This is a different kind of post for me, but I always get asked questions about my nutrition. As you know I am a post op WLS (weight loss surgery) patient and I use food as my fuel.I try to eat as much real food as possible. Yes I do still eat my Quest protein bars but that is because they are freaking yummy! So here is how I start my day, on a very typical day

When i have the time in the morning I always sautee up sweet potatoes in coconut oil with a dash of cinnamon. Once they are slightly cooked I tossed in an egg and scramble it up! Then I top it with avocados because they are the greatest thing ever grown! I am on a huge avocado kick lately!

My breakfast is always served after at least 2-3 cups of coffee and No I will never ever in the history of everdom give that up! Rant over!

During the morning I will have more coffee and water then I try to sneak home for lunch, which is almost always a hugh jass salad! Like this one


Holy moly this was the most epic salad to date! I used bagged lettuce, crispy tortilla strips, cheese, sliced leftover chicken breast, edamame, and Costco’s Texas Caviar salad on the side. I drizzled this bad boy with a little Caesar dressing and ate my face off! I am not going to lie, I pretty much cleaned that bowl, I was starving because I did not get lunch until 1:45 ish.

I was super busy at work all afternoon waiting on offers to come back and getting signatures from clients so this is where my trusty Quest bars come into play. I keep them in my desk drawer, purse, car etc, You never know when you will be hungry.


I like to pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds then top with some peanut butter and lick my fingers clean! This is absolute deliciousness! NO LIE!

Once home I knew I needed to get out there for a run because it was a beauty of a day, sun was shining, breezy and just plain running weather! So off I went

I have not yet started my half training so yonights run was not a required distance or pace, it was just a run! I really enjoyed tonight’s run because I just took note of my surroundings ( love to run by the water) and I wanted to take my new Mizuno Wave Precision 13’s out for their first run, LOVE THEM!! I am so Team Mizuno as this is the best shoe I have ever worn! I love you Mizuno!

So once I got home i threw back some Amino x for recovery and ate a burger! No pictures of that because I was Rungry and I ate it before a picture could even happen!

So that is a day in the life of Inkdgirl’s belly, not that you were ever really interested but i had to share the awesomeness of that salad because let’s be honest – IT ROCKED!!!

Peace out friends!
