WIAT&W

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?

WIAW: Sandwich Edition

Yeehaw y’all – it is wiiiii-aaawwww (WIAW) time again.  Before I share my eats of the week, I’d like to share the link to the awesome Peas & Crayons WIAW Blog Party.  I recommend you hop over to check out all the other great eats.

Breakfast for the week includes a pre-workout rice cake and a post-workout parfait.  The parfait is about 95 calories worth of non-fat, plain Greek yogurt, 70 calories worth of Kashi GoLean cereal, and 85 calories worth of blueberries.  It’s berry filling.  (Forgive my embarrassing pun, but there really are a lot of berries in there!)

Lunch is both simple and wonderful.  I hadn’t purchased Great Harvest Bread Co. bread before, but I am sooooo glad I did this weekend.  I got a loaf of the honey whole wheat.  It was delicious and contained only 5 ingredients!

I’m having one large slice with 1 can of tuna, 2 or 3 TBS chipotle yummus, 1 or 2 leaves of iceberg lettuce.  I pair my simple sandwich with side of sliced bell pepper or zucchini.

filling, fibrous, and fatty (healthy fatty, that is)

Snack has been pretty awesome.  It involves 1 peach and 1 half of a nutrition bar.  Want more information about the bar?  Well you can’t have it.

Just Peachy

Sorry – that was the bratty only-child in me.  I’ll actually be happy to share the details, but you’ll have to wait.  (Psssst… The details are worth the wait because it involves a delicious giveaway.)

I’ve been utilizing leftovers for dinner this week, but I haven’t been abusing them.  I had the same thing Monday and Tuesday, which was a grilled onion and chicken sandwich on more of that awesome bread with lite cheddar cheese.  That too went with a side of green beans.

I’m also having the same thing tonight as Thursday, which will be some sort of Shirataki noodle stir-fry.  I’m pretty excited to try those suckers out!  I’ll let you know what I think of them tomorrow.

Oh, and I definitely had some after-dinner treats.  Monday was a bar I can’t tell you about yet, and Tuesday was a 100-calorie bag of popcorn.  Mmmmm… salty goodness!  My last note, I was so proud of myself for turning down office sweets yesterday.  Woohoo!!!

Do you typically snack after dinner?  If so, what’s your go-to snack?

Also, thanks for all the sweet bday wishes.  You guys made it more special than a typical Tuesday!

What I Ate Tuesday & Wednesday

It’s WIAW time again!  Yay!  These are pics of what I ate yesterday, but I’m eating the exact same thing today (except one or two very minor changes), so you get the idea.

My first breakfast was a hard boiled egg.  So nutritious, yet so yummy!  Second breakfast was fruit, nonfat Greek yogurt, and Love Grown Foods Granola.  Tuesday I had blueberries, and today I’ll be having mango.  This was my first time buying a mango; I didn’t realize how friggin awesome it is!

Parfait = Morning Bowl of Goodness

Lunch is simple yet awesome.  It’s just a turkey sandwich, and though it lacks sufficient turkey, it still hits the spot.  It’s Applegate Farms roast turkey, grain mustard, lettuce, and delicious whole wheat bread.  I packed it with a juicy pear.

A Lovely Pear (Pun Intended)

I normally don’t buy much deli meat since it’s often bad for the environment, over-processed, full of sodium, and blah blah blah.  However, when you want a sandwich, you want a sandwich.

Simple and Satisfying

Snack is another simple yet awesome concoction.  Veggies and organic hummus make a mean snack.  Tuesday I had carrots, but I will have celery today.  I’m sorry celery, but carrots kick you butt.

I measure carrots for fun. Dork.

I made up a new recipe tonight for dinner.  It was really good, if you’re into odd foods.  I was inspired by Thai Kitchen’s spicy red curry and all the junk in my fridge.  Sadly, the curry wasn’t so spicy, but luckily, it was still delish.

Curry in a Semi-Hurry

Two chicken breasts, one can of beans, red quinoa, a large zucchini, carrots, a little leftover tomato, celery, some red bell pepper, and a jalapeno all came together to make this dish.  As you may know, I love chicken packets and leftovers, so I’m happy this will feed Kev and I for two nights.  Sweeeeeet.

I stole a pic of Kev's man-bowl.

I had a jalapeno corn muffin after dinner Tuesday (recipe to come), but I bet I’ll have some ice cream Wednesday.  Yup, I an evening muncher.  I don’t recommend or advise it, but I’m not ashamed!

As always, thanks for reading, and be sure to hop over to Peas and Crayons to check out other great eats and meal ideas!
