What I Ate Wednesday- Just a Day in the Life

 

Good morning! Before I get to some eating action I better announce the winner of the signed Bob workout DVD.

Thanks to random.org the winner is…. Jessica!

Yay!!! I’m so stinking excited for you! And you better believe a Flat Kitty is coming along with the DVD. Since I see you at boot camp every Saturday I’ll just bring them with me this week.

 

Now on to some eats. I got some requests to see what I eat throughout the day and while it’s a little overwhelming to take pictures of every single thing (I don’t know how some of those bloggers do it) I thought I’d try to do it every Wednesday for little party my friend Jenn hosts every week.

Hey look, it’s a special one today!

 
Here’s a little peak at my day yesterday.
 
Breakfast
 
I posted a before picture on Twitter during one of our chia chats.

It ended up looking a bit like this though. Here’s a recycled picture for you.

It was the same exact thing I put together for New Year’s Eve breakfast (chia berry jam, Kashi Go Lean vanilla oatmeal packet, 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt and tablespoon of SunButter). It was also accompanied by a sugar free gingerbread latte (made with unsweetened vanilla almond milk).

Lunch

I made those same chicken and spinach enchiladas I posted about yesterday, but downsized them a bit (less jalapeño yogurt dip and less soup) and subbed in two Flatout wraps instead of the corn tortillas then doctored them up a bit with some chopped romaine and salsa.

I like them much better the original way with corn tortillas. I love Flatouts, but not so much for these enchiladas.

I even made a toddler friendly version in form of quesadillas for the boys.

Snack

During naptime I scarfed down an apple with some Naturally More.

Then around 5:15 pm STUFT Daddy (my hero) took the boys to Tutu’s house for dinner so I could tackle some organizing projects around the house. I made myself a dark chocolate peppermint mocha for the occasion.

Who is that peeking out over my head? You know you want one!

I usually don’t drink caffeine that late, but I had to get a little help to brave this

and then this.

I got my run in while all my boys were away and watched this movie.

Thank you Bad Teacher for 10 miles.

 

Dinner

I spent my quiet time after the boys were in bed with my ever so original broccoli slaw spaghetti minus the chicken (with some mushrooms and olives) and cheese sandwiches.

IMG_8287

I was really proud of my two little garlic nuggets made with a Flat Foldit (inside the Foldit was a Laughing Cow light Garlic and Herb cheese wedge, some garlic powder and some parmesan) in my sandwich maker (that thing never gets old).

IMG_8289

The other cheese sandwich was with a slice of Trader Joe’s light Muenster, Target brand light string cheese and a Babybel light cheese.

IMG_8290

Yes, I used that “clean” paper towel as my napkin for dinner. He he!

I enjoyed my dinner while watching “my boyfriend” on the new season of the Biggest Loser.

IMG_8293

Um… I’m over here!!!!!!

IMG_8291

He was totally looking for me don’t you think?

Smile

Dessert was a Skinny Cow chocolate truffle bar.

I cut the show off early to hit the sack since I’m working on getting more sleep this year and all.

 

Phew. That was a lot. I definitely could not write down all my eats every day. It’s too hard on my brain.

It is a really good idea though to use a food journal if you’re trying to lose weight. It really helps you realize just how much you eat. I used to use one and loved it. It’s just a lot of work.

Okay, I’m off to get some breakfast and tackle some hills with the stroller today.

Have a wonderful day!

    That quesadilla looks perfect. Mine never get that good crisp to it – do you use butter or oil to make them? Or nothing?

    Love your glasses, btw!

      My glasses are WAY too old and definitely not the right prescription anymore. Oops. That quesadilla came out better than the other ones. Ha! No butter or anything. It may have just been the tortilla I used. :)

    Always like seeing people’s daily eats (but yes, it’s a lot of work – I’m definitely not a “food blogger” either in that sense!)…Love your food creations and gotta check out your broccoli slaw spaghetti – I love that stuff! Here’s to the hills – have a great day!

      STUFT Mama says:

      Yeah, it IS a lot of work. I always think it’s a good idea, but halfway through they day (and the post) I’m usually over it. :) PS- those darn hills were NOT my friend today. Ha ha!

      STUFT Mama says:

      I only had time to watch half of the episode (with my new curfew and all). Hopefully tonight I can catch the rest. Love the #kicksair. You’re too funny. :)

    I should really try that chia jam. Looks more exciting then how I normally have my oats ;) And broccoli slaw spaghetti is another one of my favorite meals!! This sure looks like it was a pretty tasty day. Makes me even hungrier than I already was… thanks a lot ;) KIDDING!! I really want to watch this season of Biggest Loser but my dog started FLIPPING out every time the scale beeped at weigh in time. It was just not worth it anymore – have they fixed that yet?????

    Hi Kristin – I so love your recipes – I HAVE to try the broccoli slaw spaghetti and those grilled cheese sandwiches – even got the sandwich maker from YOUR STORE on Amazon. I can report that DC was 16 degrees this morning as I drove my 13 year old to school at 6:50 in the morning (first bell for him is at 7:20 am – insane!).
    Here’s a question for you – do you have any shoe recommendations – cross trainers or running – I’m always reading reviews to see what folks think – enjoy your day in CA.
    Take care,
    Amy

      Amy- Sooo…. shoes, it depends on what you’re looking for. I love, love, love mizunos for running. They’re the only shoes I wear. Cross trainers are a bit more difficult to find and figure out (depending on what exercise you’re going to be using them for). I’ve actually been wearing Nike running shoes that have a little extra lateral support as my cross trainers, but I’m in need of some good ones. I’m looking into getting some new ones. What kind of exercise are you planning on doing? :)
      Oh, and, um……… COLD!!!! I could never live there. I’m such a wuss. :)

    Broccoli slaw spaghetti sounds pretty dang awesome! I pinned that one to add to my Alex-friendly recipe gathering mission… as long as meat and cheese are involved, I’m sure I can convince him to eat it! ;)

    • 7.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Ooh yes, it is awesome. Although I have to admit I haven’t convinced Andrew yet how awesome it is. He’s not a big fan of how the house smells when I make it. LOL. Good luck though. Let me know how it turns out. :)

    All that food looks so good! I have TBL tapped can’t wait to watch it. I love Bob too!

    I watched that episode of Biggest Loser and can say without a doubt that he was DEFINITELY looking for you. You lucky girl, you. ;)

    I’ve never done a WIAW because I feel like the majority of what I eat is so boring but I’ve been secretly stashing lots of yummy recipes away from all of the WIAW posts I’ve read. :) Your day of eats looks delicious AND nutritious. Well done! :)

    • 10.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Oh, I’m so glad you saw that. I think everyone else must have missed it. Ha! I’m so boring with my eats, and man I feel like it’s a lot of pressure putting it all out there like that. I might be able to hack it once a week though. :) Happy New year! (I feel like we haven’t “talked” in awhile.)

  11. 11

    Yum, I love skinny cow icecreams… they don’t have those ones in Australia though!! Looks super good!

    Jessica says:

    Oh My Gosh I am soooooo excited! I read it on my phone this morning, but it wouldn’t let me post to your blog from my phone. I can’t wait to use the DVD! I promised Loretta I would take it to school so we can all get some use out of it (maybe in the fit lab after school). You have already made my year with this win!!!!!! Thank so much for being awesome and helping me get healthier (both with boot camp and all of your awesome recipes)!

      STUFT Mama says:
