Annie: Man, that was GOOD.

I forced myself out of bed early this morning so I could hit the treadmill (3 days in a row - tomorrow morning I sleep in!). As I drove Child to daycare on my way to work, two thoughts struck me almost simultaneously:

1) I'm hungry, and forgot to bring something for breakfast, and
2) It has been two months since I last had a Tim Hortons breakfast sandwich.

Now, given that two months have passed since this behaviour, I can admit to you now that before I began this year-long project, I probably ate those suckers at least three times a week. At least. Like, probably four.

I love them. While the one in the picture has sausage (which, for the record, I despise, whether on program or not), I like them with just egg and cheese, on that lovely biscuit which mysteriously tastes a bit like onions. Mmmmm.

So I thought, what's the harm? I've only used 2 of my Weekly Points Allowance (i.e. the points formerly known as FlexPoints), and it's better to eat at least some of them than not to...let's do it!

So I did. And it was just as delectably delicious as I'd remembered... maybe even more so because I hadn't had one in so long!

The best news of all: it was only 10 Points+! I mean, that's not nothing, but in a world of 9-point muffins, it's really not bad at all. Some good protein, some dairy, and I still have plenty of Points+ left for the day. I'll very likely dip into the WPA bank, but I wouldn't have to - this is a great position to be in. Awesome breakfast, no eater's remorse.

My birthday is around two months from now.... think I'll do it again then. Yum!

  1. Considering my "points friendly" egg muffin sandwich is 7 points I think I'm going to spring for the extra 3 and eat Timmies!
