Last night, I ate two donuts

July 9, 2010 at 8:24 am 13 comments

As I wrote last night, I had a craving for an apple fritter, so my obliging husband went out and got me one.  Except instead of just getting each of us one apple fritter a piece, he also got each of us a blueberry fritter!  I had every intention of sticking to my singular fritter, enjoying each bite just a bit too much (quite frankly, things got illicit), but then the blueberry fritter called to me.

Sitting on the coffee table, all fresh and blueberry-y, it beckoned.  It lured me with its siren song of doughy, glazed goodness.

And I caved.

I hate using pregnancy as an excuse to eat large quantities of food, but I totally whipped this excuse out to myself last night!  I also reasoned that it is a rare occurrence to have in my possession two perfectly delightful donuts.  I even suggested to myself that by watching Big Brother, it was justifiable since this was such a “special” occasion in my life.  I have no shame!

In the end, it’s really no big deal.  I enjoyed every morsel of those fritters, let me tell you!  Today, though, I am back on the Frugal and Fit bandwagon.  I ate an egg ring for breakfast!

  • 1 egg + 1/4 cup egg whites scrambled and microwaved with hot sauce and black ground pepper
  • 1 toasted whole wheat bagel with margarine
  • 1 cup of diced, fresh pineapple

This looks like Mickey Mouse!

So what did you think of Big Brother last night?  With my mouth stuffed full of fritter, I thoroughly enjoyed the episode.  The South Beach podiatrist already annoys me, and I like the hilarious bisexual, Annie.  I also think that Brittany (the one who hurt her leg by falling off the “big weenie”) looks like a young Dolly Parton and is cute as a button.  I am afraid there are no men of Jeff caliber this season, but give it time!  You never know.  Husband even watched the episode with me, although he was on his iPhone most of the time.  Then I sat through an hour of watching LeBron James choose a basketball team.  You know you are lazy when you’d rather sit on the couch and watch something you don’t care about at all, then get up and do something you actually like.  Oh well, c’est la vie.  Today is a new day!

    I think your egg rings could be called eggels (because they look like the bagels on your plate… but are made of eggs… bwahahahaha).

    I think that Annie is my favourite too! I have to say that I was NOT impressed with Rachel. As a red-headed girl in a science-related field, I didn’t feel very well represented intellectually. Sexy scientist =/= totally ditzy with boobs all up in everyone’s faces :\

      I love the name “eggels”! Cute word and fun to say 🙂

      Yeah, Rachel is going to get very annoying, very quickly. Don’t worry — when I think of a red-headed female in a science-related field, i will think of you, not her. Now just try not to get your boobs all up in my face, ok Callie? 😉

    That’s ok. I ate half a cuban sandwich last night. And i obviously don’t have the excuse of being with child

    I thought your egg ring and bagel looked like Mickey too! And now that I know its Lindt who makes the sea salt dark chocolate, I am now on the hunt for it!

      I’m sure you can get Lindt at Zellers and Walmart too, thank goodness! 🙂

        Trader Joe’s also has some sort of chocolate bites with sea salt. I have not tried them and don’t want to! (I don’t want to be an addict.) I know that you don’t have a TJ’s but it is something to check out.

        I think I tried those when I was in Chicago and they were excellent. Unfortunately, Buffalo does not have a Trader Joe’s which makes me sad beyond belief.

    I was glad to read this entry this morning, because I fell off the healthy wagon last night and shared a bag of chips & dip with hubby last night, not to mention the chocolate bar and can of pepsi… Oops! We are allowed to cave every now and then I think 🙂 I also had eggs and fruit this morning.

      Mel, it’s great to hear from you! How are R and D (Research and Development? Haha) and Baby? Are you going to Angie’s birthday party next week? Is this inappropriate to be writing in response to a comment on my blog? 🙂

      • 11. Mel  |  July 9, 2010 at 2:38 pm

        All of us are doing well, though I think we partially melted in the heatwave. I am still not sure about the party because the day before is D’s birthday and he hasn’t decided what he wants to do.

    i too hated that foot doctor!!!! what was up with throwing pillows when the lights went out??? is he 5? big boobs is a big ditz. i wish i could remember now what it was, but i remember her saying something particularily ditzy when she was introducing herself. at first i thought that brendan would be the new jeff, but then i saw a clip of him in the diary room with his hat on sideways. is he a gangsta? that pretty much killed my attraction to him right there.

      I forget which one is Brendan, but I agree with everything you said. Our BB opinions always seem to align. This will be an interesting season, of this I am sure!
