Progress Update - January Week 1 and 2

Monday, January 10, 2011

So after my xmas post I was terrified I would find more excuses not to get back on track...but you know what - I didn't! I started up and have been doing great. I've tracked food and fitness everyday since Jan 2, I've gotten all my workouts in - even using my lunch hour at get a workout in if I can't before or after work. Last week and this week are a bit of light workouts in preparation for my half marathon this weekend. After this weekend though full steam ahead!

I've signed up for a warrior dash in April -part run - part obstacle course - total fun! I'm using it as a goal to be totally in shape by...the obstacles will be my hardest thing. You get a viking helmet and a medal at the you get better bling than that?? lol Besides the bf gave me a hard time about not getting myself back into top shape in time and making too many now I'm mad and focused and more determined than ever...sometimes a little "I'll show you" attitude is what I need for a kick in the butt!

Things at home are really good. The bf and I have found a balance between his diet needs and mine and have been able to modify our meals to work for us both. he even mentioned training and running a race at St. Patty's day...I'm running the 10 miler...he might run the 5...he's only done a 5K so this could be pretty big for him. I would like to point him towards the 2.5 miler but if someone told me I couldn't do it, I would be irritated, so I'm going to support him wholeheartedly - b/c if he really sets his mind to it - I KNOW he can do it!

My current struggle is a working bfast - currently the bfast sandwich I use is fine but it's expensive and I want to change things up somedays to not always eat prepared, nitrate filled foods...

Here is what I need from my fellow sparkers:
I need "to go" breakfast options...especially hot sandwich like things...

Here is my current bfast:

De-light jimmy dean sandwich(~260 calories) [this is what I'm looking to change]
EAS carbadvatage shake
2% string cheese
Activa light yogurt
silk soymilk (in my coffee)

I want bfast that I can take on the go but here's the issue:
I'm picky - don't like oatmeal, hot cereals, cereal, milk, hard boiled eggs, etc...

I want to be able to make some sort of bfast sandwich ahead of time to heat up in the morning and take along....any idea??? anyone?

    What about making some sort of turkey loaf ahead of time, and then slapping that into a tortilla or some sort of bready carb?

    I like filling a multi grain mission tortilla with egg whites, bell peppers, black beans and Soyrizo vegan chorizo. Soyrizo is 60cals for 1 ounce, tortilla 140 cals, whites 30 cals, bell pepper 0cals, 1/4 c black beans 50 cals. Total calories: 280
    You can sub the tortilla for whole grain muffin or no carb at all and double the any other ingredients to bulk it up.. Oh!! Salsa too..

    I really enjoy eggs whites with a sprinkle of reduced fat cheese on a toasted Sandwich Thin. Less than 200 calories! And egg whites take less than a minute to cook! emoticon

    breakfast idea: eggs, veggies, some type of meat & salt & pepper. mix it up and pour in non-stick muffin pan. bake and then freeze afterwards. You can pop individual ones out of the freezer to pop in microwave to eat in the morning. they're so easy and delicious!
