In fact, when I was first married the only food I could make was breakfast food!
this is my standard morning;
Yes i own a 1980s egg poacher, dont hate. its awesome.
Occasionally i have quick oats with fruit in it, or the apple sauce my husband made.
I was chatting with some g/f lastnight and was surprised how many of them dont eat breakfast.
And they all range in fitness level and weights, from that bean pole friend that could never wiegh 100lbs if she tried. to the jolly green giant friend that is actually 6 feet tall. We are at ranging weights and sizes, kids to plus sizes. I guess it just surprised me that all ranges didnt eat breakfast. Maybe i always assumed i was heavier because i eat a hearty breakfast.
Breakfast is fuel.
It wakes me up for my day.
It also makes me not be starving for lunch at 10 am
I am a food person i love food.
i also love sleep so i totally understand the sleep-extra-20-mins-vs-breakfast.
BUT, that 20 mins or so to make and eat my real breakfast really helps me prepare for the day.
Its not for everyone.
But i read a lot of health and fitness, books, mags, interentings, and i rarely see anyone neglect breakfast.
I love breakfast.
You should too.
Whats your favorite breakfast food to eat or make? What is your go to breakfast?
soooo today was 1 min walk 4 mins run TIMES 4!!!
Which is more than i have been doing the last two weeks. i have only been running 3 sets.
Well when my interval went off for # 4 i was doggin it.
tired. burnt out. my leg felt bothersome. i quit two minutes in.
series of events happened that put me here:
running late - i hate that.
lifted, then went to run outside, packed my FAVORITE JACKET.
this jacket then got all kinds of jacked up on the zipper
then my husband made it worse - bless him, he was just trying to help
double late to getting into my run in time.
random people on the indoor track running in the middle. ok, here is my thing, the track is tiny, you can see everyone on it. if you know you are slow move over. you know you are about to get passed why must you be in the middle. so then there was that.
then, my terrible fourth set...
late leaving the gym while i am trying to make sure i stretch
so needless to say it wasnt the greatest run.
but its done.
This is NORMAL.
I know that, this is typical for running.
BUT, my mind keeps saying i should be able to go run 5 miles today.
and i can't.
i just need to take a step back and be grateful and take each day, run, as it comes.
tomorrow: arms, core thrusday: legs, run: 1 min walk, 5 min run x3 friday: arms, core saturday: maybe try a spin class (?), run: 1 min walk, 6 min run x3
1. 30DS every weekday morning- 90% I missed Thrusday morning. Then i didnt make up that day.
Honestly Level 2 sucks ass. I will have to do it Monday - Saturday this week in order to move on. blerg. I hate you JM but DAAAMN my leggs look good...
2. Meal prep - DONE! Checkity Check! I made quiches and T-Dubs made me an incredible birthday meal. So we had lots of leftovers. I did however over do it with our Star Wars marathon, BBQ, Beers, Irish Coffee, and Pizza later. GAH! Then on Sunday, we ordered pizza and caught up on some shows. And then our lap top died. horray.
3. Live more weigh less challenge - i struggle with some of the challenges, like wearing red lip stick. one, i dont own any. two, i am not about to go buy any. BUT the "tell your body you love her" day, happened to fall on my birthday but it was great.
1. GYSTS - this needs to happen. T-Dubs and i agreed this morning no more ordering in, even with friends. We need to pass on that.
2. 30 DS - gahhhhhhh i dont wannnnnnnaaa! - i am also getting sick. :(
3. Try to remain calm for my impending dentist appointment on Thursday. I hate the dentist. Story for another day.
4. Goal is to run through this routine this week. Its from my physical therapy trainer.
This is from this morning, got my run in. 3 mins walk 2 mins run x3. And i am suppose to stretch and heat my leg after. Honestly i am just happy to be running. I got runners high on saturday and sprinted. Then about died because i am so outta shape :) But sooooooo glad to be back!
no judgies my slow fat ass.
I am getting back in slllllooooowwwwwly. I am NOT getting injuried again.
Set yourself up to reach your goals. Don't set your goals out of reach.
^ sometimes i need to just chillax.
Which is what i did yesterday, we watched some Trek and part of the new spiderman (lame, save your time).
Do Level 2 of 30DS every MORNING this week. - monday done.
Arms - M,W,F
Get 2 pain-train runs in. i am suppose to expereince pain from a 1-3 and never pain the next day. i want to push through but i also don't want to get injured again, but i still need to go out and do it. Tuesday & Thrusday with legs.
