Talk about a full body workout!

While shopping, I took some photos!! 100_2773 100_2774 Lunch was QUICK & deliciously light. I needed some protein, but was REALLY short on time.

Chicken (+BBQ sauce) & fresh cantaloupe. Plus un-pictured nibbles!! 100_2772 100_2768 100_2769 100_2770 100_2771 With such a LIGHT lunch, I was STARVING by the time I got home from shopping.

Enter: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabar.

Oh. my. goshhhhhh. New favorite! SERIOUSLY tasted like a cookie. 100_2778 100_2783

100_2785  100_2787

100_2788 Plus an apple, MORE cantaloupe, and trail mix.

I have eaten TWO cantaloupes in around…4 days. Oh yes I haveee!

Dinner was INCREDIBLE!

Chicken burgers topped with mozzarella, ketchup, tomato, lettuce…on a whole wheat bun. Served with a side of grilled veggies (red potatoes, carrots, onions, & asparagus!) 349_2803Heaven. on. a. plate.

Tonight I went swimming with the fam & the boy! It was a blast, but I worked up an appetite. (I also had some of the boy’s brownie & ice cream!)

349_2808 349_2804 349_2805 349_2806 349_2807 ***PLEASE know that some days I eat WAY more than this, and some I don’t. I try my best to listen to my hunger cues. Basically, I am constantly eating 😀 My mom says I’m almost like a teenage guy because I’m always snacking!***

I am all about eating after dinner, too. I am not one of those people who is all about “No Eating After 7 pm or whatever.” NO WAY. I snack a lot at night. a lot. Read: the spoon always finds its way into the PB jar 😀

Hope you all enjoyed this! I’ll do this every once in a while! My daily eats are rarely the same! I did get creative in the kitchen yesterday and I’ll share that with you in my next post!

❤ jess

It’s cool to see you track your food throughout the day, but I also love that you say you do a lot of snacking. I mean, who really doesn’t?

Plus, those look like some serious good eats. I actually enjoyed a Greek yogurt mess of my own this morning!

9 08 2010

I also have to eat post dinner…usually tea and chocolate are my weaknesses!

12 08 2010

Mmmm, I love cantaloupe! One of my favorite fruits!

I’m always snacking, too! I tend to be a grazer, so I’ll eat a little, then stop, then eat a little, then stop. It’s also probably because I’m such a slow eater, so it takes me forever to eat a whole meal all at once. And I always eat something after dinner – whether it’s just a snack like yogurt or a dessert like ice cream! What can I say, I like to eat! 🙂

Whew, you go girl! I’m glad you’re able to listen to hunger cues and eat more or less, depending on what you need (and want)! Honestly, my eating has been all over the place lately… it’s like I’ve swung from restricting to the opposite extreme. I don’t know when “enough is enough,” and I usually end up super-full and uncomfortable. Ugh, I’m ready for everything to balance out!

10 08 2010

Your meals look great! Especially your yogurt mess. I am like you, I am a snacker and do it all through the night. I almost prefer to eat snacks throughout the day rather than square meals.

10 08 2010

yummy eats!!! that chicken looks awesome!!!!!! and I’m jealous you have tried that Lara!!!!! Im on the look out for the new flavahs!!!!!!

i can’t eat after 7pm. for whatever reason my body just doesn’t digest and i can’t sleep. hope that’s not a sign i’m getting old! :0

12 08 2010

great eats. I love all the PB and yogurt messes. I think I have 7 jars of different nut butters in my fridge. My husband and i keep a spoon out just so we can take turns snacking on them at night. haha. True love baby! 🙂
