What I Ate Wednesday: Improvising

Last night, I wanted to create some kind of “Biggest Loser” drinking game except exercise would replace the shots. I thought I’d do 10 lunges every time Jillian made someone cry and then I remembered Jillian was no longer on the show.
So I tried to think of a new game (and failed) while I watched, read e-mails, ate oatmeal and stole bites of Mark’s ice cream, saving Jillian for this morning.
What did you think of last night’s show? I am super excited that they are bringing back the marathon but I’m still not so sure about the trainers. I spent a good portion of the show thinking inappropriate things about Anna and Enrique Iglesias.
Now, for the main event – my eats.
Pre-run snack
Chocolate Cherry Almond Luna Protein Bar
Old-fashion oats with Peanut Butter Puffins, sliced banana and a splash of almond milk
Lettuce wraps with Queso Fresco & Chipotle Laughing Cow, Spanish rice and Peanut Butter Finger’s salsa chicken; corn pudding; and Weight Watchers mini bar (unpictured).
Afternoon snacks
Hot chocolate (it’s so friggin cold in the office that I had no choice but to get one)
Carrots with hummus, string cheese and an apple (unpictured)
“Make It Up As You Go” Stuffed Chicken with Dreamfield’s penne and broccoli. For my stuffed chicken, I pounded out a chicken breast (two actually – Mark thought he had to eat, too) and “filled” it with a Sundried Tomato & Basil Laughing Cow wedge and spinach. I then seared it on each side then finished cooking it in leftover marinara and a can of diced tomatoes. Completely yum.
Evening snack
Oatmeal … again. Supposedly oats builds boob milk supply, something I definitely need to do. I pretended it was dessert by putting some Nutella at the bottom and serving it in a glass dish.


  1. Your dinner looks so good. I love that Laughing Cow flavor - I buy it in bulk at Sam's Club!!!! I put it on everything - pita bread, whole wheat bagel thin, triscuts, celery . . . though, never in chicken - OMG yum!

    I didn't get to see BL last night - had to work until 10 p.m. - boo!

  2. Your lunch looks amazing and I totally need to make some of that (or have my hubby do it. lol). BL was ok.. what I was able to watch of it. I am glad they are bringing back the marathon. I always loved that about it. It's going to be different without Jillian for sure.

  3. Looks like you are back on dairy? How's that going? I assume Miles is less grumpy now. ;)

  4. I love how you trick yourself into thinking something is dessert. I do the same thing with flavored seltzer water. Sometimes I add frozen berries to think its like a milkshake or parfait haha!

    I haven't seen last nights BL yet, but I am super bummed there is no Jillian. I don't think it will be the same... :(

  5. I watched BL and wasn't a huge fan. I don't want to spoil it for anyone but the teams seem a little unfair since the metabolism slows as we age. I'm still gonna watch though.

    I never thought of putting pb puffins on my oats, I'll have to try that.
