What I Ate Wednesday – #11

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

Yes, this is a day late and for that I apologize. 🙁 I have just been very tired this week, yesterday after Emmett was in bed, I took my make-up off and fell asleep on the couch until quarter after ten when Seamus came and woke me up. My schedule has been the same for months, so I have no idea why I’m so tired this week but it has definitely hit me. I’m still feeling pretty tired today, hopefully I can use the weekend to catch up on some deep, delicious sleep.

I tried something new today, normally I don’t start drinking my water until 9 or so, instead I started drinking it on my ride into work. Prior to yesterday, I would have two cups of coffee and that’s it. I was often feeling hungry as soon as I got to work, even though I had just finished eating a homemade (filling) breakfast sandwich. I now realize that what I was thinking were hunger pains were actually my stomach and head working together to tell me I was thirsty. (You can read an article I wrote about how you can tell the difference between hunger and thirst.)


Breakfast was my typical sandwich of whole wheat English muffin, 1 scrambled egg and a slice of American Cheese. And, as usual, I forgot to take a picture of it. Seamus makes it and I literally grab it and scarf it down on my ride in, so there’s really no opportune moment for a pic.

But that’s okay because I did manage to get pics of everything else. First up was my delicious cup of coffee! I’ve been crushing hard on Trader Joe’s Fair Trade coffee. This stuff is outstanding! I don’t need a single sweetener and only add a splash of half & half. This particular coffee is so dark and rich and it’s so wonderful to just sit back and enjoy a cup.


I’ve also been crushing pretty hard on Clif Bars, which were my morning snack. My favorites so far are the chocolate chip and the crunchy peanut butter. They’re not the cheapest of bars but the ingredient list is pretty decent and they’re super filling. They’ll stick around for awhile until I get bored with them, like every other bar I’ve tried.


Lunch was a yummy salad! A mix of Boston and Romaine lettuce, sunflower seeds, blue cheese crumbles, ham and chicken and then topped with Ken’s Light Honey Mustard dressing. I was also freezing, so I grabbed a cup of soup from the cafeteria, Italian Wedding Soup, it was REALLY good.




I skipped an afternoon snack and had a decaf coffee instead. It wasn’t really that good, though. I really like strong coffee but this almost had a burnt taste to it, which is no good.

Would you want to be known as hot? {August NaBloPoMo}

Remember how I said I was joining into the festivities of BlogHer’s August NaBloPoMo?

BlogHer NaBloPoMo - August

August NaBloPoMo


Yeah, well I didn’t! I signed-up, was super excited about it (still am) and then the month of August proceeded to start and NaBloPoMo left my brain. I’m going to try and go back to catch-up on what I missed, but today I’m starting with August sixth’s prompt, (see them all here).

Would I like to be considered hot?


Yeah, I think I would. I’m sure it goes back to the good ole self-esteem, that I seem to lack so much of, all the time. It’s a pretty superficial judgement but we are taught and conditioned, by TV, movies or magazines on what is considered “hot.” When I look at the women (or men) who fall into this category, I always assume they have the life, that things just come easier for them, however I do realize that this is likely untrue. That many of the folks who are considered hot still probably had to work to get where they are.

I also associate hot with being thin or fit, and I so desperately want to be either. I know it doesn’t just happen and it takes hard work but I constantly like to imagine myself with a fitness instructor body and just magically waking up that way, it consumes almost every free second I have.

So if I were “hot” in my eyes, I’d be sexy, thin and fit, I’d have abs like those above. Well technically, I could have abs like those if I cut out the junk and worked hard. Now, I just need to work on motivation and find that HOT!

Question of the Day:

Would you like to be known as hot?
