Keep on Keeping on

Blizzard today. Expected to get at least a foot of snow more like two feet or more. But i will be working out because i will be shoveling snow so that is good. I ate breakfast for a third day in a row so that is good. I got up closer to the time i want to get up. I love myself for my personality.

    YIKES! Glad you are turning the snow into something super-positive. Shoveling it is strength AND cardio!

I have always been picky about breakfast and I totally agree with the suggestion to try the EAS shakes. Years ago, they were a lifesaver for me. And I also agree with the suggestion that if you aren't hungry within 30 minutes of waking, it might be a good idea to re-think your before bed eating.

Today was the first day I got up on time since I started tracking! WOOHOO! It helped that I didn't eat a big dinner for sure - it's not hard to get out of bed when you are hungry and you know a good breakfast just involves stumbling to the microwave. :)

  Three times in a row is pretty good. Did you add this as one of your streaks to track?

    I am not a morning person! when I first started this healthy journey I had to force myself to eat breakfast, and I make it easy, "Grab and go" like the protein shakes, fiber one 90 calorie bar, hard boiled egg made the night before, sometimes I throw 3/4 up of special K chocalte cereal" in a baggie and eat it on my way to work.

One thing I have learned from spark and some other reading, if we are not hungry within 30 minutes of wakingup, we are probably eating too fast and too much at our final meal or snack.

I also read people who skip breakfast actually end up eating more calories total for the day then people who don't...

and not to mention the fact that our metabolism slows when we continually skip meals. It may not store food as fat, but it won't burn excess fat as effectively.

Try getting some easy grab and go foods- yogurt, low fat string cheese, EAS protein shakes (I know they have them at walgreens and I have seen them at Walmart cheapest, get the carb control brand, and make sure to drink it cold, from the fridge or over ice.) I drink those after a strength trianing workout so I don't burn muscle.

    You are awesome! Have I told you that lately? Well you are.

Careful with the snow and shoveling. No hurting yourself. Have a great weekend.
