It's no secret I do not like WIAW. I have my reasons. Such as...
1. It's TOO MUCH FOOD to look at! Every. Single. Blog.
2. Some of these people only eat like 1,000 calories a day! (Or claim to.)
I get hungry just thinking about that.
3. I can only see so many pictures of snack plates, tiny spoons, mason jars,
Lara Bars, and overnight oats before I'm bored.
If I did a WIAW, it would need several installments because I eat A LOT of food. Courtney @ Running for Cupcakes agreed with me, so she and I decided to do something new called... "What I Stuffed in my Face Wednesday". No frills. Pics of everything. Not just the good, but the bad and the ugly, too. Courtney did her's last week, but I didn't get around to mine until now!
This is what I ate yesterday. I know it's hard to tell exactly how much of something there is, so I have provided my approximate measurement of how much food is pictured.
My pictures are NOT good. I could blame it on my crappy camera, but even if I had a nice camera they'd be crappy anyway. I am not displaying my food on pretty white plates. This is a come as you are event for my food. And with yesterday being a work day, most of my food came in Tupperware!
Here you go my friends! WHAT I STUFFED IN MY FACE WEDNESDAY... the good, the bad, and the ugly!!!
5:50am- Breakfast #1
6 oz iced coffee with 1 tbsp creamer, 3/4 c. shredded wheat cereal w/ skim milk.
I have to eat before I go to the gym or I don't have energy for my workout.
Also, I have found when I skip Breakfast #1, I can never get ahead of my hunger for the day!
45 minutes on the arc trainer (fast pace- I felt the burn!)
7:55am- Breakfast #2
1.5 c. Special K Protein Plus cereal w/ skim milk
1 c. plain fat free Greek yogurt w/ 1 tbsp strawberry jelly mixed in
I ate it during 2nd grade music class.
They understand that I get easily hangered, so they don't mind!
1 c. frozen broccoli and about 7 oz chicken breast. Lots of salt. (Not pictured.)
This is my lunch every freaking day.
1:00pm- Snack #2
A small apple (I wished it was bigger!)
4:00pm- Snack #3
1/3 c. trail mix.
I totally could have eaten dinner when I got home from work
but I had piano lesson to teach so this had to do!
6:00pm- Drinky Drink
5 oz merlot. Then 2 more oz.
Wine and cards with Paul is a nightly ritual after piano lessons!
5 oz chicken breast, chopped celery, tomatoes, yummy pepper, light ranch dressing, some tortilla chip crumbles, and when I ran out... some buffalo chicken pretzel crumbles. And lots of spices!
I call it a "Protein Crunch Bowl!"
Honestly, I would normally have sweet potatoes or quinoa rather than
the chips and pretzels but I didn't have any made and I was too hungry!
Strawberry ice crean and chocolate pudding pie
I didn't eat ALL that, but I did eat out of the cartons so I can't accurately show you
how much I ate. Prob 1 c. ice cream and 2/3 of what's left of the pie.
This is what happened to the rest of the pie when I was putting it away.
Sorry Paul!!!!!! :o(
9:9:30 pm- Pre-bed snack
More trail mix. A good handful. I was too tired to take pic!
WISIMFW was approx...
29% Fat, 42% Carb, 29% Protein
That's it, folks! I'm boring and eat a lot of the same things every day.
My dinners and desserts change, but everything before that is pretty much the same daily
What did you stuff in your face yesterday?
Do you ever eat the same thing for a meal or snack over and over again?
Do you track your calories and macros?
