WIAW #25: Disney World Edition

Good morning, everyone!  It's crazy that we are already halfway through the week.  I have a feeling that things are going to be very busy for me from now until Spring Break (mid-March), so bare with me if I'm not blogging as frequently as I'd like to!

Anyway, since it's Wednesday (and I actually took pictures of a full day's worth of food), it's time to join the What I Ate Wednesday party again!
Thank you to Jenn for hosting the link-up every week.  Head over to her blog Peas and Crayons for more information about WIAW and to check out what the rest of blog land is eating!

Today's WIAW features my eats from Saturday.  I was at Disney World for the Princess Half Marathon weekend, as well as preparing for the race on Sunday.  Let's take a look at how I prepared for the half marathon (hint: lots of carbs!):


In my mind, it is mandatory to have a Mickey Mouse waffle for breakfast whenever you are staying at a Disney resort.  It's something about those waffles that just taste so, so good, and they never fail to put a smile on my face!  I had one post-half on Sunday, as well.

After browsing the expo at ESPN's Wide World of Sports, I stopped at the ESPN grill on the way out for lunch.  I wanted to get something with protein that was healthy, so this Cobb Salad did the trick!  It also have avocado in it, which I very much enjoyed.  I surprisingly finished the whole thing, too!

Snack #1

This little treat was a freebie at the expo.  It's part chocolate chip cookie, part brownie, but fully delicious!

Snack #2
I met up with my sister-in-law Katherine at a Mexican restaurant in Orlando, so I snacked on some (unpictured) chips, salsa, and guacamole while enjoying my margarita and the company!  We also stopped by Starbucks after getting pedicures and I ordered a Skinny Cafe Mocha with sugar free caramel syrup.  That syrup is a wonderful addition!


I always have pasta the night before a half marathon, and this time was no different.  I visited the cafeteria at my resort and got the pasta with pesto sauce, a side salad, and a breadstick.  The salmon was left over from Katherine's meal at the Mexican restaurant, and it was a tasty addition to my dinner!  I polished everything off, and I must say, that breadstick was AMAZING!  I almost went back to buy another.

After that, I put on the movie Guilt Trip (with Seth Rogen) and fell asleep by 8:30.  Perfect bedtime when the alarm was set for 3:00 AM!

Tomorrow, I'm hoping to post my race recap of the Princess Half.  I intended to do that yesterday, but I chose to spend some time with Joe instead.  

Question for you: Do you have a certain food you always eat the night before a race and/or a certain food you must have when you go to a certain place (like my Mickey waffle)?


  1. Those waffles are so adorable. They make me so happy just looking at them! This makes me want to go back to disney world so so so bad!

    All the food looks great, I hope the race went well! Congrats. :)

  2. Your pre-race eats look amazing!! I know that there are mixed sciences about the whole "carboloading" thing before a race, but I'm definitely team pasta all the way. I think it makes a huge difference in my running the next morning! Also, I 100% agree that you're basically required to get a Mickey waffle at Disney world!

  3. Looks like you had a great day of meals pre race. The disney waffles are too adorable. I think I'd want to steal some to bring back home w/ me LOL!

    1. Oh I certainly did! They had mini ones for the kids, too :)
