- Friday (3/15): Total body workout, run/walk intervals
- Saturday (3/16): Deck of Cards workout
Here’s the workout I did yesterday:
It was challenging since most all the moves were compound exercises (target more than one area), but it was really great to be able to break them up with some cardio. Plus, the cardio got my heart rate up (more calorie burn!) and allowed me to move and groove to my playlist.
My playlist that included BSB and Whitney and TLC. It was awesome.
Moving on to recent eats…
I made this Chunky Monkey Mug Cake and it was DEEE-lish.
It was made with: 1 mashed banana, 2 tbsp PB2, 1 egg white, 2 T cocoa powder, a few drops Stevia. After fully combining the ingredients, I tossed in a couple tablespoons of chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes and you’re done!
Polenta topped with paleo turkey meatballs (the key ingredient is ALMOND MEAL!!), veggie marinara and cheddar.
Slaw Dogs. With sriracha, of course!
Slow Cooker Creamy Chipotle Chicken Tortellini
Cinnamon Pear Pancakes
For these, you’ll need:
- 1 c flour
- 2 1/4 t baking powder
- 1/4 t salt
- 2 t cinnamon
- 1 t sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup +1T almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 pear
Here’s what you do:
1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients.
3. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Stir until incorporated.
4. Stir in 1/2 of chopped pear.
5. Pour on hot, prepared griddle. Flip when top starts to bubble.
6. Top cakes with remaining slices pear and a shake of cinnamon. Makes 8 pancakes.
That’s all for now!
