What I Ate Wednesday

It’s been a while since I wrote a What I Ate Wednesday post so I thought it was time for another one.

The winter has not been kind to my waistline.  My jeans are a bit too snug for comfort so I have really been trying to watch what I eat.  Recording everything I eat to share with you guys certainly helps with that :)

I have really been working on getting back into a regular exercise routine as well.  I have a 10K planned for the beginning of June and a half marathon for the end of Sept so I have gotten back into running 3-4 times a week.  I have also been trying to do cross-training (usually in the form of a Jillian Michaels DVD) 3 times a week.  I really need to work on the core strength after 3 babies!

Here is Tuesday’s day of eats:


Oatmeal with unsweetened almond milk, berries (from frozen) and a spoonful of PB.  I am completely out of Flaxseed  and Chia Seeds



A yummy smashed chickpea and avocado sandwich with cucumber, tomato, and spinach.



Black bean and potato nacho plate

Black Bean and Potato Nacho Plate


I loved this dinner.  It will definitely be on our menu again!


snack 1

I made some oatmeal cookies from The Happy Herbivore Cookbook
And of course I had to sample one.

Unpictured Snack:  Smoothie

While Little Man was napping and G was playing I did Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30  which kicked my butt!

After the workout I treated myself to a chocolate banana date smoothie. I used unsweetened almond milk, cocoa powder, frozen bananas, and dates. Delicious! I was going to add some spinach but forgot.
