EGGsited!

Happy Easter Week y’all! I am hoping the Easter bunny comes to see me this Sunday. Last week, when I weighed, I was up 3.4 pounds from Vegas. I managed to lose 2 pounds of that over the week which means I’m only 1.4 pounds away from my lowest weight (which has me at a 112.4 pound loss). I was happy to see the number go down a bit. I’m hoping to get rid of the other 1.4 soon. I’d like to get to 115 pounds down by May because I know May will be a hard month to maintain. If I work hard, I think I should be able to do it. My body is very stubborn right now but I am trying to show it who’s boss.







The recipe this week was from the Hungry Girl again. I love breakfast and even though the Egg McMuffin from McDonald’s is the healthiest option for breakfast sandwiches, it is still much better if you make it at home. Just buy the low fat, high in fiber Thomas English muffins to make the sandwich. While the muffin is toasting, cook up the egg whites (I use generic Egg Beaters) in the microwave or in a skillet. Take the muffin out (you could spray butter on the muffin if you want just make sure it’s calorie free), put eggs and deli ham on top and then add a piece of fat free cheese. It was only 4 Weight Watchers points, compared to the 7 points it costs you to eat an Egg McMuffin and it was a tasty and almost equal substitute. Plus, it’s loaded with fiber so it’s filling. I plan on making this a lot.













I was inspired yet again by Pinterest. This time, it was for Easter. I found a recipe that baked Cadbury Eggs INSIDE the cupcakes. Jordan loves them so I made him some but also made some with Reese’s Eggs and Cadbury Caramel Eggs. I made some plain ones that I put Robin Eggs on. I got cupcake crazy. Basically, you just make your fave cupcakes from a box, fill up the batter in the muffin tins and then place a FROZEN egg in the middle so it doesn’t bake away and then you’re done. You can decorate however you want but I used the egg that was inside as the top decoration so I would know what was what. They were yummy. I wish I was a better decorator, though.



Mom, David, Lisa & I saw the Hunger Games this week and I LOVED IT! If you haven’t read the books, I HIGHLY recommend it. If you aren’t typically much of a reader, this would be great for you because they are short, they are a fast read and they are full of action. I thought the movie was fantastic. Obviously, I think the book was better and had much more detail but overall, I was satisfied. It’s just such a great story!



Mom and I were in the Easter spirit with our T-shirts. Thanks for the shirt mom! I hope you all have a wonderful Easter! I plan on eating a lot of eggs and ham and maybe, while nobody is looking, treat myself with some Easter candy if I’ve been a good girl all week!

Talk to you soon!

If you are dieting, stay strong!!! Bye!
