Spiced WIAW

Happy WIAW!  I had a happy Tuesday.  Not only was it filled with extra kitty snuggles and yummy food, I also had new leg press PR.  Woohoo!  I’m already sore today, and I’m sure it’s only going to get worse.  That’s okay though; each agonizing step just reminds me of how hard I worked.

Thanks Jen for hosting another WIAW linkup party.  I guess it’s time for me to dive right into the eats!

Pre-Gym: rice cake with rocket fuel (aka: peanut butter)

Post- Gym: parfait with organic TJs cereal, organic TJs Greek yogurt, and a beautiful Harry & David plum

parfait     plums

Snack: a small handful of raw almonds

Lunch: 3 oz chicken breast cooked in olive oil with cauliflower, peas, curry, and a shake of ginger (prepped Monday)

 curry     curry

Snack: pumpkin protein bars (with oat flour and walnuts – prepped Sunday)


Snack (again): my hungry self snagged a handful or two of Kev’s chips when I got home

Dinner: turkey chili (I ate more than I meant to, but it was worth it!  Side note, I recommend the recipe, but I had to add hot sauce to mine.  It’s tasty but weak.)


Between the curry lunch, chili dinner, and pumpkin spiced snack, that’s a lotta’ spices!  K, enough procrastinating… I’m off for my walk and some light yoga.

  • How do you like your chili?  Extra spicy?  With cheese?

    I’m a huge wimp when it comes to spicy entrees. I can really only handle mild 🙂

  2. Awww, those plums look beautiful. I just bought a batch yesterday and they are already quite delish!

  3. My husband makes our chili and he has a secret ingredient that makes it sweet and yummy! Brown sugar!

  4. Me and spicy food don’t do that well – stomach hates it. I keep things pretty mild, but cheese is definitely a necessity!

  5. Congrats on your PR. Always a great way to begin the week 🙂

    I like spicy food, but i’m with Amanda above, I just don’t think it would agree with my stomach. My favorite spicy food would be either queso or a bowl of chipotle though! Your chili looks delicious!

  6. I am a massive wimp and only like a teeny bit of chilli in spicy foods!

  7. Yellow plums!!! Man I am jealous one of my favs!

  8. Congrats on your leg press pr! I’ve grown to appreciate spicy food more over the years… looks like a delicious day of eats!

    I love my chili with cheese, sour cream, diced onions, & cilantro. The more toppings the better. I haven’t had all those topping in a long time though. Trying to eat healthier means bye bye to most those toppings. 🙁
