Pancakes!

I still can’t post any comments!  There are so many things I want to say on all of your blogs!! And thank you for all the kind words on my blog!  I feel like we are all in this together!

Oh, well, I’ll just have to keep checking back.

I started the day off with oatmeal with protein powder and a banana:

Then I headed out to run.  I felt so much better today.  I got in 4 miles.  My body didn’t feel as stiff and thick today.

After getting everyone else in the house up and on their way for the day, I fixed myself some eggwhite/oatmeal pancakes:

I put a thin layer of natural peanut butter on three of them and then a smear of Nutella on the fourth.  I drizzled it all with a little syrup and found myself in pancake heaven!

I could do without the syrup next time, but I just had to try it!  It’s been so long since I’ve had syrup, I had to see if I missed it.  Nope, I don’t.

Here’s what the batter looks like after turning the oats to flour and letting them soak in the egg whites for 30-45 minutes:

Pour them in the pan.  I do them one at a time in a little pan because I’m too lazy to wash a big pan!

After letting that settle, I headed downstairs with Justin to work out.  It felt good to lift weights with carbs in my system and ENERGY!

  • 3 sets of:
    • Lunges – 25lb DB in each hand – 10ea leg
    • Overhead press – 20lb SB in each hand – 15 reps
    • Bent Over Rows – 35lb barbell – 15 reps
    • Jumping Jacks – 1 minute
  • 3 sets of:
    • Crazy/Full Body Burpee:
      • 15lb DB in each hand
      • Go down to plank, do a pushup, one armed row (each side), come back up, bicep curl, overhead press, tricep extension and then reverse it all on way down
      • 10 reps
  • One pull up unassisted just to see if I could.  I want to be able to do these!
  • One set of hanging leg raises
  • One set of T-bar rows just to see what it was like (Justin was setting it up for himself and I had never done them before).

Great day so far!  I feel energized and like myself again!
