I DO enjoy food.
After my last blog entry, I decided to make a change in my behavior and instead of sitting around feeling sorry for myself to go and do 10 minutes of cardio on the elliptical. I brought along the book I'm reading, conveniently The Spark, and 10 minutes turned into 30.
Then I decided to go eat breakfast, and I was going to make an egg.
I always eat an egg.
Seriously. I am so boring and can only cook so many things that a fried egg is like my go-to breakfast. 2 eggs, a piece of toast and some coffee all crammed down my throat before I run out and get in the car so as not to be one second late ever. (I have been late to work ONE time in the last 7 months. I punched in at 1:02 instead of 1:00)
So since Vyvyan was out of the house and I had the morning to myself and I had even done a workout for the first time in, let's face it a long time. Like 10 days long. I decided to go ahead and cook a nice big breakfast. I don't cook very often, but as I pulled out the eggs I spotted some broccoli down at the bottom of the fridge and thought hmm maybe I'll put broccoli in my eggs.
Oh we have mushrooms!
DUUUUUUUUDE! I totally put the bacon in the fridge to thaw yesterday! YES~!!!!
ERHMAGERD Green onions!?
Maybe I should put some avocado on top!
What is an omelette without cheese anyways?

And I thoroughly enjoyed preparing, cooking and eating my 903 calorie breakfast.
I think that may have been the highlight of my week.

And I thought for a minute that it was funny that I would work out and read all this inspiring crap about positive change and then go right to a 903 calorie breakfast complete with almost 100% of the fat and protein I need in a day, but then I realized that my sparkpeople journey is unique to me. I have never had a problem with my weight- I've been pretty generally the same size throughout my life from age 14, and even when I was on Sparkpeople every single day back in 2009 to get rid of my beer weight, I never REALLY limited or changed my food intake. Because dude.
Avocadoes are good for you.

What I know about myself is that when I close in the middle of the week I skip lunch.
I get sooo hungry and grumpy all because I ate a late breakfast because I woke up so late because I stayed up so late the night before desperately trying to get some time to myself after Vyvyan falls asleep and it's just. Stupid.

So yeah my sparkpeople goals aren't really anything to do with weight LOSS. Or even weight maintenance. I just want to be happy, and I truly believe that working out has a lot to do with that. So today I had a gigantic breakfast that was superbly delicious and I enjoyed it and it made me happy.
I'm going to go to work and I'm going to try to help (REALLY HELP, not just go, "the glue is in that aisle") at least 3 people.
I am going to drink 8 cups of water.
I am going to take both of my scheduled breaks.
I am going to knit on my scheduled breaks.
For lunch I am going to have a small quiznos salad (just like yesterday omg yum the raspberry dressing! The little crunchy bits!)
and tomorrow is truck day.

    I must confess that I am puzzled by this blog because I read that you are perfectly happy with eating a 903 cal breakfast and that you really don´t have any wieght issues (I have not read enough about you to know wether you need to lose weight or not) but want to feel happy and think exercise will do that for you.

    Scientifically it should work, I think I habe read enough research results about the effect on your brain, serotonin and all that stuff from exercise and I also think that a 903 cal breakfast one in a while will not hurt you if you truly enjoy it.

    For me the damaging part would be that I had another plan but it truned into eating a lot. WHen that happens (too often!) I will not feel okay however much exercise I have had, I will feel as if I hae - once again - failed in what I wanted to do. But that is brain ghosts so if you don´t have that garbage going on in your brain - I am happy for you!

    You need to change up your breakfast choices.

    How about yogurt w/fruit and granola?

    Or if you have to stay w/eggs, my grocery store sells a packet to make hollandaise that all you add is water - for eggs benedict, and it's actually not that bad

    I do have to admit your breakfast sounded good!!!
