What I Ate Wednesday

It thought it be fun to link up with Peas & Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday.


I got to sleep in just a little bit this morning and was somewhat rushed to get my run in before a scheduled playdate. First things first though, coffee and a banana (not pictured).

I went on a great 6 mile run during which the kids and I got DRENCHED by an unexpected rain shower. The run was quick for me, averaging 9:30 min/mi pushing the double jogger and by the time I got back I was ready for some breakfast. Today it was a banana & blueberry smoothie (almond milk, banana, peanut butter, flax seeds, chia seeds and blueberries).

After some fun at the playground and a trip to the grocery store we came home for lunch!

Split Pea Soup and a few slices of homemade, whole wheat french bread (this is leftover from dinner last night).

While standing in the pantry gathering stuff for dinner I grabbed a handful of chocolate chips – probably the worst food decision I made today.

The hubs came home relatively early so we got to enjoy a leisurely dinner. I made Ants in Trees and steamed some edemame.

It’s almost time for bed and I’m currently fighting the inner demons telling me to raid the pantry. 10 more post-partum pounds to loose! Focus, Joni. Focus!
