I’ve gotten several requests over the last few months about what I eat daily (And by that I mean maybe 3 in 2 months). As a self proclaimed walmart foodie shopper I can’t say I’m that thrilling of an eater but I did go out of my way to remember to take photos. By going out of my way I I wrote on my hand: take some photos. I knew breakfast wouldn’t be an issue but remember to take photos for lunch and dinner? That’s a whole different ball game. I’m really scatter brained throughout the day so if I don’t write something down, I don’t remember.
Lately I have been eating a lot of pancakes again. I went through a phase a while back (around 3 years ago) where I ate pancakes for breakfast nearly every day. They were fast, easy to make and simple. In fact about two years ago, I posted a new pancake recipe on my blog every week. I got sick of them, moved on to eggs for a while, then bagels and now I’m back to pancakes. It will probably change again I normally just add ¾ cup of flour, an egg, baking powder and if I’m feeling cocoa powder then cocoa powder too. I used to post a lot of recipes about it but then realized that was not my style and some recipes were weird. So I stopped doing that…
Breakfast 6:00 am
Then I went to the gym for about an hour, did some elliptical as well as lifted weights. I showered and headed to work.
Coffee: 9 am. I stopped at Wawa and got my coffee. Since you’ve never seen a photo of coffee, here you go! 20 ounces is the following: 16 ounces coffee and 4 ounces cream. I think I like my cream with a few tablespoons of coffee. I also had a cliff bar. They were on sale at the grocery last week so they are my “bar of choice” this week.
12 Lunch It was craving a roast beef sandwich and the deli makes really good wraps. It was exactly what I was craving. I really wanted roast beef.
Then I continued to work and I continue to stare at people’s feet. I truly enjoy working so normally it goes by pretty quickly. There wasn’t too much of interest this particular day. Many new runners came in for a first pair of shoes, a few people wanted a pair a new pair of their favorite styles.
By 5:00 pm I grabbed a cliff bar. I have been enjoying them lately and I needed something to hold me over. I don’t normally get home until between 7:30-9 (depending on our closing hours) so I couldn’t wait that long between lunch and dinner.
Then at 7pm it was time to head home. So I drove back home and was exhausted.
7:30pm I decided to make some boring dinner. I normally just decide on the way home what I want to eat. Depending on my day (was it a stressful day at work…am I just lazy to cook?). It all depends on what I’m craving. Since T has been gone, I don’t have to worry about judgement about what I eat for dinner (kidding, he doesn’t judge). I ended up having some left over salmon that I made the other day so I just had a salmon salad. It took me about 5 minutes to reheat. So I get home at 7:33 and I’m eating by 7:38. That is pretty much that.
After I’m done eating (and while I’m eating) I tend to just watch TV, catch up on news, blogs, current events and whatever else I feel like. I pretty much give myself until 9pm to just relax and do whatever. Around 9, I like to turn off my internet and just relax. Whether that is just watching some TV or whether that is just going to bed. I’ve noticed I sleep a lot better when I turn off technology and I sleep with my cell in another room.
I guess this turned into a day in my life and what I like to eat. I can see why food bloggers are always so busy and have no free time. This post took forever to do and it was a real pain to remember to take photos of my food. It’s a lot harder then blogging about running.
Questions for you:
What is a day in the life like for you?
What did you eat today? What are some good lunch suggestions? (Or am I the only lazy person who enjoys the classic peanut butter and jelly).
