12-12-12, A NOT WIAW

HEY! Happy 12-12-12!! Last triple number date until 2101!

Also, happy Wednesday! This is when I usually give you a What I Ate Wednesday post, but I haven’t really been participating in WIAW lately. I think it’s because my meals are pretty much the same all the time. Breakfast is always egg, oats, or yogurt. Lunch is always chicken or leftovers. Afternoon snacks are always protein bars. And even dinner is almost always a protein and two veggies. Take last night’s dinner for example.


Seared pork chops (in the cast iron skillet!), baked okra, and roasted green beans. It was delicious, but not very different from what I normally cook up. I’m going to have to start researching more recipes so I can spice it up in the kitchen a little. 😉

Anyway, I think I’m starting to get used to my 4:30 wake up call every morning. I was out of bed as soon as my alarm went off ready to fix some coffee before heading off to the gym. Go me! Today I did workout A from Best Body Boot Camp. It was an upper body tabata workout that had my arms feelin’ a lot like jello at the end. My favorite moves of the workout were the kettlebell halos and dumbbell scaptions. I love any move that works my shoulders!

My boring breakfast was another omelet. Shocker.


On the Christmas plate. Double shocker.

I packed leftovers from last night for lunch and added a Chobani for a little sweetness. It’s like a lunch dessert.

Old picture, obviously.

After work, what do ya know? I came home and grabbed a Quest bar!

Quest Bar Strawberry Cheesecake

This flavor isn’t my favorite, but it’s still good! Especially warmed up in the microwave.

Since it’s Wednesday, we have church tonight. I’ve said before on here that I always take my dinner to church because I get there at 5:00 and don’t leave until after choir practice around 8:30/8:45. So tonight, I’m packing a bag of frozen veggies that I can cook in the microwave and adding apple slices with a little PB2 for dipping.


Let’s talk about something interesting now, shall we?

How about today’s blog challenge.


Today is day 12 which is “Wrapping Paper or Gift Bags?”

I’m definitely going to go with wrapping paper! Gift bags are easy and all, but wrapping paper is so much prettier! And there’s nothing better than getting to tear into a present instead of neatly pulling it out of a boring bag. 😉

What do you guys thinks? Wrapping paper or gift bags??
