Mornin! I am discovering that working out in the morning is (1) not completely torturous and (2) wakes me up! I feel so much more "with it" by the time I sit down to work. Waking up to run for an hour is still out of the question, but 20 minutes of shredding with Jillian Michaels — I can handle that!
Check out the 30 Day Shred widget on the right-hand side of the blog for a summary of Day 7 of the challenge, and click on the Crooms’ 15 Mile Trail Race widget on the left-hand side of the blog for an update on my training.
Before working out, I knew I needed to eat something. Part of the reason why working out on an empty stomach makes you nauseous is that your stomach juices are just bouncing around. Eating a little bit of food gives you a "cushion."
1/2 a banana, a coffee, and a water.
After the Shred, I made an AWESOME brekkie!
I added about 1/8 cup of Grape Nuts + a little extra milk to my normal Hodgson’s Mills InstaBake Pancake Mix. The addition gave my pancakes a wonderful Grape Nutty flavor, some extra chew, and density.
Plus, strawberries and the other half of the banana.
And maple syrup for dipping.
I’m LATE! Have a great day!
If you workout in the morning, do you have something to eat first?
i only eat if it will be a lower-intensity work out. when i go to boot camp in the morning, it is very likely that I wouldn’t be able to keep my breakfast down (gross). but I think it definitely helps give you that bit of energy and keeps you from being STARVING post-workout.
i am loving the pancakes. if only someone in my house could cook….
happy tuesday(wish it were friday)!
