Looking for a quick and easy, on-the-go breakfast idea? I had some extra eggs on hand that needed to be used, so I made these. My son can grab them from the fridge and heat in the microwave for a quick breakfast before school.
Breakfast sausage, ham, bacon, or whatever meat you like…Veggies, if you like…if I add veggies, I sauté them first, especially spinach.
Coat a muffin tin with a bit of coconut oil and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put a tablespoon or two of meat and/or veggies in each cup. Scramble the eggs and pour into the muffin tin.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until firm.

Here is a blog post from a friend of mine about why women should be lifting weights. Thanks, Meredith!
Why Women Should Lift

Today’s workout was a quick couple rounds of conditioning. I first did my warm-up and mobility work, including some get-ups. Then, I did….
10 minutes of slide :30/:30
Then, I did kneeling heavy rope for :30/:15.
It was a good workout! Quick, and effective…just how I like it!

Saturday (5/26) - 6:30AM – up! Hot tea. 9:30AM (hungry) - chocolate banana pancakes – 10:00AM hot tea with 1/2 & 1/2, plus a trip to REI. 2:00PM – strawberries, bar & a cup of coffee w/ 1/2 & 1/2. 4:00 – first, easy outing on the kayaks! 6:00PM (very hungry) - takeout pizza from Tomaso’s. Evening – 1 Oberon.
Sunday (5/27) – 7:15AM - Up! Hot tea w/ 1/2 & 1/2. 8:30-9:45AM Bike ride. 10:00AM coffee w/ 1/2 & 1/2, 2 eggs over medium, leftover fish, and a handful of bacon. I know this sounds gross, but it tasted so good. (Maybe I was just really hungry?) Afterwards, I had a piece of dark chocolate. 2:00PM – snack of leftover mango salsa and organic blue corn tortilla chips. 4:30-5:15PM – bike ride with my husband on my new bike! 6:15PM – dinner – NY Strip (grass-fed), glazed carrots, green beans with diced ham, 1 piece of dark chocolate.
One thing another one of my clients and I talked about at the gym this week was how freeing it is once you get your eating figured out. I no longer look to food for comfort. I view food as fuel. I no longer eat “just to eat” or because something sounds good. I eat when I’m hungry. The way I feel about myself now that I’m happy with my fitness and my body, FEELS much better and lasts much longer than the few minutes of pleasure that comes with a bowl of ice cream.

Most Sundays during the cold winter months, I offer a free group workout for my current paying clients. I consistently have 6-8 regulars show up to join me. Since I typically work out on Sunday mornings, I figured that it would be more fun if I had some friends to join me….we could all suffer together!
Today we did :30 on/:30 off for 7 rounds (35 minutes):
TRX Rows – remember to keep your body and butt tight and rigid.
Mountain Climber (Slide) Variations – we did alternating, slow, elbows down, on the hands, and body saw with elbows on the bench.
Heavy Rope – double up, out/in, lateral right, lateral left, outward jump rope, grappling throw, your choice.
Speed Ladder – various speed ladder drills for footwork. (My clients need to be doing more of this!)
Plank – Prone, right, left, plank reach, right, left, prone.
