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

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

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

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!

WIAWCalories

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?).

WIAWWater

The rule of thumb is that you are supposed to drink at least 8 and today I was able to get 7 cups in (and only because my doctor told me that I need to start limiting the amount of water I drink…*eye roll*)

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 .

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.

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
