WIAW

Wednesday already!? I feel like I just did I WIAW post! I’m linking up with Jenn to show you what I ate…all day Tuesday.

First let’s start with the workout because that came before any food – I headed out for day 2 of my 1/2 marathon training plan and tackled 3 miles. Recently every single time I’ve run I get a horrible pain in my hip flexor. For the rest of the day it throbs and I have to semi-limp (I’m also a tad bit dramatic) and it is extremely uncomfortable. Any ideas from you runners??

Breakfast: Protein Shake from the gym – Banana Protein, Crunchy Peanut Butter, Soy Milk, Ice & Fat-burner supplement

Speaking of peanut butter – I posted some useful information on my FB yesterday – Time to stock up PB lovers!

Lunch: Whole Wheat Tortilla w/  bbq sauce, caramelized onions, leftover chicken & mozzarella cheese

Snack: Popcorn

Dinner: Zucchini noodles w/ meatless meatballs, marinara and nutritional  yeast. I also baked zucchini sticks with marinara (egg whites & whole wheat panko)

Dessert: S’mores bowl – graham cracker sheet, marshmallows, dark chocolate chips – Microwave for 20 seconds

If you can’t have the real thing, this will satisfy your craving!

The weather is starting to cool down so I wore this

Long sleeve shirt with lace back: Forever 21

Ripped Jeans: Citizens of Humanity

Tan Boots: Nordstrom

Necklace: So old I can’t remember but probably Forever 21

Short hair: Unfortunately, me.

Adam kept telling me my hair was getting too long (pretty sure he was annoyed it was everywhere in the house) so I decided to cut my hair.. Well i made a quick decision and just said cut 5 1/2 inches off. WHY? I always do this and get mad at myself.. I like long hair because my hair is thick and looks like a poof when its short…so long story short I will be growing it out, again.

QUESTIONS: Have you ever regretted a haircut?

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Are you sick of seeing pumpkin yet? Because guess what? I made another pumpkin recipe…Sorry, I’m not sorry.

When I got home from work on Friday night all I wanted was breakfast. I made myself a dippy egg, pepper jack cheese and “bacon” sandwich thin. I wasn’t satisfied so I offered to make smoothies for Adam and I while we watched a movie. Then I begged he go buy whipped cream for said smoothies.

Nothing like a piece of pumpkin pie in liquid form (with 3/4 less the calories!)

Last night we had date night

We try not to repeat restaurants because there are SO many to choose from. We went to a place called Court Street in Hoboken.

I really don’t like giving restaurants bad reviews because I’m a big fan of local businesses but honestly – this place has some work to do. Sangria was wine and water (no fruit – best part!), my stuffed shrimp was all breading, carrots were just boiled, baked potato had no seasoning and our dessert was actually bitter. Robert Irvine needs to rescue them ASAP!

It’s football Sunday so you know where to find us!

QUESTIONS: Have you ever been to a restaurant and every meal you had wasn’t good?
