It's Wednesday, which means What I Ate Wednesday! I really wish I had more creative photos to show, but I eat what I eat :) Here are some of my meals today.
Lunch consisted of a blueberry salad with Swai fish and a bagel thin with string cheese.
Dinner was grilled salmon and a huge side of roasted vegetables. I love roasted tomatoes on the grill. I think in reality I just love crispy food, so crispy veggies I adore.
Here are 5 things I am loving this Wednesday....
1. That is is Wednesday, which means only 1 more day of Summer School this week and no more tutoring for the week
2. The weather forecast calls for today being the LAST rainy, cloudy, chilly day this week
3. 4 more days until my 10k run
4. My new book that came in the mail today...
5. I re-stocked my order of Protein powder, Cinnamon Bun and Peanut Butter
5 Things I am Not So Loving this Wednesday
1. A call from my car dealership claiming they have not received my cashier's check that was over-nighted over a week ago
2. My room for summer school is so muggy that my students papers are actually damp
3. How sore and tired I am from this weeks past workouts...calls for a rest day tomorrow
4. I went to turn in clothes to Plato's Closet (a retail store that buys back old clothes) and they gave my 4 bucks for a HUGE bag of clothes...and I even had a North Face Fleece in the bag that I bought this year!
5. Today's weather, to yucky to even take Cooper out on a walk
Today's workout was a light 45 minute elliptical workout followed by some abs. I woke up this morning very tired and worn out, I should have been better about listening to my body and staying in ya learn. Tomorrow is 100% rest and start fresh on Friday.
What are some things you are loving/hating this Wednesday?
How many rest days do you take?
I try to take at least one rest day a week, but sometimes I need more then that if I push myself to hard.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love roasted veggies too, especially zucchini on the BBQ :)

  2. those veggies look AMAZING!!!!

    I usually take 2 rest days per week. otherwise I just feel worn down and sore. Hopefully you are refreshed for your workout on Friday :)

  3. Good luck on your 10K, you will do great! And I hope the weather clears up for you over there, its supposed to be officially summer now, so you can't stand for crummy weather! :)

  4. your food looks great! i usually take a few rest days each week but before a race i try and really slow things down for the week and its really really hard for me! im trying to do as few miles as possible this week before my 5k saturday and it's killing me!

  5. Jealous of your dinner.... looks amazinggg. I usually take 1 rest day per week. I only take 2 when I've either had an extra hard workout or sleep deprivation.

  6. How are you liking the Jillian book? I love her DVDs but haven't checked out the books yet..
