A Day of Clean Eats

I’m jumping right into What I Ate Wednesday today, so thanks to Jenn for hosting! And let’s get the ball rollin’!

Peas and Crayons

As a foodie and someone who’s gotta run early, breakfast is the first thing on my mind when I wake up. The night before, I washed and chopped up a lot of celery that needed to be juiced so, I quickly grabbed some greens and a couple of carrots to add to the celery. It was delicious!


About 20 minutes later, I grabbed some boiled eggs (prepped the night before) and a handful of Cascadian Farm cereal. I stayed full for hours, it seemed. Eating good proteins, carbs, and having energizing juice in the morning really keeps me going.


After breakfast, I went running 3.25 miles. Warmed up nice and easy the first 2 miles and then 6 crazy hill repeats, then ran till I got home!

Then I completed 3 rounds of that arm workout!

Yep, super sore this morning…

WOD: 2 miles at 9:30/mile pace, 20 minute free motion cross cable workout (target quads, back and arms), 9 min mile, 30 push-ups. Lacking energy, glad it's over.


Lunch was kind of too early for me, so I ended up not eating any of those chickpeas or the avocado. It just looked unappetizing as soon as I sat down to eat.


So I replaced the chickpeas and avocado with a baked quest bar because…who wouldn’t?


And I tried to take a decent picture of my dinner, but it was rainy outside and the lighting just sucked…so yeah, this is what you get stuck with.


Organic Whole Wheat pasta, meat sauce, lots of fresh basil, and baked parmesan artichokes!


Alright, you guys! That’s about it!

Question timeeeee:

  • What did you have for breakfast yesterday?
  • What do you like eating with your pasta?
  • What was your workout yesterday?

WIAW 7/9 + Quest Bar Giveaway {CLOSED}

Happy What I Ate Wednesday, foodies and readers!

It’s funny to me how quickly WIAW comes around…but hey, it’s completely fine with me because it might be my favorite day. So, thanks to Jenn for hosting!

Peas and Crayons

So, last night I had the pleasure of running some crazy trails at Red Mountain Park with Alabama Outdoors, and let me tell you. Trails are growing on me. I need more! The only problem with that, is that all the nearest trails are between 20-30 minutes from my house. I did see a tepee at Red Mountain Park…I could possibly move in? Yes? Okay, maybe not such a good idea. Alright, moving on!

Yesterday, if you read my post, I was having a difficult time finding something to eat for breakfast because there were NO bananas! Almost everything I eat for breakfast has a banana in it and I really wanted a banana. So, I ended up just eating like 1/2 cup of coconut chia granola cereal with almond milk and some pecans (with a sad face).


Speaking of pecans, you know you’re supposed to soak them? We’ve been soaking our pecans lately and let me tell you, they taste way better.

Tuna Salad

For lunch, I had tuna salad (posted the recipe on instagram), organic blue corn chips, and 1/2 Fuji apple that tasted SO GOOD.

From lunch and until 4:30, I was in the kitchen baking! I made my Paleo Coconut Flour Cupcakes but I added more liquid and brown rice flour to the recipe to thin out and create more batter so I could get more cupcakes! Also, I added some chocolate chips and my lemon vanilla icing<—recipe also on my instagram!

By 5:45, I was at the park and ready to run trails. We didn’t get through until 7 and we stayed a while and talked. Then when we got home which was about 8:00 p.m., food was not on my mind. I don’t know about you, but eating a meal at 8:00 at night, is not very fun to me. So, I ate nothing. Boo me. Yeah, whatever. I survived! I’m ready to devour the whole kitchen. Okay, kidding. That would be rude.

But, you know what would have been good last night? A quest bar!

Which leads me to…THE GIVEAWAY!

I’m so happy that Quest Nutrition wanted to team up with me to let me give 2 of my readers a chance to both win a 16 bar sampler pack!









I’ll have the winners on Friday!

Have a great day everyone!

WIAW 9/11

Must first acknowledge those who lost their lives 12 years ago on this day.

I was 6 years old, wasn’t exactly sure what was going on…but I remember the TV had the news on for days.

Its always bothered me, the event, why and how people can do that. I will never understand and hope it won’t happen again.


Yesterday was a great day of eats!

I started my morning off with a yummy Quinoa Crunch Bowl (you might have seen the picture on my instagram)

After a lot of job searching and what not, I finally wrote down my workout and I was so excited to try it out because I knew it was going to be an epic one!

I promised to share the workout here on my instagram, so here it is!

Cardio Functional Workout

And if you don’t know how to do any of the exercises…

  • Burpee with Knee to Elbow (or tummy tuck)


Perform a burpee, while in the plank position, bring left knee to left elbow and right knee to right elbow!

  • Side Plank Hug to Open Chest Fly with dumbbell

While in this position, swing arm under your body…like this –>


Counts as 1 rep! Do 10!

  • Double Pop Squats! So simple, you pulse TWO squats and then jump like you would with a jump squat. Click here and fast forward to 1:50
  • Plank Hops

After those three rounds, I hit my BACK, BICEPS, AND SHOULDERS

Post workout/Lunch was a Chocolate Brownie Quest Bar

(Quest Bar review coming soon!)

If you are wondering why I look like I want to smile but trying not to…its because I have Quest Bar in my mouth. And it tasted fantastic! So I’m obviously, weirdly happy.

Dinner was a good one…if you saw my Instagram pic, you probably know how much I am in love with Beet and Feta Sandwiches now. Words can not even describe.

(Recipe on this later)

I was very satisfied after this sandwich. Definitely making these suckers again!

Thanks Jenn for always hosting WIAW!

And don’t forget to enter my giveaway for the Sweaty Bands Headband! Last day!
