Five Friday: What I ate


It’s Five Friday and this week was a week of challenges from all over.  Recovering from a brief knee injury, to work demands to trying not to gain too much weight since I am sidelined and not working out as intensely as I normally would.  With that said I have tried my best to EAT better and DO better.  It is a work in progress because I have the workout piece DOWN – it’s the diet that gives me grief.

1.  I started eating pre-workout healthy snacks.  Check out my apples and PB.  Oooh lala it was DIVINE and really hit the spot.

2.  I cut back on the vino.  Every girl loves a great glass of wine including MOI but I tried not to have a glass each and every day.

3.  Made this KILLER black bean taco (recipe to be featured on Meal Mondays).  I am still full from it.

4.  I ate a green salad at least 3 days this week which is very good for me!!!  I also purchased some pre-packaged salads to try at home.  One even came with pear dressing.  YUMMY!

5.  As normal – I hooked up the smoothies this week which continued to give me more energy and kept me fuller than normal.  YES….what a WIN!

Those are my 5 Friday things.

What did you eat this week that made you say WHOA, I am doing GOOD?

    I also cut back on the vino this week after over-indulging last weekend. I’m glad because it really made me feel better to not have a daily glass this week! I’m also trying to focus on salads for lunch rather than a hot lunch from the buffet in the work cafeteria.

      There’s a woman in our private online fitness group on Facebook who is doin it up in the salad category. She is posting like a new salad recipe with pictures like daily. She is truly inspiring me to eat more salads.

    Those tacos look great! I didn’t do too well with the health eating last week since our kitchen sink was leaking and we did a lot of take out 🙁 I’m hoping to be better this week since it’s fixed now.

    I ate a ton of veggies this past week, so I’m excited about that!

    Playing with the scale and checking my weight several times a week, seeing the numbers go down feels good. I know I won’t want to do this all the time but it’s a nice experiment.

    I think you did great this week!! Especially being laid up with the knee!! I actually had a rough week but was still able to get in quite a few salads so I felt good about that. Hey, thanks for linking up over at Fitness Friday – If you do any kind of health post this week, feel free to link up again, I’d love to see you back!
