Welcome to another always fun What I Ate Wednesday!
Breakfast – 8:00am
Surprise! It’s pumpkin oats!
Mid-Morning Snack – 11:15am
One of these delicious muffins…and maybe half of another.
Lunch – 1:30pm
With the absolutely beautiful weather, I wound up with a craving for one of my favorite warm weather treats…a long-awaited smoothie bowl!
I mixed up a Strawberry Almond Smoothie, with a very obvious helping of spinach to make for a healthy, green smoothie bowl. I topped things off with some Kashi Go Lean + granola for a little added crunch. It could have been a bit thicker…apparently I need to get back into the swing of smoothie making.
Mid-Afternoon Snack – 3:30pm
Before rushing out the door leaving for work, I managed to quickly grab some baby carrots, grape tomatoes, and hummus to snack on.
I also found an orange in my bag which was on its last limbs, so that ended up getting eaten at work as well. Kinda boring, I know.
Umm, Dinner? – 7:00pm – 9:00pm
I actually had to scoot out of work a bit early last night because I had a fun girls night planned! My friend Cortney invited a few of us over for a Mary Kay party, which was a great time. It’s always fun to pamper yourself, but it’s even more fun to spend a night out with the girls.
I had a yummy class of Cupcake pinot grigio at the beginning of the evening, but just kept it to one…had to drive home!
Cortney (<—can I tell you how hard it is to type her name without the ‘u’???) also put out a nice spread of snacks and appetizers for us to munch on throughout the party, including some pretty delicious Tastefully Simple mixes. As a side note, I seriously need to have one of those parties.
Seeing as though this was my dinner, I did a pretty good job of helping myself to a generous portion of, well, most of it…except for that mix on the celery. Wayyy too spicy for this gal.
I only made myself this one plate of food, but probably had at least three times that amount, including plenty of pieces of whole wheat beer bread(!!) and key lime pie cream cheese spread. Like I said…I need to have one of those parties. You’ll all come, right?
Last night’s pseudo dinner definitely filled me up, but wasn’t nearly as satisfying as sitting down to a real meal. I really had to reel it in when I got home, to prevent myself from making it into a night-long binge. Thankfully, I kept things under wraps, but that’s actually a topic I plan on talking about with you all soon. I’ve had a few of you asking about the nutrition plan – if I’m still on it, how it’s going, how my sweets cravings are – so I’ll be addressing all of those, hopefully, within the next day or two. Some interesting stuff to be shared, indeed!
Questions for the Morning:
What meal are you most likely to wind up “snacking” through, rather than sitting down to an actual meal?
Do you feel satisfied afterward, or does it leave you wanting more?
