My morning solitude, since school has been out and the kids are home I still wake up pretty early and I’m not the type of person to just stay in bed, when I’m up I’m up.
I’ve gotten into this routine that when I get up I quietly make my way to my backyard and sit in my patio chair just listening to the birds. My cat comes with me all the time. Then my husband usually finds me and it’s such a nice relaxing way to wake up and start our day. It’s what we call “our quiet time”. My kids are early risers too so it doesn’t last too long but I love it anyway.
What’s your morning solitude?
Anyway enough about that, moving onto food, I’m on this low carb/low fat diet and this past month I’ve let things slide. No I haven’t had pasta or bread but I’ve been eating cereal, yogurt, fruit ok and chips.
I know those are pretty normal food choices but I really need to limit and completely cut out the freaken chips.
I see everyone else eating them and I want some. I think I’m going to have to leave the room when they open a bag.
Today I’m going to cut back on my dairy and have just 2 pieces of fruit and a lot more green veggies. I have to retrain my brain.
This is my breakfast:
Source or Zero yogurt
Bran cereal – 1/2 cup
Granola – 2 Tablespoons- it’s loaded with carbs, yup I know that
I don’t like eggs so my breakfasts are very limited.
