Ready to see what I ate Wednesday? Actually, I ate this Tuesday, but I’m pretty much having the exact same thing today. Big surprise, eh?

After nearly entering a carb-coma** Monday, I decided to hit up spin class after work Tuesday. I usually hate exercising out after work, but I needed the extra burn of spin. 24.4 miles later, I definitely felt the burn! I also did this pilates workout in the morning and strength training right before the spin class.

**Seriously, I don’t know what came over me, but I had the maniac munchies on Monday!

Breakfast was half of a chewy Eat.Think.Smile bar (80 calories) before my workout. Second breakfast included plain, fat-free Greek yogurt (95 cal) with Kashi GoLean (70 cal) and 1 cup of blueberries (85 cal). That is such a filling breakfast!

Lunch was a turkey, cheese, and lettuce sandwich on Great Harvest Bread Co. bread (305 cal). That bread is daaaaang good! I paired it with Green Giant Baby Brussels (50 cal). Those frozen sprouts come in convenient single-serving pouches you can pop right into the microwave.

Snack was 7 almonds (50 cal) and a pear (105 cal). I also downed a rice cake (35 cal) as I was walking out of the office. It was just enough to get me through my workout… barely.

Dinner was a Tex-Mex scramble that I like to call Tiffos Rancheros. It came to approximately 380 calories and was a great post-workout, protein-packed meal. I can’t wait to make it again tonight!

This dinner made me very happy.

I took 3 pics of dinner because I’m a dork in hopes that at least 1 would look somewhat appealing.

See the fat-free re-fried beans poking out?

This dinner would have made someone else happy (she loves scrambled eggs), but I don’t think she’d like the salsa!

Sorry Leia - No Eggs for You!

My total daily calories only came to about 1255, which would normally be too low. However, given the aforementioned carb-coma and calorie overload yesterday, my body just didn’t feel like it needed much else. (Thank goodness!) Sometimes you’ve just gotta listen to the belly!

Do you ever have “hungry days” when you just don’t ever feel full? Goodness knows I do!

What’s the best thing you’ve had lately?

  1. That’s my kinda breakfast yum! Haha I just love your kitty, every week she’s always stalking for some scraps 😀
    Hope your carb coma goes away soon, I hate those with a passion. Happy WIAW girl!

  2. Oh yes, definitely have days when I could eat house and home. I hope it all balances out in the end somehow.

  3. I do the same… if I have a heavy day of eats then I’ll go light the next day… gotta balance it out!!

  4. I definitely have days where I could just keep eating and eating! But then there are other days where I’m not hungry at all! I just do what my body tells me to do and it usually works out 🙂

  5. Aw, too bad Leia couldn’t have any eggs. They look delicious!

  6. I love Greek yogurt with fruit and granola. It really does keep you full for such a long time and all that protein is so good for ya!

    Your scramble looks awesome! I definitely have days where I just can’t quit eating. I just go with the flow and listen to my body because it’s obviously needing something.

  7. Tiffos Rancheros..haha, that made me laugh 🙂 They look delicious though!

  8. I have hungry days all the time. 🙂

    I love those “Tiffos Rancheros!” That made me laugh, and they definitely DO look appealing…

  9. I have those days ALL the time. It can be frustrating, but it’s always fun to eat delicious food. Drinking copious amounts of beer can sometimes quell the hunger as well 🙂

  10. I have ravenous hungry days all of the time! I feel like I am never satisfied…ugh!
    And that is certainly my kind of breakfast 🙂

  11. My hungry days are a LOT more frequent lately..it’s terrible at night. I just go to town on food…usually it’s been the PB jars..whoops!

  12. I love brussel sprouts! Makes me happy to see someone else enjoying a food with such a bad name 😀 And I definitely have days where I could eat non-stop. I try to listen to my body on those days and eat a bit more–clearly it needs something. And I made squash and corn bread last night that was pretty darn tasty AND healthy–definitely topping the list for the week (so far)

    • Kev & I have often discussed, would kids hate veggies (especially sprouts) so much if their friends/media/other influences didn’t give them such a bad rap? Makes you wonder…

  13. Thanks so much for your comment! I just spent the past 20 minutes reading your site! I love it! I am excited to start reading it all the time!
    Love the brown hair too! 🙂
    I often have hungry days! I think sometimes its more that I am just not satisfied though. Your Tiffos Rancheros looked delicious and so satisfying!

  14. Hahaha I feel like I’m ALWAYS A bottomless pit!! There are definitely days when I Feel like I can’t get filled up. I usually eat lots of fiber-ful things, so that sometimes helps. Although there are days when I think I overload on fiber, and then I’m just uncomfortable and bloated!

  15. Tiffos Rancheros? Too cute! Looks great too. A cat that likes eggs? Hysterical!

  16. I think that’s totally the way to be. If you go a little above and beyond one day, you can back off on another as a trade-off. Your body knows what is best! Besides, it’s not like you were depriving yourself. That scramble looked delish!

  17. YES – hungry days are totally the story of my life sometimes!

  18. I always have those hungry days! I can’t stop eating anything and everything in my path…especially the salty stuff.

  19. I have hungry days pretty much every day 🙂

  20. I’m always hungry the day after an intense workout! It seems like no matter what I eat I want more.

  21. I pretty much have one of those days every day 🙂 Actually, today was probably the first time I didn’t feel hungry for dinner- but I ate anyway, haha!

  22. I would STARVE on 1200 calories!! But whatever works for ya! Your Rancheros look really yummy! I’ve been on a major mexican food kick lately!

  23. I tend to get those ravenous hunger days like once a week! I take that as a signal that I should just snack all day so that I never allow my stomach to be empty! 🙂

  24. OOOH yum, all your eats look so fresh and simple! that tex mex scramble looks awesome! ooooh hell yes I have real hunger days, the day after a weight/strength training workout. Im like a unstoppable monster, i kinda get a guilty feeling but I still gotta learn to just listen to my body and fuel it how its asking to be.
