Thoughts from the weekend

1. When you buy Kashi Oatmeal in bulk off Amazon and then receive it in the mail, it really is like Christmas in June.

Image3. When you are overly prepared to go hiking (i.e. have slathered on sunscreen, put on your workout clothes and shoes, put on a hat, have your water bottle filled, taken the typical mirror picture of yourself,and have loaded your dog in the car), something will go wrong. Something to the tune of your car having a dead battery so that you can’t even back out of the driveway.

4. “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” is such a great movie. Even my parental units loved it.

Ryan Gosling. Enough Said.

5. I’ve realized that my annual family vacation to the Outer banks of North Carolina (a.k.a where pretty much every Nicholas Sparks novel takes place) is less than two weeks away!! Wait…what?! Can’t freaking wait.

6. This isn’t a thought, but I’ll leave you with pictures of some of my eats from the weekend as a parting gift. In no particular order…

My first(!!) What I Ate Wednesday

Lately, I have been craving peanut butter SO much. Like seriously, I eat it by the spoonful. I go through phases with my cravings, like one time I had like a 3 week span where I craved tortillas everyday (so weird), another time I craved eating frozen fruit every night which also lasted for a couple weeks, the same with Wheat bites cereal and countless others.

Enough about that, we have more important thing to do! It’s Wednesday! Wednesdays have always been my favorite day to read blogs. I seriously enjoy looking at what other people ate a little too much. Here goes my first WIAW:

Breakfast–a big bowl of Kashi original cereal and some All Bran cereal underneath (that you can’t see) with Almond Milk and a bowl of Fage Greek Yogurt.

Lunch— started off with a Red Delicious apple (my fave), cut into wedges using my nifty little gadget.Image

Then, I made myself a burrito on a whole wheat tortilla with Light Life Smart Ground Original Crumbles (a good option for protein if you’re a vegetarian, like me, or even if you’re not), swiss cheese, and some spinach.

Image

Lunch also consisted a glass of sun tea (or two), and a large salad with tomatoes, lettuce, shredded carrots, garbanzo beans, walnuts, and some balsamic vinagrete to top it off. ImageImage

Afternoon Snack(s)– 

An orange and a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter. (told you!)Image

Image

Dinner– was eaten super late (10:30 PM) because I went to go see the Hunger Games (finally!!!!) with a friend. It was so good, the movie and my dinner, that is 😉

This big bowl contained a pile of barley, Trader Joes’ Meatless Meatballs (I mashed them up and mixed them in), and a huge pile of stir-fry vegetables on top, which is pretty much all you can see in this picture.ImageHappy Wednesday, Everyone!!

Do you have any odd cravings? Do you let yourself give in to cravings?
