Good morning everyone, welcome to a new round of WIAW – What I ate Wednesday hosted by Jen over at Peas and Crayons.
What WIAW isn’t about –
Comparison – Judgement – Restriction – Guilt
What WIAW IS about –
Celebrating one of the glorious things we all have in common: We all eat!
We all know that these are my meals from Tuesday, so be prepared for some good Tuesday stuff.
My schedule included my first personal training with Daniel. Since I want to get leaner/tone up my body, he suggested that we start to do some heavier weight lifting than I am used to. He also adviced me not to do another workout on that day. It was weird for me to get up and not workout first thing in the morning, but I followed his advice and only went with my meditation.
I baked this Banana-Protein-Muffin on Monday evening and was excited to have it in the morning, it tastes delicious! The recipe is from Danielle and I use it quite regularly. I am in love with pomseeds lately – so delicious!!
The very rare time I have coffee, I drink black espresso or espresso macchiato. I got this one yesterday which I think is totally cute.
Breakfast was very early and did not hold me over until lunch. I grabbed one of my favorite food since this weekend – a savory chicken thigh muffin!!
I also prepped a huge batch of Quinoa to grab and go during the week. This is what I love with meal prep. I always cook up a good amount of Quinoa, Sweet Potatoes, chicken, and a huge bowl of veggies. This way I can just throw the things together I feel like having for lunch or dinner, warm it up – perfect.
Before my weight lifting session I had to dig in on some energy – since my weekend was full of baking and cooking, I had these ready too:
I could eat ONE – they are very filling and got a bit too sweet for my taste.
And believe me, I was pretty darn glad I had this booster. The workout was REALLY challenging!! Daniel guided me through this:
We did 10 rounds (10 reps, 9 reps, 8 reps etc.) – and YES, I felt almost dead after…..:-) But it was great and I am looking forward to be challenged more!
In the evening one of my best friends came over like many times on a Tuesday. We made it kind of a tradition to do a healthy dinner date at my place with girlschat, watching shows and throwing some good foods together.
Oh well, ya know….I might be 34 but I can be so entertained by these…..
Have a great Wednesday friends!!
