The photos from this week’s WIAW post were shot on Saturday. Or, as I like to call it: “Snack-er-day.”
See what I did there?
I woke up early to teach the Bodypump 84 launch, and noticed a Winter Wonderland before me…
Ahh… pretty snow.
I fueled up with some Fitmixer Aminos and headed out the door to PUMP it up!
Class was awesome, but by the time I got home I was super hungry. I walked right in the door and quickly made a banana + blueberry smoothie.
I love that sight…
It was more like sorbet- thick and creamy and eaten with a spoon. SO good.
A few hours later, my good friend April came over to visit and we went over to Panera to grab some lunch. I had been looking at the menu online beforehand, since it had been a while since I had been to a Panera. There was a “Turkey Mediterranean Power Salad” listed, which sounded delightful! However, when I got there, it wasn’t listed on the menu. I asked about it any way and the cashier said “it’s listed in the computer- it must be a super secret salad!”
I guess I’m part of some super secret salad club now.
I asked for dressing on the side, which was half a lemon and a single serve packet of olive oil.
Lunch was good, but I found myself hungry again an hour or two later. So, I snacked on an apple in my car while running some errands.
And more snacking happened when I got home later in the afternoon, including a few handfuls of this:
That stuff is super addictive!
I also made a microwave muffin using shredded zucchini, pumpkin, coconut + barley flour (amongst other things).
Heather- I bet you’re super impressed that this jar isn’t empty yet! I’m hoarding it….
There were probably a few spoonfuls of Greek yogurt and handfuls of peanuts consumed as well… but I didn’t take any photos of that. (Shame, shame!)
By the time dinner rolled around, I was still hungry. Shocking, I know. I had been craving Mexican flavors, so I made chicken taco salads!
This was topped with salsa fresca, a baked corn tortilla and salsa + plain Greek yogurt as a dressing. I eat some sort of taco salad for dinner about once a week- and it never gets old.
My beverage of choice:
I looooove that stuff.
A pear with some Greek yogurt and granola. Perfect combo!
As I looked through the photos of my daily eats I thought “whoa… I snacked a lot!” I can think of a few reasons for this: #1 I taught Bodypump in the morning, and am always “hungrier” on days that I strength train (and Saturday is usually a rest day).
#2: I didn’t drink enough water
#3: I wasn’t “prepared” with my cut up veggies. I almost always have cut up carrots, celery, etc. right in the front of my fridge so that I reach for that to snack on instead of something else that I may regret later.
It is what it is- but now I’m aware of some of those triggers and have been keeping my water bottle full 24-7! Check out how much more water I drank on Sunday:
Have a great WIAW!
How do you “curb” snacking? Do you find yourself to be “snackier” on certain days?
