what i ate wednesday

happy wednesday!

Yesterday was full of activity so I’ll just jump right into it. Lot’s of great food and good sweat sessions.


First I have to share with you my last two workouts. Monday’s workout left my arms and legs feeling like jello, and Tuesday’s was basically a giant shake-out for my whole body: lot’s of running and core work.


ImageNow the best part of the week: What I Ate Wednesday!



Kashi GoLean cereal topped with cinnamon and bananas. Served along with two cups of coffee that, for some reason, left me so jittery! I guess I spoke too soon saying caffeine doesn’t have much effect on me.

After breakfast I decided to throw together a crockpot dinner for later. Fall always makes me want to use the crockpot. It’s so easy

Before lunch I did some serious grocery shopping.


 Highlights included:

  • Annie’s Organic mac n cheese — Arthur shapes!
  • Key lime greek yogurt
  • String cheese (current snack obsession)
  • Horned melon
  • Granny smith apples and unsweetened apple sauce — perfect for Fall

Aren’t groceries pretty? 🙂


The highlight of my day was lunch because I got to grab a quick meal with Zman.  We were lucky enough to spend a few hours together before he left for a few days to mourn the loss of his grandmother with his family in Dallas.  I’ve been wanting to take him to an awesome bbq place in my town and since he hardly ever has the chance to make it out to the suburbs, yesterday was the day.

I really enjoyed my afternoon taking care of some errands with Zman and driving him to the airport, but by the time I got home the last thing I wanted to do was think about making dinner.  Thank goodness for the crockpot!

IMG_3096I prepared one of my favorites: shrimp creole!  Recipe will come later this week.  It’s a delicious combination of peppers, onions, celery, shrimp, crushed tomatoes, along with paprika and other spices. Incredibly healthy and satisfying when served over brown rice.

IMG_3097Dessert went unpictured but let’s just say I’m doing a great job getting rid of a stash of tootsie rolls that I found in the pantry.

I’m working hard on a project for work today so wish me luck! Enjoy your day–the week is halfway over wooo!


  • Do you use a crockpot?  If so, what’s your favorite recipe?
