What I Ate Wednesday: I Had a Few Indulgences

 

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

Collagebreak

I knew that today was going to be a busy day so I got all my favorites together and made a scramble” filled with protein from the egg whites and the lean ham. Every thing was measured before it was cooked and I was surprised by how much there was. The point was to fill up on breakfast and so that I wouldn’t over indulge since I knew that I was going out for lunch. 3 Smart Points and all that food, Seriously I think I did pretty good..

WIAWLunch

CollagelunchSee the thing is I have a problem, a serious problem and it’s called macaroni and cheese, and I have said this many times, to many people but I don’t think there is a such thing as bad macaroni… it doesn’t exist, and so I eat it despite the fact that I know it’s going to be a crap ton of points (which is why I don’t eat it that often, but when I do I enjoy it…. And since I knew a lot of my points were going to be devoted to the Mac and Cheese I pilled on the veggies, and had a 0 point salad, and since I didn’t want to add a lot of points with the dressing I added about 1/4 cup of cottage cheese. Then I saw they had collard greens too…. those weren’t so great but I ate them anyway. Plus there was a diet coke thrown in there for shits and giggles.. Total Damage: 11 Smart Points.

I was supposed to be done with food for the day… but someone went out and go chicken, then I decided that I wanted a sundae….. this didn’t end well, but in all honesty I was hungry…. and I guess if I needed to I go delve into those “Anytime Points” And as you can tell these are stock photos…. well that’s because I totally forgot to take pictures, I was busy feeding my face. Damage: 24 Smart Points (and totally not worth it)

So totally Points consumed today: 38. Which means I deducted 4 points from my Anytime Points “bank”

 

WIAWCalories

I think the only thing that saved me today was that I was fairly active, I did a lot of walking over 10,000 steps, and I spent a lot of time that morning cleaning my house, laundry, mopping,sweeping… hell I did it all…. but my general coloric intake these days are around 13,000 calories, so overall I didn’t do too bad, and this is not a typical day for me food wise, so indulging once in a while is okay.

WIAWWater

I had a lot of salty food today, and for some reason I drink the majority of my water in the evenings…

What I Ate Wednesday: Fruits and Vegetables

WIAW

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 … 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…

“Eat your fruits and vegetables.” You’ve likely heard this statement since childhood. Research shows why it is good advice:

  • Healthy diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.
  • Fruits and vegetables also provide essential vitamins and minerals, fiber, and other substances that are important for good health.
  • Most fruits and vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories and are filling.

So this week I’m going to be taking this to heart…..If you’re unsure what your servings should be check out the Fruit and Vegetable Calculator

WIAW Breakfast

Up until the morning of my vacation I was eating oatmeal for breakfast, and I gotta be honest if I eat another bowl of oatmeal I’m gonna hurt somebody, what I really REALLLY want is some damn bacon… and not turkey bacon… full fat pork bacon…. but not today… Today I’m having granola and yogurt….. boring!

20140616_100649WIAW Lunch

I actually made this for breakfast, but I totally forgot that I had to “leave it” for a few hours…

  • 1 banana peeled
  • 3 apricots
  • 2 oranges peeled
  • 150 ml water (a little bit more than 1/2 cup)

Directions:

Place the fruits in the blender . Process until smooth and then add the water. You can add some ice if you want it really cold. Leave it for 1 or 2 hours and then serve it. Enjoy!

Instead of using water, I wanted to used coconut water…

WIAW Snack 

  Sorry I was seriously so hungry I didn’t realize that a photo wasn’t taken until after I scarfed it down… but I had toast with melted cheese on it … totally yum!

WIAW Dinner  Not super high on the color scale, why is dinner always so darn bland looking?

 

20140616_202611WIAW Snack

I have been chasing this food truck for weeks… WEEKS… and finally I was in the right place at the right time… indecently it’s was right across the street from where my brother works… they are actually in that location 5 days a week, but my brother swears he’s never seen it (how can you miss a big pink food truck with a giant cupcake on it?) or heard of them.

So based on MyFitnessPal and WW I did pretty good… guess when you eat lots of fruit and veggies you can eat more of other things….

I should probably also note that I was also able to eat a little bit more today because I “earned” 9 additional WW points and 841 calories from exercise!

waterAnother thing that I am actively working on is drinking more water…at this point I can hear the water swishing around in my tummy

 

I’m so excited… I have been seriously craving tuna… so I found this great recipe for tuna casserole that I’m gonna try next week

And that my friends is What I Ate this Wednesday; oh and before I forget if you want to follow me on MyFitnessPal . What did you eat today?  What food have you been craving lately? Until Next Time…
