Conquering My Inner Demons

I Conquered some of my inner demons by stepping out of my comfort zone and running a 4 mile race - a distance I haven't run in quite a while - in the rain no less. Every time I doubted myself I said, "not today!". It's what got me jumping over all those puddles too!  Even when the fog shrouded the finish line, I didn't give up.  Even when my Garmin watch stopped soon after stepping over the start line, I didn't give up.  This was my last race of 2019 and it was a good one!

A Bad Case of Mom Guilt

Feeling the mom guilt HARD today. 

My allergies got the best of me this weekend and, to say I'm miserable, is an understatement. The baby also woke up snotty and puffy eyed so we are a matching pair. No fevers, thankfully, but I almost wish we had one. I'm supposed to take her to gymnastics this morning and I just can't. When I'm not blowing my nose, I'm sneezing. 

So, why do I feel so guilty about missing this optional activity with her? Is it just mom guilt or is it my anxiety manifesting itself as perfectionism? I'd like to think I'm a smart woman so I know I should take care of myself, but I have the hardest time staying home because I'M SICK. In fact, it's so bad that I took an allergy pill this morning so I can rationalize to myself that now it is not safe for me to drive across town to my 15 month old's gymnastics class. 

Sigh.

I still feel guilty.

And it's Monday.

Egg Fast Diet Success!





I mainly posted about this on my Instagram Account , but I've had a few followers reach out with questions about it so I decided to dust off the old blog to jot down my thoughts on my second Egg Fast.

The plan I followed is from fellow blogger, I Breathe I'm Hungry.  You can find the plan HERE.

I've followed this plan once before over 2 years ago so I decided to refer back to it this time, although there are other Egg Fasts out there.

But why you ask?

I decided to follow this plan because June consisted of 2 weeks of fun albeit unhealthy eating and I knew without stepping on the scale that I'd gained back some of the 20 + pounds I'd recently lost.

An egg fast would help me clean out my liver, get back the energy I so desperately needed and help me loose the bloat.

Did I succeed?

Hell yes!

Do I hate eggs now?

Kinda.  I did eat 3 almost 4 of the cartons that I bought to do this.

How much weight did I lose?

5 pounds which is what I gained back from all that celebrating and vacationing.  The first time I did one I lost 6 or 6.5 pounds in 7 days.

What will I do now?

My plan of attack now is to keep eating at least one egg based meal a day and keep fasting for 16 hours minimum a day.  I think I am also going to work on fasting 24 hours at least once a week.

Why Intermittent Fasting?

Well now, that's a question for another post.

Questions about the egg fast?  Please message me.  I'll try to answer them the best I can.

High Protein Breakfast Bowl



I created this recipe because the sausage patties I bought were originally for a different recipe, BUT that recipe involved almond flour which I am highly allergic to so I needed to find another use for them.  Voila!  I came up with this high protein breakfast bowl! 

On a whim, I decided to throw the patties into a frying pan, crack a few eggs over them and then add whatever else I could that would add flavor.  Sometimes it's bacon bits or onion or pepper. Even pepperoni gets thrown in there!  This is really anything goes type recipe except​, you know me, I stay away from the carbs.

Ready for the recipe?  Here it goes!

Ingredients



  • 2 frozen sausage patties
  • 2-3 eggs
  • Handful of shredded cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Any other ingredients you might want to toss in like chopped onions or peppers


Place your sausage patties into a heated skillet. Crack your eggs on top like you are going to fry them then toss in the rest of your ingredients. Cook until the eggs aren't runny.  It's really that simple.

Let me know when you try it.  I want to hear how it tastes!
