Good Morning!

roses

My husband got me 3 dozen roses to celebrate our 3 year anniversary!  Aren’t they so pretty!!

I thought I would share some of Eats Lately on this version of WIAW.  I really don’t feel like I’ve been posting much of my food or workouts lately, so I really need to get back into that, but here are some eats as of lately.

What I Ate Wednesday: Sensible Snacking

First up:  The dogs.  They have been snacking on some peanut butter bones. I’m sure if they talked they would say they were delicious!  Lily had to smell it first of course and then it disappeared.

Kroger was having a sale- buy 6 get 3 free so I got to try some new Sobe Life Water flavors. This one was my favorite!

Good Morning!

This WIAW is going to be, I wouldn’t say boring, but I will say simple, easy, delicious, and healthy, so check it out.  Make sure you also check out Jenn’s page.  She has some amazing dishes!

After a long weekend, I got to sleep in yesterday, woo hoo!  Instead of waking up at 5:30, I got to sleep until 8:30!  I didn’t have to go to work until 12, so I lounged around the house a little bit and played with the dogs.  Then came breakfast.

Breakfast: Around 9:30 ish

I could NOT decide If I wanted over easy eggs with toast, protein pancakes, fit french toast, oatmeal, or scrambled eggs.  Even though it’s been hot out I’ve been craving oatmeal.  I guess I just went too long without it.  Lately I’ve been putting a scoop of peanut butter in my oats, which is fantastic, but I was craving apricot preserves yesterday.

So breakfast was a combo of things:  Protein Oats with sugar free Apricot Preserves (I’m not a strawberry or grape or anything like that fan) with scrambled eggs.

breakfast 2

Oats:  1 packet plain oatmeal, 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder, 2 egg whites, water, 1 stevia packet = fluffiest oatmeal ever!

2 eggs from 2 egg whites

Then I had some coffee on my way to work which is totally weird and random because I usually HATE coffee!  I like it this morning though, a little cream and stevia and I was good to go.  I don’t know why I was so tired because I got to sleep in a little bit.  I guess that just means I can’t handle the party lifestyle of boating and drinking all weekend, I’m officially old.

Lunch:  Around 1:45

I had leftovers from Monday nights dinner.  In the mix;  Ground turkey, sausage, turkey bacon, scrambled egg, green beans, and spinach.  Also half of a banana.

I had a Protein shake after my crossfit workout at 5:30, also LOTS of water!  You must refuel with protein people.

Dinner:  Around 7 ish

NY Strip Steak:  seasoned with a tiny bit of sea salt and pepper, Mrs. Dash, and garlic powder

Asparagus (soooo easy, steam in the bag!)  I added salt and pepper, garlic, and a splash of lemon juice, YUM!

Also some fresh veggies on the side!  I got some cucumbers from the farmers market and they were lovely 🙂

Microwave for 70 seconds- you don’t want it too dry 🙂

What are you eating lately? Love or hate stevia? I don’t taste the bitterness people talk about.
