you have it! A day of eats built around a day of fitness. Just a typical Tuesday!
What do you typically eat before your workout? After?
