I woke up this morning and reflected on what I ate yesterday. Seriously, not the best food day for me. Yesterday morning, I had seen a VERY small number on the scale for me. I have a feeling if I weigh today, I will not see that same number.

Here’s a glimpse of my eating yesterday. Not the best… I’m so much better when I have a plan!!!
I started by day with my usual breakfast these days, which is an English Muffin with a Garlic and Herb Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedge. Mmmmm. To kick it up a notch, I sprinkled it with about a teaspoon of Chia Seeds. I don’t know if you guys read Run Eat Repeat, but she’s one of my new favorite bloggers. She featured chia seeds yesterday on her blog, so I decided to try them on my muffin since they’ve been in my cupboard for months. DELISH!
Chia seeds are a great source of Omega 3s and fiber and just add a little crunch, no extra flavor. Try them!
This is where it started to get kind of crazy. I went to work at Starbucks yesterday. When I have reporting to do, I often go to Starbucks because I can jam out a lot of work with little interruption. Oh, and this is where the Salted Caramel Mochas are made so, it makes me love it even more!

Anywho, I got all caffeinated off an SCM and worked there for hours sucking down FOUR Venti ice waters… and I forgot about eating.
Now, I don’t mean this in the “I’m-a-waif-food-doesn’t-interest-me-kind-of-way.” I mean that I was chairdancing listening to my playlist and working hard and sorta forgot about lunch. Caffeine tends to affect me in this way. Hmmm…. maybe I should drink more coffee!
As I wrapped up my sales visits for the day, I realized I was FAMISHED. It was 5pm, and very close to dinner time…. but, I had a date last night so it wasn’t like I could go home and have dinner. SHOOT!
So, I went home and hit my freezer and found this guy.

Keep in mind, this image is NOT my own. There was no salad, nor a lovely glass of lemon water. No plate either. It was pretty much inhaled, with no scraps left behind. It’s sort of like a Hot Pocket, but I think MUCH better. It’s my go-to fast JC lunch because it only takes 90 seconds in the microwave and plates are optional.
So… I casually mentioned above that I had a date last night. Yes, this is a follow-up date to date #1 that I told you about a few weeks back. My crazy schedule sometimes gets in the way of my personal life, as evident here but just the same, I was excited to be seeing him again.
Note: As I start dating more (which hopefully will happen), I’ll probably make little mentions here and there of date-like activity. Know that while I would LOVE to tell you all about all the details, I may be a little vague just in case I ever decide to tell any of the boys about this site. Which obviously, when he’s the right one he’ll have to know about my secret blogging life (or else he’ll think I’m just really strangely food obsessed and take pics of everything I eat.)
Ok… so, let’s start with the NOT ugly. How about a peek at my date outfit, shall we?
I loved this look and picked it up at the BCBG Outlet at Colorado Mills. The top was on CLEARANCE for $9, and I paired that with a BARELY visible thick black belt. It’s sort of a Judy Jetson sleeve with tiny shoulder pads and little wings (?) The shirt fit sort of long so it might be a good pairing with skinny jeans, which always make me feel less than skinny. Either way, this look was CUTE.
So, I let the guy pick where we were going to dinner and what did he come up with?
And, to be going there on a practically empty stomach…. I probably ate 15 chips and ordered from their “healthier selections” menu… getting the Spinach Quesadilla. Now, for the record, I call bullshit on this restaurant. There is NO WAY that Spinach Quesadilla is on the healthier side. I would call it “meatless”, sure, but NEVER healthy. I love spinach enchiladas or spinach anything… so I knowingly took the splurge despite the false advertisement.
I also had a glass of wine. MyFitnessPal said it wasn’t the worst day ever, but gosh… Mexican late in the evening was not at all what I had in mind.
The great news is that I’ll be hitting the gym this afternoon to burn those calories off and then some. I can’t wait to get there!
Have a great day, my dears!
