I finally used up the last of the filet mignon – there was only 1.5 ounces left, but it made this open faced English muffin breakfast – 1 english muffin, 1/2 cup egg whites, 1.5 ounces steak, baby spinach and a slice of American cheese split over the top of each half.  The cherries look like Rainier cherries, but my store calls them “yellow cherries” for some reason.

You guys, I am still so sore after my 100 workout.  My upper thighs are screaming and every time I get up after sitting for a while, holy shit, I feel like I’ve been run over by a bus.  I decided to do the recumbent bike for my workout, hoping that it would stretch out my muscles.

I read my book while biking – I am almost done with my first book in years! Open-mouthed smile  The next book I am going to read (based on Jacky’s good reads suggestions):


After I finished my workout, I was getting dressed when I could feel the sweat start to drip.  Not so much from the bike ride, but because of low blood sugar.  It was 160 when I left, but I didn’t think the recumbent bike would be that much of a workout.  Sure enough I checked it and my blood sugar was 41.  Rats.

By the front desk of my gym they have a ton of protein bars, so I just picked up the first one I saw and started eating it – I am sure the woman behind the desk was like “WTF?”  But after I ate half of it, I was coherent enough to pay for it – $2.50 – which I am sure was a ripoff, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Lunch was leftover shrimp stir fry.  One of my co-workers had some salad shrimp she wasn’t going to eat, so I added that to the pool.  They kind of really shrunk when I heated them up!

You know how I love my party pizza Friday.  I haven’t made homemade thin crust in ages.  There was a pizza place near my old office that we used to have delivered for lunch meetings and I remembered it to be really good.  I asked Tony if he minded if I picked it up on my way home and he loved the idea.

When I went on their website, I saw that you could order a Take & Bake pizza as long as you called before 2:00 in the afternoon.  But here’s what’s weird.  On their menu, if I were to order a fully cooked 14 inch pizza with two toppings, it would be $14 + tax.  For the Take & Bake – with tax I paid $9.10.  I have no idea why it cost over $5 less to just bring it home and finish cooking it, but I’ll take it!

The directions was to bake it at 425 for 10-15 minutes.  Tony and I sat outside and listened to some music while the oven came to temperature.  The weather is absolutely amazeballs – right now at 10:00 in the morning it’s sunny and 67 degrees – love! Open-mouthed smile

I loved it – the sausage was super flavorful, nice crust.  Tony thought the sauce was a bit sweet and a bit heavy handed but I thought it was delicious.  And it’s all about me, right?! Open-mouthed smile  I had three slices:  570 calories, 28 fat, 49 carbs, 3 fiber and 27 protein.

Plan for the day?  Actually – yard work!  It’s been so dry that we haven’t had to mow our lawn in probably six or seven weeks.  I also need to clean out the gutters and do some roof patch work.  Sounds like fun, no?   Probably won’t blog again until Monday – enjoy your weekend and I hope the weather is nice where you are!
