If you want something that lasts..

I decided to post this pancake recipe TONIGHT in case it may come in handy for anyone’s breakfast tomorrow!

Protein Oat Pancakes

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • dash of milk (I used Coconut Milk to moisten the mixture- you may not need to)


This is really pretty easy. Mix all the ingredients. Pour desired amount on hot skillet. Flip. Eat.

I topped mine with a drizzle of honey

Not pictured is the dallop of sunflower butter I used every few bites or so. These two cakes left me full for hours. I was able to bust out the workout I posted earlier, and I had energy to spare!

Speaking of energy, I attended the Global Energy Career Expo downtown today to see if there was any chance someone was looking to offer this American a job.

I talked to a few different companies- some of which were too small to bother with LMO’s (Labor Market Opinions, the process for which a foreigner can acquire a job) and others just referred me to their website to upload my resume. Kind of a downer, but at least I tried.

Just an FYI: If you read my posts through an e-mail subscription or Google Reader, click over to my site- it changed! Pretty, huh?!

Jenny from the block

A couple of announcements:

1.) I finally added a “workouts” page for easy access to all the workouts I post.

2.) I am officially nutcaseinpoint.com now! Aka: I bought my domain name. Probably not super exciting to anyone but me.

3.) My bestest friend is having a baby GIRLLLLLL and I can finally say it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On to the workout…

I have been spoiled. Teaching two outdoor bootcamps has really converted me to an outdoor worker-outer. So, because it is beautiful out, I am going to get my sweat on outside. My “block” to be exact.

My house is somewhere in this picture, I’m just not going to tell you which it is. But, it is somewhere along this makeshift track that I am going to use for my cardio portion of today’s workout. (Note: the ‘sides’ have a good incline. You just can’t tell in this 2-D pic)

Round 1

  • Run the block (Crap, now I have this song in my head)
  • 10 spiderman pushups
  • 10 star jumps
  • 10 burpees
  • x3

Round 2

  • Run the block (lunge the sides)
  • 10 squats with single arm overhead press
  • 10 curtsey lunge with lateral raise
  • 10 plank rows

Round 3

  • Run the block (skip jump the sides)
  • 10 one legged bicep curl w/overhead press (switch legs halfway)

I’m off to get this started..hope everyone is having a great Thursday!
