Back To Normal (WIAW)

Now that snow days are ancient history (hopefully!) I feel like I am back to a regular schedule. Which means my typical food, for the most part. The one nice thing about being home more last week was being able to be more spontaneous about my food choices! (But really, most of the time I ate the same things as usual anyway.) This week I am back to being busy so I’m relying on my food prep and leftovers! 

breakfastOn Monday morning  I got up at 5 and did my PT stuff. I showered and wanted to eat something, but it was only 6am and I knew that I couldn’t eat my real breakfast that early. So I had a banana and a piece of Michele’s paleo blueberry cinnamon breakfast cake! Then around 7:30 I made eggs with spinach, bacon, and plantains. 

lunchLunch was a salad (I swear there’s spring mix under there!) with roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli with steak, drizzled with a little olive oil. Baby carrots and almond butter on the side. 


I wasn’t feeling very “snacky” today (is that a word? you know what I mean) but I grabbed one on Meredith’s fudge brownie bites before PT but couldn’t get a good picture. Dinner was leftovers that my parents sent home with us from the weekend! Roast beef, mashed potatoes, butternut squash, asparagus. Not my typically Monday night dinner but it was nice to not have to cook!


After dinner I had a brownie (something else sent home from my parents’ over the weekend). I also drank alot of Nuun….it was SO hot running on the Alter-G in PT and I was really thirsty for the rest of the night!

Do your food choices change based on how your schedule looks? 

Do you eat alot of leftovers?

What’s your favorite way to hydrate after a workout? 


I’m linking up with Arman this week…go see what everyone else has been eating lately!

    • I love to take advantage of leftovers for snacks! We saved some sweet potato fries from last night and they will be perfect for this afternoon!

  1. My meals definitely change with the seasons! So I can’t wait for spring to incorporate more salads. As for leftovers, I feel like I’m always eating them! I really don’t mind since it makes the day easier especially if it’s a meal I love!

    • I didn’t like them as a kid either! Maybe we appreciate them more now because we realize how much of a pain it is to cook:)

  2. Mmm! That brownie :-)

    If I am off my regular schedule, I am way more likely to eat differently. One thing I notice is I do not drink nearly enough water when I am not at work or on the weekends. It’s weird, since it is more readily available, I think it is just because I get wrapped up in doing a million other things!

    My favorite way to hydrate after a workout is with glutamine and GAT Martini Muscle Berry Blast Amino Acids. They taste like candy!

  3. My food choices definitely change as my schedule gets more or less hectic. The busier I am the easier it is to say, “let’s go out for dinner.” I did that a few too many times in February and definitely felt it come March – I was feeling bloated all the time. I hate that feeling!

    • I don’t like how I feel when I eat out all the time either! That’s why I prefer to cook whenever possible.

    • Ah I am not at all surprised that you are having those kinds of nightmares! It would be terrible if we ended up getting more snow!

    • My weekend meals are usually much different than during the week as well! It’s always a nice treat to be able to take home leftovers from my parents’:)

    • Now that I have realized how great it is to utilize leftovers I try to make extras too. It’s like cooking for multiple meals at once!

  4. Great eats! My food choices do change depending on my schedule…The busier I get and if I’m in some crazy cleaning frenzy I tend to eat horribly if at all. I try and eat most of my leftovers, but they get old after a while!

    • It’s so easy to forget to eat when you’re really busy! On days when I have a regular routine my hunger seems to strike right on schedule, so I usually don’t have that problem:)

  5. I have to admit, it took me awhile to get used to leftovers. When I was single, I almost never cooked because I hated eating the same meal over 2-3 times, and freezing stuff just wasn’t my thing. I’m much better now, although I do choose what I’m going to make based on its attractiveness the second time around. :-)

    • I know what you mean- some foods just aren’t as good as leftovers! I’ve been trying to figure out which ones work and which one’s don’t:)

  6. I rely heavily on leftovers. There is usually at least one night where we are all eating something different (leftover from different nights). It helps on those nights when I just don’t feel like cooking (that’s what microwaves are for). That roast beef looks gooooood. That’s something I like to make in the crockpot.

  7. I hope for everyone’s sake that this winter is kaput! I will be heartbroken if we go back to winter temps after the beautiful week we’ve had.
    I eat leftovers A LOT so it’s good that I like them! But it becomes a problem when I make extra food for leftovers, but end up eating it that night…whoops!
    #nuunlove for life!
