WIAW – The Fitnessista


Sharing an entire day of eats from begin to end. 

Hey hey! Completely happy humpday! What’s happening this morning? I’ve 1:1 calls all morning and getting a podcast episode edited and able to go. I hope you have got a beautiful day forward.

For right this moment’s put up, I believed I’d share a WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) because it’s been some time. I at all times love getting wholesome meal inspiration from buddies, so I wish to share these posts for an concept of what a typical day of eats seems like. I can perceive why these kinds of posts will not be useful for everybody (sharing my ideas on that right here!) however I attempted some a few new recipes and am excited to share them with ya.

Right here’s what a full day of latest eats seemed like from begin to end! (I took these pics a few weeks in the past however am simply sharing them now! The children weren’t at camp this specific week, so I used to be juggling work stuff in between ensuring they had been blissful, fed, and entertained. The Pilot was additionally out of city for work so I used to be doing the solo parenting factor. I additionally allow them to watch some further TV whereas I bought issues finished, let’s be actual.)

8:20am

I slept in till 8 (summer time, I really like youuuuuuuuuuuu) after which began my day with a big glass of water with Sakara Magnificence drops (minerals which can be utterly tasteless. I like including these to my water since I filter it with the Berkey, and my stress degree is a bit increased recently, which might deplete minerals)

Because it was a busy morning work-wise, I had a Bulletproof bar and a cup of espresso (decaf with uncooked milk, Stevia, and collagen), probiotics/digestive enzymes from Sakara and made the children a fast breakfast. I sat on the kitchen desk with my laptop and helped the children whereas they labored on their summer time packets.

10:15am

Watered the vegetation and had the remainder of my breakfast:

2 scrambled eggs, 2 slices of turkey bacon, and a reheated Tremendous Hero muffin from this cookbook. These muffins are SO good and the children liked serving to me make them. At any time when we make breakfast staples, I attempt to make a double batch and freeze them for fast choices.

I sat by the pool writing whereas the children swam, hopped in for a bit to chill off and play, and took two 1:1 teaching calls upstairs whereas the children dried off and ate their lunch.

1:30 pm: Lunch

Chopped rooster salad with inexperienced olives, artichokes, spinach, Primal Kitchen Goddess dressing, a bowl of blueberries, and a Sakara inexperienced smoothie

(My fave veggie hack = the Poshi packs from Thrive Market. They’re excellent for including to salads, scrambles, and wraps.)

+ a mug of inexperienced tea whereas I completed free ends and logged out for the day.

I bought dinner into the Immediate Pot, and the children and I spent the remainder of the afternoon on the trampoline park (with a cease at DQ for cones for the ladies on the best way residence).

5:30pm: Dinner

That is considered one of our go-to soup combos each time somebody is feeling below the climate, or when a soup craving hits. Even when it’s 100+ levels right here, soup at all times sounds good to me. We every had it with a hunk of sourdough bread and the children liked it, too!

After dinner, we took Maisey for a brief stroll across the neighborhood. Caro selected to stay snoozing on the sofa.

8:30pm baked apples for all. The children and I needed slightly candy chunk after dinner, and all of us love this night snack. You simply chop an apple, microwave it in a bowl with cinnamon for about 2 minutes, and prime with peanut butter and/or chocolate chips. (On this case, it was chocolate peanut butter. SO good.) I additionally had a mug of heat almond milk with Organifi chocolate gold.

I showered the crew, we learn books, and I put them to mattress, and cranked out some final minute work: completed a weblog put up, drafted social media shout outs, edited a reel whereas listening to an IHP module. I learn just a few pages of a ebook (ending this one) earlier than crashing out at round 11:45.

What I favored about this present day:

I hit my protein aim, however most significantly: it was a day of filling and satisfying eats. The children loved this present day of meals, particularly the soup and the breakfast. (For lunch, they’d a deconstructed model of the salad and their breakfast was the identical + some strawberries and banana.) I used to be additionally happy with myself for having actual meals!! It may be troublesome to juggle work and the children throughout the day (which is why I normally signal them up for a minimum of half-day summer time camps or ask our babysitter to return over for just a few hours) as a result of I really feel stretched and like I’m at all times ignoring one thing or somebody.

On days like this, until I’ve prepped so much prematurely, I are inclined to have bites of issues in between duties and chores, or eat on the laptop or within the automotive. This specific day, I had rounded meals, sat right down to get pleasure from them, and I really feel fairly pumped about that.

What I might have modified:

I might have discovered a approach so as to add some veggies to breakfast to extend my servings only a bit. I additionally would have most popular to eat breakfast first as an alternative of the bar, however it was sufficient to carry me over till I might eat a full meal. Since I finished consuming meals on the laptop, I can’t do it anymore! It feels so a lot better to attend till I can sit down and really style the meals I’m consuming. 😉

What’s the perfect factor you ate yesterday? Something you’re presently loving or new cookbook faves?
