Hi guys! It’s Wednesday, and for once, I’m kind of wishing the week would slow down. I have 8 days left with my kiddos before summer break, and I’m trying to enjoy it rather than wish these last few days away.
Of course, I say this at 6 a.m. before I’ve had the pleasure of spending 6 precious hours with my class! Let’s see if I feel the same way after hours of tattling, yelling, fighting, etc.
Anyway, I missed last week’s What I Ate Wednesday, and I’m happy to be back! Especially because this month is focused on one of my favorite things…. SNACKS!
I have to be especially careful with my snacking, because they are something that I adore and can find myself going overboard with. I love snacks of all kinds… pretzels, nuts, veggies, hummus, yogurts, smoothies… yum.
Now that I’m really trying to get myself back on track after the past few months of indulgences, I need to be more mindful of my snacking. On one hand, I need snacks to keep my hunger under control between meals, but on the other hand, I don’t want to go overboard. I kept all this in mind as I packed my meals for Tuesday!
8:15 – Breakfast
Kombucha Gingerade, a Gala apple, and a Cliff MOJO bar. Packed this up and eaten at my desk before my kids barged in the classroom! This actually did a pretty good job of holding me over, so I skipped eating the baby carrots that I had packed for a mid-morning snack.
11:45 – Lunch (recycled picture, but the same exact deliciousness)
For lunch, I chowed down on a Flatout wrap with hummus and kale and a side of TLC crackers. I also finished off those baby carrots that I was supposed to have for my snack earlier.
3:00 – After school snack
I was dreaming of this smoothie bowl the entire ride home! Chocolate protein powder, frozen spinach, unsweetened almond milk and some Fiber One cereal for added crunch on top. It was everything I dreamed of…
7:30 – Dinner
After a great workout at the gym of a heart pumping cardio session followed by a tougher than usual Bodypump class, I wanted something quick, easy, and healthy! We had some ground turkey in the fridge, so Bobby and I whipped up some turkey tacos. I had one taco on a wrap plus some salad with all the taco fixings on the side. Mexican just might take the cake for my favorite type of food. I could have devoured more, but I stuck to this plate before I packed up the rest for my lunch today!
After looking at my eats, I realized that I actually didn’t “snack” much today, but I think I did a good job of spacing out my meals and not letting myself get too hungry throughout the day. Success!
