What I Ate Wednesday: Girl You in the Hospital Edition

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

First of all I was starving, but you have to pick and choice from the evil that is on the hospital food list for patients, so just like if I was at home I ate light. Banana, some yogurt (that I only had a few spoonful’s of, a few sips of coffee almost a whole biscuit. This while she-bang was 5 points (it was probably more, but you can really find hospital biscuit on the Weight Watchers database)

Lunch was pretty decent. I ate it all…It’s been forever since I’ve had Lorna Doone cookies, but alas my tummy would only allow me to have 2 *sad face* My lunch was 12 points. 20150209_124153

Dinner feet for a kid Chicken tenders with mac and cheese with a little spinach to make it grown up. I didn’t eat the bread or drink the milk.. I don’t eat anything that’s banana flavored (but I do eat bananas…. and no it’s no weird and grape juice is gross) My dinner was 12 points.

WIAWCalories

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I consumed 1,275 calories; And to be honest this is just an estimate; it could have been more it could have been less, it’s hard to tell when you aren’t cooking and preparing your own food (not to mention not know exactly how much you are consuming). And I ate 29 Points out of the 33 that are allotted to me,

I know that it’s but unusual for someone to be in the hospital, counting points and calories, heck that should be the one time when you really don’t care, but it’s second nature for me to do it… even when I’m feeling my absolute worst.

WIAWWater

The rule of thumb is that you are supposed to drink at least 8 and today I was able to get 8 cups, but with it being colder outside and me try to ramp of the workouts I should be getting more water in.. but I already feel like I’m constantly going to the bathroom as it is.

Lately I’ve been finding that the best way to deal with my morning nausea is simply to eat light. So I had 3 cuties and a bottle of water. My breakfast was 0 points

And because I’m a big fat pig I ate half of a frozen pizza for dinner.. My dinner was 20 points .!! (You you’re probably wondering where the picture of the pizza was, and I took one and when the time came I transferred the picture to my computer, but apparently in my haste it was a picture of a bottle of polish, and the pizza one got deleted….but pretty much all frozen pizza looks the same)

WIAWCalories

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I didn’t do squat, so didn’t earn additional points . And today I made it …with 1,166 calories . I used a total of 29 Weight Watcher Points Plus (with an activity point swapped in there)  I should note that due to the holidays, partly to avoid temptation I temporarily reduced the amount of points per day from 33 to 29.d9

What I Ate Wednesday–Quick and Easy

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

WIAWBreakfast

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

WIAWSnack

The two things that I am seriously addicted to … seriously I’m not eating any more cheese. My snack was 3 points

WIAWCalories

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…

WIAWWater

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!

WIAWBreakfast

So the other day I was at my mom’s house and I noticed that she had all these greens that where about to go bad in her fridge, so I took about 5 or 6 leaves of spinach , figured I would use them in my salad or something, then I realized I could chop them up and make them into an omelet along with a weight watchers cheese stick. Paired with toast and some peach preserves… BAM! Breakfast!! Breakfast was 5 points.

One pear coming right up! My snack was 0 points

I just felt like having oatmeal for lunch, it’s super cold outside.. so instead of the normal 1 packet I had I was a piggy and had two, it was very filling. My lunch was 8 points

When I woke up this morning I knew what I wanted for dinner and honestly I thought about skipping this week because let’s be honest onion rings and White Castles are not the healthiest, but it’s all about honesty here.  My dinner was 17 points!

WIAWSnack

So for my final snack I had tea and popcorn, a weird combination I know, but I was finishing the last episodes of Dream High… and didn’t realize until after I demolished it that I didn’t take a picture of the popcorn…. but at least you have the tea. My snack was 2 points

20141118_101449

WIAWCalories

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and according to MyFitnessPal I earned more 797 more calories because I worked out (ugh) But that only translated to 1 additional point for Weight Watchers…. something doesn’t smell right here…

Also for the keen observers,  you will notice that the salad is not on here… yeah I added that to my meal at the last minute… you know how it is when you realize you have a plate full of not so healthy indulgences you need to put something on it to try to even it out …

What I Ate Wednesday : Nothing Special

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 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…

WIAW BreakfastSo I read this article about the benefits for eating oatmeal in the morning, I gotta say it makes me full without making me feel bloated and that’s an added plus, especially on the days when I’m going to the gym. Benefits include:

  1. Low calorie food; stops cravings.
  2. Provides high levels of fiber, low levels of fat, and high levels of protein
  3. Stabilizes blood sugar
  4. Enhances immune response to disease.

WIAW Lunchlunch was nothing special, just a brat (which was tad bit salty)  with some mustard, with some chips… like I said … nothing fancy.

WIAW Dinner

Ever have one of those days when you’re hungry and don’t want to cook? Yep, me too ! Thank goodness for grills and microwaves…

I also tried something different spinach soufflé, it wasn’t’ bad but it I couldn’t get with the texture of it… but at least my dinner was colorful…. plus it was nice to have some sweet potatoes…yumm!

DSC02732I will say this past week I have been going to bed super early, so my meals times are seriously altered, must have something to do with me getting back into the gym and working out, so far I’ve run two 5k’s this week, with plans to do another one this Friday…

But any who….  here is my caloric intake for today….
