Happy Friday! Who has nice plans for the weekend? Iâ€™ve got the following on my calendar: a birthday get-together for our friend Isaac, a 5-mile race (wahoo!), and loads and loads of relaxation. Oh, and we need to buy a new dryer because ours went kaput on Monday.
Hah. Blurry jumpinâ€™ baby.
I mentioned this earlier in the week, but I am really trying to transition away from sweet breakfasts. I have noticed that I feel so much better if I eat protein and veggies as opposed to a ton of carbohydrates and fruit. I never used to have this problem, but I suspect it has something to do with the calorie burn of breastfeeding compared with baby-induced sleep deprivation. The last thing my body needs in the morning is a heavy dose of sweets.
Donâ€™t get me wrongâ€¦ Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll still enjoy my pancakes and waffles every now and then. But Iâ€™m going to try to time those treats on mornings that Iâ€™m rested and satiated (sometimes, due to breastfeeding, I literally wake up at 4 AM with a growling tummy and have to go get something to eatâ€¦ itâ€™s crazy).
So â€“ eggs, Crock Pot veggies, and toast. Makes me feel good from my head to my toes.
Whatâ€™s your go-to breakfast for feeling energized?
