Taking sides

I slept in a bit today & had to rush out the door to my run. It’s good that I rushed out because if I had time to think about it I might have talked myself out of it since I wasn’t exactly looking forward to running so late and being rushed today. I did 5.5 miles or so. When I got back home I ate a handful of cereal and did 30 Day Shred. I had to take a shower since breakfast since I was super sweaty. Gross.

By the time I ate it was close to 9:30am and I had been back from my run for almost an hour. This is why I was talking about 2 breakfasts a while back, I don’t know if it’s such a good idea to wait so long after waking up (and running) to eat. We’ll see how I feel later & on my next run to see if it had a negative impact on me.

Breakfast –

I have decided that I wasn’t super impressed with Barney Butter at first. I think it was because of all the hype around it. But, when I eat it side by side with PB I can really taste the difference! When I really compared it like that I can see what everyone has been raving about. I had both BB & PB on my oats today – separate sides though!


Q: Where does breakfast fit in your morning routine? Right when you wake up? After you get ready to leave? At work or school?

  1. Breakfast before I leave the house! I cannot have an empty stomach!

  2. After I run on my treadmill ad shower!

  3. i eat breakfast at work, but i live 5 minutes away from work. i just keep all my bfast + lunch foods at work.

  4. It depends for me. If it’s a work day I eat right after I get ready and am about to leave for work. If it’s not a work day sometimes I get up and eat first, then run 2-3 hours later or if I get up and run first thing (I still usually sleep in until 8 or 9), then usually will just eat an earlier lunch and skip breakfast.

  5. Breakfast is usually right before i leave the house, but some days, I’ll eat IN the car. Bowls of hot oatmeal and driving stick don’t mix so well,.

  6. I usually eat breakfast after I get to work, if I eat to early I get a weird nauseous feeling, so I put it off until I’ve been at work for a little while.

  7. I eat before I work out. If I don’t, I’m ready to pass out less than mid-run. I usually have the same couple of things, oatmeal with bananas, PB/nuts. Or, granola, yogurt and fruit. After I come home, I’m hungry! So, I will eat some cottage cheese, or a piece of fruit before my shower. That way, I can make it another 2 hours for lunch.

    The same applies on non-running days, but sometimes I’ll skip the mid morning snack if I’m not hungry. It might help you to keep the snacking/munching at bay later in the afternoon by eating more in the AM and throughout the day. Good luck! It’s tough coming up with a solution that works, it takes time to figure it all out.

  8. I wake up around 7 a.m., shower and all that jazz, and I’m in the kitchen by 7:30 making oatmeal. I eat much too quickly (because I’m always late for work), and I’m out the door by 8 a.m. I like this schedule, but it means I’m always hungry by noon!

  9. Thanks for letting me know what you all do, it’s helpful to see other people’s schedules to see if mine is “normal”. Ha.
