Breakfast and 2×4 Ab Workout

This morning’s breakfast was kind of a “cook whatever’s in the fridge” type of deal.  The great thing about veggies is that as long as you saute them, they go great with eggs.  Today’s veggies included some organic kale, asparagus, red onion, red bell pepper, and basil chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, spinach is like the Houdini of vegetables.  You can put it in a smoothie or virtually any meal, and you barely taste it…if you even taste it at all.  Kale, on the other hand is kind of like spinach’s knobby kneed thirteen year old cousin.  It’s still awesome and has a lot of great benefits, but you can definitely taste a difference when included in a meal/bev.

Kale, God love it.

To include kale in something like this, I will first steam it with the red onions in some type of a broth.  I had veggie broth on hand today.  This was also going to turn into a “scramble”, but at the last minute I made a game time decision and fried the eggs instead {with some Cajun seasoning}.  I heart dippy eggs.  Plus some avocado and coffee, because what’s breakfast without it?

I found this mug at World Market before Christmas.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make the purchase.  As a tall girl, I identify with the giraffe.  Plenty of people have referenced a giraffe when speaking about me over years, including my friends.  Who call me a “baby giraffe” when I’m in heels and have had one too many adult beverages…

And then this little motivational piece on the other side.

One thing I’ve really been needing to focus on lately is the mid section.  With the holidays, and sitting 24/7 with work, all I have to say is, thank goodness it’s not bikini season yet.  Like I’ve mentioned earlier, I can get bored with ab workouts.  So to make sure I get through the whole thing, I like to break it up.  Just like with this workout below, take two moves at a time and run through three sets of each before moving on to the other pair of ab workouts.
