I had written up the perfect blog post for today. What I ate…what happened when I tried something new..it was simply perfectly (okay yeah…no not really) but alas I don’t save my work, I never learn my lessons and closed Microsoft word before transferring into wordpress. Whoops…Typical Hollie moment. Better that then the 1500 list of names I had to manually go through…as always worse things in the world.
So this week, I got outside my comfort zone and bought some new peanut butter. Why? Because I was out and needed peanut butter. But this isn’t just any peanut butter, this was peanut butter and co ( read so many blogs about how great it is…LOL) and tried a weird flavor. (I literally have been a normal peanut butter fan for…well all my life). This peanut butter was on sale at the grocery store (price chopper) so I thought…eh it’s the same price and I’ll be adventurous.
I’ll save said story for breakfast. You should know by now I have a chocolate waffle most mornings. With about 500 calories per waffle without any peanut butter, it keeps me moving in the morning. I actually enjoy going to work out on the elliptical with a somewhat full stomach. If it’s empty I cramp up. So I normally eat breakfast around 6, go to the gym from 7-8:30 and have work at 9 (most days).
So this peanut butter I bought was actually spicy. As in my mouth burned and then I had heart burn an hour later. So with that I’m sticking with normal peanut butter. Has anyone tried this stuff?
Lunch was with the work gang. Two of these salads. Though I do enjoy balsamic dressing , I was feeling very Italian today and got Italian dressing. My staple work salad at the dining hall is spinach, feta cheese (at least ½ cup), banana peppers, olives (love olives), chicken (and lots of it), dried cherries and walnuts. It’s so good I always go back for a bonus round. I really think I have about 1000 calories of salad…I don’t care or mind.
After a rather stressful day at work, I wanted to come home and eat all the cookies in every dining hall for dinner. Since that might be inappropriate I just made myself a roast beef sandwich. This might be the greatest sandwich I’ve ever made in my life…partially why I chose to do my WIAW today because normally my food looks like crap.
Afterwords, I went to the gym and did my core routine. Nothing too exciting there… Upon finishing that I was craving something sweet since I forwent all of the cookies. I was going to get ice cream but they were out of my favorite flavors at Stewerts (upon grumbling) I just went to the fastrack and got a decaf coffee with whip cream and had my greek yogurt protein shake (ie: 1 cup greek yogurt, ½ cup milk, some blueberries, ice cubes and some sweetener). It sufficed.
Questions for you:
1. Have you ever tried that peanut butter?
2. What did you eat this week?
