WIAW–Busy Summer Day

Happy Independence Day!!!  And What I Ate Wednesday, too!!

Yesterday was the first time I lifeguarded in approximately 3 summers.  And because of lifeguarding, I had a long day.  I woke up around 7, let the dogs out, headed to work at the computer center until 11:45, and then lifeguarded from 12 – 5.  Nothing like a nine hour work day in the summer!

Days like this require me to pack all of my food for the day.  Here’s what I packed and ate!



Morning coffee and Corn Flakes for breakfast!


Flax spiral pasta with some Italian dressing, black olives, and a sprinkling of cheese!  Followed by a pack of tuna!



Lifeguard time!


Afternoon snacks: fruit strip and a Luna fiber bar!


I was super tired after guarding and figured the easiest dinner was a Giant grocery store salad bar salad with every veggie, a little cheese, some chicken, and sunflower seeds on top. 


Evening snacks of an apple and honey roasted peanuts! YUM!

That’s all she wrote, folks! To check out what other people have been nomming on lately, head over to Jenn’s blog. Her weekly What I Ate Wednesday party is such a hit, and I lovely seeing what some other bloggers create in the kitchen!

Now, it’s time for me to celebrate the holiday with Travis.  Nothing really planned, and I am totally ok with that!

Have any special holiday plans?

  3. I love the salad bar at Giant; perfect when I’m in a time crunch!

    Do you like the Luna fiber bars? I’ve heard good things, so I’m thinking of picking them up! I hate buying bars if I’m not 100% confident I’ll like them because otherwise they’ll just sit, un-eaten!

  4. Looks like an awesome day!! Have a happy fourth of july 🙂
