What I Ate Wednesday +Week in Review of Workouts

Been a bit since I've written one of these. Been forgetting to photograph most of what I've been eating...probably because it all isn't healthy for me! ha!

I have been unmotivated to workout. I was doing P90X2 and it just wasn't challenging enough for me so I have gone back and am doing a round of Insanity with one day a week of some P90X upper body work. I will also do one to two days a week of running anywhere from 1-3 miles. Just sort runs but enough to keep my muscles long and stretched out.

Last Wednesday: PIYO Sweat
Thursday: PIYO Strength Intervals
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Bike ride and walk
Sunday: Rest
Monday: Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Tuesday: Cardio Power and Resistance + a nice long walk downtown to see a church and grab some fresh juice and tea at La Place at the top of the library
Today: Bike ride to my bookclub, one mile run, and Insanity Cardio Recovery

I am feeling great so far this week. I forgot how awesome this programme is and how moving at a high intensity really gets my body feeling good and trim so quickly. Of course, I am pairing it with super healthy eating. I have found gluten and alcohol just make me really tired so I have completely cut alcohol out and I am eating more and more gluten free, just having a few items that are low on the gluten scale.

So, without further ado...

Morning Coffee


I didn't actually eat the pumpkins but I couldn't resist making the smiley face ;)

Post Workout Breakfast

Eggs with tomato, onion, cheese, and pepper! YUM!

Tuna salad with balsamic, apples, onions, and cheese

Best snack ever: 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1T chia seeds, 2T raw cacao powder, 1T wheat grass powder, blend!

Chicken burgers over lettuce and acorn squash with caramelized onion.

Bonus dinner from Tuesday:

I took some leftover chili I had in the freezer and warmed it up while I roasted a small pumpkin. Then split the pumpkin in half and scooped out the seeds (save them and roast them excellent when the seeds have already been steamed), and put the warmed chili in and top with a little cheese...it was so amazing!

So, that is it for me this week, folks! What has been your favorite meal this week?


  1. YUM that SALAD!!! Love all the squash as well - you really can't go wrong!! Looks like an awesome day of eats!

  2. Oh man, that chia chocolate snack looks amazing. I'm loving chia lately.
