Happy Wednesday! Welcome back to another What I ate Wednesday. Hosted by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons. Big shocker for you today. I actually have a full day of meals instead of a random collection of meals from the week. This is huge right?!
This means I was very excited to get back to CrossFit Monday morning.
The WOD Monday was right up my alley! OTMEM (on the minute every minute) for 20 minutes.
- Even Minute: 3 Power Snatches
- Odd Minute: 6 Front Squats (From the floor)
Loved this! I used 75 for the snatches and 105 for the front squats and it was the perfect weight. I definitely felt the front squats that final round. I finished by working on my strict pull ups 2-3 every minute for 10 minutes (still using the band unfortunately).
Tuesday’s WOD was not up my alley! OTMEM
- Even Minute: 6 high box jumps
- Odd Minute: 8 chest to bar pull ups
Box jumps terrify me for some reason. I think it’s because I’m the worlds biggest klutz and have a tendency to wipe out on the box! You should see my shins. I started off at 24 inches though and went up to 24inches plus a 25 lbs plate on top for the last few rounds. No chest to bar pull ups for me left but I did string together my kipping pull ups into sets of 3 which is exciting for me. Pull ups are a major weakness!
Now onto yesterday’s meals…
Breakfast was a 2 ingredient pancake. Not really two ingredients though, in the mix was 2 eggs, 1 extra small banana, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a 1/2 tsp. vanilla. I topped it with a little sun butter.
I apologize for the ugliest picture ever!
I went to CrossFit and returned home to eat lunch and refuel. I had spicy chicken with spinach and bell peppers. The recipe is coming soon. It was perfect though and kept me full all afternoon.
Dinner was a full plate cause I was hungry! Paleo turkey meatloaf, roasted veggies, and roasted potatoes. The nutritionist in me got pretty excited too about this plate because it is the diagram of a balanced plate. 1/2 with vegetables, 1/4 of protein, and 1/4 starch or grains. Yes I know I’m crazy!
And that’s it….Pretty simple day of meals. I’ve been trying not to snack as often in between meals because I am such a snacker and have been feeling a lot more satisfied with well rounded Paleo based meals. They just keep me fuller.
So tell me…Are you a snacker or a 3 square meals eater??? I’m a little bit of both!
