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?
