Happy Hump day! Please say i’m not the only one who loves the camel hump day commercial! Well i’m getting a little off track, today were talking about food! I’m joining the wonderful Jenn and her new chickpea for WIAW link up party!
If your new around here, WIAW isn’t about comparison or judgement but more of a fun way to share some daily eats and get ideas for fun new recipes. I’m going to showcase my eats from Monday. I didn’t have to work Monday and took advantage of the lazy morning to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and coconut milk before making breakfast.
9 am: Egg white oatmeal with almond extract, chia seeds, cinnamon and fresh figs! Loving figs and so excited I spotted some at our local TJ’s! I wasn’t so excited to see one website say that 1 fig is 45 calories. I have been eating them like there is no end since we went shopping Sunday.
11 am: Gym time! 40 minutes on the elliptical, a quick ab workout and 20 minutes on the bike. I really wanted to go for a run outside but, the leg that I injured this spring has been getting progressively sorer each day. I don’t want to go back to the horrible boot so I am hoping not stressing it with running for a few weeks might help.
1 pm: Leftover tofu and veggie stir fry with white rice and black bean sauce. As usual, I ate this cold. I usually think leftovers are better cold than reheated.
7 pm: Watermelon appetizer! Tyler and I had picked up the watermelon over the weekend at the farmers market and I couldn’t wait any longer to dig in. Bentley also enjoyed a little, I love watching him eat watermelon
7:45pm: loaded dinner salad. I had some iceberg lettuce, broccoli, mushrooms, a shaved raw ear of corm, and bolthouse blue cheese dressing. Okay, I know iceberg lettuce isn’t nearly as nutritious as its dark friends but I love the crunch!
After dinner I spent the evening doing more homework and then relaxing while watching the food network for a little while. I have been using my Back on Track horse wrap on my leg the last few nights. I’m hoping the ceramic of the BOT wraps and increased blood flow helps with healing whatever might be going on.
What have you been eating this week?
Have you ever heard of Back on Track products? I used a lot of their products on my horses. The last horse I competed had some back problems and I always noticed he moved so much better after wearing his blanket over night. You could also see a visible reduction in swelling with the leg wraps so I’m hoping it works for me too!
