WIAW: Literally Falling

Well, this isn’t quite the way I planned to start this WIAW post. The theme of WIAW this month is “fall into good habits” and last night I did just that – I fell down the stairs and realllllly hurt myself. I’m kind of a klutz and tend to trip myself quite often, but this is no joke. My tailbone is super sore right now and I feel like I slipped and landed on a pile of ice. Ironically, the pain is more tolerable when I am standing/walking. With that said, no working out for me today…and probably tomorrow. Nick’s mom is a nurse and she told me to only walk as long as it is comfortable. No lifting anything and definitely no running. I think I’m going to need some froyo tonight to drown my sorrows.

Anyways, enough of that! Let’s jump on into WIAW. Thanks to Jenn for hosting this fun link-up!


Breakfast: Pumpkin oatmeal! In case you missed my post about my favorite breakfast as of late, you can read all about it here.

IMG_8303Lunch: Lunch was broken up into two parts. I made a smoothie for part one. This was Trader Joe’s fancy berry mix, almond milk, a blueberry Chobani, vanilla protein powder and lots of spinach.

IMG_8304I was still hungry after I drank it, so part two was peanut butter and strawberry preserves on rice cakes. I love, love, love these preserves – they are SO much better than jelly, in my opinion!

Dinner: It’s a little cooler now, but I want to make the most out of the grill before grilling season comes to a close so I grilled up some burgers using my favorite recipe. The only difference is that these were lean ground beef, not turkey. I topped mine with ketchup, mustard and avocado. Served with a side of sweet potato fries and peas!


Dessert: After dinner, I made a batch of Robyn’s double peanut butter chocolate chip granola and turned it into granola muffins. One of those went straight to my mouth, in all its melted chocolate peanut butter glory. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – if you have never made this granola, you MUST.


See ya tomorrow!
