Weighing In on Weighing In: Week 33

I’m a little happier with the scale’s number this morning. Mind you, I drank more water this week, made sure I hit my 30 points for activity and ATE. I ate more than I normally when it came to points. I was restricting myself A LOT and before that, it was the holidays so I was a little goosey-loosey with all the YUMMY YUMMY pies and cornbread dressing and mead and I need to stop with the food list.  I did also vary some of the foods that I eat but let me tell you…beans with eggs in the morning is surprisingly awesome!

My sample breakfast:

1/2 cup of black beans (or red kidney but pintos are my favorite)
2 eggs cooked how you like (I prefer scrambled)
Fat-free cheddar cheese (I know sounds awful but it’s not so bad)
Bacon (one slice crushed)
Mrs. Dash Chipolte Seasoning

OPTIONAL: green onions or salsa

Heat the beans of your choice (you can mash them a little if you like), scramble your eggs with 1/8 cup of cheese and fry and crumble bacon. I layer my beans sprinkled with a little Mrs. Dash and 1/8 cup of cheese then top with eggs and crumbled bacon. Depending on my time restraints sometimes I’ll add green onion and sometimes I’ll add a couple of tablespoons of salsa. If I’m doing this for dinner I’ll add a little bit of guacamole.

Happy Thursday guys. Oh speaking of which, has anyone noticed that Canada readers aren’t showing up on the stats? Is it just me?

 

Scrambled Eggs and Scrambled Thoughts

With money now being tight (whole scenario of why in Journal Entry May 22nd – Part 4 which isn’t going to be published just yet but keep an eye out) and my husband offered to cook dinner to help keep my anxiety at bay. He’s really good at eggs and bacon. He was going to be adventurous and cook potatoes. I quickly took over because he wasn’t cutting them small enough for them to cook quickly and I was horrified at his knife skills.

Who doesn’t like breakfast for dinner. My family loves it and it’s quick and satisfying. I would have to admit that this was a go to meal for our family because there are time when we are just to busy or I forget to pull meat out of the freezer. He paired the potatoes with pepper bacon and the eggs were smooth and had tons of flavor. The meal was courtesy of the meat raffle. I spent more than I should have but I won the T-Bone dinner and the Breakfast dinner. It was kind of like having Blue Apron delivered (which my family and I are desperately going to miss since we have to cut back) because the eggs that I purchased were farm fresh eggs from a customer. I like the idea of supporting the local farms. The eggs were amazing. The bacon was thick cut and the taters tender.

I just have to try and keep my thoughts at bay. All the worries, what ifs, and negativity. He did amazing and even though we have tough times ahead we’ll be OK.
