Morning thoughts…

Breakfast today was a delicious and filling bowl of oats and hazelnut coffee with cream:


Here’s a link to a clip I did last year on my local news on What to Eat After a WorkoutWhat are your favorite foods to eat after your workouts?

And, check out a great, thought-provoking post on “A Weight Lifted”… Diet Talk: How words can work against us…great topic for discussion…DO “dieting” thoughts lower your inspiration?

Have a greatย day!

    Great video and great advice ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I’m starving hungry before a work out – usually if I do a work out first thing, I’ll have half a banana with almond butter. I could probably do with eating more straight after my work out but sometimes I don’t feel that hungry… or else it’ll be lunchtime like yesterday ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the suggestion of drinking something… I should try having a smoothie after my workout and add a little protein powder.

  2. I loved your video and I couldn’t agree with you more! My favorite after workout snack is a small bowl of cereal and a 1/2 banana or a scoop of cottage cheese, handful of cereal and watermelon. I can’t have too much on my stomach before, so I try to grab a bar or something easy about 2 hours before, and then I eat right after. I also think that ‘diet talk’ is so interesting how it can spiral us down and actually leave us worse off. People think about all the things they ‘can’t’ have rather than those that they can and feelings of failure are eminent. I also know that those dang 100 cal packs or ‘low fat’ items just leaves one unsatisfied and wanting more! Great article.


  3. Great video! You seem really comfortable in front of the camera! I usually work out in the evening before dinner time, so normally I just eat my dinner meal after my workout. But if I work out in the morning, I like to have a small meal, like a slice of toast or a banana with a spoonful of pb, and then maybe an egg white and fruit afterwards. Great job! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. The video didn’t work well for some reason, but again it’s so cool that you get to do stuff like that! I have always heard protein is good post workout to build muscle, and coffee is good to prevent muscle soreness! Therefore, I usually have a little coffee with milk, and peanut butter and carrots!

  5. that looks sooooo yummy.

  6. You’re a natural on camera, Angie.

    Thanks for mentioning my blog post about diet talk. We are so off base about that in this country, yet few people realize it. Thank goodness for dietitians!

    Oh, and that breakfast looks yummy!!

    Great comments, everyone!

    Love your post-workout snack ideas!

  8. Great video-again,loved your accent:)
    Earlier when I used to go for a workout at 6am,I would just have a cup of milk.Now,that I have the luxury to exercise at 10am,I finish my regular breakfast by 9am and then have lunch by 12.30pm.

  9. Thanks for the links Angie! My fave post workout food is fruit and nutbutter! Particularly apples and chunky PB with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yum!

  10. Oh my gosh you are soooooo adorable!!! You’re a natural on the cam ๐Ÿ™‚ I totally agree with the sabotaging aspect of diet talk – the thing is, often we use the thought of starting a diet as a way to compensate for a “bad day”. We feel better making the resolution to start tomorrow (because we want to feel better) and when tomorrow comes, it’s sucks to find out you’re the same person you were yesterday and you’re the one going to have to put in the effort – whilst you secretly hope it would be some future version of you *lol*. That’s what happens to me, so I am definitely trying to mellow those thoughts out. Instead of diet talk, the focus is on “healthy” – fruits & veggies, enjoying some activity outside. Much more enticing!

      Thanks, Ruby!!

      Great statements – I so agree about having the focus on health, not diet. Dieting totally messes with our brains!

      Have a great day!
