What I Ate Wednesday #80

Good morning! I hope your Wednesday has started on a great note. I only have a few minutes to chat before I need to get out the door, so I’m going to dive right into yesterday’s eats for What I Ate Wednesday.

Have no idea what I’m talking about? Check it out!


What I Ate Wednesday Tuesday


Breakfast started as soon as I got up, which is usually the case. Without much motivation to make anything creative, I turned to one of my favorite fiber cereals.

Fiber One Honey Clusters Cereal topped in blueberries. And coffee. Duh.

I left the house around 9:30 a.m. and spent the next hour and a half at the gym training. I hurried back home as soon as I could get out to be able to finish that morning’s blog post that didn’t happen.

That’s when I realized it’s way to cold out this week. Anything below zero is just not okay.

I walked in the door around 11:30 and settled on a snack while I got back to the computer.

I had several issues formatting my post, spent some time trying to trick paragraphs and bullet points through HTML copy and pasting, and it ended up taking a total of four hours to write. Sigh. Some of the joys that come with blogging aren’t all awesome.

I finally wrapped things up around 2:30 p.m., and I was hangry. Since we have been gone, there wasn’t much to work with in our pantry or fridge. Another soup over noodles meal hit the spot!

I spent the next couple of hours catching up on emails and communicating with clients. I even had a quick virtual chat with a prospective client all the way in Holland! That seems so crazy to me. But wonderful.

I decided to go back to the gym to be able to concentrate on putting workouts and plans together, and brought an apple as a snack on the drive over.

Seriously though.

Houston… I want to go baaack.

I left the gym confident in my work for the day around 8 p.m. I was pretty hungry again, so I picked up a sub and salad from Quizno’s for Scott and I to enjoy when I got home. That was the plan anyways. I wanted to sneak in a quick workout, so I tried out an at-home dumbbell circuit I put together for a client.

I loved it, and will be sharing a similar version of it on the blog soon!

Before I even made it back upstairs, I heard Scott come home and instantly take a serious tone with Roadie.

Despite my efforts to push our bag of dinner out of his reach, he got up onto our kitchen counter, drug the bag to the floor, and went to town. I finished my workout, walked upstairs, and all that was left of an 11″ sub and chicken cobb salad was lettuce and a few tomatoes. That dog. Wow.

Still ridiculously hungry without much to work with, Scott and I hopped in the car and made a drive over to YAYA’s. There is barely anything open past 9 p.m. around our neck of the woods, so a shredded chicken salad from YAYA’s it was.

I quickly realized that my salad literally consisted of chicken and lettuce, so I found a couple more (random) ingredients to add to it and called it a day.

Even though the salad was the size of my head, I still wanted something else. I opted for a tall glass of Dark Chocolate Almond Milk and rounded it all out with a slice of whole wheat toast topped in chocolate peanut butter for dessert.

I truly apologize if this post is filled with typos. I need to get out the door and onto the doctor’s office for an annual check-up and really don’t have time to proof-read. Yikes… *fingers crossed* we’re good. I will see you again later this afternoon!


If you’re ever curious to see what another complete day of meals and snacks looks like for me, this is just one of the many examples you can find exploring the “WIAW” tag on the right hand sidebar. If you liked this WIAW post, head on over to Peas & Crayons to check out plenty others, or even link your own!
