What I Ate Wednesday + Recipe Fail

It's that time again! A peek into what my hodgepodge meal plan of the day looks like. As you can see from the photo on the bottom right, my 'chicken and rice soup' didn't quite come out as I had imagined.. ha! I didn't get home from training until about 8 last night and on my way home I called B to ask how the soup was. He said it tasted great but that it wasn't very soupy which just made me think it would be almost more like a stew than a soup. Well, not quite. In my head I had imagined the rice cooking in the pot like it would normally cook on the stove but instead it soaked up literally all 6 cups of chicken broth and turned to mush. Much to my surprise though it still tasted really good! Almost like a mix between soup and stuffing- it doesn't look very appetizing but I'm about to eat my second serving of it (insert monkey covering eyes emoji here)! Just one of MANY recipe fails seen in my kitchen. 

Breakfast- Egg whites with turkey pepperoni and two slices of Dave's Killer Bread 
PWO- MRM Chocolate protein shake 
Lunch- Tuna mixed with mustard and lots of sweet pickles and Way Better brand black bean chips. I love these with tuna and they have great ingredients in them and a good fiber to carb ratio too. 
Snack- Quest bar and Coffee 
Dinner- Chicken and rush mush lol 

* Don't forget to take advantage of my online training sale- available through Friday! 

Vívofit 2

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Garmin through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about vívofit 2, all opinions are my own.

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays upon us, it’s no secret our health and fitness goals can easily fall to the wayside. It’s important to keep up on workouts and nutrition throughout the holidays to avoid starting the year off wondering what happened to all your hard work, and using an activity tracker is the perfect way to do this. The vívofit2 makes sure that you stay moving in the most convenient way possible. All of your stats are available right from your wrist and it even lets you know when your activity level has been low so that you can get up and get moving.

 With my sleep issues in full swing lately, one of my favorite features of this device is the sleep monitoring which tells you how long you slept and breaks it down into awake, light, and deep sleep. This helps me when I’m trying to pinpoint things I do or don’t do before bed and the way they effect my sleep and also helps show just how many times I’m waking up during the night. I’ve been wearing the vívofit 2 every day and it’s great because the battery lasts a full year so I never have to worry about charging or taking it off at all because it’s completely water proof too.

The stopwatch feature is really handy at the gym for timing my rests between sets and also for tracking my steps, distance and how many calories I burned during a specific workout. It’s super light and not too big so it never gets in the way, and the interchangeable bands allow Mrs Matchy Matchy (me!) to coordinate with my outfit, a must obviously!

I’m so excited it’s finally cool here in Arizona and I can continue wearing my vívofit 2 on all the awesome hikes we do this fall and winter. It’s going to really help keep me moving through the holidays so that I can indulge in some of my favorite treats guilt free!
