No Pants Wednesday!

Hello friends!

Just whipped up a DELICIOUS meal of breakfast for lunch.


In this little number was:

  • 3 egg whites, one egg yolk as the base
  • Sauteed spinach
  • Banana pepper
  • Reduced fat Mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil (from my own plant!)
  • Pizza sauce

After eating a tasty homemade pizza last night, I was not ready to let the pizza party end quite yet.

I rounded out the meal (and my sweet tooth) with a Vita Top in Dark Chocolate covered with a little dollop of some Harris Teeter branded caramel delight.  The only reason I “splurged” on the Vita Tops (which are normally a little outta my price range, read: $5.69 for a 4 pack) was because they were BOGO at the Teeter. Hard to say no to a BOGO….

Chocolate... ice cream... pizza plate. Totally appropriate.

In other news, a lot of you have been asking (haha not even one person has asked this, but I wanted to talk about it. I always wonder when bloggers post this whole “a lot of you have asked… wondered about _____” if that’s true or if they just felt like chatting about it.  The world may never know)…

What I meant to say is: I felt like talking about why I always drive home for lunch.  Part of the reason, of course, is the fact that I can whip up delicious treats like eggs and sauteed spinach and grab my own ice cream. But the real reason is the following:

PANTS! (ugh these ones are looking a little loosey goosey, I promise they look classy IRL)

I hate wearing pants. I really do. I think there was a span of 3 years, before I made my Glorious Transformation (aka lost 40 lbs), when I didn’t wear pants. I wore dresses, skirts, leggings, and athletic shorts…. but I avoided pants like the plague. Mostly that reason was due to the desire to not wanna jump up a size. But now that I’m at a size I’m comfortable with…. I still hate em.

So every day, at lunch time, I sweep myself home for a brief, shining lunchtime. The very first thing I do….


And for that period of time, while I’m making my meal and writing my blog post…. the pants of the workday are gone. GOOD RIDDANCE!  So even though the title of this post is No Pants Wednesday…. for me, it’s always No Pants day.  And I like it like that.

Do you like pants?  If not, GET EM OFF! (unless you’re in public, don’t cause a ruckus, y’all)

Where do you eat your lunch? At your desk? In a conference room? Out in some restaurant?

I tend to avoid eating out during lunch, mostly to save money (but also because most of the time, I’m too busy wearing no pants to wanna be out in public.)

  1. I’m addicted to jeans. I wear them all year and have too many. It’s insane. I am actually less inclined to show off the legoramas. Part of that is working in lab (who wants to spill plasma on their legs? Not me!) and the other part is I just feel weird at work. That said, I am starting to break out of my shell and be a bit more daring. This has happened 3 times this summer. Baby steps. 😉

  2. HAHAH NPW!! You should get that going in the blogosphere like WIAW

    I’m cool with pants, mostly because they cover up my hairy, pale legs.


    I eat lunch at my desk! I used to live 5 mins walking distance to work and even then I’d eat at my desk. So silly. I could have been making yummy lunches like yours without pants on!

    • I used to be very big on the sofa, though lately I’ve set myself a “perch” on the middle island type thing in my kitchen, leading to a lunch eaten while standing (and sometimes…. while dancing).

  3. Haha that’s awesome! Good for you. I don’t mind pants at all. However, after a long day- the first thing I want to put on is sweats or pajamas to I’m comfortable! I usually eat my lunch at home, however if I’m going to be in class then I’ll pack something yummy 🙂

  4. The Urban legend has always been “What does JP do on lunch break?” Now we know. I we have a day where we all wear house gear at work!
