Standing ab exercises and breakfast!

on June 21, 2012

Morning!  I hope that you Wednesday was a great one!  The next couple of days and next week are going to be pretty long.  My boss starts her vacation today and I will be stuck at work from 8:00 to 6:00.  I guess it could be a whole lot worse…..I did just come back from my vacation. 🙂




  • 1 tortilla (100 calories)
  • 1 turkey link (110 calories)
  • 1 egg (74 calories)
  • 3 tbsp of egg whites (25 calories)
  • 1/2 of provolone cheese (25 calories)

Total: 334 Calories



I think that breakfast is probably my most favorite meal of the day.  It really is.  🙂  But do you eat breakfast?  And if so, what kinds of things do you eat??  Yesterday, one of my co-workers showed up with a coke and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Now, don’t get me wrong I love a good ole nut butter sandwich, but I really like to start my day off with a balanced meal.  What you eat for breakfast starts your day and gives you energy to cope with the morning rush.


Here are some of my favorite breakfasts:

  1. 1 slice of toast, one egg, and turkey bacon
  2. overnight oats in a jar!
  3. oatmeal and turkey bacon
  4. English muffin with 1 egg/egg white/spinach combo, turkey bacon and 1 slice of provolone cheese
  5. sweet potato wedges and eggs
  6. protein pancakes with nut butter and fruit
  7. any protein smoothie
  8. egg burritos with the fixings (1 egg, egg whites, spinach, scrambled turkey sausage)
  9. English muffin, nut butter and 1/2 banana
  10. I can’t think of ten!!


I found this on the internet yesterday:  Work Your Abs without Getting on the Floor.    They even give you three exercises that you can try!



I really love the show So You Think You Can Dance!   Mainly because growing up I really wanted to be a dancer!!  Yes, I did.  There is just something about a person being able to express and interpret a song.  Some of the talent on the show is freakin amazing!  But here is the thing….boy do they really rip them a new one on the show, when they cut them.   I know that the judges are professionals and have been doing what they do for a long time, but man!  I would be a puddle of mush if I was on the show.  Whit that said, it is better to rip the band-aid off instead of just prolonging something.  I think it was just the words they were using.  Most of the dancers were walking away saying how much of a failure they were.   They do have to get to the final 20 for the show, I guess. 🙂


I hope that you have a great day!!


Isn’t she awesome!

  1. THANK YOU so you think you can dance is my absolute favorite show, I haven’t been able to watch it because I haven’t had cable but I can’t wait to catch up with reruns. so good!

  2. My breakfast is always with coffee 🙂 It is usually is an egg or 2, except for today. Today was greek yogurt with cinnamon raisin toast. Sometimes I may make a waffle, toast, oatmeal or banana with chia & pb.

    I hope the longer days pass quickly at least! Breakfast for me varies but is pretty much never toast or bread-based – I much prefer fruit / cereal / yoghurt or smoothies 🙂
