What I — Wednesday

Peas and Crayons

Thanks to the lovely Jenn for hosting our weekly party.  I’m using this week’s recap as a what I ate, snacked on, discovered, and did Wednesday!

What I ate for breakfast:


Sample of the Fiber One 80 calorie cereal with pumpkin yogurt milk- pumpkin, greek yogurt, and vanilla almond milk. 


Kept me full for a long time thanks to the combination of protein and fiber! 

What I snacked on all morning:


This incredible granola

What I ate for lunch at work:


Blueberry bagel thin, 2% L.O.L. American cheese, and egg whites.  With a side of broccoli and portobellos.

What I got from a friend at work:


Coconut chai tea – the message on the bag was better than the flavor of the tea!  I leave my tea bags in the hot water as I drink my tea to make it strong, but this barely had any flavor.

What I discovered and tried for the first time:


Kiwi berries!  Has anyone tried these?  They’re like grapes with thicker skin and kiwi centers.  Delish, and in season now!


What I snacked on in the afternoon:


Dark chocolate covered Godiva almonds from last Christmas.  Hmm, think I save things too long?

What I did after work:  Went for a run.  Without ankle pain.  Okay, with minimal pain.  And it was only a mile.  But it’s something.  I still plan on keeping my workout routine varied and continuing with strength training several times a week, but it felt so good to run, even a short distance.  My doc/PT both thought I’d never run without pain again.

What I made dinner out of:


My leftovers from our night out this past weekend, plus some homemade guacamole and ground beef / white beans to make tacos.  A quick, satisfying meal before….

What I listened to live:


Taking Back Sunday!  One of my favorite bands since highschool.  It’s funny to think I went to my first TBS concert with my highschool boyfriend, and saw them for the 5th or 6th time last night with my husband and younger brother!

What was the last band you saw live in concert, or the last new food you tried?

    Kiwi berries sound awesome – I’m going to look for those! Lately I’ve been trying different apple varieties (loving Tango!) and ways to eat tahini.

    I saw Sugarland this past weekend and had a blast! Taking Back Sunday… I didnot know they were still playing. Used to love them!

    Kiwi berries?! What?! Those sound so cool, never seen them!

    Congrats on your run, Claire! So happy it worked out for you. 🙂

    I saw The Legwarmers (an 80s cover band) last spring, which was really fun, but I haven’t been to any shows since. Need to change that!

    I totally keep treats for a long time too and then am pleasantly surprised when I pull them out from the depths of my pantry.

    I’m not a huge concert fan, though I have seen DMB a few times.

    I am totally intrigued by the kiwi berries! I’ll definitely be looking out for some on my next trip to the grocery store. 🙂

    The kiwi berries look so cool! How did you like them? I totally want to go out and find them! Where did you find them at?

    I am obsessed with those kiwi berries! The only problem is they are soo darn expensive and I eat them in about ehhh 6 minutes? I am not good at making them last.. worth the splurge occasionally though 🙂
