It’s WIAW #3 (What I Ate Wednesday)! And also our school’s graduation tonight.
That means that a) school is almost over, and b) school is almost over. Can you tell I’m excited?! 7 more days after today…
I CANNOT WAIT to enjoy the slowness that summer brings. Sleeping in a little longer, eating breakfast (and lunch!) at home and outside (on days it’s nice), having more time to read, to walk around the lakes, to enjoy the beautiful weather.
My summer will also consist of working in the weight room with my high school soccer girls 4 days a week, and then soccer itself will start up mid-August. I also have a week long soccer training course, a week long economics course, and a weekend yoga training course. That plus a couple of other days of training for work and I’ll be sure to stay busy!
I thought about getting another part-time job, but then I realized that I would be making the same amount as my high school students. And let’s be real, that’s just not cool. I’d like to think my time is a little more valuable these days than $8.00 an hour (or whatever the going rate is for retail/restaurant jobs!).
Last week I missed WIAW. I blogged about what I ate on Wednesday for the Fed Up Challenge (it was Day 10), but didn’t actually post it until Thursday.

After a day off, today I’m back on the WIAW train of fun!
And since today is Wednesday, this is actually what I ate yesterday.
Breakfast: Organic Greek yogurt with organic frozen mixed berries (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries), chia seeds, and cacao nibs. It’s like eating ice cream, for breakfast.
Lunch: Well this is pathetic. I had yet to go to the grocery store since we were out of town all weekend (and it was too nice Monday to bring myself to do it!), so it was pretty slim pickings around our place. I had some ham and cheese in the fridge, along with some carrots. So that’s what I ate. Ham and cheese roll-ups with carrots. Again, kind of pathetic.
Snack: The usual at work. Mixed nuts. These are from Whole Foods, but I sometimes buy them at Target or Trader Joe’s (where they are a bit cheaper!).
Dinner: Tuesday nights I teach yoga at Yoga Sol in Minneapolis. It’s the first donation-based yoga studio of it’s kind in Minnesota, which is pretty sweet. I love being able to offer yoga classes to those who need them, but might not be able to afford them otherwise.
Last night I was on my own for dinner, as the fiance was hanging out with his brother after work. Being we didn’t have any groceries, and I was super hungry after work, I headed to a new fast-casual restaurant in town (Agra Culture in Uptown) that serves up organic and local food with lots of gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options. Love it!
I ordered the Chicken Cobb salad, with a side of roasted yam fries.
Salad with kale, nitrate-free bacon, local blue cheese, slivered almonds, cherry tomatoes, and free-range chicken – yum!
It was amazing. Especially because it was both quick and healthy. I will definitely be back!
Dessert: When I got home after teaching yoga, I had one of the Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls from the freezer. I’m obsessed!
