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?

    1. Next time we are in TX I am taking you up on that offer 😉

  1. YAY for birthday week!

    Loved this edition! We make yogurt drops at our house and Jordyn loves them. I just put some yogurt in a ziploc bag, cut a tiny bit of the corner off and put drops of yogurt on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. I popped the cookie sheet in the freezer and let them freeze. Once they’re frozen they make a great snack for Jordyn.

    We also give her yogurt dipped berries, and cut grapes in half and give them to her. I don’t worry about peeling peeling the skin off them but she’s 16 month old.

    I have to say, you totally just gave me some major motivation. Right now I’m in the 10+ mile club and sometimes I get frustrated (and sometimes my time can be even higher) but it’s great to know that you were there and have worked your way to where I would like to get to and love to call that an easy run. How long did it take you to get to that point and how many days and/or miles did you run?

    1. GREAT ideas!! I run 4-5 times a week. I really cut my time during my last 1/2 marathon training by incorporating speed work into my training. Consistent running and speed work is definitely what worked for me. Since I was training for a 1/2 I progressively worked up to it! Now I average 10-15 miles a week :) Let me know if you want to get together and run! There’s a great 3.5 mile loop here in RH 😉
