Pancakes for Breakfast

Good morning and happy Saturday!

I started off my morning with a hard and challenging workout, but definitely fun. It was a quick moving workout so I didn’t get bored.

I completed the ZWow#51. The Purely Twins introduced me to her a few months ago by posting about how they loved her workouts. She’s extremely hardcore and goes through the whole workout with you in each video every Thursday! This one focused on toning, stretching, and using many other muscles you might not use much. I have a feeling I may be sore tomorrow! The dive bomber pushups are a killer! But the workout looked like this:

  • 100 Strict mountain climbers
  • 20 Pike leg lifts
  • 10 Pushup burpees
  • 20 Pike leg lifts
  • 10 Pushup burpees
  • 20 Pike leg lifts
  • 10 burpees
  • 50 squat pulses
  • 10 dive bomber pushups
  • 50 squat pulses
  • 10 dive bomber pushups
  • 100 Strict mountain climbers

Then I completed Lori and Michelle’s core cardio plank interval workout which is really awesome! It’s turned into one of my favorites!

Breakfast

My appetite was feeling a bit like pancakes this morning. So I was surprised with some pancakes made by my dad! Thanks dadSmile. And I put coconut oil and almond butter on top of the 2 pancakes. Delicious.

pancakes and apples

And a fried egg for some added protein!

The sun is actually shining a bit today (it has been very dreary over here in Alabama), so I’m hoping to do something that involves with being outside.


Question of the day

Do you like working out first thing in the morning?

Pancakes or waffles? I’m a waffle girl, but pancakes are delicious!

Costco Run

Did a Costco run this afternoon and while I was there, I looked for some new glasses frames and the Canon EOS 7D. I absolutely love that camera and am really looking into it. And I also really need some new glasses frames because I haven’t updated mine in such a long time, a few years, actually. 5 years to be exact.

Anyway, I stopped at Publix right before Costco, which was a good idea because I found this amazing new hummus…Or at least it is new to me! The flavor was unreal and it even tasted really delicious with carrots!

Snack&Things

Then I decided to dig into the lettuce and make a little salad.

In the mix: Chopped salad greens, orange tomatoes (new to me?), boiled egg, chopped apple, and organic yogurt dressing (no preservatives, all natural). And I cooked a few sweet potato fries as well.

It was good…but I needed more, obviously! How about a small stuffed bellpepper? Yes, please!

This was so good! Costco pre makes stuffed bell peppers and they taste amazing. The lady was giving out a sample and we just had to get them!


Question of the day

Do you like hummus? Have a favorite flavor?
