What I Ate 8/29/14

Friday, I just had to work but there was a catch – Rob was riding up to Philadelphia with me!  So I knew I would be going out later…

9:00 AM  Cheddar cheese omelet with zucchini and tomatoes.  Coffee with cream and coconut sugar.

I had a morning meeting and worked through lunch.  Before getting on the train, Rob and I ran out for

25 Foods To Eat

We’ll get to the 25 foods in a minute.  First, my daily eats recap.  I liked Kristen’s recap of her day with timestamps so I’m going to go with that today!

9:00AM I needed some quick carbs before my workout so I grabbed an Archer Farms Simply Balanced Very Berry Fruit Strip.  Just something to hold me over so I could get Focus

Back to School Fall 2014

Well, yesterday didn’t go as planned…

I got up at 5:30 and managed to get out of the house right on time! I had a coupon for a huge coffee at Dunkin Donuts. There is one right near the train station so I grabbed that… and a muffin. Whoops! I got the reduced fat blueberry muffin thinking it would have less calories but it

Calories: 1430 Fat: 35g (low) Carbs: 194g (high) Protein: 65g (low)

Yesterday I thought I started off okay with some leftover pizza for breakfast (topped with fresh tomatoes) but that is where it all started to go downhill.  My schedule got changed and I was exhausted so I stopped for a huge (free) Dunkin Donuts drink before heading to school.  I didn’t check the

What I Ate 8/25/14

Yesterday was going so well!  I was right on track with calories, I felt good, I had a great dinner planned.  The end of the day didn’t work out as well as I’d hoped as something came up and we ended up with burritos for dinner.

Note: I only ate half of the bagel in the lower left photo.

All things considered

What I Ate 8/24/14

How was the first day of the challenge?  Well, the challenge is to report everything and here it is!

So technically, that’s it right?  Well, not exactly.  Let’s take yesterday as an example of how I’ve been eating for the last few weeks.  Lots of junk.  And that repeated picture of the beer isn’t a mistake.  There were two. 

On the bright side,

Local Eats: Uncle Bill’s Pancake House

When my sister first told me the name of this place, I giggled a little because I have an Uncle Bill.  Anyway, she claimed it was amazing and we should go since I wanted to try someplace I’d never been before.  Off we went! 

The location we chose (there are several) was the 40th Street one in Ocean City, NJ.  I expected it to

Ice Cream & Science

Yesterday, I talked about my training plans but I have not been exercising this week much at all. I have been using all my free time for packing and cleaning because I go home on Friday! I am really excited to be back home. It has been a great experience in Florida but I am really ready to be back in my own home again.
