Hello all! Here’s another installment of “What I Ate Wednesday”. My choices this week were not on the healthier side, I realize that, but I’ve been working out much more often and for a longer period of time to compensate somewhat.
Also, I’m a week away from being done with the semester! If that isn’t a good reason to indulge and enjoy foods than what is?
Breakfast: I had rice cake chips instead of the actual cake because they were out at the store last time I went :( Still delicious! And I think I like the chips even better for adding toppings. I had chocolate rice cake chips with a little peanut butter and a banana slice on top. Very delicious and filling! I would even use this as a snack…
After breakfast I went and hit the gym. I didn’t feel like running… so I decided to do a cycling class! Boy did it kick my butt- literally. I couldn’t walk right the rest of the day after sitting on that bicycle seat for an hour.
Post-workout I had a delicious salad from the RPAC. It was spinach and prosciutto, with feta cheese, granny apple slices, nuts, and a strawberry vinaigrette. Definitely a new fave! I can’t wait to come up with my own version of this salad.
Later that afternoon I had my coffee :) I downed it so quickly I forgot to take a picture! It was a light, frozen vanilla latte. As always, it was yummy. It’s my favorite drink and I have it every day. Next year I need an expresso maker to make it on my own! Coffee drinks on campus are too expensive for my poor college budget…
For dinner I also forgot to take a picture before scarfing down a homemade parfait. I used light vanilla yogurt, fresh strawberries, and cheerios as my granola. I loved the combination, and I plant to make it again later this week- this time with a picture though!
After dinner I had a snack wells treat. I love the vanilla creme sandwich cookies. The texture is just what I want. And for not being a vanilla fan, this treat does pretty well for itself. I would prefer Oreos any day, but these sandwich cookies take the cake.
I met with my bible study for the last time of the year last night… and I’m so glad I didn’t take pictures of the indulgences we had! There was an ice cream sundae bar and special double chocolate cake. I had WAY too much sugar, but I didn’t feel guilty because I know that one meal won’t make me fat. Just like another healthy meal won’t make me skinny. The key is moderation, and I felt like I moderated my intake of the sweets last night :)
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
