WIAW...just in case you care

Yesterday I ate stuff just like I do every day. I hardly ever post photos of things I eat because, seriously, who really gives a know. But sometimes you gotta follow the trend just to make sure you aren't missing out. After this "experiment", which I (along with Kari, Kara, and Alyssa) did once last year, I'm still pretty convinced I'm not missing out and people still don't care what I ate. But sometimes it's nice to know that not everyone eats only vegetables, chia seeds, and green smoothies. This day was a little different than normal because I ended up scoring free food at work, which was a godsend because I really need to go grocery shopping.


Breakfast: leftover wheat pancakes smothered in peanut butter, and coffee. I actually made the pancakes Monday night and had three for dinner. Waking up knowing I had the rest leftover for breakfast made it a lot easier to get out of bed.
Butter and syrup? That's so last year.

Second breakfast/snack: a KIND bar. These are my new favorite snack. I recently got a Groupon for an amazing deal on a big box of them, so I'm set for work snacks for a while.

Third breakfast? First lunch?: Bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit. This was the first of the free food for the day. Usually when there's leftover food from a class it's dry bagels and some fruit, so this was a huge upgrade!

Second lunch: Free leftover salad...with cheese AND salad dressing. Oh, the horror!

An hour workout: 40 minutes on the elliptical followed by weights and stretching
(No, this isn't food)

Dinner: Three scrambled eggs with spinach and onion, salsa, and toast with butter. I was annoyed my salsa kept making my toast soggy and I wished I had a divided plate...or just larger plates in general (perhaps proof that I was hangry). This was a "throw together whatever you can" meal since, like I said, I really need to grocery shop.

"Dessert": A glass of pinot grigio and two Dove peppermint bark candy things.

One thing I didn't add in is that I drank lots of water throughout the day, as I always do. I think I filled my water bottle up three times which would mean I drank 60 ounces of water yesterday. Yay me.

Ok, so I did learn something from this. I've got to get larger plates and bowls. Also? I need more bacon in my life.

What do you think you'd learn from documenting what you ate for a day?


  1. Wine and two pieces of chocolate???? You wild woman :)

  2. You put ice in your wine? Oh the horrrorrr.

  3. You definitely need more bacon in your life. An egg and one piece of toast for dinner would leave me starving! What's it like being able to stop at two tiny pieces of chocolate?

  4. I feel like I mocked you last time for the ice in wine thing. At least I have that dejavu feeling.

  5. Your buttery toast looks fantastic. I wouldn't want soggy toast either. I love those Almond & Apricot bars!
