WIAW #2

Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday #2

Peas and Crayons
Breakfast-Whole Wheat Sourdough toast, Avocado, Egg, Fruit Salad
Close up of fruit salad- apple, banana, orange, strawberry, basil


Post workout snack- Greek yogurt with muesli

Lunch-Coconut banana muffin... or 2 :)


Dinner- 2 slice chicken tomato spinach pizza
Snack- Blue Menu Peach Greek Yogurt Smoothie Popsicle

Umm.. where's the veggies? I like WIAW for that reason- I can see what I ate, and what I forgot to eat! Today I will be making more of an effort to get some vegetables in my belly!

As for the workout part, I have finished 3 days of Jamie Eason's Livefit Trainer. Today was legs day, and the workout consisted of:

 15 min Elliptical Warm-up
3 sets of 12 reps of all exercises:
Leg Press
Leg Extensions
Wide Stance Barbell Squat
Seated Leg Curl
Standing Calf Raises
Seated Calf Raises

I also did the hammer curls and standing bicep cable curls that I didn't quite get to yesterday- I got scared away from the weight room by a large gathering of muscle men waiting to use the equipment I was on. I know I should have just finished up, but I was tired and it was a good excuse to leave!

Its been a while since I did a leg workout... in fact I had never even used some of the machines at my new gym before. Some of their equipment was older, and took me a while to figure out.

When I got home from the gym I decided to try my luck at a short 2km walk/run. My foot hasn't bothered me since I got it worked on, so I decided to give it a go... and it was a success! I ran half and walked half and my foot felt awesome! I'm planning on hitting the track tomorrow morning for a slow jog session before livefit day 4, so we'll see how that goes. I still haven't made a decision on whether or not I am going to do the triathlon in Invermere this weekend. I'll probably end up deciding on Friday night.

I'm heading out to enjoy the sunshine now, hope everyone has a great day!

  1. good luck with your run tomorrow! I am so bad about strength training; I pretty much just rely on boot camp for that.

    1. I have avoided strength training for way too long, other than the occasional Jillian Michaels video. I feel so weak, but I'm looking forward to (hopefully) seeing some progress!

  2. That pizza looks delicious!! I don't know how you stuck with 2 slices, it would be so hard not to devour all of it! :)

    1. Oh my goodness, it was fantastic! It took a lot of willpower not to demolish the entire thing :)
