It's a Sweaty What I Ate Wednesday!

Today is one of my rest days from the gym- Yes, you read that right, one of my rest days. I'm on week 14 of the Body Earned program and we're only lifting 4 days a week, so I have 3 rest days to play around with! I decided to go to yoga before work this morning because I love the hotyasa class and I figured although I love ending my day with yoga, starting with it sounded like a good idea, and it was! Nothing like getting a serious sweat going before the sun comes up!


I'm still amazed by how much I actually sweat, I'm definitely not used to it! I've also been feeling a little less lean than I would like to, I think it's all the vacationing catching up to me. My plan is to keep working hard, listening to my body, and keeping it clean and alcohol free until I feel like myself again.

I started off my eats yesterday with a 2 egg white, one egg omelette and 2 slices of Ezekiel Toast with coconut oil, cinnamon and Truvia. I read on Michelle LeSeuer's Facebook page that it's best to eat yolks when they're still a little runny, so I crack my whole egg and then my egg whites and cook like an omelette. 

Snack was the usual cottage cheese with cinnamon and Truvia, and a slice of zucchini bread. I love putting the cottage cheese on top!


Leftovers for lunch! Two steak roll ups over brown rice. This was awesome.


I was lazy on Sunday and didn't make my typical turkey burgers (I think I'll do that tonight) so tuna has been my go-to. This is mixed with a little greek yogurt and mustard and I ate it with raw veggies.


You're going to laugh when you see my dinner.... yes, sushi! Actually, just a few pieces of sashimi (I only ate the salmon, the yellowtail tasted fishier than normal) and a side salad with amazing ginger dressing. I don't know what's in the dressing or how they make it, I just know it's darn good. 


I wrapped up the night with some casein pudding with 1T all natural peanut butter and cinnamon.


Happy Wednesday!

  1. I think you're looking quite lean...and your abs look fantastic! I've been trying to get to hot yoga for months now, only 1 studio around me class times just don't jive with my schedule. Glad you're enjoying it...I saw that on Michelle's FB as well, I would love to do the runny yolk thing but it has always freaked me out. My sis got salmonella when we were younger, I guess that's why....I need my eggs super dry!

  3. Hey Girl!! Gonna be 2 weeks behind you on second part of James's program. I had my brother's wedding this past week so I am making this week my rest week then staring W13 on Monday. How is it so far? Wondering on your second meal how much Cottage cheese you do? I think I saw somewhere that you aim for 1500 cal's a day which is what I do so I was wondering what amounts you were shooting for in that second meal. For some reason I have a hard time with meal 2 and 4.

  6. I absolutely love ezekiel bread with coconut oil, stevia, and cinnamon. Tastes exactly like cinnamon toast from childhood. It also is great with a little pumpkin pie spice.

  11. Hello, so I am trying to experiment with my cooking and I was wondering what you used for certain substitutions and what equals what (measurement wise). First, I noticed that you use Greek yogurt in your recipes a lot, what are you usually sub'ing this for? And butter? Oil? Sweetened condense milk? Plain old sugar? Any help would be appreciated, I would love to "remake" some recipes!

    1. Generally, you can sub out butter and oil for applesauce, greek yogurt, or pumpkin. I honestly don't know what condensed milk is so I'm not much help there, but you can sub Truvia, Stevia, or Xylitol for sugar and almond milk for regular milk. I usually sub 2 egg whites for whole eggs. Hope that helps!
