If There's A Will, There's A Way

Hello, my lovely blog readers! I am having some unfortunate blogging problems today. My work computer has a big, bad virus on it that prevents me from using the internet, which while it is being fixed, means no blogging! How very sad! However, if there is a will, there is a way! Being the devoted food blogger than I am, I found a way to publish my breakfast post. My coworker (and good friend) agreed to upload my photos for me, and I am using a public computer at the school to blog away! :) I hope you guys appreciate my efforts! Just kidding! I'm happy to blog for y'all!

Here's breakfast...


Breakfast this morning was a breakfast sandwich made with ham, swiss cheese, and egg whites. My egg sandwich held me over so well yesterday, I decided to have the same thing again today. With my sandwich, I also had 1/2 of a mango, which was very ripe and super sweet!


As always, iced coffee ready to join me on my commute to work...


My breakfast sandwich up close... how delicious does that look?!? To make the egg white patty, I coated a small bowl with cooking spray, poured 1/3 cup of liquid egg whites into it, then popped it in the microwave for 2 minutes. Viola! The end result was a perfect egg patty, ready for a breakfast sandwich.


Question of the Day

What is your favorite quote?

Me: My favorite quote isn't food/nutrition-related, but it describes me fairly well...

"And if life's just a living room
Then I'm in the hall and I'm glad
Oh, I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad..."

-- David Gray

Ahh, I do hope that the computer virus is cleared up soon!!

Ripe mango = heavenly.

My favorite quote (it's very long, haha):


"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."

- Harvey Mackay

Grrr... I hate computer viruses!! How awful!! My favorite quote is:

So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.
-- Steve Jobs

I don't have a favorite quote right now, but your breakfast sandwich looks fantastic. I was just discussing how I was happy that Starbucks decided to keep their breaksfast sandwiches, but yours look 100% better and I am sure it's healthier, too!

I love microwaving my liquid egg whites like that! It makes them so versatile. I often add cheese or veggies so they cook directly into the egg - YUM!

Hm - I can't think of my favorite quote because every time I read one I think "ooh, I love that!" so I guess I'll take the cheaters way out and say too many to name! ;o)

Hey Tina,
I just wanted to let you know that I love your blog...your an inspiration to me. I also wanted to tell you that I did your 45 minute treadmill workout today and I felt amazing afterwards..It def. spices things up on the treadmill. Now, for my favorite quote. I have two.

"Shoes can change a girls life...ask Cinderella"

and...

"Act the way you'd like to be and soon you'll be the way you act"

On an unrelated note, I was wondering how you got to where you are in your career. Did you study higher education administration or student services or something different entirely? I am interested in college advising/administration and am curious to hear about your experience getting there and what you like/dislike about your job, what it entails on an average day, etc. Thanks for sharing!

yummy! breakfast sandwiches remind me of my childhood. so delicious! one of my favorite quotes (i have so many) is:

"9-5 is how to survive. I ain't tryin' to survive, I'm tryin' to live it to the LIMIT and LOVE it a lot!"

kristenb,

My Master's is in Higher Education Administration. In my study, I took various courses ranging from student affairs to organizational administration to accreditation to college student development. My degree covered a wide range of higher education topics and issues.

My job is difficult to explain because I do a million different things! My main responsibilities are managing 4 websites as well as the School's online course evaluation system and professional practicum requirement system. Besides the dorky computer stuff, I also update program publications, coordinate meetings, plan workshops/seminars, advise students and many, many other day-to-day tasks. It's never the same thing twice!

What a great idea for a quick, mess-free way to cook eggs! I am definitely going to have to try this, your egg-wich looks soooo good!

the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

As you could likely guess from my name, I'm a mango addict and eat at least one a day, lol.... just finished breakfast and seeing your pics make me crave one now. :-)
Hope your computer sorts out quickly, being disconnected is frustrating!
