quick breakfast ideas and a recap!

On Saturday, after my slower morning run my husband did 5 miles at a 7:50 pace!! Woohoo for him! Our oldest said he wanted to put on his running clothes and go race Daddy. We took him up on the offer and they headed out and our youngest and I followed with the jogging stroller! They started off and although he's only 4, he has perfect form and was going really fast-I can brag about my boys, right?! I was yelling for him and whistling...he loved it! Daddy tried to beat him, but he was having a hard time keeping up! Crazy, right? So, my four year old did over a mile right along side his Daddy and he made our whole family PROUD! So proud! Can't wait for his 1K race this weekend...he's going to do SO great! As for breakfast, today I decided to try a few new things and they were huge hits!
First was a waffle sandwich! The boys LOVED them!
I bought HEB(a grocery store here in Texas) brand whole wheat and flax mini waffles
neuftchatel cheese or cream cheese
homemade strawberry preserves
Boar's Head oven roasted turkey breast

I toasted the waffles, broke them apart-they are mini so they make little bite size sandwiches, perfect for little hands! Stacked the cream cheese, little bit of preserves and a slice of turkey! Topped with remaining waffle and the boys enjoyed every bite! They said they wanted me to make waffle sandwiches EVERY day! Ha!

and excuse these horrible phone pics but this was my breakfast: I should photograph on white plates but instead we were using a Batman and a monkey plate! HA!
spinach eggs!
1 egg, 1 egg white-beaten
1/2 cup chopped frozen spinach-thawed and drained
Mix and add to skillet. I made mine omelet-style but since I am terrible at making perfect omelette's, they come out looking like scrambled eggs! Ha!
I added 1/2 slice of provolone cheese
It was SO good! You can probably make these in muffin pan and freeze for easy to grab breakfast! I'm sure they would freeze and thaw perfectly...I'll try it and let ya know!

Today's Workout: I will most likely do a Jillian Michaels workout with my boys-they like to do mountain climbers...hilarious to watch! And then possibly a late evening run after my hubby gets home from work!

I'm really kicking my diet into gear this week! I stood in my friend's wedding a few weeks ago and her wedding was beautiful but when I saw the proofs from her photographer...I had a pitty party for myself. I picked myself apart and saw every flaw possible, in EVERY picture. Anybody else do that? So, I'm working on my self-esteem issues every day, but as for my diet...I know it could use more fiber and protein, so this week I'm ready to shape it up! Hopefully that'll mean some great, healthy recipes to share with all of YOU! Get ready...

I think everyone does that, or at least I do ALL.THE.TIME! Nobody else would notice the little things that seem like a big deal to you. From the picture you shared I thought you looked amazing!

Loving the omelete recipes, looks delicious! Looking forward to any new recipes you share. :)

Stop beating yourself up and embrace the beauty! YOu have come a LONG way and look amazing. :) But I do understand.
Those recipes look tasty. I bought spinach last week with the intent of adding it to eggs. Fail. Never did it!
