Breakfast vs Workout....

Thursday, September 08, 2011

Good Day Sparkfam! I need a cup of joe to help me this morning. Here in Chicago its a gorgeous fall day out, I mean its 71degrees sun is shining I love it! The only thing is that this fall like weather makes me sleepy. On Tuesday night I made a list of things I need to accomplish in morning before I go to work:

1.Get up watch Joyce Meyer 5am
2.Do Total Body by Gilad 5:30am
3.Leslie Walk DVD 20mins 6:40am
4.Get lunches ready & pour cereal for breakfast
5.Get me & Izzy dressed & make sure Tristan brushes his teeth

People, I premade lunches for both me & my son & did everything except make a hot breakfast. Today, I just watched Joyce, made lunches for me, my son & my hubby got in on the deal too. Then made pancakes for me & my son & the hubby wanted scrambled eggs sausage sandwich on wheat. I forgot to add sausages to his sandwich but he loved it anyway. That type of love & attention saved us all $16.92+ if figure we all eat out for breakfast & lunch. So I had to trade breakfast for my morning workout. Its not too bad, I just have to focus tonight & make sure I just do it! I will come back on Spark tonight & read some motivating blogs about people who are going to gym after work & that needs to include myself. Also by eating breakfast, I am not as hungry as I was yesterday from eating cold cereal. I feel really full.

Tomorrow I am going to try to repeat what I did on Wednesday morning as far as my list. I know I won't have time for all of it but I need to compress to make it happen.

So what would you choose, breakfast or your workout?

God bless Sparkfam & I'm ready for a nap!

    well I have to eat to fuel up for my workout. Can't run on empty. I took my sister suggestion to exercise right after eating and this has worked out great for me!

    Great Plan Dee. You do have a busy morning. I might choose Breakfast of Oatmeal & Yogurt to stay satisfied. Work out time can be rescheduled. You handle multitasking very well. Kudos to you! Pancakes sound good too. Well enjoy your Thursday evening!
Thanks for reading my blog. That cake is really good & easy even your son could make it. LoL

    Dee, I think you should DEFINITELY eat breakfast rather than working out a particular morning, if you can't do both. It helps to keep your metabolism up & keeps you from overeating later in the day. If you can exercise after work, there's no downside.

I do think that your family members could take turns helping with breakfast! It's good for them to learn how--& your sons' future wives will be eternally grateful to you. emoticon

This day IS just gorgeous! emoticon

    Hey Dee, you're doing great! I am proud of you. I wish there were some more pool days - we have an outside pool in our condo building. But it IS lovely out!
I went to Dots today to buy an outfit for my HS reunion. The 1X was too big and the XL is too small.
