WIAW #21

Summer just seems to be crammed with events. I have something going on pretty much every weekend until September. :O  Unfortunately, that means my poor lil blog suffers since I already stink at posting regular updates. Nevertheless, I am here with some eats for What I Ate Wednesday!

This month, Ms. Jenn introduced a new fun theme than incorporates eating well with fitness. So, be sure to get moving!

As for me, I CrossFit 4 to 5 times a week. Yep, I'm one of those people "drinking the Kool-Aid." ;)

I'd been going to the gym for about a year before I started CrossFit in February...and I was quickly hooked. I have gotten so much stronger and fitter in these few short months than I did the entire year I spent working out in the gym!

Breakfast: Paleo pancakes; egg whites

My babe and I have been dabbling a bit with eating paleo, so I made these pancakes from Carrots 'N' Cake. They are really good, especially topped with more almond butter! I love the TJs Almond Butter w/ Roasted Flax Seeds.

Lunch: Steak; Alexia sweet potato waffle fries; salad

ter breakfast, we went for a hike at Borderland State Park. Afterwards, we were pretty hungry (of course), so we ate very well at lunch. My babe is a grillin' master so he handled making the steak! ;)

 Dinner: Spicy Tuna & Philly rolls...

Hot n sour soup; chicken fingers; beef satay; pork fried rice...

aaaand tempura ice cream.

In other words, A FEAST! We went to a new sushi place that just opened up - Asian Ginger. Excellent food!

Treat time: Neapolitan ice cream w/ lotsa toppings

Yes, I somehow talked him into more ice cream. Taking advantage of the fact that it is summer!!!

Warning: shameless self-promotion about to take place. A couple of new posts that may be of interest...
Ribs, Ribs, Ribs (part one)

That just about does it for me today.

Enjoy your Wednesday!


  1. Mmm, that sushi sounds so good. As does the ice cream!! I didn't know you were a cross-fitter. I still haven't tried it (running is my love) but I know it would help make me stronger.

    1. Thanks :) I just started Crossfit in February and can already lift so much more than I ever thought possible - definitely a great strengthener! There is a bunch of workouts on the Crossfit website, so you could always use those at the gym on your own.

      I'm opposite from you - I gotta work on my running :)

  2. Your eats look amazing! I've never seen tempura ice cream before, interesting. I love putting lots of toppings on my ice cream/froyo! It's the only way to eat it :)

    1. Thank you! It is sometimes also called deep fried ice cream - and absolutely agree with you on the toppings ;)

  3. I love everything you ate - I can't get over how fantastic those paleo pancakes look :)

    1. They were excellent - I highly recommend them!!
