WIAW #4: Lack of Veggies, Lots of Fro-Yo

Thank you all so much for your encouraging comments on yesterday’s post. I registered for the race pretty late on Monday night, and was worried that I’d wake up on Tuesday morning in an “I can’t believe I just did that” panic — but no such thing happened. I am actually very excited. I chose to sign up for the November half marathon, because I won’t need to start training until after my honeymoon. This means I can enjoy the summer months and get in all of my favorite workouts without having to worry about committing to anything too time consuming. When I get back from the honeymoon, I’m sure I’ll feel a little overwhelmed with reality, and sad that the wedding planning is over, so it will be the perfect time for me to focus on something else — like running 13.1 miles. And anytime I get discouraged, I will come back to yesterday’s post and read all of your comments. You guys are amazing cheerleaders :).

Let’s move on to yesterday’s eats, shall we? It’s been a while since I’ve done a WIAW post, but I worked from home yesterday and had the opportunity to document my food. If you’d like to participate, check out Peas and Crayons for more info.


Breakfast (8:00 am)

I normally eat breakfast around 6:30, but since I had time to sleep in this morning, I decided to make a more leisurely breakfast a little later. I made a batch of homemade pancakes (1/2 cup flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 cup soy milk, small handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips), topped with a little whipped cream, and strawberries on the side.

Snack (10:00 am)

This was more of a necessary pick me up than a snack, but around 10am, I needed something to sip on while I worked. I made a cup of decaf iced coffee with the Keurig, and mixed in my favorite coconut milk.

Lunch (12:00 pm)

For lunch, I had chicken salad on a toasted whole wheat English muffin, an apple, and a handful of Pretzel Crisps. Simple, but delicious.

Snack (3:30pm)

I worked from home today, because I had a brief orientation at my soon-to-be job in the afternoon. When I left the orientation, it was warm outside, my throat was scratchy, and frozen yogurt sounded like a good afternoon treat. I had chocolate cheesecake and white chocolate fro yo (I promise it’s in there), with a ton of toppings. I might have overdone it a little with the toppings — but can you really ever overdo it with fro-yo? Nah.

Dinner (8:30pm)

Normally, I eat dinner pretty late. By the time I get home from work, to the gym, and drive back home, it’s almost 8:00. Last night, I was supposed to take a Body Toning class at the gym, but I fell asleep after work and completely missed my class. Fail. It’s actually probably a good thing — my allergies have been bugging me, and I haven’t been getting enough sleep lately. So instead of going to the gym, Jordan came over and we went for a 2 mile walk, before I was finally hungry (that fro-yo filled me up!).

I had a BST (that’s a BLT with spinach, in case the picture’s not obvious enough :)) on rye bread, with chips and strawberries on the side. Can you guess what my favorite fruit is ;)?

As you can see, I still need to work on sneaking more veggies into my diet. The thing is, I filled up on tons of them during lunch on Monday, and my stomach was burning for the rest of the day. Yet, acidic fruits don’t usually bother me — weird. Maybe I should invest in some V8 juice?

Do you like your veggies?

When are your usual meal times?

  1. Aaahhhh!!!! I’m so excited for you!!! That’s the perfect post wedding and honeymoon distraction…. It’ll give you something to look forward to! Congrats girl!

  2. I like veggies, but they’re not something I love. Every day I have to choose to eat them because it’s really rare that I’ll ever actually crave them. If only I loved veggies as much as I loved fruit…

  3. I’m one of those weird people who love vegetables. I eat red peppers like apples haha. But there are some I could do without. I do not like raw carrots. They are too crunchy and flavorless. I also don’t love salads. I would much rather have a cup or two of steamed veggies any day.

  4. My meal times are pretty set (unless its the weekend) I have coffee before coming to work and then eat my breakfast at around 8. My school schedule dictates when I eat – because I can’t eat a meal with the kids sittin gin the room. Lunch is at 11:50 – Dinner usually between 6 and 7. Snacks in between of course

  5. Those pancakes look delicious…I need to whip some up for breakfast tomorrow! I have pretty normal meal times…6am, noon and 7pm with a morning and afternoon snack:)

  6. I love BLTs!! your eats look great! I usually eat breakfast at 7, lunch at 11:30/12, Snack at 1:30, and then dinner at 6ish (there’s no way I can wait much longer…I get super hungry by then!)

  7. My WIAW was severely lacking vegetables too. Although I think you have me beat with the spinach on your sandwich :-)

    On work days, my meals are always at specific times: breakfast at 7, lunch at 12:18 on the dot, and dinner around 5. I can’t wait any longer than that for dinner :-)
