Three Things Thursday: The Question Edition

1. What do you guys like to eat for breakfast. I usually eat the same things for about 4 months and then switch it up. I have been eating bran flakes, flax seed, whipped PB, almond milk, and a banana for over 4 months, so I am ready for a change. I like quick and easy :) I usually use about 350 cals, but I am flexible :)

2. Do you guys set a workout schedule for yourself, or do you decide daily what you are going to do? I usually know how many miles I want to get in for the week, and a plan to attack those miles, but then switch things up depending on my day at work. I think with the holiday season coming, and all the evening events that entails, I need to make a calendar of what I want to get done each day. Then I will adjust my schedule accordingly so that I can get in that day's workout.

3.  What is your favorite winter meal? I love soups...and can't wait to start making them on a weekly basis :)


  1. I didn't used to be much of a breakfast eater. Now I always eat breakfast, just not a very large breakfast. I usually have cereal (post shredded wheat spoon size--not frosted) and skim milk. If I'm heading out the door for a morning run or bike ride, I'll have some fruit with that--half a banana or peach or some strawberries. This lasts me until noon-ish.

    I always do my weights at the gym on Tues & Th evenings. My Praise Moves (yoga) is a class on Fri morning. The rest are rather ad hoc. Three cardio sessions are a must. Usually running or biking. Since my toes are injured right now, running is out, so I've been doing a workout video (Sweating to the Oldies). It's still nice enough to bike, but I'm hoping my foot heals up soon so I can run again!

    I love soups too. Tomorrow it's supposed to be 20 degrees cooler, so I'm making a crock pot Osso Bucco--an Italian beef stew.

  2. Lately I have been eating oatmeal with splenda and a banana for breakfast. On the weekend I usually make an omelet with egg beaters and veggies.

    I love your idea about making a work out calendar. I have this eating healthy thing down, but my working out it too sporadic.

    I also love soup. I love low-fat chicken and vegetable soup.

    I also wanted to tell you that I gave you the Versatile blogger award. So check out my blog and check it out and see what you can do to pass on the award if you wish!

  3. I've never been a breakfast eater, but since I've started trying to get healthier, I've been making sure I eat it - I think it makes a huge difference! During the week I usually have a cup of yogurt - boring, but easy to bring to work. Before the couple of races I've done so far, I have eaten a yogurt with a cup of cereal mixed in. On weekends I like to make an egg white omelette with whatever odds and ends I have from the week's leftovers - like this week for my DDGbD recipe, I made a vegetarian cheesesteak with portobello mushrooms, onion, and green pepper - REALLY looking forward to that deliciousness in an omelette Saturday morning!

    My workouts are pretty routine nowadays, I do my C-to-5k training and then a few rounds on the elliptical three days a week, and then on the other days I either go to the gym and just do the elliptical and walk around the track, or I walk around my neighborhood and do some time on the Wii Fit (my newest obsession is skateboarding - it's so fun!).

  4. I have a workout plan till April next year when I have planned to do my first half marathon. I try to stick to it as much as possible which most of the times work. I try to plan my appointments around my workouts but if that isn't possible the appointments comes first, people are more important than workouts.
