Happy WIAW!!!

My work schedule changed yet AGAIN, but now I have a normal day-to-day rather than noon-7p. I thought it would be easier having the morning to get things done and just come home and relax after work. That never really worked and I was always running behind. So now I can function normally and get back to a balanced life.

Yesterday for breakfast was my normal yogurt bowl with some flax granola and strawberry slices.

Yogurt and cereal

This was filling, but I still wanted a little something for a snack after. I had a mini Luna in my purse so I had that on my way to work.

S'mores as a snack? Yes!

Once I got to work and had a few hours on my feet it was time for lunch. I had packed a PB on a wheat thin with honey and raisins and hit the spot, but only briefly.

I had some cottage cheese and jam to go with it and it wasn’t all that great. Luckily, just in the nick of time we had a Jimmy Johns handing out mini sandwiches so I opted for the veggie.

"veggie" sandwich mini

I’ve come to the conclusion that if a chain restaurant says “veggie” that means lettuce and tomato with maybe a cucumber. I was disappointed in this little guy, but it was free so I’m not going to complain too much. Now I know what their “veggie” means.

After work I hit up BodyPump and was really surprised at how packed it was. Definitely more crowded than the gym Monday morning. It was still a good class and worked up my appetite.

I came home to a quick protein shake while I heated up dinner.

Ella was curious about my snack and I gave her a treat because she’s so cute;)

Once my appetizer was done it was time for dinner.

Hodge podge of things

I couldnt’ decide on which leftovers to have to I just had them all. Hoppin’ John, collards, and BBQ with a piece of bread that didn’t make the pic.

It was a pretty good food day, though I could use some more veggies. Oh well, there’s always today to do better!

Did you eat lots of veggies yesterday?

Oh man my veggie consumption was seriously lacking yesterday. I had my bookclub last night and believe me veggies are not served there! ha!

You are so right about veggie sandwiches! I need to be pickier about where I order them from. Have you ever had one at MetroFresh? They’re more creative there.

My veggie cravings are insatiable lately. I think I replaced veggies with sugar in December and my body is revolting now.

I’ve not had them yet but have heard great things!

I agree with you on the “veggie” label – that can mean boring very easily!

I have been a kale queen recently – I crave kale all the time. In fact, I need to go pick up a few more bunches on my way home tonight, because I HAVE to eat another kale salad with dinner tonight. :)
