Ham and Cheese Breakfast Cups

I woke up 30 minutes early yesterday and got a quick walk in before work.  It was gorgeous – no breeze, 50 degrees.  I loved the fog hovering over the river.  It was such a great way to set the tone of being on track for the day.

I didn’t do a full grocery shop this past weekend because I had plenty of food to use up.  I am the queen of doing a full grocery shop every.single.week until Hannah is like Mom, you can’t fit one more thing in the pantry!  Okay, I get it 😀

I meal prepped these ham, cheese and veggie breakfast cups over the weekend.  So easy and delicious and the best part is that each cup is only 2 smart points (but 5 for two and 7 for three).  This would be perfect for a brunch because everyone could add their own favorite veggies and it bakes all at once.  

I am having trouble with my recipe plugin, so below is the recipe.  I love the crispy edges of the ham.

Feel free to use any veggies you like 😀

Yesterday was such a busy day, I didn’t have time to set up any pretty pictures of my food.  I had two breakfast cups (5) with fresh fruit on the side.

Luckily my sister and I got together to walk – it was sunny and 72 – perfect!  By the time I got back from our lunch walk, I had already walked 11,000 steps!

In meal planning through my fridge/freezer/pantry I found this . . . soup?  chili?  Not exactly sure, all I know is that I wrote “5 points per cup” so I had that with an ounce of tortilla chips for 9 points.  I think it must have been a vegetarian chili because there wasn’t any meat.

The day flew by.  I had a Premier Protein on the train ride home because I had goals to get to the gym before dinner.  Hello stranger!

I did the 30 minute circuit first:

And then finished it off with 30 minutes (5 minutes cool down) on the treadmill.  I start out at 3.5 mph hour for 4 minutes, then “sprint” one minute and repeat.  My last sprint was 6.1 mph – which is about a 9:40 minute mile pace.

I didn’t eat dinner until almost 9:30.  I decided to use leftover steak to make a steak, egg, cheese and hashbrown brinner panini.  I used the Joseph’s Lavash bread (2) two ounces of steak (2) one egg (2) 3/4 cup Ore Ida hash browns that I cooked with Pam (1) and an ounce of muenster cheese (4) then put it on my panini maker to get it all crispy and melty.  I dipped this into spicy salsa and this was a super filling and delicious 11 point dinner.

I ended up with a few steps yesterday 😀  I remember when I first got my Fitbit that I thought it would be impossible to reach 10k steps!

Day 1 of Biz 2.0 was great.  I was tempted by apple cider donuts, leftover pizza, gummy bears that were on sale at the store, and I chose me over the food.  Now let’s see if I can continue that another day.  Just taking it one day at a time, but it feels good to be in control.

The only thing I was lacking yesterday was water – I might have only had 60 ounces, so I am going to fill up my gallon container and keep it on my desk as a reminder to drink up!

How was your Monday?  What are your goals today?  Make it a great day!

    Hi Biz! Not sure if you have heard of Fatdag on WW connect. He has a podcast called Why's Advice- super motivating. I listen to it when I exercise in the morning. I hope you have a great week. :)

    Another gorgeous photo. You do have a gift for capturing some amazing shots. The breakfast cups look pretty yummy but I hear my husband now, where's the crust? Look at you rocking the workout!
