What I Ate Wednesday #12: Internship

Spread the love

Usually my WIAW days are recorded on Sundays or Mondays, which are my off days. This time I almost forgot about recording my eats again but thankfully I still had Tuesday! So this time my eats are for yesterday, which is my internship day (one of three). Gonna jump right in! Thank you to Jen for hosting again. Lovely Jen.

For breakfast, I had my usual-ish. One egg and one egg white with onions and spinach. Red peppers on the side. Mmm.

For early lunch, I brought some cherries with me to the internship from home. They were on sale at the grocery store and they taste delicious! Perfect sweetness/tartness! Score!

The girls from the internship and I decided to take a lunchtime walk over to Starbucks and around the city for a bit to stretch out and get some sun. It’s a gorgeous day out and we had stay outside to enjoy it at least for a little bit. Michelle Obama was at a building nearby our office too and there was a LOT of cops out. We didn’t see her though 🙁

We stopped by the Farmer’s Market nearby too to sample some berries and cherries from the vendors.

After the internship, I got home and was a little hungry again so I made myself an applesauce, greek yogurt, and high fiber cereal concoction which I haven’t had in quite some time. It was yummy.

I was still craving/hungry after eating this though so I decided to fix myself up a bit more food. I took a cup of cherries (mmm) and made the healthy quick chocolate frosting I used for Father’s Day cupcakes and ate it like pudding. Same thing, almost. Delicious, oh my. I almost felt guilty eating the chocolate pudding, it tasted so good. Oh by the way, today (Tuesday) is national Chocolate pudding day! 😛

Today is cardio day of Curvalicious and I decided to do the recommended 20 minute HIIT instead of a fitness class I normally would opt for. I don’t know why, I didn’t feel like waiting till 730p to do piloxing and I didn’t feel like doing spinning for a full 60 min anyway. So I opted for HIIT for 20 minutes with 45 minute intervals of walking at 4.0 and then running at 7.0 with some variations within that whenever I needed a longer break. It was my first time doing HIIT in over a year and I have to say I actually LIKED it. This is huge for me because I am not a cardio person. 🙂 When I got home, I made my latest dinner obsession: stir fry veggies with spaghetti sauce and nutritional yeast flakes. Oh my gawd, this is heaven in a bowl.

Yes, I realize it looks kinda gross on a picture but it looks better in person. And boy, does it taste yummy!

I then decided to have the Arctic Zero strawberry chocolate dipped bar. Deliciousness. My favorite so far. Keep yourselves ready for an upcoming review and maybe something more 😉

While there weren’t any added sugars in anything I ate today, except for stevia, I think I should try to reduce my sugar intake a bit more. I think it will help get my body fat lower while losing weight. Even though most of my sugar eaten comes from natural sources like fruit and yogurt, I still think I eat too much of it. Which sucks because I’m totally used to eating so much of it. Sigh. I’m just more into sweet, and not savory. I guess it’s time to try to change that :/
