Well it’s been a few months since I did a WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) post and seeing as it’s Wednesday…
I was pretty organised today and brought my breakfast, lunch and snacks to work. Recently it’s been a hit or a miss whether I make or buy my breakfast/lunch but I definitely feel the benefit both financially and weight-wise when I prepare and bring my food from home.
I ate my breakfast once I got into work at 8.30am. This was my breakfast berry smoosh and a machine coffee (bad habit but coffee was needed this morning!).
My breakfast berry smoosh is a mixture of greek yoghurt, raspberries, flaxseed, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds all smooshed together.
At 10.30am I had a green tea and then at 11am I was going to have a pre-gym snack but I was so busy chatting I almost missed the class completely!
Today’s gym class was a really fun but tough boxercise class.
At 1pm once I was back at my desk I had my lunch which was homemade carrot soup and a pink grapefruit.
I LOVE pink grapefruits, so sweet I could honestly eat one after another…
At 2pm I had a tangerine and some pistachios nuts along with a mug of Feijoa tea (new delivery all the way from big sis Keeks in NZ!).
Tonight’s dinner was a bit of a ‘what do I have in the fridge/freezer?’ effort…but it turned out really tasty.
In a pan I fried off a few tomatoes and a yellow pepper. I then added frozen mediterranean prawns from Aldi (highly recommended, super easy and only 160kcal for a massive bag!) and stirfried until cooked through. I served this with some buckwheat noodles. Very good if I do say so myself!
After dinner it was a cup of milky tea and a chocolate biscuit, because why not!
So that was a pretty decent day in my opinion!
I’ve actually had a really good exercise week so far. The weather’s getting better and I’m taking the opportunity to get outside more.
On Sunday Josh and I (and the dog) went out a lovely walk (ended up around 5 miles); Monday lunchtime I gave the gym a miss and went a powerwalk with my gym buddy Kasia; same on Tuesday lunch break and at night Josh and I went a 3 mile jog/walk that I really enjoyed (hope we keep it up I’ve let running slide a little this year); and then my boxercise class today.
