I have been working with the international students for so long that saying its my “off day” sounds more normal then saying its my day off. So, for my off-day, I had a late breakfast. I finally decided to get my rice cooker out again to cook brown rice & Birdseye frozen veggies. (broccoli, corn & red peppers) Who says that you have to eat cereal & eggs for breakfast? I only used 3/4 cups of rice with the whole bag of veggies and it took me about 2 hours to eat it all.

Well the wind was so loud that I woke up around midnight, but did take a nap this afternoon. Not sure if the dreary weather or my breakfast made me tired. Its been chilly all day, but I made sure to walk up to the rec center for my weight-watchers meeting. Tomorrow there is a possiblity of rain & SNOW. If the weather is awful tomorrow then I won’t be going to the gym either.

I only lost “.8” pounds this week and we had a little discussion on breakfasts at the meeting. Most of us there try to have something everyday for breakfast even if its just a smoothie. In our weekly booklet that we get every week, there is a recipe for “Creamy Scrambled Eggs with Scallions & Tomatoes” for 3 points that looked interesting and now trying to figure out how to do it in a microwave seeing as I have no stove. Also wondering if I can subtract a point if I leave out the light cream cheese.

Just found this on the weight watcher website:
2 item(s) egg white(s), beat with a fork in a microwave deep dish
1 slice(s) fat-free hard or semi-soft cheese, break in small pieces and add to egg white
1 serving(s) tomatoe of vegetable of your choice


beat egg white and add cheese and vegetable. Put in microwave for 30 seconds to more until done. Rises in the container so be sure its big enough not to overflow.

I seem to remember the saying to eat like a king at breakfast, a prince for lunch, and a pauper for dinner. Which means breakfast should be the biggest meal which makes sense because then you will have all day to wear-off the calories. So I would need more then the above 1- point breakfast to satisfy me.
