Sunday Chores and Pancakes!

February 10, 2014 — 2 Comments

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?

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!

Ingredients

2 Eggs

1 Banana

1 packet of Truvia (optional)

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Dash of Cinnamon

Today’s Topping

Warm Cinnamon Apples

Directions

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.
