What I Ate Wednesday – Oat Mama Bars

What I Ate Wednesday – Oat Mama Bars

Good morning!

I know I’m so hit and miss with posting these days.  I’m definitely finding it harder to actually sit down to blog lately.  When I do get to sit, I’m usually nursing or holding Little Squish (the nickname he’s earned because he squishes up into a ball and squishes his face up) so I can’t do much typing.  As he gets bigger and we get more into a routine I’m hoping that changes…  For now I’m just soaking up all those cuddling moments 🙂

What I Ate Wednesday

What I Ate Wednesday

Happy humpday!

I’ve been loving Wednesday’s lately.  Half-way through another week of pregnancy!  Definitely on the count down these days.  Just about 4 weeks left!  Crazy right!?!  For some reason I have a feeling he’ll be arriving a week before but knowing my luck that won’t happen….  I’m keeping my fingers crossed though!

Anyway, since it’s Wednesday I thought I’d share a day of eats for a WIAW round-up.  I don’t do these all that often these days but they are fun to do every once in awhile.  So here’s a look of eats from the other day 🙂

Breakfast – The Hubby was home so made some eggs and sausage but all I wanted was a smoothie bowl.

Happy Wednesday!

Hope you’re all having a great week so far.  I always forget that February is a shorter month and that we really only have one week left of the month.  Which means I’m one week closer to the little dude arriving!  People keep asking me if we have names picked out or have started the nursery.  Answer is… Nope!  It’s funny how different things are this time around than last time.  As soon as we found out that The Love Nugget was going to be a boy, we started planning and getting the nursery ready.  I started buying clothes and we talked about the name probably everyday.  This time we’ve done nothing.  Okay I take it back not nothing.  We have talked about the name and cleaned out the room that will be the nursery.  But I haven’t been too ambitious to do anything else.  Even though I feel like I’ve still got a ways to go (4 months) until he arrives I know things are going to get busy here pretty quick and June will be here before we know it!

Switching gears to food now…  Here’s a peak at some eats from the other day.

Breakfast –

I’ve been on a smoothie kick lately and this one has been top of my list!

An Average Tuesday

An Average Tuesday

Hi guys!

I haven’t done a day in the life post for awhile so thought I’d share a peak into a full Tuesday for me lately.  Including some food because it is Wednesday and we tend to talk about food on Wednesdays around here 🙂

5:30 – Tuesday and Thursday I get to “sleep in”.  Meaning The Hubby’s alarm doesn’t go off at 4:40 waking me up.  I say sleep in sarcastically because my internal alarm clock still goes off between 5:00 and 5:30.  Lately every morning I wake up at 4:11 or 4:12.  It’s really starting to freak me out actually.  Thankfully I go right back to sleep but it’s so weird!

5:45 – I put on some workout clothes and head downstairs.  I seem to wake up hungry most mornings but don’t want to eat too much before a workout.  So I munch on one of my Nut Butter Bites and drink a big glass of water.

Happy Wednesday!

Woop woop!  We are looking at SEVERAL days of rain ahead of us which I’m not looking forward to.  Don’t get me wrong, we need the rain but I also need my sanity which I start to lose after being cooped up inside for days on end with a four year old…  Luckily we’ve got placed to go indoors where he can run around and play.  I’m already scheduling play dates to do so for next week to keep us both entertained!  Plus we spent the entire afternoon outside playing yesterday to stock up on the fresh, dry air 🙂

A Day in the Life + WIAW

A Day in the Life + WIAW

Good morning!

Hope everyone is having a great week.  December weeks sure do fly by don’t they?  All with fun stuff though!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a day peek into our lives so figured I’d share a little look into one of our days lately.  Some days are busier than others but this one was just an average day.

4:30am – Hubby’s alarm goes off to go to the gym.  I toss and turn trying to go back to sleep until 5:00am when I finally just get up.


I’ve had this pic on my phone forever and just love it!

WIAW Under the Weather

WIAW Under the Weather

Happy Wednesday!

