As i'm usually busy getting my daughter ready for school in the morning (like always mom comes 2nd), I don't get to eat till i'm at work. My biggest problem is, what do i eat??? I've gotten so used to grabbing muffins & bagels that I don't know whats the best, easiest, quickest thing to eat in the morning. I've been eating mission wheat tortilla's with a bit of chive/onion cream cheese & a cup of tea for breakfast, but that's going to get old fast... any suggestions??? P.S. i can't eat anything that contains aspartame!!!

Your breakfast food plan - it's pretty much the same Mon-Fri..nite before work I get my ingredients together for my breakfast sandwich
What time: approx 8:30 a.m.;where, at my desk checking email beforework; and what you ate for breakfast - 1 egg; Arnold round sandwich thin, 1 tbsp roasted red pepper hummus, one slice either pepper jack or provolone cheese and 3 slice butterball thin & crispy bacon
Your goal of the day - to make it to gym after work the rest of the week.
"You don't have to eat a perfect diet to be healthy. You will not suddenly get a nutrient deficiency or gain weight from one snack, one meal, or one day of eating. It's what you eat consistently over time that matter. Progress, not perfection, is what counts." Principle 10 of Intutive Eating -
My usual breakfast, at least during the week, is a whole wheat bagel with peanut butter, eaten at my desk at work sometime between 8 - 9 am, usually closer to 8. I know, it's a bad habit to eat at work, but it's a step up from my former bad habit of skipping breakfast!
And this morning... I had a whole wheat bagel with peanut butter, at my desk at work at about 8:30.
I usually exercise for about an hour in the mornings, lately it's been a mix of the Wii Fit and a cardio video. I've gotten bored/frustrated with the Wii Fit aerobics - it doesn't seem to get my heart rate up any more and the breaking every 5 - 10 minutes is annoying. I still use it for strength training, and on days when I plan to do 60 minutes of cardio I use it to fill in the missing time from my dance videos - one is 30 minutes, the others 45. I end my workouts with the Lotus Focus game on the Wii Fit and try to set an intention for the day. So I guess I have two goals every day - to work out for 60 minutes (either 60 minutes of cardio or 30 ea cardio & strength, alternating days), and to meet whatever my intention for the day is.
Which is a long way of saying, today I had two goals and I met them both: I worked out for 60 minutes and I was productive.

Breakfast food plan (if it's the day or night before): Tomorrow, I will come home from dropping my son off at school and going to the store, and will have some toast with cream cheese on top. Maybe a banana if we pick some up at the store.
What time, when, where, and what you ate for breakfast: Around 8:30 this morning, in the living room, with the toast, cream cheese, biscotti, and coffee (with creamer)
Your goal of the day (even if it's not a Wii Fit goal) : Today, my goal of 1 hour+ of exercise was achieved. Tomorrow, my goal will be to get all the stuff we had planned crammed into the day, with some extra time leftover.

For us Wii Fitters, a healthy breakfast begins with more than just grabbing something quick and rushing out the door (or skipping breakfast altogether). It is a critical point in our faith in ourselves and what we're doing towards our goals. On this page, post three things:
Your breakfast food plan (if it's the day or night before)
What time, when, where, and what you ate for breakfast
Your goal of the day (even if it's not a Wii Fit goal)
Remember, victory begins in the morning! Launch your day the Wii-Tees way and double your results.
