WIAW – The Fitnessista


WIAW = What I ate Wednesday. Sharing a full day of eats, from begin to end. 

Hello mates! How’s the day going to date? I’ve 1:1 purchasers this morning and am beginning wrapping extravaganza after college. I solely have two days to do it, so I higher get crack-a-lackin. 

For as we speak’s put up, I believed I’d share a WIAW fashion put up, since they’re already being requested in my annual survey and I haven’t accomplished one shortly. To be sincere, I’ve developed combined emotions in the direction of most of these posts. I actually thought they have been simply designed to share new concepts and meals combos, however then I noticed that they will additionally turn into a supply of comparability. (An account I comply with on IG did an important put up about this, and I utterly agree with every thing she stated.)

I LOVE studying most of these posts, however can completely see how the comparability entice can rear its ugly head. “She had extra greens than me. Oh, her husband cooked dinner; have to be good. I don’t have time to eat lunch like that. I need to purchase these components, however funds is tight.” and so on.and so on. It could possibly go on and on, and so many points of the well being and health world can unintentionally invite the potential for comparability.

On the finish of the day, I’ve realized that I’ve to concentrate on myself and what I can management inside my means. Comparability serves zero objective in any respect.

On the similar time, it may be actually tempting to check, and I do it to myself, on a regular basis, particularly with different creators who’ve large groups and greater on-line followings. (I hate that I’ve to care about numbers, however like I discussed in my final put up, manufacturers care quite a bit about numbers.)

However, I noticed that by evaluating, I’m stealing my very own pleasure. As a substitute of utilizing comparability to really feel unhealthy about myself, I take advantage of it as inspiration. What tiny piece can I implement for myself? With the instance of different creators, I can consider one thing like, “Okay, I don’t have an enormous group, however I can positively outsource x,y, and z.” Or “Though I don’t have as many followers, I LOVE all the individuals who selected to comply with me.” I’m pleased with the truth that I’ve by no means (and can by no means) purchase followers or engagement only for the sake of numbers. (Not saying everybody who has large followings does that, however fairly just a few individuals do.)

Simply wished so as to add this little be aware in right here as I head into this explicit day of (*imperfect* however scrumptious) eats. Hopefully you will get some new meal concepts or combos from this put up!

6:30am:  

Espresso: a decaf espresso with collagen, almond milk, and Stevia. I drink about half of it whereas I dress and take the remainder within the automotive with me. 

I’ve to take the youngsters to get COVID examined earlier than college, so I don’t seize any snacks and find yourself consuming half of P’s discarded waffle within the automotive. Testing takes perpetually, they’re over an hour late to highschool, however we make it. 

10am: Breakfast! Two laborious boiled eggs with a Dealer Joe’s in a single day oats. I additionally take my dietary supplements and drink one other decaf espresso whereas speaking to 1:1 purchasers

Midday: Lunch is leftovers! I LOVE leftovers for lunch as a result of it makes life a lot simpler. I’ve some smoked turkey with Primal Kitchen buffalo sauce, asparagus, and vegan pumpkin curry soup (from the Complete Meals deli). Tremendous simple and scrumptious. 

Submit-workout: a smoothie with frozen berries (I really like the frozen berry packs with spinach from Costco), spinach, a banana, almond milk, Organifi concord, and vanilla Nuzest protein powder. I didn’t snap a pic of the smoothie, however did snap certainly one of my outfit lol. It’s all the time a superb day once I can put on rain boots! It’s been cloudy and wonderful right here in Tucson. 

Dinner: Taco Tuesday! Two hen tacos, 1 margarita, and roughly 1483 chips at Calle Tepa

What I favored about at the present time of eats:

It was the next carb day in response to my Lumen, and I really feel prefer it was the proper recharge for my muscle tissues. I used to keep away from larger carb days as a result of it felt unnatural to me – I ate decrease carb for a lot of my life, as a result of it’s what helped me in my preliminary weight reduction journey. I used to be very used to this consuming fashion, however I’ve labored on switching it up and rising my carb consumption over the previous handful of years.

Today additionally included a margarita, which routinely made it a gold star. I’m not consuming a ton lately – attempting to simply have 1-2 glasses per week as a result of my power is so significantly better with out it – however I nonetheless love wine and ‘ritas.

What I didn’t love about at the present time of eats:

It was slightly decrease on the veggie facet. I received three-ish servings of veggies (spinach, asparagus, and pumpkin soup), and my purpose is often 4-6 fists of non-starchy veggies. 

So, inform me mates: what do you consider WIAW fashion posts? Do you want them, or nah?

What do you do if you really feel your self getting sucked into the comparability entice?
