What I Ate Wednesday–Quick and Easy


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


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



My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and according to MyFitnessPal I earned more 178 more calories because I worked out just a teeny tiny bit) But calorie and point wise I think I did a good job today…





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!

Quick and Easy Questions

1.  What time did you go to bed last night? Close to 1:30am or so

2.  What is the last thing that made you smile?  Last nights episode of Sherlock….

3.  What is the last movie you watched?  Safe Haven… and no I don’t want to talk about it… I still haven’t recovered… damn you Nicholas Sparks!

4. What did you have for breakfast today?  I slept through breakfast this morning, which is usual for me, but since I’m feeling a bit off

5. Would you rather mop all of your floors or do laundry?  Really? I’d rather mop the floors at least I can count that as aerobic activity. Here’s the deal with laundry I don’t mind doing the washing and drying.. my real issue is folding and putting it away. I generally leave my clothes in a basket folded and take them out as needed.

6. Do you drink coffee?  I had coffee yesterday and the day before, and honestly that’s the first time that I’ve had a coffee drink since July. I enjoy coffee type drinks , heck I have a gold Starbucks card. But I have really cut down because of the empty calories in the yummy, frothy coffee drinks  and it’s too cold here in Chicago for the cold drinks..

7.  Will you watch the Superbowl?  No, but I do have a Super bowl Sunday tradition, I go to my parents house… my stepdad goes somewhere to watch the game and my mom and I watch the Puppy Bowl, all while discussing how cute the animals are, then we watch an equally cute marathon until we overdose on cuteness… last year I think we watched like 12 episodes of two cute back –to – back (If you’re ever having a really crappy day I suggest watching this show… instant smile)

8. How often do you shop for groceries? Two times a month, not counting those times when I desperately need something                                     imagesfitbug

9.  What kind of workout will you do today?  My normal routine is the 30 minute circuit then 1 hour of aerobic activity at the gym then later in the day I do 30 minutes of stretching using my SWorkit app. But today I’m counting this as a rest day, I’m exhausted and my entire body hurts
10.  Do  you use a fitness tracker?  So weird that this question popped up. Because I have been looking to get one. At first I was gonna get the FitBug because it was a bit cheaper and it was small and compact and had all the features that I wanted for all under 50 bucks, then I realized that there was no Amazon app for it, and the Android app wasn’t compatible with my particular Galaxy model, and it wouldn’t allow me to look at the actual website to determine “usability” without actually purchasing the darn thing so I scratched that. I decided to spend 10 bucks more and get the Fitbug, it works on all my devices and everyone that has one has positive things to say about it… so I’ll be ordering that in the next week. I’m excited to get my hands on it!’


Hopefully your week has started off better than mine, until next time!
