Reflection Friday

Ah it's Friday again and let me just tell you the last couple of days have been a challenge. I have been more hungry than normal and knew something had to be wrong. So I started to read back through my blog (side note: any bloggers out there I highly recommend you do the same) and saw this post about breakfast. Ah eggs, the incredible edible egg. Seems so simple. Packed with protein and goodness. So this morning I went to the fridge trying to figure out what to have for breakfast and it was almost as if the eggs jumped out of the carton into my hands. So you might ask what I did with them, well I took yellow and green peppers, onions, mushrooms, and jalapeno and sauteed then made an omelet topped with fresh tomato. I also had a yogurt. I have nothing against fruit in the morning, but protein does my body good. I am satisfied and should be till lunch time. and if not I have a couple of Kashi bars and a banana on stand by. So this post is in praise of eggs and re-reading your own words. Funny how we can forget the simple things so very quickly.

A note on my exercise: I have been to the gym 1 day since weigh in. I was tired one day and today had to tend to a slightly ill Chuck Norris (the dog). I will be back at it hard this weekend, and then Monday and Tuesday. Hoping to get in 5 workouts total. That means 4 in the next 4 days. Then I will take next Wednesday off.

If I don't drop in for a visit over the weekend I hope you all have a safe and fun weekend!

Protein and healthy fats really stick with you. My husband always has two eggs and lean ham for breakfast every morning and it really gets him through a hard morning of work and keeps his blood sugar constant.

I'm a big fan of peanut butter in the morning myself.
