What I Ate Wednesday: Oh My GERD


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 had a Banana for breakfast, I ate it slow hoping that it wouldn’t make me sick to my stomach…. WRONG!!






I had applesauce, just because it was lunch time and I figured it was a good idea to eat something before I left to go to my doctors appointment.





Now for the past few days I’ve noticed that I actually start to feel a slight tingling of hunger, so I try to have some protein. Since it’s game night and I’m not at home I usually pack my dinner and take it to my cousin’s house, so I made a quick salad and NuWave’d a pork chop added an hard boiled egg…. instant salad. I fared pretty well with Dinner, I was proud that it didn’t hurt me, and I was proud that I ate it all..and enjoyed it!




So my total Smart Point Consumption for the day was a measly 4


My calories, much like my points is woofully low, and not my usual.. I’m hoping next week will be better,






Even though I’m not hungry, I am beyond thirsty, I’m still drinking the majority of my water at night….and I’ll drink around 32 ounces during the time I’m sleeping. I actually wake up to drink water….. not sure what’s going there



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

A Bird, a Plane, You!





Writing Prompt: You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:

  • the ability to speak and understand any language
  • the ability to travel through time
  • the ability to make any two people agree with each other




First off you’re telling me that snark is not a super power? Well F*CK!. Now I have to rethink my entire existence…. this may take a while, because for real my mind is blown… BLOWN!

The options are great, but how come something like, “judging people silently with a single glance…. I got that one down pact….fine, FINE!! I’ll pick, “the ability to speak and understand any language “  There seems to be a certain freedom you have when you are a polygot, you can navigate between different cultures more easily, it my small amount of travel, I have found that people appreciate when foreigners know the language (or even have a tiny grasp of language ) of the country that they are visiting, and I always advise people to learn some key phrases…. just in case. 

Benefits  of your super power include:

  • Your interactions with people of different cultures go deeper
  • You feel a sense of connection with your heritage, history and family.
  • Your self-expression excitingly takes on a multitude of forms

In short I would be a bad ass in multiple languages..gosh can you imagine… Oh my goodness…. it’s my SUPER POWER!!

While I am passively learning Korean/Hangul I’m finding it somewhat frustrating because the spoken language I’m sorta getting, it’s the written language that has been just staring, I think it would be probably  because  Korean is an agglutinative language. And the verb information such as tense, mood and the social relation between speaker and listener is added successively to the end of the verb. This is in contrast to English which makes extensive use of auxiliaries to convey verb meaning. And there is not such thing as articles in the Korean language, so switching my sentence structure around seems inherently “wrong”. And while we are talking about learning other languages, I thought (probably for a half of a day )about learning Chinese, but it scared me to the point where I nearly cried)… okay so there are several different dialects .. but the tones, are what get me….so I let that dream go

But back to this super power, let’s be honest, we live in a world were there is a lot of conflict, I’m not saying that it would help, but being able to communicate with someone easily learning about their daily life and their struggles, opens up your world, it opens up the possibilities of what we can do (to help each other, and make the world a better place) And that’s probably the best super power of them all

(The Written )Language is strange yet beautiful… this is the same phrase in different languages

“one language is not enough”

один язык никогда не бывает достаточно

ett språk är aldrig nog

één taal is nooit genoeg

ett språk er aldri nok

et sprog er aldrig nok


하나의 언어는 충분히 결코




“If we spoke a different language, we would perceive a somewhat different world.”

Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein



Until next time; let’s practice our super powers,

Wordless Wednesday









Like the Mississippi, it just keeps rolling along. Let it roll. Let it roll on full flood, inexorable, irresistible, benignant, to broader lands and better days.





Until Next Time,
