What I Ate Wednesday

Wednesday, October 21, 2015
Yesterday was a big day over here!!! After 6 weeks I was finally cleared to run! Granted, it was only one mile...as a test. But hey, it was running!

Overall, it felt amazing to get back out there! No pelvic discomfort whatsoever! 
Running yesterday, at 31 weeks pregnant, did feel very different from my last comfortable run, 6 weeks ago. I guess 23 extra pounds will do that to you. I was getting some braxton hicks contractions and I was definitely moving slowww. 

I'm not trying to win any races anytime soon...so slow is okay with me. As long as I'm still moving. 

This afternoon I go back to my chiropractor to see how my pelvis held up on the run, and to get the final word on if I can run again today! 

Today's WIAW is themed OMG I'm so hungry, what can I make and shove into my mouth in the next 4 minutes???!!! This baby is demanding meals be big, delicious and quickly available. 

Breakfast: Grilled Zucchini and Eggplant (from last nights dinner), Arugula, Tahini, Sourdough Toast, topped with Hemp Seeds. 

Lunch: Massive Salad. Spinach, Arugula, Tomato, Cucumber, Pumpkin Seeds and a Quinoa Blackbean Burger on top. 

Snack: Extremely brown banana that I didn't want to go to waste. Mushy and delicious.

Lunch #2: Oatmeal, Walnuts and Blackberries. 

Dinner: Sauteed Tofu, Crockpot Sweet Potato, Spinach Salad, more Zucchini and Eggplant.

Obviously I haven't reached that point in pregnancy where you can't fit much into your stomach. 

Snack {AKA It's 9pm and I feel like I haven't eaten}: Coconut milk yogurt, blueberries and cheerios. 


I had to go to bed within 2 hours of the yogurt, otherwise I would have been hungry again. 
Kidding. We all know I have no problem waking up in the middle of the night to eat. I can thank Ironman training for introducing me to that. 

Happy Wednesday Friends!

What are you eating today? 

Do you eat exceptionally brown bananas to avoid wasting them? 


  1. I must confess I totally toss brown bananas. Luckily they are relatively cheap as far as fruit goes.

    1. You know what's funny...I won't throw out a $.49 brown banana, but if an avocado is at all brown I just can't bring myself to eat it. Those suckers are like $1.50. Maybe I should get my priorities in order ;)
