Happy Wednesday – It’s my birthday!! I keep seeing the WIAW (what I ate Wednesday) posts and thought I would join in the fun! This will be my first ever WIAW post. I love seeing what other people are eating, and also getting ideas for new meals. I hope you can find some inspiration from mine, or just see that I’m normal and sometimes I don’t always eat healthy. I do like to treat myself and indulge in something not-so-good for me every now and then. I’m excited join in on this link up and share with you what I ate. You can join in the fun too here or here.
Today I’m sharing what I ate on Monday! I woke up and immediately went out for a run. I usually eat before, but if you’ve been following me, you know I’ve been struggling with some tummy troubles while running. So instead of eating before my run, I waited to eat afterwards. I ran five miles, and then another mile with my dog. Once I got home, my stomach was growling.
9:30 Breakfast – Bob’s Red Mill chocolate banana protein shake / green tea (enter my giveaway for your chance to win your own Bob’s protein powder!)
12:45 Lunch – I had a turkey sandwich with mustard, swiss cheese, and lettuce on Sara Lee 45 calorie bread with a side of avocado.
3:00 snack – pineapple
Jeremy was working late, so I knew it would be late when we ate. I had to have another snack.
6:30 snack – fruit – I always have frozen fruit thawed out in the fridge.
I was super hungry by the time we ate dinner. But, I don’t like eating so late, so I tried not to eat too much. We had so much food, so we actually had a whole meal leftover for dinner on Tuesday night.
8:45 dinner – Grilled chicken, grilled veggies, sweet potato, and salad. Jeremy grilled some steaks for himself.
9:30 dessert – Cheesecake – I made my first ever cheesecake, and it turned out pretty good. I was disappointed that it split, but it tasted great! I used Tricia Yearwood’s recipe, and it was super easy. I substituted low fat cream cheese, light sour cream, light butter, and low fat graham crackers and it was still super rich! (I was so full by the time we got to dessert, that I only ate a couple of bites.)
That’s all I ate on Monday! See you next Wednesday with another day’s worth of good eats!
