Chick-fil-A kind of day – WIAW

Well guys. I had Chick-fil-A for TWO meals today. Oops.

I didn’t even mean for it to happen this way. I had to take Murphy to my parent’s house this morning and on the way over there I realized I hadn’t eaten breakfast. Chicken biscuits are my favorite breakfast to splurge on and sweet tea is like my coffee. I love it and I need it every day.

Lunch was pretty normal/healthy (thankfully! CFA twice a day cannot be great for me) Turkey sandwich and strawberries with lots and lots of water.

After work, I had about 15 minutes to get some food before I needed to head to campus to teach. Chick-fil-A is super close to the college, so that’s where I went + I could eat chicken all day, every day. #noshame

What did you eat today? I love reading other WIAW posts. Feel free to share with me in the comments!

This post is NOT sponsored by Chick-fil-A. I just really love their food.

What I Ate Wednesday v.3

Another week, another Wednesday. Since I actually remembered to photograph my food today, I thought I would share another WIAW post. I always love reading these on other people’s blogs — so here we go!

Let me know your favorite thing you ate today in the comments below!

Breakfast.

Lunch. Basically the same every day. Lemon pepper tuna fish, crackers and sweet peppers.


Sometimes if I’m super hungry or know I am going to have a long day, I’ll eat some Greek yogurt for something sweet and to keep me full longer.

Post-run shake. Recipe here!

Dinner.

I actually forgot to take a picture of it, but I had mutton for dinner last night. Real, Kentucky mutton. If you ever come to my neck of the woods, check out Moonlite Bar-B-Q or Old Hickory BBQ. They have the best BBQ and mutton in the entire state.

Sticking to my meal plan

This week I am determined to stick with my “meal plan.” Now, I don’t have everything written in stone, but I have a general idea of what I’m going to have at every meal.

Usually I end up eating way too many potato chips at lunch and then decide I have to a dessert after supper – even if I wasn’t exactly hungry.

So this week I armed myself (and my pantry) with al kinds of fruits, veggies and healthy snacks! We can do this, friends! Eating healthy doesn’t have to be miserable. Find whatever works for YOU.

Then sometimes, no matter how hard you try and plan, this happens:

Stay strong, friends! We got this. Annnnd, I just want to say, there is no such thing as “eating perfect.” Eat intuitively and healthy, but don’t restrict foods from your diet. I usually eat one sweet treat a day. It doesn’t kill me or make me gain 10 pounds. Just don’t over do it.

Find what works for you and keep at it. Results take time.

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Let’s kick butt the rest of this week.

What I Ate Wednesday v.2

WHADDUP WEDNESDAY?! Basically after today my week is a breeze. I am so excited to get the holiday started!

But before all the fun and presents, I wanted to talk about one of my favorite subjects — food! Here is another What I Ate Wednesday post. Enjoy!

*Here is my first WIAW post.

Breakfast was a peanut butter granola bar (I forget the name of the brand, but I get them at Aldi) and milk in my cow mug.

I snacked on some Christmas candy while running errands. Reese’s trees are my favorite.

Lunch was a turkey, cheese and pickle wrap with a baked sweet potato. Sorry for the ugly food picture, but hey, #reallife. Lunch is always so random, but I really try to eat somewhat healthy. At least since I have to go home and let Murphy out, I eat better than I would staying at the office/my desk.

Dinner was a big ole salad. Got to get those greens when I can.Pre-Packaged Salad

Dessert was yogurt! If I’m being honest, it’s not my favorite thing to eat for dessert, but I know it’s a lot better for me than chocolate or PopTarts, so I go with it.

WANT TO JOIN IN ON THE FUN?

I’d love to see your food choices in a day in the life of you! Meals, snacks, drinks, and desserts — all the good (and maybe even not so good) stuff!

If you have a recipe to share or a workout you’d love to include, go for it. As long as a WIAW post accompanies it you’re good to go!

Simply photograph a day of meals any day of the week and create your What I Ate Wednesday post to link up on any Wednesday you choose. Don’t stress over photographing your food on an actual Wednesday. Just pick a day and snap away! Can’t wait to see what you all come up with!

Soup and doughnuts

Holy moly, how is it already Wednesday? I feel like I have been running a million miles an hour this week trying to get everything done before vacation. Anyone ever feel like that? The week before vacation is filled with making sure I leave a detailed list for what has to been done while I’m gone, preparing things in advance, scheduling social media posts (for work and the blog) and so on. IT’S CRAZY.

Okay, tangent over. What’s new with you guys? While this week has been crazy, so has my eating. When I was sick last week, nothing tasted good and ate cereal for my meals multiple times a day. Now, I’m craving ALL THE CARBS, but still trying to eat somewhat healthy.

So last night I had vegetable soup. This morning I had doughnuts. Life is about balance.

What foods do you indulge in every now and then? Doughnuts are by far my favorite. I love all kinds of doughnuts and pastries (again with the carbs) and it makes breakfast feel all the more special.

Happy Wednesday, y’all! Hopefully I’m back tomorrow with a post, but if not, be sure to check out Friday’s post (Friday Favorites are so fun to write!)

What I Ate Wednesday

Happy Hump Day! I am itching for that 3-day weekend, so every day closer to Saturday makes me do a little happy dance.

I always love when other bloggers give glimpses into their everyday lives. I’m also super nosey and love to see what other people eat on a daily basis. So here it is! What I Ate Wednesday (which is really a recap from yesterday’s eats).

Water: 6ish glasses. Trying to get more in everyday!

Breakfast – Peanut Butter Puffins. I could eat this for breakfast all day, every day. #PeanutButterLover
