Sunday Chores and Pancakes!

February 10, 2014

It was a fairly typical Sunday for me. Nothing exciting. Sleeping in, house cleaning, breakfast……and OH YEAH!! Packing to go to Cancun in TWO days!!!! I think I’m ready!

After packing, I had a few more things on my “to do list”, one of which included exercise. I was struggling to get on the treadmill yesterday afternoon. I finally got ON the treadmill. Then I messed with my phone while literally standing on the belt. I finally turned ON the treadmill and walked at a pace of 2.0 mph while playing on my phone…..for almost 20 minutes!!

Then I started my 5K training app. I watched the Olympics while I did my treadmill workout. Watching all of those incredible athletes with ridiculous endurance was quite a motivator for my workout. I stayed on the treadmill an additional 20 minutes and it ended up being a great workout!

What motivates you when YOU exercise?

Yesterday’s eats……


Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Pancakes and Topping = 4 PPV!



 Carb Satisfaction, without the Carb’s…



The batter that creates these little beauties? Eggs and banana’s.



Eight Tasty Thin Pancakes!!



 All the comfort of traditional pancakes…..



I originally found this recipe on another Blog. Click HERE for Danica’s Original Recipe for these tasty 4 Points+ Pancakes!!

I made these recently and topped them with Better n’ Peanut Butter.

Today? I was craving cinnamon…….

The Batter is the same, but the toppings are different!


2 Eggs

1 Banana

1 packet of Truvia (optional)

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Dash of Cinnamon

Today’s Topping

Warm Cinnamon Apples


Mixing this in a blender with just a few pulses, makes a nice batter.

Pour batter onto a medium low, preheated skillet, coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cook for about 3 minutes.



Flip and continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes.



Top with your favorite toppings! 



Love Cinnamon as much as I do? Enjoy this with your pancakes!
