Well..please excuse my absence lately…last week definitely got the best of me, from work to practice, to the job at the gym, by Thursday I was just completely exhausted, and Friday was a 14 hour work day, unfortunately. (i’ll stop whining now, promise). On the upside of the exhaustion, my Field hockey team I coach had a night game and had a big win! YAY! (Besides the LATE night).
My job is going well! I’m still really liking everything.. This coming week is the first 5 day week of school..if any of you understand how
I act children act by Thursday in school you know how that goes. Friday was one LONG day, haha, but they’re sweet & hilarious. Don’t worry one day I plan on an “Overheard in Kindergarten” post….. Also, if I had a dime for every shoe I’ve tied -I’d be rich.
Fitness wise I didn’t go to the gym every morning last week- one day I apparently had 2 alarms set that I don’t remember turning off and going back to sleep. Oh well- sometimes sleep is a winner over working out if you need it! Another day my dad and I did a bike ride in the morning. This would totally be better if it would get light outside before 6:20am this means only time for a 40 minute ride…still better than none at all but now that I have actually put miles on my bike (somewhere around 600 miles this year!!…*proud) that feels so short. Reason #4billion I need an indoor trainer.
Yesterday was my first day off in literally 2 weeks and I had an awesome day at playing field hockey! My favorite physical activity of all! My team did okay, we actually didn’t have a goalie so that made things difficult haha but we did score and I scored 2 goals wahoo! … And now I’m sore. So. Sore. Getting in shape for stop and start kind of game is difficult unless you’re playing it all the time! I’ve never felt so out of shape haha ugh. Thank god I’m doing lifting for my back today..everything else would not work!
So between all of that stuff I had time to create an amazing almond flour Pancake recipe! My paleo and gluten free friends try it out!
This photo food collage makes me feel like such a foodie blogger!
Recipe (adapted from Delighted Momma blog) :
- 3/4 cup Almond meal
- 1 egg
- 2 TBSP Water
- I packet Stevia or sweetner of choice
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon (or a bit more!)
This made me two nice size pancakes that I topped with a agave nectar and some more cinnamon. These are very delicious if you love almond because it really does taste like almonds (duhhhh, i know). I had these before a bike ride and they were the perfect fuel! I also pondered making a bunch of them and throwing them in the fridge for breakfasts throughout the week! Delish!
- Would you try these pancakes?
