I can’t believe that one week has passed since last week’s WIAW post! Time is flying. This means…I have made it one week without eating desserts! I’ve had my moments, but I’m pretty proud of myself. You saw a lot of junk food in last week’s post, but you won’t see it again this week. Along with giving up desserts, I’m trying to incorporate more fruit and veggies into my diet, as well. With that being said, here’s what my eats looked like yesterday.
I began my morning with 1 cup of Quaker Oatmeal Squares topped with a few sliced strawberries and a handful of chopped walnuts, all swimming in a pool of coconut milk. On the side, I had a cup of coffee with coconut milk and cinnamon. I love the taste of coffee, but not what it does to my body. I was shaking all day long! I think I’ll stick to green tea for the rest of the week.
For lunch, I packed a salad with spinach and sweet butter lettuce, carrots, broccoli, sunflower seeds and raisins, all topped with an oil and vinegar dressing. On the side, I had some baby Goldfish crackers and a mandarin orange. The second orange never got eaten, but it’ll be waiting for me today!
Lunch did not keep me full for very long (the protein was definitely lacking), so I was hungry again a couple of hours later. Not like this is unusual, I always have to have an afternoon snack to get me through the day! Today’s snack was a Pretzel Honey LUNA Bar, which just happens to be my new favorite “treat.” It practically tastes like a candy bar, but has 9 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 11 grams of sugar (less than my beloved Chobani). If you’re cutting back on sweets (or even if you’re not), I highly recommend you try it (and no one paid me to say that).
For dinner, I went out with co-workers. We went to a new-to-me bar & grill, Fox and Hound. I’m a bit of a homebody during the work week, as it is, but the smoky atmosphere and greasy bar food just didn’t thrill me. I ate half of a grilled chicken sandwich and fries, and part of a soft pretzel appetizer. The food was okay (not picture-worthy), but I don’t think I’d go there again. Work did take care of the bill, so I am grateful for that! And you know how I said you wouldn’t see junk food in today’s post? Well, I didn’t completely lie, since I have no evidence, other than my words ;).
As you can see, I am making progress, people! There is no chocolate in this post, and I am very proud of that!
