Good Wednesday morning to you!
*totally typed 1/22/13 into the title the first time. Sheesh! *
The past two days have been busy around here. I’m definitely more than ready for things to slow down. I feel like ever since the Holidays, things haven’t quuuiiiiitte gotten back to normal. I’m ready to finally get back into the swing of things and restore some “normalcy” to my routine.
Since things have been busy, you’re going to see some “repeat offenders” in the WIAW line-up. Soooo…let’s hop to it.
Breakfast – 7:40 ish
Breakfast was, yet again, oats topped with berries. My stomach has been off lately, so I’m having a hard time wanting to switch things up in the food department. I know that oats will treat me kindly in the mornings, so I’m not willing to risk being uncomfortable all morning. Classroom full of 8 year-olds + an uncomfy tummy does NOT = a happy me! 😉
Lunch – 12:11
Lunch at school is from 12:11 – 12:34. How’s that for exact?! Lunch looks usually looks like this most days.
Hummus, turkey, lettuce, and tomato topped whole wheat bagel, served with mini-triscuits (cause minis are better), and a dark chocolate and oats Kashi cookie.
Snack – 3:45
Chocolate Drizzled Coconut Luna Bar
Always delicious! Obviously, I’m not sick of them yet! But, I’m open to change. So, do you have any suggestions?!
What are some snack bars that you like? They need to be easy to grab and eat on the go. I never know where I’m going to be in the afternoons, so something I can stash in my purse is necessary.
Dinner – 7:45pm
Gees…any suggestions for scooting my dinner time earlier?! Since lunch time is set, I usually eat my snack some time after school. By the time I get kids out of my room, get things back in order and ready for the next day, it’s usually about 3:30 or 3:45 by the time I can eat something quickly. Unfortunately, that puts me not really too hungry for dinner until 7-7:30 ish.
Being that my disordered eating still likes to creep in, it’s hard for me to eat when I’m not hungry. I have a hard time justifying eating dinner if I don’t feel a tad hungry. Any tips you have regarding hunger and such are happily welcomed!
Anyway, take a look at this pasta I whipped up! It’s called Italian Wonder-Pot, and it’s seriously the easiest, quickest thing to put together. Plus, it’s delicious!
Snack – 9:30
About 1/2 C. of trail mix including: almonds, cashews, and craisins. Mmmm!
Unfortunately, since dinner is late, that puts my nighttime snack late too. I know I need to eat a little something before bed so I get enough calories in for the day. Sadly though, by the time I eat something and get in bed, it’s usually anytime from 10-11pm. Obviously, with a 5am wake-up, this is not working too well, to put it lightly.
So, again…suggestions welcomed! 🙂
I hope you have a WONDERFUL Wednesday! I’ve got an appointment with my therapist and nutritionist this afternoon after school. I always feel so encouraged after meeting with them.
Suggestions about moving my eating times earlier?!
What is a “repeat offender” that often pops up in your meals/snacks?
