Finishing What You Started

Hey friends!

So, today was one of those days where you get excited about a workout and you go start it…but you just want to quit because burpees ARE NOT easy.

Or maybe, I’m the only one that has those days.

I hope I’m not the only one.

Workout

3 hours after lunch…

I warmed up for 7 minutes and did some dynamic stretching before I got into my workout.

First, I took the challenge and did the M-100 Workout by Mike and guess who’s in the video??? Cassey!!! Love her!

What’s in the workout?

The Workout- M100’s
Burpees w/ pushup- 10
Mountain Climbers- 40
Double Pump Squats- 10
Rounds = 3
With an additional 10 burpees to make it 100 reps total.

Then I rested and got my mind set for the next 6 rounds of this workout that I put together. I got inspired from another workout I saw, but changed a few things for it to meet my standards.

to Press

And boy, was that the hardest 40 minutes of my life. Rest as much you need. I rested about 2-3 minutes between each round.

But I finished it!! All 6 rounds, a sweaty mess, tired, but felt awesome Open-mouthed smile

Lunch

Okay, now we can get to lunch.

Lunch was kind of a fail. I would have liked a salad and some meat or something, but I really didn’t feel like preparing it.

So I ate homemade potato, egg, and onion salad. Plus an apple and almond butter on the side.

Good, but not the best.

Okay, time to go make dinner!

And enjoy the rest of my Saturday Smile

Do You Like? + Best Pancakes Ever

I am too excited with my new blog theme!

I was seriously brainstorming all week and finally got it!

I’m probably most excited about my NEW SIDEBAR!

After the poll from Monday, I realized everyone liked something pinkish and something in the background.

So, with my blog name, In Shape Cupcake, I decided to create a background using a dumbbell and a cupcake.

I hope you like it and I am still looking to always improve it. So suggestions are always nice Smile

Breakfast

I think I made the best and easiest pancakes ever this morning.

The Two Ingredient Pancake…Inspired by Izy from Top With Cinnamon! She’s 17, by the way! And has an awesome blog!

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium banana
  • 2 whole eggs

 

Additional Ingredients I added

  • 1 TBSP Chia Seeds
  • 1 dash of Vanilla extract
  • Eyeballed some baking powder—you really can’t go wrong with this unless you put like 3 tbsp of it.

Syrup

  • 1 or + TBSP of Jelly/Jam of choice
  • Melt in microwave 20seconds

Directions: Mash the banana. Whisk in the 2 eggs. Add what ever else you would like, you could put almond or peanut butter if you would rather. I highly recommend the baking powder and chia seeds.

Spray a skillet with oil and put on medium heat.

Be very, very PATIENT with these pancakes while they cook. It takes longer because there is no flour and such. They are very delicate and fluffy. Don’t mess them up!

ENJOY!

I got 4 1/2 pancakes out of this recipe.

It may not look all that beautiful…or as good as Izy’s. But, they are delicious!!!

Now, I’m going to try to figure out what to do today.

Have a great Saturday Open-mouthed smile
