Can you believe it is Week 4 already??? Time only seems to be flying when I sit down to write these posts but M-F/ 8-5 seems to be going very sloooow! ha!
Let’s talk Week 3: I didn’t even loose enough to share, but I planned for that. Last week (week 2) I lost 2 so the fact that this week I maintained the loss is good enough for me! So…..Going into our 4th week I have lost 3 pounds since starting this journey, which still has me at 21 total lost since Jan! I’ll take it…….and after talking to a few of you….remember don’t get discouraged! True, I wanted to see a loss this week….I tried really hard but I have to remember that not gaining is a win!
How did you do?? Did you cook anything I did? Have you been participating in the challenges? I would love to hear from you!
And also reminder if you would love to share your weight loss story, plans, ideas anything with all of us email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and send a picture too!
Week 4: Breakfast Make-Over!
So many people, my husband included do not eat breakfast….which is crazy to me because I wake up hungry! But the facts are the facts skipping that meal or any meal for that fact will NOT help you loose weight! My entire life I ate sugary cereal everyday, indulged in biscuits and gravy and loved to fill up on cinnamon rolls! While I do still eat the occasional cinnamon roll or pancakes…I now realize that is a treat NOT a normal meal! Those items are now something to eat as a “reward” of sorts from time to time! My breakfast make-over has helped me sooo much! So today I am gonna inspire all of us to start our day off right!
Do it, drink those 3 cups that I too have everyday. BUT…..I use 1 teaspoon sugar and FAT FREE 1/2 and 1/2! If you love your coffee light tan and laced with sugar try to scale that back a little each day! Coffee always helps me in the morning at work from 8-9:30ish to kick my morning hunger pains to the curb!
Starbucks? Lattes? These need to only be a “from time to time treat”!!! You can do it! 🙂
MY Breakfast! (I have shared this a lot, but stay with me)
Every single morning since Jan I have 2 hard-boiled eggs (whites only) with Salt and Pepper and 1 whole wheat english muffin toasted with Sugar Free grape jelly! (no butter and I don’t miss it) I love this breakfast, everyday I think man…this is so yummy! I really do…just picture me eating and saying “nom nom nom”
Matt makes us an egg white omelet (use the cartons of egg whites from the store) I fill mine with spinach and fat free mozzarella! Matt has sausage and cheese in his….so your family doesn’t have to always eat exactly what you do! We have this with 1-2 pieces of toast and jelly!
* So these Smart Ones morning Oatmeals are new and SO good! Last week I had this oatmeal one day in place of my english muffin! It was filling and I loved it!
* I have this as a afternoon snack from time to time but this would also make a great breakfast! 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese and then 1/4 fruit! Below is fresh peaches but I also love Mandarin Oranges (not in syrup) or melon!
* Greek Yogurt with a drizzle of Agave Nectar and I use a handful of Special K cereal! This is also an easy portable option!
I hope that maybe I have inspired you to make-over your breakfast! Do you have something you just love to eat?
