WIAW - Tuesday

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

This is the fourth week of the diet and probably the most challenging one so far. I will give you all the details at the end of the week! Tuesday, was the day I remembered to take pictures and a pretty good day. I can't call it a perfect day because I ended up only having 4 meals. I forgot to eat something before I ran to the grocery store and then by the time I finished, I had to run right to preschool to pick up my son, so by the time I got home it was lunch time. It threw off my whole day and I could only fit in 4 meals.


Low Carb Day

Meal #1
These don't look that exciting, and I guess they really aren't that exciting at all, but they aren't bad! The bonus is they are super quick and require no prep, I just warm them up in the microwave if I want to, but I have also eaten them cold and that has worked in a pinch as well!
I made the protein pancake recipe up and I may still tweak it a bit, but I have Whole Wheat pancake mix that I added a scoop of protein powder to, used almond milk instead of regular milk, egg whites instead of whole eggs. I left out the oil it called for, but added vanilla and cinnamon.
My husband really didn't care for them, they have a little bit of a nutty texture, which I like, but he does not! I think it would be really good with some syrup, but of course I have to skip that! I feel like it wasn't a total fail so I will keep working on making the perfect protein pancake :)
Meal #2
Skipped Meal
Meal #3

Leftover Chicken with Molasses Bacon Seasoning used as a rub before grilled. Oh Yum! I could eat this chicken every day...and actually, pretty much have since we made it!
I added a handful of almonds for my fat. I threw this meal (if you can call it that) together as soon as I walked in the door this afternoon. I needed to get food in quick. Although it is an interesting, it fulfills all the requirements for a low carb meal!
 Meal #4
Vanilla Cream Protein shake with a scoop of Natural Peanut Butter in it. My favorite!
Meal #5

Healthy Baked Meatballs on a salad with Olive oil and Balsamic. These meatballs were so good! I realized after I was making them, that they had oats in them so maybe I shouldn't have eaten them today on my low carb day, but it was what I had planned and there wasn't too many oats in them, so I went with it anyway. I am glad I did because I really enjoyed the meatballs on the salad!
I ate a few extra meatballs to make up for the loss of calories from meal #2, hopefully this meal skip doesn't have a huge effect on my weight loss for the day! We will see on Friday when I get on the scale and maybe try on the jeans! Want to see my Progress?? Click here

I would love for you to follow me!  

Linking up with Jenn at Peas and Crayons!
Have a great Wednesday!


  1. I love doing meatballs in the crock pot with some sauce.

    1. I used to do that all the time, I will have to remember to try it again! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi! Coming over here from the link party :) I run a low carb (specifically, keto) blog, so my interest was piqued when I saw that you eat low carb too! Or do you just do it on Wednesdays? What led you to low carb? I'm definitely going to creep around on your blog some, but I wanted to say hello! :)

    1. Hi! I am doing carb cycling, so that is alternating between high and low carb days! I do 3 low carb and 3 high carb days and one reward day! I really prefer my low carb days though actually! I will head over to your blog and check it out!


I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
