Hello! Sorry for not posting Monday, I had just finished working 5 days in a row and was beat. I spent the day relaxing, getting life insurance, and going for wings with some friends. How has your week been? I’ve been enjoying the last two days off and am back to work for 3 starting today. I’m looking forward to playing in a field hockey tournament this weekend so I’m hoping the rest of the week goes quickly!
Anyways, today is Wednesday which means another What I Ate Wednesday! As always a huge thank you to Jenn for this link up! Let’s get into it!
What I Ate
Pre-workout: caramel corn rice cake with peanut butter and some blueberriesPost-workout: Quest cookies (I baked a Cookies and Creme Quest bar that I cut into little pieces, this was eaten while I did my grocery shopping)Snack #1: so while I was at Walmart, I may have picked up poptarts for the first time in years! I picked up chocolate chip cookie dough and cookies and creme. When I got home I tried one of the cookie dough ones.Snack #2: during my meal prepping I was craving chocolate hard so I made one of my Beltsander brownies that I topped with peanut butter and one of the cookies and creme poptarts (sorry for the blurry pic, I was a little excited to dive into it)
Snack #3: two pieces of brown bread with butterSupper: spaghetti squash, sauce, chicken, broccoli, and green beansDessert: whopper froyo and chocolate proyo topped with mini m&ms, cookie dough, oreo, caramel and nutella (fun fact: this was taken using the front camera on my iPhone since my back camera is messed up/not working, that’s why it’s only half of it)
As you can see, I definitely gave into my cravings today. I usually stick to my macros on the days I work and my days off are kind of hit or miss. I like to live a little so I know a day like this isn’t going to hurt me. Some people may feel guilty for eating things that I did today, but I don’t. Should I have eaten all of it? Probably not. I probably should have chosen more foods that would help my body, but so what. If anything, the extra carbs I ate today will help fuel my workout tomorrow morning. For the rest of the week, I’ll be eating more nutrient dense foods so that my body is well fueled for this weekend.
Hope everyone enjoys their Hump Day and the rest of the week! I’d love to hear what you ate and if you’ve ever had a day like I had. Did it make you feel guilty? Did you feel like you had to run or workout harder the next day?
