Thanks for checking out my What I Ate Wednesday post. Did you know this is the last WIAW before Christmas? Squeeeeeee! If you haven’t already, check out Peas & Crayons for other WIAW posts.
Breakfast: 1st Breakfast, a lil’ pb on a rice cake, 2nd Breakfast: Greek yogurt parfait with blackberries
Lunch: Leftovers of Monday night’s dinner (it was worth repeating) with a slice of bread
Snack: Two packages arrived today. I got a new vacuum, which is good except that now I actually have to use it, and I got a Christmas delivery of Harry & David pears. So pretty! I ate one with a handful of chips. (whoops)
Dinner & Dessert: jerk turkey burgers, sweet potato “fries” and green beans, followed by a pumpkin muffin
Side Note: I had a good 3-mile run and a ballin’ leg session yesterday at the gym. I also went for a 1-mile walk after work for fun.
Extra Side Note: The “first breakfast” and “second breakfast” labels mean a little more to me now that I’m reading The Hobbit. Elevensies?
- Got plans to read/watch The Hobbit? Already seen/read it?
- Getting excited for Christmas? Honestly, it’s too warm here to feel like Christmas, but I’m excited to see my family soon.

I wasn’t going to post today, but I really really really had to share a recipe I found the other day. I made these jerk turkey burgers on Sunday night, and I made them again Monday night. Wow – just freakin’ wow.
Okay, I didn’t exactly follow the recipe. I omitted the slaw topping. I also accidentally omitted the grated apple. Yeah, I totally forgot about it even though I bought one at the store. Lastly, I used a half oats and half breadcrumbs, as opposed to 100% breadcrumbs.
While the grill was hot, Kevin and I threw on some corn, and we had some there on the side. I have to admit, I usually omit scallions from recipes (cheap & lazy), but they really added to the meal. Touché Scallions.
As long as I’m linking up, I may as well share a new workout I tried last week. I tried one of Christina’s HIIT workouts with treadmill sprints and other fun stuff. I enjoyed it, but my lats were surprisingly sore the next day. I guess those decline pushups were harder than anticipated!
Sorry for the random cat pics. We had a little photo session Sunday. I need to figure out this dang camera already!
- Got a DSLR? If so – how’d you learn to use it???
- Tried a good workout lately? If so – link up!
