Happy WIAW everyone! Half way through the week already, bring on the weekend! I'm actually headed for a night out to Bangor with both my sister and Iestyn on Saturday, something I haven't done in awhile and I'm really looking forward to it, I just need to figure out what to wear!
For today's WIAW I will be sharing what I ate on Monday. Monday morning I dragged myself out of bed at 6.30 to get to CrossFit. I really feel for you that have to get up that early, or even earlier, every day, I am just not a morning person! Before leaving the house I ate my first breakfast of half a Trek cocoa oat bar, and a gala apple. Apologies as these went un-pictured, but I really don't function well in the mornings.
Once the WOD was over I headed into work where I made myself a second breakfast to eat at my desk: two slices of avocado bread topped with almond butter and blueberries. This would of been lovely if the flaxseeds hadn't gone rancid like I mentioned yesterday, but thankfully the blueberries made it just about edible, as I was hungry and had no other options for breakfast at work, and I can't function when hungry!
My morning snack was the other half of the Trek Cocoa Oat bar with a mug of tea. These bars are so indulgent!
Lunch was leftovers from the night before, lamb mint meat balls with spinach, rocket, cherry tomatoes and a mint and cucumber yogurt dip.
Mid afternoon I ate a pink lady, which also escaped the camera.
For dinner I had a treat planned: steak! I was actually eating alone so I thought I'd treat myself, sorry Iestyn! I always feel a bit lost when it comes to cooking steak, I haven't got a clue what the different cuts are, or what the best way to cook a steak is, but I figured that the only way to get better is to practice! This one was almost perfect, it was just cooked slightly too long as I would of liked it slightly more pink: I'll do better next time! Alongside the steak I had red onions, mushrooms and asparagus, as well as a spoonful of mustard. I really should eat steak more often, it is more expensive than other cuts of meat, but it never disappoints!
With my evening mug of tea I could not resist one of these Orange Coconut Macaroons. There might not be very many left...!
For those of you who exercise in the mornings, do you have two breakfast's? Who have a policy at the Box that we have to eat before a morning WOD, or else! However there is no way I will get up any earlier to eat a bigger breakfast, so I tend to eat a snack before going, and then something else again once I get to work.
What is the best thing you ate today? Before this morning's CrossFit session I had a slice of seeded bread, spread with almond butter, and topped with fresh strawberries: sounds lovely doesn't it?
