What I Ate Wednesday : Dinner At Moms

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 for weeks I had been seeing this post about two ingredient cakes… Two ingredients?… hell it can’t get any easier than this! So I tried it and I liked them… this version is pumpkin spice… So Indecided to have that for breakfast with a super large cup of coffee…. Man I needed it this NaNoWriMo has me in a tizzy! My breakfast was 6 points!

WIAWDinner

My mom is a wild card, and since I’m the only one in the family it’s unfair for me to dictate what she cooks (plus I LOVE when she cooks) so on the days that I have dinner at her house, I try to eat accordingly so that I can have some wiggle room when it comes to dinner… And tonight she didn’t disappoint. Steak, Potatoes, Salad and Garlic Bread.. how many times can a person say yummm before they start to sound utterly obnoxious?  My dinner was 16 points. and it was totally worth it!

WIAWSnack

I LOVE Nilla Wafers… seriously they are the best snack, but not everything translated to the low fat version… these are “stiff” This snack was 3 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., and despite what I ate I was still under my calorie goal (1150 calories). Even though I seriously loaded up on carbs. Weight Watchers:  I used a total of 31 points with 2 left over….today was a good day!

Writing

 

Writing Prompt: Of the people who are close to you, who is the person most unlike you? What makes it possible for you to get along?

It’s weird that this prompt came up because I am struggling with this issue. My youngest brother and I are the one that I think is the most unlike me. The odd thing is that we are extremely similar; we are both solitary and introverted people and you would think that we would totally get each other. But we don’t I enjoy my alone time, but I do like spending time with my family and I do like to communicate, but he doesn’t … at all. He’s one of those people that if you ask him something he’ll pretty reply to you in five words…. and its very frustrating.

If I had meet him at school or ay work, I know for a fact that we wouldn’t be friends, and more than likely we wouldn’t get along, but at the end of the day he’s my brother, we live together and I love him, although he isn’t the most talkative person or the most emotional demonstrative person I’ve learned to pick and choice my battles with him, and so what we don’t talk about the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but I hope that he knows that he come to me for anything, and I’m always available to help. Maybe one day things will be different…. and I’m willing to wait, I’m patient… but I promise you, it if was some random person I would have written them off long ago.

Family… what can you do?

Until Next Time….
