Starting off on the right foot

Woo hoo! This morning, I managed to get up at 5:30 and do 15 minutes of yoga before making breakfast! I used a McDonald’s DVD that I got a while back when they were passing them out free with their salads. I liked it and it definitely invigorated me, I just found that the ‘virtual trainer’ went a little faster than I would like, especially when I’m trying to stretch and increase my flexibility. So I may look for a different yoga tape next time, I think I have a few lurking about… I calculated that I burned 43 calories doing this exercise, which isn’t much, but I reminded myself that 43 a day can add up to 300 a week, or 1200 a month, and 14,000 a year, which is the equivalent of 4 pounds! I love thinking of it that way…

Breakfast this morning was two pieces of whole wheat toast with preserves (one blueberry, one strawberry), two poached eggs and 1/2 cup of V8 juice. It felt good to get a vegetable serving in at breakfast, I have been struggling to meet the recommended servings per day so I thought I would give this a try 😉

On the way to work, I had some coffee with 1/4 cup of light soymilk…
Happy Tuesday!
