Workout: I taught a spin class and a cute story.
I used to get ready at the gym everyday pre-having my own treadmill at home. I became very good friends with Kate who got ready everyday at the same time as me. She is in her sixties and a rock star, she lifts more than me and her workouts are intense. After teaching spin I finally got to see my dear Kate and get ready together. As I was leaving she ran over with a little bday present and card in hand. She had been bringing it everyday to the gym for the last week hoping that I would finally be back to give me my present and a hug.
Good thing I skipped the whole make-up thing this morning because I was a water works mess after that.
Happiness comes from our relationships with others and eating breakfast.
As the title suggests I did not have breakfast this morning, I did have a banana but that is not enough for me so it doesn’t count. Stupid having a job and having to work got in the way of making my usual ginormous breakfast.
I know, the horror.
I was lifeless and I think my students were afraid of me.
I had a sudden flash back to my high school days and it scared me.
In my constant pursuit to lose weight as a teenager I would skip breakfast every day because I thought one less meal a day=skinny. It obviously worked because later on in the day I would binge on 4 ‘lean’ cuisines and a 1/2 gallon of ice cream with a Milky Way as a spoon.
I had no idea what I was doing when it came to nutrition and exercise. I even did the Atkin’s diet in high school. Janae without carbs=the devil in a bad mood.
I am just grateful to look back and realize how far I have come. Between not counting calories anymore, exercising for my health (and competition:), fueling my body with what it needs and not having those crazy ‘fear’ foods anymore ;) I am happier than I have ever been.
I will never ever miss you again. We were both effected by my bad decision. Please forgive me and I can’t wait for the next 124,987 breakfast’s together.

Did you try ‘dieting’ or restricting as a teenager? Did you know anything about nutrition when you were younger?
-I tried every diet there was and thought that diet’s were the only way to be happy and fit.
Do you ever miss breakfast?
-Not anymore unless I sleep in until lunch time.
Have you ever had any fear foods?
-Cheesecake, steak, cookies, hot dogs, french fries, pasta and cheese used to scare me big time because I thought I would wake up the next day 50 lbs heavier, little did I know that it is all about moderation oh and running. Candy was never a fear food but I know that it fears me.
