I always love seeing what other people eat throughout the day.

Sometimes it gives me some great new ideas to keep me on track or find a new healthy obsession to stuff my face with. Thought it might fun to start sharing what Logan and I eat in a typical day. The hardest part about having a little one and trying to stay on track it with my own eating plan is resisting the urge to eat all his leftovers. Logan sometimes is a great eater, and sometimes he takes a few bites and then says all done…I find myself almost having two meals some days because his scraps somehow find their way in to my mouth. So annoying.

Anywho.

Here’s what our day of food included.

I start my day of with an pre-crack of dawn workout, we’re talking 4:30 am, and I make sure that I’ve got my pre-workout ready to go, along with a snack to fuel my workout.

Pre-Workout

Rehydrate, Spark, and Arginine Extreme get a little shake-shake-shake.
Catalyst.
2 egg whites and a handful of blueberries are eaten in the car on the way to the gym [forgot to take a picture].

After the gym when I get home I grab a handful of almonds.

Breakfast

Chocolate oatmeal with eggwhites, melted banana, and some blueberries with a little dollop of peanut butter
Hot Tea

Snack

Handful of almonds
Coffee blended with ice and 1/2 scoop of protein powder

Logan snacked on some raisins and granola bar on our drive home from Gymboree

Lunch

Salad, like a big one!! Spinach, black beans, brown rice, roasted red bell pepper, roasted chicken

Logan was being super picky for lunch and would only eat some turkey with pretzels and string cheese, along with a fruit squeeze pouch

Snack

Protein shake for me

Orange slices for Logan

Dinner

Cooked up some Tilapia with ginger/lime/garlic, served with roasted cabbage salad and a sweet tater

I try to do my best to make sure that Logan and I both have well balanced meals and that we cover all our food groups.

Since this is my first time doing a post like this I missed pictures of our snacks, so I’ll try to do a little better next week. But, I’d love to hear your thoughts, is this something you want to see more of on the blog? And if you have a little one, what are some yummy meals you feed them, I’m always looking for something new to introduce Logan to. Share your meals with me on Instagram using the #chooseu hashtag!

Pineapple Upside Down Cake in a Glass

A few weeks a go we had some friends over for an adult game night. We had Logan stay the night at grammie’s house so that we could be loud, have a few drinks, and stay up way past my bedtime without the fear of waking up the little man. It’s so funny, because the friends […]

Glamping

IMG_1662

Last weekend we ventured out to Colorado to go camping. But in a cabin. So, more like glamping [glamorous camping -- and OMG I literally just sang Fergie's song to remember how to spell glamorous]. It was Lucas’ birthday and he wanted to celebrate it out in the woods. Men are so weird. So we […]

Makin’ Mommy Happy

July 22, 2014

After a weekend out in the woods, I had a little time to decompress. Oh it was so nice. We went out to Colorado to celebrate Lucas’ birthday. We stayed in this beautiful  old timey cabin with my family [me, Lucas, Logan, Mom, Dad, brother, and grandad]. I think the best part about staying there […]

Drawing a blank

July 17, 2014

Oh help me. Please. I don’t know if it’s the toddler tantrums that have been happening at the drop of a hat, or the constant non-stopness of life, maybe even the waking up at 3:45 every morning [except the weekends]. But. I’m drawing a blank. On everything. This last week I’ve struggled with motivation. With […]

Our daily life

July 15, 2014

Confession time: I have a new obsession — vlogs on YouTube. I am going gaga over watching daily vlogs of people and families on YouTube. There’s something that’s so intriguing about watching someone’s everyday life. It’s kind of like reality TV, but um…more real[?]. Basically people film themselves everyday and post the videos up on […]

Arm Torcher.jpg

Lately I’ve been loving arm workouts. My favorite workout [or body part to train is legs] but, suddenly I’m finding myself loving arms more and more. So, I wanna make you love arms too! And the only way to do that is to help you get those lean, toned arms, so that you start to […]

Logan: 15 Months

July 9, 2014

This little man is growing up before my eyes. And I say little man, because this month Logan seems to really have come in to his own. He’s got his own personality now and is totally a little dude. The biggest thing that we’re experiencing right now is fits and tantrums, mixed in with cuddling […]
