I made a batch of breakfast sandwiches this morning and froze them. I went off a recipe I found online (posted link below) - I got wheat english muffins and toasted them. I then put the eggs in a muffin tin, broke the yolks and sprinkled them with pepper, garlic powder and salt. I baked them at 350 for about 20 minutes. I used jumbo eggs so they took a little longer to cook. I made half of the sandwiches with a slice of provolone cheese and the other half with american cheese slices. I wish I would have gotten the cheddar like the recipe called for (I forgot) but they are still good! I am not a big fan of having meat on them but I had some really thin sliced buddig honey ham/turkey that I had to use up so I put a slice on each. It's more for appearance. I couldn't really taste that it was even on the sandwich lol. Each one of my sandwiches are 270 calories. After I put them all together I wrapped them up in parchment paper and they are ready to grab and microwave at my convenience!

I had my lemon water first thing this morning and then had a breakfast sandwich after I made them. I am on my 3rd cup of green tea and have about half way to go with my water jug. I am not sure what I am going to have for dinner. I missed lunch but I am going to have some tortilla chips and salsa as a snack. One day this week I am going to be making some sloppy joes. I am going to use ground turkey and add some fresh veggies to it that I have to use up. I never gave my Mom those 3 bowls of chili. She told me to freeze them and I did. I don't know why I didn't think of that before. For some reason I was in the mentality that I had to eat them or else they were garbage lol. It didn't dawn on me that I can freeze it! TOTAL brain fart on my part! I will probably freeze sloppy joe too. It'll be nice to have options!
My new exercise equipment should be here any day now! I hope it's not too hard to put together. I still have yet to workout today but I will.
