Hanging In There {Broccoli & Cheese Mini Omelets}

The title pretty much says it all. I'm hanging tough with the WW program. I've had a couple "hungry days", I'm pretty sure it TOM related. But I'm kind of enjoying the new serge of energy I'm getting from all of the fabulous HEALTHY food I've been downing. That's not to say I haven't had a piece of chocolate or two, but you know what? I've been honest about it with myself. Yep...I logged all FOUR of those Cadbury eggs I ate throughout yesterday. And I'm not sad about it, I'm not hiding it like it didn't happen. I'm human. It's going to happen. But that was the only temptation I brought into the house and now they're gone. LOL.

I'm also hanging in there's my 32nd birthday. Nothing special about today other than I've turned another year older. My hubby took us out to lunch after dance class. It was awesome. I had a salad with one strip of breaded chicken on it. I even ordered no croutons and cheese on the side! Look at me rocking it at the restaurant. Then the hubs spoke up and told the waitress it was my birthday so I got a free slice of pie. I opted for a no sugar added slice of chocolate pie. Sadly I didn't finish was too sweet. How bizarre is that? It also helps my tummy was full of yummy fiber. ;)

Tonight, as the hubby slept, I opted for breakfast for dinner. I was dieing to try out this awesome recipe from Skinny Taste. 2 Points Plus per "muffin." I accidentally forgot the olive oil and I substituted with mozzarella since it's what I had, didn't change the points value, but they were still awesome! And now I have a few in the fridge for breakfast the next couple of days. I paired it with a cup of fresh cut fruit and had dinner for 6PP (because I ate three muffins).

If you have any awesome ideas for spicing up this recipe, let me know!
