What I Ate Wednesday

This week has been absolutely CRAZY at work.  So crazy, that I actually missed a meal yesterday!  It was just awful.  I went immediately in to b*tch mode, of course, and scrambled to find something to eat in the empty cafeteria.   In addition to running around at work, I’m on Week 5 of James Wilson’s Body Earned Program and it is killer!  My whole body feels tired all of the time.  The upside of this week is that I got to see Wilco last night. I hadn’t really listened to them before, but it was still a great show and I’m going to be downloading their stuff soon!

For breakfast I had the usual: Egg whites with genesis toast on the way to the bus stop in my red solo cup!  Today’s variation was summer squash and cherry tomatoes:)

Meal 2 was a little tweaked because I just got a new protein powder and needed to increase my carbs! My MRM Dutch Chocolate came yesterday so I had cottage cheese with the MRM, a quarter of an overripe banana (ew), and another piece of toast!

Meal 3 has been my favorite every day this week:)  The cafeteria has a little pre-made tray of a mixed green salad with no dressing (I squeeze a lemon on top), smoked salmon with capers, potato salad, and a brownie.  I toss the potato salad and brownie to add a hard boiled egg+one hardboiled egg white and brown rice sesame chips!  Smoked salmon is my new obsession so I’ve been pretty stoked!

Meal 4 is boring old grilled chicken with a little feta thrown on top, the rest of the gross banana, and a tbs. of pb2!

For Meal 5 I made Little B’s coconut chicken with a side of squash, bell pepper, and onion sauteed in a little olive oil 🙂  It was so great!  I’d definitely try the recipe if I were you, you can find it in her notes here.

Meal 6 is probably going to be a cottage cheese/protein powder shake because it is SO HOT:)

Let me know what you ate on this lovely Wednesday!


What I Ate Wednesday!

So I can see how you might think that all I eat is weird protein ice cream and oatmeal all day, but I swear that I eat real food!  I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and participate in What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) with Peas and Crayons and a bunch of other awesome bloggers 🙂  Basically, I just post a full day of my meals so that you can see where I’m at, and also maybe find some ideas for yourself!  Peas and Crayons makes it very clear that this isn’t about comparing meals or judging others, but to celebrate that we all eat and it’s awesome. So, rejoice!

Ezekial cinnamon raisin toast, sundried tomato and caper egg white + one whole egg omelette on a bed of spinach

Meal 2:
