Due to school and all, I’ve realized I probably will only blog once a day. But that’s okay!
Today is What I Ate Wednesday! I saw this on Chelsey’s blog and Courtney’s blog. I think it’s a really cool idea for Wednesday. So here I go:
I made a more simple green smoothie. I only put lots and lots of spinach, 1 banana, Spirulina powder, flax seed, dry organic oats, all natural and plain whey protein powder, and water to get everything going. I actually added a little stevia to it to sweeten up as well. And I understand that green smoothies are not the prettiest thing in the world…but they sure do taste good if you make them right.
For the past two days, I have been craving a simple, cheese and turkey quesadilla. So that’s what I’ve been making and wrapping it in foil. Also, eating my veggies and hummus along with it. Delicious! And sorry about the bad photo. This one was taken on my phone
When I got home, I had to make a quick snack because I had an appointment on the phone which I was super excited for!
So, I had leftover cooked quinoa from dinner the other night. I put quinoa, almond milk, cinnamon, stevia, and some frozen berries all together. It sort of tasted like a cereal. But healthy, of course! Definitely a must try! I actually have a recipe for crunchy quinoa cereal. I need to make that soon and post the recipe!
(Didn’t take a pic due to being lazy with the camera and in a hurry at the same time)
Around 4:00 P.M., my mom and I headed out to run! I was kind of liking the cold weather (43 degrees? Yes, please). So I got in three miles! But my GPS didn’t start till .15 later. So ya gotta add that on. I promise, I did 3 miles! And yesterday I did 4 miles!
By the way, I’ve been easing off my running a little due to some aching pain in my foot. It really started after my 14 mile long-run, so I may have strained it or something of that sort.
I also got in my barbell workout again but not as many mountain climbers! How I did it was: 15 barbell squats, 6 barbell lunges each leg, then 20 deadlifts. Then after each set I did 30 mountain climbers. But I added an extra 10 on my last set! 100 mountain climbers, whoop, whoop!
And I got in 2 rounds of Karena’s leg workout. It is part of the #LoveYourBody series! Which is really awesome. Check it out: http://toneitup.com/blog.php?L-VE-Your-Body-Series-5657
Okay, this salad was the best! It was full of vegetables!
In the Salad:
- Sliced baby carrots
- Bell pepper
- Chopped apple
- Sliced boiled eggs
- Chopped lettuce
Dressing: 2-3 TBSP of balsamic vinegar and 1/2 TBSP of spicy brown mustard. Whisk and pour over salad. Delish! And much healthier : )
*A couple of random things I ate: Some Crunchmaster gluten free crackers, a couple of pecans with my coffee, I tried a few chips (didn’t like them BTW), half an apple, a little bit of almond butter.
And I actually just had a few sweet potato fries. OMG yum. <–Was that even a sentence? No, but it still deserves a period.
I’m going to go study and drink some chamomile tea now before bed.
Two more days and it will be Friday! Woo!
Question of the Day:
What’s something you’ve been craving lately?
Do you think sweet potato fries are better than regular fries?
