First of all, thanks for all your sweet comments yesterday. I can’t believe a whole year has flown by since I started my blog! Now, on to today’s main event, What I Ate Wednesday. Thanks to Jenn for hosting!
Yesterday got off to a rocky start. As a result, I have no food pictures before noon. Sorry, I tried. After waking up at 3:30 AM and being wide awake (the WORST), I eventually dragged myself out of bed at 4:45 to head to the gym. Being the genius I am, I figured a 5-hour energy shot would wake me up enough to help me get in a decent workout. It worked and I ran for a solid 45 minutes, spending the last 15 minute sprinting my heart out and making the lady next to me give me funny looks.
Afterwards, however, is when I started making bad choices. I wanted Starbucks for breakfast, so I stopped and picked up a large coffee and their vegetable fontiago breakfast sandwich. I scarfed it down before I remembered to snap a picture, but this is what their website says it looks like. Much better than the actual product, which is very tasty, but not pretty.
I ended up feeling sick for most of the morning. I definitely learned my lesson about drinking too much caffeine before 7 AM. I think I’ll save the 5-hour energy shots for emergencies only!
By lunchtime, I was feeling much better and hit up a place called Taste Unlimited for lunch with a coworker. I’m completely predictable and ordered the same sandwich I always order: a 1/2 order of roast beef, havarti cheese, and house dressing on French bread.
Served with some sweet potato chips and a diet cream soda. It hit the spot and knowing me, I’ll probably be craving it again in a week!
Mid-afternoon, my 3:30 AM wake-up call caught up to me and I needed chocolate. Luckily, I have a secret stash in my office of dark chocolate/hazelnut cookies.
Dinner last night was breaded chicken tenders, cheesy broccoli, and brown rice. Nothing fancy, but I managed to get a vegetable in there so it’s gotta count for something.
Aaaand of course, the required glass of wine.
Looking back on my WIAW posts, I’ve started to realize I don’t really fit in with most of the healthy food posts out there. I’m making it my goal next week to have some kale thrown in somewhere so people will actually take me seriously. I’m healthy, I swear!!
On that note, I’m off to work for the day. Can’t wait to hear about what you all are eating lately!
What’s the best thing you ate yesterday?
What’s a lunch you find yourself craving all the time?
