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!!!

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.
