Happy Fourth of July! This year the holiday also happens to fall on a Wednesday. For those of you in the States, hope you’re enjoying a lovely celebration, whether that involves a cookout, watching the fireworks with your nearest and dearest, or I don’t know, watching 1776 in your air-conditioned living room.

So I guess WIAW is officially “retirement age.” Kind of crazy…  As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

WIAW+fun+food+fitness+july+button - What I Ate Wednesday #65

In the spirit of this month’s theme, “Fun, Food & Fitness,” I kicked Monday off with some living room yoga and a spottily playlist that included artists such as M. Ward, The Pixies, The White Stripes, Bob Dylan, and Spoon, among others. I’m not someone who really needs flutes or chanting to get in the zone. img 5418 - What I Ate Wednesday #65

Here’s how the day looked in terms of food…

Breakfast: Steel-cut oats w/ chia, flax, chopped apple, dried fruit & PB img 5422 - What I Ate Wednesday #65

Added a little too much ice…

Dinner: smoked salmon & avocado on an ezekiel english muffin, side salad (I seem to be having this a lot on Mondays)img 5435 - What I Ate Wednesday #65

Snack: yogurt w/ berries & a crumbled up cookie—very ugly but good img 54371 - What I Ate Wednesday #65

It’s funny—some days are super-routine and then others are more spontaneous. For example, Tuesday  involved a morning walk-through-the-park commute to work and then later, a cheese-and-bread-esque picnic dinner, also in the park. For me, it’s all about keeping things interesting.
