Break that fast!

I always eat breakfast - even if it makes me late to work. Like today. I've been having serious motivational issues and find myself sleeping in past 8:30 AM regularly these days. Gone are the days I woke up at 6:30 AM to eat breakfast and head to the gym before getting to work at 9 AM.

The problem with getting to work late is that I get out of work late. And then the next day, I make excuses to get into work late again, since I was at work late the day before. Is this what it means to be in a rut????

Anyway, here's a picture of my breakfast from last Friday.

yakisoba
I ended up not getting to work until 10 AM or so that day, but boy, was it satisfying to start my day off with INSTANT YAKISOBA, supplemented with yummy greens. It so does not look like breakfast in the Western sense, but Asian people eat all sorts of strange things in the morning. We've traditionally treat it like any other meal and less like some of the Western sweet snack meal. Things are changing in Japan, and the Western breakfast is getting more and more popular, but the traditional breakfast will always have a place in Japan, I'm sure. I can ascertain because despite my love for donuts and waffles, done deep, I'm a yakisoba-in-the-morning kinda girl!

Yeh, I'm going back to my roots and enjoying instant noodles for breakfast!

Might as well pull out the big "pink cushion" and sit on it and eat Yakisoba and watch cartoons.
