Hey, you guys! So glad you loved reading about my fantasy Pinterest life yesterday. I should really combine wine and blogging more often!
Today I’m once again linking up with Jenn for What I Ate Wednesday to bring you the inside scoop into….well… what I ate.
Yesterday was a combination of things, really. Like most days, I started off great. Had my workout in, was feeling all healthy and ready to go. But, as you’ll soon see, things took a sinister turn as the day went on.
For breakfast I had an egg scramble with sweet and regular potatoes, kale, mushrooms, peppers, onions, and some cheese. Super healthy, right? Yay for me!
I packed my nice little lunch of turkey bolognese and made a little snack pack to go with it. In the snack box I put some veggie and flax tortilla chips, some Greek yogurt & kale dip, and a hard-boiled egg. Still doing great!
I got to work and made myself some coffee. This is where things start to get fuzzy. Cup #1:
Not pictured: cup #2. and #3.
My admin assistant brought me a muffin she’d made and wished me a great day. How sweet of her! I wasn’t hungry, but I ate it anyway.
Soon it was lunch time. Time to break out that turkey bolognese, right? Not right. I needed pizza, ASAP. I bought myself a slice of the “chicken caprese” pizza from the student union. It did have a tomato slice on there, at least.
Still, not the end of the world. Once I got home, I helped myself to some London broil that Riley had cooking in the slow cooker. It was ok, but not the best cut of meat so I didn’t eat very much of it.
You’ll notice there are no sides to my dinner. Since Riley was out with friends, he wasn’t there to cook them for me. At this point in the day, I’d become a total grump and decided to throw myself a pity party. You see, I had mentally added up how many hours I’ll have worked by the end of this week (almost 60….nearly 70 if you throw in my 45 minute commute each way).
Here’s where “the ugly” comes in….
Side dish number one:
Oh, you’re not surprised by that? Ok, neither am I. I was surprised by this, however.
And this. Not pictured- the third Reese’s egg that I ate and lost the wrapper. But there were 3, I promise you.
In case you’re wondering, I don’t eat Cheez Doodles. Just the fact that cheese is spelled wrong indicates there’s no real food in that food. I ate them last night, however. Two big, cheesey-fingered handfuls of ’em. And the candy made it even better.
No surprise that Cheez Doodles and Reese’s eggs do not make nutritious side dishes. As a result, I woke up starving in the middle of the night. Several times, in fact, before realizing I’d slept through my alarm and missed the gym. Ahhh, another day in paradise!
So there you have it. In the spirit of full disclosure, I’ve let it all hang out. Off to work for now, so have a great day!
What’s the best/worst thing you at yesterday?
