What I Ate Wednesday


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. Not everyday I eat completely healthy, but more often than not I make healthy choices.

As always my Weight Watchers Points into the fold.


I heart breakfast of Greek yogurt and oatmeal and a mandarin orange (not pictured). Breakfast was 6 points





So for lunch I wanted to try something that I had never had before (actually I tried two new things.. and they both can out a win for me Sushi (Spicy California Rolls) and Roasted Seaweed YUMMY!. Lunch was 6 points




Time for some more protein…. this time in the form of two hard boiled eggs (with a little bit more pepper than I wanted).  And after dinner I had some cookies, but I didn’t take a picture of them (Damn you Girl Scout Cookies!!) Snacks were 10 points




Nothing fancy, just ate some left over chili, threw some cheese on it and added some chips..….. Dinner was 12 points




My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I went over my goal (what else is new?)by consuming 1,393 calories And I ate all of my 34 Points .2





The rule of thumb is that you are supposed to drink at least 8 and today I was able to get 8 cups, but with it being colder outside and me try to ramp of the workouts I should be getting more water in.. but I already feel like I’m constantly going to the bathroom as it is.


And that my friends is What I Ate this Wednesday Sunday; be sure to follow me MyFitnessPal or of you are doing Weight Watchers  or FitBit friend me there as well I’m TRJENKINS77

Until Next Time…

You Can’t Hurry Love

Positive Outlooks Blog

A good relationship is when two people accept each other’s past, support each other’s present, and love each other enough to encourage each other’s future. So don’t rush love. Find a partner who encourages you to grow, who won’t cling to you, who will let you go out into the world and trust that you will come back. This is what true love is all about. — Unknown

The math of Ferguson: percentages don’t show how bad it really is

Being A Better Scientist

The other day, I was talking to my colleague Dr Scott Roy. We were working on the second midterm exam for our genetics class at SF State, but got distracted. We started talking about the DOJ report on Ferguson and especially the numbers in the report about racial bias. These are some of the numbers we talked about:

  • 67% of the population in Ferguson is black.
  • Blacks account for 85% of vehicle stops.
  • Blacks account for 90% of citations.
  • Blacks account for 93% of arrests.
  • Blacks account for 95% of “Manner of Walking in Roadway” charges.
  • Blacks account for 94% of all “Failure to Comply” charges.
  • Nearly 90% of documented force used by FPD officers was used against African Americans.
  • Blacks account for 100% of dog bites.
  • Blacks account for 96% of cases where someone was arrested by FPD only because of an outstanding municipal warrant.

So, from reading…

Writing Prompt: There are 26 letters in the English language, and we need every single one of them. Want proof? Choose a letter and write a blog post without using it. (Feeling really brave? Make it a vowel!)


I can totally do this. This isn’t that difficult. To the people out there looking at this, do you know which of the twenty- six I decided not to use? Okay I lied this is more difficult that I thought. I’m totally missing the letter I can’t use. And non of the synonyms I wanted to use seem to fit the occasion This makes me sad.


Until Next Time
