Another week has come and gone! That means it’s time for yet another WIAW :)
I planned on going to the gym early with my sister but when I was laying in bed and didn’t hear her wake up, I decided to just lay my head back on my pillow. Good decision for sure.
Kale bagel with a drippy egg, an orange, and greek yogurt with strawberries and blueberries
I had work today so lunch was eaten there. I had time to eat an actual meal so I took this time to enjoy some of the oh so delicious food I drool over all day.
Kale salad with cabbage, apples, almonds, avocado, currants, maple orange dressing, and tahini
This is definitely one of my all time favorite dishes that we serve. My goal is to recreate it. But that maple orange dressing is just so dang good!
This is called a Boogie Bar at work but it’s basically banana bread with almonds, coconut, and chocolate chips. Again, one of my favorites.
I worked out with my friend and took an Athletic Training class like last week followed by some bicep/back work. I wasn’t sure what she was going to think of the class, but as it turned out, she loved it! She thought the instructor was amazing as well and loved how challenging it was. It’s a go back fo sho!
Roll before dinner
I was really hungry by the time dinner rolled around so I did something I never thought I would do. I ate a roll. A roll with white bread. But the night didn’t end there…
Veggie sandwich on wheat with no mayo or cheese and chips
That’s right…chips. And I ate them. They make these fresh at the restaurant so I figured if I were to eat a potato chip, it would be better to eat homemade ones. When the plate was sat in front of me, I grabbed a chip, turned to my mom, and slipped it into my mouth, with a smile on my face. She said, “No way!” I could see how happy she was that I was letting loose and, to be honest, they tasted pretty darn good. I shared a few but besides that, I ate them all. All by myself :)
To be honest, I don’t really regret eating them or the roll. I’ve loosened up so much on my eating that it felt nice not to order a salad without the dressing. The salad section was actually the last part I looked at. I left the restaurant with a smile on my face for the progress I have made. I was able to enjoy the company and not think about the chips I just ate. I just…lived.
Any foods you’ve challenged yourself with lately?
Banana bread: yay or nay?
