Sunday Eats

I started my stretch at work yesterday so I had to get up early, eat breakfast and prepare my eats for the day. I started off with oats:

  • 1/3 C oats
  • almost 1/2 C 1% milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/3 C wild blueberries
  • 1/2 C vanilla yogurt mixed in after cooking
  • 1 tsp almond and hazelnut butter


Mmmmmmm!! 🙂

Here are my eats for the day. I ended up eating my chicken wrap for lunch and the baby carrots as my snack but didn’t end up eating the fruit.

Chicken wrap and snacks

Things got super busy with work and I didn’t end up getting home until 9pm. I wasn’t in the mood to prepare anything so I stopped by Subway on the way home. Unfortunately, I was so hungry I totally forgot to take a photo!!! I had a Subway Club sandwich with veggies, mustard and hot sauce.

These are my confessions….

I only planned on eating half of my footlong sandwich and giving the other half to J, but I was silly and rationalized “you’ve had a hard day, you deserve it” and even though I WASN’T hungry, I ate it anyways.

I felt really silly (and really FULL) afterwards. But it reminded me that I still have a long ways to go. I spend so much of my time doing things for others–literally saving people’s lives, like the child we saved yesterday–that I forget to reward myself on an ongoing basis. Food can certainly be an indulgence, but not a reward. And I clearly need to come up with better rewards and better ways to give to myself.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go any better today……more to come

Yummy Eats

So I’m going to try to do this all in one post with as few words as possible as I’m due to leave for work in 15 minutes:

Monday’s Eats

I started off the day with some vanilla yogurt with grated lemon:


This was wonderful and refreshing!

Lunch was a chicken pita with tomatoes, pickles, onions, whole grain mustard and hot sauce:

Tuesday’s Eats:

I woke up late today and was VERY hungry. I wanted something really filling:

Oats with banana and blueberry

This was oatmeal topped with cooked blueberries and banana. I added 1 tsp almond hazelnut butter to it.

Lunch was the wonderful recipe I had been referring to earlier on in the week! Giada’s Basil & Orange arugula salad:

Dinner I’ll have later tonight at work and it will most likely be some chicken breast with steamed rapini.

Have a great night!

Tuesday’s Eats

Hi all!

I was at work today but photographed these before heading out today:

Blueberry oats

This was delicious! I had 1/3 C oats with 1/2 C 1% milk. I mixed in 1/3 C wild blueberries and 1 tsp almond hazelnut butter.

Lunch was leftovers:

Chicken rapini

Underneath the rapini (broccoli rabe) I also had grilled asparagus. Snacks included a couple of clementines and baby carrots.


Along with tomato soup for dinner!

Breakfast, Lunch…

Afternoon everyone!

So I started off my day with a quick cardio workout at the gym–33 minutes on the elliptical. HR 134-155 bpm. After cardio I did some stretching and booted it out of there!

Apple yogurt spoon

Hello lovah! I made apple cinnamon vanilla yogurt by baking a Pink Lady apple that I cut up and sprinkled cinnamon on. Once that was hot and toasty, I spooned that on top of my Stonyfield vanilla yogurt. YUM!

For lunch I wanted something filling so I had a veggie burger pita:
