Breakfast – the most important meal of the day they say. And I say HECK YEAH! I love my breakfast. It really does set you up for the day. Not only physically but psychologically as well. If you have a healthy brekkie your mind will want to keep on the same healthy track you started the day off on.
Make sure to include all the macronutrients in your first meal of the day. Carbs from veg, protein from lean sources, and fats from healthy oils. Take a look at my brekkie (pic above) this morning. This plate of egg/eggwhite omelet pan fried in rapeseed oil, cottage cheese, mixed leave sallad and tomatoes, it will set me up for hours by firing up my metabolism with a steady blood sugar level, vitamins, minerals and is low in calorie. (Pref. organice produce.)
It doesn’t have to be boring or bland. Find what tingles your taste buds and fits your morning schedule, but remember to always eat breakfast. Try my smoothie recipe if you’re tight for time.
Now have a fantastic day and live life to its fullest! :))
The reason why you haven’t seen any updates here these last few days like I promised, is because I went and got hurt before I even started. Putting my coat on. DOH! How frickin bad is that. POW! and something felt like it snapped in my back and I pulled a muscle so bad I had to go to the doctor to make sure my shoulder blade was still there. I mean, I couldn’t even scratch my head when I had an itch. Yeah, so that’s what I’ve been up to. Nursing my injury back to help.
Just watched a couple of episodes of “Killing The Fat Man” with Gary Roberts and his journey through Crossfit. Loving those videos! He’s so frank, honest, and just funny! Check out episode 8 and you’ll understand what I’m talking about. But watching them made my itch to workout even worse. But I got strict orders of a week’s rest. ARGH! It’s getting better though, which is a good sign. Maybe this will teach me some patience. hahaha! NOT!
Off to bed now so I can get up and go for a long walk tomorrow morning instead. Nite y’all!
It’s Sunday and I am mentally and physically back from a wonderful 2-week holiday. I’ve been traveling around Ireland with Mr J. where we saw the sights, ate the food and drank the drinks. Enjoying every minute of it! And unfortunately I have some extra pounds to prove it…
Being back is a mixture of feelings but it’s mostly great. I’m so eager to get back to a normal training and eating schedule – although doing my morning workout by the gorgeous mountains in Co. Kerry, Ireland won’t beat it! Have been looking into which 12-week training program I am going to embark on next and it hit me – why don’t I do my own. I don’t think by any means I am better or have more capacity than some of the fantastic trainers out there, but none of the programs out there fit my life schedule seamlessly or the goals I have, so I thought I might as well pick the stuff from the different trainers I like and make my own. My own way. Just the way I like it. 🙂
I’ll try to post my program here on the blog as I go along and share it on my Facebook page Jumping Jax Fitness so head over there too and like my page so you can get the updates in your FB timeline.
Off to the drawing board I go to work on my own 12-week program. Big task I’m setting myself but hopefully I can do it. Self-belief to be tested!!!
