WIAW: Old, Married Lady Edition

28 Nov

Well I’m definitely glad to know that I’m not the only one who occasionally has trouble motivating themselves into healthy habits at the gym. Even though we all know that it is good for us!

Also, shout-out to Meagan and Adam, this adorable couple we met on our honeymoon! Meagan find my blog today and sent me a super sweet email. So HI MEAGAN!

It has definitely been a long day for me though – still trying to get into the normal routine of commuting, work, working out and spending time with the husband (and Laney of course). Only 3 out of 4 happened today… the gym had to take a back-seat to grocery shopping and house arranging.

But there is one habit that I am VERY excited to get back in to: What I Ate Wednesday!

That’s right, it’s my first WIAW since Sept 19! How crazy is that??

For those of you who have NO idea what I’m talking about, check out the lovely Jenn’s blog at Peas & Crayons for more of an explanation of this blog world phenomenon and what it stands for. 

This particular month is all about falling into good habits. How appropriate is that, given that right now I’m working to find a new normal in all of this craziness? Food included.


I’m not going to lie guys, I’ve gotten into a real breakfast funk. I was on an oatmeal kick for like a month, and for whatever reason I’ve gotten bored of it. But it’s just not really yogurt and granola weather, my other usual go to. Hence my funk. And enter cereal – my archnemesis. I seriously cannot keep my paws off the stuff! Breakfast this morning was some life cereal with almond-coconut milk and some frozen strawberries.



I have also not quite gotten into a lunch pattern yet since I’m now sharing my fridge. When I lived by myself, I used to eat leftovers for lunch 95% of the time, because I always made multiple servings when I cooked. But now I have someone else to share the fridge with, so leftovers aren’t as common. And he’s a sandwich-for-lunch kind of guy, which I am just not used to. Which brings us to today’s lunch – a frozen burrito. Totally lacking in veggies, but it got the job done.



For a snack I had a clementine – another husband staple. I always found it weird to eat citrus in the winter, but hey, if they are in the fridge, they are fair game! No picture though, as I devoured it while helping a co-worker with a problem.


Chris and I decided to make use of the rest of our chili leftovers (see, this is where all my leftovers go!) to make dinner. I topped half a sweet potato with chili, and paired it with a salad to make up for my total lack of veggies today. Pretty sure I grossed Chris out with the chili + sweet potato combo, but I swear it was delicious! A little sweet, a little savory/salty. Awesome! Please tell me I’m not the only one who likes savory sweet potatoes?




Ok, I actually had dessert before dinner… I made a run by Costco to pick up a few things, and ended up getting a churro to split with Chris. They are just too good to pass up! I tried to take a picture, but it was just too dark in my car. All you could see was my eyeballs. Just slightly creepy…


Old Lady Status

Speaking of Costco, I think I officially joined the ranks of married ladies today.  It wasn’t the ceremony or the rings or the honeymoon that made it official. It was going to Costco and leaving with $150 of household items.


Yup, you know you’re jealous of my vaccuum, toilet paper, lysol wipes and swiffer sweeper clothes. It was only the bag of frozen fruit that saved me from total Old Lady-ness. Pretty sure the cashier judged me a little . Like when you go into the store to buy tampons and midol, and add a loaf of bread just so it looks like you’re on a normal grocery run. Only I do that? Great, now you’re judging me too.

Well that’s all I have for you tonight! Happy Wednesday!

So tell me: What did you eat today? Do you like savory sweet potatoes or are you a butter and cinnamon person like Chris?

      I’m glad it’s not just me. Chris kept calling me weird.
