Unfamiliar with What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW)? WIAW is a blogger link-up created by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons. The idea is that once a week, you keep track of all of your eats for a day and share. The very first blogs I started reading were daily food journal type blogs, so even though that’s not a popular format anymore, it was cool to be able to write my own post in that style.
I will say that nothing makes you overly scrutinize your food like knowing that you will be posting it for the world to see. After I uploaded all of the photos, I’m like “UGH I ate two tortillas in one day, not enough variety! All of my food is too mushy and ugly! What if they think I eat too much dairy?!?!?!” But I think that’s the beauty of WIAW. No one eats beautiful food all the time! And it’s cool to get real, practical ideas from all different kinds of lifestyles and diets.
And also in my defense, we bought a pack of tortillas from Costco this past weekend and I am DETERMINED not to waste food so I will be rolling anything and everything into a tortilla until those bastards are gone.
I woke up with some extra time this morning (a rare occurence) so I took some time to make my favorite breakfast, eggs! I scrambled these on low in butter and then added a slice of cheese on top.
Work today was pretty uneventful. Spreadsheets, meetings, etc.
I actually had a meeting today at 3:00 which is the exact time that I like to partake in my afternoon snack, how dare they. So I had a later than normal snack.
I’ve been making my own hummus lately and really like being able to customize it.
After work, we headed to the gym where I ran on the treadmill. I did a tempo run (10 min comfortable pace, 15 mins at a medium difficulty pace, 10 min cooldown at comfortable pace) where I cranked that bad boy all the way up to 6.2 mph for the tempo part. Wow, it was tough. I was sweating like a mofo and my face was BEET red. Trying to get faster is hard work.
I really enjoyed participating in WIAW this week! Hopefully my pictures weren’t too insanely boring or nausea-inducing.
And in conclusion, I think I have a tea problem and will be seeking help soon. Thank you for your support during this difficult time.
How much tea do you drink on a daily basis? Make me feel better about my consumption please?
