Aye Aye Aye!

So I promise that I haven't forgotten about you Skinny readers...I really have just forgotten that it was Thursday for the past couple of weeks! And then I remember on Friday and I don't want to take up Frugal Friday's room to post- I am sorry!

I guess it is only too appropriate though- I have not been feeling 100% lately and thus my exercise and nutrition goals have kind of gone out the window...nuts. It is far too hot here and my runs are getting more and more difficult, but I am still slowly trucking on. One thing that has really helped me lately (I know this isn't new to most people but I hadn't made myself do it yet) was eating protein in my breakfast. Too often I am satisfied with a bowl of Fruity Pebbles or an applesauce for my morning meal...and then I wonder why I feel sluggish in the mornings!?!?!

So my challenge to you is to try and include protein in your breakfast this upcoming week and see if it makes a difference for you- do you have more energy? Are your workouts easier? Are you just plain nicer than normal in the morning hours? Try some protein and see what happens...

And I PROMISE that next Thursday I am going to have a really great post!

I'm just as glad you did post this morning, Alee...because it's been hot, and I have not been in a cooking mood this week. I still don't know what today's FFF will be...if we have one. ;)

I love protein in the morning. It keeps me going all morning long. Mark is an expert at making fluffy scrambled eggs" out of EggBeaters.

I have recently really enjoyed a nice egg over medium atop a slice of whole wheat toast. Yum! And it does help me to feel energized all the way until lunch time. :)

We'd love to hear from you!
