WIAW #20

Another Wednesday and another glance into what I ate throughout yesterday!!

You would think by now I would be used to taking photos of my food but I cannot tell you how many times I had to stop mid-bite, put the food down and grab the camera.

All I know is I couldn’t get my food down fast enough yesterday. Why?

1. It was REALLY good!

2. HIIT first thing in the morning apparently leaves me starving the rest of the day!!!

I cannot tell you how many times I have told my husband (and myself) that I am going to get up early and head to the gym before he goes to work. Just as many times as I have told him it is going to happen, is exactly how many times it hasn’t happened. I just haven’t been able to drag myself out of bed at 5am and head to the gym.

Until today that is!!! One of my excuses was that I was scared to workout all by my lonesome in the gym while it was still dark outside. No worries there. The place was packed!!! Seriously, I had NO idea how many people prefer to get up while the rest of the world is sleeping and sweat it out. It felt pretty awesome to be included in that group!!!

Now I am not going to get all crazy and do it every day of the week or anything. This girl is going to have to work her way up to that!! For now, I will stick with one early am session and gradually increase it to two. Two is my limit though. I need my sleep!!

Alrighty now……..moving on to that food I couldn’t get enough of!!!

Breakfast: This happened pretty early in the morning. I got home from the gym at 6am, had my coffee and then wolfed down this delicious bowl of oats by 6:30. So good!!

Snack: I am trying to back off of the processed foods but I kind of failed at that yesterday. I couldn’t help myself. But hey, they are called Skinny Sticks. I did practice self control. I had a handful and was done. 😉

Lunch: Simple but tasty. I wasn’t in the mood to cook and I didn’t have anything that was readily available(without cooking) so I settled on a yogurt bowl and carrots with a side of hummus.

Snack: Pink Lady apple sprinkled with cinnamon and a Babybel cheese. Oh my, these little things are AMAZING!!! Thank goodness I got a huge bag of them from Costco. Sadly, my kids like them just as much as I do so even though it was a pretty big bag, I don’t see them lasting long around here long.

Dinner: I saved the BEST for LAST!!! I stuck two sirloin steaks, a bell pepper and onion in the crock pot along with fajita seasoning earlier in the day. 6 hours later and I had the most delicious beef fajitas ever. Gosh, I LOVE this recipe. If you are a fan of fajitas, I highly recommend giving these a shot!!

I promise, it tastes sooooo much better than it looks. The lighting was awful when I took this picture!!!

And now, it is time to get my boy off to school and hit the gym again. I am meeting my friend, Brandi for lunch and we are having some Southern style home cookin’. It may not be the best for my waist but I know my mouth won’t complain!!!


Favorite time of the day to workout?

Do you eat your apples sliced or do you eat them whole?

I used to eat them whole but since my kids require theirs to be sliced, I have started doing it for myself as well.

Favorite Crock Pot meal?

  1. If I had it my way, I’d work out a noon every single day. But, that’s not very time effective or realistic! I definitely don’t think I could get to the gym by 5am… I hate working out that early! I’m impressed that you managed that. :).

  2. I love working out early in the morning (4:30 am, baby!). It’s the best way to start the day, in my opinion. Funny about the apple . . . I think it’s a “luxury” to slice and sprinkle cinnamon on my apple at home on the weekends. During the week, I bring an apple to work for a snack. I eat it between teaching classes, so no time to slice and plate. 🙂

  3. Awesome job with the early workout!
    I just bought those babybel cheeses for the first time and was wondering how I should eat them (I thought they were speadable). Good idea with the apple – Im going to try that! I always slice my apples.

  4. Way to bust out your workout super early! I will only eat my apples sliced.

  5. Hollly cow you are done working out by 6am?? go you!! That fajita looks awesome!

  6. Oatmeal is the best breakfast 🙂
