Whoa – this marks my one hundredth What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) post. I feel like it should be monumental… or something? Ha. Anyways, if you’re new here, “What I Ate Wednesday” is basically a post about what I ate all day. Fun, right? I guess if you love food as much as I do it’s fun.
So yesterday was a really fun day. Like really fun. Basically I got to eat good food and hang out with cool people all day. I mean, really, it doesn’t get much better than that.
The day obviously started with breakfast, and I went with my usual – this cereal topped with thawed raspberries. I really thought I’d start branching out to warmer breakfasts since it’s getting cold outside, but nope, still loving how easy, satisfying, and delicious this breakfast is.
Hunter and I went to the gym soon after he woke up so I could get to my new favorite Pump class. I got there like ten minutes late, and then got called to change Hunter’s diaper about twenty minutes before the class was supposed to end. Of course I forgot to put more diapers in his diaper bag before we left the house, which left me with no diaper to change Hunter. Uh, good one, Ash. That being said, we left and I didn’t get to enjoy the full class, but hey, it happens.
I had one of these Designer Whey “Protein 2Go” packets mixed into some water when I got home to help rehydrate and refuel me. They are pretty darn tasty and so easy when you’re in a pinch.
I got ready and all that jazz and realized I was starving, so I grabbed a piece of banana bread and topped it with a little butter to eat before we hit the road again. This banana bread is our new favorite banana bread recipe, and it’s actually one of the healthiest I’ve seen too. Win win!
Lunch was a grilled cheese/veggie panini with a side of butternut squash soup (not shown in photo – whoops) and spinach salad. Yummm. Pretty much the perfect fall lunch.
My company made it even more perfect though. Love this girl so much. We had way too much fun chatting the afternoon away.
She provided dessert and shared some of her amazing Swiss chocolate. Nothing compares, I tell you!
After I was done hanging out with Annette, I rushed home to do a few things and headed over to Cody’s work to give him Hunter and swap vehicles. Then I drove over to a girlfriend’s house from my MOPS group for a craft/appetizer/wine night! It was SO nice to enjoy an evening of girl time, chatting, and getting to know one another better.
I didn’t take any pictures, but my dinner was basically just a bunch of appetizers and desserts – chips and salsa, crackers and cheese, veggies and hummus, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, and fudge were all included. Trust me, I was not deprived.
So now that I played all day yesterday, I have work to do today.
I’ll catch y’all later!
P.S. Clearly my photography is far from stellar in this post. I’ll admit, it’s half laziness and half clueless-ness. Thanks for your understanding.
What’s your breakfast of choice these days?
Do you “refuel” after a workout? What do you usually eat/drink?