I’m still not feeling all that great.  The Love Nugget’s cold germs spread to me and I’m hanging on to it 🙁  No bueno!  Hoping it’s gone by this weekend for Halloween fun!  AND have tons of fun planned for Halloween day.  Starting with a special workout I’ll be teaching at Afterburn,


I’m working on a Halloween themed playlist right now.  Any ideas?

Then we’re going to a fall festival at Growing Brilliant which is always a fun time.


A few years ago at the Growing Brilliant Fall Festival

Then home to shower, change and get ready for some fun with friends at one of our favorite local wineries.  


So fun that they are making it kid and adult friendly 🙂

After we have our fun there we are heading back to our house with friends for trick-or-treating, chili and just hanging out with my little fighter pilot 🙂


Hee hee 🙂

Anyway, that’s our Halloween plans!  So I’m resting and trying to get better by Saturday…  Wish me luck!

On another note, I thought I’d share a little of what I ate yesterday for today’s WIAW post!

I was up at 6:00am which is actually sleeping in for me.  I grabbed a few macadamia nuts and raisins, pounded a water then jumped into my 21 day fix leg workout.  Glad to have these 30 minute workouts on hand when I want something quick to do at home.  Since I wasn’t feeling all that great, I took it easy and was glad it wasn’t a cardio day.  By the time I was finished, The Love Nugget was up asking for breakfast.  So I made us both our breakfasts then sat down to eat with him.


A simple one this morning of Teeccino with organic heavy cream, a hard-boiled egg with avocado, a turkey apple sausage patty and a slice of my Paleo Pumpkin Bread.


I taught the morning classes at the gym and after ran into Target to grab a few things.  Which included a box of my favorite seasonal LARABAR.



After picking up The Love Nugget, we ran to Pressed Juice and Whole Foods to grab a few things for lunch.


I wasn’t feeling all that hungry so drank a juice, munched on some kale chips and an un-pictured Epic Bar.

A little later I drank the rest of my pressed juice and ate more kale chips for a snack.

We had a busy afternoon and by the time we got home it was time to make dinner and eat dinner.


Baked salmon, roasted kabocha and steamed broccoli.  Yum!

After, we finally carved some pumpkins something The Love Nugget has been looking forward to doing for weeks!


Although, he’s still not much of a helper on the actual carving part…  Which is why we went with the basic this time.  No stencils or fancy faces.  They still look good though!

I’m off to an acupuncture appointment this morning which I’ve been loving lately!  I’ll have to share more about it soon but I highly recommend it for any ailments you’re suffering from.  Or if you just need to de-stress and relax 🙂


  • Have you carved pumpkins yet this year?  
  • Have you tried acupuncture before?  Love it or hate it?  
  • What was something you ate yesterday?

Happy Humpday!

It’s been a much slower paced week so far around here which has been nice.  Although it’s been ridiculously hot again.  So much so that I think people are hiding indoors and avoiding even leaving their houses.  It’s been a slow week at Afterburn and yesterday no one showed up for my 8:30 class which was a bummer 🙁  I made the most of it by walking on the treadmill, and rowing with The Love Nugget since I had to wait around until my 9:45 class.

What I Ate Wednesday

What I Ate Wednesday

Hey guys!

As you read this I’m high in the sky on my way to Blogfest/Idea World Expo.  Hopefully my flight left on time at 5:25am because I literally have to land, hop in a cab and jam over to the convention center for Schwinn training.  Not sure I planned this the best way but fingers crossed it all works out!

Then tomorrow is the first day of Blogfest!  I’m excited but it’s definitely coming at a time that’s a bit stressful for us.  We are right in the middle of our infertility treatments and I even have to give myself injections while traveling.  Not ideal but gotta do what you gotta do!

On another note, it’s Wednesday and I haven’t done a WIAW post in several weeks.  BUT… Monday I actually remembered to snap photos of some eats so I’m joining Jenn for Wednesdays food filled shin dig!
