WIAW: back on that healthy train




I did a great job getting produce into my day today! It’s the little things, right? Considering I dove headfirst into a bag of m&ms at 10pm yesterday I did a great job starting from scratch this morning.

ImageI hardly ever go out to breakfast but I was running late this morning and had a giftcard so I picked up some Panera oatmeal. It was steel cut oats topped with  brown sugar, pecans, and strawberries. It was AMAZING. I’ve never been gung-ho about Panera (except the black bean soup yummm) but this was out of this world delicious.

In other news I read an article that cardigans are for old people. Not sure what that means, or what journalism has come to, but my cardi and I disagree. From a warmth and fashion stance.

ImageLunch was chicken chili with avocado and cheddar cheese from Protein Bar. Like I said, I was running late so today I made an exception and bought lunch too. Not my favorite thing considering I spent $11 on this meal (absurd) but I have to say that with the temps in the teens this lunch felt great.


Luckily I did manage to grab a few snacks for the afternoon at the office.


Hearty snacks right there. I ate these right before I left the office because I knew I’d be working out and would need something to power me until dinner.

Today was fun because I discovered the rowing machine at my gym! I rowed 3000m and did 35 minute on the elliptical while watching Chopped.


The rowing machine is a great way to switch things up in the gym. I blasted some music, rowed to the beat, and it was 3000m before I knew it.

I ran upstairs to make the new episode of Modern Family so whipped up a quick dinner of barbeque chicken, Parmesan couscous, and broccoli.

ImageNow all I need to do is meet my chocolate quota for the day, wash my face, and lay on the couch for the rest of the night. Perfect. Sidenote, I’m going to Boston tomorrow night after work for the weekend–it’ll be my first time there so if you have any suggestions, please throw them my way!
