My EATS for the day were let’s say a bit off my usual routine! 


I had the above blueberry muffin and a cup of coffee for breakfast at a meeting we had yesterday morning at work.  I was craving a blueberry muffin after the “blueberry coffee” I had the other day so I was happy to see it available before the meeting. 


Lunch was not had until after 2pm because after my morning meeting some training & review occurred and we were not finisehd until that time.  

I was officially STARVING at that point and quickly whipped together whatever I could find in the fridge at work…….which wasn’t much but I managed to put together a toasted flat whole-grain bagel that I topped with peanut butter & 1/2 a sliced banana and then I heated up some frozen veggies

Dinner wasn’t really a “meal” as I just stole a few pieces of the sweat & sour chicken and fried rice that was left over at my mom’s house while I was picking up my daughter after the Gym.  Then later at home I had a small glass of chocolate milk

I usually don’t like to eat too late so on most Thursday’s, which is my late gym night I typically don’t eat a regular meal or too much. 

How do you feel about eating late, do you or don’t you? 

I will make exceptions if I am staying up late but typically I try not to do it.

    I’ll eat late if I feel really hungry. Usually something protein based helps tame the hunger, in the form of yogurt or a glass of milk. 😀

    Great job on your workout! 😀

      I munch on Peanuts a lot if “hunger” strikes me at night time and usually after a few handfuls I am good. Thank you. =)
