Two Right Feet
What are the things you need to do within 30 minutes of waking up to ensure your day gets off on the right foot? What happened the last time you didn’t do one of these things?
i don’t understand people who skip breakfast. after all it’s the most important meal of the day, right? i like mine to be balanced or i feel dirty for the rest of the day- that means fruit, grains and protein. i’m not sure what typical americans eat for breakfast, but in my house normal breakfast meals mean avocado slices in naan (my mom gets them from costco), taquitos (also from costco) or some sort of foreign pancake. i don’t think i’ve ever skipped breakfast because i value my happiness too much to have my day ruined by a grumbling stomach. on the weekends, it takes me nearly an hour to get out of bed, and once i’m awake for so long without food, i’m almost signing myself up for a bad day. eating breakfast at 11 means having lunch at 3 and then my 7 o’clock dinner is ruined. you’d think that skipping breakfast and heading straight to “brunch” means less food, but it turns out i feel better about eating more fat and sugar. i use quotation marks because i end up getting hungry again and having lunch anyways, which defeats the whole purpose of brunch, right?
