Get up 7 am, make coffee and breakfast, get showered, dressed and leave for work. Definitely need to get up earlier and exercise.

If it's a work day: Feed the cat, make tea, grab my workout gear and clothes for work, and hit the gym at work for 45 minutes or so. I eat breakfast after my workout, otherwise, my stomach is a mess.

Feed the cat has to be first! Then make coffee, do computer, read the paper and do the crossword. THEN, I am ready to face the day.

Coffee and computer is first thing. Anything quiet for an hour, so I won't wake household.

My job is chaotic. I am trying to put myself at the beginning of the day. Then every one else has most of what is left. emoticon Otherwise, everyone else get all of my day, and I get what is left of me in the last hour or two. emoticon If I don't work out in the morning, it won't happen at all!

I wake up around 3:00, get online to check mail and also visit Sparks until about 4:15. That's when I get in an hour of exercise.
Then shower and coffee. I don't eat breakfast until around 7 a.m.

Oatmeal, wheat germ, cinnamon, skim milk, protein powder and whatever fruit I have on hand. Yum! It gets me going.

Some days I have to hurry to work, but I am working on getting up at 5:30 more days so I can crawl off to the gym first. I often pray on the elliptical, or do strength training. Then I shower change and go to work. By that time I have had a lot of water and usually a coffee on the way to the gym. In my bag is a healthy breakfast, lunch and snack, so I eat as a catch up on e-mails and voice mails. I like home made whole grain muffins with fat free cream cheese or plain yogurt with fresh or frozen fruit, sweetener and a little grape nuts, or a baggie of oatmeal mixed with powdered milk and dried fruit. (I mix with water and microwave at work.)

Every day is different - today it was up early, out to a community breakfast meeting, and then off to take daughter and 2 year old granddaughter to aquarium -- such fun
Often, I start with a bowl of steel cut oats with mixed berries, some espresso and then a walk or trek downstairs to the gym

Definitely NOT with alcohol!

Breakfast is usually an omelet, or farina, or a high fiber protein shake, with fresh strawberries.
