Another round of Wednesday eats coming your way…
What I Ate
Breakfast: For breakfast I had a bowl of oatmeal topped with banana slices, raisins and almond butter. I cooked the oats with some banana slices, which gave the oats some yummy natural sweetness.
Snack: I don’t think that I got enough protein at breakfast (aka I was starving by 10am…) so I opted for a lemon coconut Simply Bar before lunch.
Lunch: I had some leftover grilled chicken so I diced it up, tossed in some quinoa and veggies and dressed it all with balsamic. I also had some peas and two oat, banana cookies (I added almonds to this batch).
Snack: I had some of my freshly picked strawberries, a banana (not pictured) and almonds before going to yoga. I pack almonds in a handy tin that portions out a serving size of nuts– you can buy your own cute almond tin here.
Dinner: I was pretty tired after yoga and a busy day at work so dinner was a bit of a hodge-podge: scrambled egg whites with spinach, 1/2 whole wheat pita, hummus, a few cherry tomatoes and a pear.
Dessert: My night is never complete without a little after dinner snack. Since I am trying to load up on protein, I had a smoothie: almond milk, raspberries, strawberries, peaches and 1 scoop of Vega vanilla almondilla. Yup that did the trick!
The WIAW theme of this month is fun, food & fitness.
I’ve covered the food, so let’s move on to the fitness… and hopefully you thought this was all fun :)
Now that I am feeling much more settled into my new life, I created a workout schedule that fits my needs. Scheduling your workouts as you would anything else holds you accountable. If it is on your calendar, treat it as you would a lunch date or appointment. I hope you wouldn’t blow off a friend for lunch… so don’t skip your sweat session!
Of course, like your meal plan, this schedule does not need to be set in stone. If something comes up (as such things happens in life) adjust your schedule in order to find your balance. For instance, this week was a long weekend for us Canadians so I missed yoga on Monday and went on Tuesday instead.
Here’s what my typical week looks like:
Wednesday: Strength training
Thursday: Run or another fun activity: next up, trampoline class!
Friday: Rest day! This is an important part of a healthy lifestyle too.
Saturday: Strength training
This schedule works for me. Think about your priorities and commitments. When is the best time for you to workout? Are you busier during the week and have more time on the weekends? Are you a morning person? Do you prefer to let off some steam after work?
Feel free to email me at email@example.com and I can surely do my best to help you make your own schedule or have any other questions.
