Eggs in a Pepper

Yesterday’s Workout and Weigh-In

  • 3.25 miles treadmill (1 minute walk/1 minute fast run)
  • Biggest Loser Circuit Workout – 60 minutes

I was really dreading the weigh-in yesterday because I know that I didn’t eat very well over the weekend and gained a little bit of weight. (It sucks that it takes me two weeks to lose a pound but only two days to gain it.)

I ended up losing 5.2 pounds since the last weigh-in. I am happy with that, although I knew it could have been higher. I plan on trying my hardest between now and the next weigh-in. So far since starting the Biggest Loser program, I have lost 12 pounds. Since I started my weight loss journey in March, I have lost 28 pounds.

We also had our body fat tested yesterday, and my body fat dropped down to 23%, so I was pretty happy about that.

Today’s Workout

  • Butts and Guts Class – 60 minutes

Breakfast

I got the new issue of Fitness magazine over the weekend, and while I was flipping though it. I found the most amazing idea – eggs in a pepper ring! So delicious, yet so easy and simple. Why have I not thought of this before?!

Luckily, I happened to have eggs, red and green peppers, and onions on hand, so I decided to combine them to make an eggs in a pepper breakfast.

I simply cut thick rings from the peppers and laid them in a pan. Then, I added one egg white per pepper, threw in a few chopped red onions, and sprinkled a little bit of pepper on top. I cooked them for a few minutes and then flipped them over to cook the other side.

I rounded out my breakfast by adding a clementine and blueberries on the side.

In completely totally unrelated news, did you hear that Hasbro is bringing back the Furby for 2012?!

Furbies were the hot toy when I was young, and I actually got kind of excited that they were bringing them back…until I saw the price tag. $54!

$54 for a Furby?! That’s just crazy. You could pay $54, or you could do what I did and go to Goodwill, buy a Furby for $2.99, and save yourself $51.01.

Questions of the day:

  • What you your favorite toy as a kid?
  • What’s your favorite way to eat eggs?
  • Have you ever had your body fat measured?

  2. awesome idea! I used to love eggs in a toast frame when I was younger haha hmmm my favorite toy was probably beanie babies.. I loved those!

  3. Congratulations! Also to answer your questions:

    ■What you your favorite toy as a kid? I have no idea actually.
    ■What’s your favorite way to eat eggs? In my protein pancake or over-easy.
    ■Have you ever had your body fat measured? Absolutely, after my weight loss I was measured at a 23 and then again at 18 after 5 weeks of weight training. I’m aiming to go down much lower for my competition though! I bet mine was over 50% before the weight loss. Wooooah nelly. Sometimes I think about it and get goosebumps, 50% fat, ugh…

  4. Look at the big picture–down 28 pounds since you started this journey!!! That’s awesome! You should be very proud of yourself. :)

  5. I had no idea that you had lost so much weight! You have always seemed so tiny since I have been following you. Have you been taking before and after pics to document the process?

    My favorite toy as a child was definitely my Cabbage Patch Kid. Actually, I had three of them but one in particular, I took everywhere. I still love that doll, lol!

    • I loved my cabbage doll!! I think I still have her somewhere.

      I posted before and after pics when I finished the spring loss challenge back in June, I think. I’ll do new ones after the biggest loser contest!
