WIAW – The Fitnessista

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

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

For in the present day’s submit, I believed I’d share a WIAW model submit, since they’re already being requested in my annual survey and I haven’t executed one shortly. To be trustworthy, I’ve developed blended emotions in direction of all these posts. I actually thought they had been simply designed to share new concepts and meals combos, however then I noticed that they’ll additionally grow to be a supply of comparability. (An account I observe on IG did a terrific submit about this, and I fully agree with all the pieces she mentioned.)

I LOVE studying all these posts, however can completely see how the comparability lure can rear its ugly head. “She had extra greens than me. Oh, her husband cooked dinner; should be good. I don’t have time to eat lunch like that. I wish to purchase these elements, however finances is tight.” and so forth.and so forth. It will 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 deal with myself and what I can management inside my means. Comparability serves zero goal in any respect.

On the identical 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 submit, manufacturers care so much about numbers.)

However, I noticed that by evaluating, I’m stealing my very own pleasure. As a substitute of utilizing comparability to really feel dangerous about myself, I exploit 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 crew, however I can undoubtedly outsource x,y, and z.” Or “Although I don’t have as many followers, I LOVE the entire individuals who selected to observe 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 folks do.)

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


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 faculty, so I don’t seize any snacks and find yourself consuming half of P’s discarded waffle within the automotive. Testing takes without end, they’re over an hour late to highschool, however we make it. 

10am: Breakfast! Two exhausting 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 straightforward and scrumptious. 

Submit-workout: a smoothie with frozen berries (I 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 at all times a very good 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 appreciated about at the present time of eats:

It was a better carb day based on my Lumen, and I really feel prefer it was the proper recharge for my muscle tissues. I used to keep away from greater 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 model, however I’ve labored on switching it up and growing my carb consumption over the previous handful of years.

Today additionally included a margarita, which robotically 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 just a little 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 buddies: what do you consider WIAW model posts? Do you want them, or nah?

What do you do once you really feel your self getting sucked into the comparability lure?
