I’m sort of embarrassed by the photographs you are about to see – the quality, not the content. I have no shame in the contents of my tasty breakfast and lunch… no shame at all.
Today was a winning Waffle Wednesday. I created this ‘recipe’ in my head before getting into bed last night. It made rolling out of bed @ 6:00am so much easier.
Nutty Pumpkin Wafflewich
- 2 Van’s multigrain light toaster waffles
- smear of TJ’s flax almond butter on each waffle
- 2-3 T organic pumpkin mixed with agave & cinnamon
- 1/2 ripe banana, sliced
Loved all the different components to this wafflewich. What would you add?
Lunch was almost an exact duplicate of yesterday. Why mess with a good thing?
- 1/2 sprouted wheat tortilla
- smear of homemade pesto – all gone!
- 1 Dr. Praeger’s Cali Burger – love the crispy edges
- fresh romaine & red onion
… with a side of lemon H20 in a mason for hydration.
RUNNING WEDNESDAY WORKOUT.
Now that there is NO more WRECPump the rest of the semester [tear], I have to reschedule my Monday/Wednesday exercise regimen. My body was sending me some signals last night after two days of fast running, so I promised I would treat it with a 75-minute yoga class tonight. For some reason, it’s always hard to get myself to go to yoga classes [especially if they cost $$$]. I don’t get the same cravings for yoga as I do for cardio; however, throughout the day today, I imagined myself at the gym doing yoga… not circling the indoor track again and again. Set your mind to something, and you can do it! It’s all mental, all mental. The class was challenging and fun [hello handstands!]. Almost every time I leave a class, I wonder why I don’t make myself practice it more often. I get such a different feeling from yoga than I do from running… but it is a wonderful feel, a feeling of zen. It’s a good possibility yoga may become the new BodyPump :)
Are you a yoga-goer? How often do you practice? Do you have a favorite type of yoga?
Oh… I guess I should mention I did run 1 mile around the indoor track afterwards. Sorry, I just can’t help myself!

We’re over the hump! I must minimize my to-do list before Friday because I have a special guest visiting for the weekend :)
