What I Ate Wednesday #2

This past week started off so good.  I was determined after seeing a -6lb drop on my weigh-in last Wednesday.  I made it through Thanksgiving STRONG. UNWAVERING in the face of delicious food!!

And then Friday happened.  I fell and twisted my ankle into a pretzel during a simple 2 mile race (but really it's the muscles thru my foot that hurt).  The next day my whole foot was swollen up that I could hardly even walk.  Let's just say it's been a pitiful week for me.  There is no question that I'm an emotional eater.  When I get injured and can't run, I get crabby, frustrated and weak.  I turn to food.  ugh.

I didn't track my food in the absence of exercise for 3 days... and boy, I can feel it.  I'm not even facing the scale today.  Will have to wait until next Wednesday for an update.

But I brought myself back to reality yesterday.  Here's what I ate...

BREAKFAST: Vegetable Quiche Cups
These are an awesome punch of protein in the morning!  I make a big batch at once, and then freeze.  Only 50 calories each, they are a yummy and healthy way to start the morning.

1 pkg 10oz chopped spinach (thawed)
 7 eggs
3/4 c. shredded cheese
1/4 c. chopped green peppers
1/4 c. chopped red peppers
4-6 drops of hot sauce
1/4 c. onion
3 slices turkey bacon (cooked and crumbled).  
Cook spinach for 2 minutes in microwave and drain excess liquid.  Mix all ingredients into a bowl.  Scoop mixture into foil baking cups, sprayed lightly first with cooking spray.  Bake 350˙ for 20 minutes.  May freeze and reheat in microwave.

LUNCH: Taco Salad

SNACKS: banana, apple and granola bar

DINNER: Smart Ones meal, and I added in more broccoli and chicken.

It really wasn't even that good, but I was sulking as I iced my foot...
