You wouldn’t drive your car with an empty tank; don’t try to drive through the day on one.  If you want to make sure you have a great day start with a great breakfast.  The calories consumed early in the morning will kick start your metabolism and help you burn more calories throughout the day.

My 3 favorites:
huevos rancheros, scrambled eggs topped with jalapenos and taco sauce work in a pinch
2 egg salmon omelet
Kashi Blueberry Clusters cereal

Do you know all of the health benefits of jalepenos´╗┐?  Besides giving your mouth a kick they can help kick:
weight loss, migraines, cancer, arthritis, and inflammation and heart disease. 
They are loaded with anti-oxidants and were first cultivated in Mexico and Central America over seven thousand years ago.  Not only used for food they are also used as medicine too. During the 15th century chili peppers were introduced to the rest of the world as a substitute for black pepper, which was very expensive back then as it had to be imported from Asia. Ferdinand Magellan is said to have brought them to Africa and Asia, where they have long since been incorporated into cuisine and medicine. I can eat them every day.

Here’s how my training week went:

30 min strength training

5 miles

9 miles

5k – silly me.  I thought that lightening was OK as long as you couldn’t hear the thunder. NOT!  Do as I say not as I do; do not run during a lightening storm.
30 min strength training

5 miles


15 miles

“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.”

Only 8 more weeks until the Detroit Marathon!
