What I Ate Wednesday

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.

This week I’m going to incorporate my Weight Watchers Points into the fold

WIAWBreakfast

Holy crap I was hungry this morning, and I’m doing my best to sort of mi it up every morning, I tend to have oatmeal in the morning, but I don’t want to get bored with it so I decided to have turkey bacon (doesn’t taste like real yummy pork bacon…. but it’ll do)  My breakfast was 7 points (sorry that the picture is blurry, I was seriously shaky before breakfast)

WIAWSnack

Since I was super hungry after I worked out I made sure to have a protein packed snack… I had the same thing yesterday and I was surprised by how full it left me,  I ended up eating lunch and dinner later than I normally would. My snack was 9 points

WIAWCalories

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I was able to “earn” additional 855 calories from working out. (y’all would be proud I was a beast today… seriously the scale better so my effort on Sunday!) . ! .  Although I was “allowed” 2055 (Holy Cow! That’s a lot) calories I did excellent job today considering I’ve has two snacks I was still able to come in less than 1200 calories. Weight Watchers I used a total of 34 points with 1 left over….and I earned 7 additional points from working out. Overall I so proud of the activity that I’ve been putting out this week… making good food choices hasn’t been easy, but I’m doing my best, but overall I think that I’m doing okay.WIAW

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*)

WIAWBreakfast

You ever have one of those mornings where not matter what you decide to wake up it’s still way too early… today was just one of those days. I think subconsciously I knew /I had a ton of crap to do and just didn’t want to face the day. Since I was still smarting off from the fact that my cat woke me up (damn her and her hunger!!) and I wasn’t rally that hungry I just had a yogurt.

You ever have a craving that only bacon can cure? I know you do, because you’re my people… and for the record I’m not talking about turkey bacon (although I do it eat, but the enjoyment level is not the same) I generally don’t buy or eat bacon, but I saw it  at the grocery store and it was calling my name out from the refrigerated shelf… plus it was maple… MAPLE BACON… I had to eat buy it. So I made a poor man’s BLT… which is just Bacon…

I grabbed a  Flatout out a tiny dollop of mayo and ate that sucker like a taco…yummm!
