Woo!! It’s Wednesday! Time is flying while I am home in Arizona and I am soaking up this next week before I head back to Chris and the pups in Savannah. We have been cooking a lot of our meals at my mom’s house which is helping me stay on track this vacation. “What I Ate Wednesday” helps for accountability too 😉 Thank you Jenn for hosting another fabulous week of WIAW!
Egg+egg whites scrambled with spinach and some cheese. A Van’s protein waffle with PB and half a grapefruit. Starbucks Via iced coffee on the side.
Mom, Emmie, and I hit up one of my favorite restaurants in Phoenix, Babbo Italian Eatery. They always serve fresh bread with olive oil and balsamic. My mom and I decided to split the pasta martini: penne served with creamy marinara, vodka, chicken, artichokes, garlic, and kalamata olives. YUM.
After a heavier lunch we were in the mood for a light and healthy dinner. I made my mom, step-dad, and I salad beasts. In the beast was kale, romaine, spinach, chicken, boiled eggs, tomato, avocado, peppers, broccoli, cucumber, and carrots. I had mine with a spoonful of roasted red pepper hummus and some balsamic vinaigrette. We also had sweet potatoes on the side.
I took the last two days as rest days. My legs were pretty tired and needed a break. Back to the gym today! I am thinking a run and lifting weights for shoulders and legs. Also need to get some core work in
Hope you all have a great Wednesday! Thanks for all your comments on the Lululemon fuel belt I got. Seems like several of you were interested in getting one
When do you know it’s time for your body to have a rest day?
