Happy Wednesday Friends!
Well life surely is never dull in my world. When so many strange events happen to you one after another, you can only ask yourself what am I doing wrong in life? Or am I doing so much right that this is my payback? What lesson should I be learning from this? Do I need to rethink my path life and change everything I’m doing? You hear about people going through mid life crises all the time, but you never believe they really happen in life until they happen to you.
After a series of crazy events last week and many ups and downs this past year, I thought for certain I’d crawl into the fetal position and meltdown. Surprisingly, I didn’t because in those hard moments, you realize how very strong you are & somehow find the strength to push through. As I reflected on the aftermath of the car accident, I realized something big about myself. I’m no longer an emotional eater.

In the past when something bad happened, it was my normal to reach for a bag of chips or tub of ice cream for support. But I don’t do that anymore and it wasn’t until last week that I realized this about myself. I’ve conquered emotional eating. Something I’ve battled with since I was a kid. Realizing this accomplishment made all the worry of the past week seem small. It’s incredible how a bad situation can help you recognize something positive about yourself. All that said. My life still really needs that degaussing.
Now let’s see what I ate and it wasn’t a bag of chips! If you’re new to Skinny Fitalicious, What I Ate Wednesday is a post I do every week showcasing my meals from one day. It’s fun to see what other people eat in a day. It’s also great motivation for me to eat balanced and create more delicious recipes!
Breakfast. Zucchini red pepper frittata. All I can say is you will die.
Protein pancakes with chocolate NuttZo. Have you ever melted nut butter on a pancake? OMG…so good! PS use my special code olson15 for 15% off your online NuttZo order.
Lunch. Kale salad with steamed broccoli, tuna and homemade salsa. I also realized last week that salsa and tuna belong together. How did I not know this?
Snack. Greek yogurt and blueberries with pumpkin & sunflower seeds. I promise there’s yogurt & berries under that mound.
Dinner. Shrimp, bell pepper, broccolini and cauliflower rice.
Snack. Strawberry Mango Tango Smoothie with paleo granola. I could eat this every single day.
