What I Ate (and did) Wednesday

It’s a dreary and rainy Wednesday here.┬áBreakfast was a small protein shake and 1/2 a banana, pre-workout. After the gym I had a wheat bagel with peanut butter. That is some good stuff! I had a little mishap with the Almond butter and need to buy more. An unknown person accidentally put it in the pantry instead of the fridge. Bummer.

I was too hungry to take a picture before taking a bite!

Gym workout included 20 minutes on the elliptical, 75 sit-ups, worked on back and arm weights, plank on the Bosu ball and then only about 10 push-ups (my arms were tired)!

Lunch was leftover spaghetti and meatballs made with turkey sausage. I had 4 glasses of water checked off by lunch time. I also managed to clean out two junk drawers in the kitchen….yes we have 2 of them.

Dinner was open face Caprese sandwiches. I found the recipe on Pinterest a while ago, but unfortunately it looks like the original link isn’t working. Basically you grill or saute the chicken, stack it on sourdough bread with mozzarella cheese, tomato, basil, a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I’m sure there was more to the recipe than that, but it’s what I remember.

I also tried to make Sweet Potato chips. They didn’t exactly turn out like I hoped. The non-burnt parts were good, so I will keep trying!

I’m ready for the weather to warm back up. It’s been rainy and cool today and probably tomorrow but this weekend is supposed to be nice! Running 7 miles this weekend and then heading to the gym for a fitness assessment. Basically measurements, weight and BMI. Hoping to get the trainer to show me some new weights to use as well.

Did you workout today? How did you #EarnYourShower?

    Are you using a personal trainer at the gym?
    I was going to try those sweet potato chips tomorrow with dinner…did you cut them really thin? what would you do differently so they don’t burn?

      I don’t use a personal trainer but they have them. They are offering the fitness evaluation free.
      Not sure what to do about the chips. I’ve seen several recipes on how to cook them so I’ll just keep trying. What wasn’t burned was good!

        i’ve heard both good and bad about personal trainers so i was just curious if you were using one what your opinion was.
        I love the sweet potato chips at Blue Mesa so I was hoping if i could make them at home that I could stop eating the bad for me ones there. LOL

Tell me what you think!