Prep quiche tonight for healthy lunches all week. - do this TONIGHT, NO EXCUSES!
plan tuesdays meal - planned.
Drinks - well i am off of the beer for most of this month as i do Shred and try to eat better but i did have two sunrises lastnight whoops. sorryimnotsorry. But my goal is still not to buy any beer. except my birthday.
Enjoy my birthday this year. Indulge and be ok with that.
I signed up for the Live More Weigh Less challenge via instagram. I follow a lovely lady on there that posted something that caused me to inquire more. Ok so heres the deal you get daily things/tasks you have to do. For example this Friday we are supposed to wear red lip stick, which is gonna be a problem because, i dont actually own any lip stick. I got a late start and had catch up all weekend. So my goal is to actually do these during the week. Its a great concept on loving yourself, and getting some garabage out of your head while trying to have a better relationship with food. I am excited that my birthday falls on the "tell your body you love her" day. On a day i dont want to hate everythign about myself, i am very excited for this. :)
Tomorrow I am going to do a "if money grew on trees theses are things i would want for my birthday" post.
5. Your worst family reunion moment?
My family is pretty awesome. Not gonna lie. As a kid i had a cousin who always belittled me when we were together, even all through high school. I know it was her projecting her insecurities on me, but it made me feel pretty terrible all the time.
6. Best Christmas Present you ever received?
Miliemun Falcon. Double Duh.
7. Worst Christmas present you ever received?
One year my folks went off on this whole "we need to be frugal thing" then they have me a digital camera i didn't even ask for. It was like like terrible, it was the principal that was so effing confusing.
8. Disney World of the Beach?
Disney really is the happiest place on earth.
9. Post a selfie pic of you at this exact moment.
No. #oneaday #instagramrules #rulefollwer @robine182
10. Post the 5th picture in our phone.
Nose bleeds last season a Illini Basketball! #bleedorangeandblue #fightingillini
This bisch right here, is killing me.
Level 1, Day 8, with 22 days to go.
I am resting on weekends because i am usually very active.
I am adding this 30 mins on top of my normal strength training at #5amclub.
I AM STARVING ALL THE TIME NOW! :(
Which is really disappointing because it means i am not losing weight because i am eating tons all the time.
On Arm Day (MWF) i can barely come home and do the pushups.
Also i don't have weights, i have cans that i use.
I am hating her. I sort of cant wait for Level 2.
As i have never been there before.
But I am also just deflated by all my poor eating.
I also wanna kick this challenge in the BOOTY!
I wanna do 30 days (w/ rest days in there) and hit all LEVELS!
Goals (now till monday)
plan meals for the rest of the week and weekend.
Shred tomorrow and then on Saturday morning.
Run one minute outside tomorrow (leg day). I ran for 1 minute yesterday on the dreadmill.
BIGGEST GOAL I NEED TO MAKE HAPPEN: Stop drinking beer.
I am going to attempt to clean up my poor drinking for the rest of the month.
Except for the 11th, my birthday. :)
we moved our bed room for the 3rd time, (1 move in, 2 move upstairs, 3 move back down stairs).
im the biggest chicken because bailed on joining adult gymnastics
i saw a mouse in garage the first week we moved in, and i keep having dreams about mice in our bed. One of the cats slept next to me two nights ago and moved under the covers and when she did, i woke up and jump straight out of bed because i was 100% sure she was a mouse on me, in bed.
our bathroom is DRAGGING out. baby steps, people.
I am setting goals for #GYSTS, I started yesterday and ordered pizza.
i am rewatch Penelope for the 100th time! I Love that movie and James...ahhh james.
Amber is doing this button sorta challenge this month.
So here go some September goals.
1. Track all weigh ins. Gain or Loss
This isn't a huge deal but should be doable. It helps me stay focused and encourages me to plan my meals and eat healthy.
2. Do 30DS 5 days a week.
This will be my first time EVER completing this stupid ass shit. But i joined a fb group and other ladies are doing it. so i should also be able to do it.
3. Try easing into a lite jog
This will be more difficult. With my leg, i am not only fearful but overly cautious on fixing the problem on recreating it. So light jogs to work on. I also just want to go on more walks. Hubs and I used to walk all the time, and i think that helped us keep the weight off, plus it encouraged us to NOT drink. But their are evil bugs in our yard that bite us all the time. MidWest chiggers? They suck and make me not want to go outside.
4. Do NOT EVER give up. And eat bad ALL DAY!
New me. New meal at every meal. Old me would trash a whole day or two and gain a ton of weight. If i have a snack attack or eat something bad, fine. Shake that off.
