So last nights’ events turned out to be quite interesting!
As I mentioned, Jay and I headed out to get him some new running shoes. Well, being the huge dork that I can be, I proceeded to slam my hand shut in the car door. HOLY COW does that hurt! I’d honestly never done that before, but geez louise, the door actually clicked right shut. Luckily, nothing is broken, just a little puffy and sore. :oops:
(That whole episode happened before we even left the driveway.) Thankfully, we had no problems getting the boy his running shoes, and he actually got the male version of the same Asics running shoes that I have! What can I say, he has good taste. ;)
So we came home, and Jay hopped on the treadmill to start his training (until we get some kind of mile tracker/stopwatch/etc. it’s hard to do the program outside.) Well, about 15 minutes into it, I hear him yell from the basement, “Babe, I think the treadmill is broken!”…
Turns out, the belt has gotten loose and started “skipping” while he was running. Luckily, he found some info online that looks like there’s a way we should just be able to tighten it, but really…talk about a double whammy in one night! :roll: It’s a good thing I had all the cute boys from The Bachelorette to watch. ;)
Workout + Breakfast
I started my morning with a couple videos from Exercise on Demand: “Less is More Pilates” & “Less is More Yoga”. Both of them ended up totaling about 45 minutes, and my body is feeling nice, long, and strong. :)
As for breakfast, I have been craving pancakes for days. Just the mere thought of the fluffy, moist goodies gets me excited. However, I still have quite a large tub of cooked wheatberries in my fridge that need to be eaten, so I figured I should try to incorporate them somehow. After scoping around blog land for an idea, I finally came across one at Tina’s blog.
Wheatberry & Flax Blueberry Oatmeal Pancake
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 cup cooked wheatberries
- 2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/3 cup blueberries
- Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, except blueberries.
- Preheat a skillet over medium heat, spray with non-stick cooking spray, and pour batter in while shaping it into a “pancake” with spatula.
- Place blueberries in pancake.
- Heat for 3-5 minutes until ready to flip and then heat other side until cooked through.
- Top with your favorite toppings and ENJOY! :)
My pancake got the special treatment of 1 tbsp PB2, a drizzle of light maple syrup, and more bloobs. ;)
Honestly, the pancake itself was good, but a little bland at times. I think if I were to make it again, I’d probably add half of a mashed banana to try to give it a little extra sweetness. Either way, this baby was super filling and I was totally lovin’ the melting PB2 & warm blueberries on top! :-P
Now I’m off to run some errands, work on my “10 Random Facts” after being tagged from Nancy, try making a new chilled soup recipe, and then sneak in a little pool action. 8-)
Question for the Morning:
Do you like chilled soup? What’s your favorite?
I’m usually a big fan of gazpacho (unless it’s too spicy to finish!) ;)
