WIAW: not the norm

Let's not beat around the bush: they are predicting the BIGGEST SNOW STORM IN YEARS for, uhh, everywhere around the east coast it seems. Personally, I'm the in "I'll believe it when I see it" camp - I just don't have faith in our weather forecasters! But that doesn't mean I won't wear my pajamas inside out tonight, just in case.... (yes, I am a child).

Moving on. Happy WIAW! This link-up, hosted by Jenn, is one of my favorites - I really enjoy seeing the daily eats of other people (especially when people are honest about what they are eating - some days aren't perfect!). Yesterday was a little out of whack for me, and, as a result, the things I ate were not the norm for me. Take a look!

The day started out like normal, with coffee and a banana, followed by a mid-morning snack of yogurt. (Side note: has anyone else tried these Dannon Light & Fit Greek blends? I found them at Wal-mart over the weekend - this one is Raspberry Chocolate and it is downright decadent. They also had Strawberry Cheesecake, and it is also freakin' delicious. Try 'em if you find 'em!)

When lunch time rolled around, though, I just wasn't hungry. I don't know what was up, but that is almost never the case for me. I always want my lunch! Just couldn't do it yesterday, though, even though I had leftover baked spaghetti waiting in the fridge. Instead, I ate a cucumber-red onion-red wine vinegar salad that I'd thrown together, and some celery (with a side of ranch!) late in the afternoon. Veggies sounded ok, real lunch did not. Hmph. (And there's a preview of what's for lunch today... leftover leftovers? ha!)

By the time I got home, I was ready for dinner (phew) and knew I needed to eat before book club - otherwise I would be devouring all the snacks!! I ate some leftover pizza from the one we'd made on Monday night (and another side of ranch, duh) along with an un-pictured cup of tea because my throat was bothering me.

I didn't take any pictures at book club (because THAT is creepy), but our fab host-of-the-month, Stephanie, whipped up some yummy snacks for us, and I couldn't resist. While we chatted, I had some apples with a peanut butter dip (must get that recipe!) and some cranberry-rolled-goat cheese on Ritz. Just a few - my appetite still wasn't really there. Who am I?!

I rounded out the night with some red wine while watching the Olympics with C before bed... did anyone else see the Ice Dancing short programs last night? Or snowboarding? Poor Shaun White - the conditions on the half-pipe looked awful, and I felt really bad for the guys who weren't doing so well. But what can ya do?!

So there ya have it - my not-so-usual eats for a Tuesday. Back to regularly-scheduled programing today, I think!

So tell me...
  • Are you ready for snow? Anyone else have a snow tradition (like inside-out pajamas) or is that just us NoVa people?...
  • Do you make yourself eat when you're not hungry? I try not to, but also know I need to stick with some routine or else I'm HANGRY later!
  • Are you watching the Olympics? What's your favorite winter sport?

I'm stocking up for Snowpacalypse 34 of this winter by buying wine and frozen pizza. It's all about planning, right?

Bahaha, I totally took pictures at book club. Because I'm THAT blogger. Whoops! But looks like a great day of eats! I'm sorry that your stomach felt off though! I hate days like that! Also, I'M SO EXCITED FOR SNOW! AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I need a snow day in my life, ASAP.

Hahaha welllll you were the host, so it was ok for you to take pictures of the food you brought... a little more awkward if I took pics of the food you brought!! ;) I hope you get a snow day!!

I'm over the snow!! Mostly because I had to cancel my baby shower over it, and if it snows again this weekend I'm probably not going to get to have one!! :/

Dannon Light and Fit Greek is probably my favorite yogurt. Love those! And I'm loving that pizza, too! =)

I couldn't believe Shaun White!!! And the ice dancing is amazing. I'm pretty obsessed with figure skating (at least during the Olympics), I just can't believe the things they do! I hope your appetite is back to normal. I'm with you, I try not to force myself to eat if I'm not hungry, but if I know I won't be able to eat later I will force it to avoid the hangry monster!
