Just one of those days…

Standard

Even though today was absolutely beautiful I’m glad it’s over!

My day started by sitting in rush hour for over an hour and a half…

Once I finally got into my office I was in meetings and on the phone for 5 straight hours…

Luckily I was able to sneak away for lunch and meet up with two of my favorite old co-workers.  We ate at The Market and Cafe & Wine Bar on W. 9th!  I can not describe to you how much I fell in love with this place… the food, the decor, the company!  If you haven’t been there… GO!

Since I primarily work from home I headed back home around 3pm and the weather was spectacular!   85 degrees in Northeast Ohio in May… I’ll take it!

However on the drive home the light in my car that lets me know if my tire pressure is low, came on… I decided to pull into the nearest Lube Stop to have them check my it and they informed me my back left tire had a tear and two punctures in it.  They were able to patch it however suggested I get it looked at.  So guess who’s getting a new tire this weekend…

By the time I got home I decided a needed to soak up the sun to make the day worthwhile.  I managed to convince my hubby that we should load the bikes up and head to the towpath as soon as he got home.  He agreed!  It was exactly what the doctor ordered.  We rode 10 miles!  Fortunately today’s #mayfitchallenge was…

Breakfast & Catch up!

Yea I still have readers:)!!!  Staying on the #mayfitchallenge bandwagon today is…

May 2nd- Healthy Breakfast

Todays breakfast consisted of:

100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Thin

1 Tbsp. Almond Butter

1/2 Banana

1 egg/2 Egg Whites w/cayenne pepper

There’s nothing like a good healthy breakfast to start your day out right.  I HAVE to eat breakfast, going without it is not an option.  Whenever some asks tells me they are having a hard time losing weight the first question I ask them is, “What do you eat?” Most of the time their response never starts or includes with breakfast because they skip it .

Need a few facts on why you should eat breakfast…

  • Studies show that eating a healthy breakfast (as opposed to the kind containing doughnuts) can help give you:A more nutritionally complete diet, higher in nutrients, vitamins and minerals
  • Improved concentration and performance in the classroom or the boardroom
  • More strength and endurance to engage in physical activity
  • Lower cholesterol levels

The more weight that I lose the more I am starting to realize the mind-body connection and that food really is fuel for our bodies.  Don’t get me wrong I still love ice cream so at times food can be for complete pleasure but moderation is key!   If you are going to spend hours working out everyday but not change your diet you are NOT going to see the changes you are striving to see in your body.  It really is that simply!

Be sure to check in on my workout tab!  I’m now doing Crossfit three days a week, as well as running with friends and teaching a bootcamp class.  Although I have been MIA this past month life has been really good and I’ll try to catch up a bit in each post!
