I’m Ashley (McMillan) Weightman. I grew up in the small town of Wimbledon, North Dakota. In 2005 I moved to Bismarck to go to school where I graduated from the University of Mary with a Bachelors Degree in Communications and Business. I began working at the CBS affiliate as a reporter while in college and spent three years there. From CBS, I moved to Devils Lake to work at WDAZ-TV for a year, before continuing to work at WDAZ in Grand Forks. I married the love of my life Travis on June 23, 2012 and we now live in Bismarck with our three year old son, Corbin. Travis works at KXMB-TV and I at KLJ Engineering and attend Rasmussen College where I’m pursing a Bachelors Degree in Human Resources Management and Organizational Leadership.
Weight has been a struggle for me since I can remember. I do well for a while and then fall off the wagon. Four years ago I lost nearly 50lbs and was doing great. Two months after maintaining my weight, I found out that I was pregnant and gained 70lbs in nine months. I figured after I had Corbin, some of the pounds would fall off. Corbin weight 8lbs 12oz and I only lost 3lbs. Ever since December of 2009, I’ve been doing fad diets for about a month, trying the gym on and off, and eat healthy and nothing seems to be working. I’ve recently had some health issues and my doctor told me that in order to have more children and be a part of my children’s life, I need to lose weight, but most importantly, I need to do it for me.
So one of the things I learned in my three week slimdown is a great breakfast recipe. It's pretty much an omlete that looks like a muffin!
All you have to do is mix up your eggs like you were to scramble them, I use a dozen at a time, this allows me to have enough for the week and not have to make them so many times. When you have the eggs ready as if you were to scramble them, add some vegetables. I usually put in what are called power greens and mushrooms. You can easily add peppers, onions, and even some sort of meat, whatever you like in an omlete really.
Preheat your oven to 350degrees. After you're got them mixed up put them in a greased muffin man. I use the Pam spray to make sure they don't stick. Then, place them in the oven and watch them grow. I usually cook them for 15-20 minutes, but watch them closely. I end up poking them with a fork when they look about done, just to make sure there is no raw egg hiding.
When I take mine out, they usually colapse a little and I'm not sure if that is normal, but the still taste good! When they are cooled I'll put them in a container and throw them in the fridge until morning. In the morning I'll pull some out, throw some shredded cheese on top and warm them up for 30seconds.
This is super easy and it's also quite filling! It's also something my son can just grab and take with, too!
Let me know what you think!!
