* So, I obviously haven't posted since Sunday. I've been pretty thrown off for some reason with my husband in Texas. I haven't felt right about blogging since I haven't been working out (sad, I know). The only discrepancies I've had were some pretzel sticks dipped in PB and 3 bowls of Cheerios with raisins. Otherwise, I've stayed on track. I have been overeating a bit although they have been healthy choices..BUT- overeating is overeating and not a good combination with a lack of activity. Saturday I will get back into my routine and all shall be well. I shouldn't be so dependent on my routine (especially having the gym to escape to), but I am. I'm sure other factors (laziness, lack of motivation, etc) play a roll as well.


Here are some recipes I've tried this week, aside from the one posted below at breakfast:

"Melissa's Egg Muffins" - Loved these!

"Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies" - Didn't have the chocolate so I used 2/3C raisins

"Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes" - Some minor issues with the batter being too thin, but they worked just fine




- Coffee with sugar-free syrup & half/half

Meal 1:

- 2 "Healthy Low Carb Pancakes" with scrambled eggs (1 egg+1/2C whites) piled on top, all cooked in butter and drizzled with sugar-free maple syrup (I have to add that my pancakes didn't come out nearly as fluffy as in the picture, but they were good!)

Meal 2:

- 4.5oz of large shrimp cooked in butter, minced garlic, fresh lemon juice and sprinkled with a tiny bit of unsweetened shredded coconut

- A small sweet potato with butter & a healthy dose of cinnamon

Meal 3:

- Small handful of almonds

- Can of tuna with a little mayo, chopped romaine & raisins

- Plain pork rinds

Meal 4:

- "Dr Willey's Better Than Steroids" Post Workout Meal: Banana flavor (these are part of my bikini contest winnings)

Meal 5:

- 1.5C 4% cottage cheese with a little PB & a lotta cinnamon mixed in





*These were broken up into 5 sets of 10 each:

- 50 Pull-ups

- 50 Hindu Pushups (on 4in board)

- 50 Snatches per arm w/the 26

- 50 Double KB Front Squats: First 3 sets with the 44s, last 2 sets with the 35s

- 50 2-Arm Swings w/the 88

Thank you! It's always nice getting to see you girls and your kiddos. Well, John will be coming in late tonight, so I think I'll make it! 

You're welcome for the recipes. Just be warned that when making pancakes without traditional flour, the batter is usually thin and the pancakes not nearly as fluffy. I'm going to experiment with the coconut flour recipe by adding less liquid, some protein powder & fiber and a bit more baking powder to see if that beefs them up a bit. Flavor wise they are great tho!
