My word of the year is Epic and one of the things that I've been failing at in an epic way has been breakfast. I don't know what it is, y'all. I blame my parents (they're not reading the blog, so, might as well). The morning routine was simple: breakfast would magically appear in front of me. Now, I don't have that option since I'm the one that makes the magic happen.
It all came to a head recently when the Frog Princess pointed out that I needed to have breakfast when she had breakfast because I needed to be "healfy and strong". Folks, she's right. I need to be healfy. My running shoes are ready to roll but if I don't have sufficient morning energy, I can guarantee you that the run won't get done. Coffee can only take me so far.
Which is why I'm digging my one-two punch: BelVita Mini Breakfast Biscuits and V8 Veggie Blends. I pour myself a glass of Purple Power (my current favorite) after making my girl's breakfast and then while I'm packing her lunch, I nibble on the breakfast biscuits.
Then, while she's getting ready, I grab the digs that I picked up at Target while grabbing my groceries and voila! I'm ready to throw on the running shoes and when she gets picked up to head to school, I have already had my morning pick me up and I'm ready to hit the pavement. On Saturdays, I throw my veggie juice drink in a tumbler and eat my biscuits on the way to ballet class. And of course, I share since we both take class at the same time.
I love showing her that I'm committed to staying healthy. I'm also committed to saving money! Did you guys know about Cartwheel offers at Target? If you say yes, you must explain why you hadn't told me! I've been saving some dough lately. And when you pick up the items for your new morning routine, you can too! Save 10% on BelVita Breakfast Biscuits and probably on a lot of other things you need to grab. If you're shopping at the end of the month, this offer for V8 starts on 2/23.
So, am I the only one that's struggled to get with the breakfast program? Do you have a morning routine?
