Is it just me or does the Tuesday after a 3-day weekend feel like the worst Monday ever?  I just couldn’t get things together until after lunch yesterday haha.  First, I forgot my cami to go under my v-neck shirt so I had to wear my sweaty gym tank top.  Next, the lady I was meeting on post was 15 minutes late.  And so and so forth.  It just made me laugh :)  BUT today is now Wednesday which means the week is already halfway over … score!  And it means that it’s time for another What I Ate Wednesday with Jenn of Peas and Crayons glory.




Baked apple cinnamon oatmeal and fruit


I made this baked apple cinnamon oatmeal the night before knowing that Em and I had an early morning ahead of us yesterday.  A few seconds in the microwave and breakfast was served!  A perfectly healthy and filling way to get ready for the day.


Buffalo Chicken Salad



Lunch was one of my favorites – a buffalo chicken salad.  I mix some buffalo sauce into ranch dressing and it is fantastic.  Seriously a fav.


Homemade trail mix and red juice



OOO looky … I remembered my snacks again ;)  I made a batch of homemade trail mix for Chris and I over the weekend so a handful or two was consumed throughout the day.  In it is peanuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, pineapple, and some M&Ms.  I also made a red juice with my new juicer!  More on that soon ;)  But the juice was beet, grapefruit, carrot, and apple.  The beet made it pretty earthy … the taste was still good but something I will kind of have to get used to.  I felt great and full of energy after it though!


Lasagna Rolls


I had dinner ready to go early so that I could eat before heading out to book club.  I made lasagna rolls with whole wheat noodles, light ricotta, and spinach.  A small salad on the side and an ice cold glass of milk.


Now … I have said it before and here it is again: I try to eat clean(ish) 80% of the time and then have fun with the other 20%.  I think true healthy living is finding a balance between the kale and the buffalo wings with an emphasis on the kale ;)  I work hard and eat well throughout the week so I can have some guilt-free fun in an attempt to find that balance.  Last night was a night of indulgence and fun.  Last night was my monthly book club that Victoria  invited me to join when I first moved to Savannah .  Our book club is sometimes more wine than reading but it is a good time always.  Last night we went to Frames’N'Games in Pooler for some bowling and laser tag.


Our version of book club


Yup … a few nachos, potato skins, and mozzarella sticks joined the beer.  Don’t worry, it wasn’t all for me ;)  Victoria rocked out and won bowling but I burned some calories and whooped booty in laser tag.  If anyone says laser tag isn’t a workout is a liar.


There you have it.  A healthy day of eats followed by a fun night of indulgence.  And I am 100% satisfied with how it went ;)


Do you follow the 80/20 rule?  What are your favorite things in the 20%?  Mine are buffalo wings and good beer.
