I was thinking apples, a piece of whole wheat bread with peanut butter
and water? Im not sure yet, so please suggest anything

-go on a run-
Im going to run to my old middle school, do a mile on the track,
then run back home. Its a good work out cause i have to go up/down hill

Answer on Fix my morning routine?

I like your attitude. I have a couple of suggestions. simply suggestions - you seem to have it together pretty good.
1) Oatmeal - get a box of regular, unflavored oatmeal. You can put a package or 2 of equal or something else like that in it to give it a really good flavor.
2) Bike is a great idea - for variety as well as for transportation. it is beautiful out this time of the year - get out and enjoy! Maybe you could find a used one in classified ads?
3) Eat what your mom cooks for dinner. you will need a good variety of veggies, etc. and moms seem to know how to knock out that really good stuff anyway. Use Portion Control!!!!
4) Do not buy a scale. look at yourself in the mirror - feel how you feel. do not tie this to a number.
5) skip the mayo. it is pure fat. or if you must, use very sparingly
