Totally proud of myself. I went to the gym and did a half an hour on the elliptical machine even though I had a headache and would have rather locked myself in a dark dungeon and had a pity party :-)
When I came home, I was starving. While killing myself on the elliptical machine, I read in the Ladies Home Journal (I think it's this month's issue) that a little protein and fiber at every meal speeds weight loss, so I figured, hey, let's try that combo for breakfast. It was late (10 a.m.) and I wasn't in the mood to actually cook something. Then I thought of Oprah and her open faced Wasa cracker sandwich that she showed yesterday.
Keep in mind I think Wasa crackers taste like cardboard. You pretty much have to pay me to eat one. But I was hungry and happened to have all the ingredients (except I had ham instead of turkey). I even had the basil. So, I tried it (sans the cheese, because all I had was fat-free American and I just wasn't in the mood for that).
I can't even begin to tell you how awesome this little sandwich was. I had two of them. Mega good. I'm not kidding. Really fast and easy and like, zero calories (those Wasa crackers are almost all fiber).
I was making a Chicken Tortilla soup and adding some cilantro when I had the brilliant idea of making one of these with some chicken deli meat and cilantro. Mmm.... Will try that later this week, after I get to the grocery store for some more supplies. Will keep you all posted :-)
For now, it's back to work :-) I did manage to pare down my e-mail box by 80 messages, so some of you who have been wondering if I dropped off the face of the earth probably got an e-mail today. Only 220 or so more to go ;-)
Oh, and if you want to see me in person (don't you dare bring a chocolate cake and tempt me :-), check out my updated appearances schedule!
