what I ate Wednesday #2

I know I’m your typical blogger – absolutely awful at sticking to a blog schedule – but I do love a good WIAW – they help hold me accountable for every morsel of food I put in my mouth. 

I hope you love these posts too and they you some ideas for quick everyday meals.

So today I woke up at 5:15 to go to Crossfit (I know I’m mental right?!?) – I can never eat at that time so would usually grab a coffee with some MCT oil and drink it on my way out the door but today I was running late – I was so sleepy I even walked for 10 minutes with my earphones in and no music playing.

The workout today was a sweaty one – I even stripped to my sports bra for the first time EVER it was that hot – sorry to all who had to witness this!  So we did –

10 rounds x 1 minute

3 Deadlifts (RX 95kg)
Shuttle runs 5/15/20
Burpees for remaining time

Rest 1 min

Your score would be the number of burpees. 

After Crossfit I rushed home to quickly shower and walk the dog, I’m out of protein at the moment but had boiled some eggs late last night so quickly peeled and ate one of these.

I know this isn’t a great post workout meal but as long as I can get something in my body within 30-45 of training I’m happy!!

I took a further 2 eggs to work with me with the view of getting avocado on my way but again I was running late (yes – it’s a problem) so I grabbed a banana in the work canteen – cautiously edging round the oats – to eat with almond butter and my eggs (weird but strangely satisfying).  I try to think of my meals at carbs/fats/proteins so I guess this meal ticked the box.

For lunch I had a simple tuna salad at my desk

I then ate scoffed a Nakd bar which are my absolute favourites.

This was supposed to be my 4pm energy hit (damn how I need to whole30 again) so I then had the task of avoiding food until dinner time – anyone who knows me knows this is one mean feat!

This evening I had the arduous task of cleaning my make-up brushes and removing my acrylic nails – you girls know what I’m saying – so I coerced my husband into putting together a healthy evening salad of warm chorizo, red onion & grilled haloumi…


Good job babe (my terrible picture doesn’t do it justice)

For a late snack I had a large square of dark chocolate; dark chocolate is so good for you as it’s full of antioxidants, just make sure it’s over 70% – mine was 85% Yum!

I’m proud of myself not snacking too much today – are any of my readers snackers?  If so, let me know your healthiest snacks in the comments below.

    Alison. I’ve just sat scoffing a scone with clotted cream and jam and I’M NOT EVEN HUNGRY! You need to get me back on the straight and narrow!
