• Seeking New Breakfast Ideas

    January 14, 2013

    Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start and you’re not thinking about joining P.A.M.C. (Pugs Against Mondays Campaign). Murphy was named one of the 10 Pugs To Watch In 2013 because of his involvement with the organization.

    I started my day with a two-ingredient pancake with blueberries and a couple of scoops of peanut butter spread on top. I almost whipped up a French Toast Breakfast Scramble, but then I decided I should probably switch it up a little. I’ve been eating the same breakfast over and over again, but now I really think it’s time to add some variety to my morning meal. I would love to hear what you guys typically eat for breakfast. I need to get out of my breakfast rut!



    The fitmixer Bootcamp started today! Woohoo! Today is actually a rest day for me, so I’m going to do the fitmixer test tomorrow. I love doing “before” and “after” assessments to see how I’ve progressed, so I’m definitely not going to miss this workout. For those of you who are doing the bootcamp as well, what’d you think of the first workout?

    • Monday: Off

    I love nothing more than a big old egg scramble with tons of veggies! I usually douse it with hot sauce and have it with a side of buttered toast. I notice a lot of your breakfasts are sweet, so maybe mixing it up with something savory would help break the rut?
