Monday Morning Blues

I know most people dread Mondays, but for me it's a promise of a new day (Paula Abdul :D).  Its a chance to start off fresh, make a change for the better.   Just outside that doorstep is a world full of opportunities just waiting to be taken.

I started my day off with the BEST and MOST IMPORTANT meal of the day with my regular oats, cinnamon, apples (you can add fresh blueberries or even strawberries), Walden Farms 'Apple Butter' mixture (just delicious) & Cookies & Cream ISO100 Protein Shake by Dymatize.

NEVER SKIP BREAKFAST.  There is a reason why they call it breakfast.  Let's break down the word - "Break" & "Fast".  You are essentially "breaking" the "fast" for those 6-8 hours of sleep you are getting with the meal.  You never want to wait too long to have it.  Otherwise, when you FINALLY do feed your body with food, that food will get absorbed and some of it stored as fat.  Not a good thing, especially if your goal is fat loss/weight loss.  Think of breakfast as a good thing, as it will actually help you in the long run.

I hate it when people tell me they skip breakfast or they wait a couple hours after to eat.  How is your body going to change if you are not willing to make the small changes?  Yes eating less than your caloric intake of the day will help you loss weight but is damaging your body at the same time.  YOU NEED to make sure you are not starving yourself.  Afterall, those carbs...those proteins...those fats are the nutritional building blocks of how your body composition actually turns out.  Make a change this week.
