Are magic shoes supposed to give you blisters on your baby toe?

I'd say I was ripped off but apparently you get what you paid for so I paid $15 for the torture of my baby toe. Lucky me. It's alright, though, my awesome sister Crystal (the Running-Shoe-Fairy) is sending me awesome Asics magic shoes and then NOTHING will stop me.

So I did Day Two of C25K yesterday.

It was rough starting out because my legs were screaming in agony (drama queen, much?) and pleading with me to stop moving. As I hit my first jog cycle, I told them to shut up. By the time I was getting ready to hit my third jog cycle, I thought I could walk this and no one would know. Then I'd start jogging because I WOULD KNOW!

I'm proud to report I gave every jogging cycle my fullest and did every single one of them again. I also got farther (I went the same way) before I had to walk the rest of the way home which I consider a win. I have no idea the distance I travel which is driving me insane (a short drive, I know) but the next time I get into the car I'm going to drive the route for an estimate.

I posted on Facebook yesterday about my Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast and had a lot of requests for the recipe. So here it is:

2 eggs (beaten)
1/4 cup milk (non fat)
2 TBS sugar-free vanilla creamer
2 TSP vanilla extract
2 TBS cinnamon
*8 slices of bread

1.) mix all the ingredients but the bread together (I know, duh, right?)
2.) dip the bread into the egg mixture, coating both sides
3.) brown on each side in a skillet
4.) serve.

* the egg mixture can coat 6 to 8 slices of bread depending on how saturated you make the bread. I do a quick dip and am able to coat 8 slices.

--Serving suggestions: make it a lower calorie breakfast by using fresh fruit slices and light whipped cream or blend fruit into a syrup consistency instead of using syrup to top the toast.
