This is my second WIAW and thanks Jenn for the Link up!
I woke up early today and went for a long soccer run. This is where I go down the beach dribbling, shooting the soccer ball at the dunes and pretend like I’m actually good at it
I went about 3.4 miles in about 30 minutes. It wasn’t fast but I was changing direction and zig zagging a lot, which I think makes it a better workout..
I came back and got ready for work. At the office I had a feast of my Amino1 with Ginger brew and 2 clementines, 2 cereal protein balls, and 1 VitaFiber protein bar.
Around 10:30 I was hungry again and made an Openfaced PB2 and Sugar free jelly on Light whole grain bread. This is so good. I’m so disappointed when it’s over.
Then I got hungry again around 3, naturally. Any morning I run, I’m a garbage disposal the rest of the day! I ate a few more cereal protein balls- I didn’t have a picture, but this was the whole batch. I only ate a few.
Then for dinner, we had a cheese plate of delicious cheeses from Trader Joes- gorgonzola blue, bacon cheddar, and another blue.
Followed by roasted butternut squash and sweet potato with goat cheese. SO DELICIOUS AND FILLING. I get why the French consider cheeses to be dessert at the end of a meal.

Thank you Jenn for the link-up!
This is my first WIAW and I’m kind of excited. Unfortunately, these are my Tuesday eats, but there’s lots of goodies in there
For something in my stomach before I workout I made an almond-coconut milk cappuccino and took a mix of ginger brew, water, and Amino 1 (pineapple mango flavor is the best!) to spin.
Naturally, after spin, I’m starving by the time I get to the office 45 minutes later. However, I found the most amazing WHOLE GRAIN cinnamon raisin British muffins at Trader Joes. (I love how Trader Joes decided English muffins were out of style) I topped one of those bad boys with egg whites and shredded Fat Free cheese from Kraft.
Now thanks to MyFitnessPal, I’m starting to get my office snacking under control. No more grazing! (If you’re on MFP, add me, KellythXC)
So for lunch I had Hungry-Girl’s Cheeseburger Mac Attack, left over from Superbowl. Seriously, this is an AMAZING crock pot recipe that I think everybody should make and have prepared for the week. Low calorie, full of fiber, and full of protein.
Around 3, I always start to get really hungry, but this time I was prepared with a tofu lemon bar experiment. I have not posted this recipe because it was very tart and not sweet at all, but still delicious and low carb when you need it I ate about 1/3 of this and it was only 75 calories, no sugar, and tons of protein!
Finally around 5:30 I had the most epic cheese dinner. I have really been on a cheese kick lately and probably need to calm this habit down soon
This was a dinner of Miracle noodles with All-natural tomato sauce, Quatro formaggio (also from Trader Joes), mushrooms, and a little bit of brie. You really cannot see anything though under that blanket of melted cheese.
This kept me full through the rest of the night of stretching, foam rolling, and watching Duma, which is only a good movie because there is a cheetah in it the entire time. It’s really meant for kids, but that’s never stopped me before Hello Lilo & Stich and Monster’s Inc.

I wanted to fill you all in on my morning secret drink! It’s delicious, low calorie, low sugar, and gives you caffeine from natural tea sources.
**This is not a paid sponsorship, this is truly a product I drink every morning and occasionally once more in the afternoon**
Why Do I Love it? In only one serving it has:
-A great flavor!
-It’s loaded with B Vitamins
-It only has 1 gram of sugar
-It has 100% of your Vitamin C needs
-70 mg of natural caffeine from yerba mate and green teas.
-Apple, grape, cocoa bean, and green tea extracts
I love this in the morning mixed half and half with my Homemade Ginger Brew
