Happy Wednesday, all!
Since I started blogging a little under a year or so, I’ve noticed that every Wednesday, I’m hungrier than most days. Today I realized that I can directly blame What I Ate Wednesday for keeping me fixated on all the delicious eats everyone shares! I honestly don’t think I can read any other WIAW posts without something to munch on without my inner hangry coming out.
So anyways, on to the food!
After sleeping like a dream, I woke up and parked myself in front of my laptop with a latte (x2) and a piece of homemade dark chocolate bark.
When my stomach had some time to wake up, I toasted up a whole wheat english muffin topped with fig jam (on one side) and a combination of the jam and Norwegian goat cheese on the other. Don’t judge it till you try it! The sweet and salty duo makes my heart sing :).
I spent the rest of the morning taking care of some blog-related things and replying to emails. I’m trying to update my “Contact Me” page and was able to get some social media sharing buttons to go at the top of my posts! I know they seem like small things, but making small progressive changes to Apple of My Eye always gets me excited! I also worked on creating a new pasta dish, which ended up being a delicious lunch!
I’ll be putting up the recipe soon, but I roasted the asparagus separately with garlic, which gave the recipe a special twist.
Around 5, I drove over to the gym with Kyle to get in a workout. After barely exercising for the last two weeks, it felt so great to be able to move! Before leaving my house, Kyle snapped a few pics of the new workout top I got for a steal ($14 including shipping!!!). I’m completely enamored by it and love the back! I might try sewing on some padding to the bust since it doesn’t offer too much support, but I don’t think it looks too off when I wear a bright colored sports bra underneath. The more obnoxious the colors for me, the better!
Since one of my readers (hi, Autumn!) requested I share some of my workouts, here’s my strength training routine for the day. Remember, I fine-tune my workouts for what works for my body and you should always be cleared by a doctor before starting up a new fitness routine! I’m not a licensed personal trainer and am just sharing what a typical day at the gym looks like for me.
I started off with 30 minutes of interval training on the elliptical and 10 minutes of biking before completing the following workout!
Dessert was leftover apple pie. Drool. I would honestly eat pie for every meal if I could!
So that pretty much sums up my day of eats! Lots of tasty food to help fuel my body and keep me going strong :).
Question of the Day: What’s the best thing you ate today?
