What I Ate Wednesday {WIAW}

Good Morning!

 

WIAW

Happy Wednesday to you!  How about mixing it about and talking a little What I Ate Wednesday?  This day recap is from Monday.  Lately I’ve been really working on making sure to fuel and refuel appropriately to prepare for increasing my mileage.  I’ve been doing this with protein shakes which are quick, easy and full of nutrition which our bodies need to recover.

 

Post-workout

Banana Vanilla Shake .  After a workout it is very important to replenish within 30-45 minutes to help the muscles recover.  I used 1/2 a banana, Vanilla Shakeology, ice cubes and some water then sprinkled it with cinnamon.

 

Shake After

 

Breakfast

Coffee with whole wheat bagel with peanut butter and 1/2 banana.  I used the other half of the banana from my shake.  Bananas contain essential vitamins such as potassium, magnesium and B-6.  You have probably had a charlie horse or other muscle cramps sometime in your life and it’s highly likely that was due from a deficiency in potassium.  Runner’s especially can cause potassium deficiency I make sure to replace what I lost during running with bananas.  A banana has about 12% of our daily needs of potassium too!  Half of the body’s magnesium content is found in the bones and runners put a lot of stress on their bones during the impact of hitting the ground (or a treadmill in my case lately).  Vitamin B-6 is important for maintaining energy, support muscle activity during running.

Lunch

Green Smoothie.  I made this before work then just put it in the fridge to keep cold until lunch time.  I was running a bit late so my bagels were packed up and taken to work so I had lunch later than usual and this was perfect!

 

Shakeo

 

Dinner

Chili over a sweet potato with sour cream, cheddar cheese and crumbled blue chips from Trader Joes.  We actually had some chili in the freezer that I pulled out and made for a super quick and easy meal on a Monday.

Question of the day?

Do you make big batches of meals and put some in the freezer?  If so what is your favorite homemade freezer meal?

A Red Cup and Wire Labeling (day 9)

Hi there!

So we started the morning with a window repair then I went to school with Steve.  He requested my help testing wires and labeling them so that he can rewire one of the computers.  I was happy to help since organization is my specialty and I requested a stop at Starbucks for my first Peppermint Mocha of the season.

So I was a bit sore from Plyo yesterday and realized I haven’t had a “rest” day in awhile so today was a rest day.  I did take the dogs for a walk though.  Luckily the snow is pretty much gone and it warmed up a bit so we a had a great walk.  Here’s goofy Kenda “laying” on the couch. She cracks me up!
