I’ve been practicing being more flexible and being willing to adapt my routine when I need to. I used to be very rigid about what times I ate and worked out and in what order I did everything (I blame clinical for that), but over the past year it’s been so helpful to be more comfortable with just going with the flow or being willing to change gears at the last minute. Last Thursday was a really good example of that, so I’m sharing a peek for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday post.

My morning started out differently than I’d originally planned, where I found myself starting my workout a bit later and then having to get on track with my workload as the day went on. I’m that person who feels more productive in the afternoon if they exercise first thing and get the basic little life tasks done before lunch (“eat the frog” is something I would likely benefit from doing more often, but it was good for me to change it up and practice putting off non-essentials I default to packing my morning with. The productivity struggle is real!

I’m working on it. Here’s a look at the “What I Ate” part of the day.


Pre-workout snack: my favorite turkey jerky and a shot of espresso
Breakfast for real : mushroom leek frittata and leftover roasted Japanese sweet potato
Lunch: Salad with tuna, avocado, and random vegetables, dressed with balsamic and topped with a sprinkle of hemp hearts
Snack: Plain Greek yogurt with seeds, cinnamon, and a drizzle of maple syrup
Dinner: spaghetti squash with roasted vegetables, instant pot herbed chicken, hummus, and a sprinkle of herbed feta; a piece of chocolate and tea for dessert (not pictured).

When do you feel most productive?
