What is water weight?
When you don’t drink enough water in the day, your body clings to the available water in your system. The body doesn’t know when it will get more so it stores it up. All this excess water shows up on the scale (another reason to distrust scales).
Make sure you drink 2 litres or 8 glasses of water a day!

Egg Sunny Side Up, Spinach & Mushrooms
This egg and veggie combo gives your body everything it needs in the mornings. The bread will keep you full until lunch and the protein from the egg will give you energy. Plus, nutrient-rich spinach is one of the best leafy greens to start off your day.
Plain Greek Yogurt, Blueberries & a Sprinkle of Cinnamon
If you have a sweet tooth, this one is for you. You will get a protein and probiotic boost from the Greek yogurt, and major antioxidants from the blueberries. Instead of using sugary honey on top, I sprinkled a pinch of cinnamon for a low-calorie kick.
Peanut Butter & Strawberries

Egg Sunny Side Up, Avocado & Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Being a self-professed avocado addict, this last recipe is my favorite of the four. Simply spread avocado on your bread, sprinkle some crushed red pepper, and top it off with an egg. The avocado will give your body healthy fats that promote shiny hair and glowing skin and the red pepper will give your metabolism a little boost too. If you’re a Sriracha fan, feel free to sub the spicy sauce for the crushed red pepper.

I do like to hit people-I like the explosion of power and energy, and the feeling that I am untouchable because I can hurt people. But I hate that part of myself, because it is the part of me that is the most broken. — Allegiant (via bradley-herondale)
