So nice of you to drop by!
It’s about dang time I join my favorite link-up again,
brought to you be Jenn at Peas and Crayons
and hosted this week by Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets!
I’m excited to be back in the WIAW game, so let’s get right to it!
Breakfast: Chocolate Shakeology with skim milk, spinach, 1/2 a banana, and peanut butter after my core workout. Harcore on the Floor is no effing joke. This was a prime reward. For serious.
Snack: Ezekiel toast with avocado, a hard boiled egg, and a sprinkle of Frank’s Red Hot. AKA the best combination of foods on toast ever of all time.
Lunch: Em and I had matching lunches – which is my favorite kind of lunch! I know I will still have the weekends for matching lunches with my little bug, but I’m really trying to make the most of this week with her!! She had chicken, sweet potato, and broccoli. I had the same – but my chicken had a wee bit of BBQ sauce, topped with cheddar and green onions. Today was a lunch bust, as I put her in her high chair and she lost her mind. She napped through lunch time. Sigh. Tomorrow is another day.
Snack: If you read my meal plan in my last post, you’ll notice this snack was not included. Em was having a pretty nurse-heavy day yesterday and on those days, if I’m hungry, I’m not going to starve myself. I get what I call “the hungry shakes” if I don’t eat enough. Ya know – where you’re so hungry that your hands start shaking and ya get all light headed. Es no bueno! That was about to happen…soooo…insert extra snack. Ezekiel toast with almond butter, 1/2 a banana, and honey AKA the other best combination of foods put on toast ever of all time. Plus decaf iced coffee with skim milk and a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa powder. Not gonna lie – the cocoa powder wasn’t the best decision I’ve ever made. I still drank it, obvi, buuuuut I don’t think I’ll be doing that combo again anytime soon.
Snack Again: It was my last night working in the Kid’s Club at my gym, and I brought a snack and a big ol’ bottle of water to get me by. Yesterday was a bag of snap peas and carrots. Snap peas are my jam lately. I snack on them like it’s my job!
Dinner: Since about January when I started working every Tuesday night our Tuesday’s officially became Taco Tuesday. It’s so quick to make when I get home after 7:00 PM and I’m starving and the hubs just plain loves tacos. I had pretty much always have a taco salad. This right here is a big bed of romaine, cherry tomatoes, peppers, onions, carrots, 3 ounces of turkey taco meat, 1 crumbled taco shell, and a tablespoon of cheddar cheese. Johnny left just a tiny little bit of meat left in the pan when he was done with his…so I may have eaten that too…in a taco shell…with some cheese…over the sink. #noshame
Snack: So after dinner I get Johnny’s food together for work for the following day – like the outstanding wife that I am – and I always make him two peanut butter sandwiches. On a good day, I can control myself and put the peanut butter away untouched. Yesterday was not a good day. I may have had a giant spoon full of peanut butter…sprinkled with chocolate chips. Okay I may have had FOUR giant spoons of peanut butter sprinkled with chocolate chips. Ugh! I can’t be perfect all the time…amiright? Peanut butter is my weakness. It’s a problem. And the first step to having a problem is admitting you have a problem, right? Or something like that.
Peace out, girl scouts!
