What I Ate Wednesday 7/31

What I Ate Wednesday: Fun Food & Fitness

Hi all! Good morning to ya and happy What I Ate Wednesday! (Haven’t done one of these in months!) And can you believe it’s the last day of July?!

Thanks Jenn for always hosting! Even though I’ve hardly done any of these, I always enjoy reading other bloggers’ WIAW posts!

I love Brittany’s WIAWs, don’t know why. She must be cool or something

The above picture pretty much sums up my last few days; the reason I haven’t blogged the past two days.

Since I am not working right this moment, I’m trying to spend some time doing things out of the house, running, and tanning…which ends up taking up most of my day and I end up not opening my laptop. (Which I need a new one, by the way!)

Okay, enough of that, let’s get to WIAW!!

I started my day off with a delicious green protein smoothie! It was so tasty, and if you head over to my Instagram, you will see the recipe!

A couple hours later, I headed to JCP to try on some bathing suits…which I got on MEGA sale. I feel awesome.

When I got home, I was more than hungry, but I knew we were having an early dinner in about 3 hours, so I made a spinach banana almond butter wrap. Please do not make a gross face until you try it.

(Using recycled photos because I didn’t take time to take a picture of it because…well, I was hungry!)

I used these tortillas

Then I spread almond butter on one sideDSC09788

Added a banana and rolled it up. (Ignore the Chia seeds)IMG_20130510_055846

These wraps are very mild tasting so you can’t even tell they are a spinach wrap! Score!

A little while later, after a nice cup of coffee…

We had TACO SALAD!!!

I just really love taco salad. We have it every couple of weeks and it’s just so good. I don’t usually eat a lot of cheese, but taco night, I do eat it! So this meal was about 90% clean, full of lettuce and healthy veggies, and NON-GMO gluten free corn chips!

I may or may not have eaten some of these bad boys…

Time to head to the track for a hard workout!

Thanks to my instagram friends for cheering me on!

Hayls!

    • 4X1000m repeats with jogs in between each one
    • 1 lap cooldown

For post workout, I just ate a chocolate cookie dough quest bar, baked!

If you haven’t tried a baked Quest Bar yet, you are missing out! Better than a chocolate chip cookie out of the oven. NOT KIDDING!!!!

Have a great day!

1. I’m really sore from Tuesday’s leg workout

2. I found this new magazine company called Southern Weddings Magazine and I am obsessed! It’s owned by a few women in NC and its just so cool!

I love weddings and I love southern weddings even more! So, this magazine will be fun to look through

But anyway, their blog is so cute! I want to talk to the person who is over it

3. I love frozen blueberries! Stick them in the microwave for 10 seconds, and they are perfect!

10. Last night, as I was finishing my workout…

My sister was screaming, “No, no, no!” So I obviously dashed up stairs (which is not the easiest thing when you were thinking about crashing on your yoga mat all night because you were so tired).

The whole kitchen was smoky

She burned QUINOA!

QUINOA!

Well, we opened all the windows and doors trying to air it out (it smelled horrible! WARNING: DO NOT burn Quinoa!)

After a few minutes, we closed the doors and I was going to go take a shower. Well, as soon as I’m about to, the smoke alarm GOES off.

Are you kidding me?

No.

I had to throw on clothes, grab my keys and purse and go find my parents. They were running down the other end of the neighborhood. So I had to find them and pick them up. Swish back home and my dad was the only one who knew how to turn off the smoke alarm.

We did however fix everything. Quite an eventful night!Thankful there was no fire haha :0
