Wednesday already?? Time flies when you’re having fun…
AKA St. Patty’s weekend full of friends & goodies!
This WIAW is a Spring Break edition because I am home and off of work. Just because I am not at work, I still try my best to stick to a schedule. (I even wake up at 5:30 to go to CrossFit!!) Call me crazy, but if I sleep in everyday, I would feel like a lazy bum!
Don’t forget to pop over to Jenn’s place & see what else is being shared on this wonderful Wednesday 🙂
Alarm went off bright and early–filled up my water bottle and grabbed a paleo Healthy Bite that I made.. ate it in my car. YUM.
At CrossFit, I always drink 2 Starbuck’s Trenta size water bottles. I drink one during the class/workout and refill for the ride home. Seems like a lot, but I need to get things moving (if ya know what I mean!)..
It was our front desk attendant’s birthday (Happy Birthday, Laura!!) and our fabulous trainer, Taysia, made Paleo Brownies (with sweet potato). I grabbed one for later & fully intend on making a version, soon.
When I got back home (~8am), made some coffee and was starved! I made an extra large protein shake this morning. It hit the spot! (recipe to follow) 🙂
without spinach… & with (gotta get the greens in where you can)
I even dipped a ricecake in–my favorite way to eat the shake.
Alongside the protein shake I had a Fuji apple and some unsweetened banana chips.
My tummy started growling around 11:15, but I had some errands to run. I was excited because I knew it was time to try one of my Questbars. I had half of the Cinnamon Bun.
Verdict? It was good… There was not a big cinnamon flavor like I was expecting. It was sweet (maybe like cinnamon bun icing??) with a hint of cinnamon. I am looking forward to the others in the upcoming days.
When I got back from getting a new watch battery (one of my Spring Break goals!!!!), I was hungry. Lunch was a nice balance of veggies, chicken, and a quarter of a sweet potato.
Yes, I dipped my chicken and broccoli in yellow mustard. Don’t judge. It’s STRANGEbutGOOD.
In case you were wondering, I do have a shirt that says this…
My family can attest to the fact that I have a slight obsession.
As the day went on, I snacked on a carrot and some apple chips that I made.. and if I must say so, tasted FABULOUS! I will share the recipe soon.
Dinner rolled around..about 6:45 and I had..
3/4 chicken breast with a side of cabbage, broccoli, and mushrooms.. topped with red pepper flakes–mm mm good!
Night time snack was an oldie but a goodie! Blueberry Protein Fluff–served atop a rice cake. A delicious way to end the night..
