Weeeee Wednesday.

This is a long work week for me, so I honestly am so excited it’s Wednesday, because Thursday is technically my Friday this week.

Wednesday’s are also fun because the lovely Jenn gives us the chance to share our eats with each other for What I Ate Wednesday.

These past few weeks have been bitter sweet for me.

I’m going to get a bit serious for a few seconds so bear with me. You all know I like to keep it light and fun around here, but I also like to be honest. I never pretend to have a perfect life and I think it’s helpful to share my struggles, because we all have them.

I’m pretty open about being in a weight gain stage however I never really talk about my progress.

Well for the past few months, I had been doing great. But the last couple of weeks, well not so great. I lost some weight, probably just from being extremely busy at work, but lost none the less. Let’s just say my nutritionist was not so happy with me.

I know she’s right. I know I need to gain, but seriously sometimes there is only so much food one person can eat. Matt and I had a heart to heart and we became very committed to getting me back on track and gaining again.

Which is why if you follow me on Instagram you saw a lot of this.

Fro-yo, but with intense toppings.

Things also got more serious with this.

Real dessert. Good ole Dairy Queen. My nutritionist literally told me I needed to eat a blizzard a day to add the amount of extra fat and calories I needed in order to gain. I wasn’t really complaining about that. However even for this ice cream loving girl, a blizzard everyday is a bit much.

So there were other ways I pushed.

Thankfully we had a few invitations with friends for meeting up for dinner so that helped with my needs for new, higher fat foods.

Matt had a friend who was visiting from out of town and they wanted to meet up for dinner, so we met at one of our favorite restaurants True Food.

It was a gorgeous night out and there was a bit of a wait, so we hung out on their patio and since it just happened to be National Margarita Day, we all got a margarita to celebrate.

By time we got a table we were all starving and ordered the hummus as an appetizer. I wish I had a picture to share, but it was pretty much demolished after being set in front of us.

For dinner I chose my standard go to dish there. I really wanted to branch out and try something new, but since we hadn’t been there is a while I was really craving it.

I ordered the Brown Rice Teriyaki Bowl with Tofu.

It was amazing as usual.

Matt decided to try something new and ordered the Panang Curry.

I’m not a huge curry person, but I tried a piece of the chicken and it was pretty delicious.

After dinner, Matt insisted we get dessert.

There was a frozen yogurt place right by the restaurant so we went there. A picture was not taken because I was very full. Physically and emotionally. I know doing things like this is what I have and need to do, but it doesn’t mean it still doesn’t affect me mentally.

The next morning all I wanted to do was have a normal meal. A home made breakfast.

Matt…oh how I love and hate him sometimes.

He suggested we go out for breakfast.

After how I felt the night before, going out for my next meal was not what I wanted to do in the slightest.

But whenever I try and make excuses on why I shouldn’t or don’t want too, I always challenge it and just do it.

So out to breakfast we went.

We went to a local breakfast spot that we love. The Breakfast Club. It’s such a cute/hip little place that is only open for breakfast and lunch and is always busy. We love it because the restaurant has such an open/airy layout and the food is very fresh.

I ordered an omelet with broccoli, green peppers and onion. It came with fresh sliced tomatoes and a side of fruit and cottage cheese.

Matt ordered a breakfast burrito topped with chorizo queso. It also came with a side of home style potatoes and fruit.

And the kicker. I don’t know why, but I have been craving bacon lately.

So you know what I ordered?

BACON.

And it was de-lish.

So I may be having my ups and downs with this whole weight gain thing, but I know it is what I need to do to get healthy.

And if that means more blizzards and bacon, well let’s be honest. It could be worse.

Do you crave random foods?
