My Deep Love Affair With Eggs

Ahh, general mood upturn from yesterday. Sorry for the bummers. But, that's my life... I've been going strong for a number of days, up to a week, and then BAM, like a ton of bricks, I feel slammed to the floor.

But here is my new day. Always a chance to start things off right.

Wanted to share a picture of my pretty, colorful breakfast!

Egg, egg white, veggies with some ketchup and strawberries! Putting it on a pretty orange plate helps - I really like pretty food. And it is so much easier to make healthy food pretty (because it is not all beige and oily!).

I really, really, really love eggs for breakfast. Benefits of Eggs. Eating one yolk a day will NOT affect your cholesterol (except for the better, maybe!) and is chock full of protein and vitamins. Eat 'em up!

Down a little in weight today, which is nice. Going to continue that trend for the rest of the week by doing my dog walks, a strength/yoga routine every day, and eating moderately/clean/mostly paleo. It is a tried and true system. I gained weight last week because I was weak, sad, stressed and ate a bunch of wheat-y junk. It was no fluke I gained.

Being back on track yesterday AND writing that post, venting a little, getting the dark thoughts out.... I feel 100 times better today. :)

Downloaded a few older Jillian Michaels podcasts to listen to (since I am all caught up on the recent ones) and ready to head out for my walk. I love her, I really do. I used to not like her so much as a Biggest Loser trainer, but her podcasts really speak to me. She is a proponent of eating quality, clean food and not lying to yourself. She doesn't like bullshit and seems to genuinely care about the people who call in. It's a nice way to start my day - by listening to a no-excuses hour long show focusing on good physical and mental health.

Namaste, my friends.
