Well we made it to Wednesday!
Happy Hump Day (if you’re into that sort of thing)!
Out of my 10 mile goal this week I’m at 4.5! Not too shabby considering I took the night off yesterday. I ran 3 miles straight tonight in just under 35 minutes. That’s another personal best for me – seeing as I’ve never ran for that long nonstop before! And I didn’t even feel that tired after!! I’m tellin’ ya it’s my legs that start to feel it more than my lungs, which I suppose is a good thing. I’m totally going to crush this.
Anywho, I’m super excited to participate for the first time everrrrrrr in What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW for short!). Hosted by Jenn at Peas and Crayons, a blog I’ve recently discovered and love, it’s essentially a chance to take a peek at what I (and about 200 other participants should you so desire) ate today (or, ya know, whenever whomever feels like taking pictures of their food). I’ve always felt kinda silly taking pictures of everything I eat, and I’m so happy to have found a community online that does the same thing!!
March’s WIAW theme is Going Green for March!! So you’ll be seeing lots of green – veggies and herbs and fruits and mugs (I have a big green Lilo & Stitch mug that I love so very much. It makes it’s debut appearance below!!!).
Breakfast: 3 egg whites scrambled up in my big green mug with Wegmans brand “Don’t be Piggy” veggie sausage crumbles, red bell pepper, red onion, a sprinkle of grated parm, 1/2 of a whole wheat english muffin topped with some Smart Balance and a cup of Yogi Skin Detox Tea. Also, a big water bottle full of lemon water. Yum. This was the first of the Wegmans new veggie meat substitues I’ve tried and I thought it was great! I can’t wait to try their “Don’t be Chicken Nuggets.”
Snack: String cheese, not pictured, because I got halfway through it before I thought about photographing it and decided, ya’ll know what string cheese looks like anyway.
Lunch: Campbell’s Go-Soup Coconut Curry with Chicken and Shitake Mushrooms. Have you tried any of these soups yet? I LOVE them!! This one and the Chicken & Quinoa with Poblano Chiles are my two faves. Even though today wasn’t as snowy as expected it was flippen cold. Perfect day for a big mug of soup!
Little Snack: Sometimes, ya just gotta have some chocolate! Ferrero Rocher – seriously – who doesn’t love these?? Johnny got me a pack for Valentine’s Day that I’m savoring. I had it with some black tea with one splenda and skim milk (my favorite way to drink black tea!).
Pre-Workout Snack: Larabar’s new Über Roasted Nut Roll. It was pretty good – not my favorite Larabar (which actually goes to their Lemon Bar – though the Blueberry Muffin, Carrot Cake, and Cappuccino flavors are all still eluding me *sigh*) but certainly not bad either! It tastes like nuts. Ha. I’m not sure what else I was expecting. It did totally hold me over through my run until dinner though!
Dinner: I threw together some quick chicken burritos for dinner once we got home from the gym. Poached and shredded some chicken thighs and threw it in a pan with sauteed bell peppers, onion, black beans, and cooked brown rice. Added some salsa and a chopped up chipotle pepper and served it inside of a whole wheat tortilla topped with more salsa, pickled jalapenos, lettuce, and cheddar. Delightful!
I’m not gonna lie, I’m probably going to have a glass of chocolate milk as soon as I’m done writing this. I hope you enjoyed this post! I promised you a shrimp recipe on Monday and you’ll get it I swear…just not tonight.
Peace out girl scouts!
