Sweat it Out:
1 Hour Elliptical
I’ve been on a fried egg and toast kick lately. I could eat eggs for every meal everyday,and I am not even slightly exaggerating the truth. The only problem is that I have been craving the sweet and savory every morning. I put jam on one piece of toast and then mashed fried eggs on the other. Totally yum, but holy cholesterol Batman, I don’t want to die at a young age! I need to get back to my protein shake in the morning. The difference between these 2 meals is that the eggs keep me full from hunger for HOURS, whereas the protein shake keeps me full for about an hour and a half?! What’s up with that?!
I made sweet and sour chicken tonight with roasted broccoli and brown rice. I SUCK at cooking rice! I pulled out my Pampered Chef Rice Cooker to use for the brown rice for the first time tonight. I’ve only had it for over a year, no biggie. I followed the directions thinking that I would make the perfect brown rice, since I always find a way to muck it up (it also makes a HUGE mess on the stove top EVERY TIME for some reason). I was thinking of the lovely review that I would give the rice cooker on the blog when it managed to make the “perfect” brown rice. This did not happen. I don’t know if it was me (I followed the directions to a T) or the rice cooker I used. After microwaving it for OVER 30 minutes and letting it sit for 15 minutes, it still had quite a bit of water on the bottom, and turned out chewy. What a disappointment.
To top it off my baby wouldn’t go to bed until 9 (regular bedtime is 7), so “me” time was practically non-existent today.
And I have been feeling off today. It could be because today is regularly a weigh in day, but since I am doing the 9 days of perfection challenge, I went to the gym instead of my Weight Watchers meeting. I haven’t left the house all day, and have had dull cramps for 2 days straight (even though it not that time?).
I did, however, make some pretty darn tasty Applesauce Muffins with sweet potato’s. I’ve been trying to broaden Hanna’s diet and introduce foods outside of the pureed baby food type food. The muffins must be pretty good, because she ate 3/4 of an entire muffin (they are pretty big and dense, so that is a LOT of muffin).
Enough complaining already! At least the day was good eating and exercise wise. Here is how today rounded out:
Is there a food that you just can’t make correctly? Brown rice NEVER turns out for me. I am rice challenged.
