What I Ate Wednesday: I Had a Few Indulgences




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 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..


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”



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.






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

Food for the Soul (and the Stomach)



Writing Prompt:Tell us about your favorite meal, either to eat or to prepare. Does it just taste great, or does it have other associations?


I love macaroni and cheese, seriously love it . I actually mentioned in in a pervious post, I don’t think there is a way to mess it up…. it’s good in all it’s varieties.  and given the chance I would eat it as often as possible. A week or so ago I was at the grocery store and I saw that they had a boxes of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese on sale, so I ran to buy it…for some reason not only macaroni was on my mind, macaroni and hot dogs, they idea od eating those two foods together (although I’m sure it would have thrown my Weight Watchers points all out of whackjust reminded me of comfort, and my childhood. so I causally asked my mother if she feed up hot dogs and mac and cheese…. and to my shock and awe she said she never did (at least not together) So why the heck would I associate this meal…. this yummy, cheesy, sodium filled bowl of goodness? Who knows, maybe I had it at a friends house and just don’t remember all I know… I consider this childhood in childhood in a bowl

Here’s the recipe if you’re interested



Until Next Time
