Consider Me Surprised

Here I thought I was shopping-while-champagning again when a package from KikiLaRue showed up at my doorstep Monday. In it was the scarf and pants I just put on my wish list the other day! In my mind I thought I had just given up on waiting, and bought them for myself. Then today as I was driving to work my mom called me and asked if I had received a package...I received 3 packages while I was away. You can say I like to shop online :) Low and behold, my momma was the one who bought me the clothes from my wishlist!! I felt so bad that I didn't know it was her and just put the clothes in my closet without thanking her! Bad child! I realllly love the scarf and pants though. I'll be wearing them tomorrow at work!
With the holiday's approaching I keep thinking about how everyone freaks out at this time of the year. And I'm no different. "Do I look nice? Do I look fat? Omg I'm so pale I hate winter." And "One piece of cake won't kill me." Yeah, until one piece of cake turns into 6. Anyway, over the next few weeks I'm going to be sharing some of my nutrition and health tips to help stop the hunger train and the negative thought train this time of year.
Today, it's all about Breakfast. Yes, you've heard its the healthiest meal of the day but you STILL don't make time for it? You should! Breakfast is your starting fuel for the day. Your body needs it to jump start and ignite your metabolism for the rest of the day. Due to that, you should probably pick something heavier on the carbohydrates with a good amount of proteins and fat as well. I like to have my shake (Shakeology) for breakfast because I get carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and probiotics all at once. But that doesn't mean you have to...some other great breakfast options include:
  • Oatmeal with 1/4 cup nuts, 1/4 cup dried fruit and 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Egg Whites on Whole Wheat English Muffin
  • Breakfast Burrito:
    • 10 inch whole wheat tortilla with the following cooked and combined inside:
      • 4 egg whites
      • 1/8 cup salsa
      • 1/4 cup reduced fat cheese
      • 1/4 cup black beans
Before breakfast I also LOVE to get a quick workout in.... now, I'll be honest here, I've SUCKED at that this week. With the cold weather starting I have zero motivation. I'm doing my best to work past that though, because change doesn't happen if you don't work for it!
What's your favorite breakfast or morning workout?



  1. I love KLR! How sweet of your mom. I never go without eating breakfast...I can totally tell a difference when I don't!

  2. Awh, that's the sweetest thing ever! I think I should start telling people about my wish lists :)

    Oh and I definitely agree, breakfast is the most important meal of my day! My go-to is a simple egg scramble, maybe paired with avocado or toast.


Thanks for stopping by! Love hearing from you :)
