Loco Moco breakfast style :)

So, on Sunday, I made Jody walk 4 miles.  I didn't twist her arm, but that may have helped.  I didn't get my run in that morning, so I made her suffer with me :).

Actually ,we got lost.  I thought this one road connected with another which lead back to the main road we walked from, but it was actually a cul-de-sac.

Soooooooo, to get back to our regular walking area, we had to back track...that added about 1/2 a mile to our total...YAY!  Since I am used to doing over 6 miles on Sunday, this wasn't a problem for me. 

Needless to say, poor Jody was dead by the time we got back to our cars.

By the time we were done, I was STARVING.  I had had a banana before our walk, but that was long gone.

The other day, I saw this amazing recipe for Loco Moco on this blog Success Along the Weigh .  You should check this blog out, btw.  She and her hubby have done amazing and she has some great recipes there. 

Loco Moco is a Hawiian dish, apparently, containing rice, 2 hamburger patties, 2 eggs, and a boatload of gravy.  She has a lightened up version of this recipe on her blog that amounts to 507 calories.

I decided I wanted to make a breakfast version, so I did :)

I used 1/2 c grits made with 1c almond milk, an egg + one white, 2 turkey sausage patties, and about 3tbsp sausage gravy.

The nutritionals look like this:

So, about 346 per serving, not counting the grapes....those were just a bonus :)  Well, make that 386....forgot to add the almond milk.  That was another 40 calories.  But still, very reasonable and very, very filling. 

Libby decided she was going to look utterly pathetic while I was eating.......

The face didn't work....she didn't get any.

Hip Hop tonight....didn't do Zumba last  night because I was too crampy/bloated.  I did do an hour on the treadmill and 40 mins of weights.  Hopefully it won't be raining again tonight so Jody and I can walk, too.
