WIAW~I’m Walking The Walk

I’m feeling strong and focused about this Entire food choice thing.  I’m feeling that I AM back on track and will continue to be.  Now of course, I know like all of you know, it will happen again at some point in time.  As long as it doesn’t happen TOO often and as long as I don’t need to pay anything to anybody (Weight Watchers) on Saturday, we can all remain friends!! ;-)

But of course we know why we’re here today.  Disneyworld may claim to be the happiest place on Earth (we all know it’s actually New Mexico ;-)  ) but the happiest Day of the week is Wednesday…Why?? What I Ate Wednesday, Of Course!!  It’s the fun and games thought up by Jenn at Peas & Crayons.  She just lets us play along!

Peas and Crayons

Our theme is still Fall Into Good Habits.  I guess I’ve been falling Back into good habits and I am feeling so much more focused and pleased with what I’ve been doing.

On Sunday night, I made something that does not photograph well, but was very tasty.

I sautéed up onion, garlic, zucchini and spices with a can of Ro-Tel fire roasted tomatoes with green chile.  When it was all cooked, I stirred in a cup of cottage cheese.  It got all bubbly and gooey and I then poured it all over previously prepared quinoa.  This was quick and delicious.  It’s great to have some grains cooked up and waiting in the fridge rather than me waiting for them!

Monday could have been a slip but I didn’t let it be.  Ralph and I took his son Bill out to breakfast for his birthday.  I chose wisely.

One of my favorite things…a spinach and Feta cheese omelette with sliced tomatoes.  Very good.  This was my first omelette at this diner and I was pleased.

Breakfast on Tuesday was fat-free vanilla yogurt topped with Fiber One and fresh strawberries.  Delicious.  Love my little stoneware bowl which I got from the “free” box at the church rummage sale!

Lunch was an old favorite…

A quick salad of Romaine, carrot sticks and 1 cup of reduced fat cottage cheese topped with Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime.  Very tasty and filling.

So what does any of this do with my title-Walking The Walk??

After almost 2 months absence due to traveling, I pulled on my sneakers and got out the door for a walk this morning!  I didn’t do the full route I had been doing prior to leaving, but I did about 3/4 of it and it made me very happy.  I feel better for having done it and happy for being back in my routine again.

So that’s What I Ate Wednesday for me this week.  Be sure to make your way over to Peas & Crayons when you’re finished here to see what everybody’s got in the feed bag this week and leave some comments…We ALL love to hear from you!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!

  1. What a nutrient packed dinner! I’ll have to keep that combo in mind next time I’m short on time…I ALWAYS have cottage cheese on hand!

    Good job getting out there and walking again! I don’t know about your area, but here, the weather has been PERFECT for nice afternoon/evening strolls!

    Happy WIAW, Fran!

    • Thanks, Heather! I walked in the morning and it was chilly to start but once my heart got going it was Perfect! I love my combos that I make like that. Pull out what’s available in the fridge/cupboard and just add it together. I get funny comments when I “cook” with cottage cheese. Glad you think it’s a good idea! ;-)

  2. yea for walking!! haha, can you tell what industry in am in, i was scrutinizing the photo of your shoes, trying to see the brand! so, fran, i could use two close ups: your shoes and the blue bowl with tuesday’s breakfast (i like it!).
    happy wednesday!

  3. Congrats on first this week :) I love your title!! I have been working on walking more too.

    • Thanks, don’t know how it happened. I was up at like 3am (couldn’t sleep) and the link wasn’t ready yet. Just kept checking back. I was surprised myself! I feel so much bette when I walk! Thanks for visiting, please stop by again!

  4. Good for you Fran! It feels good to get back to a healthy routine. Your Sunday dinner sounds great. :-)

  5. That omelette sounds so good! I think I know what I want for breakfast tomorrow.. :)

  6. Glad you’re back on track–and back on the road! And I’m all about having pre-cooked stuff in the fridge. It means you can have healthy food FAST! Because no way I’m waiting for quinoa to cook when hunger really hits ;D

  7. Your cottage cheese queso sounds awesome! I’ll definitely have to remember it the next time I’m craving some :)

  8. It must’ve felt great to get back walking – good for you!! Mmm love adding cottage cheese to meals!
