Good Morning! Happy Hump Day Everyone! I hope you’ve been having a great week!

I have a busy day ahead of me, but I wanted to pop in and quickly share a day of my eats from yesterday! I worked 6-1 then got a workout in before heading to relax for the evening. I thought this would be a good post to share so you have a look at what I eat during a day that I work and workout.

Thanks for creating the link up Jenn! Arman is hosting the WIAW party this week so you can head his way for more food posts!

And without further ado, onto the food!

What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday

Working at 6 in the morning means that I have to get up at 4 and leave by 5:15 at the latest (I live about a half hour away). To get my day started, I had a cup of black coffee (Christmas mug optional).12665877_10157151864060377_1437315545_nFor breakfast, I made my usual egg white scramble with peppers and zucchini topped with ketchup and a piece of toast with a runny egg!12660339_10157151864105377_2122468132_nI took my break shortly after 9 and dug into one of my prepped spaghetti squash containers. There’s ground turkey, tomato basil pasta sauce, broccoli, red pepper, spaghetti squash and a Laughing Cow cheese wedge!12660374_10157151864200377_260746295_nAfter work, I had a couple kiwis before hitting a quad workout. I hit a PR on back squats of 100 pounds for 4 reps! I know that’s not the heaviest, but I’ve been working hard at getting my form right before going heavier. 12650371_10157151864145377_730746485_nI had my usual protein shake on my way home from the gym. I think I’ve reused this picture like 4 times now because I always drink it way too fast to remember to snap a new picture. 12583772_10157104173835377_228671283_nAbout an hour after my shake, I dug into my favourite post workout carb source: oats! Yesterday I made pumpkin egg white oats topped with blueberries and butter!12647915_10157151864245377_1253253336_nFor supper, I heated up another one of my pre-made meals. This time it was chicken, green beans, and purple sweet potato. 12660291_10157151864295377_536558003_nMy evening snack before I crashed around 8 was a piece of toast with peanut butter and butter! So simple, but so good!12674281_10157151864340377_614342697_nThose were my eats from yesterday! I’m off to go get my stuff together for today and head into town. I have a workout on my mind then my first PT session followed by work 2-9!

I hope you have a fantastic day!

How do you take you eggs?

Favourite oat combo?

Good Morning! Happy Hump Day! I hope you’ve been having a great week!

I want to apologize ahead of time if this post doesn’t make sense, I’m currently typing it up on Tuesday night at 7 and I’ve been up since 4 in the morning! I was FaceTiming with Matthias earlier and wasn’t making any sense so I’m curious to see how this turns out!

Although I’m typing this up on Tuesday, I’ll be posting it on Wednesday for What I Ate Wednesday! I love having a place to share what I ate in a day without judgement. Jenn created this link up so that bloggers could celebrate eating and not have to worry about judgment, comparison, restriction, or guilt!

What I Ate Wednesday Monday

I was off from the gym on Monday, but was helping my mom with a couple houses before heading to my alma mater to sell one of Matthias’ textbooks. Knowing I had to get up at 4 on Tuesday, I wanted to get up close to that time so it wasn’t completely awful! I ended up getting up around 5 and started writing my weekend recap post while drinking a cup of coffee. I ended up making it to the gym around 6:45 and powered through a quick 45 minute back and biceps workout before my mom picked me up around 8.

I had my usual protein shake after my workout then got to work with my mom. I hadn’t planned to go so long without real food, but I ended up waiting 3 hours until after we were done working. I dug into some cinnamon oatmeal with blueberries and butter. 12650406_10157127076775377_1001666316_nShortly after that, I snacked on some chicken. Totally boring, but I really enjoy it!12606834_10157127079630377_409013984_nAfter selling the textbook, we headed back home. As we were driving home, I snacked on the same Roasted Garlic crackers that were in last week’s Friday Favourites with deli turkey meat and a Wholly Guacamole Mini!12625601_10157127076645377_104106261_nLater on, for supper, I reheated some prepped spaghetti squash, sauce, and broccoli!12625956_10157127079440377_1559373984_nMy dessert on Monday was very delicious! I made cinnamon french toast topped with Nuts ‘N More Salted Caramel Peanut Butter and some Walden Farms syrup! It was the best way to end the day!12596516_10157127079265377_1789332549_nI also had two mini Hershey chocolates, one was milk chocolate and the other was special dark!12606967_10157127079700377_267906263_n

Good Morning! How has your week been going so far?

