How fast does time fly?! Seriously, I swear I just wrote last week’s What I Ate Wednesday post. Before you know it, it’ll be Christmas! Yikes. Scary thought.
Thank you to Jenn for hosting the weekly WIAW party, and coming up with a theme this month that includes daily exercise!
Here’s what happened in my world on Monday. Breakfast:
I had a bowl of egg white oats (2 egg whites, 1/2 cup of oats). I stirred in one full scoop of chocolate protein powder and topped it with mango pieces and berries. This is a repeat offender, although a new picture. It never disappoints … and is so full of protein I’m satisfied for longer!
I wasn’t able to get groceries until after work, so when I stopped by home during my lunch break, I needed to get creative. I
baked microwaved a sweet potato and ate it alongside a lean turkey sausage from M & M’s and a generous heap of edamame. I stirred it all together, and was quite impressed with the result. And so colorful!
By the time I hauled all of my groceries up to my apartment Monday night, I was sweating my face off. I didn’t want anything too difficult … and I didn’t want anything too hot. Raw veggies was obviously the answer, and so was a mahi mahi burger (a new purchase!). I paired it with plain Greek yogurt, raspberries, and Love Crunch Dark Chocolate & Red Berry granola. That was another new purchase (can anyone tell I started my Costco membership this week?) and I’M IN LOVE. Holy crow. Portioning that stuff out is going to be totally necessary, so I don’t eat the whole bag in one sitting.
Since July’s WIAW theme includes workouts, I suppose it’s time to share mine! Other than hauling all of my groceries up eight flights of stairs to my apartment (I have an elevator but chose the stairs), I also hit the gym after supper. I ran a mile and a half (on a level 1 incline, just for an extra challenge) and then did an incredibly hilly 4 mile bike ride on a stationary bike. My legs were sore yesterday. Love that feeling!
Have an excellent day, ladies and gents! Thanks again Jenn for hosting this wonderful partayyyyy!
