WIAW # 80 – Green Beans with Almonds

Good evening everyone. I hope you are having a great week. Our week has been fairly calm besides McKenzie and McKayla not feeling well. But, I have to say they slept well last night. YAY, maybe their medicine is working. Like, last week I have been feeling pretty good about my eating lately. Yes, I have had a few too many pieces of cake, but I still make sure to practice moderation. The cake from the girls’ party was amazing so it was well worth it.

Post Workout – 6:45am

Sweet Treat 7pm

Paleo Protein Bar – I love, love, love these. I can’t get enough of them. I seriously have to make sure I only eat one a day; I could eat the entire batch and so could McKayla.

Okay, so I didn’t hit my goal this week with eating a salad. But, I have still incorporated a lot of green beans. I don’t feel too bad at least I have added in some green veggies.
