Happy Wednesday day everyone, we have made it halfway! Can you believe that in a week it will be February already?! Today I am back with my Full Day of Eating! Now that I am somewhat settled in my school schedule, my eating schedule is a bit different. Unfortunately, my stomach doesn’t seem to like it, I can’t stop being hungry! I’m hoping that it’ll pass soon because I am feeding it plenty of yummy and delicious food! Now let’s get on with the (somewhat) pretty pictures of food!
Coffee w/ creamer and protein powder
Lately I have been starting my day with a coffee protein smoothie. My sister gave me this, Starbucks® Natural Fusions Vanilla, Flavored Ground Coffee (11oz)(3 pack), for Christmas and I was pleasantly surprised how much vanilla flavor is in it. So obviously the logical thing to do was to add even more vanilla to it. I have been doing 2 servings of my Vanilla creamer and 1 scoop of Muscle Milk Vanilla Protein powder. It surprising keeps me full for a few hours, something that seems to rarely been happening lately.
More coffee w/ skim milk and cinnamon
I totally misjudged how hungry I would be by mid day and how long I would get stuck on campus for. I ended up going to the Starbucks on campus for some coffee to hold me over till I could get back to my dorm. They had cinnamon sitting out with the milk and cream so I decided to try some in my coffee. It was actually really good! I might make this a reoccurring thing!
Grilled Cheese + carrots + apple + left over cauliflower potato salad + water
Finally some solid food! Lunch was a variety of different food I had lying around. On Sunday I tried out a Cauliflower Potato salad recipe, coming soon!, and have been eating left overs from that since then. You really cant go wrong with a classic grilled cheese and some simple fruits and veggies for lunch!
Zone perfect protein bar
During work I started to get a little peckish so I pulled out the emergency protein bar I always keep in my backpack. It was a perfect pre-workout snack to fuel my cardio for the day.
Workout: 5:00 Cardio
Tuesdays and Thursdays are my cardio days and boy do we have a love hate relationship. Luckily on Tuesdays I have The Bachelor and ANTM to catch up on. Those 45 minutes really fly by when your distracted by cat fights and cat walks 😉
Pasta + Marinara + Chocolate Protein Smoothie + (Not Pictured) Hard Boiled Egg
Dinner was some pasta and a protein smoothie. I have been trying to get better at not wasting food and one of the biggest things I can never eat fast enough is pasta sauce. So I have been making sure to try and eat it more often after I have opened the jar. Post dinner was a chocolate protein smoothie. I wish I would have made it with milk instead of water, #cheapcollegestudentprobs, because it would have tasted exactly like ice cream! I also had a hard boiled egg because protein!
Chocolate Greek yogurt + Reese’s Puffs
If you don’t eat dessert what’s the point of eating all the veggies? I love to end my day with a little something sweet. This time it was a chocolate Greek yogurt with Reese’s Puffs piled on top. It probably wasn’t the smartest idea cause they all tried to make a run for it!
Besides eating, my day was filled with lots of little homework/beginning of class stuff to do. Its only the second week of school and already I feel like I have so much work to do. I guess thats what its like when your basically taking 7 courses, oh man what did I get myself into!
I hope you all have a lovely Wednesday!
