What I Ate Wednesday

Today is the first rest day in Ashley Conrad's program, and although you know I'm not a fan of them I'm taking full advantage today because I did something funky to my knee. I think I did it on Sunday during leg day, but it has been bugging me since then and I think I just need to let it rest. I remember something similar happening last year and it went away with a little ice and time off, so that's the plan for today and hopefully it feels better tomorrow. Yesterday was cardio and abs and although 25 minutes of cardio didn't sound like much fun, it actually went by really quickly and it torched calories! Gotta love that! 

Here's what yesterday's eats looked like! 

1. Since it was cardio day, I didn't want to have a full breakfast in my stomach while sprinting, so I had 1/2 a protein shake and one of my banana muffins to fuel me but not stuff me. 
2. Then, I came home to a glorious bowl of egg white oats with blueberries. 
3. The usual- cottage cheese, peanut butter, cinnamon, and 1/2 a quest bar crumbled on top. 
4. Taco salad made with bison meat and topped with black beans, almond cheese and avocado. 
5. I made some plain shredded chicken on Sunday so I had that with avocado and hot sauce for my afternoon snack. 
6. And lastly for dinner, Ezekiel breaded chicken with roasted green beans and almonds. I LOVE my green beans this way! 

We stayed up later than normal last night since today is our rest day, so I also had a scoop of casein before bed. 


  1. Are you only following Ashley's workouts and not the diet?

  2. Never underestimate the power of RICE for injuries!(Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation).

    I had my first true leg day of Body Earned this morning, and decided after reading enough of your leg day posts to add extra carbs PWO. I've still been ravenously hungry all day! You were NOT kidding.

  3. B thank you for posting your meals, they are helping me out so much with portion control and giving me a clear understanding of what clean eating is. I love all your recipes and ideas. I just tried your cottage cheese with peanut butter and cinnamon but instead of the bar I used almonds, let me just say, something happened in my mouth that never happened before. All my favorites in one, just plain AWESOME! My new FAVORITE snack,thanks to you! :) please keep up, it motivates me A LOT!

  4. I love that all of your eats are simple while being clean and delicious. Because really, who wants to spend hours in the kitchen everyday. You always give me great ideas for meals. Thanks for sharing little B!

  5. I seriously love following your blog, FB, Instagram. :) Promise im not a stalker. You just inspire me. I love your honesty in all your posts and all your knowledge your share about fitness and nutrition.
