Hope everyone got their week started on the right foot! Today I started week 2, level 2 of the 30 Day Shred. Holy cow! I have never felt more out of shape, I couldn’t wait for it to end! Hoping tomorrow is better, how could it get any worse! Sticking with it, not giving up or making any excuses like I usually would resort to! Jillian say’s “pain is fear leaving the body”. How true is that?!
This morning I had my usual breakfast, sorry people but when it comes to breakfast I pretty much stick with the same few things. Kashi’s Go Lean Cereal with berries. And for a snack I had a Kashi peanut granola bar, not my favorite one, I would have loved some chocolate pieces in there, but I still enjoyed it!
Looking through my last week of posts something struck me! I don’t eat nearly enough veggies! Here I am preaching to my girls about how important veggies are and I’m not practicing what I preach. Not good! So for lunch I still had some lettuce leftover and I topped it with tomatoes (my favorite and they aren’t even a veg, go figure) cucumbers, petite carrots, raw almonds a little feta and some homemade ranch dressing and chicken from last nights dinner. And a nectarine that I saved for later, that salad pretty much filled me up for the afternoon.
Jordyn, my youngest daughter has soccer all week from 5:30-7:30, how convenient right smack dab during dinner time! So dinner had to be quick and easy, I hit the nail right on the head with this recipe I found online from Fitness Magazine, Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onions and Spinach Quesadillas They were so easy to make, I added some mushrooms and chicken to satisfy my hubby. Delicious crispiness on the outside and the inside was gooey with flavor! lol Try them for yourself when you don’t have a lot of time or even when you have leftovers that you can’t think of anything to do with or your cleaning out your fridge!
So looking ahead to this week and planning my grocery shopping trip on Wednesday, my goal is to include more veggies into my day. I always eat the rainbow everyday BUT it’s more a rainbow of fruit. I am going to try to add some type of veggie to each meal I have, including breakfast! Yikes!
What type of veggies, if any do incorporate into your breakfast? I would love to have some ideas!
