Hey guys! Long time no
see blog? I’m sorry I have been so absent from the blog lately, a lot has been happening! Luckily, Lynda Lou was blogging away about her fun adventures in Florida, so hopefully my absence wasn’t too noticeable. My Wednesday was a bit different than usual because I am still getting used to my new work schedule. I got a job! Well, I already had a job at the coffee shop, of course, but now I am working a second job 3 or 4 days a week. The exciting part is that this new job is a step towards getting into a career in holistic health and wellness that will utilize my degree in nutrition. For now, I am doing front desk work, but there are so many opportunities to learn and grow, so I’m pretty stoked. Hey, you’ve gotta start somewhere, right! Anyway, my point in telling you all of that is to explain why my WIAW this week is pretty lame. It’s because this is my first full week of working my new job and I have been getting home around 7:30 and I guess I was not prepared for how tired sitting at a desk all day could make a person! Okay, I’m done rambling….here’s my food!
I started my morning around 7:30 with a large cup of Vanilla Bean coffee from World Market with some organic half and half. About an hour later I made my usual oatmeal because I haven’t gone grocery shopping and there wasn’t really any other options…not that I would have chosen another option anyway. I made it slightly different this time by using a little brown sugar, but still used cinnamon, banana slices, and walnuts. I also drank water out of my little kids Hello Kitty cup that I love so much. I swear Lynda and I are adults, we just like kid things, okay!
Lunch was boring, again because I have no food in the house right now. I do, however, always seem to have cans of tuna and oatmeal, and luckily I still had some apples left from my last grocery store trip. I made myself tuna salad with Sundried Tomato Wheat Thins. I also sliced up a granny smith apple and drank more water. To see how I make my tuna salad check out my WIAW post from a while back.
After eating this I headed to work. On Wednesdays I work at my new job from 1-7pm. This was my first Wednesday working there, so I didn’t think about the fact that I would have to go around 6 hours without food. Next week I will definitely bring a snack because I was ravenous by the time I got off!
Because I was starving to death and there is a Chipotle very close to where I work, that seemed like the best idea for dinner. I ordered a burrito bowl with chicken, brown rice, black beans, the hot sauce (whatever that is), pico de gallo, and lettuce. I drove home and somehow managed to snap a picture of this deliciousness before I completely devoured it. I then laid on the couch in a food coma and watched a couple episodes of Bates Motel with Preston.
Even though I really wasn’t hungry after all the food I ate for dinner, I ate some ice cream anyway. This is why you shouldn’t starve yourself throughout the day! Because you will just eat and eat like a little piggy, like me. 🙂 This is not just any ice cream though, guys! This is girl scout cookie ice cream in the Samoas flavor, which happens to be my favorite girl scout cookie! YUM!! I promise I didn’t eat the whole container, but I just didn’t get a picture of the ice cream in my bowl. It will be a bittersweet moment when this ice cream is finally gone.
Well, that is everything I ate this Wednesday. I don’t think my food choices were too bad considering my lack of groceries in the house and my late work day. I really try to limit eating out during the week, so I failed in that regard, but at least it wasn’t Bojangles and it also contained at least two vegetables! Great success! hehe I’ll be sure to plan my meals out for next week and I’ll be heading to the grocery store soon.
Have a good rest of the week!
