What I Ate Wednesday

WIAW_thumb[2]

So clearly this is not an original thought WIAW was originated from Peas and Crayons  and a lot of other bloggers have started doing it as well; and since I can’t be original and I really like the idea of doing this… I decided to give it whirl as well. This will pretty much be a mish-mash of stuff,  some days I will try a new technique or perhaps I’ll be eating something for the first time as is the case today… and someday it might be leftover chili…who knows, and I guess that’s part of the fun. When I first started blogging it was to remain accountable with my exercise and food intake, so this is kind of takes me back… Very little of this is planned… but it’s 100% honest…I always want WIAW to be an accurate account of what I am eating. I think this Wednesday my Weight Watchers leader would be proud… every meal was planned ahead.

 

WIAWBreakfast

So lately it seems like eating, especially in the morning is just not something that my tummy can handle, I just stuck with a Weight Watchers Smoothie, I picked these up during my last Weight Watchers meeting. Now the instructions say to simply add water, but I added a cup of Almond milk to get it a dairy serving. I was shocked that it “thickened” up and it was really yummy. I’ll have to keep these in mind the next time I have a sweet tooth. My breakfast was 3 points .

WIAWSnack

Cheese, who doesn’t love cheese? My snack was 4 points (I did have some tea about an hour later I didn’t photograph it, and it didn’t add any additional points to my snack)

WIAWLunch

Nothing to fancy, just a little salad… I had some veggies that needed to be used… so what better than a salad, with some light dressing. My lunch was 1 point .

It seems like it’s been forever since I had a burrito, but holy cow it’s a lot of points and calories….but I’m gonna enjoy this! My dinner was 16 points So after I ate the entire burrito I felt like I ate so much my stomach was gonna explode….holy cow.

WIAWSnack

Since I started the day having something sweet, seems only right that I would end the day doing the same. This snack was 2 points

WIAWCalories

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I didn’t do squat… so I didn’t earn any extra calories., but I was still about to eat under my caloric goal (1,140). Weight Watchers:  I used a total of 26 points with 8 left over….

Grand Slam

Writing

 

Writing Prompt: The World Series starts tonight! In your own life, what would be the equivalent of a walk-off home run? (For the baseball-averse, that’s a last-minute, back-against-the-wall play that guarantees a dramatic victory.)

Ugh… more sports, is it every a time of the yea when there isn’t so sort of sports on?

But to answer the question… pretty much all of my academic career has been a Grand Slam.  School has never been difficult for ,me, but damn it 75% of it bored the hell out of me, and there is nothing that I hate more than being bored… so when it came time to papers I avoided them for as long as possible, now I know a lot of you would say, “well she’s a procrastinator” and that might be true. but after the assignment was given I would do all the research I needed to do and secure my sources… then literally wait until the night before to get it done.

Hell knowing I had a deadline  made it all the more exciting… and seriously that’s all I wanted was a little excitement..

Until Next Time,
