High Octane-Less Drag


My weight loss has plateaued, but I can't blame it on any diet or exercise plan not working. It's me and my being lazy.  After a good jump start in Janaury and February, I've slipped back into my ways of eating quick fix for hunger meals for breakfast and lunch, and serving myself too large of portions for dinner. On top of that, I've gotten lazy in the exercise area. My back has been bothering me, and it is hard for me to get the kind of brisk walks I need to take, along with over babying myself on my core exercises, the weight is staying firmly put.I'm like a race car that has not properly planned for their pit stops-wrong fuel, wrong tires, bad mechanics. 

At least this week I have taken back some control with my breakfasts, my fuel has improved. I still am not a fan of eating soon after being up. I need to wait a few hours, which I know nutritionists say is not the right way to fuel your body. I've gone back and read some of the breakfast suggestions from my breakfast post a few months back and have taken the advice of many. This week, I've started my mornings with apples and peanut butter, yogurt and nut filled homemade muffins, and made another batch of the breakfast bars. I think I honestly feel like my steps have had a bit more bounce. For me, I guess it is true that breakfast is my most important meal of the day. I just need to keep investing in higher octane versions of it in order to get less drag. 

Please share your ideas and recipes for any batch morning meals. I'd love to build my kitchen section with a whole breakfast link. Have a good Wednesday.

  1. I'm not a breakfast person either. I feel nauseous if I eat too early and then I seem to be more hungry throughout the day.
    You will get there with your weight loss, it just takes time.

    1. Seems like a lot of people are not breakfast eaters right out of the gate in the morning. I am not counting myself out yet on the weight loss.

    1. My problem is when I forget to eat, or go long periods where I just can't because of illness, time, stress, etc. I seem to make up with over indulging. I like the idea of a fast to purge my body a bit, but I need to change my mental state to have it do good.

    2. Well you do have to be in the right frame of mind to fast that's for sure. Everyone I talk to about it says ooh that's not good for you or I couldn't do that you need to eat etc whilst they are constantly dieting. Fasting works for me I've done it for years it keeps you young and it's much easier than dieting. Rant over I'm very passionate about fasting lol

  3. Can I just say "ditto" I was doing so good and have fallen into a 2 1/2 week abyss. And I can blame no one but me. Crap!

    1. Oh sorry you hit a snag as well. I need my water habit to improve as well. We can be moral support to each other.
