WIAW #52: Two Days of Meals

It's funny how I read Annette's about motherhood and fitness being rewarding because of the times of struggle.  Baby Fish had a bit of a rough day yesterday between spitting up a lot, having an accident or two, not napping for more than an hour or so, and falling still going to bed around 11.
Yesterday wasn't all bad--we had a great walk at the park, where she started getting fussy but soothed herself to sleep.  She also slept until 11 am, so I was able to get some organizing done in our bedroom!
I love her very much, and I'm definitely hoping today will be one of the great-all-around days :)  Mainly because I have a lot I need to get done around the house today in preparation for my parents coming to visit this weekend!  I'm looking forward to having them and showing them around our new town.  Plus, it'll be the first time my dad meets Baby Fish.  I can't wait!

Ok, enough about that...let's get on to a favorite blogging tradition!

For this week's WIAW, I wanted to show you two full days' worth of meals.  However, I forgot to take pictures of dinners both days, as well as some of my snacks.  So, I will share what I ate on Monday and Tuesday, posting the pictures that I do have! 

As always, thanks to Jenn for starting the WIAW fun and for the link-up!

Monday's Breakfast
I made some oatmeal and added a spoonful of peanut butter for some extra staying power.

Monday's Lunch

A peanut butter and jelly sandwich, grapes, some Blackberry Chobani, and baby carrots.  Pretty well-balanced lunch!

Monday's Afternoon Snack #1
I had a bowl of Cookies 'n Cream ice cream.  Yummy!!

Monday's Afternoon Snack #2

Nature Box Raspberry Figgy Bar.  Pretty much a Fig Newton, but they are whole wheat!

Monday's Dinner
We ate a Chicken Helper Cheddar Broccoli meal.  I added another bag of frozen broccoli to up the veggies!

Monday's Evening Snack
I had another bowl of ice cream.  When that stuff is in the house, I just can't resist it!

Tuesday's Breakfast
I had a bowl of Special K Protein Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crunch (I restocked at the store on Monday).

Tuesday's Mid-Morning Snack

Nature Valley Greek Protein Bar.  These are a new flavor of the protein bars we normally have on hand, so I decided to try them out.  I really liked it!

Tuesday's Lunch

Back to salads at lunch!  Spinach, tomato, onion, cucumber, and an avocado.  I had a Chobani Pineapple yogurt on the side.

Tuesday's Afternoon Snack
Another bowl of ice cream.  Good news is I finished off the carton!

Tuesday's Dinner
I made jambalaya in the Crock Pot.  This recipe is so good and makes so much!  We had another couple over for dinner and still have enough for two more meals.


  1. What a delicious day of eats, That jambalaya looks so good, I'll need to add it to my to make list!

    Thanks for linking up, Happy WIAW!

    1. Definitely try that recipe out. It is so tasty!!

  2. I LOVE those Figgy Bars! Fig Newtons were my favorite as a kid and these definitely satisfy the craving!

    1. Oh yes, I feel like they're more healthy just because they are whole wheat :)
