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.
