It’s time fooooooooor….. What I Ate Wednesday! *cymbal crash*

Thanks Jenn!

Hello hello and welcome to this week’s edition of WIAW.

Tuesday night dinner

was inspired by these goodies from Target!

I whipped up some lightened up general tso’s chicken with a side of all natural chow mein for me and Chad. The chicken turned out delish, but we weren’t really fans of the noodles.


A couple of hours later, we had some low fat ice cream for dessert!

That’s a serving of vanilla bean ice cream with fresh blueberries and crushed graham cracker. That cracker in the background was used once I got through the first half of the ice cream. 😉


Arms and chest baby… arms and chest.

We did 3 sets of 12 for Chest and 4 sets of 12 for arms. I’ve been sticking with the same weight for the past 2 weeks.

Chest Press, Flys, Incline Press, Push-up to failure.

Bicep Curls, Preacher Curls, Concentration Curls

Pull Downs, Kickbacks, Skull Crushers



I wasn’t going to eat an omelet, but then I made Chad some eggs and changed my mind. It smelled so good! I also had a side of toast with Bettern’ Peanut Butter.

Workout #2

Since I never got around to running yesterday, I convinced my self to go out for a quick 2 miler a few hours after breakfast! I ended up covering about 2.3 miles in 25 minutes.



After my run, I made a quick peaches and cream smoothie using 1/2 cup of frozen peaches, 1/3 cup of vanilla yogurt, and 1/4 cup almond milk.

Perfect post-run treat!

I was also going to treat myself to some post-run online shopping, but then I remembered that I had to treat myself to my monthly prescription meds from Rite Aid…. boo


Spinach, egg, and hummus sandwich with a side of baby carrots.

And a black cherry Chobani for more protein!

I don’t have much planned for this afternoon until church tonight, but I do see some verrrry ripe bananas that I may just have to use in a yummy recipe! Do you have any favorite recipes using bananas??? Send em’ my way! 🙂

    It always surprises me (yet… doesn’t) how many awesome and unique food things Target has! I swear, I go in for like, paper towels, and I walk out with a cart-full of groceries and clothes!
