For those of you that may have missed my #52LittleThings posts so far – I am taking part in weekly challenges with AXA PPP healthcare to make small changes one week at a time to become healthier and happier!
So this week I have to say this is the one that makes me cringe and cower in the corner!
Throughout my weight loss journey previously and my current journey this is the one thing I fail spectacularly at every time!
Now for me it’s not really about getting up earlier to have breakfast its one of 2 things, the first being I am not the kind of person who can get up and eat straight away, in fact I have to be up between and 1-2 hours before I can even feel like a sniff breakfast never mind swallow it. The second thing is that I in fact dislike milk, along with sugary cereals with a passion and so eating of breakfast becomes a little limited as to what to have.
This is has made me lazy and now I don’t eat breakfast at all!
So why should I be eating a healthy breakfast?:
It can help to lose weight
By not eating breakfast my body will go into a fasting state and my metabolism may slow down which will affect how quickly my body burns calories.
Having more energy
By eating breakfast I would be feeding my body fuel, if I don’t fill the engine it wont work .. ans so this could be why I am tired and I struggling to focus.
I know skipping breakfast makes me moody. So by making a wise choice for breakfast I ought to save everyone from my grumpiness!
Setting a good example
Being a parent, I need to set my children a good example. that breakfast is important no matter what your age is.
So this week my plan is to look at finding a breakfast cereal which will help me stop running on empty and that I might enjoy like this one for a slow burning breakfast and most of all I have to get into a regular routine of sitting and eating breakfast!
