Breakfast and Cardio

Well considering my internet has been down for 2 days i havent been able to to keep up on here so here is a few of my breakfasts lately:
PB Banana Egg White Pumpkin Oatmeal

Vanilla Yogurt, Hard Boiled Egg Whites, Chia Seeds, Flax Meal, Unsweetened Coconut Flakes, Strawberries
Vanilla Protein, Unsweetened Coconut Flakes, Spinach, Strawberry Oatmeal

Cinnamon, Mixed Berry, PB Oatmeal

Yes indeed my eats are random and I LOVE breakfast!

So lately Ive gotten many questions about what do do first: Cardio or Weights? WEIGHTS!!!
1. You want to have all your energy when lifting weights because then you are using all your power and blasting through your workout allowing you to build muscles. When your fatigued, you half a$$ your lifting and its a poor workout.
2. When you done lifting (if you push and kill yourself hard enough) you are in the "fat burning zone" by the time you reach your cardio session and hello thats what we all want-more muscles and less fat!

You may be tired by the time the end of your weight portion but get on your machine (treadmill, bike, ellipical, row, ski etc) and push yourself because that is how you change and see results. OR you could split your workouts-come back to your cardio later in the day. I like to get it done all at once because sometimes i go back to the gym for round 2!
