It’s Wednesday, and I’ve been longing to participate in What I Ate Wednesday for TOO LONG. The only thing holding me back was the fact that I always either forgot or felt weird about photographing every single thing I ate. I know, I know…I’m lame.
But not today! On Monday, I photographed just about everything I ate. I was out and about, so many of the things I ate were on-the-go. Let’s take a look, shall we?
For breakfast, I was still at home. Sunday night I ate a lot–I had no power so I essentially had nothing to do besides eat. Because of this, I wasn’t too hungry in the morning. Regardless, I know I have to eat SO I DID!
Banana Bread bagel + PB // Coffee + almond milk & sugar // (not pictured) gummy vitamins!
For my morning snack I had to have a beloved Quest Bar. Because DUH. I also was at Starbucks, so I opted for another White Mocha. 🙂 Just a tall, this time. Still very calorie dense and DELISH.
For lunch, I had just spoke at a high school for my work, and I happened to be right by Chipotle….when you happen to be right by Chipotle, you don’t even question it. You turn into robot mode and you walk in there and you get Chipotle. I opted for a bowl with white rice, black beans, half chicken and half steak, sour cream, cheese, green salsa, and of course…GUAC. If you don’t get guac at Chipotle…don’t talk to me. Just kidding, still talk to me.
About three hours later I knew I needed a snack, and luckily I had brought some with me. A chocolate brownie Combat Crunch bar did the trick.
Normally, I don’t like to do too many protein bars in a day. I normally will prep food to bring with me but since I was gone for the whole day and don’t have a lunch box (really need to get one) I opted to bring some non-perishable snacks. Not complainin’!
By dinner time, I was about to head back to my house for the day. I assessed whether I wanted to eat the food I had at home or just stop and grab something on the way. I decided to make it a take-out day all the way! What did I choose…?
Port of Subs to the rescue! They don’t have these where I lived in California, and once I came to Reno I was able to try it for the first time. It’s significantly better than Subway and Jimmy Johns. Not as good as Mr. Pickles, but much cheaper and delicious. I got a foot long with turkey, provolone, pickles, onions, lettuce, honey mustard, tomatoes, and they also put salami on half which was weird because I literally did not ask for salami. I took it off, because salami is gross. Lawl. Yes, I ate this all. Gains.
I came home and got some work and editing done, then by about 8 p.m. I was ready for my gain bowl. 🙂
Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, a scoop of Quest Vanilla Milkshake protein, cookie crisp, and a chocolate cookie that I picked up from Port of Subs. The photo doesn’t do it justice–that thing was HUGE. And delicious.
After this, I had a few scoops of peanut butter to make sure I had enough calories for the day. Since stopping IIFYM and tracking at all it’s important that I am getting enough to repair my body still. I think I did pretty good for my first day of “intuitive” eating. I ate more than I was comfortable with–and that’s great. That’s what I need to be doing. I NEED THE GAINS!
I did, however, estimate the calories at the end of the day and actually found that this was all close to 4,000. Not too shabby.
I hope you enjoyed this! Let me know if you want me to continue doing WIAW! 🙂
Talk to me:
Do they have Port of Subs where you live?
Do you get guacamole at Chipotle? If not, why not? Are you even human? No, the answer is no.
