Time to stop the party

by Joanne on February 25, 2009

It’s Ash Wednesday and time to stop the over indulgence.  That’s what FAT Tuesday is all about isn’t it? The last Hurrah?

My back was extremely stiff this morning. I had a hot stone massage on Sunday which was glorious but it didn’t loosen anything up or maybe it did, but my leg workout yesterday just made things worse.  As a result, there was no workout this morning except a nice walk with Shane to loosen the “clamp” a bit. 

I was really craving something just a little different this morning so I went with a weekend omelet combination less the toast. It consisted of…

  • 6 small asparagus spears
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup Egg Beaters
  • 1 oz Reduced Fat Feta Cheese
  • 2 TBS salsa
  • 1 plum (yum!)
  • 1/4 cup fresh pineapple (double yum!!)
  • 1 cup of Coconut Mango Oolong Tea w/ a splash of soymilk.

The tea is very orange smelling, but when brewed, the flavor mellows.

This breakfast added up as follows:

Total Calories = 287.  Protein = 36.5 g. Carbohydrates = 25.7 g. Fat = 4.9g. Fiber = 6.1 g.

My walk with the Shane-er, averaged about 255 calories burned, so out of my daily allowance of about 1639 or so calories, I am left with approx.  1607 for the rest of the day.  Those are the figures that “CalorieKing” came up with.  I won’t argue.

We had a meeting this morning, so I’m a bit behind and better get a move on.

Have a great day!

      Hi Joanne – thanks for commenting on my blog! Your omelette sounds great here. I walk daily with my dog, Wilson, too. We are lucky to live in a hilly area so we get a good work-out. Funny, when I was younger, walking was not exercise, it was just a way of getting from point A to point B, now that I’m older, I call walking exercise. Haha.

        Hey, seems like we’re on the same wave length. I just whipped up a mushroom and zucchini fritatta! (Perfect for ash wednesday).

          Danielle: I do love my egg beater omelets. I’m thinking of treating myself to them during the week – we shall see!

          Lori Lynn: Don’t you just love your walking companion? My walks with Shane are the best.

          Annie: Love Frittatas!
