I am so happy that Friday is here. Finally. It’s been an emotionally draining week, watching the news and dealing with my husband’s government furlough. I understand this is just the beginning and the big whoop won’t come until his payday is here and there is no paycheck. Then the October bills will start coming in and there won’t be funds in the bank to pay the bills. I guess I should have paid attention more to Dave Ramsey and his Financial Peace University. I guess that’s the story of my life. People provide me with the necessary tools to make the right decisions – both with my financial status and with my health. I need to learn to pay attention and learn. I’m working on it and know that I’ll get there.
This morning started off great. I enjoyed my usual one cup of coffee in the morning and then ate a nice breakfast – one of my favorites – Breakfast Scramble. I measure out a serving of hash brown potatoes, a serving of crumbled turkey sausage and at least a cup of peppers and onions. Warm it up in a pan and then crumble on top either a Weight Watchers Jalapeno cheese wedge or a Laughing Cow Chipotle cheese wedge. It’s only 5 Weight Watchers PointsPlus. I don’t use any oil or butter to cook it. You could add in a scrambled egg to up your protein. I don’t eat eggs but I’ll add it to my mixture on the weekends for the rest of my family (after I take out my serving first).