Before I share what I ate earlier this week, I wanted to apologize. I’ve been absent more than I would like on here. Work has been kicking my butt and I’m way more tired than I thought I would be. I have Friday and Saturday off this week so I’m hoping to figure out a schedule and maybe get some posts written ahead of time! If anyone has any tips, I’m all ears!

My favourite day of the week is here! I don’t know, but I absolutely love seeing what other people have been eating! Luckily, What I Ate Wednesday is around to fill this nosiness of mine! Thanks for creating this link up Jenn!

What I Ate Wednesday Saturday

I had to work the opening shift on Saturday this past weekend for the first time! This meant my hours were 6:45-1:30. That’s right, 6:45 in the morning! I’m happy I haven’t had to work an opening shift during the week since that shift starts at 4:45! Anyways, I was up pretty early on Saturday so I could have a good breakfast before leaving for work.

I made an egg/egg white scramble with spinach, zucchini, and red peppers. I also had some strawberries and a piece of toast with raspberry jam! It was one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in awhile!

12571078_10157104173915377_1205797293_nOn my break at work, I dug into my prepped meal which was chicken, broccoli and a Laughing Cow wedge! I’ve been eating this the past few days at work and I absolutely love it!12606839_10157104174000377_348435468_nAfter my shift was over, I hit a quick back and biceps workout before heading home. On my drive, I drank a protein shake made with chocolate peanut butter protein powder!12583772_10157104173835377_228671283_nAfter a quick shower, I was sitting down to eat supper. My mom made steak, potatoes, and carrots. I forget what she does to the steak, but it’s one of my favourite ways to eat it.12570941_10157104173645377_1178891296_nThis was followed by a couple blueberry muffins that my mom also made! The streusel on top is my favourite!12607120_10157104174745377_1035295968_nThe rest of the evening was spent sitting on the couch watching a movie with a bowl of protein ice cream! I topped it with a couple of thin mints and some Annie’s chocolate bunny grahams. It was really tasty!12575828_10157104173785377_1840540271_nThose were my eats from Saturday! I hope you have a great Wednesday!

What’s your favourite kind of muffin?

Good Morning! How is your week going?

We’re in the middle of a snowstorm here so the drive into town later is going to be a lot of fun. I don’t mind the snow, but hate driving in it!

Before I head out to brave the winter, I wanted to pop in to share what I ate yesterday. These are my favourite posts to read and to write so I hope you enjoy it! As always, a big thanks to Jenn for beginning this link up and letting me be nosy!

What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday

I started my day off much like last week’s WIAW only I added a sliced banana to it! The picture is recycled from last week, but seriously, you need to try this peanut butter! I have been loving it!12498498_10157058057220377_2091143518_nI was in the mood to bake yesterday so I spent an hour or two experimenting with a new recipe to no success. Isn’t that the worst! I’ll still eat it, but I had really high hopes for it.While it was baking, I whipped up my lunch. It was three eggs sunny side up with red pepper, spinach, and a Laughing Cow wedge. 12540325_10157081032495377_1723667510_nThe afternoon was spent snacking on pretty much anything that didn’t have any nutritional value. I had some of my “creation” that became a little better with peanut butter, some of my mom’s butterscotch peanut butter balls, and French Toast Crunch.

Supper time came before I knew it so I sat down to eat what my mom made for us. I realized this also looks similar to last week’s WIAW too. There was chicken stir fry and some rice with veggies. 12540028_10157081032830377_646466226_nI’m typing this up a little early, but when I’m done, I’m going to go grab a snack. I haven’t decided on what yet, but I have a feeling it’s going to have some more sugar because I definitely haven’t had enough of that today 🙈🙊

Anyways, that’s all from me today! I hope you have a great Wednesday!

Do you like snow?

What was your last baking fail?

Good Morning! How is your week going?

I’m going to be helping my mom out this morning before going to my first training shift! I’m super nervous, but also excited! My supervisor seems really nice and welcoming!

Anyways, before I head off to clean a couple houses, I wanted to share with you what I ate on Monday! As always, a big thank you to Jenn for creating this link up!

