i've heard that u actually eat less calories per day if u get a decent breakfast. also i've heard that breakfast should be the biggest meal of the day then lunch and dinner should be the smallest.

this morning,i had a cup of coffee, a slice of banana bread with pecans and 2 pieces of persimmon (fruit).

what did u eat for breakfast this morning?

Just two pieces of toast for me - find that the meds make me slightly queasy in the morning. Can also eat them on the way to the train station that way.

About an hour ago I had a light, fat free yogurt. Mostly needed using up. I'm already hungry again. Missed my multivitamin yesterday. I think the chromium in it helps suppress my appetite.

Being a night shift worker, I think of breakfast as the first meal of the day, no matter when I get up. That way your metabolism gets woke up. So, whenever I go on a diet, I have to switch times around.
Like that rule about not eating after 8pm, I have to switch to not eating 3 hrs before I go to bed.

I think I read somewhere the best time to eat the first meal of the day is within an hour of getting up. So, that is what I strive for.

Hi Fleurette,

I am unable to work right now due to having broke my foot, and it is still healing. But I still tend to be a night person at heart, and stay up til the wee hours.

Today for breakfast, I had a salad with chicken, and cool tea. It wasn't iced, because I didn't have any ice.

Hey Fleurette,

I wish I had grand story to tell of how I broke my foot, but actually, it is rather boring.

One day as I was moving out of my apartment, I was carrying a good sized load to the car, and missed completely stepping off the curb. Usually, because of the arthritis in my left knee, I always step off the curb with my left foot, but on this day I started to step off with my right foot. So, my brain seemed to decide this was wrong and pulled the foot back, and instead, my right foot (toe to heel) landed half on and half off the curb just past the ball of my foot, and then we sorta rolled off the curb. And, right before we left, I also stepped badly when I almost tripped over one of the dogs.

After checking out of the apartment complex, we drove to my dad's.
That night I iced my foot and ankle, and took ibuprofen that night. Over the next few days it got better each day, and other than every once in a while it felt fine.

I was off work, between contracts, for 35 days or so, and stayed with my dad most of it. It worked out well, visiting my dad then, because he had been getting confused alot and wasn't eating, and just needed some attention. And, he had fallen, so I got to change dressings on him and we got to hang out together.

Then when my next contract started, I went back to working full-time, and 12 hour shifts, mostly on my feet, and my foot started hurting more and more.

It was about 6.5 weeks between when I broke it and when I went to the doctor and found out that I broke it. And another 6 weeks until it was properly diagnosed, with better x-rays thanks to insurance issues. In addition it has been slow to heal.

How are you doing Fleurette?

Leigh

My mood is not bad Fleurette, pretty good today actually.
I don't think I have had an anxiety attack for a long while,
thank goodness. Those are scary. I'm so sorry you have to suffer
through them so often.

Peanut butter (reduced fat) and jelly on wheat bread sandwich,
with a diet mountain dew, for my morning caffeine kick.
