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!
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!!
