Three Healthy Meals

Last night Brent and I both had the nights off of work and such, which is rare.. so we took full advantage and took the kids for a little walk/run for some.. up City Creek Canyon in SLC. I love being outside with my little family. We had fun finding waterfalls, wild flowers and squirrel homes.


The weather ended up being the perfect temperature in the canyon and the leaves are all starting to change. Which is one of my favorite things about fall.

I love these two and can’t believe I’m going to have THREE kids soon.. eek.



Since today is actually the first day of fall I found it perfect to make a giant bowl of Protein Pumpkin Oatmeal.



I had a pretty laid back morning of hanging out with the kids and reading my book. This whole pregnancy thing may be catching up with me. Winking smile 


Today lunch was actually another one of my favorite breakfast. I had two pieces of holey ezekiel bread with coconut oil,  2 whole eggs and two egg whites with spinach and a side of a ton of strawberries. I snacked on them straight from the container while my eggs were cooking. Strawberries are one fruit I know I could eat forever.



My workout today consisted of part of the GPP workout that focused on abs and triceps today. I obviously skipped the ab part and really worked hard on the triceps. I definitely felt the burn and know I will be sore tomorrow. I also jumped on the spin bike for a bit at the end.  Brent was home with the kids ,so I headed to the other gym I work at and spent 30 more minutes on the Arc Trainer.


Those who can’t run, read about running. right? This recent issue of Running kept me occupied.  I sure wish I could hit the trails right now but I’m a little more anxious about this sweet babe coming in the next 2 weeks!

I am starting to really like the arc trainer. I play with the incline and resistance a lot and watched Ellen and read a magazine.. Can you tell I’m a little ADD and have to be kept busy so I don’t get bored?

I will post an Arc Trainer workout for you all soon!


For dinner I ate my fair share of green grapes while my halibut and asparagus was cooking. I cooked my halibut in a tablespoon of coconut oil and seasoned it with Mrs. Dash Garlic and Onion.

It was perfection.


I actually took pictures of 3 main meals today. Surprised?  I was. Ha!

I also had several snacks in between.. Peaches (amazing!) with cottage cheese, protein shake, cucumbers and hummus and a couple of gummy worms. I am convinced Black Forest Gummy Worms are the best.. and fyi they are not sold at target..

Questions of the Day:

Do you multi task to keep your mind off the boredom of a Treadmill/elliptical/stair climber etc?

What did you have for 3 meals today?
