I was in a huge rush this morning. The baby was up last night from 1:02-1:35 am and when he finally fell asleep, I was wide awake. Needless to say, my husband and I woke up tired! While I had packed lunch the night before, I did not set anything aside for breakfast. In our whirlwind of a morning, I ordered my husband and I two muffins along with our usual coffees (thank God for the Dunkin Donuts mobile app!).
Yes the muffin is a lot of points, yes I tracked it, and yes, I enjoyed every last delicious bite!
Funny though, because when I got to work, I remembered that I had set my refrigerator up for the week and included yogurts thinking I would eat them for breakfast or a snack throughout. In fact, I had planned to make egg cups, but refrained because I wanted to use the yogurts I had purchased first. As I looked at the yogurt and then back at my beautiful blueberry muffin, I came to the realization that I don’t even really like yogurt. It’s okay, but that’s about it. And, I won’t be successful on this journey with just okay.
So today I will go home and make a set of Sausage, Egg and Cheese Hash Brown cups (using this recipe) and will eat them for breakfast for the next few days. Then, over the weekend, I will make another serving to keep at school for the week.
Sad that a 19 point muffin taught me this very simple lesson.
