What's in Your Breakfast?

I love Friday mornings. Not only is it dress down at work and the last day before the weekend, but Friday mornings at work are all about the bacon sandwiches, and both the PAs and directors all partake.
Mine's always a bacon and mushroom sandwich on white, no butter, and the place where we get them from is absolutely amazing! Bacon sandwiches are best made at home on fresh bread with really thick cut meat, and this place has managed to exceed all expectations.




But my Friday morning sarnie is more than just enjoying the bacon - having a high-protein breakfast has been shown to reduce appetite during the morning, and snacking in the evening, and of course maintaining adequate protein  in the diet is essential for your body to rebuild damaged muscles following workouts.
During the rest of the week, my breakfast is usually either porridge (boosted with nuts and seeds) or my quick favourite, rye crackers with lean ham, cottage cheese and tomatoes - yum!

What's your breakfast?

Today was the final workout for C25K week 2, and as I'd hoped, it was certainly a bit easier than it felt on Monday. I'll admit I'm a little apprehensive about starting to double some of the run sections to 3 minutes, but I'm sure I'll be fine provided I've had enough sleep beforehand! :)

Have a great weekend!

Today's Workout (c25k W2D3):
Rowing (moderate, 30 spm) = 5 minutes
Walking (brisk, 3.8 mph) = 22 minutes
Running (slow, 4.9 mph) = 9 minutes
Strength (Squats, Bench Press, Lateral Pulldown) = 4x8 of each
