It is much less hectic today thank goodness. Yesterday was a very busy day. The good news is that I had enough points to have McDonald’s for dinner and catch up on some TV. I managed to get my lazy butt out of bed this morning and work out. That was the first time I have gotten up and got on the treadmill in awhile. I’ve been walking at night because I think the morning was wearing me out. I did a couple miles and I just go so much faster on the treadmill so I’m pretty sore. My knees are what hurts today. I’m not sure if the hurt is because I worked out hard and it was beneficial or if the hurt is a warning sign...I don’t want my knees to go completely bad...I need them so I may slow down a little from now on if I’m on the treadmill. Either way, I don’t think it’s a bad thing to slow it down sometimes. I can mix it up. No matter what, I’m still moving and getting all of my steps in. I told myself I need to get up again tomorrow morning but we will see what happens.
It’s interesting because I’ve done a lot of thinking/talking about Egg Beaters this morning. I was going to tell you all about a sandwich I had yesterday with Egg Beaters and it just so happened that Nish texted me this morning asking me if I ate them because they were filling AND a girl from work asked me if I have eaten them before because she had some today...so I got egg beaters on the brain. I think I’ve talked about eating them before. Are they the world’s most delicious egg? No. Would I rather eat real scrambled eggs with cheese? Yes. Do they smell like a mixture of aluminum and sulfur while cooking? Yes. Do they make a good, filling substitute to have for breakfast? Yes. Nish said she eats a serving (which is about ¼ cup) and a piece of light wheat toast and it’s only 1 point. I have been getting the ones that have two servings. It comes in packs of three and each pack is about the size of a pudding cup. They say that each cup has 2 servings...this still only adds up to about 60 calories (one serving only has about 30) which is still only one point. So, that’s pretty good...you get a bowl of scrambled eggs for 1 point...throw some salt & pepper on them and it’s not too bad.
Anyway, the sandwich had bread...I know I’ve talked about Nature’s Own before...but it’s great and you get 2 pieces for 1 point if you get the 40 calorie, honey wheat kind.
Egg Beaters...which I talked about before.
Cheese. I can’t stand fake cheese. Sargento makes a reduced fat Colby Jack that is only 40 calories and one point per slice and it tastes REALLY good. I can only ever find it at Wal-Mart though.
Bacon. I think this is the right brand...You can just pop this bacon in the microwave for like 20 seconds and put it on the sandwich. The best part is you get 4 pieces for 70 calories which is only 2 points. Also, I’d like to apologize for the incredibly cheesy title...I like things that rhyme.
Basically, you can have a bacon, egg & cheese sandwich for 5 points and it’s pretty good. I think it might be my new thing.
Ok-today is the first softball game. If you will remember from my story...it should be interesting. I’m not even sure that I’ll play but I will be there to cheer Nichole & Cassandra on. I’m not too thrilled about missing Idol but there are more important things right?
“They say all's fair
In love and war
But I won't need to fight it
We'll get it right and we'll be united
And I know that we can be so amazing
And being in your life is gonna change me
And now I can see every single possibility
And someday I know it'll all turn out
And I'll work to work it out
Promise you, kid, I'll give more than I get
Than I get, than I get, than I get
Oh, you know it'll all turn out
And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And I promise you kid to give so much more than I get
Yeah, I just haven't met you yet.” Haven’t Met You Yet-Michael Buble
