At the Crossroads

Wow, this has been the week of awesome workouts. My trainer and I have somehow just clicked all of a sudden, and by the time I leave the gym I feel like I've had the best workout since the last time I was there.  It's a great feeling, and I am choosing to believe that it means a new season of wellness has begun for me.  Spring is here, summer is on the way, and the heat is being turned up!

Another reason I'm feeling that way is my nutrition.  I am so so so so sick and tired of my food. I never thought I would be tired of eating egg whites and spinach on toast for breakfast, but here we are. Protein smoothie? Ick. Even my favorite oatmeal snack is getting the evil eye. I need a change.  So, I'm spending some time eating less strategically and more intuitively until I sort it all out. Since I have some pretty specific fitness goals for the months ahead, I may enlist the help of a sports nutritionist to help me. You know how it can give people great advice all day long but when it comes to your own nutrition, things can get cloudy.  I need an objective perspective.

Anyway, what I'm getting at is this reminder: the seasons are changing, and so should your wellness. Are you getting out of a rut like me? What do you do to shake things up? What are your goals for the summer, and will your current plan get you there? I hope you'll join me this weekend in some soul-and-goal-searching, and meet me at the cross roads of Been There and Now Doing This.

Have a great weekend!  Good day!

You don't have to eat breakfast food for breakfast. Many times I am eating turkey and light cheese or even leftover steak and veggies. My fav is Greek Yogurt with fresh fruit and chopped Pecans. You can add a bit of Fiber One or the healthy granola (Udi) for crunch. It's all your food groups in one bowl.

Agreed! Only I do the opposite...I want to eat breakfast food at every meal! LOL

Yeah I love breakfast foods too. I am loving broccoli and eggs in a tortilla. Or whole wheat waffles with peanut butter. Change is always good, right!
