Can I just tell you how difficult it is to want to prepare yourself a healthy, nutritious breakfast when you’re surrounded by these…
Talk about a challenge first thing in the morning!
This morning, I hit the gym bright and early for some cardio + BodyPump. Since I missed yesterday’s usual BodyCombat + upper weights, I figured I’d hit up the ‘pump today. I completed 15 minutes of HIIT on the treadmill before tackling what turned out to be quite a challenging class…but totally in a good way!
So as if that wasn’t already enough of a challenge this morning, I then come home and am faced with that challenge you see right up there. Man oh man.
If you’re wondering why in the world I’m baking cookies at 7am in the morning (not that that’s a bad thing) it’s because I’m getting ready to send out the goodies to the winning bidder from TGFA. In addition to a batch of my beloved Crackled Sugar Cookies, she will also be getting a batch of Jessica’s Puffy Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips. Lucky gal!
You guys should be proud of me. Look at the healthy, nutritious breakfast I managed to make myself while those cookies were baking away in the oven.
As usual when I make the Crackled Sugar Cookies, I am always left with 3 unused egg whites. And since we all know that nothing goes to waste up in here, I put them to good use. However, the peanut butter cookies also left me with another egg white, so you know what that means folks…
A whopping 4 egg white veggie scramble! This bad boy was filled up with green pepper, onion, and some fresh cherry tomatoes. I also gave it a little sprinkle of dried basil, salt, and pepper…absolutely delish!
I paired my scramble with a piece of toast with raspberry jam and a glass of iced coffee.
And believe it or not, I’m actually not even tempted to go dig into those cookies right now.
But that’s also because I’m not currently in the same room as them either.
Questions for the Morning:
WOULD YOU RATHER…(we’ve got a mix today!)
- Eat peanut butter cookies -OR- sugar cookies? (Sugar- these are the bomb)
- Be gossiped about -OR- never talked about at all? (be gossiped about…I dealt with it all through elementary/middle/high school, so I think I can handle it!)
- Eat a handful of hair -OR- lick three public telephones? (<—isn’t that naaasty?!? I’ll have to go for the handful of hair…but it still makes me gag a little)
