Another Wednesday, already? Sheesh. That went fast.
AAaaaaarreee youuuu reaaaddddyyyyyy for another WIAW post? (For the newcomers, WIAW is my way of trying to turn What I Ate Wednesday into a cool thing. Acronyms clearly do that.)
This morning I packed up all my goodies for the day in my handy, dandy Pyrex set (Best. Christmas. Present. Ever.). I’m such a good little commuter.
And then I stopped at Sbux, like a bad little commuter. Try not to be too jealous of my highlighter collection.
Breakfast was a bowl of berries.
A little while later, I made myself a cup of peppermint tea. My office building seems to think it’s 90 degrees outside, therefore requiring air conditioning, therefore requiring me keeping my hands wrapped around a hot mug all morning.
Not enough water today – just one bottle! Tsk tsk.
I was pretty hungry around 12:00, so I popped my edamame in the microwave (I buy them frozen) for my pre-lunch/snack. Pre-lunch? Who says that.
My morning/afternoon got a little wacky with meetings so I wasn’t able to eat my lunch until around 2:00. I have been making an effort recently to slow down when I eat, and chew-chew-chew instead of chew-swallow, but that wasn’t happening today. I had back-to-back-to-back meetings and I didn’t have too much time to eat like a civilized person. But what I did taste was delicious!
In the mix went field greens, carrots, peppers, mushrooms, tempeh, and chives.
And then around 5:30 I had a glass of OJ.
After work, I stopped at a photography store downtown to check out a camera I’ve been thinking about buying. I asked a few questions, longingly stared at the pretty tech gadgets, and walked away empty handed. I’m the kind of person who needs to research, make sure I’m buying precisely what I want/need, go back research some more, sleep on it, and then I’ll think about making the purchase. Definitely not an impulse buyer. Gum? Sure. Fancy cameras? Nu’uh.
I came home and considered going for a run, but opted for a quick yoga session instead. Before yoga, I tried one of these samples I picked up at the race expo.
Dinner was a jam-packed veggie plate. I think I eat too many sweet potatoes.
Aaand closed the day down with some dessert.
Beer on a school night. I’m wild!
That’s all folks. There was definitely a few handfuls of unpictured Cheez-its that I inhaled as my food cooked. Obviously my
dinner day wouldn’t have been complete without them.
Question: When buying big ticket items, do you tend to sit on the decision, or just bite the bullet?
