What I Ate Wednesday [3] & Workout Schedule

Another round of Wednesday eats coming your way…

What I Ate Wednesday Yesterday 

WIAW 3 - July 3 collage with url

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:

MondayYoga 

Tuesday: Run

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

Sunday: Boxing

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 littlehoneybeeblog@gmail.com and I can surely do my best to help you make your own schedule or have any other questions.

What was the best thing you’ve eaten this week so far?

Do you make a workout schedule?

  1. Best thing I’ve eaten this week was probably my breakfast this morning-
    Greek yogurt with PB and pumpkin butter with pecans, coconut shavings and strawberries.
    I love food that requires a spoon to eat.
    When I’m working for a goal I like to have a schedule but I’ve been slacking on the schedule lately.

  2. Really enjoying your blog. Admire you also. I’m a Canadian also…was going to email you, but I’m older and basically rock bottom with eating-fitness and digestion, so would be too…embarrassing . Oh well, love the blog anyway. And exact smoothie recipe? Thick or thin? Thanks!

    1. Never embarrassing! Please feel free to email if you’d like :) I don’t have the exact measurements but here are the approximates for the smoothie: 1.5 cups almond milk, 1 scoop Vega vanilla almondilla protein powder, 4 frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen raspberries and 5 frozen peach pieces. It came out nice and thick! Add some orange juice if you want to make it thinner.

      1. Thanks. I haven’t seen that protein powder. I currently have some “Hemp pro 70), so I can try that I guess…not sure what fruits I have there, so will have to play around with it. I bet adding oils and flax, etc are good too . And lots of people add crunch (like granola) on top, very interesting.

        1. Any protein powder works! So whatever you find. You could definitely add some more bulk to the smoothie by topping it with nuts, seeds or granola as you suggested. When I have smoothies at night I try to lighten them up. In the morning I also add chia seeds and flax seeds. The possibilities are endless!
