WIAW (4/15)- See What An RD Eats 5

What does a Dietitian really eat?

It’s Wednesday again, isn’t that crazy?  The days just keep rolling by, sorry no post last night I got a brutal massage that left me pretty sore… hoping it will loosen up some of my angry muscles though!  At this point we are suspecting a bad tear or strain in the lower back, these things take time and I must be patient.  I’ve already come a long way so I’m happy and grateful for that.  

*Disclaimer: I do not take a picture of EVERYTHING I eat, just like everyone I snack or take a bite of things here and there and sometimes don’t take a picture.  I try to do a decent job at just creating an overall picture of what I eat on a daily basis.  What works for me may or may not work for you, as always listen to your body and eat in a way that makes you feel your healthiest and best!

Caffeine Cut Down 

I’ve decided that I’ve officially completed my caffeine cut down challenge and I’m so happy.  Last week green tea or green tea matcha powder made up the majority of my caffeine consumption.  Last weekend I didn’t have any all weekend and was totally fine, no withdrawal symptoms or anything so I was pretty happy about that!  I’d say it took about 4 to 6 weeks to totally get off my caffeine dependency and addiction.  I will always be addicted and love coffee, but I wanted it to be an enjoyment (not a I have to have some coffee or I will die) type thing.  I’ll try and recap the whole process soon!  


I cut the strength training last week in an attempt to give my back muscles a break and chance to heal.  I still flared with all the walking though so I’m taking it even lighter this week, but more on that later.  

  • Sunday- rest
  • Monday- walked 3.1 milles
  • Tuesday- walked 2 miles
  • Wednesday- walked 2.77 miles
  • Thursday- walked .5 miles
  • Friday- chiropractor
  • Saturday-rest

I drove across town this morning way earlier than my meeting started just to beat traffic, so now I’m sitting at starbucks enjoying a feta wrap and nonfat triple decaf caramel macchiato… starting the humpday off right!
