Chocolaty WIAW

Yesterday was full of ups and downs.  I had a bad run (more like, a bad attempt at a run), but I had a good full-body strength workout.  More on that tomorrow.  I had an awful breakfast, but I had an amazing dinner.  I guess it all evens out in the end, right?

First Breakfast – pre-gym peanut butter


Second Breakfast – post-gym attempt at a blueberry protein pancake*


*I just purchased Sunwarrior vegan protein, but I can hardly stomach the stuff.  I tried it in my beloved protein oats on Monday.  Ick.  I then tried it in the protein pancake.  Major Ick.  The irony is not lost on me – I realize I mixed 2 egg whites with my vegan protein powder to make the pancake.  It was still a flop.

Snack – a handful of almonds

Lunch – leftover turkey with green beans with sliced almonds (Who knew turkey could be so good even without gravy???)


Snack – finished up the leftover Halloween candy and later finished half a pear (which was originally supposed to go in my Stonyfield plain Greek yogurt… whooops.  chocolate > yogurt)


Dinner – veg chili, soooooooo good!


Snack – Nestle instant hot cocoa (totally unplanned, but when all the other girls at Bible study were sipping on theirs, I couldn’t help myself.  This chocolaty WIAW was totally worth it!)  Thanks to Jenn for hosting the WIAW party.

  • Have you gotten into Christmas candy yet?
  • Still got Halloween candy kicking around the house?

  1. i need to start implementing this pre-workout peanut butter thing. a peanut butter spoon is the best.

  2. I can’t believe you still have Halloween candy- impressive! Mine was gone within the week!

  3. Wait… you somehow made halloween candy last that long? Do tell your secrets…

    I actually just bought some Hershey chocolate mint candy canes yesterday. I’m thinking they will be perfect in hot chocolate, or topped on some frozen vanilla yogurt 🙂 Maybe even in some sort of smoothie???

  5. Oh no! I can’t believe you’re not a fan of Sunwarrior. It’s my favorite protein powder ever. Is it plain? I have never had the plain. But I think the vanilla is fantastic. I’ve used it in baking, smoothies and oats. I’m bummed your experience hasn’t been good. 🙁

  6. mmm chocolate 🙂 I need to get some hot coco now!

  7. I personally can’t stand gravy. Lol. So that plain turkey is right up my alley! 🙂

    Sorry for the pancake flop! I use my vegan protein powder to make microwave protein breads… pumpkin, banana, etc. SUPER EASY! And since you can have eggs I bet they’d be even BETTER!

  8. Isn’t it discouraging when eats don’t live up to your expectations? I want everything I eat to be awesome! We still have a mountain of Halloween candy left…I need it to move onto another home please & thank you!

  9. My Halloween candy is actually all gone, but the Christmas candy is out in full force 😀 Candy canes and kisses? Yesssss! And I can’t wait to break into my advent calendar. Whyyyy does it still have to be 2 days until December? 🙁

  10. I think Thanksgiving leftovers get better everyday! Happy WIAW:)

  11. I wasnt a big gravy fan until my sister’s husbands mom made it at our Thanksgiving… WOWSERS. It was soooooo good.

    xoxo from Trinidad..

    p.s. I want you to do By the Numbers…

  12. I don’t have any Christmas candy yet, but I’m on a mission to track down Hershey’s peppermint kisses. Those are the best!

  13. I LOVE sunwarrior. You can mail me the rest of your bag if you’re going to toss it 🙂
