It's That Time Again... What I Ate Wednesday!

I actually contemplated taking a break from WIAW just because to me it seems like it may get boring, eventually (even though I can sit on Peasandcrayons.com and read WIAW's for hours and hours). However, I get so many messages and emails from you all about how much you love these posts so, we shall proceed! I was recently asked about how I manage to get out the door and to work by 8:30am and what my routine looks like, so I figured I would add that in to this post. My routine has actually changed since starting the Body Earned program, and I can't really go in to that without giving away some of the details of the program, so I'll just explain how I typically do things and hopefully that will be helpful!

4:45am- alarm goes off (actually Benny Benassi goes off... there's no better way to wake up than to a little house music :) ) 

5:00am- Breakfast is eaten- usually egg whites scrambled with veggies (pre cut) and then Ezekiel toast or oats. 

5:00am- 5:30am- Catch up on emails, social media, and watch the morning news! 

5:30-5:45am- Get dressed for the gym, drink my amino energy and get B to stop playing with Charley long enough to get out the door. 

6am-7am- GYM! 

7:15/7:30am- PWO shake 

7:30-8:00am- shower and get dressed (I'm actually really quick!) 

8:00-8:15- Throw my 3 meals that will be eaten at work in my lunch bag and head out the door. I'm lucky that I only live about 10 minutes from work, and if I make all the green lights I usually have time for a Starbucks pit stop!





Yesterday's food looked like this:






Here's a quick run through of everything:
- Egg whites and Oats
-Cottage cheese with oats
- Salmon and baked green beans
-Zucchini Turkey burger and broccoli/cauliflower
- Chicken Fajitas
-Egg whites and avocado 
As you can see, I swapped out my casein for egg whites... no particular reason, just trying new things :)

BTW sorry for the lame-o pictures, definitely off my game!

  2. Wow you get ready fast! Do you set out your clothes and wash your hair the night before?

  3. Your morning routine is very similar to mine because my alarm also goes off at 4:45 AM. I do my best to get up, dressed, and to the gym by 5:30. I normally eat a homemade protein bar and drink a protein shake on the way to the gym. I have to be done with my workout by 7, shower/dress and be at work by 8 though (my drive is at least 30 minutes). Although it's a challenge sometimes to get up and get all of this accomplished by 8, I love this routine and like the fact that my workout is done for the day. Thanks for sharing and please continue with your WIAW posts.

  4. Brittany please don't stop posting your WIAW's! I LOVE your food ideas and everything always looks so yummy. If I ever get my stuff together I have a blog that is in the "being built stage" but I am horrible with technology and have a hard time simply trying to post pics on FB LOL!! Getting my blog going is one of my goal's this year. Stepping out of my comfort zone's slowly but surely. I'm taking the tortoise approach. Started James's program was hard to do but I am so GLAD I did. So I am learning change is good! Have a great day girl and once again thank you for all your help and motivation :0). BTW those Fajitas look SO GOOD!!!

  9. For your cottage cheese and oats, do you just top with dry oats or cook then first?
