I try not to miss breakfast if at all possible. Although I currently have an aversion to getting up early I do love mornings. It always seems to be so peaceful and in my mind the air even seems to be still. I always say the air has not been stirred up yet. It is nice and quite at that time.
Although, it does not take long for the chaos to begin. I think my mind starts racing the moment I awaken. I am already thinking of what must be done at work before my rested eyes open. Then it is pretty much on. So I immediately I try to do a little meditation. I really am not good at meditation. Not at all! I could use a lot of help in that area.
I guess this is where a good routine comes in. I make the bed, take a shower (on non-workout days), listen to some informative podcast while I get ready, do my nails (yes I do my nails in the morning), eat breakfast and last but least I do a little cleanup.
My favorite and most filling breakfast is Oats. I use to eat Quaker instant oats. That was before I discovered oat groats and steel-cut oats. Sometimes these oats are referred to Irish oats. Once I had these, I never looked back. They are more labor intensive that regular oats, but well worth it. I usually cook a batch that will last all week in my crock pot overnight.
Of course you can put anything in them. Today I added a small banana, honey, blueberries and cinnamon. MMMMM. I switch up what I add, but this is still my choice for a quick breakfast.
If anyone can give me some advice on meditation practices I am all ears.
No work out planned today. It is muscle-building day (rest day).
Have a Fantabulous Day
