WIAW #40 – Back again

Thanks to Jenn from Peas and Crayons for hosting the link party :)

I realize it’s been a while since I last posted one of these. Because I was training for a marathon, which I’d never done before, I started working with a dietitian I met through my coach a while back. Since September, I’ve lost almost 20 lbs. I’ve been eating clean, and not rewarding myself with foods after long runs. Now that the marathon is done with, it’s crunch time until the wedding. The wedding is creeping up fast and will be here in less than 2 months!

Yesterday morning, it was a little chilly, so I was craving something warm. I mixed a packet of Gluten Freeda apple cinnamon oatmeal with milk and popped it in the microwave. I added a banana and some almond butter.

breakfast - oats

For lunch, I had last night’s leftovers: Spicy Thai Turkey Wraps. I also made some quinoa with vegetables.

snack - apple slices with almond butterFor dinner, I made some shrimp and broccoli stir fry (I can’t remember which magazine the recipe came from), with some quinoa. I was glad my fiancé finished his plate, despite broccoli not being his favourite.

dinner - shrimp stir fry

And that wraps up another WIAW! Hope you’ve been good while I’ve been away :)


  1. I uh, have not trained for a marathon yet where I’ve NOT rewarded myself with food. Something to work on. ha! Congratulations on the weight loss! Exciting stuff there and your wedding coming up? Much happiness to you!
