Leftovers seemed to be the theme for Monday’s eats. And boy, do I love leftovers!
While most people had off on Monday, I was still up at 4:45 am to teach Spinning and Bodypump, followed by a full morning of training clients. In between teaching and my first client appointment, I had just enough time to run home to shower and eat some breakfast.
And of course, I stopped by my favorite coffee place first.
Salted Caramel Mocha coffee with soy milk. Not a latte- just flavored coffee. This stuff is HEAVEN.
Breakfast was sorta leftovers- Swiss Oats in an empty peanut butter jar.
I think they qualify as leftovers, because I soaked the oats in water the night before (and then stirred everything else in right before I ate it). After that, I was right back out the door to one of the clubs that I train at. My last client was over at the other gym (the one that I taught classes at in the morning) and I had an apple in the car.
* That photo was taken at a stoplight- I promise.
That’s my life- running back and forth between the two gyms and my house. It’s exhausting sometimes, but I know that it won’t always be like this. And it definitely helps that when I’m there, training or teaching, I’m head over heels in love with what I do.
When I was finally done working for the day, I came home and quickly grabbed this jar to snack on while I made some lunch.
The rest of lunch included a turkey and veggie sandwich using the end piece of a loaf of bread (oh, yes).
And the best tasting soup I think I’ve ever had.
My friend Georgia made this and brought it to me over the weekend. It’s turkey sausage and lentils and I can’t even describe just how delicious it is. I will definitely be sharing the recipe once I get it from her! (I added in a few handfuls of spinach to bulk it up.)
A little later, I had an afternoon snack of P28 high protein “cereal”:
(1/2 of a P28 flatbread sprinkled with cinnamon, cocoa powder and stevia and baked in the oven for a few minutes.) I don’t typically buy boxed cereal anymore- because I have a tendency to mindlessly snack on it. Making my own to order has been a much better idea.
For dinner, we had leftover chili from Sunday’s game.
I topped it with “croutons” – which were just cut up pieces of a mini cornbread muffin and Greg mixed rice with his.
Dessert was, you guessed it: a Bosc pear (not as good as my beloved Concorde, but I’m learning to love them!).
I like to cut them up into super thin slices and eat each piece one by one- which trying to ignore the hungry puppy eyes staring at me the entire time, just waiting for a piece to drop.
The final water tally for the day…
I switched my goal down to 80 oz. (which is just pure water- not including coffee, tea or anything else). It’s definitely more bladder friendly.
Have a great (What I ate) Wednesday!
