What I Ate Wednesday: The Day I Refused To Cook

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

As always my Weight Watchers Points into the fold.

 

WIAWBreakfast

When did I become the girl that craves shredded mini wheats? Guess that means I’m growing up. My breakfast was 6 points.

My Veggie Straw addiction is real, and it’s strong I’ve purchased two bags from Costco in 3 days, my mother is even eating (and liking them). My snack was 3 points . If previous WIAW I was giving veggie straws a point value of 4 points, not sure how that happened, but it’s been corrected.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a ham sandwich, and since I’m in no mood to cook, I added a little bit of mustard and a wedge of laughing cow cheese and I was good to go…. oh and some more Veggie Straws! My lunch was 8 points

My cousin made chicken noodle soup and brought be some, so I portioned it out into 1 cup servings and stuck them in the freezer, perfect for those cold days when you don’t want to cook. Added some fruit and yogurt to round out the meal. My dinner was 6 points

So not only did nothing I eat today require me to turn on an oven/stove (I’m not counting the microwave) but I used the same bowl throughout the day. WIN!

 

WIAWCalories

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I consumed 1,067 calories ! . I used a total of 23 Weight Watcher Points Plus, and had 10 left over. I’ve gone back to using all of my allotted points since the Marathon of Food (Holiday Season) is over.

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.

What I Ate Wednesday–Quick and Easy

WIAWBreakfast

When it comes to breakfast I normal am not hungry until I am (does that make any sense) then  I pass hungry and go straight to starving so quick and easy is always good for me when it comes to breakfast. So frosted mini wheat with light almond milk and sugar free apple sauce was what I hate, quick easy and filling. My breakfast was 6 points.

Having breakfast for lunch has been something I’ve been doing for a white now, I don’t know why, there is not rhyme or reason to it… but I like it. My lunch was 8 points

Subway is always my quick and easy standby “fast food: and usually it’s only 7 points with the sandwich, diet coke and apples,  but this week I wanted to rebel I didn’t want apples I wanted chips…. even if they were five points, where they work it … yes, they were but this is an indulgence that I won’t be having every week…. My dinner was 12 points.20141124_191311_resized

The two things that I am seriously addicted to … seriously I’m not eating any more cheese. My snack was 3 points

There is nothing exciting about water, I will say that I started back drinking Crystal Light the other day and I drank like a half a gallon and promptly broke out in hives… so just water for the time being …. stupid sensitive body!

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 .

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)

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.

What I Ate Wednesday : I Think I Might Be Getting Sick

WIAWBreakfast

So there’s a story….. there’s ALWAYS a story… I’ve been getting up at 7:30 and I’m usually out of the house 20 minutes later, so I’ve been preparing my breakfasts the night before, to save some time before I hit the gym. I decided to have a Slim Fast shake for breakfast and since I still had some frozen cherries I added a few in there to give it a little color and flavor….  and I was really excited to drink my cherry flavored shake. Well when I woke up the next morning my yummy looking pink shake turned a funky gray color. I don’t have a clue as to why it happened, I’m chalking it up some odd chemical reaction… but gray is generally not a color I associate with the food that I enjoy eating… I took it to the gym with me and was only able to get down about half of it before I started to feel really sick. My breakfast was 6 points 20141008_08064620141008_080705

Around dinner time I was finally feeling hungry…when something works I stick with it…. I had subway again this week; and it was chocked full of veggies…;and it was still yummy My dinner was 7 points

For me caramel apples are the quintessential fall treat… I LOVE them, and honestly considering that my stomach was super funky and I was still really queasy I ate it anyway… was I hungry….nope, this is a prime example of my being greedy. My snack was 3 points!

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I was able to “earn” additional 604 calories from working out.! .  Although I was “allowed” 1804  calories I was only about to got down 500 Weight Watchers I used a total of 16 points with 18 left over….and I earned 5 additional points from working out (Now I know what your saying…. girl you need to be eating more… I know I know, but when your stomach is super funky what can you do?).

I think this Wednesday my Weight Watchers leader would be proud… every meal was planned ahead.

Something that I realized this week…. ever since I started my weight loss journey I have taken on the motto, “If I bite it, I write it”…. but for the past several months I haven’t been writing down what I’m drink (non water) and I think that has really sort of sabotaged my weight loss… well on of the many things.

WIAWBreakfast

This morning when I was supposed to be eating I was busy cleaning out my closet so the next thing that I know it was time to leave, then it was time to leave for my meetings so I didn’t eat breakfast until around 11am. Nothing special, just some cereal…. this month I’m trying Special K Cinnamon and Pecan (it’s really good) with some coffee  My breakfast was 6 points .

This was the last bag of cookies that I had… and please believe when I said that I enjoyed them! My snack was 4 points

Since I was out I got Subway, this time I left out the cheese, added a little vinegar and mustard and loaded up on the veggies. and the part that really hurt the worst is I didn’t get chips, instead I got the apples and had a Diet Coke… My lunch was 7 points . I will say that this was a pretty decent meal for the small amount of points that I used.

20141001_144329

WIAWDinner Guess my Chicken on Wednesday streak is finally over. Today I’m having catfish that I baked and I used the Lemon Rosemary seasoning that I got in my Love With Food box , with some brown rice and some beets (my plate needed some serious color, and I really love beets!) My dinner was  10 points

So I brought these frozen cherries a while ago, I initially was gonna recreate the  beat berry smoothies that I got from Mariano’s but I wanted to to have them as  snack instead… let’s be honest they weren’t that great.. Sorry the picture is so weird, I put them in a zip lock bag after I measured a cup of them. This snack was 2 points
