Breaking Bad Habits : Eating a proper breakfast

Being a natural morning person, you would think that I would take the time to eat a nutritional breakfast.  

The reality is that the time between rolling out of bed and the time I disarm the codes at work is only about thirty minutes which includes a ten minute commute.  

I only have enough time to get dressed and get out the door.  Then I’m thrown into my morning ritual and it doesn’t hit me until about two hours later that I’m starving.  

By then the grill is going and well as the ovens.  Breakfast usually consists of pizza, pasta, or sandwich…I know, gross.  

So to break this habit that surely keeps me from dropping a couple pant sizes, I stopped by the local store and grabbed a dozen eggs and a bunch of bananas.

As soon as I got to work at 6AM I would crack a few open, grab a saute pan and scramble.  Then throw in whatever left -overs there were at the restaurant.  Maybe some spinach or broccoli.  Or if I was lucky there would be some ham.  

I love scrambled eggs and because they are so cheap, I can cut down my food cost while cutting down my weight at the same time.  I also found that I stay full longer when i’m not eating garbage.  

Web MD had the following to say about eating a healthy breakfast

“Studies show that eating a healthy breakfast (as opposed to the kind containing doughnuts) can help give you:

  • A more nutritionally complete diet, higher in nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
  • Improved concentration and performance in the classroom or the boardroom.
  • More strength and endurance to engage in physical activity.”

I was near the end of 2017 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
