I'm really excited to get healthy and fit better in my clothes, but I'm having hard time staying motivated to work as hard as I need to. I eat better than I did, but not great. I'm exhausted so much of the time that I don't have the energy to get up and work out before the kids are up. They get up at 6:30 (and that's after playing in their room for at least half an hour). By the time they're all in bed at 8 I just want to straighten the house or relax, so exercise doesn't work out then either. I'm at the point where I get dressed in the morning and it just makes me feel yucky and instead of motivating me to work harder so that my jeans don't create rolls over the top, I get depressed and want to give up.
Sorry about the downer, but I'm still working on it. I got rid of the junk in our house, so when I feel snacky I'm snacking on healthy things. I'm hoping that a while of doing this will make enough of a difference that I'll start to feel like its not a losing battle and I'll regain some confidence and motivation.
All that being said, my current go to breakfasts are...
Egg Mcmuffins: egg whites and turkey sausage on sandwich thins (found in the bread isle)
some people use english muffins (which is probably a better idea) and canadian bacon
About 250 calories (depending on how many eggs you use)
Whole Wheat Bagel with fat free strawberry cream cheese (I spread mine pretty thin because that's how I like it)
About 280 calories (depending on how much cream cheese you use)
