WIAW: Low motivation

Due to the fact I actually took pictures of some of my eats yesterday, I decided to continue the trend with What I ate Wednesday. This isn’t everything I ate….didn’t take pics of lunch or dinner but…..

Peas and Crayons


I am obsessed with most of Juli at PaleOMG’s recipes. I think I’ve woken up and made her carrot breakfast cake/muffins at least five times this summer. And that’s saying a lot since usually when I wake up I need to shove my face with food and coffee immediately. They take about 30 minutes to bake. So if I’m willing to wait you know they’re good!! Her blog is probably my absolute favorite blog to get recipes from and I have been known to repeat many of her recipes and use them several times a week. They really are amazing. Love it!


I added blueberries instead of raisins. And there’s some frozen strawberries from my berry picking adventure last week.


Yesterday I FINALLY found the new Quest bar flavor White Chocolate Raspberry. I have been looking for it forever and shamelessly begging them to send me a sample.


Verdict……meh. I think it might have been a fluke though because the texture was just dry and crumbly. It might have been an issue of the GNC storing them wrong or getting damaged during shipping because the flavor was really good but it seemed dry for some reason. I have experienced inconsistencies from bar to bar though with Quest Bars so I will not give up on this flavor!

In other news: Here are some pictures of things you probably shouldn’t have in the house when you want your pants to fit.


Ohhhhh myyy goddddddd….. This is really a mistake on my part for buying this at Wal-Mart and now getting addicted to it. If you feel as if you can support a 3-5 dollar a pint addiction, go pick up a pint. So creamy and full of flavor. This company also uses all natural, non-GMO ingredients and doesn’t have any nasty additives (this is what justified me buying it). I literally CANNOT put it down once I start eating it. I am in an internal battle regarding the question to buy this again or not. I want to try the coconut kind really bad!!!! But I also like fitting in my pants!!!

Also, a stroll through the kitchen for any reason is finding me grabbing a handful of these babies….


Seriously…why do I buy these things?!?!?

But in all honesty, I am definitely off track as far as my eating habits go since returning from the honeymoon. I don’t know if it’s just being idle and not working and having a routine….or what. I am constantly hungry (hence all day snacking on chocolate chips) and when I do eat meals it doesn’t even satisfy me. I have no motivation for ANYTHING including workouts. Ugh. I know it’s from all the crap I put in my body the last month and am hoping I fall into a better routine and start feeling better once school starts. I joke about it but I know I just need to stop buying things like the stuff in the previous pictures because if it’s not in the house I won’t eat it. But.it’s.so.good…..It’s an ugly cycle because I feel like crap, which makes me want to eat more crap, which makes me feel like crap! I need to get my motivation back!!

What do you do to motivate yourself when you’re in a slump?

Are there any snacks you absolutely CANNOT put down therefore do not buy?

    Gah! Where did you find the Enjoy Life Chunks? I typically only see the mini’s but would love those! I’m a fan of Julie’s recipes too but I have to refrain myself from going to her blog too much or I’ll make all her goodies! Too much good stuff!

    Ugg I hate those motivation slumps. I’m kind of in one myself. I find it best to stop thinking about it, or at least let it be, and eventually it comes to an end. If nothing else, enjoy the chocolate. I have that same bag 🙂

    I love Paleo OMG too! I actually haven’t made anything from her yet but she gives great inspiration for recipe ideas 🙂 I should seriously make something from her site on of these days… Maybe that protein carrot cake!

    I don’t have any motivation to workout either. Instead I just force myself to walk everywhere. That doesn’t really work when I’m at home and everything is 10 minutes away or more BY CAR!! But at school where everything is in walking distance basically (except for the occasional trip to walmart) then I end up walking about 1 hour everyday.

    I go through slumps like that sometimes, too! I find that going to a class actually helps motivate and push me, which helps me get back into that grove. I imagine this happens to everyone!
