WIAW 12/19: Following the Rules

Posted by Lauren

*If you are new to the blog through WIAW, please check out our About page!*

This time I will do WIAW the traditional way. I’m sure Nicole will appreciate the fact that I am finally following the rules. Believe it or not, I’m not the rule breaker of the family! Head over to Jenn’s blog for many more WIAW participants! This is #100!

Breakfast at home – 8:10 am
Oat bran and banana. Classic.


Lunch at work – 12:00 pm
My Taco Tuesday steak salad… No tortilla chips this week!


Snack #1 – 2:30 pm
Fuji apple from the fruit bowl… I’ve been choosing that over the candy bowl lately. Score!


Snack #2 – 4:00 pm
Strawberry Nutrigrain bar


OK. Cookie intermission… During my lunch break I transformed into Cookie Santa and delivered two plates of leftover cookies from my Holiday Cookie Swap.


One plate went to Kyle and one plate went to my mom. I took advantage of the fact that both of them work within 5 minutes of me!


Check out her new glasses! Foxy.

Snack #3 – 4:30 and 6:00 pm
Three rugelach cookies (ex. twisty ones in the top left of the cookie plate photo). We’ve got an entire plate in our office and I finally dug in.

Dinner at work – 6:30 pm
Leftover roast, brussels sprouts, and potatoes from Saturday’s slow cooker dinner.


Dessert – 9 pm onwards…
Best-ever chocolate-covered raisins from Kim! I broke into Kyle’s Christmas stash… Seriously the best!


Before I went to Kyle’s, I got in a quality run at the gym. I haven’t done the 5-4-3-2-1 treadmill run in a while so I figured I’d try that! 3 rounds later my “recovery run” was finished!


p.s. yesterday I watched the series finale of Gossip Girl LIVE at the gym. I turned the volume up, pedaled on the stationary bike, and did a few random weight machine exercises.

I’ve watched this show since the beginning and I really loved their final episode. Gossip Guy? Who would have guessed? I suppose he is a “writer.”

Question: What’s your favorite chocolate-covered snack?

I love these power berries from Trader Joe’s. So addictive!

    You know most things are made better when they are covered in chocolate :) Or at least dark chocolate. I TOTALLY love TJ’s power berries. I am also a fan of the chocolate covered pretzels (perfect combo of salty/sweet) or even better, Tj has a chocolate covered PB pretzel. Mmmmmm. Might as well.

    I also love Gossip Girl and was quite happy with the finale. I would have never guessed that Gossip Girl was actually a guy. I always thought it was Dorota!!

    Those TJ powerberries are the best…I don’t even have a TJ’s in Dallas yet, but when I’m in California, I go to TJ’s just for the powerberries.
