What I Ate Wednesday: I Didn’t Actually Cook Anything

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

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

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.

When did I become the girl that craves shredded mini wheats? Guess that means I’m growing up. My breakfast was 6 points.

My Veggie Straw addiction is real, and it’s strong I’ve purchased two bags from Costco in 3 days, my mother is even eating (and liking them). My snack was 3 points . If previous WIAW I was giving veggie straws a point value of 4 points, not sure how that happened, but it’s been corrected.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a ham sandwich, and since I’m in no mood to cook, I added a little bit of mustard and a wedge of laughing cow cheese and I was good to go…. oh and some more Veggie Straws! My lunch was 8 points

My cousin made chicken noodle soup and brought be some, so I portioned it out into 1 cup servings and stuck them in the freezer, perfect for those cold days when you don’t want to cook. Added some fruit and yogurt to round out the meal. My dinner was 6 points

So not only did nothing I eat today require me to turn on an oven/stove (I’m not counting the microwave) but I used the same bowl throughout the day. WIN!

My general caloric intake is 1200 calories per day, and today I consumed 1,067 calories ! . I used a total of 23 Weight Watcher Points Plus, and had 10 left over. I’ve gone back to using all of my allotted points since the Marathon of Food (Holiday Season) is over.

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.

I  knew when I woke up that morning that I wanted to have a crab cake for dinner, the mozzarella sticks where a total surprise… sometimes I have to give in my need for fried foods (even though these were actually baked.. The whole time they were cooking I kept saying…”CHEESE!” That should totally tell you what I ate first. My dinner was 11 points .

I get to the point where around lunch time I need to start counting my calories and points  and decide if I want to have something like ice cream… lucky for me it was in the budget today…This snack was 4 points.
