What I Ate Wednesday – What Week are We On?

This past week has flown by, and now it’s time for What I Ate Wednesday again!

I’ve been joining up and linking with Jenn at Peas and Crayons for some time now, that I am not even sure how many week’s it has been. Oh well, I enjoy sharing my eats with you, so it honestly does not matter how many Wednesdays it’s been. 🙂

How has your week been?

Mine has been pretty decent, it’s flying by, but that just means the weekend is almost here. Yahoo! Though, the thought of a weekend in the new home gives me a bit of anxiety. We’ve lived here through two weekends and each one has been pretty unpleasant. I’m really hoping that they’re adjusting, we’re adjusting and we can have a nice relaxing time.

Saturday, I think we’re going to get Emmett’s haircut and then Sunday we’re headed out to visit my parents to celebrate a birthday. Whose, you might ask? MINE! 😀 I turn 33 on April 16th, and since my parents will be down visiting my sister on my actual day, we’re celebrating a few days early. I don’t mind at all!

And now….My What I Ate Wednesday!

Guess what I started my day with? Betch’cha can’t guess! (Okay maybe you can, since I start this way, everyday)


And I had my usual breakfast, a delicious gluten-free bagel, egg and American cheese, plus a banana. Mmmm

I forgot to snap a picture of my snack, but it was my delicious berry mixture with unsweetened coconut and GF granola, but it was so darn good.

I live close enough to work that I can go home for lunch. It’s awesome! I can come home and relax for 50 minutes or so, and I don’t have to worry about packing a lunch that day. I won’t be able to do it everyday, but any time I have the opportunity to do it, I will. Today’s lunch was my new favorite meal, Chicken Tacos to Die for (click the link and make them).

Oh and I can’t lie, I did have a couple K-Toos – SO good!

I skipped my afternoon snack, but my wonderful co-worker stopped and picked up Starbucks. Woohoo! There’s always room for Starbucks!


Dinner was fantastic! Seamus grilled up some delicious chicken and zucchini and I ate it so quickly that I didn’t get a picture.


I was part of the clean-plate club tonight. Ha! I love grilling season!

Welp, that does it. Stop on over and and link-up with Jen from Peas and Crayons.

Your turn!

What were some of your yummy eats today?


What I Ate Wednesday – #19

Woohoo – It’s What I Ate Wednesday time!

Hi everyone! I’m feeling super duper peppy tonight! That might be because I had a cup of coffee at 7, after we finished dinner. You might think I’m crazy but I like being able to write at night and the only way to stay conscious is by having a cup. I’m sure by 10:30 I’ll be ready to hit the hay.

Today was another fantastic day! Busy, with lots going on at work but all good stuff and I’m trying to keep a positive attitude, it makes everything so much better. I also had a doctor’s appointment this morning and my blood pressure was perfect, I was very pleased. Granted, I am taking BP meds, but either way at least it is in a healthy zone.

Alright, time for my eats.

I started my day off the way I usually do, with a cup of coffee. Yum!

what-i-ate-wednesday-1120That beauty right there is what gets me pumping right from the get go. I know some people may say I drink too much, but I never feel jittery and I don’t load it with sugar or milk (just a splash), and my doctor isn’t concerned, so I’ll keep on, keepin’ on.

And just because I want to prove how much I love coffee, I had a second cup when I got to work. 😉

what-i-ate-wednesday-1120-2After I finished my second cup, I had my breakfast. As I mentioned in my Weekly Wishes post on Monday, I wanted to cut all gluten out of my breakfasts, so far so good. I’ve been having an organic avocado, cubed up with 2 hard boiled eggs and then topped with Frank’s Red Hot. A good friend of mine eats this frequently for breakfast and it sounded right up my alley, so I gave it a try. I love it! And so far, I’m 3 days in with no gluten at breakfast! Go me!

All morning, I kept reminding myself to get a picture of my breakfast but I ended up forgetting until it was all gone. Here’s a pic of the empty container, for the fun of it.

what-i-ate-wednesday-1120-3Lunch was my typical salad; romaine lettuce, sunflower seeds, blue cheese, ham, turkey and some Ken’s Honey Mustard.

what-i-ate-wednesday-1113Dinner was something simple and thrown together at the last minute, Seamus worked out tonight and Emmett and I got home late. We ended up having chicken fingers and french fries, straight out of the oven. Not the top most healthy meal ever, but at least it’s better than a Big Mac and fries, right?

what-i-ate-wednesday-1120-1And that’s about it, folks. No dessert for me tonight, I just wasn’t in the mood. Be sure to stop on over to Peas and Crayons and link up with What I Ate Wednesday. Thanks for hosting, Jenn!

What I Ate Wednesday – #6

I think I say this every Wednesday, but what a busy day it was! It seemed like I was moving non-stop from the moment I awoke and I have the headache and tense neck/shoulders to prove it.

I actually don’t have a lot of pictures, because I didn’t eat a whole lot. I never thought I’d say this but I was literally too busy to eat at times. Crazy, right!?

Breakfast was the same as last week’s:

2 slices of toast
tomatoes (fresh from the farmer’s market, still)
2 plums
a banana


what-i-ate-wednesday-54 what-i-ate-wednesday-51I absolutely love this breakfast, hence why I had it again. It is very filling and just hits all the taste buds!wednesday-2

I skipped a snack today, I honestly just didn’t feel hungry and since my mind was busy, I didn’t really think about food.

Huge win!

Lunch was just kind of thrown together at the last minute because I didn’t want to spend a lot of time cooking or making anything. I just had some Keebler Townhouse Flatbread Sea Salt and Olive Oil crackers and a couple hard boiled eggs.



Dinner was out, at Salsaritas. We had an appointment to view a new day care for Emmett and stopped on the way home. It was absolutely delicious, but it always is when we go there.


All in all it was a really good day, busy, but good! I am amazed at how much less food I eat when I keep myself busy. I’m not just allowing myself to sit around thinking about what I can binge on in the kitchen. It feels good to being working on gaining control of my eating.

Your turn!

What foods did you eat this Wednesday?