What I Ate Wednesday Monday

Before heading to the gym, I had a piece of toast with Nuts ‘N More Salted Caramel peanut butter! This may be my new favourite nut butter!12498498_10157058057220377_2091143518_nFollowing the gym and a shower, I made something that doesn’t look like much, but is very tasty! Underneath a runny egg, I stirred ketchup and a Laughing Cow wedge into ground chicken. It was quick, but very tasty!12506653_10157058057310377_1812833732_nA little while later, I went to my sister’s to hang out with her and her girlfriend. While I was there I had a few cinnamon rolls. There’s two pictured here, but I had another two afterwards.12483690_10157058057375377_445276028_nI ended up staying for supper and we had honey garlic chicken stir fry. It was really filling!12506766_10157058057470377_911541229_nAfter supper, I headed back home. I had a bowl of ice cream later on because you can’t watch The Bachelor without it. Did anyone else watch? I already have a couple favourites and a couple not so favourites! (sorry for the bad quality picture)12498615_10157058057520377_2140177045_nI also ended up having some Pizza Goldfish Crackers!12468218_10157058057685377_726834667_nThose were my eats from Monday!

Good Morning! How is it already Wednesday!? And how is New Years Eve tomorrow night!?

I’m jumping on the bandwagon in saying this, but 2015 just flew right by! I’ve been thinking a lot the past few days about what I would like to accomplish in 2016 and writing down my goals. I’ll be sharing those tomorrow and I’m looking forward to having them out in the world as I find it helps with accountability.

However, it’s Wednesday which means I get to share with you a day of my eats! This time, it is from Monday! As always, a big thank you to Jenn for creating this link up! Let’s get to the food!

What I Ate Wednesday Monday

For breakfast, I had kamut puffs with blackberries and almond milk. I have been loving kamut puffs lately, they don’t really taste of much, but I like the crunch that they have!12463735_10157034586435377_1972403616_nA little while later before heading to the gym, I had a kinder egg surprise from Christmas. I’ve been trying to save them, but I only have one left 😑12435885_10157034586455377_1152384123_nI had a really great, sweaty workout on Monday so after getting home, I immediately jumped in the shower. My post workout meal was a little weird, but it tasted really good. I had ground chicken, green beans and scrambled egg whites/egg. All topped with ketchup of course!12463677_10157034586510377_1782080836_nI had breakfast for dinner and made protein waffles! I used my new chocolate peanut butter protein. I also topped them with some syrup and salted caramel peanut butter! 12443181_10157034586550377_164626752_nA little while later, I snacked on some yogurt and blueberries!12434423_10157034586540377_15047121_nFinally, while watching Big Bang Theory, I had some of my hoof prints frozen yogurt with caramel sauce.12459873_10157034586590377_150651120_nIt was a great day of eats! Have a great Wednesday!

Good Morning! Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

I can’t believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve and the day after is Christmas! I’ve been watching all of the Christmas movies before they aren’t on anymore!

It’s Wednesday so it’s time to share what I put into my body yesterday! Jenn started this baby as a place for people to share a sneak peek into their eating. This is done without comparison, guilt, judgement, or restriction. This is one of my favourite link ups so I owe a big thank you to Jenn for creating it!

Now onto the food!

What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday

Even though it snowed throughout the night, I was craving something cold after a sweaty workout. I made a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Banana Smoothie Bowl! I used up the last of my PEScience Select protein with this and I’m very sad about that. This was delicious though! I didn’t even add any toppings because I was so hungry.12399161_10157010081875377_159561193_nAfter inhaling the smoothie bowl, I headed out to run a few errands. I got home a few hours later and started thinking about what I would eat next. I decided on an egg white and egg omelette with red peppers and deli turkey meat. I also added ketchup on top which is a new favourite with eggs. I never used to like, but now I need to have it when I have eggs!12399241_10157010082170377_1415651737_nI spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning until I found my self with a rumbling stomach. I made a really simple burrito bowl that lacked salsa and guac, but it was still pretty tasty. I used brown rice, ground chicken with taco seasoning, green peppers, yellow peppers, cheese, and some plain Greek yogurt.12421611_10157010081980377_1347907645_nI finished my night off with a bowl of Hoof Prints frozen yogurt with caramel sauce and two Thin Mints! Fun fact: besides Thin Mints, I’ve only ever had the regular vanilla and chocolate Girl Guide cookies. Thin Mints are definitely my favourite though!1060965_10157010082090377_292201160_nI hope you have a great day!

Do you need to have any condiments with your eggs?

What’s your favourite kind of Girl Guide cookies?
