My Weekly Eats

Believe it or not, I actually like reading WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) Posts. I've never  wrote one though because I never documented what I ate and by Tuesday I had already forgotten.



I was hoping that by documenting what I was eating, I would be more cognizant of it and if I knew that I was going to be sharing it here, that I would make better choices.

Well, let's just say that the week of Valentines day was probably not the best week to track what I was eating, but at least it kept me honest!


                                                                       Sunday
I actually found a Pumpkin Spice Latte that I had in my pantry from the holidays. I don't know what I was saving it for but I finally drank it on Sunday morning and it was fabulous!  I also had a bowl of vanilla bean yogurt.

Sunday lunch was pork, mashed potatoes, and peas.  We usually only make one meal on Sundays.

After I had showered and we settled down to watch TV, cheese and crackers and a glass of Alpine Spice wine was my snack. I had used the spiced wine in the crock pot earlier that day when I was cooking the pork, so it was kind of calling to me to have a glass.

For dinner I had another plate of the pork, potatoes, and peas, and for dinner I had some vanilla bean yogurt with blueberries.



                                                  Monday
At work
 For breakfast I had two Belvita biscuits. For lunch I had another plate of Pork, potatoes, and peas (That will be the last time you see that meal). I was making my valentines out for my school kids so of course I had to have a pack of Sour Patch kids (but you only get like 5 in those little packs).

At home

I eat lunch at 10:50 (and sometimes have a small snack at 2:00) so by the time I get home I am starving. I have to have a snack before I go run. Today's snack was puffed pop corn. I could seriously eat an entire bag of this stuff. I put a little in a small bowl and I may have filled it up twice.  For dinner we had lasagna and salad. Scott brought me home a chocolate peanut butter egg. I know it is way too early for chocolate Easter eggs, but there is church that sells these eggs at a local store in town and they go fast, they are that good. Scott said by next month they will probably be sold out! 


Tuesday
At work
Breakfast was vanilla bean yogurt and granola. Lunch was frozen Lean Gourmet pasta. I know those are the healthiest but they are very convenient to grab in the morning when I didn't make anything the night before. My 2:00 snack was a piece of Dove chocolate I got on a Valentine. 

At home
My after work snack was some cheese and crackers and just a few pieces of the puffed pop corn.  Scott had gone to a Deli for lunch today and bought some different salads and some hamburg barbecue so we'd do a picnic for dinner. I had a sandwich, pasta salad, and some buffalo pretzel chips. 


      Wednesday

At work
Breakfast was some gingerbread oatmeal. Lunch was catered today since it was Valentines day.  There was so much food there but I settled on a slice of lasagna, Caesar salad, pasta salad, fruit salad, and an amazing cupcake!

At home
We went to dinner with friends so there was no picture but I had caprese salad, angel hair pasta, 2 slices of bread, and pistachio gelato.




                                             Thursday
Breakfast was actually another cupcake and I actually ate it before I got to work!

At work
For lunch I had a Lean gourmet mac and cheese and some left over Caesar salad from the day before.  My snack was a piece of Dove chocolate and then later another pack of sour patch kids.

At home
I was in a hurry to go run so I did not have my after work snack.  For dinner I had left over pasta from the night before and yogurt with blueberries for dessert.




                                                 Friday

At work
I did not grab anything for breakfast today and was hoping I could hold out till lunch time.  For lunch I had another Lean Gourmet and a mini bag of Doritos.  I think not having something for breakfast threw me off so by 2:00 I was starving and had another mini bag of chip (bad I know)!

At home
For my after work snack I had a box of sour patch kids. I only meant to have a handful, but you know how that goes. Friday night we didn't eat till late and I was craving comfort food so I had grilled cheese and potato soup, and a pickle.  I didn't even have any snacks when we sat down to watch TV later that night.



                                               Saturday
After a really good run on Saturday morning, I made scrambled eggs with cheese.  We were out shopping for the day (or at least that was the plan). We stopped at Garfield's restaurant and pub since we hadn't been there in ages and it was near where we wanted to shop. I got the quesadilla salad. It was pretty good but we only got to one store before I got violently ill. We ended up coming home and cutting our errands short. Scott dropped me off and then went to the grocery store by himself (which can be a bit frightening but he did okay). He came home with a box of Ferrero chocolates which are my favorites.  I had a few later that night when I was feeling better.  Dinner that night was just cereal for me. That's all I felt I could eat. 


Like I said, I don't know if Valentine's week was the best week to keep track of my food since I had some sweeter treats than I would normally have.  


Obviously I didn't eat as healthy as I should have this week, but there are some days I was surprise to see that I ate very little.  Tell me about your meals from last week! -M
