Hey everyone! Today’s WIAW follows me around on a normal study day! If you’re new to WIAW, be sure to head over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about and the other participating bloggers!
Wake up. Drink about 1/3 of that coffee and some water while posting my blog.
(just fyi – that cup is supposed to be bright yellow. just an indication of the beautiful 5am lighting…)
Get dressed. Go to gym….

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying your 4 day week!!! For today’s WIAW, I wanted to show you a typical day of bar prep for me! Today’s WIAW comes from yesterday! If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about, and check out the other participating bloggers!
I woke up around 4:50am, had some coffee and half a banana, put up my blog post and then headed off to the gym! Since Boot Camp ended last week I decided I wanted to focus more on strength and weights, so I’m following just the workout plan from Jamie Eason’s Livefit Trainer (NOT the meal plan) to get in some weights. Yesterday was chest & triceps, and I did 10 minutes of elliptical at the beginning and threw in 10 more at the end since I finished early.
After the gym I headed home, showered, got dressed, packed up and had a few extra minutes so I decided to eat my overnight oats at home…

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a good week! Today at 4pm I pick up my take-home exam and I have 24 hours to complete it, so by 4pm tomorrow I am DONE with law school! YAY! Haha just have to survive the next day and a half and hopefully pass all my classes… fingers crossed!
Today’s WIAW post comes from Monday, a day where I had a chiropractor appointment and then I volunteered in the afternoon. I thought it would only take an hour so I had a snack instead of lunch before (didn’t have time to sit down to lunch) but it ended up taking 2.5 hours… haha so my food from Monday is a bit all over the place and snacky, but that’s what happens when you’re busy I guess!

Since I’m apparently now awful at taking pictures of everything I eat throughout the day… I managed to get a few and then everything goes downhill. So… here’s another WIAW lately post! I’m also super proud I got a little food prep in this weekend! I chopped up veggies for snacks, got a bunch of salad ingredients from the bulk bins, made brown rice and quinoa, made my own almond butter AND I made Red Lentil Dal for easy meals!

Chocolate Protein Oat Bran with peanut butter and frozen blueberries (sooo good)…

Happy Wednesday! Today’s WIAW has to do with the Intuitive Eating Challenge that I’m doing with Jamie and several other participants. Our challenge on Tuesday was to stop eating when we’re full. Sounds simple, right? Well for most of us in the challenge this is totally foreign. I mean, I make my bowl of oat bran and I eat my whole bowl. I don’t think: “Geez (yes, geez) I think I’m full now so I’ll stop eating and toss the rest out.”
Anyone with me here? I mean yea, if you’re at a restaurant and your meal is huge, of course you stop eating when you’re full. But for me to make myself a normal portioned meal but not eat it all is just unheard of. Many of us discussed this in our facebook group and a common theme was a fear of being hungry later. I know personally I used to have my set meals and snacks at set times. If I got hungry in between, then too bad. So a lot of my finishing my plate mentality came from a fear of being hungry before I should. If I ate my whole meal then I shouldn’t get hungry.
Now I realize that’s just silly. Eating intuitively means …

I have to admit, I was pretty resistant to sharing a day this week on my WIAW post. A lot of intuitive eating is trial and error for me, and despite updating you all on my progress, I consider it a pretty personal journey. Over the past week and a half many of my days have had really weird eating habits. Part of what we do is think about what we’re craving and then based on that decide what to eat. Well, I never really know what I’m craving, or I want a whole bunch of different things. Because of that, my meals turn into a bizarre montage of little snacks rather than a coherent meal.
I don’t know why it feels so personal, but a big part of me didn’t want to let everyone in on what I’ve been eating. Ha, maybe I’m just feeling moody right now. However, I decided yesterday that I would focus a lot of making meals, sitting down to eat them, and stopping when full, so I thought that using it as my WIAW post would force me to be better about that, and keep me from snacking out of the fridge. So here we go!

Can I get a wahoo for Wednesday?! Halfway through the week! I’m pretty excited about it, despite the fact that I have a make-up class today, which means I will be spending 170 minutes of my day in First Amendment Law… hmmm. But that’s okay, already working on my goals and using those positive affirmations!
So seeing as it’s Wednesday, it’s time for another edition of What I Ate Wednesday! If you are new to WIAW, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about!
Soooo the sick thing? Well, Saturday night I suddenly got a really sore throat. I thought maybe it was from my run that morning, or from sleeping with the windows open the night before (allergies?), but when I woke up Sunday with a horrible sore throat. Obviously I went straight to the internet and diagnosed myself with…

Can you sense the sarcasm in my title? Haha today’s What I Ate Wednesday doesn’t really follow the “green” theme for March, unless you count my green frozen yogurt spoon! But hey, no one eats perfectly all the time, so here’s a look at all my food from yesterday!

I woke up a little later than normal (about 6:30), did some blog work and then around 8 headed to the gym. Normally I wake up hungry but I had zero appetite. I figured I should have something in my system before my “long” run, so I ate a Clif Shot Blok before heading out.
Guess how far my long run was?
I cannot tell you the last time I ran five miles. I’m taking it slow getting back into distances, but I’ve got a 10K coming up in a week and a half, so I figured I should get in a couple longer runs so I don’t die. It’s another Muddy Monk Trail Run, so…

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a good week! I’m in countdown mode – only two days left until I’m on Spring Break!!! I don’t want to rub it in since I know most of you aren’t students, but it’s my last one ever so I’ve got to enjoy it!
This week’s What I Ate Wednesday Post includes all my food from Sunday, which was a pretty dreary, rainy day here in Chicago. If you’re new to WIAW, head over to Peas and Crayons to read what it’s all about and to see the other participating bloggers!
My morning started off with my newest obsession: Oat Bran. Love. It’s got a great texture and it cooks SO QUICKLY! I made oat bran with some vanilla and stevia and paired it with a strawberry chobani and some almond butter. Coffee on the side, of course.
After getting a little reading done, I did Jillian Michael’s 6 week 6 pack level 1, and then some lower body strength training with a resistance band. I didn’t add in any…
