WIAW Official #9

Happy WIAW/Belated Valentine's Day!

Valentine's day is neither here, nor there for me. It can be fun, but I am not going to be cranky if no one gives me a Valentine...well maybe not.

This morning DH disappeared to 'go to the dry cleaners' (we never go to the dry cleaners except to wash our comforter...) and magically came back with this:

Yes. That is an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen.

If you know me, you know that I am not a big fan of cake, so every year I would get an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen instead. I haven't had one in a few years and I mentioned it during my birthday last of course he ran out to get me one for Valentine's day.
Side note: I have a lot of will power when it comes to food, but it completely dissolves around an ice cream cake. Please help me.

He also brought in this.

Just so I can poke holes in all of them to see what flavors they are.

I have much more willpower when it comes to candy. I don't ever crave candy...maybe chocolate, but not really candy like this. However, I do like to bite or poke holes in all of the pieces just to see what flavor they you probably wouldn't want to share a box with me...

Breakfast on the way to my Medical Nutrition Therapy II Exam was two of my Low-Fat Banana Muffins topped with 1/2 Tablespoon of Skippy Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter on each muffin.

Trust Me. This picture is prettier.

I don't like saying whether or not a test went well, because every time I do that I jinx myself. So, no comment on the test.

I stopped by the store to pick up some medicine and non-essentials before heading home to do a little cleaning and laundry. Around 11:30am I fixed lunch:

Romaine Lettuce topped with 1 Plum Tomato, Yellow Bell Pepper and Honey Mustard Dressing
I had half of this: 1 Smart & Delicious Tortilla, Low Fat Cheese, Tuna, Yellow Bell Pepper, Mushrooms; Side of Salsa

I know, not many people like Tuna. That's okay. I very rarely eat it, but this odd combination popped into my head while I was laying down last night and I had to have it for lunch. Weird? Yes. Yummy? Also, yes.

I worked on case studies for the rest of the afternoon before I went to teach a 30 minute Abs class and a 1 hour RIPPED class. Of course a greek yogurt bowl had to happen before I worked out. Is the day really complete without one? I think not.

0% Plain Greek Yogurt, Mango, Trader Joes' Granola, Almonds, Coconut, Chocolate/PB Chips

After teaching, I came home and made Dinner.

Romaine lettuce with raw broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and honey mustard dressing.
Steamfresh Rotini & Veggies
Quorn Chik'n Patties with ketchup

I just might go sneak a piece of that ice cream cake...shhh...don't tell anyone.

What food is your biggest weakness?

Check out the whole WIAW Party at Jenn's!


  1. What an awesome ice cream cake! :D

    What food is my biggest weakness? Probably trail mix, cereal and chocolate. My self control pretty much goes out the window :P

    1. ohhhh, yes! Trail mix is another one for me as well! ;)

  2. Loooove DQ ice cream cakes! I wouldn't be able to control myself either!

    I also can't control myself around bags of chips. Total weakness :-X

    1. I love DQ! It reminds me of my childhood so much! :)

  3. On my grandpa's 90th birthday, all he wanted was pizza and a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. It was delicious. I don't know what they put in their "icing" but that, combined with the chocolate crumblies...[sigh].

    Speaking of ice cream, that is my biggest weakness. Of course, I'm dealing with lactose intolerance now, so I've had to resist for awhile...

    1. Your Grandpa sounds like an awesome man! ;) Yes, the inside of the ice cream cake is the best part!

  4. DQ Ice Cream cakes are soooo much better than normal cake. I hear you on that one.

  5. Oh wow, what a great ice cream cake Courtney! Any kind of gummy/sour candy is my weakness, I just can't stop!

    1. I love sour candy too! Have you ever tried the sour skittles? They are pretty good! :)

  6. Those muffins look good, but add in the peanut butter and I bet they are really divine!

    1. Yes, the PB makes it all complete! :)
