Breakfast yummm

First a recap on last night.  I headed to the gym to get my run in. I had wanted to run outside but it was raining, and not the usually Washington rain, but really coming down. Plus at the gym I get unlimited access to TV. We only have the local channels at home so its nice to get a little more channels to keep me entertained. I did 5.25 miles before heading home and realizing I only have 4 more planned runs on my training schedule before my half. FOUR more runs! How did it get here so quickly! The plan for today is actually to do an unplanned run of about 3-4 miles, I want to do some more speed intervals. Something about doing them just make me feel stronger, after that I am going to do an arm circuit and some ab work.

And on to breakfast talk - years ago I was not a breakfast person at all, well  unless you count a big bowl of sugar cereal or a Venti Latte full of fat. Since starting my weight loss journey I have come to embrace breakfast and actually enjoy it.  Coffee has been part of my breakfast since college - seriously those of you who live without it....I don't know how you do it.  My mother in law gave me this nifty travel mug for my birthday. It works perfectly with my Keurig coffee maker and saves me a ton of money not purchasing lattes. Of course since I stopped going to Starbucks so religious I have received 2 free coffee post cards......hmmmmm I wonder if they are tracking my every move. 

Lately breakfast has been a super smoothie, but today I opted for the super easy and portable Greek Yogurt and Granola! Delish!  I used to get these crust less quiche at Trader Joe's they were awesome and easy to reheat at work. But for the past 6 months I have not been able to find them when I go. Hopefully the will bring them back - they were amazing for breakfast.

Are you a breakfast person? What is your quick go to breakfast?


  1. I am not a breakfast person. But I have been seeing posts about Chobani yogurts lately and my doctor suggested them. I will have to try them.

  2. You could probably make your own crustless quiche at home in a muffin tin, and bring one to work every day.

  3. MMMmmm...I love pineapple Chobani for breakfast!

  4. @ Rose - I did that for a while, I just need to get back into that habit! I love making them with Chorizo sausage - yummmmy~!

  5. My breakfast crave these days has been a pan fried egg with a slice of whole wheat toast.

    @Jen Chorizo sausage.mmmmmmmmm

  6. I don't drink coffee! Never have, I don't like the smell of it. I used to drink a ton of diet coke, and I still drink SBUX iced tea, but not in nearly the same quantity since my WLS.

    Funny that I don't seem to be affected by the caffeine, I'm addicted to everything else! :)

  7. Only 4 more runs! I had the same, the last weeks before the half flew by, before I knew it, the day had come.

    I always have eaten breakfast but not a big one. Usually some yogurt with cereal and fruit (always an orange or kiwi). I live on coffee :) but strangely at breakfast I drink Earl Grey tea.
