WIAW: Making Healthier Restaurant Choices

I’ve been doing a lot better with my sugar intake this week! It’s been a little tough but I’m feeling a lot better(less bloating and stomach issues) so it’s definitely worth it. I have been pretty busy with work lately, which translates into a lot of eating out, but I’ve been trying to make healthier choices.

Peas and Crayons

Here are my eats from yesterday:

Power breakfast egg bowl with steak and avocado from Panera Bread. Unfortunately this was kind of terrible. I didn’t hate it but the steak was cold…so it felt weird eating it with hot eggs. Maybe just too many textures for me or something?


Grilled chicken Cobb salad from Le Pain Quotidien. This is a staple for me, I just love it!


A Quest bar and iced tea for snack time. I think I’m starting to get addicted to these bars!

Dinner at home: roasted chicken legs, broccoli and a random hard boiled egg.

Cherries for dessert!

I also had a few(too many) cups of coffee that managed to escape being photographed throughout the day.

Thanks to Jen for hosting WIAW!


The Exercise Equivalent of a Cheeseburger?

I read an interesting article in the WSJ today about the dangers of endurance exercise.

Basically it's saying that people who run over 30 miles a week have an “increased vulnerability to atrial fibrillation and coronary-artery plaque” versus non-extreme runners.

Seeing as how I can barely motivate myself to run five miles a week, it doesn't really apply to me, but it's definitely worth reading.
