Happy Wednesday! The fact that it’s the middle of the week is making me smile. Another reason to smile? It’s What I Ate Wednesday.
Today started bright and early, like it usually does. Up and at my spin class for 5:30.
Spin class has definitely gained popularity this year! I remember this time last year, there were probably, at most, 10 of us. And now we have to get there super early to make sure we get a bike for class.
Of course, it’s a good thing that people are getting involved in spin class, but I always dislike having to get there even earlier now.
After spin, my Mom and I went to Starbucks to treat ourselves to a coffee, typical. We are both Starbucks addicts.
When I arrived home, it was time for Breakfast.
This bowl had ground buckwheat cereal, 1/4 cup egg whites, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1 tablespoon ground flax, cinnamon, stevia, pumpkin and banana.
I was having a little craving for some tanginess to my morning bowl, so I scooped in some greek yogurt to satisfy my craving. Topped with peanut flour to finish it off.
I didn’t have time to stretch much after class, so I made sure to get my foam roller out and do some stretching in the living room. It was sort of challenging, and stretching hurts like heck when you avoid it.
However, I know I need to be stretching more often, you know, so I don’t get injured.
Post stretching, I baked up some tempeh, cauliflower, broccoli slaw, nutritional yeast, curry powder, coconut oil and served that on top of some pre cooked quinoa. And goat cheese, which melts all over the hot veggies.
I finished this up quickly, since I had to go to my acupuncture appointment. Have you ever gone to acupuncture?
I have to say, it has helped me SO much in dealing with my anxiety and stress levels. I love it.
Which may be kind of weird to say, I digress.
In between the hours of Lunch and Dinner, I was actually pretty hungry. Which doesn’t happen often on workout days.
I went with it.
Clearly, I’m obsessed with this stuff. It’s awesome.
And helped tide me over until Dinner time.
I’m glad I had prepped my chopped veggies ahead of time, since I was having a major migraine.
I just threw in some spinach and zucchini in the oven to roast and while that was baking away, I cooked up some socca to round out the meal. Topped with some extra coconut oil and nutritional yeast, and hidden mashed avocado in a shot glass.
Now, I’m sipping on tea and getting ready to finish the rest of the best movie ever, which I started watching Sunday, but for some reason didn’t finish?
Before bed, I will always snack again before hitting the hay. That’s a weird saying.
With that, I’m off.
Do you always make sure to stretch after exercise?
What time of day do you feel the most hunger?
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
