It’s Wednesday already?
I don’t know about you guys, but these weeks have been FLYING. Not that I mind too much because in my mind the faster the weeks go = the faster the holiday season arrives—but it’s still creeping me out! Does anyone else feel like the older they get, the faster the years pass by?
And if you don’t, would you mind sharing the fountain of youth with me?
Okay, before I get any weirder, let’s dig in to all the goodies that I ate yesterday via the What I Ate Wednesday party!
Breakfast (5:30 AM)- I didn’t have to go into work until the afternoon, but still woke up early so that I could make it to the polling area before the crowds went nuts. Even arriving 30 minutes before my precinct opened, I still had to stand in line for an hour and a half total, which apparently isn’t even that bad compared to some peoples’ 3+ hour wait (Will included).
My pre-voting fuel was pretty hefty—Two slices of brown rice toast slathered in peanut butter and a sliced banana half with two eggs cooked in coconut oil on the side.
Served with the rest of my banana half + more peanut butter.
Then it was voting time!
Luckily I brought Mockingjay with me so the wait wasn’t bad at all. Not to mention that the people-watcher in me had a blast listening to all the conversations that were going on.
Workout (8:30 AM)- After returning from the polling place, I went for a 3 mile run/walk around my neighborhood. My running stamina is NOTHING like it once was, but I still enjoy easy peasy jogs whenever I feel the urge.
Lunch (11:00 AM)- Yep, I totally ate lunch at 11:00 AM and I have no shame
A little before noon I threw together a stir fry of brussels sprouts, red onion, spinach, garlic and crumbled turkey bacon, all cooked in more coconut oil.
Followed by a rice cake + Sunbutter and a pre-work cup of coffee with Hazelnut coconut milk creamer.
Snack (2:30 PM)- I had packed up some veggies to take with me to snack on at work and tactfully ate them from the inside of my purse
while rocking my “I voted today” sticker on my lab coat.
Aaaand this photo totally reestablishes the current urge I have to cut my hair again. Should I do it!?!
Dinner (5:00 PM)- Work ended earlier than usual so that everyone could go vote, so I came home around 4:30 to a sleeping Popcorn
and a bigggg salad. And I mean BIG.
This monster contained just about everything I could think to throw into it: Romaine, mixed greens, roasted honey gold potatoes, avocado, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, tomatoes, sliced turkey, turkey bacon pieces, goat cheese, and cilantro. It was gloooorious!
Snack (7:00 PM)- Another rice cake with cottage cheese and Sunbutter. Never gets old, my friends
I wasn’t lying when I said that nut butter made up it’s own food group yesterday and I’m definitely not complaining about it either.
In fact, that reminds me that iHerb will most likely be getting a new Sunbutter order from me verryyy soon. Has anyone tried the version with added flax or the organic variety?
A bit to think about: What’s your favorite nut butter?
