My first What I Ate Wednesday post & a HIIT treadmill workout!


I’m excited for my first “What I Ate Wednesday” post! Never heard of it? Head over to Peas & Crayons to find out what it’s all about…

My WIAW looked something like this…(From yesterday)

Breakfast: 1/4 cup steel cut oats, 1 tbsp. chia seeds, 1 tbsp. peanut butter, unsweetened vanilla almond milk (not pictured: a tumbler full of Starbucks coffee — mmm!)

Morning Snack: Banana

Lunch: Pepper quinoa with roasted vegetables and baby carrots

Afternoon Snack: 5.3 ounces of fat free vanilla greek yogurt, 1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese, 1/2 honeycrisp apple, granola (I was guest lecturing in a night class, so I had to find something with a lot of staying power to get me to 8 p.m. — luckily this was the perfect choice!)

Dinner: I had a great dinner with a friend and enjoyed a Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad (dressing on side!) and whole grain bread from Panera. One of my favorites!

Dessert: I was up on UD’s campus to teach my class, so I couldn’t leave without a stop to Yogo Berry, a favorite frozen yogurt shop! I had a little bit of vanilla, chocolate, and coffee frozen yogurt (my favorite!) topped with graham crackers, animal crackers, and a little bit of chocolate!

Today, I woke up at 5:45 a.m. and headed to the gym for what ended up being a great workout! I did a 30-minute HIIT workout on the treadmill that looked like this…

I followed it up with this 10-minute cardio & ab workout from Peanut Butter Fingers and another round of ab exercises. Needless to say, I was a crazy, sweaty mess by the time I left!
