I am going to try to find more time in my day by getting up earlier. I had gotten into a bad habit of sleeping in late and going to bed later than I'd like. I need time for myself to run and blog and drink a cup of coffee once in a while - so I've got a plan to begin getting up at 5am. As long as I'm out the door by 730, it will be good.
I also need to take the time in the a.m. to plan my meals and pack them for the week. I know I am the most successful when I'm planning out what I'm eating so that I'm eating in a healthy way. I've got a lot of things planned and purchased for this week so it should be all good!
Next step is to get my treadmill to work. It would fit in my office, but would be too obvious, so I'm going to put it in an empty office next door and run in the middle of the day. I'm sure once I get it there, I'm going to wish I had it at home so I could run in the mornings! We'll see.
I've also started drinking a new breakfast blended smoothie that tastes really refreshing. The ingredients are:
1/2 cup Vanilla Almond Milk (I prefer trader joe's b/c other brands are way too sweet)
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (fat free)
Handful of fresh spinach (about a cup if you used one)
1/2 T almond butter
1 cup ice
Blend it all together and its FANTASTIC! I worked the recipe into my Livestrong Daily Plate and it returned the following nutrition facts:
