WIAW: Job Hunt Edition
|January 11, 2012||Posted by Katy under Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch, Snack, What I Ate Wednesday, WIAW|
It’s been over a month since my last What I Ate Wednesday post! Of course it was for good reason since I had other topics I wanted to cover, but I am back.
I am not sure if I will do it every Wednesday as I have in the past, but probably at least once a month. For me personally, having these posts keeps me accountable with my diet and makes sure I don’t eat frozen yogurt for every meal.
Here is my What I Ate Wednesday: Job Hunt Edition…
Even though I don’t have to rush to work or school at the moment, I am transitioning back into a normal schedule. I got into a nasty sleep schedule over break (going to bed at midnight or later and getting up at 9am) and I am still a little tired from Disney, but today I got up at a normal time!
Since I did not have to go to the gym this morning, I had breakfast at home. I stuck with my standard yogurt bowl with Greek yogurt, oats, strawberries, blueberries, 1/2 banana and chia seeds.
I caught this one eyeballing my breakfast…
After spending a few hours job hunting and going for an easy 3 mile run, I made a quick lunch before running errands.
Leftover brown rice from last night with two eggs (one yolk and two egg whites- I’m making progress!) and carrots with hummus. I also finished off a container of yogurt from last night’s dessert.
About an hour after lunch, my stomach was growling a little so I ate a mini Clif Bar from my Disney race swag bag before heading out for my errands.
This flavor was ok, but tasted very medicinal to me. I probably would not buy this flavor if I saw it at the store.
A few hours later I had another snack of an apple with peanut butter, cottage cheese, and a cup of almond milk.
I have been really focusing on my nutrition this year and ensuring that I am getting all the vitamins and minerals I need, especially calcium! The almond milk has 45% of the daily recommended value.
I wasn’t incredibly hungry since I had a late snack so I made a salad inspired by my favorite vegetarian salad at Chipotle.
Not a pretty picture but on a bed of romaine and spinach I put the remainder of the brown rice, black beans, mushrooms, zucchini, green peppers, carrots and a dollop of Greek yogurt.
Another hour of job hunting/ applying/ resume editing and I’m off to bed!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
Are you starting the new year right with your nutrition?
