Happy Wednesday! I’m pretending today is Friday and it pretty much is for me since I am heading to North Carolina tomorrow to look at houses near Camp Lejeune. It’s not really going to be much of a vacation since I’ll be running around trying to see as many places as possible in 24 hours but I am a little excited to see the new place that we are going to be living in August. I’ve never been to this area of North Carolina before so I hope I like it!
Moving on, its time for What I Ate Wednesday! If you’re new to WIAW, head over to Peas and Crayons and check it out:
Yesterday was a pretty normal day of eating for me. I’m still sticking to the low-glycemic diet but I have to say I haven’t really noticed any changes in my body composition. I lost about 3 pounds in the first 3 weeks but over the past week-and-a-half I’ve gained almost all of it back, even though I’ve continued tracking my calories and sticking to the same diet. I don’t know what’s up, but I’m going to stick with the program and hope it all comes together in the end.
Breakfast – 9 a.m.
Breakfast was a bowl of steel cut oats made with skim milk and egg whites for some extra protein and a big scoop of almond butter, blueberries and cinnamon. I’m pretty sure I could eat oatmeal for breakfast every single day (I already do) and never get sick of it. I was somehow hungry again about 2 hours after breakfast yesterday so I had a small bowl of Kashi GoLean with skim milk for a little snack but forgot to take a picture. It didn’t look very exciting anyways so you’re not missing anything 🙂
Lunch – 1:30 p.m.
We had some leftover chicken from Monday night’s dinner so I cut it up into small pieces and mixed in a tablespoon of Trader Joe’s hummus dressing and some avocado to make a chicken salad.
I made a sandwich on Ezekial bread with some spinach. Delicious!
And for my sweet tooth, a big handful of cherries.
Snack – 4 p.m.
My gym just started holding Olympic weightlifting class on Tuesday evenings, so I knew I would need a snack before two hours of CrossFit and had a banana with almond butter. The Olympic lifting class was focused more on technique than lifting heavy weight, so it wasn’t like I was doing two high-intensity workouts in a row, but it was still really tough! Probably because I suck so badly at Olympic lifts. Practice makes perfect though, so I’m going to try to go to the class every Tuesday and Thursday.
Dinner – 7 p.m.
I picked up some Mahi Mahi burgers at Trader Joe’s and they were really good! I cooked them on the stove rather than the grill but they still tasted great. I had mine on a whole wheat bun with peach mango salsa, spinach and avocado on top. Yum!
I made a chickpea salad on the side by combining 1.5 cups of chickpeas, 1 cup diced tomatoes, 1/2 cup diced cucumbers, 1/2 cup diced onions and 1/2 cup feta cheese. This made a huge bowl that served both me and Brian with enough for leftovers again tonight.
Dessert – 9:30 p.m.
A piece of this delicious sea salt chocolate, which I ate crumbled up into tiny pieces in a bowl of Greek yogurt with blueberries.
There you go, another What I Ate Wednesday!
