What is it about a crappy day of eating that makes you want to start fresh the next day?! Yeah, I started my Monday off on the right foot…and then I was majorly derailed by mid-afternoon… Well, that didn’t work – and who wants to see the crap I ate that day?! I know I don’t want to show you… ha!
So Tuesday it is! I was a lot better keeping track of my appetite and staying away from the extra sugar around me… Here you go! What I Ate Wednesday – but more like what I ate ON Tuesday 🙂
[breakfast] homemade kombucha
I was able to wake up EARLY and take my thyroid pill, but since the weather was questionable with lightening within 10 miles of us, I didn’t get up to go run. Instead, I opted to stay in bed longer 🙂 I started my morning with a nice glass of kombucha before heading off to work.
[morning snack] banana + Honey Stinger waffle
Since I missed my morning run, I waited out the storms and took an early lunch run. I wasn’t about to head out into the heat and humidity on an empty stomach (even though I do on any typical 5:30am running morning). I have been up for more than few hours now, so I was getting hungry – a banana and waffle (thank you HS lady at the Lincoln expo for treating the pacers to some HS goodies) hit the spot and gave me a little extra energy to take on the trails!
[workout] 4.5 easy, but high-ish HR miles on the streets and trail

A little trail therapy 🙏 • It is hard to believe these are the same trails I have been running the past few months…so lush and green!! • My @adidasrunning #ultraboostx are loving the trails! I feel more connected to the ground without all the extra shoe around my foot ❤❤ My @buff_usa sleeves kept my arms shielded from the UVs as well. #buffusa #bibravepro • #halfmarathon #training #hhr2017 #hospitalhillhalf @hospitalhillrun #volunteer #run #runner #trail #trailrunning #ilikesweatpink
[lunch] lettuce wraps with turkey + carrots + guacamole
A fresh lunch to keep my day on track! These romaine lettuce wraps are super simple to make and you can pack them with lots of goodies! I forgot to add tomatoes and cucumber before packing them away, but they are still great!
[afternoon snack] Granny Smith apple + Once Again Cashew Butter + Erin Bakers peanut butter cluster granola
I am a sucker for apples and almond butter – I eat it at least once a day most days! I have been mixing it up a bit lately.
After a work meeting, I noticed a fresh bag of popcorn…so I grabbed some – no, I wasn’t necessarily hungry, but my snacking brain went a little overlaod… Oh well.
[dinner] hot dog w/lettuce “bun” + homemade spinach artichoke dip + carrot sticks
While I was “good” most of the day, the hubs was in charge of dinner. I planned on eating a sweet potato with some fixin’s…but I then just decided to take the easy way out and eat what everyone else was eating…almost 🙂
The hubs was craving some spinach artichoke dip…so he made up a BIG batch of it. Rather than eating it with chips (like the boys), I paired it with carrots – so good!! Also, I subbed the hot dog bun for romaine lettuce – win!
Little man and I enjoyed our dinner and conversation while the hubs watched the baseball game 🙂 Pai was sure to collect any scraps that landed on the floor…
I’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment and start a conversation!
