Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for me. It sets up the rest of the day. If I have a good start, I am more likely to have a strong finish of the day.
I noticed that on the days that I am in a rush I would have a protein shake with spinach, banana, 1 tbsp. of peanut butter, and almond milk. It would keep me full, but would kill my calories. 396 calories all in one drink!
On days that I would have more time, I would make an egg-white omelette with peppers, onions, spinach, 2 tbsp of shredded cheese, 1 cup of strawberries, and a cup of coffee with 2 tbsp of creamer. This whole meal is only 242 calories and it kept me fuller longer.
What a silly mistake!
Why didn't I see this before? Why didn't I make this discovery earlier?
DUH! No wonder why my weight isn't moving....
It's not about just staying in your range, it's about balancing every meal to sustain me all day. It's all about getting more "calorie bang for your buck".
I'm just glad that my light bulb in my head goes off once in a while.
So, with my new found discovery, I hope I can start moving in the right direction.
I am excited and nervous. I am going to do a 5k here in the valley on Thanksgiving morning (Race Against Rolls) with some SP members. I know I am not able to run the whole thing, but I am going to jog as much as I can and walk the rest. But I will finish it...even if I am the last one. I just want to finish what I start.
Weather is perfect here now. Love being outdoors.
Have a great day everyone!

Is it me or is this year quickly sliding by?
Well, I was in NY for a month. It was nice to see family, but it was really hard living out of a suitcase for a whole month. I won't be doing that again.
I was able to go with my mom and put my grandmother's urn in her niche at the funeral home. So, it was sad but it was necessary. It was pretty hard on my mom. Sometimes when I am on the phone with my mom, I almost always ask her, "how's grandma doing?". That's so strange to me.
Well, I gained weight with all the food out there. (It was yummy...cause some of that food I haven't had for a few years) I had NO self control....
So, I got back at 312lbs. I am down to 306 now.
Time to dust myself off (AGAIN) and continue this path of healthy wellness without beating myself up about my setbacks.
So the goal for September is to NOT PUNISH myself, besides healthy living and positive decisions-making.
I hope everyone is having a great ending to their summer. I enjoy the fall season the best. It is by far my most favorite season. I think it's because we can start enjoying the outdoors here in the desert.
Happy September everyone!
