What I Ate Wednesday #6 - Too Many Carbs!

Carbs - they are nasty little buggers aren't they?

I don't know what came over me today, but I was craving them like crazy. Fortunately I stayed within my allocated WW points; but now I'm left feeling full, blah and bloated.

Here were my eats for the day:

Breakfast, 8 Points+ (7:30 am):

  • Mango smoothie; 1 cup skim milk, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup frozen mango, 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 banana
  • Tea
  • Vitamins 

I think breakfast was my downfall today, I normally would add protein powder but I was out of vanilla whey. When I don't start my day with a good dose of protein I tend to get really hungry come noon and in the evening.

Snack, 2 Points+ (10:00 am):
  • Fibre 1 - 100 calorie peanut butter bar
  • Banana

Lunch,  11 Points+ (12:30 pm):
  • Subway 6 Inch Ham sub with all the fixin's.

This is always my treat meal after each weekly weigh-in.

Snack, 2 Points+ (3:00 pm):
  • Oiko's Greek Yogurt - Cherry 0%

Dinner, 13 Points+ (6:00 pm):

So to satisfy my taste buds, I finished off my dinner with:
  • 4 triscuits
  • 1 piece light laughing cow cheese
  • Kellogg's Crisp Bar

Total Points+ used: 36

You live and learn while on this plan. All foods are not created equal. Though you may stay on track and stay within your daily points, you can still make food choices that may not work for you and your body. That's exactly what I did today and I can't wait until tomorrow to make better choices.

On that note, let me leave you with this quote which I find most inspiring on days like this:

Have a great evening everyone!


  1. Aw, too bad about the sweet corn and shrimp cakes... they sound like they would be great! I made the quinoa-chicken burgers last night (changed seasonings a bit, but used the base) and they came out GREAT! I am always looking for TASTY and HEALTHY recipes - which is not always easy! I was always overweight... majorly overweight. ( 5 foot 2 and 210lbs at my heaviest) I'm 130 now which is still heavier than I would like but I feel good, so maintenance is my main priority instead of loss. (which is a very odd transition!)

    1. That is an AMAZING accomplishment MrsM! Wow! I agree, the maintenance thing is a hard transition. I personally found it harder to do than to lose. Finding the right recipes to keep you going and to keep you intersted in healthy living is key.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the burgs - I was so happy with how hardy they were, delicious too.

      Again, congrats on your amazing loss. I'm so happy for you!
