So excited for it to be the middle of the week already!  Why?  Because we are counting down to my BIRTHDAY!!  WOO.  AND since it’s Wednesday, it means it’s time for another “What I Ate Wednesday“!!  Thank you to the fabulous Jenn of Peas and Crayons for hosting the coolest part on the blogosphere.


This month is all about “sensible snacking” … but I didn’t do a very good job at taking photos of my snacks!  Next week I will do better, I promise 😉



I thought it would be fun this week to do a mother-daughter edition of “What I Ate Wednesday” so you can see what a typical day looks like in eats for both Emmie and I!  Keep in mind, homegirl nurses 4-5 times a day still too.  And also eats snacks.  Which I failed to picture.  FAIL.



Emmie: bananas and oatmeal mixed with applesauce

Me: baked banana and blueberry oatmeal with coffee


Work Out

Yesterday I ran an easy 3 miles on the treadmill.  I felt pretty good overall and did around a 9:45 minute pace.  Crazy how that’s “easy” for me now … I used to be such a 10 min+ mile runner!  It’s amazing what hard work and training will do :)  I also lifted back/biceps and worked my core.  Pretty sure I am going to be sore 😉



Emmie: roasted butternut squash, turkey, and avocados

Me: turkey sandwich on whole-wheat bread with spinach.  A nice Georgia peach on the side!



Emmie: Happy Bites Veggie Tots

Me: Chicken in lightened up mushroom and sage sauce over whole-wheat noodles


Overall I was happy with both mine and Emmie’s meals.  I am working hard and putting on my creativity cap to think of new meal ideas for Emmie.  If any of you have found something your tot loves let me know!!  I am trying to add some more variety to her life 😉


What’s your favorite healthy snack?
