I’ve been one HUNGRY beast lately. So this What I Ate Wednesday is actually only a snippet of what I ate yesterday because I’m sure you don’t want to see 20 spoonfuls of nut butter. I wish I was kidding.
Here’s another hungry beast (I love catching them mid-yawn! He looks like a velociraptor). I’ve caught him trying to break into the bag of cat food in the pantry several time today. He’s quite the sneaky little devil.
Breakfast: Peanut butter oats! Again. If variety is the spice of life my breakfast falls somewhere around white bread and mayonnaise (which actually sounds like a really disgusting sandwich). I also had two eggs over easy and a couple spoonfuls of almond butter (I wasn’t kidding when I said I was hungry!) before leaving for work, but no pictures because I was running a little late.
A lemon Good n’ Natural bar. The lemon flavor was on close-out at my local grocery store for only $0.65, so I had to pick up a couple. The flavor is not the best, but they weren’t bad, and bonus is that they’re full of lots of healthy ingredients.
Lunch: My lunch was a little scattered, I went straight from work to my boyfriend’s to see him for a couple of hours before he had to go into work. I was still pretty full from the bar earlier so I stopped at Whole Foods for something small.
Black bean and butternut squash chili. Sooo good. Total opposite of a summer staple but, it was an overcast day and Whole Foods had their AC set to Artic to I was craving something warm. I also picked up some smoke chicken wings and mac and cheese for my boyfriend because I’m a nice girlfriend. It felt really weird to buy chicken wings, I was worried the vegetarian gods might smite me. He said they were delicious though!
I had a banana with some homemade(!) sunflower seed butter. I made the sunflower seed butter using my grandmother’s peanut butter machine that we dug out of the attic a few weeks ago. I think I’m in love with it. I’ll have to take a picture for you guys next time I have it out.
The banana was followed by a cottage cheese and sunflower seed butter combo, because I was starving but it was too early for dinner.
I’m a little sad that I’m all out of cottage cheese.
I made a quick stir fry with tofu, a frozen veggie mix and Trader Joe’s Thai Red Curry Sauce (which I’m absolutely addicted to) and an un-pictured peach before heading out for the gym and dance class.
Hungry beast was in full force at this point, that innocent jar of homemade almond butter (apparently I’m a nut butter making machine right now) didn’t stand a chance. I also had an apple, a plum, an egg over easy and a stick of string cheese.
String cheese is such a silly food.
Usually I try to avoid a lot of late night snacking (I have a hard time sleeping after) but my stomach could not be quieted. I don’t know what’s up with my appetite lately but it is monstrous.
I also have to share my workouts for the week because I’ve had some good ones!
Thursday: 6 AM spin class, gotta love starting off the morning with a little (actually a lot) of sweat
Friday: 6 AM Basic Training class and boy was it a good one (you can read about it here), I’m on a serious roll with these early morning workouts! It’s such a nice way to start the day off
Saturday: My first CrossFit class! (Recap here) I’m officially obsessed! I can’t wait to go back next week!
Sunday: A nice relaxing yoga class
Monday: 6 AM Interval Training class, the instructor incorporated lots exercises with the Bosu, which was fun
Tuesday: A 20/20/20 class and my final dance class! I’m going to miss those dance classes, it was so good to get back into the dance studio for a few weeks!
And this morning I took a yoga class with one of my favorite instructors. We focused on hip and low back openers, which was just what I needed, I felt amazing after!
Tonight I’m taking an Intro to Rock Climbing class at a nearby indoor rock climbing facility. I snagged a Groupon for the class a couple months ago and I’m really excited to finally use it. It sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun an I can’t wait!
How do you deal with an out of control appetite? Nut butter is usually pretty good at quieting my rumbling belly
Have you ever been rock climbing?
