Day 36: Tuesday, Oct. 7, Assessment & a Yummy, Simple Breakfast Wrap

Had another great workout today – yay! During lunch I walked 2.5 miles which felt great! After work I hopped on the elliptical for a mile while my workout partner finished up her cardio. Then together we did legs! (Lying leg press machine; seated calf raise machine; hack squat machine; adductor machine and abductor machine). So basically we did calves, inner thighs, outer thighs then two exercises (lying press & hack squat) that work hamstrings, glutes and quads simultaneously! We did 3 sets of each exercise with 10-15 reps on each. Notice I said a lot of machines… my friend is being so cool about my foot and machines help put little to no stress on my foot so yay! (normally she has me doing squat jumps, walking lunges, reverse lunges, etc.) It’s nice to mix it up and I’m so glad she’s on board!

Today was a good day and I feel much more positive about work. I’m excited about going to Auburn this weekend, too! Can’t wait to see our friends and celebrate a friend’s birthday and just have a great time! Also – Austin got me firefly vodka – yay! For those who don’t know, it’s this amazing sweet tea vodka. It’s SO good, but hard to find. He found it yesterday and they only had a handle… that’ll work! I’m so excited to mix it up and drink less beer – I just know I can do it!

So as far as food I had 1,305 calories, 160 carbs and 42 fat grams. So carbs were a little under but other than that, great! What I ate Today. For dinner I was CRAVING a breakfast wrap – random! I’d never made one but I grabbed:

2 eggs
1 morningstar sausage patty
2 butterball 98% fat free turkey bacon
1 mission 98% fat free flour tortillas (the replacement since the enchilada incident!)

I preheated the oven to 350 degrees cracked the eggs, added a dollop of skim milk and salt, pepper and tony’s creole seasoning. Once the eggs began cooking, I cooked the sausage and turkey bacon back to back in the microwave, then chopped/ripped them into tiny pieces which I threw into the egg as it cooked. I dropped the tortilla on a pan to heat, and continued cooking the egg/bacon/sausage mixture. A couple minutes later I laid out the tortilla and put the mixture in – YUM – it looked so good, then I wrapped it up and cut it in half – voila! Yummy breakfast wrap! It had 409 calories, 18 fat grams, 30 carbs and 30 protein. Next time, to cut down on calories and fat, I’m going to use one regular egg with ¼ cup egg beaters, and I’m going to make it one slice of bacon. This will make it have 339 calories, 11.5 fat grams, 30 carbs – so 70 less calories and 7.5 less fat grams –yay! I’ll let you know how that tastes!!

hehehe it's like a V squat machine where the weight goes on your shoulders and you squat on this platform. It looks intense! I only do it with my workout partner (her favorite is lower body - mine is upper!) :)
