What I Ate Wednesday–Quick and Easy

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. 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!

What I Ate Wednesday

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

 

.I woke up this morning not hungry, and before I knew it, it was getting late and I needed to take my medication, so I grabbed  yogurt out of the fridge and continued watching Downton Abbey . I just recently started eating these, and they aren’t bad… I do like that they come in a lot of different flavors… By breakfast was 2 points20140917_093150

 

WIAWSnack

By the time snack time rolled around I admit that I was feeling a we bit peckish… I had some Pringles, which are my new favorite thing at the moment, and some Hawaiian Punch, normally I don’t drink it but my mom gave me a 2 litter that she had left over from a party. My snack was 6 points

Since I pretty much missed out of breakfast I decided to have it for lunch… nothing special just some frozen potatoes I had left over and some egg whites with tomato and onion… my own little scramble (well sort of ) With some frozen fruit that I had…. so yummy! My lunch total was 5 points

For dinner I did a lot of swaps, instead of a burger, I had a turkey burger, I swapped a bun for a multi- grain English muffin and used laughing cow cheese instead of sliced cheese, and added lettuce and tomato. The added some cucumbers what were marinating in rice vinegar…it was really yummy and honestly the burger didn’t taste any different (I did use mustard as my condiment). just Dinner was 10 points

This was okay, I was hoping that it would be better…. but beggars can’t be choosers…My last snack was 3 points

 

WIAWCalories

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I was able to “earn” additional 194 calories from working out. . ! .  Although I was “allowed” 1394 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 said I used a total of 26 points with 9 left over…and I earned 2 additional points from working out. Overall I gotta say that I’m really proud of the food choices that I made today (And I feel like I ate a lot of food). Hopefully I will feel the same tomorrow.

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*)

What I Ate Wednesday: Fruits and Vegetables

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 … 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…

“Eat your fruits and vegetables.” You’ve likely heard this statement since childhood. Research shows why it is good advice:

  • Healthy diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.
  • Fruits and vegetables also provide essential vitamins and minerals, fiber, and other substances that are important for good health.
  • Most fruits and vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories and are filling.

So this week I’m going to be taking this to heart…..If you’re unsure what your servings should be check out the Fruit and Vegetable Calculator

WIAW Breakfast

Up until the morning of my vacation I was eating oatmeal for breakfast, and I gotta be honest if I eat another bowl of oatmeal I’m gonna hurt somebody, what I really REALLLY want is some damn bacon… and not turkey bacon… full fat pork bacon…. but not today… Today I’m having granola and yogurt….. boring!

20140616_100649WIAW Lunch

I actually made this for breakfast, but I totally forgot that I had to “leave it” for a few hours…

  • 1 banana peeled
  • 3 apricots
  • 2 oranges peeled
  • 150 ml water (a little bit more than 1/2 cup)

Directions:

Place the fruits in the blender . Process until smooth and then add the water. You can add some ice if you want it really cold. Leave it for 1 or 2 hours and then serve it. Enjoy!

Instead of using water, I wanted to used coconut water…

WIAW Snack 

  Sorry I was seriously so hungry I didn’t realize that a photo wasn’t taken until after I scarfed it down… but I had toast with melted cheese on it … totally yum!

WIAW Dinner  Not super high on the color scale, why is dinner always so darn bland looking?

 

20140616_202611WIAW Snack

I have been chasing this food truck for weeks… WEEKS… and finally I was in the right place at the right time… indecently it’s was right across the street from where my brother works… they are actually in that location 5 days a week, but my brother swears he’s never seen it (how can you miss a big pink food truck with a giant cupcake on it?) or heard of them.

cupcake 20140616_201334

So based on MyFitnessPal and WW I did pretty good… guess when you eat lots of fruit and veggies you can eat more of other things….

I should probably also note that I was also able to eat a little bit more today because I “earned” 9 additional WW points and 841 calories from exercise!

waterAnother thing that I am actively working on is drinking more water…at this point I can hear the water swishing around in my tummy

 

I’m so excited… I have been seriously craving tuna… so I found this great recipe for tuna casserole that I’m gonna try next week

And that my friends is What I Ate this Wednesday; oh and before I forget if you want to follow me on MyFitnessPal . What did you eat today?  What food have you been craving lately? Until Next Time…

What I Ate Wednesday : Food Hangover

You ever have a food hangover? I tend to get them around the holidays, or occasion when a lot of food is present… so much food is presented to me that I don’t want to eat anything!! Nothing at all…nothing seems appetizing or appealing… and I enjoy nothing! Apparently that’s what’s happening to me this week…

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 Breakfast

So for breakfast I didn’t have anything special… just waffles and honey. For some reason honey has replaced my need for syrup, I refused to buy/eat it now… But since I wasn’t filling well and I needed to take my meds I wasn’t in the mood for something heavy..DSC02763

Funny thing is my mother asked me what I had for dinner, and I told her “multigrain waffles with honey” and the look on her face was completely horrifying… so funny… she doesn’t know what’s she’s missing.

WIAW LunchOnce again… nothing special…. a little yogurt and a little granola and bam!! Lunch

WIAW Dinner

And finally a dinner that I didn’t cook.. just put on a plate… and to continue with the theme, not that special… but I did actually enjoy the salad…. chicken… not so much…I think one of the reason’s why I didn’t enjoy the chicken was because I spent more time using my paper towel to soak up the grease off the chicken than I did eating it…

DSC02767DSC02768

 

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

wiaw

Also I should point out that I didn’t really consume that many calories, the chicken that I ate was a thigh and not a breast, I changed my mind at the last minute so  a few less calories…

And that my friends is What I Ate this Wednesday; oh and before I forget if you want to follow me on MyFitnessPal . What did you eat today? Do you have any recipes that you’d like to pass along, leave them in the comments..
