I’m so glad you enjoyed or appreciated yesterday’s post. I truly appreciate every single person who reads what I have to say (or not say) on this blog And I’m glad that even though I didn’t mention it, you guys are OK with my appreciation of a quality (or even not very quality, who am I kidding?) cocktail
Oh, right, and Happy Halloween!
I have to admit, Halloween is my least favorite holiday (I know, I know) and this year I really slacked on celebrating. Not only did I not even buy a costume for me or Niko (see Niko’s past Halloween costumes,) but we also slacked on carving pumpkins. Heck, I haven’t even gotten candy for the trick-or-treaters yet! And to be completely honest, if I didn’t care what my neighbors thought of Shane and me (Shane cares a lot more, ha) I’d probably just leave the porch light off – but I’m not that bad
Anyway, this week brings the return of What I Ate Wednesday to Your Trainer Paige!
But this time, with a twist! Usually, I post my Tuesday eats, just because it’s the day before – and I don’t remember until then. This week, however, I decided to show my rest day meals and snacks. I take 1-2 rest days per week, and one is almost always on Sunday.
So here’s this past Sunday’s eats!
8:30 am – breakfast: oatmeal:
The night before was the wedding, so I slept in all the way until 7:30, which is late for me. I had to train an in-home client in an hour, so I made a bowl of pumpkin oats, made pretty much like Courtney’s way.
12:30 pm – lunch: BLT + raddish:
Yum. I don’t know why I don’t make this more often!
2:30ish pm – snack: two trail mix cookies:
And some pom arils:
5:00 pm – football snack: carrots and guac:
7:00 pm – dinner: eggplant parmesan:
Not feeling too hungry due to my earlier snacks, I made an easy dinner of egg plant parmesan (sliced eggplant roasted with breadcrumbs/parmesan/spices mix,) some mozzarella, a little quinoa, spinach, and some marinara.
I love eggplant parmesan the most served on crusty, toasted baguette, but this was delicious, too.
Fitness: pretty much nada
thumb workout via catching up on Nashville
25 minute Niko walk
That’s it! I don’t change up too much on rest days. I guess the main change is the meals/snacks are less involved.
Do your eats look different on rest days vs. workout days?
