I finally used up the last of the filet mignon – there was only 1.5 ounces left, but it made this open faced English muffin breakfast – 1 english muffin, 1/2 cup egg whites, 1.5 ounces steak, baby spinach and a slice of American cheese split over the top of each half. The cherries look like Rainier cherries, but my store calls them “yellow cherries” for some reason.
You guys, I am still so sore after my 100 workout. My upper thighs are screaming and every time I get up after sitting for a while, holy shit, I feel like I’ve been run over by a bus. I decided to do the recumbent bike for my workout, hoping that it would stretch out my muscles.
After I finished my workout, I was getting dressed when I could feel the sweat start to drip. Not so much from the bike ride, but because of low blood sugar. It was 160 when I left, but I didn’t think the recumbent bike would be that much of a workout. Sure enough I checked it and my blood sugar was 41. Rats.
By the front desk of my gym they have a ton of protein bars, so I just picked up the first one I saw and started eating it – I am sure the woman behind the desk was like “WTF?” But after I ate half of it, I was coherent enough to pay for it – $2.50 – which I am sure was a ripoff, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

You know how I love my party pizza Friday. I haven’t made homemade thin crust in ages. There was a pizza place near my old office that we used to have delivered for lunch meetings and I remembered it to be really good. I asked Tony if he minded if I picked it up on my way home and he loved the idea.
When I went on their website, I saw that you could order a Take & Bake pizza as long as you called before 2:00 in the afternoon. But here’s what’s weird. On their menu, if I were to order a fully cooked 14 inch pizza with two toppings, it would be $14 + tax. For the Take & Bake – with tax I paid $9.10. I have no idea why it cost over $5 less to just bring it home and finish cooking it, but I’ll take it!
The directions was to bake it at 425 for 10-15 minutes. Tony and I sat outside and listened to some music while the oven came to temperature. The weather is absolutely amazeballs – right now at 10:00 in the morning it’s sunny and 67 degrees – love!
I loved it – the sausage was super flavorful, nice crust. Tony thought the sauce was a bit sweet and a bit heavy handed but I thought it was delicious. And it’s all about me, right?! I had three slices: 570 calories, 28 fat, 49 carbs, 3 fiber and 27 protein.

Plan for the day? Actually – yard work! It’s been so dry that we haven’t had to mow our lawn in probably six or seven weeks. I also need to clean out the gutters and do some roof patch work. Sounds like fun, no? Probably won’t blog again until Monday – enjoy your weekend and I hope the weather is nice where you are!
