WIAW – The Fitnessista


Sharing a complete day of eats from begin to end. 

Hey hey! Blissful humpday! What’s happening this morning? I’ve 1:1 calls all morning and getting a podcast episode edited and able to go. I hope you may have a stunning day forward.

For as we speak’s submit, I assumed I’d share a WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) because it’s been some time. I at all times love getting wholesome meal inspiration from mates, so I prefer to share these posts for an thought of what a typical day of eats appears to be like like. I can perceive why all these posts will not be useful for everybody (sharing my ideas on that right here!) however I attempted some a few new recipes and am excited to share them with ya.

Right here’s what a full day of latest eats regarded like from begin to end! (I took these pics a few weeks in the past however am simply sharing them now! The youngsters weren’t at camp this explicit week, so I used to be juggling work stuff in between ensuring they have been comfortable, fed, and entertained. The Pilot was additionally out of city for work so I used to be doing the solo parenting factor. I additionally allow them to watch some additional TV whereas I acquired issues achieved, let’s be actual.)

8:20am

I slept in till 8 (summer season, I really like youuuuuuuuuuuu) after which began my day with a big glass of water with Sakara Magnificence drops (minerals which might be fully tasteless. I like including these to my water since I filter it with the Berkey, and my stress degree is a bit increased currently, which may deplete minerals)

Because it was a busy morning work-wise, I had a Bulletproof bar and a cup of espresso (decaf with uncooked milk, Stevia, and collagen), probiotics/digestive enzymes from Sakara and made the youngsters a fast breakfast. I sat on the kitchen desk with my laptop and helped the youngsters whereas they labored on their summer season packets.

10:15am

Watered the crops and had the remainder of my breakfast:

2 scrambled eggs, 2 slices of turkey bacon, and a reheated Tremendous Hero muffin from this cookbook. These muffins are SO good and the youngsters beloved serving to me make them. At any time when we make breakfast staples, I attempt to make a double batch and freeze them for fast choices.

I sat by the pool writing whereas the youngsters swam, hopped in for a bit to chill off and play, and took two 1:1 teaching calls upstairs whereas the youngsters dried off and ate their lunch.

1:30 pm: Lunch

Chopped rooster salad with inexperienced olives, artichokes, spinach, Primal Kitchen Goddess dressing, a bowl of blueberries, and a Sakara inexperienced smoothie

(My fave veggie hack = the Poshi packs from Thrive Market. They’re good for including to salads, scrambles, and wraps.)

+ a mug of inexperienced tea whereas I completed free ends and logged out for the day.

I acquired dinner into the Immediate Pot, and the youngsters and I spent the remainder of the afternoon on the trampoline park (with a cease at DQ for cones for the ladies on the best way house).

5:30pm: Dinner

That is certainly one of our go-to soup combos each time somebody is feeling beneath the climate, or when a soup craving hits. Even when it’s 100+ levels right here, soup at all times sounds good to me. We every had it with a hunk of sourdough bread and the youngsters beloved it, too!

After dinner, we took Maisey for a brief stroll across the neighborhood. Caro selected to stay snoozing on the sofa.

8:30pm baked apples for all. The youngsters and I wished just a little candy chew after dinner, and all of us love this night snack. You simply chop an apple, microwave it in a bowl with cinnamon for about 2 minutes, and high with peanut butter and/or chocolate chips. (On this case, it was chocolate peanut butter. SO good.) I additionally had a mug of heat almond milk with Organifi chocolate gold.

I showered the crew, we learn books, and I put them to mattress, and cranked out some final minute work: completed a weblog submit, drafted social media shout outs, edited a reel whereas listening to an IHP module. I learn just a few pages of a guide (ending this one) earlier than crashing out at round 11:45.

What I appreciated about at the present time:

I hit my protein aim, however most significantly: it was a day of filling and satisfying eats. The youngsters loved at the present time of meals, particularly the soup and the breakfast. (For lunch, they’d a deconstructed model of the salad and their breakfast was the identical + some strawberries and banana.) I used to be additionally pleased with myself for having actual meals!! It may be tough to juggle work and the youngsters in the course of the day (which is why I normally signal them up for no less than half-day summer season camps or ask our babysitter to return over for just a few hours) as a result of I really feel stretched and like I’m at all times ignoring one thing or somebody.

On days like this, except I’ve prepped lots prematurely, I are likely to have bites of issues in between duties and chores, or eat on the laptop or within the automotive. This explicit day, I had rounded meals, sat right down to get pleasure from them, and I really feel fairly pumped about that.

What I might have modified:

I might have discovered a manner so as to add some veggies to breakfast to extend my servings only a bit. I additionally would have most well-liked to eat breakfast first as a substitute of the bar, nevertheless it was sufficient to carry me over till I may eat a full meal. Since I ended consuming meals on the laptop, I can’t do it anymore! It feels so significantly better to attend till I can sit down and truly style the meals I’m consuming. 😉

What’s the perfect factor you ate yesterday? Something you’re presently loving or new cookbook faves?
