I’m particularly fond of the two tips for this month, focusing on gratitude and protein (I’ll admit that’s quite the combo, but a pair I really like!).
Tip 1: Write down everything you’re grateful for at the end of the day. I would modify this and say to even write down a few things you’re grateful for at the end of the day. Everybody emphasizes thankfulness in November right around Thanksgiving, but this is a spirit that should be present all year long!
Tip 2: Eat some protein for breakfast – or at least eat some breakfast. There are two types of people in the world: those of us who wake up hungry, and those who don’t. Because I wake up hungry, eating breakfast is not a big challenge for me. I have shared exactly what I eat here. Since writing this post, I saw another trainer who encouraged me to decrease the oatmeal to 1/2 c. and to increase the egg whites to 4-5 eggs. Normally I bake or whip two egg whites into my oatmeal, and I hard boil another two egg whites to eat with breakfast each day.
