I'm definitely a breakfast person! I'm a teacher and if I don't have breakfast I get MEAN with my students by the time lunch rolls around. My fiancee and I have been loving making a "green monster" smoothie in the morning with a scoop or 2 of Body by Vi protein added in. It's really quick and I can make it on my way out the door in the morning. Plus, I am an egg hater so it's important for me to find other breakfast substitutes =)

As far as fitness goes - I started C25K on Friday, and am hoping to actually stick with it this time. I've gotten a few weeks in a couple times before and have put up a mental block and quit. So my goal is to stick with it!!!

It was too dry for me. I will try it again but will add some blueberries to it.

I'm already a breakfast eater so this isn't that difficult for me. Changing up the fitness routine is tricky with my knee, but I'm always willing to give it a shot.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. –Steve Jobs

I'm not a breakfasr eater so I had to learn this. I have started taking 2tsp peanut butter on oatbread and have at my desk around 8 am with a banana. It's a good breakfast for me. I have also started making fratattas on Sunday. Wrap them up and it's a quick grab I can heat for breakfast too.

I have to eat breakfast every day because I take my medicine after I eat to keep from getting upset stomach..

I have "The Spark", "SparkPeople Cookbook" and "Spark Solutions"

I set my ticker to my highest weight of 210 lbs because it gets upset and doesn't want to save when I gain weight instead of lose.
on Dec 30, 2012 I joined SparkPeople and weighed 195.8

This week's challenge:

"Living the good life" Challenge – Eat Your BREAKFAST & Look up a Spark Breakfast RECIPE emoticon

emoticon Aim this week to make a habit of eating breakfast daily

You’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, did you know that eating breakfast may actually help you lose weight? Breakfast jump-starts your metabolism in the morning, so eating soon after you wake up will raise your energy level right away. Aim to eat within an hour of rising.

Chef Meg’s Rule of 5 for cereal - 5 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein, less than 5 grams of sugar.
