WIAW

Day late…Dollar short. Story of my life! But since It’s What I ate Wednesday I thought I’d show you what I REALLY did eat on Wednesday!

Breakfast:

1/4 cup cooked quinoa, 1/4 cup raisins, 1/2 smashed banana, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 tbs slivered almonds, cinnamon and agave

Lunch:

Vegan Mac and Cheese Casserole and Vegetable Soup

Dinner:

Morning Star “Chicken” Patty w/ ketchup on sandwich thin – Apple sliced with peanut flour sauce

Dessert:

NOTHING exciting! I came home SO hungry last night that I almost ate the lunch I had for dinner too. That would’ve been pretty to share.

I’m also still mildly addicted to pinterest. Yesterday I made another monogram for our bedroom.

I drew a block-letter k on a 11×17 piece of white cardstock. Then I glued the buttons on one-by-one and overlapped some to give it a 3-d effect.

Love it 🙂

Outfit:

Awkward picture.

Yellow Cardigan: H&M

Brown Tank: Nordstrom

Jeans: True Religion

Headband: Forever 21

Necklace: Nordstrom

I skipped my workout yesterday but need to get on it today – I have a LONG weekend of fun ahead of me 🙂

Questions: Do you put ketchup on your “chicken” patties? I would never eat it with grilled chicken but it seems right to me when it’s breaded.

WIAW

It’s that time of the week! What I ate (wore and did) Wednesday 🙂

This morning I woke up ready for a run… I checked the weather and it was only 55 degrees! I threw on a long sleeve shirt to keep me warm. Redskins represent!

I look way to excited for 6am! (Please excuse the mess, I’m packing)

Today wasn’t just any normal run though… Today I did something I’ve NEVER done. I hit the pavement sans iPod. My iPod was charged but I wanted to clear my mind so I tried running without entertainment. It worked! I  knocked out my 4 miles in 32 minutes. Go me 🙂 I also came home and did a 10 minute ab video On Demand. I forget what it was called but the trainer sure was handsome!

The reason I wanted to clear my mind this morning was because today marks 3 years of my Uncle Chuck passing away and I knew my morning could get rough. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer and passed away about a year later. It’s definitely been one of the hardest things my family has EVER had to deal with.

So this mornings run was for you ❤ Missing you everyday.

After my workout I had breakfast… and it wasn’t cereal for once!

I headed into work around 10:30 so the girls and I headed straight over to my Aunt’s house. My grandma wanted to plant flowers in memory of my Uncle and I didn’t want to miss it – Plus, the girls love these types of activities! My brothers, cousins, aunts and grandma all attended and ordered pizza for lunch. I however had already packed my lunch and am not one to waste food.

Definitely not as fun as pizza…But still delicious 🙂

When lunch was finished we all went out back to get our gardening on.

Voila. In between planting the girls also took some breaks to do some trampoline jumping. Someone may have jumped on someones face… But it was nothing a little ice cream couldn’t fix!

Naps were taken by the girls. I enjoyed a snack or two while catching up on blogs.

I got home around 615 and immediately ate dinner. I like to eat early!

Meh. Just so-so. You know what comes after dinner right? My favorite time of the day.

By the way – Thanks for all of your recommendations on the cookie name… I think I’ll go with Shanna’s – Breakfast Cookies!

I may have had one more after taking a picture of those two above…

But shhh…let’s keep that our secret 😉
