WIAW–Excessive Snackage…

May 16, 2012

Good morning everyone! It’s Wednesday – halfway through the week! Wednesday also means it’s time for another installment of What I Ate Wednesday!

Peas and Crayons

If you are new to WIAW, head over to Jenn’s blog, Peas and Crayons, where you can read about WIAW, why she started it, and all the other participating blogs!

Today’s WIAW comes from my eats yesterday, Tuesday! I started off the day with a lighter breakfast since I was going to head to Jazzerise just an hour later. I had 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt with stevia and vanilla mixed in, a TON of blueberries, and some walnuts!

After Jazzercise, I went to Trader Joe’s to pick up some food, roasted a bunch of veggies for the week and then made myself some lunch! I basically just sliced up a bunch of vegetables and steamed them in the microwave. In the mix is eggplant, zucchini, kale, mushrooms, chickpeas and then some marinara sauce on top!

I enjoyed my lunch while watching the Bachelorette season premiere!

Afterwards, I couldn’t resist making up a bowl of berries that I got from Trader Joes! I put some of the Sol Sunflower Beverage on top and a packet of stevia. And a few chocolate chips! Perfect dessert.

Pretty sure I got my days worth of fiber in this lunch…

In the afternoon I had the thought to run a couple more miles on the treadmill… Then I accidentally took a 1 hour nap. Then I went and sat outside on the patio for waaaaay too long. And then I discovered the show Pregnant in Heels, which I watched along with some Extreme Couponing. Seriously, those people do not NEED all of that stuff!!! It’s insane!

Anyway, long story short I never made that run… I just ended up being a lazy bum. And that was alright with me. Especially since I’d already worked my poor legs enough at Jazzercise that morning.

I did, however, have waaaay too many snacks… This happens.

I had some “trail mix” with corn puffs, gluten free Rice Krispies, raisins, mini chocolate chips and some salted nuts. Also threw in a few rice chips. I ended up having this bag x2, and an apple with the second one.

A little later I was craving those berries again! I had a little bowl of them:

But that clearly wasn’t satisfying enough so I had a little Greek yogurt with some more berries and Rice Krispies:

Definitely ruined my appetite for dinner. Excessive. But there was no skipping out on that since it was Girls Night Out! Every time I go home I get together with my mom, some of her friends, and their daughters who are all around my age. We call it GNO (girls night out) and always have a blast. Last night we went to the Blue Bird Bistro, which I’ve reviewed a couple other times on the blog. I’m a big fan.

I didn’t have my phone with me, so no picture, but I had the green curry with chicken, which is what I had last time I reviewed the bluebird! It was good, but nothing spectacular. The food was actually a little cold by the time it got to me, so that wasn’t fantastic.

The company, however, was wonderful! We had a good time chatting and were lucky enough to be put upstairs in a separate room to ourselves. Either that or they could tell we were a rambunctious group and they wanted to separate us from their other diners… Haha oh well. By the time I got home it was almost my bedtime, so I was wiped!


Do you get snacky when you’re bored?

Are there certain people you get together with when you go back to your hometown?

    I was feeling pretty snacky yesterday too. I had to try to keep my self distracted so I wouldn’t keep going to the kitchen!

    I’m really bad at the bored snacking. It tends to happen on the weekends. Looks like you stuck to healthy snacks – good for you! I have a couple friends who still live at home who I get together with whenever I’m home. I always try to see a woman who I used to ride with and her daughter (who I used to babysit) whenever I’m home. It’s a good way to keep you grounded and remember where you came from.

      I love seeing people from when I was really little! Although I’m lucky, some of my good friends I’ve known since I was 2!

    I love pregnant in heels! I get super snacky when I’m bored! I have a few friends from high school that I get together with, but most of them have moved away! Sounds like you had a fun day! I do that sometimes too where I’m about to go on a run, and my bed wins 🙂

    I definitely get snacky when I’m bored or stressed. I know it happens and its okay on occasion but its something I’ve been working on forever and haven’t been able to stop. I hate ruining my dinner with snacks!

    I get really snacky when bored! I try and just drink sweet tea instead when I know I’m not truly hungry but its tough. I do think its nice to just indulge in snacky days sometimes though 🙂

    Dinner was a darn good time last night! I’m looking forward to seeing you again tonight. Get your BINGO game face on!

    When I’m bored all I think about is food! And the more I think about the more I want it!

    I have a horrible habit of snacking too much and ruining my appetite for lunch and/or dinner! Its awful because I love making meals and I basically ruin it for myself and then scold myself. Every.time.

    I definitely get snacky, especially on the weekends. My lunch usually consists of three snacks throughout the day instead of an actual meal, oops!

  12. May 16, 2012 6:19 pm

    I’m not really a snacky person – I like three solid meals but there are some days where I feel like I could eat an arm off…

  13. May 16, 2012 7:11 pm

    haha! some days are just more snacky than others. totally cool! your body probably needed it. and ps – pregnant in heels is a freakin’ addicting show!

    I am so bad – I get snacky when I am bored and even worse, I get snacky when I am nervous and/or stressed. For example, law school exam time, bar exam and now, when I am at work!

    Oh man… being bored is the ULTIMATE catalyst for snacking! If I’m good, I’ll reach for baby carrots, grapes, or I’ll cut up an apple. If I’m bad… well, let’s just say that nothing is safe!
