Hey there, friends! Today I’m coming at you with another edition of What I Ate Wednesday, my favorite way to share what I’ve been eating lately. It looks like Laura from Sprint 2 the Table is helping Jenn with the hosting today. Thanks, Laura!

Today we’re taking a look at Monday’s eats and workout. Let the WIAW fun begin!

Workout

Monday morning began with a 6:00 am spin class at Revolve.   I don’t know about you, but I always like to get a really good workout in on Mondays to set myself up for a successful week.

Revolve is one of the studios on my ClassPass plan, and since my podiatrist finally gave me the ok to incorporate spinning into my fitness routine again, I obviously jumped right in. Since I still can’t run or do anything high impact, I’m planning to rely on spinning for my main form of cardio while my foot finishes healing (five more weeks!).

I had been to Revolve once before (you can read my full review of the class here), and like last time, I loved it.

It had been so long since I had a workout that really made me sweat like that, so I was literally on cloud nine as I huff and puffed away on my bike. (Swimming just isn’t quite the same.) This studio is also really close to my apartment, so I’m sure I’ll be back again really soon!

Breakfast #1

Once I got home, I quickly downed a glass of green juice and stretched my legs a bit more.

This batch was made with celery, cucumber, ginger, lemon, apples, kale, spinach, pineapple and mango. The pineapple and mango gave this batch a really delicious and sweet taste. Yum!

I also re-hydrated by finishing off the rest of the water in my water bottle. 🙂

Breakfast #2

Once I had showered/cleaned up, it was time for breakfast #2! I decided to make a two-ingredient pancake to use up one of the overripe bananas in our fruit basket. (See my tips for making a two ingredient pancake here.)

Why yes, that is the sleeve of my fluffy white bathrobe, thank-you-very-much. 😉

When it was done, I slathered some peanut butter on top and dug in while watching the Today show.

Delicious!

Lunch

Like clockwork, my body was ready for lunch at 12:15. I headed to the kitchen at work to heat up some leftover brown rice and curried chicken, and throw some dressing on a side salad.

The curried chicken was actually a premade meal from Costco that Fabio and I had for dinner one night last week alongside some rice. It was really tasty, and next time I’m at Costco I’m planning to pick up another container for nights when we have a lot going on and need a quick dinner. It was so good!

Snack

I got hungry again around 3:30 (again, like clockwork) so I dug into a blueberry Chobani.

I wish I had had some granola to throw in there, but it was still good by itself.

Dinner

For dinner I made a stir fry!

Included in the mix was quinoa, chicken, broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, onions, and garlic. It was all tossed together in a yummy Thai sriracha peanut sauce we had leftover from making these cauliflower lettuce wraps.

It was so good and even though I was expecting to have leftovers to take for lunch, Fabio and I both wound up having seconds so there wasn’t enough left. Womp womp. That’s how you know it was a good dinner though!

Question of the day: What do you do to set yourself up for a successful week?

In addition to getting a good workout Monday morning, I use Sundays to set myself up for a good week by cleaning the apartment, planning our meals, and buying our groceries. Sometimes I’ll also put together bases for lunch salads, but not always. 😉

  1. Glad you got a good spin session in. Spinning is no joke! It’s hard hard hard.
    For me my week is set up by having a clean house, lunches prepared and a meal plan for the week. Then I feel the world is right haha.

  2. I wish I was able to take a class or get to the gym first thing in the morning (especially on a Monday). I think it’s such a great way to jumpstart your day! Sadly my alarm already goes off early enough as it is (5:30am), just so I can make it to work on time, so somehow I dont think I could get up even earlier for a workout! I do try to prepare for the week by getting my grocery shopping, meal planning and maybe even a little meal prep done on Sundays.

  3. i’m on the same schedule train! i tend to eat lunch around 12:30/1 and then need a snack around 3-4. also spend much of sunday gearing up for the week! and like to knock out a speed session on monday to get it OVER with 🙂

  4. I have a similar schedule as well – I can’t get through the afternoon without a snack!

  5. Those 2 ingredient pancakes- definitely need to give it a try!

  6. Yum:) Looks like a good day!

  7. I missed what happened to your foot but that’s awesome that you can do spin now! I’m recovering from knee surgery and can’t do anything yet except PT exercises. I bet it’s a good feeling to get some nice cardio in!
