What I Ate Wednesday: Oh My GERD

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

 

I had a Banana for breakfast, I ate it slow hoping that it wouldn’t make me sick to my stomach…. WRONG!!

I had applesauce, just because it was lunch time and I figured it was a good idea to eat something before I left to go to my doctors appointment.

Now for the past few days I’ve noticed that I actually start to feel a slight tingling of hunger, so I try to have some protein. Since it’s game night and I’m not at home I usually pack my dinner and take it to my cousin’s house, so I made a quick salad and NuWave’d a pork chop added an hard boiled egg…. instant salad. I fared pretty well with Dinner, I was proud that it didn’t hurt me, and I was proud that I ate it all..and enjoyed it!

So my total Smart Point Consumption for the day was a measly 4

WIAWCalories

My calories, much like my points is woofully low, and not my usual.. I’m hoping next week will be better,

WIAWWater

Even though I’m not hungry, I am beyond thirsty, I’m still drinking the majority of my water at night….and I’ll drink around 32 ounces during the time I’m sleeping. I actually wake up to drink water….. not sure what’s going there

What I Ate Wednesday: I Had a Few Indulgences

WIAWBreakfast

Collagebreak

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..

WIAWLunch

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.

WIAWDinner

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)

Collagedinner

 

So totally Points consumed today: 38. Which means I deducted 4 points from my Anytime Points “bank”

 

WIAWCalories

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.

WIAWWater

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

WIAWBreakfast

Lately it seems that I have a piece of fruit before I workout and have a “smoothie” when I return, those Weight Watchers Smoothies are really feeling and they don’t taste bad.. Breakfast was 2 points

WIAWSnack

I was craving coffee bad, It was one of those days when you realize you were super busy and time went by faster than you expected and you actually missed lunch….. those are pretty rare for me, my stomach will always let me know when it’s time for food….So I just had a small coffee and a yogurt. My Snack was 3 Points

Subway has really become my “go-to” meal when I don’t want to cook or when I want “fast food” it doesn’t hurt that it’s right around the corner. So I had a six inch steal and cheese (yes I actually but cheese on my sandwich… but can you have a steak sammich without cheese? It just seems wrong), Baked Lays and a Diet Coke. Dinner was 14 points

Clearly you can tell that I didn’t have anything fancy today, but I will give myself extra points for not cooking a darn thing!

 

WIAWCalories

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I went  ate 854 calories, MyFitness Pal, actually gave me a “warning” telling me I wasn’t eating enough….. one day isn’t gonna hurt me.

I have 34 points  a day that I can consume, I ate 19 Points and had 15 left over (today was a fluke and it will never happen again)123

The rule of thumb is that you are supposed to drink at least 8 and today I was able to get 8 cups, and lately that has been difficult for me to get in.

WIAWBreakfast

I went out for a super early lake front walk with my cousin and the plan was to grab breakfast after so I just had something because I knew I had to so I grabbed a peach and went on my way. Breakfast was 0 points

WIAWLunch

Because things never really turn out the way that you plan, Breakfast became lunch… and we ate at this hole in the wall diner that is like the size of my bedroom and had lunch, I was craving eggs (which seems to be the normal these days)  Lunch was 27 points (not sure how accurate that is, but I would rather go over in my points assumption that to guess to little)

II knew I had pretty much eaten up all of my points/ and calories at lunch so I went for something quick and simple, left over white rice and roasted seaweed, with a side of diet coke. Dinner was 8 points

WIAWCalories

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I went over my goal (what else is new?)by consuming 1,766 calories. Thank goodness for some physical activity I was able to “bump” that down to 1,395 calories.

I have 34 points  a day that I can consume, I ate all of those at used 4 of my Weekly Points, so it really wasn’t that bad. I “earned” some activity points, but didn’t calculate them that day because I was still upset that my FitBit was broken.12

Speaking of water, if you are having a hard time getting your water in I would suggest this cute like app called Plant Nanny it’s available for IPhone and Andriod
