Carrot-and-stick consistency - and eggs!
Saturday, July 09, 2011
So much for the 7 day Sparkpeople bootcamp! While I loved the first workout, the rest all require a stability ball, which I do not have. I don't have room for one in my tiny place, unfortunately. I did work out again this morning. Jumping jacks and British sketch comedy for 15 minutes! I am motivating myself to work out in the morning by pairing working out with watching stuff I'd want to watch anyway.
I used a microwave egg-poacher for the first time today. I love eggs, but I don't eat them enough because I am a food-assembler. Eggs are simple to prepare, but I like no preparation. I rarely eat out without company, but I do the almost-instant thing at home. I like salads, sandwiches, cereal, yogurt, bars. It's not like I don't like hot food (I do!), but I just don't have the patience for starting to make food before I am actually hungry. I can assemble cold foods quickly. But with this poacher, I can crack open an egg or two, microwave for a minute, and poof! Cheap, healthy, salt-free, non-processed protein! It's like a dream come true. These eggs will be making a regular appearance in my salads/sandwiches from now on.
