I made a change to my breakfast the last 2 mornings, and boy do I feel a difference. Since prior to Thanksgiving, I've been all about eggs- mostly omelets- and it's worked for me. In the packets Allan sent us though, I read that we should be striving to include a starch as well. Memphis has been freezing this week, so hot oatmeal sounded awesome. Tuesday morning I used whole grain oats, a diced up apple, some cinnamon, and 1/4 cup of sugar free maple syrup was 247 calories-- and so filling I couldn't finish it and skipped my morning snack. Today, I threw in a banana and 1 tbsp peanut butter-- again, too full to finish it and skipped the morning snack. I don't like how heavy it felt on my stomach so early in the morning, I felt a little sluggish (though admittedly, that may be lack of sleep too), and all things carb were so much more tempting the rest of the day. It didn't help that so much junk came through the office today either (pies, cakes, fried fish- you name it), but I did stay away from them. So what have we learned? Apparently I can't have carbs first thing in the morning! I'll start adding some fruit in with my eggs though.. I think that's a fair deal.
There's been no working out the last 2 days either, partially because that muscle in my lower leg is still sore, and partially because I just wasn't feeling it. Between the 12 hour day and the issues with Mr. D, I'm just drained. Tomorrow I'll be sucking it up either way and hitting the gym. No excuses.
