This Wednesday was not a typical one. I graduated from college! Well, technically I finished my degree work in July, but yesterday was the actual graduation. Because this was a day of celebrating it was not really a day of healthy eating. I had to be at graduation at 8:30am and of course I was running late, so I had to choose between making coffee or my typical oatmeal breakfast. I didn’t have time for both. Take a wild guess what I chose? Coffee, duh! I did manage to toast a piece of bread which I had planned to put grape jelly on. But, instead I ate it plain because I couldn’t get the stupid jar unscrewed and didn’t have time to fight with it. I didn’t even think of taking a picture of that, but I think you guys know what toast looks like. 🙂 So, graduation happened and about 4 hours later at the ole Cracker Barrel some tasty foods were consumed.
Breakfast for Lunch
I decided to get french toast, eggs, and sausage! Considering I very rarely have any breakfast foods other than oatmeal I thought it sounded good. Also, I guess my one piece of toast for breakfast wasn’t enough toast for one day. Yes, I had so much food it wouldn’t all fit on the same plate. In my defense, I wasn’t able to finish it all!
After lunch I headed to the mall with my mom and brother to do a little Christmas shopping. Our first stop was Starbucks. I had a small Cinnamon Dolce Latte, no whip. Let’s not talk about the unnecessary amount of calories and fat this added to my day. It’s all good!
I’m not used to eating such a big lunch, so I stayed pretty full for a long time. I decided to just make a salad for dinner. This is just organic spring mix salad with some Ranch Sunflower Kernels from Nature Box that Lynda gave me sprinkled on top. It also has some shredded cheese and the yogurt based Bolthouse Farms Ranch dressing that I love so much. I didn’t have any other veges on hand to put in it, so that was it.
I also drank water throughout the day and with each meal. I’m pretty sure I ate a graham cracker at some point after dinner too. :-p Lastly, on an unrelated note, I will leave you with my favorite picture from Wednesday. My lovely Grandmother and myself.
Thank you all for reading!
